The Yu Jian (玉劍) is a sword in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. It is the plot item in the game's story.


The sword has been the keeping for the head of the family, a tradition Huang Lee's father made up after winning it in a card game. After the murder of Huang's father, the sword is brought from Hong Kong to Liberty City to the family's new patriarch, Wu "Kenny" Lee, Huang's uncle. Kenny initially wanted to give the sword to the head of the Triads organizations, Hsin Jaoming, in order to become Hsin's successor. However, Kenny ordered to the Wonsu Nodong gang to steal the sword and kill Huang.

After Huang arrived at Kenny's restaurant, he started to work for various people in order to find out where the sword was.

At the end of the story, Huang, with the help of Wade Heston, finds out that Kenny stole the sword. Kenny escapes from the two and arrives to Hsin's place, where he stabs Hsin, injuring him heavily. In that moment, Huang arrives to the place, Kenny attacks Huang with the Yu Jian sword, but Huang manages to kill him, and finally retake the sword.


  • The sword acts quite similarly to the Heroin in The Lost and Damned and the Diamonds in The Ballad of Gay Tony in the sense that it is the plot item, and that the character has to work to get it back. The main difference is that the sword is a weapon, and that it is personal for Huang, while the Heroin and the Diamonds are business for the others.
  • Yu Jian means "Jade Sword" in Chinese.
