** He tells Cain to get out of the car to spare him from what's coming, saying [[ItHasBeenAnHonor "I ain't goin' out like that."]]. It's actually quite a noble scene.

** Chauncey probably takes home the blue ribbon here. He's unpopular (and barely tolerated) by his associates, he's lazy, he gets Caine and O-Dog arrested with a sloppy car theft plot, he sexually harasses Ronnie (in front of her child and her boyfriend), and finally seals O-Dog's fate by sending the videotape to the police. He's an absolute bastard.

* GenreSavvy: While being carjacked, Harold knows there's pretty much zero chance these guys are going to let him live, even if he gives up the car.

** He then tries to [[ISurrenderSuckers pull his own pistol while saying he's complying]], which gets him killed right then.

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: See the quote below. This is all the excuse O-Dog needs to murder the convenience store owner and his wife. The first moment (of several) showing O-Dog is a [[AxCrazy completely murderous psychopath]] who will kill anyone, anytime over anything at all.

''Menace II Society'' is a 1993 urban drama directed by the Creator/HughesBrothers (in their debut). Along with ''BoyzNTheHood'', it is one of the defining films of the early '90s and helped popularize the urban crime drama.

* DarkerAndEdgier: This film is far more violent, dramatic, downbeat, darker and edgier than ''BoyzNTheHood''. The film has almost no lighter moments, mainly for the ending. ALL in this film is PlayedForDrama.
** There's a reason for that. 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.
