* AdaptationDisplacement: The movie is ''loosely'' based on little known book by Sol Yurick. In fact, it's more faithful to Xenophon's ''Anabasis'' than Yurick's modernized (and deconstructed) version.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Particularly ironic since - at least according to director Creator/WalterHill - the film was supposed to be set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Cyrus' plan of uniting the gangs and taking over the city sounds like it would have made a great movie, but it's a red herring that is quickly scrapped and forgotten.

** Near the end of the movie, on the subway ride back to Coney Island, two couples board the subway. One of the passengers is played by a young Debra Winger in one of her earliest roles.

* BaseBreaker: With no pun intended, the Baseball Furies. Some viewers think they're [[RuleOfCool awesome]]; others [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment wonder what the filmmakers were thinking]].

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic:
** "Last Of An Ancient Breed" by Desmond Child is a powerful song complete with an appropriate TitleDrop.
** "In The City" by Joe Walsh, while it sounds relaxing, sums up Swan's attitude at the end of the movie perfectly.
** Arnold [=McCuller=]'s version of "Nowhere To Run" is timed nicely as a threat to the Warriors.

* {{Narm}}: [[spoiler: Cleon's]] death. Getting mauled to death by a gang? Horrific. Being surrounded and attacked with synchronized elbows? Pretty hilarious.
** The action sequences in general seem more suited to a performance of ''WestSideStory'' than anything.
* OneSceneWonder: Cyrus.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: The opening introduced the Hi-Hats, a gang that dress like mimes, but we never got to see the Warriors beat up any mimes.
