Your operation causes problem for me. I want to expand into Blaine County, but your business and your temperament prevent me from making inroads.
~ Wei Cheng to Trevor Phillips on the phone

Wei Cheng is one of the two secondary antagonists (alongside Harold "Stretch" Joseph) of Grand Theft Auto V. He is a Chinese gang lord who is the nefarious leader of the Los Santos Triads. His attempts to expand his operations into Blaine County are interrupted several times by Trevor Phillips, leading Cheng to seek retribution against him.

He was voiced by George Cheung.

Biography

Cheng sends his son Tao and his translator to carry out a business deal with drug kingpin Trevor Philips, looking to expand his business of running guns and drugs out in the country side of San Andreas. The deal does not go over as planned, however, as Trevor's meth lab is attacked by a Mexican rival gang, the Varrios Los Aztecas, which results in a massive shootout and many Aztecas (including Ortega if he was not killed during the Lost MC massacre) killed by Trevor and his associate Chef. Due to this, Cheng decides Trevor is too reckless and unpredictable and decides to make the deal with his rivals, the O'Neil Brothers (led by Elwood O'Neil) instead. Upon learning this information, an enraged Trevor storms the O'Neil family farm and slaughters all the brothers on the premises (aside from Elwood, Walton, and Wynn), effectively ruining Cheng's plans for expansion.

Later, in retaliation to the murder of Elwood, Cheng has Michael De Santa kidnapped by his men in an attempt to blackmail Trevor into handing over his meth and gun businesses, mistakingly believing that the two are gay lovers. However at the time, Trevor and Michael had had a falling out after Trevor discovered the full extent of Michael's cooperation with the federal government. It quickly becomes clear to the Triad boss that Trevor has no interest in Michael's safety and orders him killed anyway by having him chopped up in a meat packing facility by a moving bone saw. However, Franklin Clinton comes to Michael's rescue and kills many of Cheng's men in their escape.

It is possible for Trevor to call Cheng after this who then tells him that Michael was freed, which enrages Trevor.

Ending

In the end, Franklin is given the choice to kill Michael, Trevor or take their chances going up against all their enemies once and for all. If Franklin chooses to attack their enemies, Cheng is on the gang's list of loose ends (which also includes Harold "Stretch" Joseph, a Family OG-turned-Ballas gangster, Steve Haines, a corrupt FIB agent and Devin Weston, a business tycoon), because of his animosity towards Trevor after the deaths of the O'Neil brothers. Franklin carries out the hit on Cheng, Trevor having already decided to kill Haines (whom he hated from the minute he saw him), and Michael volunteering to kill Stretch on the basis that he is not a known associate of Stretch. With the help of the gang's heist planner and expert hacker Lester Crest, he locates Cheng on the road in a convoy by the Pacific Bluffs Beach Club with several armed guards and his son Tao. Franklin can choose to use a sticky bomb by detonating it on Cheng's car, killing him and his son. It is confirmed that Option C is the canon choice, so Wei is dead, but Tao is confirmed to be alive.

Legacy

Wei Cheng, although not mentioned, does get some sort of legacy. His brother takes over his criminal empire and mentors Tao, while his daughter Georgina becomes CEO of his legitimate business, Cheng Family Holdings. Tao indirectly mentions his father's death in The Diamond Casino & Resort.

Trivia

  • Cheng was at first the main antagonist towards Trevor through the beginning of his campaign, but this later changes as Trevor began working for the true main villains later on.
  • His name may be a reference to Wei Shen, the protagonist of Sleeping Dogs, released by Square Enix and United Front in 2012.
  • Wei Cheng, alongside Stretch and Massimo Torini, is one of the few Grand Theft Auto major antagonists to have just two appearances in their game.
