* In ''Film/FastFive'' a reasonably well armed gang try move on Brian and Mia-and later Hobbs' team-when they enter the favela. First time, [[TheBusCameBack Vince]] (who's presumably a close associate if not in the gang himself) calls them. Second time, Hobbs and his crew [[AwesomeMoment just flash their military grade fire power]] and the gang wisely backs off.

** In ''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 the Luchadores are, well, you can probably [[MaskedLuchador 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; Mafias wear suits, ties, sunglasses and (if period-appropriate) fedoras, while Gangbangers wear head bandanas, wifebeaters and torn jeans.
