Gah, this reminds me of a short-lived freeform play-by-post game I was in, years ago, which mashed up the Xenomorphs (and Yautja) and White Wolf’s World of Darkness (and a few other things). Yes, there was a Vampire Xenomorph, and a Werewolf one. And a cyborg one, with a multiweapon limb like the T-X/’Terminatrix’ from Terminator 3 (can’t recall if the multiweapon thing was on one of its forearms, or its tail).

Well, the cyborg Alien would at least have some grounding in the franchise, since I recall them appearing in levels throughout one of the first AVP shooters for the PC. Although god only knows why Weyland-Yutani or whatever would feel the need to 'enhance' the Xenomorph by giving it weighty cybernetic limbs.

From what I recall of the campaign, it wasn't Weyland-Yutani that made the cyber-Xenomorph, it was another corp; I can't recall if it had any ties to Weyland-Yutani, but it definitely had ties to the Technocracy (of White Wolf's Mage: the Ascension). The same corp caught the vampire Xenomorph (which got that way after eating a few regular Vampire: the Masquerade-style vamps), and attempted to replicate its abilities.

It was a very weird game.

(My char was ex-KGB who was lead to the Tunguska site by Baba Yaga, found a crashed Yautja ship, and used its power cores to fashion ten rings of fantastic power; eating some Yautja flesh [he was trapped in the ship for months] gave him a prolonged life, allowing him to use his rings to fight supernatural nasties for decades.)

There's also the Terminator/Aliens/Predator crossover mini from Dark Horse. In which one of the Skynet infiltrators (it set the Aliens future to have happened after Skynet era, which had been mostly forgotten by then) created Alien Terminators.

It's not really DH's best work, but at least it had entertaining action scenes.

They forgot a robot apocalypse?

Well, we are never told how far into the future Alien takes place, I believe? I think it's stated sometimes in the Terminator movies - or at least in EU stuff - that the war against the machines is going badly for Skynet, making their attempts to kill the Connors in the past a saving throw of sorts. So whilst it probably went on for several decades, I imagine the war against the machines couldn't possibly last forever.

Well, since Ripley spent some time in cryo between Alien and Aliens, we can safely say it is at least 57 years into the future. (:

How would a cyborg be able to cope with the molecular acid blood, I geekily wonder?

If it's resistant tissue, maybe the inside of the tubes are coated with vein tissue. Alternately, it could keep it mechanically pressurized.

There was a comic that had a Terminator with a cloned Alien exoskeleton around it's robot body instead of human flesh. Some vs combination of Alien, Predator and Terminator.
