Andrew Todd hat sich das Script zu Walter Hills Action-Klassiker „The Warriors“ durchgelesen und festgestellt, dass es neben den 21 im Film genannten und gezeigten Gangs noch 64 weitere Banden genannt werden. Und für die hat er sich jetzt mehr oder weniger passende Storys und Hintergründe ausgedacht. Nice! Warriors FTW!
The original script actually features many more gangs, either involved in the story or listed at the film’s inciting meeting. These gangs either got cut before the shoot or were never intended to actually be seen, but their names invoke strange imagery in much the same way that the film’s colourful characters do.
- The Amsterdam All-Stars: Dutch immigrants who came to America for the basketball culture, they wear exclusively Converse-branded clothing and settle rivalries with one-on-one basketball duels.
- The Black Hands: Descendants of the various organisations that conspired in the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austro-Hungary. They’re still angry that the United States took so long to join the First World War, and take out their frustrations upon New York’s residents.
- The Blackjacks: Wielding heavy koshes and wearing outdated law enforcement uniforms, the Blackjacks are former cops who have taken the problem of gang violence into their own hands, becoming a gang themselves in the process.
- The Big Trains: Made up primarily of wedding planners and dressmakers, the Big Trains wear extravagant wedding gowns with lengthy cathedral trains, stained with the blood and muck of hundreds of street fights.
- The Charlemagnes: The most ambitious gang in New York, the Charlemagnes seek to reform the Holy Roman Empire, starting with the streets of the Big Apple.
- The Colt 45s: Not only do the 45s wield the classic Colt six-shooters, they also maintain a herd of young horses that they sell to racing titans once they come of age, keeping their number of owned horses at 45 at all times.
- The Dealers: Known for their razor-lined visors and almost religious devotion to fairness, the Dealers are frequently engaged as arbiters of disputes between other gangs.
- The Delaney Rovers: An Irish gang so inspired by the United States’ moon landing that they built their own replica space suits and drive around in golf carts modded to look like the Lunar Rover.
- The E Street Shufflers: A group of Bruce Springsteen impersonators who use weaponised guitars in gang brawls.
