* BlackMarket: You can eventually become a member of the black market as either a CEO or as a Motorcycle Club President. The products that you can sell range from hard drugs, to counterfeit goods, to high-end cars. If done correctly, this can be quite lucrative.

Added DiffLines:

* ConspicuousConsumption: Online is ''built'' around this trope. From megayachts to gold jet-planes to high-rise offices to being able to store up to 130 [[CoolCar personal vehicles]], [[note]] 10 of these must be motorcycles [[/note]] players can expect to spend quite a bit of money.


Added DiffLines:

* RiceBurner: Many vehicles you are tasked with retrieving in the Import/Export missions have... less than tasteful modifications applied to them.
** Of course, players themselves can invoke this trope as well. You want a chrome Adder with pink dollar rims and green neon? There is absolutely nothing stopping you.

* DiscOneNuke: The armored Kuruma car in GTA Online is a defensive form of this trope, and an ideal choice if you are getting tired with 12 year olds gunning you down. Unlocked during the very first heist mission string, it features armor plated body panels and windows that offer near-total protection from bullets, making nearly every mission vastly easier to complete because players can simply turtle inside the vehicle while shooting out of its window slits. While the $525,000 price tag is hefty, players who preordered the game and received a huge bonus cash grant were able to immediately afford it and a cheap safehouse to put it in. The Insurgent, which is like the armored Karuma, but with the ability to survive a few rockets, can be bought after unlocking it from a certain heist. An update made the Insurgent available to purchase right away without having to beat the heist and its price tag is around $600,000, which most have gotten by nwo thanks to the double cash events Rockstar periodically holds.

** The hydra is a fighter jet the player can own, which already makes it a must have. However with its fast speed and VTOL capabilities its not uncommon to see people use them to pick up groceries at the convenience store and then rob said convenience store.
