* DarkerAndEdgier[=/=]SpiritualAntithesis: This film is far more violent, dramatic, downbeat, darker and edgier than ''Film/BoyzNTheHood''. The film has almost no lighter moments, mainly for the ending. ALL in this film is PlayedForDrama. Both films chronicle the struggles of the ghetto. But While John Singleton's film followed Tre, a decent kid who ultimately stays straight and escapes the hood, Menace follows one of the many youths who succumb to the streets and don't make it out. The Creator/HughesBrothers wanted their film to sort of be the reverse side of the coin that we saw in ''Boyz''.

* Deleted Scene: A prison riot was cut from the film because it was deemed too intense and would've bumped it up to an NC-17 and also because the Hughes brothers didn't know how to film an action sequence yet.

** The whole film does a good job of depicting an environment so [[CrapsackWorld wretched and hopeless]] for so long, it ''actively creates'' people like this.

* RaisedByGrandparents: Caine was raised by his grandparents after his father (a drug dealer) was shot to death and his mother (a crack fiend) died of an overdose. It's clear that they can't keep him from getting involved in the thug life, and Caine's grandfather eventually evicts him from their home.
