    Gay Tony 

Anthony "Gay Tony" Prince
Voiced by: David "D.B. Cooper" Kenner

The owner and manager of Maisonette 9 and Hercules, two of Liberty City's biggest nightclubs. He is Luis Lopez's employer and mentor figure, but his descent into debt and his drug addiction has strained their relationship.

    Yusuf Amir 

Yusuf Amir
Voiced by: Omid Djalili

A young Arab real estate developer who wants to franchise Gay Tony's clubs.

  • Arab Oil Sheikh: Technically, he is the heir to one, but is also effectively one in terms of the wealth he already possesses and the business ventures he spearheads.
  • Badass Boast: Offers them throughout the chase.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: He's a light-hearted guy, but as soon as you'll hurt those he considers his friends, the joke is over.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Twice in the final level. First, he helps Luis make it to Francis International Airport using his golden Buzzard. Second, he offers to help remove the remaining debt from Tony and Luis for good by buying and franchising Maisonette 9 for them.
  • Big Fun
  • Bling-Bling-BANG!: Has a few golden Uzi submachine-guns, one of which he gives to Luis as a gift in return for helping him. He even has his Buzzard attack chopper (which Luis helped him obtain) painted gold.
  • Caught with Your Pants Down: By his father no less.
  • Characterisation Marches On: In GTA IV, Playboy X describes him as a "serious and overworked man". From what we see in The Ballad Of Gay Tony, he is anything but.
  • Collector of the Strange: He has cars and fricking helicopters among other things made out of pure gold.
  • Eccentric Millionaire
  • Foreign Culture Fetish: He enjoys hip-hop culture, and (painfully) recreates the mannerisms associated with it.
  • Funny Foreigner: Light-hearted, "street", and carefree. He tends to provide a lot of comic relief in his missions.
  • Gunship Rescue: In the final level, he saves Luis from getting killed by Bulgarin's assassins using his golden Buzzard, clearing a way into Francis International.
  • Hidden Depths : When Playboy X hires Niko to trash a building site that he thought Yusuf wanted a strike to be cleared from, Yusuf suspends progress on the new building and he closes down the site in memory of those killed by Niko.
  • Hookers and Blow: And No Pants.
  • Innocently Insensitive: He repeatedly and freely drops the n-word because he thinks this is just something cool that Western people call each other, not realizing how offensive this would be specially towards Luis (a Dominican) who gets annoyed and warns Yusuf that he shouldn't do it.
  • Lonely Rich Kid: He lives in the lap of luxury, but some get the impression he is a lonely, socially awkward man who just wants a good friend.
  • Pretty Fly for a White Guy: Arab in his case, but still pretty much qualifies.
  • One-Man Army: In the final mission.
  • Rich in Dollars, Poor in Sense: If the suggestion that he has 3 solid gold guns is anything to go on, and that's just one of his 'investments'.
  • Upper-Class Twit: Averted; he may be a bit obnoxious, but he is genuinely nice to Luis.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: His relationship with his father. He wants to make his father Abdul proud of him but his lavish lifestyle (and building style) is considered to be "shameful" and "disgraceful", due to his conservative views.

    Mori Kibbutz 

Mori Kibbutz
Voiced by: Jeff Gurner

Brucie Kibbutz's elder brother and one of Gay Tony's creditors.

  • Big Brother Bully: Dear lord is he cruel to Brucie. One has to wonder how many of the man's issues are a direct result of Mori's abuse.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: Courtesy of a spray-tan.
  • Evil Counterpart: To his own brother, Brucie. Both are obsessed with being as physically fit as possible and both are extremely self-absorbed and egotistical. However, Brucie genuinely respects the people that are close to him (such as Niko), whereas Mori is a complete asshole to just about everybody.
  • Jerkass: He verbally abuses every single person that he speaks to, and never once indicates even the slightest hint of empathy. Not even after the end of the story.
  • Jerk Jock: The fact that he manages to be this well into adulthood really says something about him.
  • Loan Shark: Whom Tony owes money to, thus forcing Luis to do some work for him.
  • The Napoleon: He is notably shorter than most characters, and he is complete jerkass who is very insecure about his height.
  • Schoolyard Bully All Grown Up: He basically serves as this to Brucie, showing up years after they've both grown up to torment his little brother once again.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Slightly more famous than Brucie, but with an even bigger ego than him.
