==Easter Eggs==
*In the mission [[Prologue]], underneath the train bridge the gang passes in the SUV, there is a frozen creek. Frozen under the ice is an [[Aliens|alien]].
+
*The name of Trevor Phillips' business, TPI Enterprises, is an Australian company that processes opium poppies, as can be seen [http://www.tpienterprises.com here].
[[File:Luden_alien.jpg|thumb|238px|The alien frozen in ice under the bridge in Ludendorff, North Yankton.]]
+
*Near the O'Neils' ranch, a yellow-green bumper (probably a 1st-gen [[Cavalcade]]) is seen in a barn with a 2008 [[Liberty City (HD Universe)|Liberty City]] [[License Plate|license plate]] - a reference to ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]''.
*In the mission [[Predator (mission)|Predator]], [[Michael De Santa|Michael]] must use a sniper rifle fitted with a thermal scope to find the [[O'Neil Brothers]] in the woods at night. If the player zooms in on the thermal heat dot on the bottom right, it appears to be a [[w:c:gta-myths:Bigfoot|Bigfoot]] standing still. Shooting it does nothing and it abruptly disappears after a few seconds.
+
*If you call the [[Phone Numbers|number]] 1039-555-284 on the cellphone (you will need to wait a longer time than normal) you will hear a song that loops.
*Multiples [[UFOs]] can be seen, most of them only after 100% completion is obtained. 3 are located somewhere in the sky and one off the northern coast of [[Paleto]], underwater, there is a large sunken flying saucer with sea plants growing on it. It can be reached via [[Submarine]].
+
*In [[Ludendorff]], [[North Yankton]], underneath the train bridge the gang passes in [[Prologue]], there is a frozen creek. Frozen under the ice is an [[Aliens|alien]].
*In [[Vinewood Hills (GTA V)|Vinewood Hills]], there is a juice stand with a big orange ball attached to the top. Shooting or walking into this ball will cause it to detach and roll off down the hill.
+
[[File:Luden alien.jpg|thumb|238px|The alien frozen in ice under the bridge in [[Ludendorff]], North Yankton.]]
*Between 23:00 and 0:00, a [[Jolene Cranley-Evans|female ghost]] appears on the eastern peak of [[Mount Gordo]]. The ghost doesn't move or take damage, and will not react to the player being present or shooting it. While the ghost is present, the word "JOCK" is written in blood on the rock where the ghost stands. The ghost fades away if the player gets too close, and the bloody writing will disappear. Investigating online reveals that the ghost is [[Jock Cranley]]'s wife, possibly murdered by him.
+
*In the mission [[Predator (mission)|Predator]], [[Michael De Santa|Michael]] must use a sniper rifle fitted with a thermal scope to find the [[O'Neil Brothers|O'Neil brothers]] in the woods at night. If the player zooms in on the thermal heat dot on the bottom right, it appears to be [[w:c:gta-myths:Bigfoot|Bigfoot]] standing still. Shooting it does nothing and it abruptly disappears after a few seconds.
*When using a computer, the mouse cursor has its middle finger pointing up, instead of its index finger, appearing to give the player the finger.
+
[[File:CaliforniaPlate-GTAV.jpg|thumb|200px|Note the California license plate.]]
*The passenger jets that take off and land are actually vehicles, if the player follows one as it lands and waits until it stops, they can then enter and fly it; however it is not storable in any hangar and there are no getting in/out animations. The in-game name is just "Jet". Because they are accessable vehicles, they can be destroyed too. A jet takes about 3-5 hits from the [[Rhino|Rhino Tank]] cannon before it loses its wings and explodes. If there is still a NPC-pilot in the jet while the player is shooting it, the player will get a 3-star wanted-level instead of the 1-star wanted level for killing a pedestrian which means that the game maybe counts the attack on the plane actually as a terrorist activity.
+
*There is a wrecked car with a California license plate.
*If you access your phone in game and dial 948-555-0100, you will hear the dial up internet sound. This is also the number you call for [[ZiT]] in GTA IV. The same will happen if the player dials any cheat codes from ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]] ''and'' [[Episodes from Liberty City]].''
+
*Multiple [[UFOs]] can be seen, most of them only after 100% completion is obtained. Three appear in the sky (sometimes only under certain circumstances). One can always be found off the northern coast of [[Paleto Bay]], underwater, with sea plants growing on it.
*Once you have unlocked access to the [[Submarine]], you can explore the seabed and discover a crashed US Air jet, the location of the jet is north-east from the peninsula in Paleto Forest, somewhat close to the parachute jump activity.
+
*In [[Vinewood Hills]], there is a juice stand with a big orange ball attached to the top. Shooting or walking into this ball will cause it to detach and roll off down the hill. Similar juice stands can be found at the northwest corner of [[East Joshua Road]] and [[Route 13]] ([[Senora Freeway]]) in [[Grapeseed]], and in the [[San Chianski Mountain Range]].
*By using the submarine, you can find the famous 'Hatch' from the TV series [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lost_(TV_series) Lost], which is located to the far East of the map, over the coast near the San Chianski Mountain Range. The Hatch cannot be approached either by submarine nor driving, as the protagonist (all three) will get crus[[File:79e1585a5ed820fa41a92e1f30bdc213.png|thumb|The secret markings on the Collector's Edition map.]]hed.
+
*At the [[Yellow Jack Inn]], there are bloody footsteps around the 8 ball pool table in the back. This is a possible reference to the serial killer [[Merle Abrahams]] and his obsession with the number '8'.
*With the Collector's Edition of GTA V, use a black light/UV light over the map of Los Santos, Blaine County and the back of the map. Markings, map legends, secrets and text can be found over the map. Most of the things that appear are pointing towards the existence of [[UFO]]s. Three of the collectible Space Ship Parts are also shown in the map. A full video regarding this easter egg can be seen [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrSUUacykcM here].
+
*Between 23:00 and 0:00, a [[Jolene Cranley-Evans|female ghost]] appears on the eastern peak of [[Mount Gordo]]. The ghost doesn't move, and will not react to the player being present or shooting it. The ghost fades away if the player gets too close, and reappears when the player moves away. During the time the ghost is present, the word "JOCK" appears written in blood on the rocks under the ghost. Investigating online reveals that the ghost is [[Jock Cranley]]'s wife.
*In Franklin's Vinewood house, if you look in the far right corner next to his bed, behind the fan, you will find his "special stash."
+
*If you access your phone in game and dial 948-555-0100, you will hear the dial-up internet sound. This is the same number for [[ZiT]] in GTA IV. The same will happen if the player dials any cheat codes from GTA IV and Episodes from Liberty City.
  +
*Once you have unlocked access to the [[Submersible]], you can explore the seabed and discover a crashed [[Jet|jet airplane]], north-east of the peninsula in [[Paleto Forest]], somewhat close to the parachute jump activity. Another sunken jet can be found just south of the [[Murrieta Oil Field]].
  +
*By using the [[Submersible|submersible]], you can find the famous 'hatch' from the TV series [[wp:Lost (TV series)|Lost]], which is located to the far east of the map, over the coast near the [[San Chianski Mountain Range]]. You can not get too close to the hatch by submersible nor diving, as the player/submerisble will be crushed.

  +
*If you go to the hatch, you'll hear someone knocking on the other side. This is a message in morse code which was translated by members of GTA Forums into "Hey you never call, how'd you fancy going bowling?". This is a reference to [[Roman Bellic]].

*On the most recent [[State of San Andreas|San Andreas]] [[License Plate|license plates]], the month-of-manufacture sticker says 'MAY'.

It could also, albeit less likely be a nod to the Houser brothers' birth month.

Michael De Santa seems to be loosely based on the film's main character, Neil McCauley, as both are seasoned bank robbers and leaders of crews; in fact, Michael's default gray suit is virtually identical to one that McCauley wears prominently during the film. Furthermore, the [[Blitz Play|armored car heist]] in the game is an almost exact recreation of the opening sequence of the film. [[Devin Weston]]'s habit of calling people "slick" is apparently another reference to ''Heat'', in which the character Michael Ceritto is explicitly said to constantly refer to people using the term "slick".

This page holds information regarding secrets and easter eggs in Grand Theft Auto V.

Easter EggsEdit

  • The name of Trevor Phillips' business, TPI Enterprises, is an Australian company that processes opium poppies, as can be seen here.
  • Near the O'Neils' ranch, a yellow-green bumper (probably a 1st-gen Cavalcade) is seen in a barn with a 2008 Liberty City license plate - a reference to Grand Theft Auto IV.
  • If you call the number 1039-555-284 on the cellphone (you will need to wait a longer time than normal) you will hear a song that loops.
  • In Ludendorff, North Yankton, underneath the train bridge the gang passes in Prologue, there is a frozen creek. Frozen under the ice is an alien.

  • In the mission Predator, Michael must use a sniper rifle fitted with a thermal scope to find the O'Neil brothers in the woods at night. If the player zooms in on the thermal heat dot on the bottom right, it appears to be Bigfoot standing still. Shooting it does nothing and it abruptly disappears after a few seconds.
CaliforniaPlate-GTAV
Note the California license plate.

Also, you can make Michael De Santa look almost exactly like the protagonist from that film.
