Kanbu Bust-out is a mission in Grand Theft Auto III given to protagonist Claude by Yakuza co-leader Kenji Kasen from his casino in Torrington, Staunton Island, Liberty City.



Kenji Kasen informs Claude that a high ranking member of the Yakuza has been arrested by the Liberty City Police Department and that Claude will be breaking him out. Claude takes a police car to 8-Balls Autos, getting the car rigged with a time bomb. Claude drives to the police headquarters and parks the car next to the cells, before detonating the bomb. Claude and Kanbu then steal a police vehicle to escape the police station before changing cars to lose the pursuing police. After losing the police, Claude takes Kanbu to the Hyaku Dojo.


Kenji Kasen: My sister speaks highly of you, though I am yet to be convinced that a gaijin can offer anything but disappointment. Perhaps you can help deal with a situation that has me at a disadvantage. Of course failure has its own disgrace. A Yakuza Kanbu is in custody awaiting transfer for trial. Kenji: He is a valued member of the family. Break him out of custody and get him to the dojo at Bedford Point.


The reward for completing the mission is $30,000. The mission Grand Theft Auto for Kenji Kasen is unlocked after completing the mission.


  • The name Kanbu refers either to his rank in the Yakuza, or it is his actual name, though it is not stated.
  • The cell Kanbu is in had blood marks all over the wall, insinuating either he killed someone to defend himself in the cell, or police brutality. The position of the hand marks and blood may also suggest prison rape.
  • The same blood marks are also seen in the bathroom of Apartment 3C.
