Benjamin King is a character in Saints Row and Saints Row IV.[10][11]

My name is Benjamin muthafuckin' King. I'm the man who took my crew from being a bunch of baby gangstas in Sunnyvale to being one of the most influential and feared forces in the god damn city.

Description Edit

SR1 promo King

Promotional artwork of Benjamin King in Saints Row.

In Saints Row, Benjamin King is the founder and leader of the Vice Kings, one of three enemy gangs. The Vice Kings have been active in Stilwater since the '70s,[3] where King formed the gang alongside best friend Julius to counter the Carnales' encroachment on their neighborhood of Sunnyvale. After King grew accustomed to power and refused to give it up, Julius retired to Saint's Row while King expanded his criminal empire.[13]

By the events of Saints Row, the Vice Kings' demesne encompasses most of northern Stilwater. Under King, the Vice Kings control prostitution and gambling rings, hold numerous protection rackets, and have turned their attention to more legitimate business ventures, such as the music industry's Kingdom Come Records. King has become a "public darling" through his philanthropy[3] and, in order to solidify his grip on the city, he works alongside the corrupt mayoral candidate Alderman Richard Hughes[14][15] and Police Chief Monroe,[16][17] forming a steady relationship with the Stilwater Police Department.

Described as both "a professional [and] a bad ass",[18] Benjamin King exercises patience and commands the respect of his crew. After his enforcer Anthony Green is killed,[19] however, King is soon betrayed by his two remaining lieutenants, Tanya Winters and Warren Williams, who stage a coup.[12] King escapes[20] and forms a temporary alliance with his old friend Julius; with the help of the 3rd Street Saints, he finishes off what remains of the Vice Kings.[21][22]

With his influence on the city concluded, King obliges Julius and leaves the city.[23] He writes a novel based on these events, Regicide: The Rise and Fall of the Vice Kings, sometime before Saints Row 2,[24] which has been adapted into a movie at the time of Saints Row: The Third.[25]

King returns in Saints Row IV, working alongside the 3rd Street Saints once again. King now has a shaved head and wears a scarf coloured Vice Kings yellow.[26] The player is required to rescue him in a quest called "King of Stilwater" with the description "To get back your Chief of Staff, you'll have to revisit your mutual past".[27]

History Edit

Saints Row Edit

BenAndJules photo

Benjamin King's photo of him and Julius back in the '70s.[28] The image is based on a real-life 1974 photo of two men in a Chicago ghetto.[29]

In the 1970s, childhood friends Benjamin King and Julius Little formed the Vice Kings to fight back against Los Carnales, who had swept through their neighborhood of Sunnyvale, demanding protection fees, pushing drugs, and bringing gang warfare to the streets. King organized the kids in Sunnyvale to stand up for themselves, and "fueled by their desire to take back their neighborhood, the Vice Kings surged". Sunnyvale was liberated from the Carnales in a matter of days but King, who had grown accustomed to power, continued to battle the Carnales for control over the rest of Stilwater. Julius, unhappy with his friend's decision, decided to retire to Saint's Row.[13]

In the following years, King increased his gang's influence and income, and decided to focus on "legitimate business ventures" instead of his criminal empire. This allowed the Carnales to regain their strength and a new gang, the Westside Rollerz, soon formed. The three gangs fought against each other, but once the violence spilled into Saint's Row, Julius was forced to follow King's footsteps, and thus started the 3rd Street Saints in an attempt to quell all the other gangs in the city.[13]

As King cultivated his gang, he employed Anthony Green, "an old friend [...] from back in the day", as his enforcer and "go-to" guy, and Warren Williams, a "second rate rapper turned third rate gangster", to run Kingdom Come Records, the Vice Kings' record label. Tanya Winters, once nothing more than a "small time hooker", managed to be put in charge of the Vice Kings' brothel at the Raykins Hotel due to her relationship with Green. During this time, Chief Monroe had an undercover officer infiltrate the 3rd Street Saints; during the officer's preliminary report on the four gangs, he noted how Monroe doesn't want him investigating the Vice Kings any further, hinting at King's close relationship with the Stilwater Police Department.[3]

Don't let his philanthropy fool you; this guy is the same banger he was in the 70's,[sic] he just traded in his bandana[sic] for a suit and tie.
Undercover officer, during their report on the Vice Kings to Chief Monroe.[3]

During the year leading up to the events of Saints Row, King improves his public persona, going from a feared gang leader to a "public darling" through his philanthropy. The Stilwater Post did a human interest story on him, but the undercover officer noted his absolute distrust of him during his report on the Vice Kings.[3]

The Vice Kings are named after one guy: Benjamin King. That shit don't happen unless you're a professional or a bad ass, and in King's case, he's both.

Always Use Protection Benjamin King Warren Williams

Benjamin King tells Warren Williams to calm down after the loss of Kingdom Come Records.[1]

King first becomes aware of the 3rd Street Saints after they destroy the Kingdom Come Records building and apparently kill Aisha, causing millions of dollars in loss of revenue.[31] King remains completely calm as he is informed of the incident, much to the chagrin of his lieutenant Warren Williams. After then being informed by Tanya Winters of the 3rd Street Saints' seizure of Prawn Court, King states that he will call in a few favors and have Kingdom Come Records rebuilt, and have Chief of Police Richard Monroe put pressure on the Saints, allowing the Vice Kings to take back their territory.[1]

The 3rd Street Saints fight back[32] and eventually head to an abandoned police station to find and kill Tanya. There, Johnny Gat and The Protagonist are ambushed by Anthony Green, who reveals that it was a trap devised by King. They capture Gat but The Protagonist escapes. An eager Warren Williams insists on taking further action, but King is currently content with Julius' lieutenant captured and the police out for the Saints.[33]

For King and Country Benjamin King Warren Williams

Benjamin King barely escapes his office alive during the coup.[20]

After Green is killed and Gat is rescued, Gat and The Protagonist dress up as Vice Kings and cause chaos downtown, destroying The Pride of Stilwater.[34] Furthermore, they kill the policemen on King's payroll and destroy the Kingdom Come Records building again,[12] straining King's relationship with Alderman Richard Hughes and Chief Monroe. Warren Williams, who is upset with King's refusal to get into drug dealing[35] and who now believes King to be selfish,[36] stages a coup with Tanya Winters and other disloyal gang members.[12]

Fuck! Listen carefully, playa. Benjamin King just called. It seems like one of his boys got a big head and tried to take him out. He's pinned down in the park right now and needs some help. Now, what happens to King may not mean shit to you, but him and me, we got history. I owe King from way back in the day, and he ain't gonna eat it if I can help it. You're gonna go out there and save his ass, understand? I ain't fucking around, playa. You bring King back here safe, you feel me?
— Julius, briefly informing The Protagonist of his and King's past, and ordering The Protagonist to save King.[20]

The King and I Benjamin King Julius Little The Protagonist Johnny Gat

Benjamin King meets with Julius, The Protagonist, and Johnny Gat at their church.[21]

King flees and requests help from Julius. The Protagonist soon arrives under orders from Julius and rescues him, and together they go to the Saints' headquarters, leaving Warren for dead along the way.[20]

After a discussion with his old friend Julius, King accepts to walk away from Stilwater; but only once he's dealt with Tanya, who has now taken control over what remains of the Vice Kings. With The Protagonist, King lures several remaining gang members to police ambush points, paving the way to Tanya. King laments that The Protagonist never joined the Vice Kings instead, believing that they could have owned the city.[22]

All the King's Men Benjamin King 2

In his final appearance with The Protagonist, Benjamin King thanks them for all their help and gives them the keys to his penthouse.[22]

Finally, alongside The Protagonist and Johnny Gat, King heads to his old penthouse to finish off Tanya. After getting the codes to the elevator from Stefan, the three fight their way through the remnants of the Vice Kings and King personally kills Tanya, sending her plummeting to her death from his office. Outside the penthouse, King gives The Protagonist the keys to the building and walks away.[22]

Later, as Benjamin King prepares to board a private jet and leave the city, he briefly glimpses at an old photo of himself and Julius in their early days.[28] During Richard Hughes speech to The Protagonist prior to the yacht blowing up, King can be back in Stilwater, leaning against his car with his thoughts.[23]

Saints Row IV Edit

King returns in Saints Row IV once again working with the 3rd Street Saints, having appeared in the "Meet the President"[37][11] and "War for Humanity"[2] trailers. In the intermittent time between the two games, he has written Regicide: The Rise and Fall of the Vice Kings,[24] a novel based on the events of Saints Row that has been adapted into a movie.[25]

Five years after the events of Saints Row: The Third, King helps The Protagonist become elected as President of the United States, with King becoming Chief of Staff. At the start, King and Pierce disapproved of The Protagonist's reckless verbal missteps that alienated part of America. Then suddenly, when the alien Zin invade, King and Pierce are among those who are abducted. [38]

King is placed in his own virtual simulation, where he experiences the betrayal of Anthony and Tanya and being killed by them on and on. When The Protagonist arrives to rescue King, they first kill Anthony but Tanya escapes into the virtual Steelport. The Protagonist then informed their plan to reunite the Saints and kill Zinyak. King then exclaimed, "That's not a plan, that's a goal!" They then start arguing, which escalates to when King points out that The Protagonist needed his help in their election campaign. [39]

Gameplay Edit

Saints Row Edit

King appears as a Homie in the final three missions of the Vice Kings storyline, first when he is rescued,[20] as well as the following two missions.[21][22]

King drives a Mag; it is used during the mission "All the King's Men" and unlocked in the Garage after completion of that mission.

In addition to Kingdom Come Records, King owns a Penthouse in the Downtown district which is unlocked as a Crib after completion of the Vice Kings storyline.
He also owns King's Grocery, which is used by the Vice Kings as a stronghold to stockpile weapons. It is still under construction during the fall of the Vice Kings, but is a fully operational, albeit inaccessible, grocery store when The Protagonist awakes from the coma.

During the mission "For King and Country", King has 2000 hitpoints and is armed with an AR-40 Xtnd and Hand Grenades.
During the mission "The King and I", King has 750 hitpoints and is armed with a GDHC .50.
During the mission "All the King's Men", King has 1000 hitpoints and is armed with a Tombstone.

Saints Row IV Edit

King appears briefly during gameplay in "The Saints Wing" in which he along with Pierce are abducted by the Zin.

King appears in several story missions, first when the player has to save him from his own simulation [40] in which unlocks him as a homie and also makes him a crew member of The Ship. He has his own loyalty mission which is required to unlock the full ending for the game.[41]. Later in the story the player escorts King along with Pierce Washington defending them from Zin[42] which is similar to the Heli Assault activity.

In the Grand Finale, King can be chosen to participate in either of the three missions. He will be teamed up alongside Johnny Gat. If selected for Grand Finale Part Two, friendly Vice Kings will arrive to assist him.

Angela Edit

Angela is Benjamin King's sister. She is never seen throughout the Saints Row series but is alluded to twice in Saints Row IV. When talked to on the Ship after he is saved,[40] King may say, "If only Angela could see me now. My sister would never believe any of this."[5]

Julius Little's third Audio Log elaborates on her fate; he states how he has few regrets — "You make your choices [and] you live with 'em" — but is remorseful over how things ended for her — "It was all fun and games for her. She wanted to be just like Benjamin... I shouldn't have let her get in so deep."[6]

  • Benjamin uses a .45 Fletcher when called in as a Homie.

Quotes Edit

Everybody, calm the fuck down. We ain't gonna start a war every time some muthafuckas act hard.
— King, upon learning of Kingdom Come Records' destruction and the loss of Prawn Court.[1]

Warren Williams: "So what do we do now?"
Benjamin King: "We wait."
Warren Williams: "Hold on, dawg, that muthafucka is still out there. The fuck you mean, we wait?"
Benjamin King: "I mean, you're gonna sit your black ass down and wait 'cause I fuckin' said so. Don't worry 'bout the one that got away, the 5-0 will take care of him."
Warren Williams: "Oh, so while you loungin', Tre Street keeps jackin' us. That's great, that's... that's fuckin' brilliant."
Benjamin King: "Slow up, little nigga."
Warren Williams and King, after Anthony Green captures Johnny Gat.[33]

Warren Williams: "You've been puttin' yourself before the crew..."
Benjamin King: "Keep talkin', little nigga..."
— Warren Williams and King, just before Warren starts his coup.[12]

Julius: "You got a choice. You can keep your fuckin' pride and die right now, or you can be a man and walk away."
Benjamin King: "When did you get the balls, Jules?"
Julius: "What's it gonna be?"
Benjamin King: "I ain't walkin' away."
Julius: "Fair enough. Johnny."
Benjamin King: "I ain't walkin' away until I deal with Tanya."
Julius: "My nigga."
Julius and King, discussing the latter's future.[21]

So, does Julius ever talk about growing up in Sunnyvale? What, you thought he was from the Row? The problem with burying the past is that you forget about it, you know what I'm sayin'? I bet Julius gave you the whole "I don't care what flags they're flyin'" speech, didn't he? I wrote that shit years ago, and the motherfucker still hasn't forgot it...
— King, discussing Julius' past with The Protagonist.[21]

You're easy to talk to, you know that? I don't gotta worry about you interrupting me or any of that bullshit. That was Warren's problem... that motherfucker never knew when to shut up and just listen...
— King, noting The Protagonist's silence.[21]

Ya know that even if you wipe out the Vice Kings it ain't gonna be over, right? There's always someone lookin' to take what you have... some punk who wants to make a name for himself, some girl you fucked and never called back... The fact is, once you're in the game, the only way you're getting out is if you're dead or in jail.
— King, ominously foreshadowing later events in the Saints Row series while talking to The Protagonist.[21]

Way to go, son. It's a shame Julius found you first. We coulda owned this town.
The King and I Benjamin King
— King, lamenting on what could have been if The Protagonist had joined the Vice Kings over the 3rd Street Saints.[21]

Johnny Gat: "I've been chattin' with King, and it looks like Tanya's takeover didn't sit so well with everybody. The Vice Kings are fighting amongst themselves; now's the time to take 'em out for good. King said he was gonna come along, I hope he hasn't gone soft."
Benjamin King: "Don't ever worry 'bout me, baby-boy, 'cause I'm gonna handle mine."
Johnny Gat: "All I'm sayin' is that since you got here you've been nothin' but talk."
Benjamin King: "I've smoked dozens of fools before. I ain't addin' to the count unless I have to."
Johnny Gat: "That's just fuckin' great."
Benjamin King: "I said don't worry about it."
Johnny Gat: "I don't want you bitchin' out when you see your crew."
Benjamin King: "Ain't my crew, son. That's why I'm here, remember? So how 'bout you put your dick away, pick up your gun, and try to keep your knee away from the bullets."
— Johnny Gat and King, before they head off to kill Tanya Winters and end the Vice Kings.[22]

Stefan: "You and your friend with the awful hair will release Stefan at once!"
Benjamin King: "Your bitch ass better stop talking in the third person or I'm gonna drop you on principle..."
Stefan and King, as the latter interrogates the former by dangling him out of a car window.[22]

Benjamin King: "Okay, there it is. The first thing we gotta do is clear a path to the elevator."
Johnny Gat: "What then?"
Benjamin King: "Then we kill Tanya."
Johnny Gat: "My kind of plan."
— King and Johnny Gat, as they and The Protagonist near Tanya.[22]

Audio LogsEdit

I built, I watched, and then I acted. That's how I brought the Vice Kings up to be one of the strongest crews in Stilwater. Only problem was my lieutenants didn't have the same patience. That bitch Tanya drove a wedge between Tony and Warren. Then she convinced Warren to try and take me out, only to stab him in the back and take it all for herself. I may have lost the Vice Kings, but killin' her almost made it worth the trouble. Good thing the playa was there to help.
King Audio Log 043
— King Audio Log 1
After the fall of the Vice Kings, I figured it was time to get out of the game. Livin' the life I had, I didn't want all that experience to go to waste. Figured a book would allow me to work out my demons and show the world what the game took from me. Didn't know it'd take off so well. Shit, if I'd known back then what I do now, probably would of gone legit sooner.
King Audio Log 292
— King Audio Log 2
I always knew the Saints were ambitious, but I never thought I'd see them end up in the White House. And when the playa called me saying how they couldn't do it without me, how could I say no. Thought maybe I was in line for Vice President, but I guess Keith beat me to it. Still, being the President's Chief of Staff certainly had its perks. Not bad for a kid from Sunnyvale Gardens.

Ben King: "People don't realize what being in a gang takes from you. If I got even one kid off the street it was all worth it."
Pierce: "Right, but ahh..."

Ben King: "There's always room to keep growing. No need to keep putting yourself in front of bullets day in and day out."
Shaundi: "Given our current situation, not seeing much of a choice right now."
Ben King: "Well not now of course. But in the future, take some time for yourself, for a family, for a safer life."

Matt Miller: "True, I imagine it was much worse when you were just a thug trying to make a name for yourself in a world of crime and vice."
Ben King: "A thug? Are you saying that I was just a thug back in Stilwater?"

Phillipe: "Perhaps it would have been more useful if your book warned against going toe-to-toe with the Saints instead of spouting all that propaganda about the dangers of organised crime."
