DescriptionEdit

GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories Edit

Unlike the other Mule based vans, the Mr. Wongs in GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories are front wheel drive. The Mr. Wongs may also achieve very high speed despite its bad handling due likely to its heavy weight. Aside from the drivetrain, it is basically identical to the Triad Fish Van, right down to the horn. Like the Mule and Triad Fish Van, the Mr. Wongs is also available in a variety of body colors.

The truck is evidently named after Mr. Wong's Laundrette in Chinatown in Portland, Liberty City. When entered by the player, the truck is referred to as "Mr. Wongs" (without a period in the end of "Mr" and an apostrophe before the "s"), but the period is present on the company graphics of the truck, and both the period and the apostrophe appear on the logo on the window of the store. Much like the launderette itself, the van also features the slogans: "Liberty's First Choice For All It's Dirty Laundry" and "If It Ain't Wong, It Ain't White" (a pun on the phrase "If it ain't wrong, it ain't right").

In the GTA III instruction manual, where it talks about the Triads, the Mr. Wongs is depicted as being the gang car of the Triads, although in GTA III it appears only in one mission (Taking Out the Laundry), and the normal gang vehicle used by the Triads is the similar Triad Fish Van. This may suggest that in the Beta, the gang car normally used by the Triads was the Mr. Wongs.

GTA Advance Edit

Wong-GTAA

A "Wong" in GTA Advance.

In GTA Advance, the vehicle, which name is shortened to be known simply as the "Wong", is the gang car of the Triads, substituting the role of the Triad Fish Van, known in the game as the Belly. It is effectively the largest truck in the game.
