Eduardo Perez, also known as his super-villain name El Macho, or simply just Eduardo, is a super-villain mastermind who serves as the main antagonist in Despicable Me 2.



Some 20 years ago, Eduardo terrized Mexico as the super-villain El Macho. He was ruthless, he was dangerous, and as the name implies, very Macho. One day, El Macho apparently commited suicide in the most macho way possible: riding a shark, while holding two pineapple grenades and with 250 pounds of dynamite strapped to his chest, straight into the mouth of an active volcano. A body was never found, only a pile of chest hair.

In reality, El Macho faked his death and had gone into hiding. He moved to America, married, had a son named Antonio, and later owned a very successful Mexican restuaunt named "Salsa y Salsa" in the Paradise Mall.

Eduardo's wife apparently died at some point.

Despicable Me 2Edit

In Despicable Me 2, Eduardo is first seen at the bakery and meets Gru and Lucy. After Eduardo leaves, Gru is suspicious and believes that Eduardo is, indeed, El Macho.
