* SignatureScene: Tommy easily beating Mad Dog unconscious in the gym is arguably the most well-known scene of the film, and is still quite popular on social media years later.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: In both of Mad Dog's appearances he is quickly shown as all bark and no bite, as he is curb stomped by Tommy within a few seconds or a few minutes. Mad Dog could have been a tough challenger fuelled by revenge or he could have given Tommy a run for his money but Mad Dog is defeated without laying a punch on Tommy or even trying to force Tommy into a submission.

* 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]]."

** 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]].

** The "Believe this" guy appears again in issue #4 (the one in black and white), when Warrior looks in a mirror in the real world. He's implied to be possessing Warrior's body (picking fights with everyone, killing world leaders, etc.) while Warrior's spirit is in the Terrain of Testament.
