The Chase is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City given to protagonist Tommy Vercetti by drug baron Ricardo Diaz from his mansion on Starfish Island, Vice City.


Tommy Vercetti, having impressed Ricardo Diaz by acting as his protection with the Cubans from the Haitians, goes to Diaz' mansion on Starfish Island at Diaz' request. There Diaz, the local drug baron, tells Vercetti that one of his associates from a local gang has stolen three per cent of his merchandise, which he claims is as bad as stealing one hundred per cent. Diaz tells Vercetti to follow him, to locate his main hideout so they can kill him another time.

Vercetti leaves Diaz' mansion and heads towards the mans apartment, located in a building in Vice Point. The man then runs to the roof and begins to shoot at Vercetti with a Kruger and barrels of explosives in an attempt to kill Vercetti. Vercetti, however, continues to pursue him to the end of the block, where the man jumps off the roof and on to a skip, from which he gets into his BF Injection where one of his men are waiting. The two drive off but are followed by Vercetti, who also jumps off the roof and gets on to a nearby scooter or a vehicle of his choice. Vercetti continues to follow them, being shot at along the way (although the PIGs at Vice Point will fight back), as the men drive past the North Point Mall and then to their base on Prawn Island, where the man enters his large run down house.


(Diaz' Mansion, Tommy Vercetti and Ricardo Diaz)

Ricardo Diaz: Come on, baby, go! Yeah! Yeah! Arrrr! Stupid Horse! I'll chop your head off! Grrrr...Who is this dickhead?

Tommy Vercetti: Tommy Vercetti. You remember me.

Ricardo Diaz: Excuse me. I'm a little anxious. Never trust a goddamn horse! You do a good job - you work for me now.

Tommy Vercetti: I work for money.

Ricardo Diaz: As I said, amigo. You work for me now.

Tommy Vercetti: I work...

Ricardo Diaz: Shut up! Some Judas has betrayed me. He thinks I don't know how much money I should be making, but stealing 3% is as good as stealing 100%. No one does this to me. NO ONE. You follow him from his apartement and you see where he goes! Later, we kill him.

(Starfish Island, Tommy.)

Tommy Vercetti: This asshole thinks he can mess with me? If this is the best Vice City has to offer, this is gonna be easy.

(The thief's apartment, The Thief)

The Thief: Ooh, shit!

(The roof, The Thief and Tommy)

The Thief: Loser! Too slow, grandad!

Tommy Vercetti: You better keep running asshole.


The reward for completing the mission is $1,000 and the mission Phnom Penh '86 for Ricardo Diaz is unlocked. The Stubby Shotgun is also unlocked for purchase at the North Point Mall Ammu-Nation Store.


  • The Sharks Thief has the animations of a normal male pedestrian instead of a normal gangster/criminal.
