** The part where they go looking for the dead body is a reference to ''Film/StandByMe''. Even quoting the film ("You want to see a dead body?").

** The part where they go looking for the dead body is a reference to ''Film/StandByMe''. Even quoting the film ("You want to see a dead body?"). The endings are even similar, with Doughboy and Chris [[spoiler: both fading away as we learn about their deaths]] in their respective movies.

* BlackAndGreyMorality

to:

* BlackAndGreyMoralityBlackAndGreyMorality: The ghetto is filled with violence, police brutality, and murder. That being said, would one of them be alright if someone you care about is killed for no reason?

* BadassPacifist: Furious is an impressive and respected man because of his intellect and opting for cooperation among the community, ''not'' because of violence.



* DisappearedDad: Ricky and Doughboy have different fathers, yet neither is around. In fact, Furious is the only father in the neighbourhood. [[spoiler:And Ricky becomes one to his son after getting gunned down.]]

to:

* DisappearedDad: This is a deconstruction; one of the film's main themes is that children need their father in order to be properly raised into a responsible person, the absence of one can prove negative for the child. Ricky and Doughboy have different fathers, yet neither is around. In fact, Furious is the only father in the neighbourhood. [[spoiler:And Ricky becomes one to his son after getting gunned down.]]


Added DiffLines:

* GoodParents: Differing parenting styles and being divorced aside, Furious and Reva prove to be competent parents to their son, Tre. Disciplining him when he acts out and being affectionate when needed.


Added DiffLines:

* OpenMindedParents: Furious sees no problem with giving an adult Tre condoms when he has a sexual encounter or moving in with his girlfriend, Brandi.


Added DiffLines:

* TheirFirstTime: [[spoiler:Tre and Brandy have sex for the first time after the former was harassed by Officer Coffey.]]

* AdultFear: A numerous amount given the setting and themes of the movie.
** The first scene opens with Tre showing some of his peers a dead, rotting body.
** A man breaks into Furious's home where his young son was also staying.
** A young Doughboy getting smacked by an older teen.
** A young Doughboy and Dooky are sent to prison for ''adults'' after they ere caught stealing.
** Tre (now an adult) was almost shot while walking across a street.
** Tre is harassed by a racist cop. And what makes it even more frightening is that is the same cop who attempted to be friendly with Tre when he was a child.
** [[spoiler:Brenda and Janice bursting into tears after they see Ricky's bloody body.]]
* AintTooProudToBeg: [[spoiler:One of the people who (presumably) helped kill Ricky, begs Doughboy to not shoot hi, citing that he wasn't the one who pulled the trigger that ended Ricky's life. Doughboy just shoots him anyway.]]
* AmicableExes: Downplayed with Furious and Reva. While Reva trusts Furious to take care of their son, they also get into their fair share of fights when it comes to raising Tre.



* BrotherSisterIncest: Discussed. While on the phone with Brandi, Tre jokingly states that if his dad and her mom get together they would do the whole "incest thing".



* ClusterFBomb

to:

* ClusterFBombCharacterTics: Whenever Furious is upset (usually at Tre) he is seen rolling some iron-like balls in his hands.
* ChickMagnet:
** Gender-inverted. As children, Brandi got the attention of Ricky, Doughboy, and Tre.
** When Tre makes his introduction as an adult he gets the attention of ''three'' girls. He also is in a relationship with Brandi.
** Furious is implied to be one -- Besides his ex Reva, Brenda is implied to like him, and a phone conversation from Tre and Brandi implies that Brandi's mom likes him as well.
* ClusterFBomb: The f-word is used an abundant amount of times.



* DisappointedInYou: [[spoiler:While Furious doesn't say it to Tre when he comes home from thinking about going after the people who killed Ricky (and he didn't do anything like that), he is angry that his son ran off like he did earlier. He doesn't say a word. He just goes to his room and slams the door.]]



* DudeMagnet: As children, Brandi got the attention of Ricky, Doughboy, and Tre.


Added DiffLines:

* AMinorKidroduction: A longer example than most, but the movie opens up with a young Tre and later introduces his equally young friends: Ricky, Doughboy, and Dooky.


Added DiffLines:

* OutlivingOnesOffspring: [[spoiler:By the end, Brenda has lost both of her sons.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SharedFamilyQuirks: Both Tre and Furious answer the phone with a "Who dis?"


Added DiffLines:

* TeenPregnancy:
** Furious and Reva were only 17 when they had Tre.
** Ricky becomes one after the TimeSkip into him in high school. He has had a baby son with his girlfriend Janice, but their needs are provided for by Brenda.

Added DiffLines:

* AbusiveParents:
** Brenda is an emotional distant and abusive to Doughboy.
** A ''severely'' neglectful example in the form of Sheryl, who rather get high than properly care for her kids. In fact, her first appearance was because Tre came to return one of her kids who wandered ''in the streets''.

* NWordPrivileges: Subverted. The black police officer Coffey uses the N-word freely... because he's a terrifying BoomerangBigot who hates other blacks. When he uses it, it's with genuine malcontent.
