* [[JerkassWoobie Trevor]] [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds in general]], really. Think about his backstory for a while: implied abuse of an unspecified sort from his father, implied emotional and sexual abuse by his mother, the above-mentioned abandonment issues, loses his best friend first to a stripper and then to a bullet, finds out that friend has been alive and living in San Andreas, their friendship frays and tears throughout the course of the game, and in [[spoiler: 2 of 3 possible endings, he ends up either KilledOffForReal or back where he started with Michael really dead this time. Of course you can pick the GoldenEnding, too, but that's the only ending that's not a bummer for Trevor (other than the fact that he's now without a ride since Michael and Franklin drove off, and they'd just pushed the car he arrived in off a cliff).]]. Still, yikes. No wonder he became an AxCrazy meth addict/dealer and black market weapons dealer.

** Subjective Tear Jerker, but there's a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iS8Ge5tZNxA Youtube video]](Note: Spoilers in the video) that features all of the post-game conversations the protagonists can have with [=NPCs=] and each other. One spot in the video shows the part where [[spoiler: Franklin calmly makes peace with Tanisha getting married to her doctor fiancee the next day, hangs up the phone, ''then drives his car straight into the fucking ocean'' before cutting to black.]] It was probably supposed to be PlayedForLaughs and it's non-canon, but it can also come off as an incredibly depressing scenario where the usually logical Franklin has been DrivenToSuicide despite all of his newfound wealth and success.
** As noted in the Trivia section, [[spoiler:Ending C was originally supposed to be a "Kill Franklin," ending, with Lamar taking Frank out. There are no specifics available as to how the scenario would play out, leaving Lamar's motivations, any possible heated exchanges and Frank's ultimate demise to fans imaginations.]]

* When the ending credits roll after you complete final mission, it might not be sad unless you realized ''this is the last GTA game for Main/PlayStation3''. If you are one of those who played GTA V between 2013 and 2014 (GTA V's first years, no less), you will probably feel nostalgic and a little depressed when you see the ending credits again, especially if you played it at a very young age.

* It's played for laughs, but when Trevor talks about how he joined the Air Force, he calls the person who grounded him a "witch". You get the feeling he honestly wanted to stay in the Air Force and that he would have been a great pilot for his country, and that he still feels some hidden sadness and anger that he lost his one chance at a life of glory and honor.
