The Snakehead is a character who appears as a minor character in GTA San Andreas. He is the leader of the Da Nang Boys, and is involved in human trafficking. During the mission The Da Nang Thang, he is killed by Carl Johnson. A seemingly unarmed Carl enters the bridge of the ship, where The Snakehead has been waiting. The Snakehead, himself armed with a katana, throws another to Carl, and engages him. Despite the player being given a Katana, the player can freely choose to shoot or beat Snakehead to death, although even dueling honourably with the Katana is very easy; if the player is accurate enough, it is possible to chop off his head in one slash.
