* 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.]]

Moved Trivia to its own page.
* 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.

Just played that particular level, and Sully asks them what they're doing back there, so it goes with the earlier mission in the game.
** 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.

* DressingAsTheEnemy: In Cochise's flashback mission, the doorman at the pool hall will ask for a hefty amount of cash to allow Cochise and Snow in, and while cash can be obtained by mugging the many civilians or robbing a couple of stores, cops are quick to appear in this level. Paying the doorman can be avoided, howeverm by taking and wearing a hat from any member of the Boppers. The doorman will confuse Cochise for a member of the Boppers and will allow him and Snow to enter without needing to pay (and letting you keep that cash for much needed flash for the boss fight).

* FantasticDrug: Flash, which restores health. One of the game's bonus missions in the neutral Coney Island zone is taking several hits of Flash, [[InterfaceScrew which makes everything go blurry]], then try to find and bring back a foam finger in an allotted time. One of the game's final missions (after finishing the storyline) is to acquire and then take 10 hits of Flash, which will allow the player to go into instant rage mode if their health is full when they use the flash. * FlatCharacter: Ash. He barely gets any screen time and is resorted to being the Player 2 character in the first few tutorial missions during Rembrandt's initiation into the Warriors. Because Ash isn't shown a lot, his character never develops, and the only personality trait we get from him is an eagerness to prove he's tough. Unlike the rest of the main Warriors cast, Ash has no backstory other than he joined the gang along with Rembrandt, but we never see them interact (Ash seems to be most friendly with Vermin instead of Rembrandt). However, [[spoiler: Ash is killed by the Destroyers halfway through the game and this event sets off a war against the gang by the Warriors.]]
