Waka-Gashira Wipeout! is a mission in Grand Theft Auto III given to protagonist Claude by media tycoon and businessman Donald Love from the Love Media building in Bedford Point, Staunton Island, Liberty City.
Note: This mission prevents the player from completing Kenji Kasen's missions, which means that the player should complete Kenji's missions before doing this mission if they want to achieve 100% completion.
Claude visits Donald Love who, already being involved with real estate in Liberty City, wants to develop more properties. He realizes the cheapest way to buy the land and develop is to start a gang war between the Yakuza and the Colombian Cartel, who are already enemies. Donald tells Claude to get a Cartel Cruiser and kill the co-leader of the Yakuza, Kenji Kasen, without leaving the vehicle. Claude drives to the car park in Newport, runs over Kenji (with the possibility of gaining a 3-star wanted level in the process), escapes Newport, and leaves the vehicle.
Donald Love: Nothing drives down real estate prices like a good old fashioned gang war, apart from the outbreak of a plague, but that might going too far in this case. I've noticed that the Yakuza and the Colombians are far from friends. Let's capitalize on this business opportunity. I want you to kill the Yakuza Waka-Gashira, Kenji Kasen. Kenji is attending a meeting at the top of multi-story car park in Newport. Get a Cartel gang car and eliminate him! The Yakuza must blame the Cartel for this declaration of war!

- The first sentence Donald Love says originates from the his mentor, Avery Carrington, as referenced when he used it in a conversation with Grand Theft Auto: Vice City protagonist Tommy Vercetti in the mission Two Bit Hit. Also, both Carrington and Kasen are two mission givers killed on Love's orders.
- It is recommended to arrive at the Love Media building in a Cartel Cruiser, as that way, the player does not need to waste time, health, and Body Armor attempting to find a Cartel Cruiser in hostile territory.
- Wakagashira (若頭, Hiragana: わかがしら) is a rank in Yakuza mafia. The wakagashira is a co-leader who checks, if the Yakuza leader's orders are carried out correctly by Yakuza members.
