Gangs are a fundamental part in the stories of most Grand Theft Auto games. The protagonist will work for or against them at certain points in the story. Hostile gangs are often quite aggressive and will likely attack the player if provoked. Friendly gangs can sometimes offer assistance during missions, especially in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Trivia

  • In GTA IV's multiplayer races, the player cannot choose gang colors for any of the cars they are able to select.
  • In GTA: San Andreas, if gang members hear gunshots, they will occasionally fire at the shooter, including non-gang members. (Sometimes they will either ignore the gunshots or run away like any pedestrian)
