Snake[2] (or the Snake Predator),[2] also known as the Shadow Predator,[3] was a Yautja encountered by Mike Harrigan aboard the Yautja Mother Ship hidden beneath Los Angeles in 1997. He was a member of the Los Angeles hunting party.


Snake and his clan mates were mostly absent from the conflict in Los Angeles during 1997, but they confronted Harrigan aboard their ship after he defeated the City Hunter in a hand-to-hand duel. Seeing that Harrigan had won an honorable battle, they spared him, collecting the City Hunter's body while the party's leader Greyback honored the detective with an ancient flintlock pistol. Harrigan escaped the ship before the Predators left Earth. A notable trait was his shorter hair and animal furs that adorned his armor/gear.



  • Snake's name likely comes from his skin patterns on his head.
