!!The film:

* 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.
* AntiClimaxBoss: [[spoiler: Luther. In the film and in the game.]]
* BaseBreaker: With no pun intended, the Baseball Furies. Some viewers think they're [[RuleOfCool awesome]]; others [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment wonder what the filmmakers were thinking]].
* CriticalDissonance: When it came out, the movie was roasted by critics, who lambasted it as a mindless, plotless, absurdly unrealistic violent schlockfest. However, it attracted considerable popularity, largely for being [[SoBadItsGood a mindless, plotless, absurdly unrealistic violent shlockfest.]]
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: "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.
* CultClassic: The film was popular in its day, especially due to the controversy it created, but has found a second wind as a campy, violent cult classic.
* HilariousInHindsight: The main fight is Warriors vs. Rogues. What, the [[VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft Warlocks]] and [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons Clerics]] couldn't show?
* IAmNotShazam: In the original Sol Yurick novel, the main gang was actually called the Dominators. The film avoided this trope by renaming them "the Warriors."
* MemeticMutation: Cyrus's rallying cry of "Can you dig it?" and Luther's taunt, "Warriors, come out to play!" pop up all over the place.
** The poster on the main page.
** "Shit the chicks are packed!!! THE CHICKS ARE PACKED!!!"
* {{Narm}}: [[spoiler: Cleon's]] death. Getting mauled to death by a gang? Horrific. Being surrounded and attacked with synchronized elbows? Pretty hilarious.
* OneSceneWonder: Cyrus.

!!The game:

* NightmareFuel: Chatterbox (and his art gallery) are creepy as fuck.
** The entire Baseball Furies mission. Being chased by ruthless gang members with baseball bats and face paint would freak anyone out.
* NoProblemWithLicensedGames: Among fans of the film, and even gamers in general, this is a much beloved adaptation of the film.
* UnwinnableByMistake: Taking too long on the final battle with Luther will result in your AI controlled team mates throwing all the available debris, meaning you can't use it yourself.
