The myth of '''Suicidal Pedestrians '''is a very popular legend in the GTA community. This myth is also frequently referred to as the myth of the '''Falling Lemmings''', which got its name from the 1991 puzzle video game ''Lemmings'', a video game released by DMA Design, which would later be renamed to Rockstar North - the developers of the Grand Theft Auto series.

==Grand Theft Auto III==
===Aspatria - Bedford Point Expressway===
In the Aspatria - Bedford Point Expressway tunnel on Staunton Island, pedestrians may sometimes be seen running off of the edge of the overhang above the tunnel. This is due to a pedestrian path glitch, and it is also because there is no fence or railing to prevent the pedestrians from going off the edge. Also, the pedestrian's AI is not smart enough to avoid the edge and fall off. This usually occurs if the player fires weapons while inside the tunnel, and the pedestrians may flee in panic and accidentally run off the edge, where they will fall to their deaths in the tunnel. 
==Grand Theft Auto: Vice City==
===Links Bridge ===
''See main article: ''[[Suicidal Worker]]
In the mission Phnom Penh '86, when the player passes under the Links Bridge in the Maverick, a PIGs security guard will jump off of it and will land in the water below. This can be easily seen if the player pans the camera backwards right when the helicopter passes under the bridge. It is unknown if this is an easter egg or a simple pedestrian path glitch.
==Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas==
===Flint County===
''See main article: ''[[Suicidal Photographers]]
The most famous suicidal pedestrian myth is that of the suicidal photographer. This pedestrian spawns on the shore next to the inlet in Flint County, between the countryside and Los Santos. This pedestrian can be seen kneeling down and taking photos of the Los Santos skyline across the inlet, where he will suddenly get up and walk off of a small precipice and into the water, where he will drown. It is unknown if this is an easter egg or a glitch. 
===Emerald Isle Casino===
At the southwest part of the Emerald Isle Casino in Las Venturas, there is a small corner of the building that slightly sticks out into the sidewalk. Pedestrians may sometimes spawn on the roof of this building due to a spawn glitch, and they will walk off the edge of the building and fall to their deaths on the street below. This is because the corner of the building disrupts the pedestrian's path on the sidewalk below, and sometimes pedestrians may spawn on the roof by accident.
===Caligula's Palace/Casino===
There are many strange pedestrian spawn glitches that may occur inside the Caligula's Palace. 
<span style="font-size:14px;">If the player has a wanted level of 2 stars or more, and the player goes to the roof of the casino, policemen will appear on the roof in large quantities and will be shooting at the player. Attempting to get close to the policemen will result in them backing away from the player, and this could lead to them backing off of the edge of the roof and falling to their deaths. </span>
<span style="font-size:14px;">Random pedestrians may sometimes spawn on the roof of the casino and will be walking around. Their paths are completely random, and some of the peds may walk off the edge of the building and falling to their deaths.</span>
If the player enters the casino and kills as many pedestrians as possible, and then goes up to the roof of the casino, the same pedestrians that he killed inside the building will fall from the sky and land on the roof of the casino. This glitch is related to the interior of the casino, which is located far above the casino in the [[Hidden Interiors Universe]]. If the player kills the pedestrians in the interior and then exits the building, the dead pedestrians will fall from the interior in the sky and land on the roof of the building. 
===San Fierro Driving School===
This glitch is very similar to the one mentioned earlier. The glitch will only work if the player is not dating Michelle Cannes. Go to the San Fierro Driving School in Doherty and enter it. Inside, Michelle Cannes can be found talking to another pedestrian. If the player then exits the interior and climbs to the roof of the driving school, the same pedestrian that was talking to Michelle Cannes will fall from the sky and land on the roof of the building. This glitch is also related to the driving school's interior which is located high above the driving school in the Hidden Interiors Universe. 
===Los Santos Cluckin' Bell===
In the Cluckin' Bell restaurant located in Los Santos, just north of Grove Street, pedestrians may accidentally spawn at the top of a power line pole in front of the restaurant. The pedestrians will then walk off of it and land on the ground below, but the fall is rarely high enough to cause a significant decrease in the pedestrian's health.
===San Andreas===
While this occurence is technically not the result of a spawn glitch or an easter egg, it nevertheless deserves to be listed on this page. In some GTA III Era games (GTA San Andreas in particular), pedestrians have the tendency to jump into the path of the player's vehicle, effectively making the player run over them with his car and killing them. While initially this was thought to be an easter egg referencing pedestrians attempting to commit suicide, this is actually a glitch. Pedestrians are programmed to jump away from the player's path if he is driving towards them, but if the player changes his direction or turns slightly at the last second, the pedestrian may end up jumping in the wrong direction. While this is quite common in GTA San Andreas, it has been rectified in later GTA games, and the glitch is almost nonexistent in the HD era games.
