That's every single Predator story added. Feel free to correct any mistakes.

Having looked back at Predator: 1718, it can be argued that it is about a different Predator, pistol and human than Greyback, 1715 flintlock pistol and Raphael Adolini. Obviously this wasn't intended to be the case as the pistol in the comic has the same engraving and the pirate says "take it" as his final words, but visuals in comics can be retconed. They never say any names at least.

Whatever the case, movies rank higher than comics in canonicity, so Prey is the true backstory of the Raphael Adolini 1715 flintlock pistol.

What about all the novels, short stories and remaning games?
There is also one last comic book Predator story left "Predator: Xenogenesis"

I'll add what I can add, let's just say that. At the least, all the comics will be added. Eventually. I'll add the other games too I suppose.

That comic is part of an event crossing over with Aliens and AVP. I was going to add that alongside the Alien and AVP Xenogenesis comics.

The Female War comic book doesn't actually mention that Ripley is synthetic unlike the novel. I suppose it's because they would have to heavily alter the book to add in her revelation that she's not the real Ripley, whereas with everything else they can just change the names to fit the canon.

Humanity sure bounced back from almost total annihilation of Earth in 2192 pretty well. They forgot all about it by 2381 because of an event known as the Big Deletion. Apparently Ripley is more important to remember. :p

To be fair, it is almost 200 years later.

I completely missed that Marvel Comics' Predator places Predators in 2010. No idea how that fits with Hunting Grounds, in which Isabelle spent a whole year on the planet being hunted and returned to Earth in 2025, and The Predator supposedly being set prior to that movie according to the director. Maybe time works differently on the Planet Reserve (time dilation)? Ugh, no thanks.

I could also just ignore that comic. It wasn't actually part of the story anyway.

Yeah, that "Timeline" for the Marvel Predator comic kinda bothered me when it came to Predators placement. In any case, I completely disregarded it when other entries suggest otherwise.
