Events of GTA San Andreas

Joining the Loco Syndicate, Deals with Ryder

"This guy is T-Bone Mendaz. He's the muscle."

By 1992, Mendez had become one of the three members in the Loco Syndicate, along with Mike Toreno and Jizzy B.. Mendez become the muscle and protection of the syndicate, with Toreno overseeing and Jizzy arranging deals. T-Bone is a large man, and very distrustful of others, nearly to the point of paranoia. He is seen beating a man to death during The Introduction machinima.

T-Bone makes his first appearance in Photo Opportunity. The dialogue about the history between the Rifa and the Varrios came from a dummied out beta version of that mission, which included CJ and Cesar spying on the meet while in a helicopter.

Working with Carl Johnson

"Horale, ese."
―T-Bone to Carl

He and Carl Johnson are introduced in the the mission T-Bone Mendez, and in the mission Mike Toreno, CJ drives while T-Bone uses his cellphone to locate Toreno. Mendez shortly afterwards becomes distrustful of CJ, and ambushes him from the back seat of a car in Outrider, holding a gun to his face and accusing him of being a snitch, trying to scare him into admitting it. However, CJ doesn't crack.


"Mendez! I see you, Rifa motherfucker!"
Cesar Vialpando, before killing T-Bone

Mendez's next and final appearance is in Pier 69. CJ has by now turned on the Loco Syndicate and has already killed Jizzy B and is attempting to destroy the syndicate for good to stop the spread of crack into Los Santos by disrupting the syndicates partnership and deal with Big Smokes Crack Empire and the Los Santos street gangs. With the help of Cesar, CJ guns down many Rifa and Ballas. The two both shoot Mendez at the same time, and he falls over the pier and into the water below.

Mission appearances

GTA San Andreas


  • Despite sharing the same surname, it's unknown if T-Bone is in anyway related with Diego and Armando Mendez from GTA: Vice City Stories. It is unlikely however as T-Bone is of Mexican descent while the Mendez brothers are of Bolivian descent.
