Grand Finale Part Two Grand Finale Part Four

Grand Finale Part Three is the penultimate mission in Saints Row IV.


The Punch the Shark quest is split into four different missions.

The first three Missions have a choice between 3 pairs of Homies: Johnny Gat and Ben King, Pierce and Shaundi, Matt and Asha - any of those may be homies during this Mission, but each pair can only be used once for the entire Quest.

The third mission of the quest takes part on Zinyak's ship as Playa boards with his final set of two homies. Playa fights through waves of Zin until they reach a locked door. One homies volunteers to hack into it so Playa must defend them with their other homie against oncoming Murderbots and Zin. Once they are done Playa orders them to get back to the ship while they go into the armoury and find power armour which gives them their powers back.

The end of this mission part involves Playa flying through a large vent. Playa must avoid lasers and debris, where a blast shield blocks the path for Playa and the Saints Spaceship from passing. The Protagonst has to destroy blast shield locks and continue navigating the vent to reach the throne room.

  • This quest is made up for 4 missions, which are visible in the quest log. After each mission, it is possible to save and resume from that mission. During Grand Finale Part Three Grand Finale Part Four it is possible to exit the mission and resume it from the Quests menu. After completing side-quest missions, or saving and reloading, the current Grand Finale mission is auto-started.
  • Between Shaundi, Matt Miller and Johnny Gat, Johnny is the only one who fails to hack into the Armoury computer, and decides to shoot the system to get it open, but he does not actually shoot the computer and the doors open as if they were hacked.
  • This is one of the few missions where C.I.D bots and Super-Powered Zin are used in the real world.
  • When Playa enters the room with "The Iron Saint" power armor and equips it, the sequence is a reference to how Isaac Clarke equips his armor in Dead Space.
  • The line Male Voice 1, 2, and Nolan North says after putting on the suit, is similar to Master Chief's line "Finishing this fight" in the ending of Halo 2.[reference?]
  • The song "The Touch" by Stan Bush plays when Playa gains the power armor and the conversation between Playa and Zinyak during the freefall segment, are both a direct reference to the 1986 Transformers movie between Megatron and Optimus Prime.

Kinzie: "To get to Zinyak's throne room you'll need a space suit and some weapons for destroying the ship's outer defenses. The schematics show an armory not too far in. I'd head there and see what you can find."

Female 2: "Leave it me. Have you gathered the others?"
Female 3: "Don't sweat it now. Do you have the others?"
Male 1: "Oh, is that all? Easy enough. You pick the others up?"

Johnny Gat: "Or that'll help blow shit up."
Pierce: "So something big and has a lot of flashy buttons?"
Matt Miller: "So whatever they labeled "Key to Zinyak's lair"?"
Female 1: "Sure, that'd do it."
Female 2: "That goes without saying."
Female 3: "Sweetie, if you see that, you'll have to beat me to it."
Male 1: "Yeah, that would probably do the trick."
Male 2: "Shit, if you find that, take it."
Male 3: "Heh. Sure."
Nolan North: "Yeah, that would probably do the trick."
Johnny Gat: "Sounds good to me."
Pierce: "I mean, there could be a button for self destruct, or one that activates a Zin-killing virus, or even..."
Matt Miller: "I doubt it'll be that simple."
Ben King: "But do we know what that's gonna be?"
Shaundi: "Pierce, it's not going to have flashy buttons on it."
Asha: "Matt, you're not helping."
Female 1: "Wouldn't turn down a robot."
Female 2: "A robot would be useful."
Female 3: "Sure could use a robot."
Male 1: "I'm hoping it'll be a robot."
Male 2: "I wouldn't mind a robot."
Male 3: "What're the odds on a robot?"
Nolan North: "I'm hoping it'll be a robot."
Kinzie: "A robot wouldn't help you in space. What you'd need is--"
Female 1: "A rocket-tank?"
Female 2: "A satellite with giant laser beams?"
Female 3: "Good old-fashioned hospitality?"
Male 1: "Let me guess, power armor."
Male 2: "Power armor. Yes, I know."
