The Row ain't safe no more, son. We got gangs fightin' over shit that ain't theirs, and you in they way. They don't care if you representin' or not.

OverviewEdit

You okay, playa?

"The Streets of Stilwater" is the opening cutscene in Saints Row, shown upon completion of the creation of The Protagonist. As the first cutscene in the game, it introduces the player to their playable character; The Protagonist, as well as Julius Little, Troy, and the four gangs vying for control of the city of Stilwater: the Vice Kings, the Westside Rollerz, the Carnales, and the 3rd Street Saints.

DetailsEdit

The Protagonist is walking down a street in the Saint's Row District[1] at night and, after ignoring a jewellery merchant selling watches, he is stopped by a prostitute offering her services.

Around the corner, Levar, accompanied by 2 unnamed Vice King gang members, decide to tag over Westside Rollerz graffiti, but the three are abruptly stopped by three Rollerz gang members in the area. The Rollerz start the fight by hitting one of the Vice Kings with a baseball bat and a fistfight ensues. After exchanging blows, one of the Rollerz flees past The Protagonist, with Levar throwing his spray can after him.

Three Los Carnales gang members arrive in a Hollywood and open fire on both the Rollerz and Vice Kings. The Vice Kings and remaining Rollerz draw their weapons and a gun battle ensues during which one Carnales is killed and along with two of the Vice Kings and all the Rollerz. After Levar is gunned down, the Roller who escaped earlier returns with a K6 Krukov and starts firing at the Carnales, as The Protagonist runs across the road. The Carnale driver is killed, and his foot hits the pedal, causing the car to speed off wildly.

The Protagonist, now on the other side of the road, narrowly avoids being hit by the car by jumping out of the way, and is apparently injured and does not get back up. The Roller with the assault rifle executes the surviving Carnales, and is in turn shot in the head by the surviving Vice King, who approaches The Protagonist. Stating "Wrong time, wrong place, dawg", he raises a GDHC .50 at him, aiming to dispose of any witnesses, but as he is about to pull the trigger, the screen cuts to black, and a gunshot is heard.

It turns out that the shot is fired by Troy, a member of the 3rd Street Saints. Along with Julius Little, the leader of the 3rd Street Saints, they help The Protagonist up and across the road to safety, during which the Carnales' car explodes.

After crossing the road to a third corner, Julius invites The Protagonist to join his gang.

The Row's got a problem. Come to the church when you wanna be a part of the solution.

After the cutscene, the player is given control of The Protagonist for the first time, and has the option to begin the first mission of the game; "Canonized".

LocationEdit

The cutscene takes place on a stretch of road in Harrowgate, between Rim Jobs and the Stilwater Police Precinct 4 building.[2] Visible landmarks in the cutscene are a 1 Hour Photo building[3], Chuk Nuik's Books[4], Bob's Liquor[5], Pizzeria Bolle[6], and several distinctive houses. The graffiti itself does not appear outside the cutscene.[7]

The 4 locations in the cutscene are around the same intersection.

  • The location of the watch seller is the south side of the 1 Hour Photo building in the north west corner.
  • The location of the graffiti is the east side of the 1 Hour Photo building in the north west corner.
  • The location where Troy saves The Protagonist is on the north side of the building in the south west corner.
  • The location where Julius and Troy take The Protagonist is on the west side of the building in the south east corner.

In the scene Levar where throws the can of spray paint, he turns the corner of the 1 Hour Photo building, with the graffiti location visible behind him to the north[8], and the watch seller ahead of him to the west[9], demonstrating that it is impossible to see the graffiti location from where The Protagonist is standing. The re-creation of this scene in Saints Row IV[10] does not faithfully recreate the scene, and has the Vice Kings down the same street as The Protagonist.

NewscastEdit

Main article: Newscasts
SR1 News Shared 0040 Gang Violence
Jack Armstrong: "I'm Jack Armstrong in the newsroom with this special report on gang activity in Stilwater. Once again, violence has erupted and has broken the stillness of the morning, as overnight in the Saint's Row area, all three warring factions of the main gang-related organizations have again traded gunfire and death. Known as Los Carnales, the Westside Rollerz with a 'z', and Vice Kings, these ruthless thugs think nothing of stealing what they want, engaging in prostitution, drug distribution, insurance fraud, loan sharking, and more, giving the Stilwater Police Department fits. And to enforce their territories, these marauders engage in firing weapons at anyone within striking distance, using explosive devices and military-grade material to manage the population of their competitors with deadly force - all while placing the law-abiding citizens of Stilwater squarely in the crossfire. When gang violence happens, and it will, tune to us for the latest details and information. For Jane Valderamma, Flying Officer Mike McCabe, and all of us in the newsroom, I'm Jack Armstrong."

TriviaEdit

  • The prostitute's appearance is randomly generated each time the cutscene is played, either by restarting the game, or using a Theater.
  • "Buenas noches" is Spanish for "good night".
  • A Vice Kings member, Levar, sprays a Westside Rollerz member in the face using a spray can used for tagging. This is not possible to do in the game itself.
  • The Westside Rollerz gang member wielding the K6 Krukov has an Ultor logo on the brim of his hat.[11]
  • It is unknown how exactly The Protagonist gets wounded in the cutscene. He limps, using Julius for support, as they escape, so it is possible he sprained his ankle as he dived out of the way of the Carnales' Hollywood, or the car grazed The Protagonist's leg.
  • When the game is saved before beginning the first mission, Canonized, the save file reads "Meeting the Saints", along with "0%" game completion. Usually, after saving a game in Saints Row at any other time, the save file reads the last completed mission.[12]
  • The Hollywood Los Carnales are driving has blue underglow, a feature that is not available in Vehicle Customization until Saints Row: The Third.
