* TakeOverTheCity: Averted, and surprisingly so, considering how the [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCity installments]] [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas that]] [[GrandTheftAutoLibertyCityStories directly]] [[GrandTheftAutoViceCityStories preceded]] it played out. At the end of the game, Niko is no better off, [[DudeWheresMyRespect influence-wise]], save for being responsible for the decline of two [[TheMafia criminal]] [[TheMafiya organizations]]. Some would even say he's worse off by [[DownerEnding the game's ending]] [[spoiler: no matter [[MultipleEndings which one you choose]].]]

** Disloyalty is another one for Niko. When he finds Michelle was an undercover agent he drops his normally collected demeanor and calls her a "fucking bitch".

Added DiffLines:

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: Utilising cheats in this game is considerably more cumbersome because they have to be entered as a phone number into the player's phone, as opposed to typing them into the game with the keyboard. However, successfully entering a cheat number adds it as a contact in the phone, allowing it to be used fairly quickly when needed.

** Bernie is also seen by some players to be this.

* BittersweetEnding: The penultimate mission has you choose between overseeing a heroin deal with [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder Dimitri]] for Pegorino or using the opportunity [[{{Revenge}} to kill Dimitri]]. If you take the former, [[spoiler:Kate dumps you and Dimitri [[WhatAnIdiot screws you over during the deal (though you still get the money if you succeed)]], then tries to kill Niko at Roman's wedding. Unfortunately, [[MoralEventHorizon Roman is killed]] instead, though Kate does reconcile with Niko after]]. Take the latter, [[spoiler:then Roman survives, but [[CycleOfRevenge Pegorino kills Kate while trying to kill Niko at Roman's wedding]]]]. Either way, the game cannot be completed with everyone Niko supposedly cares about surviving.

** Actually, there are 2 missions where this does not apply: A Revenger's Tragedy and Out Of Commission. Once you get to Dmitri/Pegorino's hideout to begin the shootout, if you fail the mission, when you agree to the text message asking if you want to redo the mission, you don't start from the beginning of the mission. You skip the car chase and end up in the cut scene where Niko and Jacob (and Roman in Commission) drive down the embankment toward the hideout.

** The main game has the Enforcer and the Police Stockade, law enforcement transports that lumber about and roll in turns but come with nifty bulletproof armor.
** ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIVTheLostAndDamned Lost]]'' has you make [[GreatEscape a daring prison breakout]] in an armored Prison Bus. It is naturally slower than Johnny's pursuers, so you will need a bit of driving finesse to escape with your cargo.
