->"[[CatchPhrase You forget a thousand things every day.]] [[LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain Make sure this is one of them.]]"

->'''Voiced by:''' Ned Luke

A middle-aged ex-robber currently retired and under the [[{{FBI}} FIB's]] WitnessProtection, living in a posh mansion in Rockford Hills (the game's equivalent of Beverly Hills) with his dysfunctional family -- disrespectful daughter Tracy, lazy son Jimmy, and spendthrift wife Amanda, whose habits force him to return to a life of crime. Or at least, that's what he says; in truth, Michael is bored and frustrated by his domestic life, his only outlets being [[TheAlcoholic whiskey]], watching old Vinewood action movies, and trips to his therapist. He serves as the "brains" and leader of the gang, and is described as a "smooth operator".

This page has been split, please add tropes to characters in the [[{{FBI}} FIB's]] WitnessProtection, living in a posh mansion in Rockford Hills (the game's equivalent of Beverly Hills) with his dysfunctional family -- disrespectful daughter Tracy, lazy son Jimmy, and spendthrift wife Amanda, whose habits force him to return to a life of crime. Or at least, that's what he says; in truth, Michael is bored and frustrated by his domestic life, his only outlets being [[TheAlcoholic whiskey]], watching old Vinewood action movies, and trips to his therapist. He serves as the "brains" and leader of the gang, and is described as a "smooth operator".following pages:



* TheAlcoholic: Out of boredom and his depressing family life.
* AwfulWeddedLife: To Amanda, with whom he trades curses and screams.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassInANiceSuit: Due to his more affluent lifestyle compared to the other protagonists.
** RetiredBadass: Initially.
* BecauseImGoodAtIt: Subverted. He claims to come out of retirement because he doesn't have any talents except bank robbery but really he's only making excuses to jump back into the game so he doesn't have to put up with his fractured and mundane domestic life.
* BerserkButton: He doesn't really mind Amanda's cheating -- in fact, he also cheats on her quite frequently, and both are pretty honest about the fact that their marriage had ran its course. What ''does'' rile him up, however, is the fact that she had to cheat on him in ''their'' house, on ''their'' bed, with a guy ''he is paying to spend time with her''.
-->"If I have to use a motel, she has to use a motel!"
* BulletTime: His special ability, ''VideoGame/MaxPayne'' style.
* CatchPhrase: Turns out it isn't a great idea for a career criminal to have a signature catchphrase, but Michael can't resist, seen above.
* ChronicVillainy: He is bored by civilian life and cannot come to terms with it, and therefore uses Amanda's spendthrift lifestyle as an excuse for him to return to a life of crime.
* ClimbingClimax: The "Kill [[spoiler:Mike]]" ending concludes with Franklin pursuing Mike up an industrial catwalk, trading gunfire and accusations. Mike eventually [[spoiler:topples over the edge and dies]].
* {{Cuckold}}: His wife constantly cheats on him with any man she can. Though Michael is just as bad with his girlfriends, there's not much drama or conflict about that.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DisproportionateRetribution: He catches Amanda's tennis instructor in bed with her. So he chases him down and tears down his house. [[FromBadToWorse Except it wasn't his house]].
* {{Expy}}: To Neil [=McCauley=] of ''Film/{{Heat}}'' as well as his actor, RobertDeNiro.
** And much like Franklin, some might say he's one for [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCity Tommy Vercetti]]. Appropriately enough, given his close resemblance to Tommy's voice actor, Ray Liotta.
** His bio reads a lot like [[TV/TheSopranos Tony Soprano's]].
* FakingTheDead: Apparently killed by the cops during a past operation with Trevor in North Yankton, Canada. In fact, he was put into Witness Protection by the government and sent off to live in Los Santos, where he and his family had to change their surname from "Townley" to "de Santa".
* [[spoiler:FatalFamilyPhoto]]: The "Kill [[spoiler:Mike]]" ending hammers this home with a phone call from Amanda: Their daughter got accepted into college. Mike is elated at the prospect of reuniting his family. Franklin, who is preparing to [[spoiler:dispose of Mike]], keeps his game face on but has trouble hiding his guilt.
* GoodIsBoring: Although the initial cause of his troubles is due to a mistake with a cartel, he really does want to return to a life of crime. May cross over with BeingGoodSucks seeing how his family life has gone down the tubes during his "retirement".
* InHarmsWay: Dr. Friedlander diagnoses him with an outright addiction to chaos.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: If the player chooses Option B.]]
* TheMentor: To Franklin.
* MisBlamed: [[invoked]] Amanda blames their failing marriage on his criminal activities; however, it was falling apart long before he got back into the game.
* TheMovieBuff: Up to the point of basing an armored car robbery [[SawItInAMovieOnce off a scene he saw in a movie]].
* OneManArmy: His special ability is bullet time similar to ''Max Payne''.
* OhCrap: His reaction when he realized that he ended up offending Martin Madrazo and his cartel (and saddled with a $2.5 million debt) by destroying one of their houses, where the tennis instructor whom Amanda cheated on him with hid, and later when Trevor tracks him down on his house.
* PapaWolf: He might not be on good terms with his children, but the ''moment'' he finds they're in danger, or potential danger, he leaps into action.
* ParentalNeglect: He has a hard time understanding his kids, and therefore he often leaves them to their own devices.
* RetiredOutlaw: Again, initially.
* SawItInAMovieOnce: A small heist mission entitled "Blitz Play", which is based off of ''{{Film/Heat}}'', has him saying he got the idea for it from a movie.
* SharpDressedMan: In contrast to the more casual Franklin and the extremely casual Trevor.
* SmokingIsCool: When switching to Michael, he can often be seen smoking a cigarette before the player takes control.
* TheStoolPigeon: His situation in exchange for the FIB's protection.
* TakeMyHand: During their last standoff in the "Kill [[spoiler:Mike]] ending, Mike's scuffle with Franklin sends him toppling over the rail. Franklin appears to relent and tries pulling Mike up from the scaffold. [[spoiler:He still plummets to his death]].
* VictoryIsBoring: Rockstar describes him as a GTA protagonist a few years after "winning" the game.
* VillainProtagonist: He is a career criminal after all.
* YourCheatingHeart: Is cheating on his wife.
* WhyAreYouNotMySon: Feels this way toward Franklin.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: Used to work together with Trevor before his apparent death, only to be reunited after pulling a heist that gets TV coverage.
* WitnessProtection: Currently under the FIB's aegis in exchange for his cooperation.

[[folder:Trevor Phillips]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Trevor_tvtropes_9447.jpg
->"[[AnEntrepreneurIsYou The guns and crank in this area [Blaine County] go through Trevor Phillips Enterprise]], or they ain't going!"

->'''Voiced by:''' Steven Ogg

A former airman, career criminal, and Michael's old best friend and partner in crime, now a sociopathic drug addict living in a trailer park full of meth heads and biker gangs by the Alamo Sea (based on the real-life Salton Sea) in Blaine County.
----
* AcePilot: The team's designated pilot.
* AnythingThatMoves: Not only does he frequently make sexual passes at people (regardless of gender), but he even carves holes into Floyd's teddy bear so he can have sex with it. [[spoiler:Sometimes, should the player jump to Trevor, he can be seen getting out of bed with Floyd, who is curled into a fetal position and crying.]]
** If he gets a double dance at the Vanilla Unicorn, he'll comment "If only we had another guy join us. That would be a real party."
* AxCrazy: Even when ''not'' under the player's control, he can still be seen roaming around and killing people, such as the Los Santos chapter of The Lost MC.
* {{Badass}}: Dude takes out two chapters of The Lost ''by himself''.
* [[BaldOfEvil Balding of Evil]]: Most of his hairstyles don't cover that bald spot.
* TheBerserker: It's hard to imagine Trevor ''not'' being a combat maniac.
* BerserkButton:
** Whenever someone threatens his company or crew, the results are truly horrifying.
** Don't threaten Michael's family either.
** He ''seriously'' hates being called a hipster.
*** And if there's one thing he hates more than that, it's being called a motherfucker. All of the rampage missions start with someone making that mistake.
** Actually, he pretty much has a HairTriggerTemper, meaning there are probably too many {{Berserk Button}}s to count.
* BloodKnight: He loves violence and chaos. [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential Does he remind you of someone?]]
* TheBrute: Picking a fight with Trevor is going to result in someone having a ''very'' bad day. [[spoiler:Unless you're Michael or Franklin]].
* BunnyEarsLawyer: If the fact that he isn't utterly batshit insane hasn't been established yet, here's another reminder. That said, he's still an extremely efficient thief, surprisingly insightful, and despite their obvious issues, a loyal friend to Michael.
* CanadaEh: He is actually Canadian. Then again, according to himself, he grew up so close to the border that he might have actually been born in the US.
-->"'ABOOT'?! I DON'T EVEN SOUND THAT CANADIAN!"
** Merges a bit with InkSuitActor, since Steven Ogg himself is Canadian.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Aside from his AxCrazy behavior, he's just plain weird.
* ColdBloodedTorture: Seen inflicting it with electrodes in his trailer.
** Hilariously, and horrifyingly, he fully admits that the TortureAlwaysWorks trope is a crock of shit; he believes it's useless as a means of gathering information. [[ForTheEvulz But it's a damn good way to keep yourself entertained for an afternoon.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: When not being psychotically violent, he's got a surprisingly dry and acerbic wit.
* DeathSeeker: Implied. He has a tattoo of a dotted line on his neck with the words "Cut Here."
* DepravedBisexual: It's pretty clear that Trevor just ''doesn't care'' who he screws. Woman, man, teddy bear, he'll do it.
* DespairEventHorizon: Michael's ([[FakingTheDead faked]]) death seems to have been this for him, as evidenced by his attitude and "RIP Michael" tattoo.
* TheDreaded: Michael is, at least initially, terrified of him and the chaos he may/will cause. Michael (rather accurately) describes him to Franklin as "Hell walking on Earth."
* DirtyOldMan: Age has certainly not dulled his libido.
* EqualOpportunityEvil[=/=]HatesEveryoneEqually: For an AxCrazy, drug-addicted, murderous psychopath who operates in racist redneck towns, he's remarkably fair-minded, until he decides to murder you in a horrible way.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Trevor loves his mother enough to steal a van full of delutoral for her just because she asks him to... She also refused to let him back into his trailer until then. Either way, it can't be argued that he dotes on her... [[spoiler: Which makes it all the more sad when, after he brings the van back to the trailer, he runs in and calls out for her while he searches all of the rooms. When it's clear that she's nowhere in the house, he falls to the ground screaming with his hands on his head.]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Believe it or not, he does. The most noticeable example is bigotry, as he is EqualOpportunityEvil.
* {{Expy}}: He bears a few similarities to [[KaneAndLynch James Lynch]].
** [[PrisonBreak Theodore Bagwell]], anyone?
** He would get along with [[{{Film/Red}} Marvin Boggs]] just fine.
* FreudianExcuse: Seems to have turned to drugs and become addicted to them (thereby developing his AxCrazy behavior) due to his hard childhood. In one of the trailers this exchange occurs:
-->'''Michael:''' "What is wrong with you?"\\
'''Trevor:''' "Abandonment issues. I see a shrink once a week."
** Then again, [[DissonantSerenity the cheerful way he quips it]] implies he's being a DeadpanSnarker, (complete with a dig at Michael needing a psychologist) ...or [[StepfordSmiler even crazier than usual]].
** He also remarks that his father "wasn't very nice to him."
** Dialogue from his MushroomSamba implies that [[spoiler:he was molested by a clown when he was a child.]]
* FriendshipMoment: In the intro, he refuses to leave the injured Michael behind to the mercy of the police, despite being heavily outnumbered. Michael has to repeatedly beg him to run and save himself before Trevor finally agrees to do it.
* GeniusBruiser: Don't let his looks fool you -- the most dangerous thing about Trevor isn't his military training or psychosis: it's his intellect and charisma, a fact that becomes evident within the first twenty minutes of playing as him.
** One notable example occurs when he accompanies Franklin and Lamar to buy bricks of cocaine. Even though Lamar tries a sample from one end of a brick, Trevor is savvy enough to ask for a sample from the opposite end and becomes suspicious when the seller refuses. Unsurprisingly, what was supposed to be a kilogram of coke turns out to be closer to an ounce.
* GoodScarsEvilScars
* HairTriggerTemper: The triggers themselves are often hilarious.
* HonoraryUncle: To Michael's kids. They seem to actually like him and in turn he's quite protective of them.
* HotBlooded: The most energetic of the trio.
* ItAmusedMe: Pretty much his MO.
* {{Jerkass}}
* [[spoiler:KarmicDeath]] / ManOnFire: In the "Kill [[spoiler:Trevor]] ending, he [[spoiler:crashes his truck into a gasoline tanker]], which is ignited by Franklin's pistol. Mike bitterly comments on this being [[spoiler:a fitting end]].
* KickTheDog: When he viciously kills [[spoiler:Johnny Klebitz, and the rest of the Lost MC]].
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: If the player chooses Option A.]]
* LaughablyEvil: Has his moments. Where else can you see a man butchering people one day, then found lying on the beach half-naked and stoned out of his wits the next?
* LikesOlderWomen: Patricia, who's ''57.''
* LimitBreak: His special ability activates a "Frenzy" mode, where he deals double damage and receives half as much.
* MoralityPet: Patricia Madrazo, wife of ruthless Cartel boss Martin Madrazo. Despite his original intent to kidnap her and use her as leverage because Martin refused to pay him, ''the two genuinely ended up bonding.'' [[spoiler:Given how abusive Martin is with her, she likely loves him.]]
* OneManArmy: His frenzy mode is a reflection of this.
** He also is the character who gets the traditional rampages.
** Most gangs in the franchise follow a typical structure of a boss leading a handful of captains, who in turn lead dozens of soldiers. Trevor Philips Enterprises only has one soldier: Trevor.
* OddFriendship: With Lamar. They are genuinely fond of each other.
* ThePigPen: Personal hygiene is not high on his list of priorities. His most frequent outfit is a filthy white v-neck t-shirt, an equally grubby pair of either gray sweatpants or jeans, and a pair of well-worn hiking boots.
* PetTheDog: Despite his insanity and immorality, he seems to genuinely care for Michael's children, or at least Tracey. He is infuriated when he learns that a television show plans to embarrass her in front of the nation, and she even seems happy to see him! [[spoiler:He even drives off Mr. K -- the guy he ''viciously'' tortured minutes earlier on Steve's orders -- to the airport, instead of killing him as Steve wanted, urging him to leave Los Santos for good.]]
* {{Sadist}}
* TheSociopath: And loving it.
* TeachHimAnger: A lot of the time he antagonizes Michael and Franklin simply to get them to show some backbone. This is ''only'' the case with Mike and Frank, however. Anyone else who stands up to him will be beaten down. [[spoiler: Poor Floyd and Rebecca.]]
* TokenEvilTeammate: While Michael and Franklin seem more like {{Anti Villain}}s, Trevor is an unrepentant psycho.
* UnflinchingWalk: Does this away from an exploding house.
* VillainProtagonist: As if it wasn't obvious enough.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: To Michael, whom he thought was dead for 9 years, at least until they reunite at the start of the game.
* YouBastard: WordOfGod confirms that Trevor is, essentially, the [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential average]] ''Grand Theft Auto'' player ''incarnate'', with all the unpleasant characteristics that would come with such a person in real life.
** Likely invoked in ''[[EstablishingCharacterMoment the very first instance we see him]]'', where he's revealed to have [[spoiler: [[TheCorrupter turned Johnny Klebitz into a strung out meth-head]], [[YourCheatingHeart was screwing Ashley senseless when Johnny wasn't looking]], [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown stomped Johnny's head to paste]] when [[WhatTheHellHero he dared to call Trevor out]], and then uses his death as an excuse [[OmnicidalManiac to wipe out the rest of the Lost MC]].]]

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Franklin_tvtropes_7416.jpg
->"I got respect for [[RealityEnsues reality]]."

->'''Voiced by:''' Shawn "OG Solo" Fonteno

An ex-gang banger from South Los Santos who yearns to leave the lifestyle he deems destructive -- by working as a repo man for Premium Deluxe Motorsport in Vespucci Beach (the equivalent of Venice Beach).
----
* AffablyEvil: He's a pretty likable guy as long as you aren't an idiot, {{Jerkass}}, enemy, or a combination of the three.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassDriver: Has the best driving skill of the three protagonists, and has a special ability for cars.
** BadassBiker: Frequently seen riding a dirtbike.
* BlackBestFriend: To Michael.
* BulletTime: His special ability allows him to activate this ability in cars, similar to ''VideoGame/NeedForSpeed''[='=]s Speedbreaker.
* CatchPhrase: The word "What?!", mostly {{FlatWhat}}s.
* CoolPet[=/=]RightHandAttackDog: Chop. Technically, he's Lamar's dog, but Franklin often borrows him for repo jobs in case the vehicles' owners are uncooperative.
* DeadpanSnarker: Especially when it comes Lamar's {{Get Rich Quick Scheme}}s, Jimmy's PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy attitude, and his aunt's outlandish attempts to get in touch with her femininity.
* DoggedNiceGuy: Although Franklin's possibly not ''that'' much of a nice guy, this is his relationship with Tenisha.
* {{Expy}}: A black gang banger whose friends give him crap for leaving the gang for supposedly selfish reasons? Are we talking about Franklin or [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas Carl Johnson]]?
* GangBanger: He is trying to escape this life, viewing it as self-destructive.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* TheLancer: To Michael.
* LikeASonToMe: Michael calls him "the son I always wanted."
* NewMeat: When compared to Michael and Trevor.
* NWordPrivileges
* OneManArmy
* OnlySaneMan[=/=]OnlySaneEmployee: Is stated to be the more realistic and normal of the three.
-->''"You can't repo the assets of a dead man, 'big sitting chief asshole'!"''
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Lamar's red.
* TheReliableOne: Michael takes Franklin [[TheMentor under his wing]] when Franklin helps him to save his son.
* TheStoner: He's a habitual pot smoker.
* SurroundedByIdiots: How he feels being surrounded by people who don't seem to realize the futility of holding onto their lifestyle.
* SpeaksFluentAnimal: Can perfectly understand what dogs are saying. It even weirds ''him'' out.
* VillainProtagonist
* VitriolicBestBuds: Seems to have this relationship with Lamar.
* WideEyedIdealist: Sincerely believes that he (and his homies) can leave behind the life of drug trafficking, gang wars and foul run-ins with the law. The rest of his gang chew him out for this, claiming he has gone "soft".

!!Michael's Family and Associates

[[folder:Amanda [=Townley/de Santa=]]]

->"Stop it, you two [Michael and Jimmy], you're ruining my fucking yoga!"

->'''Voiced by:''' Vicki Van Tassel

Michael's wife. After being uprooted due to the FIB's WitnessProtection, she's developed a strained relationship with her husband, preferring to spend time shopping with his bank account. Her constant burning through Michael's funds forces him to return to his life of crime.
----
* AwfulWeddedLife: To Michael, with whom she trades curses and screams. [[spoiler: She eventually goes with Michael to get therapy, and after a jarring argument that takes up thier session, she simply asks that he doesn't get himself killed.]]
* GoldDigger: According to Trevor, Mike met Amanda when she was a stripper and their relationship was started on the basis of him buying her breast implants so she could make more money.
* GrudgingThankYou: [[spoiler:After an optional mission where Michael helps her escape the police]].
* Hypocrite: Not two minutes after she and the children listed off the various guys she's cheated on Michael with, [[spoiler: she demands that Michael stop his own cheating if he wants her to come back, criticizing him for his behavior while never once apologizing for her own, or explicitly saying she intends to stop.]]
** There's also the matter of [[spoiler: The side mission where you have to save her from getting arrested after shoplifting.]]
* MamaBear: [[spoiler:When Fabien disrespects Jimmy, she tells Michael to "Just hit him already".]]
* ModestyTowel: Is seen in one when Michael finds her banging the tennis instructor.
* RichBitch
* WitnessProtection
* YourCheatingHeart: Is caught cheating on Michael with her tennis instructor.
** It's also strongly suggested that she's sleeping with the yoga instructor, and she seems to have an account on the cheating website hushmush, under the screen name foxymama21.

[[folder:James "Jimmy" [=Townley/de Santa=]]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Jimmy_tvtropes_7393.jpg
->"Alright, [[TotallyRadical let's bounce]]."

->'''Voiced by:''' Danny Tamberelli

Michael and Amanda's lazy, whiny, 20-year-old stoner son.
----
* BasementDweller: He doesn't live in a basement, but he otherwise fits all the rest of this trope's definition, leeching off of his parents, living in their house on their dime, and refusing to grow up.
* CallingTheOldManOut: Is brave (or stupid) enough to call his retired gangster father an asshole right to his face. In fact, the ''first'' thing he does after being rescued from Michael's stolen yacht is the mention the dysfunction of their family.
* ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike: Mind you, he doesn't do it ''during'' the actual rescue, but after Mike and Frank save him from the guys stealing the Yacht, he does nothing but complain about how psychotic Mike is for engaging in that kind of behavior, killing those guys, instead of calling the cops.
* DumbassTeenageSon: Though no longer teenaged, he still fits the mold.
* EntitledBastard: The tattoo on his neck saying "Entitled" is a dead giveaway.
* FatBastard: He gets better.
* FlippingTheBird: To Tracy in [[http://backend.meristation.com/files/imagenes/juegos/360/action/sandbox/grand_theft_auto_v/jimmy_and_tracey_19_rgb.jpg this picture.]]
* {{GIFT}}: When playing online shooter games against other players, his mouth spews forth homophobic slurs like a faucet.
* {{Hypocrite}}: He criticizes[[note]]That word does not begin to convey the amount of shit he gives his father[[/note]] Michael for the same behavior that he admires Franklin and Trevor for committing.
* LazyBum: As Michael says while talking to his shrink, all Jimmy does is sit in his room all day smoking pot, masturbate, and play video games. Although Michael does get him out of the house from time to time.
* NWordPrivileges: He doesn't have them, but he still refers to himself as "nigga" when playing video games.
* PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy: He speaks in hip-hop slang that he heard on the radio, and wears a Fruntalot shirt (a parody of urban wear brands like Fubu). His father mocks him for it in one scene.
-->'''Jimmy:''' Let's bounce.\\
'''Michael:''' "[[LampshadeHanging 'Bounce'?]] [[IsThatWhatTheyreCallingItNow We're 'bouncing' now?]]"
** Franklin also comments on it (that and his liberal use of the word "nigga"), considering it more amusing than offensive, though he also politely warns him against acting like that to other black people unless he really wants to get his ass kicked.
* SelfDeprecation: He is, if anything, quite aware how screwed up his social situation and his family is.
* TheStoner
* TattooedCrook: Though he's not much of one.
* TotallyRadical: InUniverse. He likes to pretend to be gangsta by repeating the hip-hop slang he hears on the radio.
* UngratefulBastard
* WellDoneSonGuy: He admits that his less than stellar attempts to act cool is mainly motivated by a wish to impress his dad.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tracey [=Townley/de Santa=]]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/FotoFlexer_Photo78_2373.jpg
->"Dad! He said I have a massive [gaper]... Jimmy called me a '''bitch'''!"

->'''Voiced by:''' Michal Sinnott

Michael and Amanda's whiny teenage daughter.
----
* AlliterativeName
* AlphaBitch
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: To Jimmy.
* BareYourMidriff: Justified, since the game takes place in a pastiche of Southern California.
* BrattyTeenageDaughter: [[spoiler: Lighten's up in ''Reuniting the Family''.]]
* ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike: A little more justified in her case as, unlike Jimmy, she wasn't in immediately life threatening situations when her father, and later her father and HonoraryUncle step in.
* DumbBlonde
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: To Michael's shame. If he sees her drunk on the staircase inside their house, he wonders if she's really his daughter.
* HopelessAuditionees: One mission involves preventing her from being featured as one of these on an AmericasGotTalent style show.
** TakeOurWordForIt is averted, folks... it's not so much that she's a BAD dancer, as her dancing is best suited for a strip club.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: She screams at Michael for being a psychopath, meanwhile she absolutely loves Trevor.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Shows this later on when [[spoiler:Amanda leaves Michael. Tracey sent him heartwarming emails saying that while she still thinks he's a dick, she really misses him]].
* MoralityPet: To Trevor.
* MsFanservice
* RichBitch
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Most of her outfits.
* ValleyGirl
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Dr. Isiah Friedlander]]
->"I think you need a new therapist."

->'''Voiced by:''' Bryan Scott Johnson

Michael's therapist who works for Mount Zonah Medical Center, with a clinic on the Pacific Bluffs coastline.
----
* DrJerk: Going by the information on [[http://www.rockstargames.com/V/lsbc/affordable-healthcare the game's official website]], it's implied he seems to be more interested in making money than helping patients.
** It is best demonstrated when he cuts a session short as Michael is on the edge of getting an epiphany, to ensure that he will have to come back and, not least, pay for another session.
** Since he's a full-blown over-the-top pastiche of the typical "Hollywood" psychotherapist, it's a given.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: Should the player choose to do so.]]
* LaserGuidedKarma: Read the above spoiler. [[spoiler: After his constant insulting and belittling of Micheal, his defrauding him for outrageous amounts of money for his utterly ineffective services, he plans on using Michael's life story to make himself famous.]]
* YoureInsane: His reaction to Michael's urges to return to his old criminal lifestyle is to say that he's "addicted to chaos" and tell him to find a new therapist.

!!Franklin's Friends and Associates

[[folder:Lamar Davis]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/FotoFlexer_Photo85_7229.jpg
->"[[GangBangers Gangsta]] shit, [[NWordPrivileges nigga]]!"

->'''Voiced by:''' Slink Johnson

Franklin's "crazy" friend and fellow employee at Deluxe Premium Motorsport. Appears to bug Franklin about his attempts to leave the gang behind.
----
* CoolPet[=/=]RightHandAttackDog: Chop.
* DamnItFeelsGoodToBeAGangster[=/=]TheFatalist: Zigzagged -- while he expresses pride of his gangster "heritage", he also acknowledges that he, Franklin and the rest of their homies will never truly be able to escape that kind of life.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas Lance "Ryder" Wilson]], made explicit in the first few missions, which are a CallBack to ''San Andreas''. Specifically, the first thing he does is to tell you to get a haircut (calling it "raggedy-ass"), and then immediately botch a crime when his lame disguise is seen through.
* GangBanger: Unlike Franklin, he's proud of his "heritage", claiming it's the only thing they have.
* MixedAncestry: He has some Apache blood.
* NWordPrivileges
* OddFriendship: With Trevor. They are both crazy. Trever MUCH moreso.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Franklin's blue.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Lamar literally thinks of himself as a GTA Protagonist.
* TattooedCrook
* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler: Yes Lamar, it's a brilliant idea to enter into a drug deal with a gangster you previously tried to kidnap in an abandoned warehouse. Nothing sketch about that.]]
* VitriolicBestBuds: Seems to have this relationship with Franklin, though with strong emphasis on "best buds". [[spoiler:His loyalty eventually pays off, even when Stretch betrays them to the Ballas. In fact, in the ''C Option'' ending, he even becomes your fourth man during the shootout at the foundry.]]
* WrongGenreSavvy: Early on, he comments to Franklin on how much he enjoys working for Simeon and how much it's going to suck when Simeon eventually betrays them or asks them to do something completely sick [[EvenEvilHasStandards even by their standards]], forcing them to turn on him. Doubling as a MythologyGag, with that being the standard set up for a GTA game, he's sadly unaware of how unimportant he is to the story thanks to the pressence of Mike and Trevor alongside Franklin.
** In possible Foreshadowing, he mentions this is Franklin's issue...Franklin tends to look for a way out FAST, and it blows up in his face.
** Lamar also says this shortly before LAMAR HIMSELF betrays Simeon, by stealing a bike.

->'''Voiced by:''' Demosthenes Chrysan

The Armenian owner of Premium Deluxe Motorsport, the car dealership where Franklin and Lamar work, and a corrupt sleazeball who tricks yuppies into spending beyond their means on the fanciest cars on the lot, then dispatches Franklin and Lamar to repossess the cars when the payments stop coming in.
----

* LoanShark
* NationalStereotypes: Of the Armenian diaspora, specifically of its unethical businessmen.
* SmugSnake
* StarterVillain: His main purpose is to get Franklin introduced to Michael. He lasts two missions before Franklin and Lamar leave him.
* WoundedGazelleGambit: Most of his ploys to get people to agree to his ridiculously expensive financing deal is to accuse them of being racist against him. The fact that he has two large, muscular black men working as his repo guys doesn't really help the poor shmucks he pulls it on.

An easily intimidated and bumbling man who is the cousin of Wade.
----
* BreakTheCutie: The "cutie" part is debatable, but overall he's an honest man that believes in hard work, and is so soft spoken and spineless that it's almost endearing... and then Trevor does his best to utterly break him. Abusing him, hitting him, stealing from him, forcibly involving him in his criminal schemes, ''raping'' him, and [[spoiler: eventually killing him]], all the while trashing his home and turning it into a pigsty while he's too weak to do anything about it.
* ButtMonkey: Even more so than Wade. It appears to [[Main/ItRunsInTheFamily run in the family]].
* ExtremeDoormat: To both his overbearing girlfriend and to Trevor.

[[folder: The Vanilla Unicorn]]

The only strip club in town, or at least, the only one the protagonists can/do visit. Each of the dancers is a unique (if not particularly in-depth) character, and if Michael, Franklin, and Trevor play their cards right, they can take them home for some private fun.

* BrainlessBeauty: Several of the girls are obviously not very bright.
* DumbBlonde: Chastity is a natural blonde, but dyed her hair black when she went goth. She's also one of the dancers that comes off as less than intelligent.
* FriendsWithBenefits: Of the "fuck buddy" variety; once the guys manage to get the girl into it enough to be invited home, they can be called up at just about any time for a booty call, but have no impact or relationship beyond that. All three protagonists can be fucking all of the girls and it never gets brought up.
* GoldDigger: Infernus admits she's only taking the boys home for their money. The others may or may not be this, or they may just be horny. It should be noted that unless you go back to the club to tip them or buy dances from them, you never have to spend another penny on the girls to maintain a sexual relationship with them.
* MsFanservice: All of them, obviously. They put on very provocative dances on stage, and if you get a private dance, they go topless with realistic breasts, and take it a step further if you get a double dance. If you take them home, you don't get a sex scene, but sometimes the girls will give you a blow job as you drive, and just like the hookers, it's fully animated.
* RomanceSidequest / OptionalSexualEncounter
* OfCorsetsSexy: Sapphire and Chastity.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Strippers, as a rule, do not dance under their real names, but even the ones who take you back to their home and give you their numbers won't give you their real names, always appearing in your contact list under their stripper names.
* PerkyGoth: Chastity.
* STDImmunity: Possibly aversion; some of the excuses Nikki will give when she's not available for a booty call make it sound like she's recovering from something.
* {{Stripperific}}: Well, obviously. But some of the girls take it to an absurd level; when leaving the club, Nikki and Infernus will at least put on a jacket over their outfit, but Sapphire and Juliet come out of the club wearing their "uniforms".

Characters/GrandTheftAutoVProtagonists
* AwfulWeddedLife: To Amanda, with whom he trades curses and screams.
Characters/GrandTheftAutoVFriendsFamilyAndAssociates
* {{Badass}}
** BadassInANiceSuit: Due to his more affluent lifestyle compared to the other protagonists.
** RetiredBadass: Initially.
Characters/GrandTheftAutoVCharactersFromGrandTheftAutoIV
* BecauseImGoodAtIt: Subverted. He claims to come out of retirement because he doesn't have any talents except bank robbery but really he's only making excuses to jump back into the game so he doesn't have to put up with his fractured and mundane domestic life.
Characters/GrandTheftAutoVAntagonists
* BerserkButton: He doesn't really mind Amanda's cheating -- in fact, he also cheats on her quite frequently, and both are pretty honest about the fact that their marriage had ran its course. What ''does'' rile him up, however, is the fact that she had to cheat on him in ''their'' house, on ''their'' bed, with a guy ''he is paying to spend time with her''.
-->"If I have to use a motel, she has to use a motel!"
* BulletTime: His special ability, ''VideoGame/MaxPayne'' style.
* CatchPhrase: Turns out it isn't a great idea for a career criminal to have a signature catchphrase, but Michael can't resist, seen above.
* ChronicVillainy: He is bored by civilian life and cannot come to terms with it, and therefore uses Amanda's spendthrift lifestyle as an excuse for him to return to a life of crime.
* ClimbingClimax: The "Kill [[spoiler:Mike]]" ending concludes with Franklin pursuing Mike up an industrial catwalk, trading gunfire and accusations. Mike eventually [[spoiler:topples over the edge and dies]].
* {{Cuckold}}: His wife constantly cheats on him with any man she can. Though Michael is just as bad with his girlfriends, there's not much drama or conflict about that.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DisproportionateRetribution: He catches Amanda's tennis instructor in bed with her. So he chases him down and tears down his house. [[FromBadToWorse Except it wasn't his house]].
* {{Expy}}: To Neil [=McCauley=] of ''Film/{{Heat}}'' as well as his actor, RobertDeNiro.
** And much like Franklin, some might say he's one for [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCity Tommy Vercetti]]. Appropriately enough, given his close resemblance to Tommy's voice actor, Ray Liotta.
** His bio reads a lot like [[TV/TheSopranos Tony Soprano's]].
* FakingTheDead: Apparently killed by the cops during a past operation with Trevor in North Yankton, Canada. In fact, he was put into Witness Protection by the government and sent off to live in Los Santos, where he and his family had to change their surname from "Townley" to "de Santa".
* [[spoiler:FatalFamilyPhoto]]: The "Kill [[spoiler:Mike]]" ending hammers this home with a phone call from Amanda: Their daughter got accepted into college. Mike is elated at the prospect of reuniting his family. Franklin, who is preparing to [[spoiler:dispose of Mike]], keeps his game face on but has trouble hiding his guilt.
* GoodIsBoring: Although the initial cause of his troubles is due to a mistake with a cartel, he really does want to return to a life of crime. May cross over with BeingGoodSucks seeing how his family life has gone down the tubes during his "retirement".
* InHarmsWay: Dr. Friedlander diagnoses him with an outright addiction to chaos.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: If the player chooses Option B.]]
* TheMentor: To Franklin.
* MisBlamed: [[invoked]] Amanda blames their failing marriage on his criminal activities; however, it was falling apart long before he got back into the game.
* TheMovieBuff: Up to the point of basing an armored car robbery [[SawItInAMovieOnce off a scene he saw in a movie]].
* OneManArmy: His special ability is bullet time similar to ''Max Payne''.
* OhCrap: His reaction when he realized that he ended up offending Martin Madrazo and his cartel (and saddled with a $2.5 million debt) by destroying one of their houses, where the tennis instructor whom Amanda cheated on him with hid, and later when Trevor tracks him down on his house.
* PapaWolf: He might not be on good terms with his children, but the ''moment'' he finds they're in danger, or potential danger, he leaps into action.
* ParentalNeglect: He has a hard time understanding his kids, and therefore he often leaves them to their own devices.
* RetiredOutlaw: Again, initially.
* SawItInAMovieOnce: A small heist mission entitled "Blitz Play", which is based off of ''{{Film/Heat}}'', has him saying he got the idea for it from a movie.
* SharpDressedMan: In contrast to the more casual Franklin and the extremely casual Trevor.
* SmokingIsCool: When switching to Michael, he can often be seen smoking a cigarette before the player takes control.
* TheStoolPigeon: His situation in exchange for the FIB's protection.
* TakeMyHand: During their last standoff in the "Kill [[spoiler:Mike]] ending, Mike's scuffle with Franklin sends him toppling over the rail. Franklin appears to relent and tries pulling Mike up from the scaffold. [[spoiler:He still plummets to his death]].
* VictoryIsBoring: Rockstar describes him as a GTA protagonist a few years after "winning" the game.
* VillainProtagonist: He is a career criminal after all.
* YourCheatingHeart: Is cheating on his wife.
* WhyAreYouNotMySon: Feels this way toward Franklin.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: Used to work together with Trevor before his apparent death, only to be reunited after pulling a heist that gets TV coverage.
* WitnessProtection: Currently under the FIB's aegis in exchange for his cooperation.

->'''Voiced by:''' Steven Ogg

A former airman, career criminal, and Michael's old best friend and partner in crime, now a sociopathic drug addict living in a trailer park full of meth heads and biker gangs by the Alamo Sea (based on the real-life Salton Sea) in Blaine County.
----
* AcePilot: The team's designated pilot.
* AnythingThatMoves: Not only does he frequently make sexual passes at people (regardless of gender), but he even carves holes into Floyd's teddy bear so he can have sex with it. [[spoiler:Sometimes, should the player jump to Trevor, he can be seen getting out of bed with Floyd, who is curled into a fetal position and crying.]]
** If he gets a double dance at the Vanilla Unicorn, he'll comment "If only we had another guy join us. That would be a real party."
* AxCrazy: Even when ''not'' under the player's control, he can still be seen roaming around and killing people, such as the Los Santos chapter of The Lost MC.
* {{Badass}}: Dude takes out two chapters of The Lost ''by himself''.
* [[BaldOfEvil Balding of Evil]]: Most of his hairstyles don't cover that bald spot.
* TheBerserker: It's hard to imagine Trevor ''not'' being a combat maniac.
* BerserkButton:
** Whenever someone threatens his company or crew, the results are truly horrifying.
** Don't threaten Michael's family either.
** He ''seriously'' hates being called a hipster.
*** And if there's one thing he hates more than that, it's being called a motherfucker. All of the rampage missions start with someone making that mistake.
** Actually, he pretty much has a HairTriggerTemper, meaning there are probably too many {{Berserk Button}}s to count.
* BloodKnight: He loves violence and chaos. [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential Does he remind you of someone?]]
* TheBrute: Picking a fight with Trevor is going to result in someone having a ''very'' bad day. [[spoiler:Unless you're Michael or Franklin]].
* BunnyEarsLawyer: If the fact that he isn't utterly batshit insane hasn't been established yet, here's another reminder. That said, he's still an extremely efficient thief, surprisingly insightful, and despite their obvious issues, a loyal friend to Michael.
* CanadaEh: He is actually Canadian. Then again, according to himself, he grew up so close to the border that he might have actually been born in the US.
-->"'ABOOT'?! I DON'T EVEN SOUND THAT CANADIAN!"
** Merges a bit with InkSuitActor, since Steven Ogg himself is Canadian.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Aside from his AxCrazy behavior, he's just plain weird.
* ColdBloodedTorture: Seen inflicting it with electrodes in his trailer.
** Hilariously, and horrifyingly, he fully admits that the TortureAlwaysWorks trope is a crock of shit; he believes it's useless as a means of gathering information. [[ForTheEvulz But it's a damn good way to keep yourself entertained for an afternoon.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: When not being psychotically violent, he's got a surprisingly dry and acerbic wit.
* DeathSeeker: Implied. He has a tattoo of a dotted line on his neck with the words "Cut Here."
* DepravedBisexual: It's pretty clear that Trevor just ''doesn't care'' who he screws. Woman, man, teddy bear, he'll do it.
* DespairEventHorizon: Michael's ([[FakingTheDead faked]]) death seems to have been this for him, as evidenced by his attitude and "RIP Michael" tattoo.
* TheDreaded: Michael is, at least initially, terrified of him and the chaos he may/will cause. Michael (rather accurately) describes him to Franklin as "Hell walking on Earth."
* DirtyOldMan: Age has certainly not dulled his libido.
* EqualOpportunityEvil[=/=]HatesEveryoneEqually: For an AxCrazy, drug-addicted, murderous psychopath who operates in racist redneck towns, he's remarkably fair-minded, until he decides to murder you in a horrible way.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Trevor loves his mother enough to steal a van full of delutoral for her just because she asks him to... She also refused to let him back into his trailer until then. Either way, it can't be argued that he dotes on her... [[spoiler: Which makes it all the more sad when, after he brings the van back to the trailer, he runs in and calls out for her while he searches all of the rooms. When it's clear that she's nowhere in the house, he falls to the ground screaming with his hands on his head.]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Believe it or not, he does. The most noticeable example is bigotry, as he is EqualOpportunityEvil.
* {{Expy}}: He bears a few similarities to [[KaneAndLynch James Lynch]].
** [[PrisonBreak Theodore Bagwell]], anyone?
** He would get along with [[{{Film/Red}} Marvin Boggs]] just fine.
* FreudianExcuse: Seems to have turned to drugs and become addicted to them (thereby developing his AxCrazy behavior) due to his hard childhood. In one of the trailers this exchange occurs:
-->'''Michael:''' "What is wrong with you?"\\
'''Trevor:''' "Abandonment issues. I see a shrink once a week."
** Then again, [[DissonantSerenity the cheerful way he quips it]] implies he's being a DeadpanSnarker, (complete with a dig at Michael needing a psychologist) ...or [[StepfordSmiler even crazier than usual]].
** He also remarks that his father "wasn't very nice to him."
** Dialogue from his MushroomSamba implies that [[spoiler:he was molested by a clown when he was a child.]]
* FriendshipMoment: In the intro, he refuses to leave the injured Michael behind to the mercy of the police, despite being heavily outnumbered. Michael has to repeatedly beg him to run and save himself before Trevor finally agrees to do it.
* GeniusBruiser: Don't let his looks fool you -- the most dangerous thing about Trevor isn't his military training or psychosis: it's his intellect and charisma, a fact that becomes evident within the first twenty minutes of playing as him.
** One notable example occurs when he accompanies Franklin and Lamar to buy bricks of cocaine. Even though Lamar tries a sample from one end of a brick, Trevor is savvy enough to ask for a sample from the opposite end and becomes suspicious when the seller refuses. Unsurprisingly, what was supposed to be a kilogram of coke turns out to be closer to an ounce.
* GoodScarsEvilScars
* HairTriggerTemper: The triggers themselves are often hilarious.
* HonoraryUncle: To Michael's kids. They seem to actually like him and in turn he's quite protective of them.
* HotBlooded: The most energetic of the trio.
* ItAmusedMe: Pretty much his MO.
* {{Jerkass}}
* [[spoiler:KarmicDeath]] / ManOnFire: In the "Kill [[spoiler:Trevor]] ending, he [[spoiler:crashes his truck into a gasoline tanker]], which is ignited by Franklin's pistol. Mike bitterly comments on this being [[spoiler:a fitting end]].
* KickTheDog: When he viciously kills [[spoiler:Johnny Klebitz, and the rest of the Lost MC]].
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: If the player chooses Option A.]]
* LaughablyEvil: Has his moments. Where else can you see a man butchering people one day, then found lying on the beach half-naked and stoned out of his wits the next?
* LikesOlderWomen: Patricia, who's ''57.''
* LimitBreak: His special ability activates a "Frenzy" mode, where he deals double damage and receives half as much.
* MoralityPet: Patricia Madrazo, wife of ruthless Cartel boss Martin Madrazo. Despite his original intent to kidnap her and use her as leverage because Martin refused to pay him, ''the two genuinely ended up bonding.'' [[spoiler:Given how abusive Martin is with her, she likely loves him.]]
* OneManArmy: His frenzy mode is a reflection of this.
** He also is the character who gets the traditional rampages.
** Most gangs in the franchise follow a typical structure of a boss leading a handful of captains, who in turn lead dozens of soldiers. Trevor Philips Enterprises only has one soldier: Trevor.
* OddFriendship: With Lamar. They are genuinely fond of each other.
* ThePigPen: Personal hygiene is not high on his list of priorities. His most frequent outfit is a filthy white v-neck t-shirt, an equally grubby pair of either gray sweatpants or jeans, and a pair of well-worn hiking boots.
* PetTheDog: Despite his insanity and immorality, he seems to genuinely care for Michael's children, or at least Tracey. He is infuriated when he learns that a television show plans to embarrass her in front of the nation, and she even seems happy to see him! [[spoiler:He even drives off Mr. K -- the guy he ''viciously'' tortured minutes earlier on Steve's orders -- to the airport, instead of killing him as Steve wanted, urging him to leave Los Santos for good.]]
* {{Sadist}}
* TheSociopath: And loving it.
* TeachHimAnger: A lot of the time he antagonizes Michael and Franklin simply to get them to show some backbone. This is ''only'' the case with Mike and Frank, however. Anyone else who stands up to him will be beaten down. [[spoiler: Poor Floyd and Rebecca.]]
* TokenEvilTeammate: While Michael and Franklin seem more like {{Anti Villain}}s, Trevor is an unrepentant psycho.
* UnflinchingWalk: Does this away from an exploding house.
* VillainProtagonist: As if it wasn't obvious enough.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: To Michael, whom he thought was dead for 9 years, at least until they reunite at the start of the game.
* YouBastard: WordOfGod confirms that Trevor is, essentially, the [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential average]] ''Grand Theft Auto'' player ''incarnate'', with all the unpleasant characteristics that would come with such a person in real life.
** Likely invoked in ''[[EstablishingCharacterMoment the very first instance we see him]]'', where he's revealed to have [[spoiler: [[TheCorrupter turned Johnny Klebitz into a strung out meth-head]], [[YourCheatingHeart was screwing Ashley senseless when Johnny wasn't looking]], [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown stomped Johnny's head to paste]] when [[WhatTheHellHero he dared to call Trevor out]], and then uses his death as an excuse [[OmnicidalManiac to wipe out the rest of the Lost MC]].]]

An ex-gang banger from South Los Santos who yearns to leave the lifestyle he deems destructive -- by working as a repo man for Premium Deluxe Motorsport in Vespucci Beach (the equivalent of Venice Beach).
----

** BadassDriver: Has the best driving skill of the three protagonists, and has a special ability for cars.

* CoolPet[=/=]RightHandAttackDog: Chop. Technically, he's Lamar's dog, but Franklin often borrows him for repo jobs in case the vehicles' owners are uncooperative.
* DeadpanSnarker: Especially when it comes Lamar's {{Get Rich Quick Scheme}}s, Jimmy's PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy attitude, and his aunt's outlandish attempts to get in touch with her femininity.
* DoggedNiceGuy: Although Franklin's possibly not ''that'' much of a nice guy, this is his relationship with Tenisha.
* {{Expy}}: A black gang banger whose friends give him crap for leaving the gang for supposedly selfish reasons? Are we talking about Franklin or [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas Carl Johnson]]?
* GangBanger: He is trying to escape this life, viewing it as self-destructive.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* TheLancer: To Michael.
* LikeASonToMe: Michael calls him "the son I always wanted."
* NewMeat: When compared to Michael and Trevor.

* TheStoner: He's a habitual pot smoker.

* WideEyedIdealist: Sincerely believes that he (and his homies) can leave behind the life of drug trafficking, gang wars and foul run-ins with the law. The rest of his gang chew him out for this, claiming he has gone "soft".

->'''Voiced by:''' Vicki Van Tassel

Michael's wife. After being uprooted due to the FIB's WitnessProtection, she's developed a strained relationship with her husband, preferring to spend time shopping with his bank account. Her constant burning through Michael's funds forces him to return to his life of crime.
----
* AwfulWeddedLife: To Michael, with whom she trades curses and screams. [[spoiler: She eventually goes with Michael to get therapy, and after a jarring argument that takes up thier session, she simply asks that he doesn't get himself killed.]]
* GoldDigger: According to Trevor, Mike met Amanda when she was a stripper and their relationship was started on the basis of him buying her breast implants so she could make more money.
* GrudgingThankYou: [[spoiler:After an optional mission where Michael helps her escape the police]].
* Hypocrite: Not two minutes after she and the children listed off the various guys she's cheated on Michael with, [[spoiler: she demands that Michael stop his own cheating if he wants her to come back, criticizing him for his behavior while never once apologizing for her own, or explicitly saying she intends to stop.]]
** There's also the matter of [[spoiler: The side mission where you have to save her from getting arrested after shoplifting.]]

[[folder:James "Jimmy" [=Townley/de Santa=]]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Jimmy_tvtropes_7393.jpg
->"Alright, [[TotallyRadical let's bounce]]."

->'''Voiced by:''' Danny Tamberelli

Michael and Amanda's lazy, whiny, 20-year-old stoner son.
----
* BasementDweller: He doesn't live in a basement, but he otherwise fits all the rest of this trope's definition, leeching off of his parents, living in their house on their dime, and refusing to grow up.
* CallingTheOldManOut: Is brave (or stupid) enough to call his retired gangster father an asshole right to his face. In fact, the ''first'' thing he does after being rescued from Michael's stolen yacht is the mention the dysfunction of their family.
* ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike: Mind you, he doesn't do it ''during'' the actual rescue, but after Mike and Frank save him from the guys stealing the Yacht, he does nothing but complain about how psychotic Mike is for engaging in that kind of behavior, killing those guys, instead of calling the cops.
* DumbassTeenageSon: Though no longer teenaged, he still fits the mold.
* EntitledBastard: The tattoo on his neck saying "Entitled" is a dead giveaway.
* FatBastard: He gets better.
* FlippingTheBird: To Tracy in [[http://backend.meristation.com/files/imagenes/juegos/360/action/sandbox/grand_theft_auto_v/jimmy_and_tracey_19_rgb.jpg this picture.]]
* {{GIFT}}: When playing online shooter games against other players, his mouth spews forth homophobic slurs like a faucet.
* {{Hypocrite}}: He criticizes[[note]]That word does not begin to convey the amount of shit he gives his father[[/note]] Michael for the same behavior that he admires Franklin and Trevor for committing.
* LazyBum: As Michael says while talking to his shrink, all Jimmy does is sit in his room all day smoking pot, masturbate, and play video games. Although Michael does get him out of the house from time to time.
* NWordPrivileges: He doesn't have them, but he still refers to himself as "nigga" when playing video games.
* PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy: He speaks in hip-hop slang that he heard on the radio, and wears a Fruntalot shirt (a parody of urban wear brands like Fubu). His father mocks him for it in one scene.
-->'''Jimmy:''' Let's bounce.\\
'''Michael:''' "[[LampshadeHanging 'Bounce'?]] [[IsThatWhatTheyreCallingItNow We're 'bouncing' now?]]"
** Franklin also comments on it (that and his liberal use of the word "nigga"), considering it more amusing than offensive, though he also politely warns him against acting like that to other black people unless he really wants to get his ass kicked.
* SelfDeprecation: He is, if anything, quite aware how screwed up his social situation and his family is.
* TheStoner
* TattooedCrook: Though he's not much of one.
* TotallyRadical: InUniverse. He likes to pretend to be gangsta by repeating the hip-hop slang he hears on the radio.
* UngratefulBastard
* WellDoneSonGuy: He admits that his less than stellar attempts to act cool is mainly motivated by a wish to impress his dad.

->'''Voiced by:''' Michal Sinnott

Michael and Amanda's whiny teenage daughter.
----
* AlliterativeName
* AlphaBitch
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: To Jimmy.
* BareYourMidriff: Justified, since the game takes place in a pastiche of Southern California.
* BrattyTeenageDaughter: [[spoiler: Lighten's up in ''Reuniting the Family''.]]
* ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike: A little more justified in her case as, unlike Jimmy, she wasn't in immediately life threatening situations when her father, and later her father and HonoraryUncle step in.
* DumbBlonde
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: To Michael's shame. If he sees her drunk on the staircase inside their house, he wonders if she's really his daughter.
* HopelessAuditionees: One mission involves preventing her from being featured as one of these on an AmericasGotTalent style show.
** TakeOurWordForIt is averted, folks... it's not so much that she's a BAD dancer, as her dancing is best suited for a strip club.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: She screams at Michael for being a psychopath, meanwhile she absolutely loves Trevor.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Shows this later on when [[spoiler:Amanda leaves Michael. Tracey sent him heartwarming emails saying that while she still thinks he's a dick, she really misses him]].

->"I think you need a new therapist."

->'''Voiced by:''' Bryan Scott Johnson

Michael's therapist who works for Mount Zonah Medical Center, with a clinic on the Pacific Bluffs coastline.
----
* DrJerk: Going by the information on [[http://www.rockstargames.com/V/lsbc/affordable-healthcare the game's official website]], it's implied he seems to be more interested in making money than helping patients.
** It is best demonstrated when he cuts a session short as Michael is on the edge of getting an epiphany, to ensure that he will have to come back and, not least, pay for another session.
** Since he's a full-blown over-the-top pastiche of the typical "Hollywood" psychotherapist, it's a given.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: Should the player choose to do so.]]
* LaserGuidedKarma: Read the above spoiler. [[spoiler: After his constant insulting and belittling of Micheal, his defrauding him for outrageous amounts of money for his utterly ineffective services, he plans on using Michael's life story to make himself famous.]]
* YoureInsane: His reaction to Michael's urges to return to his old criminal lifestyle is to say that he's "addicted to chaos" and tell him to find a new therapist.

->'''Voiced by:''' Slink Johnson

Franklin's "crazy" friend and fellow employee at Deluxe Premium Motorsport. Appears to bug Franklin about his attempts to leave the gang behind.
----
* CoolPet[=/=]RightHandAttackDog: Chop.
* DamnItFeelsGoodToBeAGangster[=/=]TheFatalist: Zigzagged -- while he expresses pride of his gangster "heritage", he also acknowledges that he, Franklin and the rest of their homies will never truly be able to escape that kind of life.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas Lance "Ryder" Wilson]], made explicit in the first few missions, which are a CallBack to ''San Andreas''. Specifically, the first thing he does is to tell you to get a haircut (calling it "raggedy-ass"), and then immediately botch a crime when his lame disguise is seen through.
* GangBanger: Unlike Franklin, he's proud of his "heritage", claiming it's the only thing they have.
* MixedAncestry: He has some Apache blood.
* NWordPrivileges
* OddFriendship: With Trevor. They are both crazy. Trever MUCH moreso.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Franklin's blue.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Lamar literally thinks of himself as a GTA Protagonist.
* TattooedCrook
* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler: Yes Lamar, it's a brilliant idea to enter into a drug deal with a gangster you previously tried to kidnap in an abandoned warehouse. Nothing sketch about that.]]
* VitriolicBestBuds: Seems to have this relationship with Franklin, though with strong emphasis on "best buds". [[spoiler:His loyalty eventually pays off, even when Stretch betrays them to the Ballas. In fact, in the ''C Option'' ending, he even becomes your fourth man during the shootout at the foundry.]]
* WrongGenreSavvy: Early on, he comments to Franklin on how much he enjoys working for Simeon and how much it's going to suck when Simeon eventually betrays them or asks them to do something completely sick [[EvenEvilHasStandards even by their standards]], forcing them to turn on him. Doubling as a MythologyGag, with that being the standard set up for a GTA game, he's sadly unaware of how unimportant he is to the story thanks to the pressence of Mike and Trevor alongside Franklin.
** In possible Foreshadowing, he mentions this is Franklin's issue...Franklin tends to look for a way out FAST, and it blows up in his face.
** Lamar also says this shortly before LAMAR HIMSELF betrays Simeon, by stealing a bike.

----
* BaldOfEvil: Well, Bald of Sleaze anyway.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive
* FakeNationality: Simeon is Armenian. His voice actor, Demosthenes Chrysan, is obviously a Greek.
* HonestJohnsDealership: He runs one.
* {{Jerkass}}
* LaserGuidedKarma: Michael catches Franklin repossessing his family SUV at Simeon's orders, holding him at gunpoint and making him crash through Premium Deluxe Motorsport's glass window. Cue Michael beating the shit out of Simeon ([[KickTheSonOfABitch with actual player control]]), then saying he really doesn't want to make a return visit before leaving.
* LoanShark
* NationalStereotypes: Of the Armenian diaspora, specifically of its unethical businessmen.
* SmugSnake
* StarterVillain: His main purpose is to get Franklin introduced to Michael. He lasts two missions before Franklin and Lamar leave him.
* WoundedGazelleGambit: Most of his ploys to get people to agree to his ridiculously expensive financing deal is to accuse them of being racist against him. The fact that he has two large, muscular black men working as his repo guys doesn't really help the poor shmucks he pulls it on.

Abusing him, hitting him, stealing from him, forcibly involving him in his criminal schemes, ''raping'' him, and [[spoiler: eventually killing him]], all the while trashing his home and turning it into a pigsty while he's too weak to do anything about it.

[[folder: The Vanilla Unicorn]]

The only strip club in town, or at least, the only one the protagonists can/do visit. Each of the dancers is a unique (if not particularly in-depth) character, and if Michael, Franklin, and Trevor play their cards right, they can take them home for some private fun.

* BrainlessBeauty: Several of the girls are obviously not very bright.
* DumbBlonde: Chastity is a natural blonde, but dyed her hair black when she went goth. She's also one of the dancers that comes off as less than intelligent.
* FriendsWithBenefits: Of the "fuck buddy" variety; once the guys manage to get the girl into it enough to be invited home, they can be called up at just about any time for a booty call, but have no impact or relationship beyond that. All three protagonists can be fucking all of the girls and it never gets brought up.
* GoldDigger: Infernus admits she's only taking the boys home for their money. The others may or may not be this, or they may just be horny. It should be noted that unless you go back to the club to tip them or buy dances from them, you never have to spend another penny on the girls to maintain a sexual relationship with them.
* MsFanservice: All of them, obviously. They put on very provocative dances on stage, and if you get a private dance, they go topless with realistic breasts, and take it a step further if you get a double dance. If you take them home, you don't get a sex scene, but sometimes the girls will give you a blow job as you drive, and just like the hookers, it's fully animated.
* RomanceSidequest / OptionalSexualEncounter
* OfCorsetsSexy: Sapphire and Chastity.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Strippers, as a rule, do not dance under their real names, but even the ones who take you back to their home and give you their numbers won't give you their real names, always appearing in your contact list under their stripper names.
* PerkyGoth: Chastity.
* STDImmunity: Possibly aversion; some of the excuses Nikki will give when she's not available for a booty call make it sound like she's recovering from something.
* {{Stripperific}}: Well, obviously. But some of the girls take it to an absurd level; when leaving the club, Nikki and Infernus will at least put on a jacket over their outfit, but Sapphire and Juliet come out of the club wearing their "uniforms".
