He is also much more dark-skinned and fatter during the era. He wears a gray hoodie with a "NEW YORK" symbol near the chest mark, a blue bodywarmer, green trousers, brown hiking books and brown skiing sunglasses. He is also shown to be covered in dirt.
TK meets The Mexican during a trip to Coney Island with Slink, a business partner of The Mexican from long back. Slink recommended TK as a driver for The Mexican, only for him to see TK as a "skinny little girl". It is revealed that The Mexican had a driver before TK, but due to an unknown incident involving the driver, he punished the driver by driving him around in the boot of his modified Rosalita.
The Mexican later sets up a motorcycle race between TK and his old driver, who The Mexican decided to give one last chance. After winning the race, The Mexican gives TK a few more missions, where TK helps The Mexican win back his Rosalita, and helping two racers he betted on to win a race.
After helping Corrigan's gang kidnap cocaine dealer Rafael Martinez, The Mexican later helps TK gain the ransom money from the Colombians, by driving a modified truck to help TK kill off waves upon waves of attacking Colombians. After arriving with the ransom, Corrigan kills Martinez and then betrays TK by framing him for the murder.
Sometime before 2006, The Mexican had become an alcoholic, becoming dillusioned with his share of ransom money and instead used it to buy constant amounts of alcohol, eventually getting a job at an exchange counter in the House of Fun Arcade. However, despite this, The Mexican still had a strong gang, and was still in touch with Corrigan. TK, in his quest for revenge, sees The Mexican as the weakest of the gang, and decides to kill him off first. After [Ray Davies|Ray]] reveals The Mexican's location to TK, he sets off to kill The Mexican alone, promising to buy Ray cappuccino after finishing the job.
TK arrives at the exchange counter in the House of Fun Arcade, armed with a pistol. However, The Mexican does not recognize TK, confusing him for a robber after TK holds him at gunpoint. TK tells him that he does know him, but he does not remember. This causes The Mexican to recognize TK, causing him to flee the arcade with a shotgun and eventually, onto an L-Train, with TK following the train by car. Eventually, the train stops at an abandoned park on Coney Island, where The Mexican informs his gunmen to kill TK. However, TK manages to overcome The Mexican, killing him. Later that day, TK disposes off The Mexican's body to Corrigan in Greenwich Village, informing him that TK's manhunt has begun.
