Two of Arnold Schwarzenegger most iconic roles from the 1980s are Dutch from Predator and the T-800 from Terminator—but what if they are, essentially, the same character? No, I’m not saying Dutch is the Terminator, but what if he was the model for the original prototype? It’s a theory first posed by Cracked.com, and it’s much less outlandish and improbable than you might think.
Check out the video below from UPROXX; it illustrates (literally) the various threads that form the foundation of this theory. After watching, let us know what you think in the Comments section. Could it be possible that Dutch was Skynet’s model for the T-800? Let’s discuss in the Comments section!
Official Synopsis: Could Major Dutch be the T-800? This theory connecting ‘Predator’ and the ‘Terminator’ series thinks so. The Predator, Aliens, and Terminator universes are connected in more ways than one. They’ve shared antagonists, and sometimes characters like Ripley in the spinoff comics. but Cracked writer David Israel Nunez takes the overlapping franchises to a new level with his theory which connects the origin of Terminator‘s T-800 killing machine to Major Dutch Schaefer — the musclebound U.S. government killing machine in Predator. Basically, Dutch was the basis for the T-800.
