Enough! We settle this here!
— The Snakehead, right before fighting Carl.

The Snakehead is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as a minor antagonist in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. He is the leader of the Da Nang Boys, and is involved in human trafficking.

Events of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

During the mission The Da Nang Thang, he is killed by Carl Johnson when Carl enters the bridge of the ship, where The Snakehead has been waiting. The Snakehead is armed with a Katana and throws another to Carl with the intent of settling things with a duel. Despite the player being given a Katana, the player can freely choose to shoot or beat Snakehead to death, although even dueling honorably with the Katana is very easy; if the player is accurate enough, it is possible to chop off his head in one slash.
