For all your trigger happy folk out there. 

In your opinion what is the most epic Xenomorph kill in the franchise...


1. the original airlock kill (Ripley). The scene that nearly started its own genre.


2. For close encounters.. (Hicks) a heroic and nail-biting scene that culminated in this epic xeno coup de grâce...too bad about Drake


3. The one-liner with the biggest punch line in the franchise (Ripley)  


4. The Heavy Metal death (Morse) not really many to pick from in Alien 3, but they knocked it off the perch in style.


5. Snakes and ladders (Johner) where we all thought Christie would finally cut sick with his duel-wield pistols.....Johner did up instead.


6. Flaming Fifield (Vickers) The closest thing we got to a xeno kill in Prometheus. In the deleted scene Fifield was looking decidedly xeno i guess...


7. The Nu-Queen (Daniels)? hopefully won't suffer the same demise as Shaw....

Nice topic indeed.

1 and 4 are my favorites. And I would add to your list one more:

"He survived, he’s now in Disneyland in Orlando, and no way am I going back there. How did he end up in Disneyland? I saw him in Disneyland, Jesus Christ!"

Something a xenomorph learns while in primary school: airlocks are bad for health! #1 for me.

Alien 3 molten lead- I think the sucked out into space deaths are more than done to death.

I thought this was about the Xeno killing humans

both of mine are from the second movie.  Firstly, the one that gets crushed under the APC and secondly the one that gets shot by Ripley (as she protects Newt & gets a bit thrown back by the gun's backlash herself) during the attack in the Medlab.  And in fact, shortly after this, Vasquez holding her ground with grenades was rather cool too

If we can add a Neomorph kill, then I would vote for Walter's 5-Finger Death Punch in the wheat field!

ALIEN3 hot lead death is brilliant.

Or the poor Newborn being sucked out into infinity

The ugly abomination Alien baby in Alien Res sucked out the hole is my favorite because I LOVED seeing that thing go away and suffer in the process. What a stupid piece of work.

Starlogger The Alien baby loved you too, I think he even said your name before he was sucked out (;~;)

Dark Nebula nice one!




PraetorianModerator2414 XPAug-22-2017 5:20 PM

Lawrence of Arabia that scene is pretty brutal too lol. Yeah I agree, If you turn the volume up real loud just as its skull breaks up and sucks through the hole I think you can hear it whisper.....starloggggggeeeeeerrr I loved you.....

I think the best kill is the first Alien. It really show how difficult to get rid of the xenomorph is. How it get harpooned, and yet after that comes back to finally get repelled by the Narcissus' thrusters. So resilient you have to ask yourself: "is it even dead?" I really hate to see dismembered xemomorphs, getting crunched like ****roaches. That is not my idea of a "perfect organism".

ChestbursterMember936 XPAug-22-2017 8:19 PM

The Alien in Covenant got fried by thrusters and shot at before finally being crunched and even then was still trying to kill Daniels before it's demise. Tough son of a ***** if I say so myself. Tougher than the Xenomorphs in Aliens at least cuz they just had to be shot.

The Runner in Alien 3 was another good one. It never really got to show how physically resilient it was, but it proved an elusive, cunning, and aware hunter. Coupled with its speed and agility, it was damn hard to kill.

IRaptus Alien 3 Xenomorph was tough af to nail down. It was like it knew what they were trying to do. Even then, after having hot metal poured on him he was still rearing to go.

alien 3 I think had the best death.

surprised you didn't include the queens death from avp.

LoL (gagging noise.)

TrilobiteMember8212 XPAug-22-2017 11:15 PM

At least we saw the Runner die. With the other movies- they always get sucked into space and we can't ever be sure. Well, except for the Newborn.

I'm going with 7 because Daniels swinging around on a cable while shooting 50ft or so in the air while a Xeno is running around is just badass.  She then gets retracted back onto the lifter and then slides off and starts dangling again while shooting!  I love it!  Still, there are some good other choices to choose from.

Image result for daniels shooting at xeno

What a great shot!  Still, watching the video with audio and not looking at a picture is the best way to experience such an epic killing!  I like my Xeno killings with a touch of a girl being a badass.  


NeomorphMember1656 XPAug-24-2017 7:00 AM

Alien movies have done the airlock thing a million times so that is getting old. I would probably vote for the cross death/Ripley suicide from Alien 3. Is there anyone else that notices that she is falling down in the shape of a cross? There is some religious symbolism in Alien 3, I think that is a very interesting thing.
