Shogun Showdown is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories given to protagonist Toni Cipriani by Leone Family Don Salvatore Leone from the police station in the Pike Creek district of Shoreside Vale, Liberty City.
Salvatore, still irate at his imprisonment, continues to receive bad news. He comments about how the mafia have mostly lost Liberty City, the Triads and Diablos are taking control of Portland, Miles O'Donovan will not allow him to go on bail, and the Yakuza are arming themselves to move into Liberty City. Toni believes he can solve the problems and is told by Salvatore that the weapons are being held in Aspatria on Staunton Island. Toni drives to the compound, kills many Yakuza gang members, and steals a tank. He then takes it to 8-Ball's bomb shop in Newport, fitting it with a bomb and then, once at a distance, detonating the bomb, which destroys the tank. However, Toni can still destroy the tank by any other means, one of them being driving the tank into the water.
Toni Cipriani: Sal? How's it going?
Salvatore Leone: Fuckin' bene! Just great! Number one, the new mayor is fixing it so I don't get bail. Number two, we're stuck fighting the God-damn Triads and Diablos. Number three, I hear that the fuckin' Yakuza are gonna make a play to take over the city. Other than that, everything is just peachy! After all these years of mob control, we've finally flushed it all down the crapper!
Toni Cipriani: Boss, I can take care of everything.
Salvatore Leone: The Yakuza have got a load of weapons in Aspatria. Nothing can stop them now!
Toni Cipriani: We'll see about that.
(Toni enters the Yakuza compound and sees the tank)
Toni Cipriani: Holy Shit! I don't fucking believe it!
Post mission phone call
Toshiko Kasen: Is this Mr. Cipriani?
Toni Cipriani: Who's this? How'd you get my number?
Toshiko Kasen: If one puts their mind to it, one can achieve much. I shouldn't have to tell you that, Mr. Cipriani. I need your help in a delicate matter. For this help you will be richly rewarded. I will explain when you arrive at my apartment in Torrington.
- The mission is inspired by 2 real life incidents, one in 1982 in Mannheim, Germany, where a US soldier stole a tank, and another where a tank was stolen in San Diego in 1995.
