* WhiteGangBangers: The Warriors gang is mixed-race. On the DVD, the director admits that he bowed to [[ExecutiveMeddling executive pressure]] to cast some white actors. Most of the other gangs appear to be homogenous, though not all are. 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. The Baseball Furies' half-white-half-black makeup makes it hard to tell if they're mixed-race or not.

** Because of the time frame of the film, we never find out what become of Ajax after getting arrested.We also never find out what happens to Cleon, although he was almost certainly either beat to death or arrested.

* TooDumbToLive: Ajax, [[spoiler: He decides to break away from the group to score with a lone woman in the park, despite the others' warnings over how stupid the idea is. She turns out to be an undercover cop, with backup nearby.]].
** 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.]]
** Could also be applied to Vermin and Cochise when they meet the Lizzies. Granted, they don't know everyone is gunning for them yet, but they don't seem the least bit suspicious when this female gang they meet on the street is . . . really really friendly. Vermin initially questions how they even know about the Warriors, but then immediately chalks it up to their hardcore reputation.

True to the trope, the original version of the scene had Vermin getting killed.

* MightyGlacier: In relative to the rest of the Warriors, Ajax qualifies. He's a musclebound guy, probably the largest and strongest member of the gang, and he noticeably lags behind when they are sprinting everywhere.

** Gang names are chosen, sometimes given, based on a person's characteristics or role. [[note]][[Film/AnimalHouse Although sometimes you just get the name given to you.]][[/note]]
