* HilariousInHindsight: Our protagonists name is Ponyboy. Around fifty years later in 2010, we see '''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' and its well-known fanbase with adult men and teenage boys.

** They're waterboarding him (very, ''very'' crudely) in the film. It still ''looks'' like they're drowning him, so still a MEH in-universe.

Added DiffLines:

* NightmareFuel:
** The Socs trying to kill Ponyboy and Johnny.
** The fire that the doctors outright admit will cripple Johnny for the rest of his life if not outright kill him. [[spoiler: Johnny was burned so horribly that he suffers for a day or two before finally dying.]]
** The rumble, while InUniverse treated as a climactic battle of good and evil, is in reality dozens of young men slugging each other to a pulp. The score of the scene in the film really gets across the fact that, even on this scale, WarIsHell.
** [[spoiler: Dallas, in despair after Johnny's death, gets himself killed by the police.]]
* SignatureScene: [[spoiler: Johnny's death.]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Narm}}: The extended cut replaces most of the movie score with generic surfer music, most annoyingly during the rumble.

* CanonSue: Johnny. He has no known flaws unlike the rest of the gang and isn't given any depth other than the fact that he's a NiceGuy who's abused by his parents, is Dally's MoralityPet, and is Ponyboy's best friend. The rest of the gang adores him and never gets angry at him, and Two-Bit even says that the gang can go without anyone but Johnny.

* TearJerker: Johnny's [[spoiler:death.]] And later, Dallas's [[spoiler:death]] because Johnny was the only thing he really cared about. The movie portrays this excellently.
