* FightMagnet: The Warriors fight every gang they come across. Justified in that they are framed for a murder. ** As the Orphans point out, walking through someone's turf with your colors on is a challenge that requires the intruders to throw down or strip down. If word gets out locally that "the Warriors rolled through here and you didn't show", your gang loses respect. Since the Warriors refuse to go colors down, every gang they pass ''has'' to turn out.

** {{Homage}}: Of course, being based on Greek mythology, the Baseball Furies are The Furies, the Lizzies are the Sirens, and so on. The Hats come from somewhere, you know.

More TDTL
Added DiffLines:
** Interestingly, it's one of the few dark scenes preserved from the book, with slight differences: [[spoiler: It's two gang members, and the woman is just some drunkard sitting on a park bench. They would've survived it had one of them not try to snatch something from her purse.]]

Pragmatic Adaptation
Added DiffLines:
* PragmaticAdaptation: To say the film adaptation is loosely based on the Sol Yurick novel is putting it lightly. However, as the author noted in a subsequent reprint of the book, it was highly unlikely that Hollywood would've been able to make a profitable/successful movie based on the [[DarkerAndEdgier original plot and structure of the book]].
