Mike: "Very well, I'll do this, but it's the last job I do for you, Asuka. After this, I'm going my own way."

Mike and Asuka Kasen

Bad Pimpin' is a mission in Grand Theft Auto Advance, given to protagonist Mike by Yakuza co-leader Asuka Kasen from her mansion in Bedford Point on Staunton Island, Liberty City.


Asuka has discovered the identity of the explosive expert involved in the death of Mike's old partner Vinnie. However, before she will tell Mike she wants him to take care of a pimp who has been stalking some of her prostitutes. Mike drives to the pimps location in Newport and kills the pimp and his associate.

After killing the pimp and his associates Mike returns to Asuka's home, who proclaims her love towards him and persuades first reluctant Mike to have sex with her. Mike leaves later on, not able to feel his legs, and decides to follow-up on Asuka's lead into Vinnie's killer.

He drives to a building in Torrington and finds the explosives expert dead on the floor. He finds a message from someone, which tells him to go to the Wichita Gardens area of Shoreside Vale. With no other information, Mike decides to go to Shoreside Vale. However, as he begins to drive away he is attacked by the Mafia, unhappy at their men being kidnapped and shipped to Asia. The Liberty City Police Department also begin to chase Mike, who uses the Pay 'n' Spray to lose them. He then drives over the Shoreside Lift Bridge to Shoreside Vale. After this Mike refuses to do any more work for Asuka.

At Asuka's mansion in Bedford Point.
Asuka Kasen: Mike-san, I have the information you've been waiting for. It's about the bomber who had his dealings with your partner Vinnie. There is, however, one thing you must do before I give you this information. There's a pimp in town who's been stalking my working girls and causing havoc to my hostess business. Take him out and then report back here for the information I promised.
Mike: All this trouble over one pimp? Why don't you send one of your regular goons? And what the hell is a snack bar?
Asuka Kasen: This guy's no pushover and my people are having to deal mostly with the gang war between the Mafia and us. In Japan, snack bars are hostess clubs where you can go to get a quick nibble and sing karaoke.
Mike: I still don't see what snacks, girls, and karaoke have to do with each other but whatever. Very well I'll do this but it's the last job I do for you, Asuka. After this, I'm going my own way.
Asuka Kasen: I don't see how you can live without me, Mike-san. We'll see what happens.
Mike leaves Asuka's mansion and drives to Newport.
Mike: Time to slap that pimp around and rescue some hookers in distress. A modern day fairy tale.
Mike saves on of the prostitutes while he kills the pimp's bodyguards.
Prostitute #1: I ain't gonna work for you, pimp. Get your hands off me! Help! Help!
Mike saves on of the prostitutes while he kills the pimp's bodyguards.
Prostitute #2: If this were in Nevada, this crap would be legal... What the hell? Damn, pimp, leave me alone!
Mike saves on of the prostitutes while he kills the pimp's bodyguards.
Prostitute #3: I came here to become a star, now look at me, Mike! We coulda been good together.
After killing the pimp and his bodyguards.
Asuka Kasen (pager): Nicely done, Mike-san. Hurry home to me, darling. Asuka.
Mike returns to Asuka's mansion.
Asuka Kasen: Mike-san, you've satisfied every desire I've asked of you. I have one last request before you leave me, perhaps forever.
Mike: No, Asuka! I haven't any patience for more negotiation. Tell me about the bomber and then I'm out of here!
Asuka Kasen: Mike-san, be a good boy and listen. I've lusted for you from the moment I saw you. Come to me in my bedchamber... Unless, that is, you're not attracted to the opposite sex?
Mike: No man can resist that challenge. Lead on... Leave the whips on the wall though.
Mike leaves Asuka's mansion.
Mike: I can't feel my legs. Gotta concentrate and think mean, violent thoughts. Okay bomber, I'm coming for you now.
Mike finds the explosive expert.
Mike: Damn, what a mess. Looks like somebody beat me to him. What the hell am I going to do now? Wait a second, there's a message on his pager: 'I need another job like the Callahan Point bombing. Meet me on Shoreside in the Wichita Garden District.' Callahan Point? Sounds like he's talking about the car bomb that killed Vinnie. Well, this is the only lead I have. I'd better go check it out.
Mike drives to Shoreside Vale.
Asuka Kasen (pager): Taihen, Mike-san! The Mafia knows you're behind their men being captured. Better flee to Shoreside! Suki. Asuka.
Asuka Kasen (pager): The police are after you for the bomber's murder! Watch out! Asuka.
