Tommy's fear of sharks


Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if someone has already done this topic before, but I've come to another implication of Tommy: he's has an abnormal fear of sharks. I mean aside from the fact that he can't swim, there's also the cutscenes with Steve Scott where he constantly tells Steve not to add a giant shark in an audition. The way he constantly kept demanding Steve to keep the giant shark out of the audition pretty much gives away a hint. In fact, I also have a theory that Tommy had a bad experience with a shark when he was young and that might explain his inability to swim since he was so scared of sharks that he was probably afraid to dip into any water that wasn't his bathtub. What do you guys think?

Now who wouldn't be afraid with all of them red sharks, tiger sharks, bull sharks, great white sharks, whale sharks and megalodon sharks swimming about?

Hmmm nice bike

So when he falls into the water and doesn't bother trying to swim until the last second after his health completely drops, he's actually frozen in fear?

Tommy would be smart enough to at least try to swim to shore if he gets even into the shallowest waters.

Then if he was scared of sharks wouldn't he know how to swim to GET AWAY from the sharks?

Nothing indicates Tommy is afraid of sharks, he just finds Steve Scott's ideas too extravagant.


As for the fact Tommy can't swin, Rockstar probably didn't find relevant adding it given the short time they took to develop GTA VC.

Sharks killed his real family when he was a little boy. He's been afraid of sharks and other sea critters ever since that fateful day in 1953.

I doubt Tommy has any fear of sharks. That scene with him arguing about Steve with the shark was really more of him being annoyed with Steve Scott's bizarre ideas than any actual fear of the sea creatures.

Being scared of sharks doesn't really cause you to drown in the water. If he really was scared then he would at least TRY to swim away from them.

There's also a stat of 'Fishes fed', meaning that when you drown you might be eaten by sharks.

Was he affraid of sharks or was it the repudiation of adding a swimming feature circa 2002?

Why would he be scared of sharks?

He's not afraid to take out big crime bosses and gang members so why would he be scared of a stupid shark?

If he had a huge fear of sharks, I doubt he would even go on a boat.
