An example of a blip with a marker on a car using opcode 0186 in Vice City.

A blip is a marker or an icon on the game's radar. It is generally represented by a colored square, which can be replaced with a sprite instead using certain opcodes. Since Vice City, square blips can change into a triangle pointing up or down depending on the elevation of the blip in relation to the player. Some blips placed in the world can mark its location in the world with a colored cylinder (called "sphere"). Some blips placed on an entity (character, vehicle, object, pickup, etc.) can mark its assignment to it with a colored arrow floating above it.
