* WhiteGangBangers: The New York of this film plays host to the most [[EqualOpportunityEvil ethnically diverse gangs]] yet seen; while everyone is [[{{Jerkass}} extremely misogynistic and violent]], nobody is racist and race is never once mentioned. The Warriors gang is roughly half-black half-white with one Hispanic character. On the DVD, the director admits that he bowed to [[ExecutiveMeddling executive pressure]] to cast some white actors. The other gangs are generally homogeneous, although often they have one white/black/Asian gang member present. Even the apparently all-black Riffs can be seen to include a white member or two in the background of some scenes, possibly due to a limited supply of black extras.

* AdaptationalHeroism: The titular Warriors are much less violent than their Dominator counterparts, who kill a random civilian for looking at them funny before gang-raping Mercy on his freshly dead body.

* ImprobablyCoolCar: In all fairness, the 1950's-vintage Cadillac hearse driven by the Rogues ''is'' pretty cool, but how they obtained it -- never mind how they learned to drive it -- is a mystery.
