!!''Comic:''
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: [[MindScrew Yes.]]
** The end of the first comic has a random side plot with Warrior coming to the aid of a woman attempting suicide after being pelted with rocks and called a "half breed". Before that, you also had some guy who comes out of nowhere and says "Believe this"; he is never mentioned again.
** Also of note: ''absolutely everything else that happens.''
* DesignatedHero: Warrior
* MartyStu: Warrior
* MemeticMolester: The Christmas Special has one picture of Warrior posing as SantaClaus while shirtless with a kid on his lap and another one where it appears Warrior has ''sexually violated'' Santa.
-->'''[[WebVideo/TheAngryJoeShow Angry Joe]]''': Nobody rapes Santa on our watch! Let's get him!
* NightmareFuel: The Christmas Special.
* SoBadItsGood: No one, aside from Warrior himself perhaps, would ever declare these books good. However, it is ''a lot'' of fun watching a CausticCritic try to decode them.

!!''Film:''
* CrowningMusicOFAwesome: TheNational bookends the movie. The version of "About Today"' at the end of the film is nothing short of brilliant.
* ClicheStorm: According to Rotten Tomotoes: "''Warrior'' relies on many of the clichés that critics of the genre love to mock -- [[TropesAreNotBad and it transcends them with gripping action, powerful acting, and heart]]."
* HilariousInHindsight: Wrestling/KurtAngle is well known for his {{Eagleland}} Type 2 gimmick in the Wrestling/{{WWE}}. [[FakeRussian He plays a Russian in the film.]]
* HoYay: Brendan and Frank which was lampshaded by ''the former's wife'', Tess.
--->'''Tess:''' (Giving the phone to her husband after speaking to Frank) It's your boyfriend.
* TheWoobie: All three of the main characters. Where to begin?
** Brendan resents his father for treating him like TheUnfavorite because he wasn't as talented at fighting as Tommy.
** Paddy himself later becomes TheWoobie. Tommy, his long-lost son, appears but wants nothing to do with him other than training to fight in the tournament. His other son, Brendan, resents him for treating him like TheUnfavourite and will not let Paddy see his grandchildren. When Paddy drives to Brendan's house, Brendan gets upset at his coming, telling him that he's restricted to phone calls and mail, and then slams the door shut when Paddy tries to see his family. Tommy later fights with Paddy and induces him to relapse into alcoholism, leading to his panicky hotel scene.
** JerkassWoobie: Tommy was favored by his abusive, alcoholic father only because of his fighting talent. When he and his mother escaped the household, his brother didn't go with him, which he views as abandonment. His mother later dies, with only Tommy there to help her through her illness, and receives no support afterwards. He joins the Marines and is with his best friend until said best friend dies in a friendly fire attack. He joins the tournament to support the widow of his best friend, only to be alone in the ring in the fight against his brother, whereas Brendan has his wife and trainer with him. All this is with the knowledge that he will be forced into military court once the fight is over. However, [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming he eventually reconciles with his brother]] [[TearJerker and cries in his arms at the end of the fight]].
