Michael De Santa GTA V Character Analysis – Skills, strong & weak points, Know All
GTA V is known for its great online multiplayer mode, which has stolen the attention of almost all the fans of the game thanks to the fact that getting together to play with friends in a huge city turns out to be more attractive for everyone nowadays than having an experience offline.
But the campaign experience is truly second to none, as the story of Michael De Santa, Trevor and Franklin will forever live in our hearts as one of the greatest stories ever told within a GTA game.
Within this story we can see these three characters face life in a completely different way but with a way of complementing each other as the story progresses and they are hitting each other.
It is thus that we know the life and family of each one of them and it seems that the one who is doing better of all is Michael himself, who seems to have a really interesting salary.
GTA V and Michael De Santa Life in Luxury
He was either born in 1965 or 1968. Being able to know how much money Michael earns per year requires a lot of analysis on the part of whoever wants to discover this since it is never explicitly stated in the game.
Fortunately, the Raisin UK site was given the task of analyzing the annual salary of many characters in video games and it turns out that among all those that were analyzed (and boy, the list is somewhat strange with characters from all sides) they reached the strange conclusion that Michael is the second highest paid character in all of video games. Again, the list and characters involved are very arbitrary and we could surely find someone with a lot more money.
Michael De Santa is perhaps the most beloved character in the entire GTA series, given how down-to-earth and “empathetic” his approach to things tends to be. Unlike most villains, Michael doesn’t like to cause others pain for no reason. He will go to great lengths to avoid killing a person unnecessarily. But it’s his irrevocable love for The Forbidden that keeps him miserable all the time, and that will eventually lead him back to the only world he’s ever known: The Underworld.
Michael De Santa is also the one who framed Franklin and turned him into the criminal kingpin he is known for. He is undoubtedly one of the best characters in the GTA series. He is bored and frustrated by his domestic life, with his only outlets being whiskey, watching old Vinewood action movies, and trips to his therapist. De Santa serves as the “brains” and leader of the gang, and is described as a “smooth operator”.
The retired bank robber Michael is an expert marksman – his Special Ability slows down time in a gunfight allowing him to pick off his targets with greater ease.
Strange names and salaries
As for the other members of the list, we can find names like Samus Aran from the Metroid series, Albert Wesker from Resident Evil and even Mario and Luigi from the Super Mario Bros. saga.
Honestly, putting Mario and Luigi at the bottom is kind of a way to get attention, but it doesn’t make any sense, since they get gold coins the size of their bodies from almost anything they do within their games, especially within New Super Mario Bros. 2 where the gold coins arrive as if from the air itself. Maybe the economy of the Mushroom Kingdom is not that good or the currency can be devalued thanks to the amount of coins there are. But when we see that they are pure gold coins. Ee can be sure that the wealth of the Kingdom has no equal anywhere else video game, especially the Riches of Mario and Luigi.
Can you imagine the coffers of gold that this pair of plumbers have? Honestly, their fortune is immeasurable and the figure they used is very strange to me. Surely they took an approximate figure of what a plumber earns and considered themselves well served.
Still, we think it’s an interesting list that can be greatly improved with real knowledge about video games and the characters being talked about. But simply, the fact that Joel from The Last of Us earns more money in a post-apocalyptic world than Mario in a world full of money speaks volumes about this list.
