* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: When an early Tutorial mission tasks Rembrandt with spraying a Warriors burner over the Destroyers HQ, Ajax ditches the party for a short period to attend to some unseen business. When the mission concludes, we see he had snuck into the Destroyers base while the entire gang was passed out from partying, and sprayed a red W (for Warriors) onto the leader of the gang's back. If Ajax had instead, say, killed the leader (and his lieutenants for good measure) in his sleep, the Destroyers probably would have disbanded and leave the Warriors in control of all of Coney Island, and avoid a handful of deaths and a full on war between the gangs down the line. Sure, he's part of a gang called [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy The Warriors]], so HonorBeforeReason might play a part in things, but it still would have saved a lot of trouble and been [[KickTheDog totally in character for Ajax to have done.]]
** When you, as Cleon, speak to Ajax in the hangout right after that mission, Ajax says "I wish you would've let me finish them". Cleon had tasked Rembrandt to tag all over Destroyer turf as payback for the Destroyers tagging the Warriors hangout, and thus he likely didn't order Virgil to be killed (seen especially as it's Vermin who suggests putting the burner on the Destroyers hangout during the mission), and the others to serve as muscle to protect Rembrandt. He likely did not want any deaths to prevent any unexpected retaliation, once again seen during hangout chatter after "Destroyed", where Vermin says that the Warriors had never murdered any Destroyers. This, however, creates confusion when Ajax kills Sanchez later on, since we never see Cleon give such an order.

Added DiffLines:

* DoomedByCanon: Because the game eventually takes place at the same time that the movie does, several major characters are still destined to bite the dust. [[spoiler: Cleon is killed by the Riffs after being falsely accused of killing their leader, Cyrus. Fox is also killed when he wrestles with a cop in a subway station and is tossed towards an oncoming train. Ajax is arrested for attempted rape on an undercover cop and is likely spending the rest of his time in jail.]]

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: 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.

* RealityEnsues: Taking on the cops head-on is ''inadvisable'' and a quick way to get you all beaten if you're not careful.

* AwesomeMcCoolName: Many of the gang members run around with these (such as Saracens leader Edge), whereas others have rather unimpressive names (like the Turnbull's Birdie) and others simply use their normal names (pretty much all the members of the Hurricanes).



* HufflepuffHouse: The Saracens of Bensonhurst, described as a "heavy set" by Cleon. In exchange for rubbing out a rival gang, the Saracen leader promises to put in a good word with the Riffs. This is the only friendly gang in both the game and movie.

** You may find that gangsters have already called dibs on a few hiding spots (where your Warriors would normally duck and hide) ...Though you wouldn't know this the first time, since they are concealed in shadow. Trying to hide in the same spot as them will end up with them attacking you, blowing the cover of the shadows and attracting nearby cops.

** Ajax, of course. He's the most hotheaded individual in the whole gang and can be very effective at getting himself into major trouble, although in the game's most blatant case (barring the park incident that was also in the movie, of course) it wasn't ''entirely'' his fault. In the level that depicts his and Snow's first night as members of the gang, they intrude on Destroyers turf at Ajax's insistence (albeit not to fight, at least at first), get pelted with bricks and bottles in an ambush, have their trademark jackets stolen, and wind up having to take on the Destroyers' entire roster (except for Virgil) to get their "colors" back. It's initially a subversion, as Ajax and Snow manage to decimate the Destroyers' main leadership; Ajax even gets to hook up with their gang moll. But then, as they're heading back to West Coney later on, the moll appears on the fire escape above the street - [[{{Fanservice}} in her underwear]] - and loudly bids goodbye to Ajax, attracting the attention of a ''very'' large and ''very'' angry contingent of Destroyers who [[ChasedByAngryNatives chase Ajax and Snow down the entire length of the boardwalk]]. The Destroyers only break off the attack when confronted by all the other Warriors, and a stern Cleon lets Ajax know just how much of an idiot he is.

* MarathonLevel / TheMaze: The trainyard in "All-City". Navigating it is made more difficult by roving packs of Moonrunners and security guards. Unlike every other level, this one all takes place on a single map. So if you happen to die or reset, have fun re-tagging all of the graffiti you already sprayed.

** Also, in the fifteen level (No Permits, No Parley), the dialogue from the movie is kept in word-for-word, implying the Warriors have never met the Orphans before, even though they have, in the fifth level to be specific, and completely owned them. You'd think Sully wouldn't be so friendly towards them after they totally trashed his beloved car.

''The Warriors'' is a video game based on the CultClassic [[Film/TheWarriors movie of the same title]], developed by RockstarGames and released in 2005. The storyline acts as a prequel and recreation of the original film. Apart from a few platforming challenges, it controls like an arcade BeatEmUp, and is one of few successful examples of the genre in 3-D.

It's the year 1979, and the street gang known as the Warriors are in the middle of some tough times, a fact which isn't helped by them feuding with the larger, more established gang which also claims the territory around Coney Island: the Destroyers. The first act of the game revolves around the Warriors' founder, Cleon, and his struggle to maintain their slice of Coney Island. The second act focuses on the gang's efforts to make a name for themselves in the city. Finally, the third act finds Swan in control of the gang, now trapped in Manhattan during the events of the film.

** Vermin also threatens to become this after [[spoiler:the Destroyers finally declare all-out war on their West Coney rivals and murder Vermin's best friend, Ash]]. As Cleon is laying out the gang's attack strategy, the impulsive Vermin completely loses his temper: [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge "Bullshit! I'll kill 'em all [myself]!"]] He has to be physically restrained by the other Warriors.

* NoOneGetsLeftBehind: Part of the responsibilities of the Warchief is to herd everyone safety to the exit. In some missions, namely "Boys in Blue" and "No Permits, No Parley", the gang must be re-constituted before you can progress.

* PaletteSwap: Unleash the Fury difficulty swaps textures between The Warriors and The Baseball Furies, which can lead to a creepy and hilarious moment when you run into the Furies with Warriors textures.
** Made even funnier in the flashback mission where Ajax and Snow join the Warriors and have their vests stolen by the Destroyers. In Unleash the Fury difficulty, the vests are basically the entire Baseball Furies outfit and face paint, so when you see LC with his girlfriend and Ajax then going to have sex with her in the bathroom, you get a Baseball Fury instead of an attractive girl.

* GoForTheEye: Rembrandt's trademark attack, mainly with his strong grab attacks, is spraying paint into the opponent's eyes. The player can do this with any character as long as they have spray paint, making the opponent wince back for a moment, but it uses up one spray can from your inventory. The Moonrunners also have this as their trademark, spraying your eyes and blurring your vision for a few moments.
