- ― Mori Kibbutz
Mori Kibbutz is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as a main character in The Ballad of Gay Tony. Mori is a fitness enthusiast, business entrepreneur and the older brother of Brucie Kibbutz. He believes that he is superior to everyone else, including his brother, who he shames and bullies on a constant basis. He is notably shorter than any other character, and it is strongly suggested (sometimes outright stated) that he suffers from a severe Napoleon complex.
Early Life up to 2008
According to Mori, he joined the Israeli military at age 18, finished after three years when he was 21, and proceeded to be accepted to two Ivy League colleges in which he studied for an MBA (normally a two-to-three year program) and received 4.0s.
He then invested in real estate and other fields, making him quite wealthy. He ridicules Brucie for not doing as well in real estate, mockingly asking him how much he paid for his garage, and how much it is currently worth. He also continued as a fitness enthusiast, having significantly more defined muscle mass than his brother (which he claims he achieved naturally), as well as an obviously fake spray tan.
Mori is one of the many people who lent money to Gay Tony and believes he owns him. Luis Lopez is forced to work with Mori for some time and witnesses his harshness towards his younger brother, who Luis tries to defend, which causes Mori to harass them both, giving Luis a strong dislike towards him. First he helps Mori take care of some dealers down in the Bohan docks.
Tired of Mori's constant bragging, Luis defeats Mori in a high-profile, private vehicle triathlon, gambling the elimination of Tony's debt versus ownership of the club and Luis' services, and the defeated Mori, completely submerged in cocky denial, claims that he wanted Luis to win.
Eventually, after a car theft and drag race the trio commits, Luis encourages Brucie to stand up to Mori, who berates Brucie until he loses his temper and breaks his older brother's nose. Dropping his tough guy persona, Mori breaks down and cries, while Brucie pleads with him not to tell their mother, which he agrees. Later, he is seen in the end credits, sparring with Brucie in the L.C Fight Club without being overly violent towards him.
After The Ballad of Gay Tony
After the game's events, Mori calls Luis with a profound apology for his attitude, saying he has found "enlightenment" and moved to a real Kibbutz (lit. a traditional Jewish community in Israel, based around farming for self-sustenance). However, it is revealed that he has subverted the values of sharing among the commune, calling it "communism" (i.e. of a commune) and seems to be running it for profit, so much as to deny food to an old man until he finishes working. After the call, he is removed from Luis' cell phone.

- Mori says that Brucie is hanging out with "immigrant scumbags", referencing his friendships with Roman and Niko Bellic.
- He claims to have a very large penis, calling it "the monster". Interestingly, a tattoo can be seen on his back, which, when translated into traditional Chinese, reads "small penis", contradicting his statement.
- Though his Buffalo's color is, in fact very hard to find in other Buffalos driven by pedestrians, it is not unique, (see the Gallery below) as Buffalos with that color can be found sometimes between Meadows Park and the Francis International Airport.
- Despite the fact that he calls Luis to tell him he is working on a Kibbutz in Israel, he is shown in the Ballad Of Gay Tony credits sparring with Brucie in the fight club.
