The Rogues were prominent enough to be invited by Cyrus and the Riffs to the conclave held in Van Cortlandt Park, the Bronx. Luther disregarded the conditions set by Cyrus and brought a handgun to the meeting, which he used to kill Cyrus at the conclave. However, Luther and the Rogues accused The Warriors for Cyrus' murder, which led to the death of The Warriors' Warlord Cleon. In the hours following the meeting, a search for The Warriors was carried out by the gangs of New York, who were seeking retribution for Cyrus' death. The Rogues followed the progress of The Warriors, as they attempted to return to their territory in Coney Island. When The Warriors were able to return to their turf, Luther and the Rogues met them on Coney beach. Luther drew his handgun and prepared to shoot The Warriors, but the gang's new Warlord Swan was quick to dodge and throw a knife into Luther's wrist, disabling him. The new leader of the Riffs Masai then appeared with the Riffs, now aware that the Rogues were behind Cyrus' death. Masai allowed The Warriors safe passage past the Riffs, before the Riffs advanced on the Rogues amidst Luther's screams.
The Rogues were founded sometime before April 30, 1979, and adopted Hell's Kitchen in Manhattan as their territory. The Rogues' leader was Luther, and the gang could sometimes be seen travelling in an old hearse.
 Riverside blackout
See also: Blackout
On April 30, 1979, a blackout occurred in Riverside, and a riot subsequently broke out, which the Rogues were a part of. During the blackout, Luther, Tommy and Patches strayed into the Park, were they were confronted by the Baseball Furies. Luther was able to escape from the Furies, although Tommy and Patches were wasted by the Furies. When Luther later returned to the rest of the gang and his second-in-command Cropsey asked him where Tommy and Patches where, Luther told him not to worry about them because they were "wimps".
 Gang curfew in Pelham
See also: Boys In Blue
On June 30, Luther and the Rogues killed a cop in Pelham, which led to a gang curfew coming into effect. However, after killing the cop and disposing of the body, the Rogues left Pelham, which meant that they avoided the curfew.
 The meeting and tracking The Warriors to Coney Island
When Cyrus and the Gramercy Riffs called a conclave of New York City's street gangs in Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx, the Rogues were one of the gangs invited to the meeting. At the conclave, Cyrus spoke of the possibilities if all of the gangs in attendance unified as one gang. However, as Cyrus gave his speech, he was shot and killed by Luther; moments later, a large group of cops interrupted the meeting, and in the chaos the Rogues blamed The Warriors for Cyrus' murder, which led to the death of The Warriors' Warlord Cleon at the hands of the Riffs.
After Masai, the new leader of the Riffs, sent out a request that the remaining members of The Warriors be caught by the gangs of New York, the Rogues tracked The Warriors as they attempted to return to their territory Coney Island. The Warriors were able to defeat gangs such as the Orphans, Baseball Furies and Punks and return to Coney, where the Rogues confronted them. In their hearse, the Rogues chased The Warriors to beneath a boardwalk near Coney beach. Luther then taunted The Warriors, and followed them to Coney beach, where Luther faced The Warriors' new Warlord Swan. Swan challenged Luther to a one-on-one battle, but Luther declined and instead attempted to shoot Swan. However, Swan was quick to dodge and threw a knife into Luther's arm, disabling him. Masai and the Riffs then appeared, now aware that it was the Rogues who had killed Cyrus; Masai allowed The Warriors safe passage past the Riffs, before he and the Riffs advanced on the Rogues amidst Luther's screams.
