The DeadDodo from GTA III
DT-boyAdded by DT-boy

The Dead Dodo is the full-winged NPC Dodo that flies high above the ground in Grand Theft Auto III, and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

DescriptionEdit

The Dead Dodo is essentially an unobtainable version of the regular Dodo. It has a slightly darker skin texture in contrast to its controllable counterpart, along with flashing white and red strobe lights. Shooting the plane down can result in a three-star wanted level, but can escalate into a four-star wanted level upon explosion. The plane is in no way solid, so if the player somehow manages to reach its set height, they will just phase right through it. This remains the same in the missions. It is only solid to weapons. Despite it being unobtainable, it can be set on fire. Spawning through third-party trainers, such as the garage editor will crash the game upon appearing as it is a vehicle that relies only on a path. It also appears in the handling file of Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. In GTA Vice City it can be seen with a banner attached to the tail. The banner differs in the PS2 version and the Xbox and PC versions. In the PS2 version the banner will have the generic newspaper with the SWAT team headline, while in the other two the Zombie Elvis Found! paper can be seen.
