Mike (Grand Theft Auto Advance)

The main character in Grand Theft Auto Advance. He starts out working with his friend Vinnie to leave Liberty City, and retire from mob life, however, when Vinnie is apparently killed, Mike is pulled back in. He works for several criminal sources to find out the truth behind Vinnie's death.

  • Badass
  • Broken Pedestal: Vinnie is eventualy revealed to have faked his death in order to not only escape the criminal life alone but also leave with Mike's half of the money.
  • Expy: Due to lack of character development, he is alot like Claude.
  • I Owe You My Life: Mike was saved by Vinnie from a life living homeless on the streets.
  • Heel-Face Revolving Door
  • Revenge: His primary motivation is to find the people behind Vinnie's death.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Flee's by plane to Columbia and finally leaves his life of crime behind him.
  • The Stoic: Justified given the top down view of the game. Only time we see his face is in an illustration.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Vinnie, which drives him to find his killer against the odds. Which makes Vinnie's betrayal all the more unexpected and devastating.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Pretty much everyone uses him for their own gains. Though Mike is turn is using them to find out the truth. It eventually turns out even Vinnie was using him the whole time.

    Grand Theft Auto Chinatown Wars 

Huang Lee

Voiced by:

The main character of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars and one of the more intelligent GTA protagonists. He starts out relatively naive and expects to be treated well, but instead ends up working for his uncle for awhile, and it all goes uphill from there.
