The Maibatsu Corporation Mule is a box truck that has been featured in the following games:


The Mule can only support two occupants in the cab; the cargo hold does not normally open, but the cargo

hold can be exposed when the door is removed - the truck will contain various items of cargo in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.

When introduced in Grand Theft Auto III, the Mule served as a mid-size straight "luton" truck a step below the Yankee, thus being smaller in size (in actuality being narrower) and lighter. As a result, the Mule fares better in speed and acceleration but still possess average-to-poor cornering. In addition, the truck's high center of gravity may also result in easier rollovers and an inability to return upright in many occasions. The small wheels on the Mule also relate to this problem. The GTA III era Mule most closely resembles a 1989 or 1990 Ford E-350 cube van.

In GTA IV, it resembles a mid 1990's Mitsubishi Fuso FM series. It doesn't tip over as easily as previous games' renditions of the Mule, but is still slow, at 97 mph. The GTA IV Mule is manufactured by Maibatsu, and has a 3 litre diesel engine, according to the badging. ABS braking is standard. The Mule comes with various company names painted on the sides, as well as a version with no markings.

In GTA IV, like the Benson, the Mule does not power with air-brake but instead, it powers with disc/disk-brake and/or drum brake.

  • The Mule appears in Rockstar North's Manhunt 2.

  • Due to its height, the Mule in GTA IV is unsellable at Stevie's garage, as it will not fit inside.
  • The Mule plays the following radio stations by default when entered:
  • In GTA Vice City, if you damage the cargo bay door enough to break it off, it will sometimes reveal a pink flower pot with a flower inside of it. This is likely an Easter Egg as you cannot do anything with the flower.
  • The name Mule is possibly a reference to "drug mule'", the term for someone that smuggles drugs for someone else.
  • There is a vehicle in Saints Row 2 named the Mule. Coincidently, the Mule in Saints Row 2 is also a big truck. 
  • In GTA V, the rear doors can be opened by walking over them while on the roof of the truck. Players can safely enter the cargo area and stay inside without the risk of falling out while the truck is in motion.
