East Coney Island, Brooklyn (Formerly)
Denim Vest (Lieutenants Have Denim Hats)
They were once the most powerful gang in Coney Island but lost control and possibly disbanded or disappeared (though they are less likely to be disbanded) on-screen after their leader, Virgil, an addicted alcoholic, attempted to get Cleon, his Warchief, killed in a set-up drug deal with The Satan's Mothers. After surviving the assault, Cleon then rebelled and established his own gang, The Warriors, made up of several former Destroyers. Virgil was eventually killed and his gang destroyed in retaliation for the murder of Ash, one of the Warrior's New Bloods. Their members wore sleevless denim jackets with the Destroyers logo embroided on the back. Their hangout was a large warehouse in Eastern Coney Island, with a mural of Virgil painted on the side.

Once they get to the Hangout Virgil tells Cleon to go to LC to get the drugs from L.C for The Satan's Mothers gang, he also says that he'll be there at midnight. They get to LC's, but L.C doesn't wanna give them the drugs just yet because there are cops all over the place. They got rid of them and went straight back to LC's and got the drugs, LC stays. After giving fake drugs to The Satan's Mothers, Virgil doesn't show and Cleon and Vermin end up battling the leaders of The Satan's Mothers. After wrecking the Satan's Mothers leaders, Cleon and Vermin head back to East Coney. Upon arrival, Cleon accuses Virgil of setting them up. Virgil claims that Cleon started to plot against him so he had to get rid of them. Cleon and Vermin then leave the Destroyers but not without Cleon declaring war on Virgil.
