* AntiVillain: Sonny, of course.

* AntiVillain: Sonny, of course. He's a pretty nice guy as long as you don't do anything to anger him or hurt the people in the neighborhood and stresses to C that he only does what he does because he has to. He's even shown to be pretty progressive in regards to race, encouraging C to pursue a relationship with Jane despite what the rest of the neighborhood feels about black people.



* DoNotCallMePaul: Calogero gets the nickname "C" from Sonny and ends up being called that by everyone, except his father, who will not do it. And Jane, who likes "Calogero" better.

** They don't call him Crazy Mario for nothing, but even he thinks Ralphie is insane for lighting a cigarette when he has a bunch of molotov cocktails at his feet.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Though the movie was filmed in New York City, it wasn't entirely filmed in the Bronx. In fact, the only time the Bronx appears proper is a scene set and filmed on City Island. The rest of the time, the Astoria neighborhood in Queens and the Sheepshead Bay neighborhood in Brooklyn are doubling for the Bronx. Chazz Palminteri said that the reason for this was because he didn't want to anger his friends who still lived in the real neighborhood.
