** In ''Videogame/SaintsRowTheThird'' the Third Street Saints move to a new city run by a group called TheSyndicate, which itself is composed of three groups that act like street gangs. Morning Star acts like TheMafia, the Deckers are hackers who dress like they're from {{Tron}} and [[MaskedLuchador the Luchadores]] are, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin well, you can probably guess.]]

Gangbangers often fill the same role as TheMafia, but fit into a different archetype. Gangbangers are usually poor criminals, disorganized mobs who patrol ghettos, selling crack and getting into fights with rival gangs just for the hell of it, whereas Mafias are intelligent, very wealthy, diplomatic, often have connections to "legitimate" authorities, and more likely to plan assassinations and ambushes than just go around getting into fights. The two can overlap, but the distinctive dress will usually make the difference clear; Mafiosi wear suits, ties, sunglasses and (if period-appropriate) fedoras, while Gangbangers wear head bandanas, wifebeaters and torn jeans.

TheIrishMob can be either depicted as period-appropriate {{Gangbangers}} or as a kind of [[TheMafia Mafia]] (though don't ever call them that), depending on time period, location, and the creator's opinions. For instance, the Irish gangs (and all the other gangs, for that matter) in ''Film/GangsOfNewYork'' were the 19th-century equivalent of today's Bloods and Crips (they did wear top hats, but toppers were not considered highbrow in the 19th century and in fact carried the opposite connotation). The Irish Mob in ''Film/TheDeparted'', however, was much more Mafia-like.
