* KilledOffForReal: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] in the Heists. Once a heist has officially started, if any member of the crew gets killed, he does not get to continue on with the Heist and gets no payment. This is further set up by having the crew member's audio muted, him not interacting or interfering with the surviving members in-game, and the footage mainly focused on the remaining crew members,[[labelnote:*]]or, starting with "Ray's Heist", that of a "Ghost" as emphasized via the name overlay[[/labelnote]] all for the remainder of the Heist. So far, the [[SoleSurvivor last surviving members]] of each Heist have been as followed:

From "The Lazer Heist" onwards, the trope is partially subverted, as anybody who dies during the heist itself will appear again heavily bandaged in a live-action segment when the heist is over. So far, the [[SoleSurvivor last surviving members]] of each Heist have been as followed:

Added DiffLines:

** During "The Lazer Job" Ryan decides to fly the laser close to the ground because it has a faulty engine. [[spoiler: Which later inevitably shows why all those "fly low to avoid detection" plots in media are super dangerous. The plane stalls out and Ryan has seconds to react before it hits a pole and explodes. He didn't make it.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AttackAttackAttack: Geoff's mentality in "The Lazer Job", as he was asked to cause a ruckus. [[spoiler:This involves going shirtless and wielding a baseball bat... [[TooDumbToLive against the military]].]]


Added DiffLines:

** "The Lazer Job": [[spoiler:First attempt: Geoff gets shot by the military since he refused to wear armor or use anything aside from a baseball bat; Gavin runs his jet straight through Michael on his way to blowing up himself; Ryan's jet dies on him and crashes, and Jeremy accidentally flattens Jack with his jetpack. Second attempt: Jack dies when the chopper is shot down after it got tethered to the ground by the rappel line, and despite surviving the crash Geoff is shot soon after; Gavin crashes his jet at the tunnel thanks to AI drivers spawning behind the roadblock; Michael gets shot as he tries to get a new jet, and Jeremy gets spooked by cops and crashes his jet into the tunnel entrance, leaving Ryan to escape to Mexico.]]


Added DiffLines:

* RunForTheBorder: [[spoiler:After the second failure of "The Lazer Job", Ryan flees to Mexico.]]


Added DiffLines:

*** At the end of "The Lazer Job" Gavin suggests that the crew have fallen victim to this, as they haven't done a heist in a while, and that they should work their way back up from smaller jobs.


Added DiffLines:

** "The Lazer Job" was attempted twice. [[spoiler:The first attempt fell apart when Gavin crashed his jet through Michael. The second attempt got hit by a bug and a game quirk - Jack and Geoff attempted to leave in their helicopter, but the rappel line glitched out and essentially tethered the chopper to the floor, resulting in a crash, their deaths, and the subsequent despawning of their wedge vehicles, and though Michael and Jeremy created a successful roadblock at one end of the tunnel, AI drivers were spawning behind them and blocked Gavin's approach.]]


** Later on Michael, Ryan, Gavin and Jeremy attempted the hardest challenge in GTA, the Criminal Masterminds Challenge, which is to complete all the heists in order on hard difficulty with no deaths. [[spoiler:Even though they had to "bumcheese" it a couple times, they ''[[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome actually made it]]''.]]

* LettingTheAirOutOfTheBand: "Slippery Corner" was supposed to be a Tales-from-the-Internet type Let's Play, investigating the recorded phenomenon of AI drivers seemingly losing control out of nowhere on one particular road corner. [[spoiler:Fifty minutes later, after numerous deliberate accidents, not one driver has driven off the road without being provoked. (Okay, so it happened maybe one time - but only Michael saw it from a distance, as Ryan and Matt, who were standing right next to the road, were looking the other way.)]]

** The original concept for "The Greatest Mugger Who Ever Lived" was for Jeremy to sit in an ultra-fast car, then have a mugger called on him, who would steal the car in the process and for everyone else to hunt the mugger down in Cargobobs. This gets derailed immediately when it turns out that since a recent update, muggers no longer steal personal vehicles, so the moment a target gets into one the mugger gets lost and runs away, and they have to make do with slower stolen vehicles instead.



** Played straight in "Lindsay Wins". Everyone but her is conspiring to ensure that she wins the races. In the second race, [[spoiler: Lindsay intentionally swerves away from the final checkpoint before hitting it, causing Michael and Ryan to overtake her and get themselves disqualified from the secondary competition (who does the best aside from Lindsay)]]

** Any race in which Lindsay manages to reach the finish line. "Lindsay Wins" was designed for this purpose, but in other races, actually finishing inspires disbelief followed by sincere congratulations from her coworkers.



** A lot of Let's Play ideas involve the Los Santos airport, so many that even the Hunters themselves have started referring to them as 'airport screw-around' videos.

** When somebody sticks up for Gavin when he's mugged for the umpteenth time in a video, it's a fairly sure bet that that person just wants the others to back off so they can have a chance to mug him.

Added DiffLines:

** One could argue that "Lindsay Wins" is an example of this. Given that Lindsay had major issues even ''finishing'' a race in [=GTA=] prior to it, the fact that everyone else had to co-ordinate in order to ensure that she won a race could be seen as a challenge.

Added DiffLines:

** This was the entire point of "Lindsay Wins", a video entirely dedicated to making sure Lindsay broke her racing losing streak.


** To "Austin Powers" a vehicle, aircraft, or seacraft is to flip it over or get it impressively stuck and unusuable.
