Terminators are designed to terminate, in other words, to kill, other life forms.

The primary mission of Terminators is often to kill a specific individual, such as Sarah Connor or John Connor. Many Terminators have a secondary mission to kill key members of the Resistance, such as Kate Brewster, Martin Bedell, or several key lieutenants.

Terminators can target both humans and Terminators for termination. Several series of Terminators, such as the T-900 or T-X, are designed specifically to destroy other reprogrammed Terminators.
