Trivia: There is a secret boss fight that can be unlocked. This can be only unlocked if the player has 100% completed the game, completed the Strangers and Freaks mission The Last One, and collected all 27 peyote plants, as well as collected all 7 golden peyotes which can be found during either foggy or snowy weather. Once all of these requirements have been achieved, the player will then enter a hallucination where they become Bigfoot, and can engage in combat with a beast.

Trivia: If the player goes to a certain cliffside overlooking the El Gordo Lighthouse at 11pm, the ghost of Jolene Cranley-Evans, the murdered wife of politician Jock Cranley can be seen. The story is that she was pushed off the cliff by her husband, but her death was later declared as accidental. The name "Jock" can be seen written in blood on the rock Jolene hovers over, accusing him of killing her. The ghost will disappear if the player approaches it, but can be viewed through a sniper rifle scope.

Trivia: Marriage Counselling: When Michael catches his wife sleeping with the tennis coach, he chases him to what he believes is the tennis coach's house, unaware that it actually belongs to Martin Madrazo's girlfriend. Michael then attaches a rope to the foundation poles of the house and drives away, causing the house to collapse. This is a reference to a scene from Lethal Weapon 2, in which Riggs tears down a house using the exact same method.

Trivia: During a specific time in the day, players can come across a scenario on a cliff in which a car is parked near the edge, and police cars are parked not far behind, cornering the car. The car will then drive off the edge of the cliff and explode when landing. This is a reference to the ending scene of Thelma and Louise, in which the exact same scenario plays out. The two main characters are cornered by police and drive off the edge of a cliff to escape them.

Trivia: In the rural outback area of Los Santos, players can stumble across a scenario in which numerous trucks are parked in a circle, filled with dead bodies and injured survivors in a drug deal gone wrong. The player can then take the money from the deal, but if they do so, two trucks will chase after them and start shooting. This is a reference to the movie No Country for Old Men, in which Llewelyn Moss comes across a drug deal gone wrong, and takes a briefcase of money used for the drug deal and is then pursued afterwards.

Other mistake: Scouting the Port: Just after removing the portrait of Floyd's girlfriend on the wall, Trevor takes out a marker pen and starts drawing the heist plan with only that. The wall is then shown and a series of photographs, a classified document and strips of duct tape are visible on the wall with the drawings. The problem is, Trevor only had a marker pen on his hands. He was never shown sticking any of these items onto the wall.

Revealing mistake: Casing the Jewel Store: When Michael and Lester return to the garment factory after taking pictures of the jewellery store, there is a shot from the side of the building that pans from the car around to the building. When the shot is panning around to the building, there are some cardboard boxes and other objects shown next to the building that are suddenly animated partway into the shot. They just appear to pop-up onscreen out of nowhere.

Continuity mistake: Paleto Score Setup: When Michael, Trevor and Lester return to Trevor's office after surveying the bank, Trevor takes a bowl of stew out from his fridge with his left hand, but when he goes to put the bowl in the microwave, the bowl is in his right hand.

Other mistake: Deep Inside: Franklin and Devin Weston are talking in the garage, and Lamar enters whilst holding his phone in his hand, observing the car. Lamar never uses his phone when talking to Franklin and Devin, but the menu screen on his phone remains on for the entire scene and never changes. There is no reason for the screen to be on since Lamar is not using it, nor does the screen ever goes into auto lock, despite Lamar not touching the screen.

Trivia: Blitz Play: The heist mission bears many similarities to the opening heist scene from the movie Heat. To make sure the truck stops, Franklin rams into the truck, flipping it over onto its side, the same action that is done in Heat. An explosive is planted on the back door to blow the doors open, also done in Heat. They take the men inside the truck hostage and one of them says they have gone deaf due to the explosion, which also happens in Heat. Additionally, Franklin, Michael and Trevor all wear stylised masks to disguise themselves during the heist, just like in Heat, where the heist team wear hockey masks to disguise themselves.

Revealing mistake: The Merryweather Heist (Freighter Approach): When Michael goes inside the freighter to plant the explosive, he closes the door behind him, but his hand does not touch the door. He just appears to be mining the actions of pulling the handle and the door closes on its own.

Trivia: Father/Son: When Franklin is on the boat whilst it is being driven on the freeway, he throws the people on it off the boat and onto the road. One of the people who is thrown off does a Wilhelm scream when he is thrown.

Revealing mistake: In the opening establishing shots of Los Santos, there is a shot on the beach showing a woman lying down, and a dog running past her. In the shot, many objects in the background are suddenly animated partway into the shot, making it look as if they appeared onscreen out of nowhere.

Audio problem: Parenting 101: Once Michael reaches the car Jimmy is being kidnapped in, Michael receives a call from Jimmy's phone and the kidnapper is heard asking Jimmy who the man chasing them is. Jimmy is then heard yelling at the kidnappers, telling them it is his dad, but Jimmy is banging on the rear windscreen yelling at his dad and isn't even talking with the kidnappers.

Bug: Go to Franklin's first house in the neighbourhood and have Franklin place a sticky bomb anywhere on the walls or ceiling in the hallway and place the bomb by throwing it from the front door. After the explosive is thrown and lands on the wall, a slight glitch in the animation occurs. The entire explosive won't actually be visible on the wall. No matter where the shot is angled at, the beeping red light on top of the explosive will always be visible, however the rest of the explosive won't actually be in sight. If the angle of the shot is rotated, the explosive will appear from different views, but still a glitch nonetheless.

Trivia: When the last heist is unlocked and you choose to do the subtle option, the mission carries out very similarly to the Italian Job. You have to modify cars to hold the required amount of weight in gold just like the movie. The difference is that instead of modifying Mini Coopers, you modify Bravado Gauntlets. Also towards the end of the heist, you have to drive the cars into trailers of semi trucks just like the movie.
