I have wondered this for a while, and it's not on the wiki, so which gang portrays the real gang? I kind of think that the families are the bloods, because both words kind of mean a brother-like relationship.

I feel like the Ballas are the Bloods, and the Families are the Crips. I dunno, I just feel like a Bloods-related gang wouldn't wear Green. They wouldn't wear Purple either since that's a Crip set color (Grape St.) but I like the Families more.

The in game gangs rock the real life gangs war colors

ballas rock purple which is crips color

And green is the bloods color

there actually the gangs war colors not just random colors picked to represent them

Latin king doesn't have a war color that's why vagos are just yellow

grove st represents a real block where some of the first bloods where believed to come from

I'm not quite sure. I'd have to join one of those gangs to find out.

I thought blue is crips and bloods is red.

Bloods is red

Crips is blue

But Both gangs have alternative colors called they're war colors

Bloods use green cause it represents money

I'm not sure why crips use purple though

Vagos aren't inspired on Latin Kings, but the Spanish Lords from GTA IV were. Vagos in GTA V are conformed by several Hispanic nationalities, but in GTA San Andreas they were supposed to be Mara Salvatrucha or 18th Street. So Vagos in GTA V universe becomes a made up gang by R*, as Mara Bunta Grande are obviosuly Mara Salvatrucha and the Varrio Aztecas are supposed to be an exclusively Mexican street gang.

 

Latin Kings are mostly Puerto Rican, and you can't find Puerto Ricans in LA, at least not in gangs, but you find them on NY.

Latin kings can contain anyone Latin

Even white Italians as they are Latin

Anyone Latin can join

it's a global gang not just in ny

it's not all puerto Rican

Gta San Andreas was based in 90s and there were kings in la back then

not sure about now tho

And the gangs just carry over from that game

Play San Andreas or watch any R* interviews.
They clearly state the Ballas are based on the Bloods & the Orange Grove/Grove Street Families (now just "families") are based on the crips. The reason so being that the Ballas saw a huge rise in-game akin to what happened to the Bloods nationwide. However, they made the "crips"-inspired gang win in the end because a lot of their research on gangbanging subculture came from crip members.

The colors are ironically reversed (green being more Blood related & vice versa) so R* could show they had no actual favoritism to any gang.

As for the Aztecas/LS Vagos
I don't actually remember this one quite as well, but it seems they represent "La eMe" : La Mafia Mexicana (The Mexican Mob), specifically "The Sureños"....and Their rivals, the "Nuestra Familia" (Our Family)

Edit: ....although the NS is more based on northern california gangs, linikng them more to the San Fierro Rifa.
But I guess R* decided they were "loosely basing", not "historically portraying".


The Triads & The Mob are pretty self-explanatory....although it's funny R* has to invent gang names for US criminal organizations yet calls over-seas born gangs as they are.

In San Andreas, it was very obvious that Families were bloods and Ballas were crips. Families used blood gang signs, Ballas threw up crip gang signs.

For GTA V I would assume it hasn't changed, but...I dunno, it could have.

Because R* did not want to appear to show favoritism to any criminal gang at all.

 

The "Crips"-inspired gang wins...using Blood related colors....R*'s way of neutralizing their position.

Bloods

Founded Mid-1972

Founding location Los Angeles, California, United States

Years active 1972present

Pulled straight from the web google it and the persons above mes right to ballas trew up c's in San Andreas they are most defidently not blood

 

The origin of the Bloods and their rivalry with the Crips dates to the 1970s, where the Pirus street gang, originally a set, or faction, of the Crips,[7] broke off during an internal gang war, and allied with other smaller gangs to found the gang that would eventually become known as the Bloods

 

So technically speaking they started on the same block

They could even be another set of the same gang.

Bloods graffiti might also include the word Piru which refers to the fact that the first known Bloods gang was formed by individuals from Piru Street in Compton, California

And they arnt the same gang

bloods and crips are rivals

As are the families and ballas

I don't think either are either but that both are both. If they were going to be stupid enough to support a blood-hungry criminal faction over the hated and equally blood-hungry sister faction, they gang colours would be red and blue.

 

Edit: some back-reading shows I could be totally wrong. Jury's out.

How about some input from someone who didn't use a wiki (or maybe someone who should have in your case). The Latin kings to my knowledge have no presence in NY as they're primarily a Chicago-Midwest gang. Sure, there's probably some wannabe, false flagging asses in other states like so often it is, but I think the Vagos are more based on (if any group) whatever the Latin gang is with a presence in California. Latin Kings are predominantly Hispanic, but there are a handful of blacks and whites as well. Probably some Asian kids in there too, but that's not the point. Question; why is this important?

random colors.

 

"we need gang colors that are not red or blue."

"done."
