I'll see Love Fist burn! Love Fist ruined my life!

–The Psycho

The Psycho is a man who wanted to kill the whole Love Fist band in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. There is also an Easter egg dedicated to him in Grand Theft Auto V.

Description

The psychopath's only physical appearance was in the mission Psycho Killer. He is dressed in women's clothes, indicating he either does not want attention, or is a cross-dresser. He also has a low-pitched voice, contrary to his clothing.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

Psycho Killer

Before Tommy confronts the Psycho, he is seen murdering a security guard with his pistol. After doing so, he yells how much he hates Love Fist and drives away with his car. Tommy then gives a chase to him and seemingly kills him.

Publicity Tour

However, in the mission, Publicity Tour Love Fist says to Tommy that the guy is still threatening them, the Psycho didn't die at all. The five then go into their limo to get to the venue. There, they find a tape in which the psychopath comments on how they shouldn't slow down, or their car will explode, along with their "BIG, HAIRY ARSES!"

Survival

The killer first received the attention of myth hunters due to his inexplicable survival. Despite being blown up in his vehicle, the killer returns on the next mission, seemingly unharmed. It has been theorized that he is an immortal demon, or Tommy killed his double instead. However, the killer can alternatively get out of his vehicle and attempt to shoot Tommy. This would suggest that the Psycho exiting his vehicle, shooting Tommy, and then staging his own death is the canon situation. Surviving a vehicle explosion is certainly not possible to do.

Grand Theft Auto V

In Grand Theft Auto V, there is an Easter egg dedicated to the Psycho. In the mission, Vinewood Souvenirs - Willy, only playable as Trevor, the player needs to punch Willy in the face to acquire his golden tooth. The player also has a choice to kill him.

It is easy to notice a connection between Trevor and the Psycho Killer. Both are psychopaths and Trevor can wear female clothes. This and the band member's possible death make a slight reference to how the Psycho from GTA Vice City wanted to kill whole band.

Trivia

  • Since Love Fist's whole mission strand is based on a satire of classic rock, the Psycho's name may be a reference to the Talking Heads' song of the same name.
