- “Some insolent Triads stole my beautiful car last night, wrecked it and left it burning! Some of my most precious donkey memorabilia was in the trunk! Real collectibles that are irreplaceable, my friend! I've hidden a throbbing weapon in the edge of Chinatown. Take it and teach and these Triad vandals to fear El Burro's well-endowed wrath! ARRIBA!”
- — El Burro
Claude answers a payphone in Hepburn Heights. El Burro tells Claude that the Triads had stolen a car of Burro's with some of his memorabilia. They then wrecked and burned the car, so El Burro instructs Claude to avenge his Diablo Stallion by killing 25 Triads with a flamethrower. Claude then heads for Chinatown, where El Burro has placed a flamethrower. Claude sets fire to twenty-five Triads and completes the task.
In order to complete the mission the player must:
- Go to Chinatown and pick up the flamethrower
- Burn 25 Triads
The reward for completing the mission is $10,000 (with a $6,000 bonus if the player kills the Triads at the basketball court in Little China Park) and the mission Big'n'Veiny is unlocked. The Triads are now hostile towards Claude (if they're not already due to the player completing Toni Cipriani's mission The Pick-Up).
After the Mission
The Triads will become hostile towards Claude, providing The Pick-Up hasn't already been completed.
- The name of the mission is a reference to trial by ordeal, an ancient judicial practice used to determine the guilt or innocence of the accused by subjecting them to an unpleasant and often dangerous experience.
