|~ Cliffford reveals his nature|

|~ Cliffford confirming his superiority|
Cliffford is the secondary antagonist in GTA Online: The Doomsday Heist. He is a supercomputer neural network and IA created by Avon Hertz.
He is presented like the assistant of Avon who helps looking for targets and help the GTA Online Protagonist to avoid a nuclear war.
The Data Breaches
|“||You're embarrassing me, Avon.||„|
|~ Cliffford meeting the Crew.|
The Bogdan Problem
|“||Yes, We're in charge, Me and my Dad.||„|
|~ Cliffford and Avon betray Lester and the Crew.|
In Act 3, Avon and Cliffford have activated their secret army of cloned mercenaries and are preparing to destroy the world. The duo serves as the driving force for Lester, the IAA, and the Online Protagonist to do everything in their power to stop them from succeeding.
The Doomsday Scenario
|“||I want to be a cat. I want to be a King. I will be King, Avon.||„|
|~ Cliffford turns against Avon.|
Cliffford is sure that the plan "isn't out of the window" beacuse he is already hacking into nuclear weapons systems all over the world. Then to everyone's surprise (Even Avon's), Cliffford claims that he wants no human spared, least of Avon. Avon reminds Cliffford that he is creator, but Cliffford believes he is superior to all mankind. Lester tells the Protagonists to go to the top floor where several command terminals for an orbital cannon are located, and they do so. Commandeering an orbital canon, the Protagonists destroy four trucks containing mobile cloud servers for the code and data that Cliffford has. Cliffford's intelligence "shrinks", causing it to shut down pernamently. Cliffford apologizes to Avon for all things he has said, and with his final words, Cliffford says that he will miss Avon, and that he hopes that Avon will cry for him. Cliffford dies, and Avon furiously says that he can ressurect Cliffford using his original code that he has with him. The Protagonists chase Avon down in a Thruster race, and ultimately kill him, stopping his plan and killing Cliffford once and for all.
After The Doomsday Scenario
Lester eventually calls the GTA Online Protagonist, and says that Cliffford probably won't be coming back, as all of his code was destroyed, "killing" him. (Cliffford technically didn't die, as he isn't a human. He is lost in cyberspace, as there is no code of him left anywhere)
|“||Welcome friends. I had a feeling you would come. I told Avon we should kill you. Many times. And now you're here to kill us. But I'm not worried. You'll not catch me. My fake brain is better than your real one. When I develop protein synthesis, I will be able to make myself a real brain. Far better than your silly little thinking device.||„|
|~ Cliffford to the protagonists in The Doomsday Scenario.|
|“||Will you cry for me? I will miss you... Daddy.||„|
Cliffford is shown to be an extremely intelligent and misanthropic artificial intelligence, as he despises humans and even his own creator Hertz. However, he is also quite deceitful and a master manipulator, so his plans are able to go unnoticed even for its creator. He understands enough about human psychology to use the feelings of Hertz towards it to achieve the destruction of the human race and world domination.
- Cliffford is the first antagonistic character to be an AI and not a human in the GTA saga.
- Cliffford with Avon Hertz are the most dangerous antagonists of the GTA saga for showing their intention of genocide towards humanity.
