John Marston is a character originating from Red Dead Redemption, an open world game developed by Rockstar Games.


He makes a cameo as an optional parent character model of the player in Grand Theft Auto Online.

John Marston can be selected as a parent in Grand Theft Auto Online, but only if the player is a member of the Rockstar Games Social Club and has their Xbox Live gamertag/PSN username linked.


  • He makes a cameo in Grand Theft Auto V in a commercial for the beer Pißwasser riding his horse.
  • The ability to have Marston as a parent in the online character creator is somewhat of an anachronism on Rockstar's part given that he died over a hundred years prior to the events of GTA Online and the online player cannot be over 45 years old. He could more correctly have been provided as a grandparent but the genealogy-based creator method would have diluted his genetic characteristics too much to be effective.
