Poncho was scheduled to be a character in the 3D Universe who was dropped during the development of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Poncho was scheduled to be an ally of Frank Tenpenny who was in trouble with Los Santos Police Department cop Officer Carver. Tenpenny would send protagonist Carl "CJ" Johnson to kill Carver in the beat version of the mission Doberman to save Poncho from being arrested, believing that Poncho will talk.

His name is likely to be a reference to Officer Francis "Ponch" Poncherello, portrayed by actor Erik Estrada, on the television show CHiPs.
