** Deliberately played with, when it comes to Carl's girlfriends. You would expect this game feature to evoke this trope but once Carl starts dating his first girlfriend, Denise Robinson, things turn out quite differently: She will hurl insults at Carl whenever he bumps into her and berate him if does as much as nudge any object with his car. During the "driving dates", on the other hand, if you drive too carefully[[note]] Which is advisable if your driving skill is still somewhat lacking which it is most likely, at this point in the game, unless you've spent hours honing your driving skills on the airstrip which is only accessible through a bit of trickery[[/note]], you will end up "boring her legs shut" and if you neglect her for too long, she will threaten Carl with dating one of his friends instead. And let's not even mention her endless lust for gratuitous drive-by shootings...

* [[RewatchBonus Replay Bonus]]: [[spoiler: Before Big Smoke does his FaceHeelTurn, the game drops several subtle hints at it]]:
** [[spoiler: Big Smoke's house is in Idlewood, which is Balla territory.]]
** [[spoiler: During the Drive Thru mission, Big Smoke is too preoccupied with eating his food to shoot the enemy gang members. At first, it just seems like Smoke is being a FatBastard, but the mission "The Green Sabre" casts his actions in a new light.]]
** [[spoiler: During the "Reuniting the Families" mission, Big Smoke and Ryder leave Sweet and CJ to take on the LSPD by themselves.]]

** In Zero's final mission, you have to face off against Berkley in RC helicopters. Your job is to remove obstructions so Zero can drive his RC to Berkley's base, while Berkley will you his helicopter to drop barrels on the path. However, you can grab a bomb, fly above Berkley's helicopter, and drop it, removing him from the game and significantly reducing the number of obstructions you'll have to deal with.
** Taking over gang territory requires you to pop a few of the relevant gang members on foot to start a war for that territory, then kill several waves of really well-armed gangsters. This is mercifully optional during the first part of the game (and incidentally meaningless), but not during the final part. Fortunately, the game only requires you to make the first few kills on foot. If you have, say, [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill a tank]], there's nothing stopping you from using that.

* EndlessCorridor: Unlike the other GTA games, which stopped players from leaving the designated zone with an InvisibleWall, leaving the island (via boat plane or even swimming) would lead you through an endless zone of sea and sky. You can fly in one direction for an hour straight trying to get to Liberty City; it will also took you an hour to get back to land.
** Subtly lampshaded in that one particular airplane mission happens a significant distance away from the map.
** And after going out a certain distance, you can't get back to land except by crashing or restoring the game.

* ForbiddenZone: Area 69, a military and research compound. Getting past the fence at ground level instantly gives you a 5 star warrant level, and you'll be shot down by missiles or the military's fighter jets if you approach the area by air. There's one mission where you do get the chance to sneak into the facility and see why the area is so heavily guarded; using alien technology, the military created a jet pack that allows the wearer to fly. You get to keep it as well once you complete the mission.

* {{Gayngster}}: OG Loc. You first encounter him fresh off the prison, and he wants to kill his prison boyfriend for spreading rumors about their tryst, though of course he's in complete denial. Instead, you end up killing the boyfriend. OG Loc later does a radio interview where he stresses his macho-ness. Of course, it ''was'' a "prison thing".
** Judging from the dialogue, the relationship seems to be [[PrisonRape not entirely consensual]].
*** It's impossible to know one way or the other, really. Loc isn't admitting any sex took place, let alone whether it was consensual or not. (Except when he slips up and yells "Your ass is mine! Oh, no no no, I didn't mean it like ''that''!") You can judge for yourself by watching [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWzPfH8Hi-8 the mission.]]

* GoodGunsBadGuns: The protagonists allies in the Grove Street Families use the Tec-9 as their submachine gun of choice, while all other gangs in Los Santos use the Micro UZI.

** ''San Andreas'' is also missing the interior for the San Fierro Police Department (which is why you respawn on a nondescript street corner near the building and you can't enter it, unlike the other ones,) presumably because entering it crashed the game or they didn't have time to clean up the programming for release, and hospital interiors as well. There is also text data for a skateboard hidden in the game's main files as well (which is why Los Santos has a skatepark.) The skateboard was scrapped for the presumably much easier to program and animate bicycles.
** Don't forget the normally-inaccessible Andromada plane, tons of building interiors, and a substantial chunk of Liberty City.

** Don't forget the normally-inaccessible The Andromada plane, tons of building interiors, plane and the FBI truck are two vehicles that can't be obtained by the player in a substantial chunk normal gameplay, but everything indicates that it originally could, as both are fully functional when accessed with a mod or trainer. The andromada can still be seen in game in a mission and flying in the sky sometimes, but the FBI truck never appears in normal conditions.
** Some missions got cut during development, including one involving rescuing The Truth after he stole the green goo.
** The exterior
of Liberty City.City is only used in a cutscene and can't be acessed normally. But, when acessing it through a glitch or mod, the player can see that it is much bigger than it appears (tough incomplete) and is supossed to take a larger role in the mission Saint Mark's Bistro.

* BritishRockstar: You meet up with two characters associated with a band who are largely parodies of this trope (though their style leans more towards pre-Britpop, like TheStoneRoses, Music/{{Suede}} and Music/HappyMondays). The lead singer's name is [[Music/TheBeatles Maccer]] (he even wears a Reni hat), and is voiced by Happy Mondays vocalist Shaun Ryder.
