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.
- Action Survivor: As part of an Action Duo with Luis in some missions wherein he handles a gun quite competently.
- All Take and No Give: His relationship with Evan Moss was like this before Evan was killed by Johnny Klebitz.
- A Father to His Men: Luis even claims to his friends that Tony is like the father he never had.
- Badass Gay: Downplayed. While he can't come close to Luis's body count, his competence with a gun and his willingness to get his hands dirty can't be denied, and the two fight side-by-side more than a few times over the course of the story.
- Bash Brothers: With Luis several times in the story.
- Extreme Doormat: The role he plays in the above-mentioned relationship. This attitude has started to creep into his business life as well, due to his growing debt.
- Functional Addict: Is almost constantly high on coke, but still manages to successfully run the city's most popular nightclubs while juggling favors for criminal syndicates.
- Large Ham: Downplayed. While he puts on a show for PR purposes and is something of a drama queen when he's stressed out, he never really gets into all-out hysteria.
- Life of the Party: Subverted. Most of his flamboyant behavior is an act put on to disguise the fact that his business has been built on shady deals with criminal organizations.
- Like a Son to Me: What he thinks of Luis. He needs to be on a considerable amount of coke to say it out loud, though.
- Nervous Wreck: He's incredibly high strung, and his debts give him plenty of reason to be. He gives Ken Rosenberg a run for his money.
- Non-Action Guy: He starts off as this, letting Luis do all the shooting and panicking at the thought of getting in a firefight. By the end of the game, though, he's become a full-on Badass Gay.
- Non-P.O.V. Protagonist: While he isn't the Player Character of Ballad, the episode's story largely revolves around him and his attempts to get out of debt.
- Straight Gay: Despite his Large Ham tendencies and nickname.
- Took a Level in Badass: The first time him and Luis are both in a combat situation, he settles for nervously trailing behind Luis and won't even pick up a gun. By the end of the game, they are gunning down enemies side by side.
- Work Off the Debt: He borrowed money from The Mafia when he was young to start his nightclub businesses. Now they've come back to collect, but he lacks the funds to pay the interest, forcing him to do their dirty work instead.
- 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.
- 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.
