If you are on a slow connection, go to Characters Category for a name only list.

This is a list of Characters in the Grand Theft Auto series and lists characters by surname. When surnames are not available, first names are used and then nicknames. To find characters whose names are known, but are better known by nicknames (such as Melvin Harris, known better as Big Smoke), you can use the Find function. To access this, press the Control (Ctrl) and F keyboard buttons at the same time.

Some characters listed appear in other Rockstar Games titles, such as Manhunt, but are listed here as they are in some way related to the GTA series. The characters listed either appear or are mentioned in a GTA game. The games are written as short hand IDs, which are as follows:
