Elders are Yautja warriors who have distinguished themselves in battle or by their leadership. Predator Elders are seen in Predator 2 and Alien vs. Predator. In Alien vs. Predator, the Elder's armor, clothes, and mask look distinctly different than the other Predators. Elders in the Predator series show respect by giving a gift to someone who can best or help a Predator in battle. Although an Elder has never been seen fighting, it can be assumed that they are skilled in the way of the Yautja Hunter.
- In the behind the scenes for Predator 2, the production crew refer the Elder in the film as Grey Back. The production crew said that he resembles a silverback gorilla.
