The Spanish Lords are a Puerto Rican gang that take influence from eastcoast hispanic gangs such as the Latin Kings. They appear in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. They are one of the largest street gangs operating in GTA IV, having turf in South Bohan, Fortside, Cerveza Heights, East Holland and south Alderney City; they maintain a strong street presence within these territories. In the Alderney City turf, since they share their turf with the Korean Mob, they don't attack each other and may even drive around in cars with Koreans in the passenger seat and both will atack the player if the car is damaged. Some notable former members of the gang include Manny Escuela and Lyle Rivas. Like the Latin Kings, they wear yellow and black; in addition to their gang colors, their clothing also usually features the Puerto Rican flag. Some are seen wearing t-shirts with "Boricua" printed on them. Most often, the Spanish Lords are seen driving in Cavalcades and Primos painted metallic red with gold rims and trim.
There are four sets of Spanish Lords members — a short, fat, bald man with a black top and gold chains (looking somewhat like Manny Escuela); a taller, heavyset dark-haired man, usually with a mustache, in a puffy coat, with red, white, and blue and Puerto Rican colors; and a younger, slim man with a yellow or white t-shirt, a yellow, red or blue cap, and a baseball jacket. The last set all have shaved heads and wear camo pants or jeans/shorts. They represent by flying the Puerto Rican flag or wearing Puerto Rican colors. Some members of the Spanish Lords don't wear yellow, but the Spanish Lords usually can be seen wearing yellow as their primary color. Sometimes, if you hit a car belonging to one while he's in it, the gang member will come out with either a Knife or Baseball Bat. At night they usually walk around with SMGs and Pistols in case of fights.

GTA Chinatown Wars
In GTA Chinatown Wars, the protagonist Huang Lee must attack the Spanish Lords; after which, he can raid their warehouse to steal a Burrito containing drugs at any time. In The Ballad Of Gay Tony, they engage Luis, Armando and Henrique in drug wars, ironically though Spanish Lords and Northwood Dominican Drug Dealers can sometimes be seen together (in The Ballad Of Gay Tony). There is no hostility towards either gang.
