** There's also the reason why Trevor is an AcePilot: Aside in-story that he was a former pilot in the air force, your typical GTA player, if they're tired of driving, will fly in planes and helicopters just to explore the skies.

** Franklin is aware of this fault with himself, as he comments numerous times throughout the game that he really has to learn to say 'No' to people, usually when Tonya is guilt-tripping him into helping JB ''again'' or when Dom is telling him to do something reckless and dangerous. This makes him finally breaking the habit a great personal victory, as he's finally turned someone down.

* Why do Patricia and Trevor get along so well? It's not StockholmSyndrome, it's a RescueRomance. Remember how Martin treats her - He's a violent maniac who has no sense of duty, loyalty, or honesty and is also verbally and emotionally abusive towards her. Trevor is the same kind of violent maniac but it's clear he has a sense of duty (he kidnapped her because Martin stiffed him on pay he felt he was due) and honesty (he freely admits he's a violent psychopathic thug) and he treats her very well even as a hostage. We also know (and Patricia likely learned) that Trevor is a very loyal person, which means he has all the major qualities Patricia favors but Martin lacks. And while we don't get to see it on screen, it's likely that Patricia's kidnapping was a huge moment of catharsis for her as she got to see someone finally stand up to Martin and be just as abusive towards him as he is towards her.

\n* Why Michael is "freaking out" about the heist in the Prologue being blown? [[spoiler: Considering the deal he made with Norton, he wanted to ensure that both Trevor and Brad had no good reason to think he was behind the heist being blown.]]

* Why do all three protagonists have a different phone each, but the online protagonist can only have an iFruit phone?Because online takes place 6 months before, when the iPhone was the main smartphone.

** Or yet another alternative: They're simply an Easter Egg without their appearance having any deeper meaning whatsoever. Which, given the fact that they don't really look as if they are in their 40s (which would be the case considering that GTA 5 takes place 21 years after the events of GTA:SA), is the most likely explanation. Sorry for being a buzzkill.

* Trevor says his father disappeared and says he "wasn't very nice". Later, when Floyd and Debra threaten him he says they '"aren't very fucking nice"...guess what happens to them...and we can now assume what happened to Trevor's father.

* Why do cars from ''Videogame/GrandTheftAuto2'' appear in ''Grand Theft Auto 5?'' It's because they both take place in 2013!

* The little CJ/Ryder/Big Smoke Cameo in Hood Safari hints they are in this era, but why are they good friends? Because in this continuity the Families have zero qualms dealing hard drugs so Smoke and Ryder never had to betray CJ and Sweet.

*** Given the game's satirical nature, it's entirely possible that the Z-Type's 'ten of a kind' gimmick is a marketing ploy.

*** It's entirely plausible that they meant "ten survived" which would fit well with the Online Protagonist's antics.

** Bizarrely though, Trevor's stamina skill is noticeably very ''low'' despite GTA players likely running everywhere.
