* NoPartyGiven: Despite the game's extensive mockery of the AmericanPoliticalSystem, the word "Democrat" is never used, and the only use of "Republican" is in the title of the show ''[[Radio/GTARadio Republican Space Rangers]]''. However, it can be inferred that Governatorial candidate John Hunter and Liberty City mayor Julio Ochoa are Democrats, while deputy mayor Bryce Dawkins, Governatorial candidate Michael Graves, and [[OurPresidentsAreDifferent President Joe Lawton]] are Republicans.

* TheNewRussia and {{Ruritania}}: The actual locations never appear in-game, but there are frequent references made to them, and many of the main characters are from there (Dimitri Rascalov and the Faustins are from Russia, Niko and Roman Bellic are Serbian, and the Albanians are one of the major gangs).

* DrunkDriver: The drinking mini-game usually results in this. Well, not always the "driver" part, if you prefer, maybe due to your conscience, or maybe because you gain one wanted level when you pass by any police unit while driving drunk. Or maybe because it's really hard to drive drunk, and even with this being a video game you crash so much that you're likely to kill yourself or your companion. The game doesn't help by making walking (and, therefore, getting into a hailed taxi cab) virtually impossible.

* TheLancer: Over the course of the story, three characters could be considered to be Niko's Lancer: Roman, Little Jacob, and Packie. All three help Niko through Liberty City and are a close ally to him through his journey, and all three provide emotional support at times when he needs it.

* BookEnds: The game begins with Niko getting off a boat named "Platypus". During the mission A Dish Served Cold, you revisit that boat, [[spoiler: now being used as part of a drug deal that Dimitri and Pegorino have set up.]]

** Some pedestrians you can find around the game are effeminately dressed men who wear bright pink or purple and use the female pedestrian set animations (including the ''screams'').


Added DiffLines:

** This can happen if you hit into another cars rear at a high speed - The cars rear will light up in flames and the driver will come out in flames. Most of the time they'll survive, but the car wont.

*** This could a surprising case of ArtrificialBrilliance in this game as they might be trying to knock you over after you've opened their door for a longer period of time than you would've been if they drove forward.

He says that Yusuf and he are brothers, and they are from the same part of the world, saying, "Shit, we might be cousins." Niko corrects him by saying that Dubai isn't in Africa.
