The “Psycho” is obsessed with killing the band Love Fist in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. He dresses as a woman to get close to the band (it is unclear if the character normally wears women’s clothes). The game’s protagonist Tommy is tasked with protecting the band and killing the “psycho.” The video below shows this mission.
The band is also accused of being bisexual (to which they do not respond) and have a song about cross-dressing.
