* HeyItsThatGuy
** The DJ is played by the late Lynne Thigpen, best known as the Chief in the ''Series/WhereInTheWorldIsCarmenSandiego'' tv show.
** Fox later moves on to bigger and better things working on the south pole in ''Film/{{The Thing|1982}}''.
** Luther later became T-Bird in ''Film/TheCrow''.
*** He was also [[Film/{{Commando}} going to]] [[KillYouLast be killed last]]. [[spoiler: ILied]].
*** Also, he must have been pretty old when he moved to New York, considering he spent time first in the [[Creator/SvenHassel French Foreign Legion and later in a Wehrmacht penal battalion.]]
** Swan apparently left the gang to [[{{Xanadu}} open a nightclub with Gene Kelly and Olivia Newton-John.]]
** Ajax became, of all things, a cop! Though he spent much of his time [[Series/{{Dexter}} training his adoptive son to be a more efficient serial killer]], so maybe it's not that much of a stretch.
** One of the cops was played by Sonny Landham, whom you probably know best as "Billy" in ''Film/{{Predator}}''.
* HeyItsThatVoice: The game keeps a lot of the original cast where possible.
** [[Music/RunDMC DMC]] voices Scopes.

**Possibly. In the arena mode, two of the stages are at the graveyard the Warriors regroup at after Cyrus is shot. They are the only stages not present in the actual levels. In one mission you can overhear a conversation between a group of Jones Street Boys, and sometimes they'll talk about a time The Warriors screwed them over in the graveyard, which is mentioned no where else in the game. It seems that at least one additional level was planned, but scrapped for whatever reason.
** A spiritual sequel (unrelated to the film) was planned by Rockstar. The game was to be titled ''We Are The Mods'' and was to be set in 1960s England during the mods and rockers brawls.

* ThrowItIn: David Patrick Kelly ad-libbed the iconic scene in which he clanks the empty bottles together and calls out a challenge to the Warriors. Ajax's James Remar also ad-libbed his line, "I'm gonna shove that bat up your ass and turn you into a Popsicle!"
