The Lazlow Theory

Recommended Posts

theNGclan

Has anyone noticed ever since Grand Theft Auto III that every city Lazlow goes to something REALLY bad regarding criminals happens? At the EXACT moment he's there, too? It's quite possible Lazlow is dooming every place he is. He has become a magnet of crime.

Lazlow is the kingpin of all gangs in the United States.

He tests his gangs - by making them kill each other. The gangs that succeed get the most profit.

 

 

Lazlow is the one who sent mercs to kill Mike's family, not Weston. Weston is just Lazlow's puppet. Lazlow wanted revenge for that penis tattoo.

I don't think Lazlow was tha bad in III. It's not a very good theory since you don't elaborate much or give examples.

 

A better theory would be that Lazlow is Mr. Black from Vice City, or failing that, the one above this post.

There isn't much to elaborate on. The fact that every city he's been in has some extremely bad criminal stuff going down when he's there at that exact moment.

Fun fact: Vice city, Liberty city, Los Santos, San Fierro, and Las Venturas have always had criminal trouble, regardless of whether Lazlow is there or not. The GTA cities are never safe from crime.

 

As for Los Santos, we, the LSPD, are there 24/7, combating crime. :whistle:

That is true, but the events of a GTA story blow the crime out of proportion. Ironically, he just happens to be there at the exact same time.

So right as Lazlow starts working in a town, the crime rate spikes?

 

Explain how all the crime was flipping out in Carcer City then if manhunt takes place after III and Lazlow stayed in Liberty City between LCS and IV.

Not a GTA game, doesn't fully count. Although they are in the same universe, it isn't a Grand Theft Auto title.

Kinda cherry picking though, but regardless. I remember them saying in V that Liberty City still had bad crime, mostly mob related but still, it's crime that isn't revolved around Lazlow.

 

Another example dawned on me = during the 90s and early 2000s, wasn't Michael the most wanted man in America? In that time period, Lazlow would've been in San Andreas/Liberty City by then, far away from North Yankton.

 

Don't double post.

You aren't getting the point. Anything that has been blown out of proportion typically relies on the sole fact that Lazlow is in that area. Michael being the most wanted man doesn't really go along with it. Generic crime has nothing to do with him.

 

GTA III = Mafia boss taken out, Yakuza crippled, Cartel leader killed

 

GTA VC = Mafia boss taken out, drug lord killed, city taken over

 

GTA SA = State taken over, Government experiment stolen, Riot in Los Santos.

 

GTA LCS = Leones rise to power.

 

GTA VCS = Empire built in VC while others fall.

 

GTA IV = Multiple crucial criminals taken out, Ancelottis and Russians crippled by both Niko and Luis, Attack at Prison, Plane explosion, attack at Happiness island.

 

GTA V = Multiple heists, FIB situation went overkill, Military weapon stole from Merryweather, higher up officials killed.

 

He didn't cause this, but it is the striking irony of his presence and what happens around him.

So a mob gang rising to power is somewhat a bigger event than the most wanted man in America getting taken down?

Come think of it, Phil Cassidy was in all the III-era games except for SA. Perhaps he collaborated with Lazlow half the time?

In theory, a similar idea could be done, yes. The difference between Phil and Lazlow is taht Phil actually impacted the story numerous times, while Lazlow didn't appear until GTA V.

What if the "Lazlow" we see in GTA V is a body double?

Lazlow is becoming Aladeen!

Very plausible. Though the the one we have seen on the right is not a very good duplicate. It's a conspiracy.

I think the main reason why Lazlow looks different in GTA 5 and in the GTA VC artwork because he is almost 30 years older in GTA 5.Also,it would be better if there was an artwork of him made for GTA 5,or if he made an appearance in person in 3D universe,it´s hard to have his appearance similar in artwork and in game(Mercedes Cortez and some other characters looked different in artworks and in games,Phil Cassidy even looks different in artworks for different games).

I know it´s an off topic,but can someone make a comparison of Willy from Love Fist in GTA VC and GTA 5?

I think you taking this argument to a new level of stupidity...he is an employee of rockstar games who writes and records dialogue. He is in every game because he has been a fixture of the series since GTA III. Maybe they just like the guy...he's also been on Joe Rogans Podcast...etc. The link to organized crime..well duh its a GTA game what is their not supposed to be crime. And to be honest...your list...city takeovers murders of other criminal figures...happens all the time in major cities every single day...thats just business as usual. It doesn't really go above and beyond in that sense. Only in absurdity. So I think the argument is debunked. He was in all 4 cities at some point or another...but your assuming crime stops and starts with his arrival and I propose its just a continuous cycle. Military secrets are given away in every major city. Id be willing to bet there are spy rings in every major city as well. Its the way the world works.

 

Lazlows look in the Vice City poster could be intentionally made to not look like him because he is on the radio...its easy for people to be ugly in radio and get away with it...and maybe Lazlow is insecure about his appearance at that time so they hire a stand in model. I always go the feeling from that depiction of him...it wasn't supposed to be sure that it was him or not. The guy looks more like a rock star than anything else. I could be wrong about this but I didn't really put alot into this part of the theory for the fact it was done possibly intentionally or due to the fact so much time had passed.

Lazlow is actually a human incarnation of Pele, the Hawaiian God of violence, fire, volcanoes, and dance. His human form is used to subtly turn cities into violent war zones by manipulating current crime trends. Nobody knows that it's actually him because he doesn't directly involve himself in said violence.

What if lazlow just has schizoprenia and all gta games are just daydreams he has in his head with the fictional cities and characters he created ?

Lazlow and Donald Love could both be god-like characters. They appear a few times, but how they appear is very different ofc.

 

Lazlow shows up in V, but ironically, There's been bad things happening in every city he's working in. Not to mention both in the 3D and HD universes. So he could very well be a multi-dimensional creature.

 

Donald Love just disappears in GTA III, but references to him are present in GTA V. So he could be supernatural as well.

If I fell down a high enough flight of stairs this theory might actually make sense. Maybe.
