The Maibatsu Corporation (BAWSAQ: MAI) is a Japanese multinational conglomerate that has appeared in every Grand Theft Auto game since Grand Theft Auto III, except for Grand Theft Auto Advance. The name "Maibatsu" is a portmanteau of Daihatsu and Mitsubishi, and is also similar in name to "Zaibatsu" (財閥), a Japanese term for a large conglomerate.

Trivia

  • The "Maibatsu Corporation" is likely a nod to the Zaibatsu Corporation, a massive corporation that plays a large role in Grand Theft Auto 2.
  • Despite the fact that Maibatsu made a helicopter, in real life, Japanese companies are prohibited from exporting aircrafts as an impact of Japan's defeat back in World War 2.
