Red Valdez is a character in Grand Theft Auto 2 and is head of The Zaibatsu Corporation in the Residential District of Anywhere City (although his head looks identical as Trey Welsh and Uno Carb). Valdez first employs Claude Speed to steal a flamethrower from the Scientists and then use it to kill ten Rednecks. Valdez later employs Claude to blow up the Clone Test Center, collect four vehicles full of contraband, destroy two generators at the Scientist Research Center, steal some police vehicles, kill twenty Scientists in a mall and provide a distraction. Eventually, Claude angers Valdez, Billy Bob Bean (leader of the Rednecks) and Dr. LaBrat (leader of the Scientists), but manages to kill all three.
He owns a Stretch Limousine, enjoys picking up prostitutes, and, according to his police file, never sleeps. He is also known as "Android", "Ladykiller" and "The Shrink".
