** Some of the songs playing on the radio, like "It Was A Good Day" by IceCube were released after 1992, which is when the game takes place.

* AnyoneRememberPogs: The radio host of K-DST, Tommy "The Nightmare" Smith, mentions "Whatever happened to Love Fist?" at one point of his show. Love Fist was a fictional band from [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCity Vice City]] that was [[BannedInChina banned in many countries]]. In 1992 (when San Andreas takes place), however, they're all but forgotten (which may also be a reference to how hair metal became DeaderThanDisco in the early 1990s). C.J. meets the band's former manager late in the game; after taking some drugs with The Truth, he wakes up stranded in the desert and needs C.J. to drive him back to civilization.

** Quite a few at ''Driv3r'' and ''True Crime: Streets of LA'', most notably a billboard in Los Santos with "True Grime: Street Cleaners". Also, at the War Memorial in San Fierro, at the top and bottom are tombstones that read "R.I.P Opposition 1997-2004". Also HilariousInHindsight, due to ''[[SaintsRow Saints Row 2]]''.

* AnAesop: Street gang brotherhood sentimentalism doesn't count for much. People you think are your friends will happily sell you out or abandon you if you get in the way of something they want. [[TrueCompanions You'll only find out who your real friends are when you're down.]]

* WhatTheHellTownspeople: The townspeople are bizarrely convinced that the protagonist is a diaper-wearing hobo of some sort. No, really.

* ChekhovsGun: When C.J. asks about his mother's murder, Big Smoke mentions in passing that a Green Sabre was seen at the scene of the shooting. A green Sabre shows up in a later mission [[spoiler:when C.J. finds out that Smoke and Ryder are working with C.R.A.S.H. and the Ballas]].

* ForgotTheDisability: Wu Zi Mu is first met during a car race, with TheReveal that he's blind coming as a surprise to CJ. There are a few scenes where the joke is that he's blind (running into a wall or shooting randomly) and a few where other people forget about it, such as the heist planning scenes.
