GTA Myths Wiki
For the myth or related to Aliens myths in other GTA games, see Aliens.

Aliens have been rumored to appear in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas since the game's release. They are directly tied in with the UFOs myth.


Aliens in GTA San Andreas are commonly reported in and around Area 69, Aldea Malvada, as well as in the desert in Bone County. Most people describe their encounter with them as being peaceful creatures and not aggressive. However, due to a lack of evidence, the physical description of aliens in the game is not very clear, though most players describe the aliens to be gray, slender creatures with black eyes and at about the same height as Carl Johnson. It is believed they can also be seen landing in UFOs at night time next to The Big Ear in Bone County.

According to the Epsilon Program, aliens are present on Earth.

There are various in-game references to aliens. In the mission Black Project, the lady speaking over the megaphone in Area 69 can be heard saying "All personnel working on alien bodies evacuate immediately", as well as other various statements relating to extraterrestrials and UFOs. Many players have connected Mr. Trenchcoat with aliens. In the game, he will talk to the player and other peds about Aliens. Some of his lines include:

  • "The aliens are coming!"
  • "Can't let them take me again..."
  • "You green-blooded abomination!"
  • "It's the voices!"

Some homeless pedestrians also have dialogue featuring paranoid rants about "reptilian" aliens.

Men in Black

In the mission Stowaway, when the special agents take some cargo from the Verdant Meadows airstrip, and when the Player boards the plane and fights those men until he kills them all and plants a Satchel while he fights the "men", they have strange dialogue involving some insults to Mammals and Carbon-based life forms. This could mean they are shape-shifting aliens. The creature in the jar of green goo in the mission Green Goo could be one of them, just kept in mint condition, in its primary form to be experimented on instruments in Area 69.

Strange Pedestrians


DNMOLC1 is the model name given to this pedestrian in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. This pedestrian is classified as an old male Native American and a local to the desert area. He wears a Native American-style brown and red bandana around his head and an Indian-style necklace and speaks with a Native American accent. He can be found almost anywhere in Bone County, walking around outside or in interiors and driving vehicles. Fans and users believe that this pedestrian is an alien disguised as an old Native American man. At first, he may come off as a traditional old American Indian saying "we must take care of Mother Earth" and talking about spirits to himself. However, the first hints he gives off as being an alien impersonating an Indian is by saying "you're a genius civilization" to himself. When the player bumps into him he says stuff like "is this mating?", "I come in peace", and other remarks. When provoked into fighting you he says "I do not wish to hurt you", "I will throw with my right?", "I will spill your fluids", and other things that an ordinary human wouldn't say. In some of the rare conversations he has with other pedestrians he can be heard to say "You are poised for extinction". He is one of the few pedestrians that will not comment on Carl Johnson's appearance. Not much is known about the alleged "Disguised Alien". One notable thing about him is that any place you find him will be near Area 69. This is a little suspicious. However, some doubt must be taken into consideration. He may be referencing his race/ethnicity, such as "you're a genius civilization" could simply mean he adores Western culture. He may simply appear near Area 69 because of his spawn area coded into the game, which includes many other peds.

Paranoid Cowboy

The Paranoid Cowboy is a pedestrian found walking around The Big Ear, Fort Carson, inside The Big Spread Ranch, and inside the 24/7 food market. This pedestrian model can only spawn one at a time in each location, however. This pedestrian is very hard to miss. He wears brown cowboy boots, blue jeans, a blue and white checkered flannel shirt, black sunglasses, and a large cowboy hat. He also has a light brown beard and has a cigarette in his mouth. Apparently, he has a look-alike, making it rather hard to identify him, the only difference is his voice, the Paranoid Cowboy speaks with no particular accent and his look-alike speaks with a heavy country accent (also shared with another pedestrian). There isn't much to tell about the Paranoid Cowboy other than beyond making comical remarks, he is jokingly paranoid of being abducted by aliens. This is apparent by the remarks he makes about Carl Johnson's appearance. He will say to CJ: "You won't abduct me, no you won't" and "Boy, you sure make a good target for them," presumably speaking about aliens.
