* UsefulNotes/DeggansRule: The game has a black main protagonist, CJ. His family and gang are also black, but the supporting cast beyond that is fairly diverse. The only time the subject of race is brought up is when his brother Sweet and sister Kendl argue over her dating a Latino, Caesar, but the relationship endures and Caesar becomes one of CJ's most loyal allies.

* ScrewedByTheLawyers: Like in Vice City, some songs had to be removed from the game after their contract ended. Unfortunately, while those who owned the steam version of Vice City beforehand got to keep the songs, San Andreas's songs went bye-bye from earlier owners as well, likely because of how the radio works (Before SA, all radio channels were a single file, while SA plays invidual songs in random order). Because of this, some rereleases lack some of the songs the original had.

** Many similar rumors abound, such as the existence of Film/{{Jaws}}[[note]]Sharks, along with other wildlife, would show up for real in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV''[[/note]], the Loch Ness Monster, [[Franchise/TheTexasChainsawMassacre Leatherface]], etc. Most of these have been officially refuted.

** According to Rockstar, they played around with the idea of multiple protagonists for this game, presumably one for each city. While this was eventually dropped, it resurfaced later in GTA V. The idea was scrapped probably because of hardware limitations, but this could explain CJ's slight personality quirks throughout the storyline.

** In one of Lamar's missions, you actually go to where CJ's house on the cul-de-sac would be. It's designed differently and the place is controlled by the Ballas now, but the Grove Street Families are referenced here and there. Turns out that they moved to [[{{Pun}} greener]] pastures.
** Various mentions of "The OG, Johnson" are made in pedestrian dialogue. CJ has apparently reached some kind of mythical status with the Families.

* NamesTheSame: San Andreas is either a town in California or a crime-ridden state strongly based on California.

!!''San Andreas'' references in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'':



** There're plenty of {{callback}}s to this game: One of the radio stations is the HD equivalent of WCTR, the [[ChurchOfHappyology Epsilon Program]] led by Cris Formage. The gangs you'll come across are the Chamberlain Hills Gangster Families, of which the Grove Street Families used to be a set. The Ballas have taken over the Grove Street cul-de-sac in the 21 years between the two games. The Los Santos Vagos and the Varrios Los Aztecas also make appearances, though the Aztecas are somewhat different, now a gun-running cartel in the countryside.

** Another was that there were "ghost cars" that would spawn in some precise locations and drive around without a driver. These "ghost cars" were just abandoned, wrecked cars that the game spawned in hilly areas. Since new cars don't spawn with their parking brakes on, they'd sometimes just roll down the hills.

** One of the big ones was that there existed a Sasquatch (Bigfoot) character somewhere on the map, which was "proven" by some people with Photoshopped images. There's no Bigfoot in the game code. However, a Sasquatch not only ''did'' appear in ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption''[='s=] [[HalloweenEpisode Undead Nightmare]] DLC, but that game let you ''kill and skin him''. And the achievement you get for doing so? "Six Years In The Making". Undead Nightmare was released six years after ''San Andreas'', to the day. The final bonus mission in ''GTA V'' [[spoiler:also had Franklin being enlisted by a man who'd been looking for Sasquatch for nine years (the amount of time between the releases of ''San Andreas'' and ''V'') to help him hunt one. It turns out to be a guy in a Sasquatch suit, though.]]

** There are so many things that were planned or removed from the game before release, it would be impossible to list them all here. [[http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Beta_Releases_in_GTA_San_Andreas This article]] on the GTA wiki list most of the known changes.

* RetroactiveRecognition: Tarnell's voice actor is Shawn Fonteno, who would later voiced and motion captured Franklin Clinton in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV''. It also made him one of the few voice actors in ''Series/GrandTheftAuto'' to appear in two different universes (SA is part of 3D Universe, V is part of HD Universe).
