The '''San Fierro Rifa''' (or Rifa) is the sole [[Mexico|Mexican]] gang in [[San Fierro (3D Universe)|San Fierro]] led by [[T-Bone Mendez]]. The gang established drug trade relations with [[Big Smoke]], the [[Ballas (3D Universe)|Ballas]], [[Los Santos Vagos (3D Universe)|Los Santos Vagos ]] and [[Russian Mafia (3D Universe)|Russian Mafia]] after Big Smoke's [[The Green Sabre|Betrayal]]. Rifa has strong dislike towards other Mexican gangs in [[Los Santos (3D Universe)|Los Santos]], until they joined the narcotics business with Big Smoke and linked up with the Los Santos Vagos. The Rifa and Vagos often deal with each other in narcotics as seen in the mission [[Wrong Side of the Tracks]]. They are also on unfriendly terms with the other San Fierro gangs - the Chinese [[San Fierro Triads]] and the Vietnamese [[Da Nang Boys]], though confrontations of these gangs are rare, as their territories are far away from each other. And the focus of the Rifa is also not based on a gang war with the other San Fierro gangs but in narcotics business.
   
The '''San Fierro Rifa''' (or Rifa) is the sole Mexican gang led by [[T-Bone Mendez]] based in [[San Fierro]], later seen to be collaborating with [[Big Smoke]], the [[Ballas]], [[Los Santos Vagos]] and [[Russian Mafia]] in the narcotics business. The Rifa also appear to work as thugs and protection for the [[Loco Syndicate]], possibly because leader T-Bone Mendez is a co-leader of the Loco Syndicate.

They are the least threatening and violent on the streets: when the player attacks them, they usually run, although they may come back and attack Carl and some armed Rifas will attack him on sight, rather than running away from him briefly. Nearby Rifa will also question Carl on his gang-banging status, if the player chooses to respond positively - the Rifa will sometimes (but not always) attack as opposed to the Los Santos gangs who will almost always attack.

The San Fierro Rifa (or Rifa) is the sole Mexican gang in San Fierro led by T-Bone Mendez. The gang established drug trade relations with Big Smoke, the Ballas, Los Santos Vagos and Russian Mafia after Big Smoke's Betrayal. Rifa has strong dislike towards other Mexican gangs in Los Santos, until they joined the narcotics business with Big Smoke and linked up with the Los Santos Vagos. The Rifa and Vagos often deal with each other in narcotics as seen in the mission Wrong Side of the Tracks. They are also on unfriendly terms with the other San Fierro gangs - the Chinese San Fierro Triads and the Vietnamese Da Nang Boys, though confrontations of these gangs are rare, as their territories are far away from each other. And the focus of the Rifa is also not based on a gang war with the other San Fierro gangs but in narcotics business.

The only gang the Rifa has a strong dislike to is the Varrios Los Aztecas, who are well away from their territory, and in a different city. Although the Rifa are also known for various clashes with the Grove Street Families and member (and protagonist) Carl Johnson, they are normally not hostile towards the Grove Street Families (though the confrontations between the two is rare, but this can be noted as the gang is not hostile towards CJ unless provoked). They are the least threatening and violent on the streets: when the player attacks them, they usually run, although they may come back and attack Carl and some armed Rifas will attack him on sight, rather than running away from him briefly. Nearby Rifa will also question Carl on his gang-banging status, if the player chooses to respond positively - the Rifa will sometimes (but not always) attack as opposed to the Los Santos gangs who will almost always attack.

Rifa members nearly have the same turqouise color bandanas that Varrios Los Aztecas wear (the Rifas colors are slightly more vibrant) but are not to be mistaken as a Northern set of the gang as they do not like each other. Also, Rifa members are easily recognizable because of their baggy slacks. They have three different skins that will drive and patrol around their territories:

  • The first member wears a white fedora, turquoise bandana, white beater, black slacks, suspenders, black shoes and has tattoos.
  • The second member wears sunglasses, a turquoise bandana, black vest, a cross necklace, blue slacks, brown shoes and has tattoos.
  • The last member wears a collared blue T-shirt, turquoise bandana, black slacks, suspenders, black shoes and also has tattoos.

Despite the death of leader, T-Bone Mendez during the events of the game, the gang remains in existence in their turfs throughout San Fierro, although following the destruction of the Loco Syndicate and their crack lab, it is unlikely they are involved in the drugs trade any further as there is nobody else to supply them.

They make their final appearance in End of the Line where they were hired by Big Smoke for protection purposes of his crack empire in collaboration with the Ballas, Los Santos Vagos, and Russian Mafia. Ultimately, the Rifas, alongside the other gangs, are defeated.

The San Fierro Rifa gang members are seen driving Stallions, Sabres, and Blades and listen to the radio station K-JAH West.
