A marijuana-legalization activist who cheerfully hands out homegrown samples.
- Mushroom Samba: Whenever he offers one of the characters a hit of his joint, expect them to experience hallucinations of being attacked by monsters, with the exception of Franklin, who smokes so regularly that he's used to it. Barry apparently doesn't see this as an unusual side-effect.
- Properly Paranoid: He is, as it turns out, not entirely off-base in his ranting about the cops being out to stop his activism; Franklin, at least, will get a wanted level if he hangs around him for too long or takes the wrong route to his apartment after picking up a stash.
- The Stoner: Such a stoner that he's trying to stage a "Smoke-In" at city hall to promote marijuana-legalization. After Franklin gets Barry all the drugs he asks for in order to stage one, he and his friends get so high off their own stash they completely forget about it.
- Smug Snake: Believes the only people who should have a say in a democratic society are the "smart" ones like him.
- Strawman Political: Specifically, a Take That! at pro-marijuana activists.
A fitness obsessed woman pushing 40 (39 for the record, and, no she doesn't care she's still single at her age. Quit asking.) who is filled with immense self-loathing, and vents it by challenging guys to races if she so much as thinks that they're looking at her funny.
- Abhorrent Admirer: Unsurprisingly, she is disgusted when Trevor professes his love to her.
- Amazonian Beauty: Played with. She's certainly muscular, and she accuses every man she meets of checking her out, even when we know they weren't. On the other hand, Trevor falls madly in love with her, but more for her attitude than her body. And on the other, other hand, while Franklin refers to her as thinner than he'd like, he says she's "A'ight." And on the other, other, OTHER hand, she's definitely rocking some midriff and Sensual Spandex there, so if you're into that sort of thing, there's plenty on display.
- Ax-Crazy: Well, she hasn't killed anyone yet (we hope), but she gets extremely pissed off at just the slightest perceived infraction by the protagonists, and hammers them with ear-piercing verbal abuse.
- During her foot race with Michael, she insists they run in the road and take the traffic head-on.
- Bare Your Midriff: Thanks to a sports bra and bicycle shorts.
- Better Than Sex: If she wins her race against Michael she'll yell "Yes! Endorphins! Better than sex!" Which is an odd thing to say, considering sex makes the body produce endorphins too.
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: Possibly with Michael based on her interactions with him, definitely not with Trevor.
- Christmas Cake: No. She's not concerned with her not being married despite her age. Quit asking.
- Competition Freak: Her reaction to each of her meetings with the protagonists is to immediately challenge them to a race. Except for Trevor
- Does Not Like Men: Tends to think of Michael, Franklin and Trevor as Straw Misogynists (or at the very least perverts who want to fuck her senseless), and hurls verbal insults left, right and center while racing them.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: Just about everything pisses her off.
- Hot-Blooded: Her blood is boiling.
- Inferiority Superiority Complex: Her competitiveness and arrogance are strongly implied to be act to cover up the insecurity she feels over being 39 years old, single, and childless.
- Jerk Jock: A rare female example.
- Narcissist: She has such a high opinion of herself that she thinks every man who talks to her is trying to have sex with her. Also, she plans on having children via a surrogate because she's too afraid of getting fat to get pregnant.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: She is an extreme parody of Jillian Michaels, the so called "World's Toughest Trainer."
- No Indoor Voice: Expect her to scream pretty much everything she says.
- Not So Different:
- With Trevor, which is why he falls in love with her.
- Michael also jokingly says that she has a lot in common with his wife (and hilariously, Michael is the only one of the three protagonists that she adds as a friend on LifeInvader).
- Oblivious to Her Own Description/Hypocritical Humor: Here's her response to Trevor's come-ons.
- Straw Feminist: Not as much as Denise Clinton's friends, but her Jerk Jock Competition Freak lifestyle and her extreme verbal dislike of all three male protagonists definitely puts her somewhere in this category.
- Sore Loser: Never takes losing the races well.
- Suspiciously Specific Denial: Her complaints about men checking her out can come across as this, especially given her obvious Christmas Cake status.
- Talking to Themself: When racing, she tends to coach herself out loud. She hurls just as many insults at herself than she does at the protagonists.Mary-Ann: "Push through the burn! Use it! Make it your bitch!"Franklin: "I'm trying!"Mary-Ann: "NOT YOU, IDIOT, ME!!!"
- Unsportsmanlike Gloating: Really rubs in her superiority to the characters when she's racing them — until she loses, that is.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: Strangely, it's implied that she views Michael this way. He's the only character she remains in contact with after their meeting, and she seems to enjoy his snide, self deprecating sense of humor.
A childhood friend of Franklin's. She and her boyfriend JB are crackheads, although she's the more functional of the two. Due to JB being drugged out of his mind most of the time, she guilt-trips Franklin into covering JB's towing shift multiple times.
- Don't You Dare Pity Me!: Snaps at Franklin every time it looks like he's pitying or judging her.
- Drugs Are Bad: Both she and her boyfriend JB are shining examples.
- Everyone Has Standards: Even she thinks Denise is crazy.
- Fan Disservice: A rather tragic example. Franklin is disgusted by her flirtatious gestures towards him, but he helps her because she is so desperate.
- Favors for the Sexy: She thinks she has Franklin under her spell because of her looks. In truth, he's disgusted by her, but is too much of a Nice Guy to abandon her or her boyfriend.
- Functional Addict: BARELY. She at least has the sense to keep from losing their house. She even calls herself this when yelling at JB.
- I Was Quite a Looker: Franklin lusted after her before her drug abuse, implying that she was quite pretty. Obviously, she's become much less attractive over time.
- Not So Different: She tells Franklin he's no better than she is whenever he demands she clean up her act. At one point, after he turns down another offer for sex, she accuses him of "rent-boying" for Michaelnote . Franklin immediately tells her she has the wrong idea, but she doesn't buy it.Franklin: The hood grapevine has really outdone itself this time.
- Old Flame Fizzle: Apparently, Franklin really lusted after her when they were kids, but she never let him get anywhere beyond second base. To this day, she thinks he still carries the same torch for her, but he's severely put off by the person she's become.
- Seven Deadly Sins: She has 6 out of 7 tattooed on her arm. The only one that isn't there is Sloth; Maybe because it's the one that applies most to her?
- Small Name, Big Ego: She thinks she's a lot sexier than she actually is.
- Stop Being Stereotypical: Franklin tries to tell her this several times.
- Streetwalker: One way she supports her habit.
- The Tease: Although it's not intended to be sexy at ALL.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: She and Franklin were good friends when they were kids, though her drug abuse turned her into a desperate and jaded woman who Franklin obviously doesn't want anything to do with.
- Useless Boyfriend: JB, which is why Tonya asks Franklin to tow for him.
- Who Wears Short Shorts?: Wears a denim pair of short-shorts. Her legs may be the most attractive thing about her, if they're all you look at.
A friend of Franklin's who works at the Los Santos Customs near the airport. He challenges Franklin to a number of illegal street races during the night (20:00 to 5:00).
- Badass Driver: Naturally, since he's a street racer.
A paparazzo roaming Vinewood that Franklin encounters, he employs Franklin's help in gathering footage that he can sell. He finally ends up with his own Reality TV show, and spurns Franklin of his pay. In the Next-Gen versions of the game, he signs Franklin up for the Los Santos Tourism Board's Wildlife Photography Challenge.
- Acquired Situational Narcissism: Once he gets his own TV show he acts like Franklin is a little nobody he can just ignore. Depending on the player's choice, this is a huge mistake for Beverly.
- The Cynic: Publicly accuses celebrities of being worthless trash, even as he fawns over them (and himself).
- Digging Yourself Deeper: When he mistakes Franklin during their initial confrontation for closeted rapper Clay "PG" Jackson and suggests he's there for some down-low sex, Franklin cusses him out for not respecting the privacy of others and assuming a black man wouldn't have any business being in Vinewood. What follows is positively cringe-worthy.Franklin: What the fuck, man?! You see a black man walkin' around Vinewood, you think he Clay "PG" Sellout?!
Beverly: Oh! Oh, shit, man, oh... Hey, I'm sorry, dude. I didn't... didn't have my contacts in, y'know... I mean, I love black people. Yeah! Y' know, like, like, I love gangsters! I love, like, gangster rap! "Yo!" "S'up!"
- Gender-Blender Name: A guy named Beverly... all that needs to be said.
- Hypocritical Humor: He calls out an opposing paparazzo named Madison for having a Gender-Blender Name.
- Karmic Death: Choosing to kill him and his crew. Killing them is required to earn a gold medal for the Paparazzo - Reality Check mission.
- Karma Houdini: If Franklin just walks away.
- MadonnaWhore Complex: And how. Disturbingly, one of his quotes while chasing Miranda Cowan is "She's a goddess! She's a whore...", suggesting he doesn't even compartmentalize the two extremes.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: Although his name suggests Perez Hilton, his confrontational photography style and the tabloid TV show he eventually gets are parodies of TMZ.
- Paparazzi: Has a love-hate relationship with celebrities, believing he and the rest of the world has the right to know every single thing about their personal lives.
- Take a Third Option: Instead of killing Beverly or just walking away, Franklin can get back at Beverly by stealing his car.
- Ungrateful Bastard: He refuses to pay Franklin despite all of the work Franklin put in towards helping Beverly get his exclusives.
An adrenaline junkie who Franklin encounters across Los Santos and Blaine County.
- Eccentric Millionaire: He never passes up a chance to mention his bottomless bank account, and damned if he isn't eccentric.
- In Harm's Way: As far as he's concerned, Franklin's a pussy simply because he isn't willing to constantly risk life and limb in ever more extreme ways. Of course, it's Franklin who has the last laugh after Dom jumps off a dam with no parachute; as he puts it, "evolution in action".
- Innocent Bigot: When he accidentally says something racist, he apologizes for it by saying something even MORE racist.
- Jerkass: He is, in general, a bit of a dick to Franklin, believing him to be a pussy. Oh, how wrong he is.
- Jerk Jock: Of the extreme sports variety.
- Some of My Best Friends Are X: Says this to Franklin on his second encounter.
- Sore Loser: He reacts poorly if Franklin comes in ahead of him in some of the encounters.
- Too Dumb to Live:
Franklin: "You dumb idiot."
- When you first encounter him he's just nearly died from a parachuting accident... the "accident" being he forgot to deploy his parachute.
- During his last encounter you find him attempting his "most extreme stunt" yet, which happens to be jumping off a dam with no parachute. The results are predictable.
Omega - real name unknown - is a paranoid hippie who claims to have been abducted by aliens. He commissions Franklin to find the 50 alien spaceship parts scattered across Los Santos and Blaine County, so he can rebuild the alien ship. The "ship" is a BF Dune Buggy, modified with neon lights and a strange, futuristic engine.
Peter Dreyfuss, an aging movie director living in the Vinewood Hills. He had a penchant for heavy drugs and the macabre during the '70s, belittling the actors and actresses who starred in his movies as "harlequins". This attitude came to a head in 1975, when he murdered starlet Leonora Johnson. Franklin goes to confront him after all 50 scraps of his confession letter are found.
- Asshole Victim: If you choose the option to kill him.Franklin: "Say 'Hello' to Leonora, motherfucker."
- Cold-Blooded Torture: He tortured Leonora and kept her alive for a long time to enjoy her suffering.
- Depraved Bisexual: He asks Franklin to suck him off after just meeting him and had sex with Leonora Johnson's body after killing her.
- Dirty Coward: Panics the second Franklin reveals he knows about Dreyfuss's crime and flees when Franklin proves immune to bribery.
- Entitled Bastard: Flat out says that he can do whatever he wants because he's famous. Those are "the rules."
- For the Evulz: The real reason he murdered Leonora Johnson and tormented her parents was just because he could.
- I Love the Dead: See Depraved Bisexual above.
- Laser-Guided Karma: If you choose the option to kill him.
- Mad Artist: He proclaims that he doesn't sleep with younger girls, torture hitchhikers, and eat dogs for fun, but to understand suffering and make better art. He also claims this is why he tortured, mutilated, murdered, and sexually defiled the body of Leonora Johnson before psychologically tormenting her parents by mailing them bits of her body. It should come as a shock to no one that this excuse is a load of bull.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: While he's not based on any one person in particular, it's clear that the character is Rockstar's Take That! towards celebrities who think they're above everyone else and can get away with literally anything. The nature of his crimes, combined with the fact that he's a director who was in his prime in The '70s, specifically brings to mind Roman Polanski and, to a lesser extent, Woody Allen.
- The details of the murder of Lenora Johnson seems to take some inspiration from the murders of Elizabeth Short (the notorious "Black Dahlia" case) and Dorothy Stratton. Dreyfuss is also named similarly to and physically resembles 1970s director Peter Bogdanovich, who was Stratton's lover prior to her murder (although it should be noted that Stratton was murdered by her ex-husband, and Bogdanovich had nothing to do with the crime).
- Rape and Revenge: Should Franklin choose to avenge Leonora by killing him. Subverted if Franklin lets him go.
- Serial Killer: If the claim of torturing hitchhikers is indeed true, than it looks like Leonora wasn't his only victim.
- Small Name, Big Ego: He apparently thinks his rewritten drafts of William Shakespeare's plays have "improved" them.
- Villainous Breakdown: He has one when Franklin confronts him over the death of Leonora Johnson.
A hunter who appears for Franklin after the player reaches 100% Completion. He asks Franklin to help him hunt down the last Bigfoot. After an extensive chase, he finally corners it down... only to find out that the last "Sasquatch" is nothing but a furry who is deeply in-character.
- Call-Back: This isn't the first time a hunter has been after a Sasquatch.
- Canon Welding: Implied, but it's more of a semi-canon in-joke than anything. Keeping a distance from him before starting the mission has him mentioning that he hopes to make his great-granddaddy proud. As said above, he isn't the first Sasquatch hunter.
- Generation Xerox: Although the Red Dead Redemption and HD GTA Universe are different universes, then this is still in ridiculous full effect. He's wearing the same hat, has the same beard, and has the same blind left eye as his great-granddaddy.
- Leaning on the Fourth Wall: He makes a reference to the rumors of a Bigfoot/Sasquatch existing in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, saying that he's after the creature for 9 years.note
- Killed Off for Real: The Golden Peyote Plant hunt in the Enhanced Edition has you eventually finding the hunter's corpse during one of your Sasquatch hallucinations.
- Walking Spoiler
The second wife and widow of late TV personality Frank Mathers. She commissions Michael to collect the 30 pieces of her late husband's sub, to prove that his death was an accident so that she can collect his life insurance. As it turns out, she sabotaged the airlocks on his sub. Michael can either let her leave or kill her.
- Karmic Death: Should she be killed after her quests are finished.
- Karma Houdini: Should Michael let her walk away.
- Til Murder Do Us Part: Got her late husband to take out a large life insurance policy before killing him.
- Ungrateful Bitch: In exchange for all of Michael's help in collecting the sub pieces she gives him a whopping ten dollars... and also a signed photo of her deceased husband.
- Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: GTA Online implies that he has done this, assuming he isn't some kind of god in the first place.
- Church of Happyology
- Con Man: What he really is when it boils down to it. After conning dozens of thousands of dollars out of Michael, getting him to procure expensive sports cars, and making him run five miles in the desert in stupid robes chanting "Kifflom!" repeatedly, he promptly skedaddles off to the Caymans.
- Cult: He runs one.
- Evil Eyebrows: Seriously, just look at that picture. It's a miracle anyone would trust a face lurking under those dark, sinister-looking brows.
- Laser-Guided Karma: Michael can either simply let the chopper containing the money meant to go to Cris fly away, or, if you want to earn a gold medal for the final Epsilon mission, destroy the chopper, kill all Epsilonists at the scene, and make off with a hefty $2.1 million booty, leaving Cris with nothing but empty threats against you over the phone after the mission. Either way you will still get the "Kifflom!" achievement.
- Light Is Not Good: Associated with white and baby blue, but not as holy as he likes to present himself.
- Power Floats: He appears to the Online Protagonist flying and boasting about how much power he now wields.
- They Called Me Mad!: What he says to the Online Protagonist in GTA Online.
- Villainous Breakdown: You can really hear him going livid over the phone after Michael decides to take his "refund" at the end of the Epsilon missions.
A hillbilly resident of Sandy Shores, who is neighbors with Trevor. He runs a hunting business.
- Geeky Turn-On: He admits that his girlfriend "ain't the prettiest, but she can handle a firearm like a Marine."
- Hunter Trapper: He's made a tidy business selling his catch to the hipster culture living in Los Santos.
- Nice Guy:
- To Trevor, at least. He's a jerkass to everyone else; he shoots out his neighbors' satellite dishes, as well as shooting out the tires of ran cars as they drive by.
- That said, most everybody else in Sandy Shores is an Asshole Victim in Cletus' eyes. As he says "half the people in this town would sell their own mother, and half of them already have. Screw 'em!"
- He also tells Trevor via text that he thinks Patricia is a nice woman and that he's happy Trevor has found someone.
- The Pig Pen: Trevor calls "pot and kettle" when Cletus mentions Trevor's "musk".
An overweight woman running a bail bond office from her trailer between Sandy Shores and Grapeseed. She commissions Trevor to work as her bounty hunter.
- Deadpan SnarkerMaude: How've you been?
Trevor: Oh! Simply wonderful! And you?
Maude: (in a deadpan monotone) About the same. Somewhere between joyful and peachy.
- Evil Debt Collector: Runs a bail bond office, and while she herself is affable, she doesn't mind Trevor going full-blown Loan Shark on her targets.
- I Was Quite a Looker: She mentions that she was a cheerleader in her younger days.
- Morality Pet: To Trevor, she is one of the few people Trevor is always nice to. He even wishes her luck when she decides to retire in order to start a family.
Joe and Josef, an idiot redneck and his deluded Russian comrade, respectively, that run their own two-man "civil border patrol group," getting Trevor to help out several times. While they claim to be protecting America from illegal aliens, it's clear that they're just using it as an excuse to harass foreigners.
- Asshole Victim: They sooo had it coming.
- Ax-Crazy: They're considered complete nutjobs by even Trevor himself, who quickly cuts ties with them, regrets his association, and later kills them both.
- Boomerang Bigot: Josef isn't a Latin-American, but he's clearly an immigrant who can't speak a lick of English. In spite of that, he supports Joe's Absolute Xenophobe policy of deporting migrants, and bellows Eagleland phrases (in Russian) without any trace of irony or self-awareness.
- Commie Nazis: Ironically invoked with Josef: he's Russian, but he salutes by raising his arm in a very NON-communist way...
- Fun with Subtitles: Josef says the most Xenophobic (and by design hypocritical) phrases ("I defend this country from multiculturalism!"), and occasionally mixes up his Eagleland-isms with British platitudes ("For king and country!" "God save the Queen!") and the French national motto ("Liberty! Fraternity! Equality!")
- Heteronormative Crusader: Joe implies that his brother used to be homosexual before he sorted him out. Now he is married and has three kids (and he almost never acts out these days).
- Hidden Depths: Josef almost immediately keys in on the fact that Trevor is Canadian, and even considers his usual method of dealing with "multi-culturals". Good thing Trevor doesn't speak Russian. That said, the use of this trope is by no means an indicator of intelligence: Josef is every bit as moronic as his redneck comrade.
- Hypocritical Humor: Joe is an Eagleland Absolute Xenophobe, but is best friends with a clearly Russian man (and one who speaks LESS English than the "illegals" they hassle), while Josef is even more so by being just as xenophobic, in spite of being about as American as Ivan Drago.
- Immigrant Patriotism: A very dark example with Josef. While deep loyalty to one's adopted country is usually an admirable trait in an immigrant, Josef is a jingoistic, xenophobic, hypocritical bigot.
- Jerkass Has a Point: Ironically, jerkass doesn't realize he has a point. Josef disdainfully remarks that the illegal immigrants they chase are hard workers fleeing dire circumstances who come to America looking for a better life for themselves and their families. He also seems completely unaware that these are points usually made in defense of illegal immigrants.
- Karmic Death: After tasing a Mexican landowner off his ATV and "arresting" him, said Mexican sends Trevor out to kill them in revenge. They also end up getting killed shortly after they try to "arrest" an innocent family at their farm, and come close to crossing a Moral Event Horizon by drawing (and potentially using) actual guns instead of tasers.
- Laser-Guided Karma: To get the gold medal for the last mission, you need to zap both of them with the stun gun before killing them. The objective is called "What Comes Around".
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: Joe and Josef come across as pretty goofy all around, and though Trevor really doesn't like them, he helps them a couple of times for money and amusement. Then in the last mission, they round up an entire family of immigrants, pull out real guns, and will murder them if the player doesn't get the Minute Men first.
- Not-So-Well-Intentioned Extremist: They claim to be protecting the United States from potential security risks, but it's obvious that they just want an excuse to harass people they're prejudiced against.
- Politically Incorrect Villain: A pair of racist rednecks who attack anyone they think is an illegal immigrant.
- Psycho Electro: They don't have actual powers, but their weapons of choice are Tasers, and they are quite insane.
- Right-Wing Militia Fanatic: Well duh. Played with regarding Josef, who is a Russian instead of the Corrupt Hick most people associate with these groups.
- Thou Shalt Not Kill: They tell Trevor not to kill the people they're arresting, and give him the Taser to non-lethally take down their targets. Subverted in that they do it so they can legally hassle their immigrant victims and their last mission has them drawing actual guns on the innocent family they were about to arrest, meaning they probably would've violated this one rule if Trevor hadn't shown up to kill them first.
- Those Two Bad Guys: A pair of assholes who are always seen together.
- The Unintelligible: Josef doesn't speak a word of English (and although he understands it, doesn't seem aware nobody else can't understand his Russian — or that he's speaking Russian at all!), but be damned if he isn't a patriot!
An old Mexican farmer who has the misfortune of crossing paths with the Minute Men and Trevor.
- Butt-Monkey: He was tazed and knocked off his ATV by Trevor.
- Cool Old Guy: Standing up to Trevor and ordering him to get rid of the Minute Men without pay makes you one.
- Good Counterpart: He is this to the Minute Men. The Minute Men are a bunch of lunatics who gloat about their heritage and use it as an excuse to harass people for shits and giggles, and pay Trevor to help them and run like cowards when Trevor goes after them. Manuel is a guy who doesn't boast about heritage, is a proud hard-working man, and who doesn't even tremble when Trevor puts a gun to his head, and orders him to do the right thing for free.
- Irony: Manuel is actually an American citizen (also a native-born to be precise) who was mistaken as an illegal immigrant by The Minute Men, yet portrayed as more reasonable and less boastful than them.
- Morality Pet: To Trevor of all people. In that he's one of the few people to make him feel genuinely guilty about his Jerkass behavior.
- Nerves of Steel: Doesn't flinch even when Trevor puts a gun to his head.
- Only Sane Man: One of the few rational, non-criminal characters in the game. He also understands that the Minute Men's patriotism is a crock.
A Realtor who hires Trevor to boost his business after a run of bad luck - namely, by destroying his rival's advertising and teaching the man himself a very physical lesson.
- Bad Liar: Has a very noticeable quaver and stiffness in his voice during the last phone call, signaling that he's about to run to the police.
- Cuckold: Willingly lets Trevor sleep with his (second) wife in exchange for his services, much to the latter's initial shock.
- Karmic Death: Should Trevor kill him.
- Karma Houdini: If Trevor lets him get away.
- Too Dumb to Live: After Trevor helps him out, he tries selling Trevor out to the cops to cover his ass.
A pair of elderly British citizens vacationing in Los Santos, hunting for "Vinewood souvenirs" (a.k.a., a bunch of crap once owned by movie stars). They mistake Trevor for stuntman-turned-politician John "Jock" Cranley, and talk him into helping collect their checklist of "souvenirs".
- Abhorrent Admirer: They're in Los Santos to stalk celebrates. They also have no problem with getting a total stranger to beat up, kill, mug and harass celebrates they "love" on their behalf.
- Affably Evil: They may seem like a couple of quirky but kindly people, but their stalker tendencies alone mean they aren't as harmless as they seem. And that's before you get into their darker sides...
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: They're both clearly not too in touch with reality, mistaking Trevor for a celebrity even after he tells them who he really is, and thinking that an actor they admire wouldn't mind being abducted in their lock-up for a few days.
- Trevor himself considers them to be far more deranged than he is; unlike the Minute Men, however, he's impressed with their commitment to total insanity, and begins to enjoy their company by the end of the mission.
- Collector of the Strange: They're really into celebrity "memorabilia," no matter how disgusting it is. They eventually get Trevor to help them to briefly "collect" a real celebrity.
- Dirty Old Man: It's suggested that they're both rather dirty, but Nigel in particular asks Trevor for a hug, and while pressed against him, informs him that he has a protruding hip. It's not a semi. He also says that Mrs. Thornhill will have him wear a dog collar Trevor has collected in the bedroom, although he (unconvincingly) claims to be joking immediately after.
- Al DiNapoli mentions with horror that both of them apparently did unspeakably creepy things with him while he was held hostage, including "fucked-up parlor games" and performing weird foot fetish stuff on Mrs. Thornhill. Trevor congratulates him for it.
- Evil Old Folks: While their victim Al DiNapoli is hardly an unbiased source, it's implied that the two are neither as harmless or oblivious as they might first appear. If Trevor kills DiNapoli, Nigel is perfectly fine with it, and slyly denies ever having met him at all.
- Hero-Worshipper: Of celebrities. Upon mistaking Trevor for Jock Cranley, they both chant, "We're not worthy!"
- Insistent Terminology: Nigel always refers to his companion as "Mrs. Thornhill" - not just because he's a proper sort of chap, but also because he isn't really "Mr. Thornhill".
- Quintessential British Gentleman: And they're not even married - they just bonded over their shared love of celebrity ephemera and ran away together.
Trevor's mother, who shows up at his trailer after the game is finished. She asks him to steal a van full of painkillers for her. She is implied to have been a hallucination.
- The Cameo: Speculated to be voiced and mocap-ed by actress Geraldine Moffat, the real life mother of Rockstar founders Sam and Dan Houser.
- Dead All Along: Implied to have been a guilt-induced hallucination of Trevor's.
- Knight of Cerebus: Not on her own, but the fact that Trevor seemed fairly sober while hallucinating her indicates his mental health issues are even worse than they appear on the surface.
- Meaningful Name: Not her, but the drugs she asks Trevor to steal. After bringing back home the Deludamol, Trevor finds out that he's been hallucinating his mother.
- My Beloved Smother/Evil Matriarch: Incredibly overbearing and demeaning to Trevor, rubbing his failures in his face. Then she asks him to steal a truckload of drugs...
- Older Than They Look: Appears to be only slightly older than Trevor himself, which either makes her an Absurdly Youthful Mother or indicates that she died long before the game's events.
- Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: Incredibly, her dialect switches between English, Scottish and rural American, all in the same conversation.
- Parental Incest: Implied by Trevor's severe aversion to the word "motherfucker".
