Worst characters of each title


Recommended Posts

So, which characters do you know that you consider to be the worst in every title of the series? And by worst, I don't mean necessarily underdeveloped, but it might also mean extremely douchey, unlikable, or simply not as good as the other characters in the respective title.

 

As for me:

  • GTA III - Maria Latore. Not really that bad, but she's one of those I find annoying to some extent.
  • Vice City - Ricardo Diaz. Same as above, I don't hate him neither, but I do find his psychopathic attitude to be overdone. I'm glad it was slightly toned down in Vice City Stories.
  • San Andreas - Catalina and OG Loc.
  • Liberty City Stories - Giovanni Casa, and Maria Latore, again. She's far more annoying here than in GTA III.
  • Vice City Stories - Reni Wassulmaier, who I hate the most in the entire franchise to be honest, and then comes her/his boy Frankie.
  • GTA IV - I can't think of a character that I can't bear with here, but Eddie Low probably comes as my least favorite. I don't know much about any girlfriend apart from Karen and Kate, so that's that. And well, in case I'm picking the characters of the main storyline only, then it's Manny Escuela. I don't find him as annoying as many people do, though. Not as much as OG Loc at least 😜.
  • The Lost and Damned - Ed McCornish.
  • The Ballad of Gay Tony - Evan Moss, and Mori Kibbutz as close second.
  • GTA V - Jimmy Townley, then Amanda, and probably Wade Hebert as the third.

My list is based on these people just being complete arseholes and/or utter scum. Not necessarily because they're bad characters.

 

GTA III: Catalina. f*ck you bitch. 

Vice City: Diaz. How I loved wiping this prick off the face of the earth 

San Andreas: Ryder. I'm no fan of CJ (as if it's not obvious enough😛), but I have to admit Ryder drove me to the point of sheer insanity and I couldn't wait end him lol. Pulaski gets a mention for a similar reason.

LCS: Vincenzo Cilli. I don't remember much from LCS, but I remember I desperately wanted to punch this guy in the head.

VCS: Marty J Williams. As above. This guy...ah f*ck him.

GTA IV: Derrick. Snitches are bitches and don't deserve to be trusted. Sure Francis is scum too, but weirdly I have admit I appreciate he's atleast honest. Derrick's a silent assassin on the other hand. Tries to guilt Niko and an observant eye can tell how untrustworthy this sack of sh*t is and it's better to put him out of his misery.

TLAD: Brian Jeremy. Billy's try hard sidekick. That is all.

TBOGT: Rocco Pelosi. I actually love how this guy is so overtly cocky and racist it just makes it easier to hate his guts.

GTA V: Devin Weston. Rich arsehole and doesn't mind rubbing everyones' nose in it.

Ahhhh, I'm so glad people started noticing what kind of a moron Derrick is :)

 

Ontopic, I remember there's the topic that says "most hated charater in the series". I'll just quote my opinions over here because they mostly cover each other neatly.

1: El Burro. A treacherous piece of sh*t who apparently raped the protagonist after his chapter of missions.

L69: Jack Parkinson. He's a power hungry douche, idk, I just didn't like him.

L61: None

2: The Zaibatsu commanders, Trey Welsh, Red Valdez and Uno Carb (especially Red Valdez). Never been a fan of the Zaibatsu Corporation, or corporations in general. And Red Valdez is a junkie and sex addict, ew.

3: Donald Love. Another capitalist who doesn't fear anything and anyone. Oh, and Claude himself, because he's an emotionless traitor.

VC: Avery Carrington, for the same reasons as Love above. I was glad to eliminate him in LCS.

SA: Catalina. Urgh, at least you don't see her too much in III, but here she's nothing else than a stupid, aggressive bully.

Advance: Ain't too many characters I hate here. Maybe the new Cartel leader after Cisco's death, just because he's an idiot for believing Mike killed Cisco.

LCS: Definitely Toni, Sal and Love again. I don't like LCS' story and characters too much.

VCS: Jerry Martinez, he's not an antagonist but a bully. What motive did he have to go against Vic? Also Marty Jay Williams, a pathetic wife and child-beating redneck asshole.

IV: Jimmy Pegorino, he was outright pathetic, always blaming everyone for his failures. Oh and Playboy X, just because he was dumb enough to be manipulated by power. 

TLAD: Ashley Butler, Johnny told himself to lay her off but in the end she manipulated him again and got him killed. A complete femme fatale.

TBOGT: Evan Moss, another egoist, it's good that he dies.

V: Michael De Santa (Claus lol), because he's a whiny traitor. Oh man it's so tragic, I'm suffering because I f*cked up and betrayed my best friends! Also Devin Weston, for being yet again a money-crazed capitalist and mistreating Molly.

To be honest I've always seen Derrick like that which is one of the reasons "Blood Brothers" is probably the most intriguing choice in the game.

I usually choose Francis to remain alive over Derrick mostly because Derrick is a useless traitor. He doesn't even remain in touch with Niko. In the BETA he was meant to leave something at Niko's safehouse, but it's not elaborated any further. Heck, he was even meant to call after Frankie's funeral and after Dining Out.

GTA 3 - Either Maria or Salvatore. Salvatore is a bit of a prick, Maria's life is shambles.

GTA VC - Tommy. What a self-obsessed prick. Also Mercedes, for the same reason as Maria above.

GTA SA - Ryder with his attitude. Also T-bone for being a twat. Sweet is also a bit of a stubborn twat.

GTA 4 - Patrick. Couldn't stand the bastard. Also Faustin, but not so much.

GTA 5 - Lester, the limpy f*cker. Obsessed with the grandiose sense of superiority and righteousness. Lamar is also a bit of an annoying dick.

III - Catalina, the annoying traitorous bitch.

Vice City - Umberto Cojones Robina.

San Andreas - As much as I'm tempted to give this title to Catalina again, I'm going with OG Loc, annoying voice, annoying personality.

IV - Manny, f*ck you and f*ck your streets, mane.

TLaD- Ashley.

TBoGT - Mori, I was so happy when Brucie punched him in the nose.

V - Anyone from Michael's family.

Also doing annoying/scumbag characters and not necessarily bad characters

 

GTA III: Asuka and Catalina purely for how they torture that guy, damn

Vice City: Diaz, obviously a dickhead

San Andreas: OG Loc for obvious reasons, Pulaski in a love to hate way

Can't remember the characters in VCS/LCS well enough

GTA IV: Carmen, refers to herself in the third person and is extremely annoying, Manny "the streets" Escuela

TLAD: Ashley!!!

TBOGT: Mori Kibbutz (the most hateable out of this whole lot), Evan and Rocco

V: Amanda and Tracey (ridiculous), Steve Haines is quite the prick, Tonya, Tanisha (for being so pointless) and the "f*ck me in the ass!" guy

GTA 3: Kenji Kasen. The guy is an ungrateful asshole who even blames the main character for some other guy instigating a fight between the Colombians.

 

GTA VC: Hilary King. Just a pointless character. What more has to be said?

 

GTA SA: OG Loc. At least with Pulaski and Catalina, they're designed to be hated. OG Loc on the other hand is just a character who the writers want to be funny but he really just comes off as an annoying loser.

 

GTA LCS: Maria. As if she wasn't bad enough in GTA 3, she's even more annoying in this game, and she causes so much problems by being a damsel in distress just for the sake of annoying the character.

 

GTA VCS: Marty J. Williams. Abusive prick. Nuff said.

 

GTA 4: Kate. I don't really think she's the worst character in the game as much as I felt she had no personality other than being a designated love interest for Niko.

 

GTA 5: Tanisha. She's basically a female version of Sweet, only far more hypocritical and a lot less likable.

I don't think so. I always felt like he was intentionally written to be an annoying loser.

I think he's supposed to be an annoying loser who is funny and not hated though (whereas Pulaski and Catalina are meant to be villains and hated). Whether they achieved the funny part can be debated but if you think they didn't then you have an annoying character that's supposed to be funny but isn't, easily the most annoying type of character.

LCS: Vincenzo

VCS: Marty

TLaD: Ashley

CTW: Melanie. It was good for Chan to put a bullet through her skull

GTA III: Kenji Kasen. The cunt berated me for following his orders. I was glad to kill him.

GTA VC: There are some honourable mentions like Hilary King, Kent Paul and Steve Scott but if I had to pick one it'd be Umberto Robina. In VC he's such an all-talk-no-walk, it was the same in VCS but at least there he didn't have his annoying cocky attitude. I like his chill VCS-self more.

GTA Advance: There aren't that many characters and I don't remember the game very well but I guess I pick Cisco. I don't dislike him per se but I remember something about his speech pattern being all weird and annoying stereotypical Latino-American.

GTA SA: Sweet. After CJ has established many successful businesses all over the state, from modding garages to car salesrooms, an airstrip, association with a rich casino, having robbed another casino, Sweet just comes out of prison with his condescending attitude calling poor ghetto street life "What's real." which is pretty funny. He seems proud to stay a lowlife for the rest of his life and glorifies it. I never liked his baseless and close-minded criticisations of CJ.

GTA LCS: Leon McAffrey. I don't exactly dislike him but I'm simply not a fan of hypocrites in authority.

GTA VCS: Marty Jay Williams. Enough said.

GTA IV: Playboy X. He's a self-impotent narcissist. I don't think I need to elaborate.

TLAD: Thomas Stubbs. Same as Leon McAffrey. Again. I don't dislike him, I find his character interesting and well-written but he's a hypocrite with power.

TBOGT: There weren't many characters I disliked in TBOGT honestly. I guess I could say Gracie Ancelotti. She was annoying, very annoying.

GTA CTW: Who else but Chan? 

GTA V: Steve Haines. Narcissistic cunt.

VCS did a good job on toning down certain Vice City characters to be somewhat more grounded and mature, namely Cassidy, Robina and Diaz. They should've kept Lance the same as he was in Vice City IMO, instead of going completely in the opposite way.

To be honest, I liked Lance in VCS. He was stupid and crazy but it was fun to watch and be around. I found him funny. His personality and character progression to the next game in the chronology somehow makes sense. He feels like he's getting a hang of things and maturing at the end of the game, well, to some extent. Vic dying would totally purify that effort, I think.

SA: Sweet

VCS: I dunno, can't remember much. Lance?

IV: Manny + Brucie. I know they are meant to be funny idiots but they are just annoying. The way Manny ended was hilarious and made it all worth it.

TLaD: That Brian guy, obvious choice.

TBoGT: pretty much everyone. Annoying and despicable characters all around, I'm not much of a fan of Loius either.

V: That rich capitalist dude. Obvious choice again, I feel like the "over the top/not very subtle"  characters have gotten worse since the 3D era.

Gta 3- Maria Latore

Gta Vc- Hilary King 

Gta SA- OG Loc or Zero

Gta V- Devin Weston I get the idea of a rich corporate raider with a private army being the antagonist in the poor economy of the 2010s but overall I found his car missions annoying and would have rather them make Martin an actual cartel boss the firelace and Columbian necktie kind not getting bitched out by a meathead

Gta lcs- Donald love

CTW- Chan 

Gta 4- Manny of course I remember my dad clapping when he was killed lol 

TLAD- Ashley

Starting from GTA 3.

 

GTA 3: No one really. I would have said Catalina, but she's the antagonist, so her annoying attitude is excused.

 

GTA VC: Hillary mainly because how useless he was. Pain and suffering from that tedious mission just for him to die during the heist.

 

GTA SA: T-Bone, Catalina, (her annoying attitude is not excused in this game because she is not the antagonist, and the attitude is even worse in this game), and Sweet.

 

GTA A: No one. I didn't care for anyone in this game.

 

GTA LCS: Maria. She was annoying in this game and a useless drug addict.

 

GTA VCS: Marty. Hated him and how he treated Louise.

 

GTA IV: No one really, but Michelle, oh, I'm sorry, "Karen" might be an exception. Despite her beauty, she betrayed Niko and she was a cop all along. I don't know why no one didn't like Manny. I didn't mind him, but I'm starting a new playthrough and hopefully he doesn't get on my nerves this time.

 

I also didn't like Kate. The skank kept friend zoning Niko ffs.

 

GTA CTW: I haven't finished the game yet, and so far, no one is an asshole.

 

GTA V: Michael's family. Jimmy is okay I guess, because he was the only one who cared about his father. And I know Devin is the antagonist, but he still deserves a mention here for being a rich douchebag who didn't pay Franklin and Trevor for those cars.

Well to be fair, there really isn't anyone in Vice City who Tommy should give a sh*t about since almost all of them are either useless or much bigger assholes than Tommy. Who exactly can Tommy think about other then himself?

Totally agree with you on Ryder. He is never nice to CJ and even insults him at the beginning of the game. At least Sweet shows CJ some kindness. Ryder has never had a single moment where he's nice to him and even called him a liability. Plus his voice is VERY annoying. If you ask me, Ryder should've never been made a character in the game at all and the game would be so much better if it didn't have him in the game at all. He ruined the beginning of the game for all of us.

Most likely because he missed CJ and was mad at him for leaving town for five years. His attitude could've been toned down a little, though.

 

Big Smoke on the other hand is the one who always treats CJ very kindly, which is just a try to foreshadow his betrayal.

 

Ryder was obviously a traitor too, but that's only because they didn't know what to do with his character after The Green Sabre. That explains why his lines in Pier 69 are very similar to the way he talks in the beginning, "Can't stop me", "I'm a motherf*cking genius!", since they didn't intend to make him a traitor originally.
