The Cane is one of the many melee weapons in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Also, although specifically listed as a gift by the game's system files (occupying the Other slot along with weapons such as the flowers), the cane cannot be given to anyone, and cannot be used as anything more than an accessory or a weapon. The cane also appears in Grand Theft Auto III, in cutscenes only when Asuka Kasen is seen torturing Miguel during a couple of the final missions of the game. A similar weapon called the Gaff Hook appears in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. The cane is the most common melee weapon found in GTA San Andreas, with as many as 17 spawning locations.
