pretty the topic speaks for itself.

I am curious if anyone would how or already rip some model (characters) from the games themselves? and if so, can someone please let me know. It would mean a lot to me.

Welcome & enjoy, take a minute (if you haven't already) to read the rules & checkout the layout of the site.
Start w/ this tutorial -

For GTA3/VC/SA it's fairly easy, they're in the file GTA3.IMG in the MODELS folder.

Use an IMG tool, EXPORT feature to find the DFF & TXD of a model. Save them in a folder w/ a name you'll recognize
like "OEM Sabre" (for the Sabre). The Export function just pulls a copy of the desired file out of the IMG file & still leaves
the model in the game until you use DELETE.

The DFF is the model itself & the TXD is the textures.

Just don't forget step 1: BACK UP EVERY FILE YOU PLAN TO EDIT!!!

If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it's meant to be.

If not, point & laugh when it flies into a woodchipper.

EDIT: ok I read the tut. I have one question: with these files(some do have models in em) is it possile to open them up in 3Dmax or maya? and if so, would i need a converter to do so.

I do believe there's a dff plugin for 3DS Max, not sure about Maya.

Google is your friend.
