Bully has several subtle references to the GTA franchise:

- Jimmy Hopkin's stepfather owns a dark purple Washington. It is only seen once at the beginning of the game.
- The Police Rancher and Police Cruiser appear in Bully. (The cars are similar in appearance to those in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas).
- A Diablo Stallion can be found in Shop class. The car has a different flame pattern though, and lacks a hood-mounted supercharger.
- A blue Regina can also be sighted on a car-lift in Shop.
- A yellow Forklift can be found parked in a shipping warehouse.
- A white Yankee with a dark-blue cargo hold can be found parked in an empty lot near another warehouse.
- A white Boxville can be found in Blue Skies Industrial Park.
