You're a goddess, smoke like one too.
— Slogan

Athena 200's is a brand of women's cigarettes that appear in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars.

Description

Ads for Athena 200's can be heard on the radio in GTA Vice City Stories (with the slogan "You're a goddess, smoke like one too".

The brand appears to be commonly mocked and it is mentioned on the Redwood Cigarettes website, stating that "no real man would smoke an Athena, even if he was drunk". Cousin Ed also makes fun of Lazlow in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories stating that he probably smokes Athena 200's, once again criticizing him.

Athena 200's are likely a parody of the fashion cigarette trend of the 1980s and '90s, with its female-targeted marketing and ultra-slim styling a play on brands like Eve or Virginia Slims.
