  • Molotov Cocktails have appeared in every GTA game since GTA 2. The name Molotov Cocktail was coined by Finnish soldiers during the World War II. The name is an insulting reference to Soviet foreign minister Vyacheslav Molotov who claimed the Soviets were dropping bread baskets - instead of bombs - upon Finland. The Finns then claimed they were serving a drink to go with the food - and named their petrol bomb Molotov Cocktail.
  • Throughout the GTA series, references to saunas are made. Thomas Stubbs appears in The Lost and Damned sitting in a sauna. Modern sauna culture is originally from Finland, and the word sauna is an ancient Finnish word.
