Power-ups in the first Grand Theft Auto encompass a variety of pickups that primarily alter the player's behavior, grant them temporary or permanent benefits that can aid the player during missions, dire situations, or simply for fun.

Power-ups are scattered across the city within crates which can be broken using the player's weapon (including melee attacks) or using a vehicle, and picked up while on foot or in a vehicle.
