Sumo (also capitalized as SUMO) is a Japanese electronics company in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and Grand Theft Auto IV based on Sony Corporation.


The Sumo brand is most notable as the manufacturer of Claude's Sumo Wordman pager in GTA III, but can also be spotted in multiple locations in the aforementioned games. The company's slogan is "The Industry Heavyweight".

Sumo billboards are present in GTA III in Staunton Island and Shoreside Vale. In addition, the Sumo logo can be found on certain Yankee trucks in GTA III and use Bensons in GTA Vice City. In GTA San Andreas, Sumo is known to operate in a building at the LVA Freight Depot in Las Venturas, San Andreas in GTA San Andreas; Sumo sponsorship stickers are also present on Hotring Racers cars in GTA San Andreas, and Inside Track betting shops utilize Sumo televisions to televise horse races.

The company may be operational in Grand Theft Auto IV, as the Sumo name can be seen alongside fellow electronics manufacturer Panoramic on a shop in Berchem, Alderney.
