"It's far too late for that, Marty. You had your chance, but now I'm taking over the business... LOSER!!"
―Carl killing Marty Chonks

Carlos, also known as Carl, is a minor character in the game Grand Theft Auto III only seen in the mission "Her Lover". He is a loan shark living in Portland, Liberty City and the lover of Mrs. Chonks.



Carl, the former lover of Marty Chonks' wife, is angry over her death and is looking for revenge.[1] Agreeing to meet Marty at the Bitch'n' Dog Food Factory[2], he successfully avoids Marty's trap by killing him with a concealed shotgun, effectively taking over Marty's business.[3] Carl can be killed by Claude as he walks away from Marty's corpse. However, the Love Media website suggests that the conglomerate owns the Bitchin' Dog Food Factory.[4]
