- "Hola, I am Eduardo Perez!"
Eduardo Perez, formerly known as El Macho, was the main antagonist in the 2013 film Despicable Me 2. Eduardo Perez is the quaternary antagonist in the Life's a Fish and Then You Fry fan fiction story Mind of Evil, alongside Professor Pericles (the main antagonist), Nigel (the secondary antagonist), and Professor Z (the tertiary antagonist). Eduardo serves as Pericles' only human bodyguard and is seen almost constantly with Pericles.
Eduardo appears chubby, but also handsome. Eduardo has black hair behind his head while his forehead is bald with thin combed hair strands on his scalp. Eduardo has large eyebrows and a Mexican-style mustache with hair above his chin, seemingly a small beard. Eduardo also has a large nose, small ears, and relatively small hands. Eduardo commonly wears a reflective red collar and button shirt with blank pants and heeled shoes. Eduardo also wears a gold/bronze chain medallion with an inverted "M", making the letter resemble an "E" for "Eduardo". The medallion originally sported an "M" for "El Macho", his villain alias.
Twenty years ago, Eduardo Perez terrorized Mexico as the villain El Macho. As Gru states, he was ruthless, dangerous, and as the name implies very macho. He was also super strong and could pull off heists using only his bare hands. Allegedly, Eduardo committed suicide by diving into the mouth of an active volcano while riding a shark with 250 pounds of dynamite strapped to his chest. His body was never found. However, in reality, Eduardo faked his death and moved to America, where he married, had a son named Antonio, and became to owner of a Mexican restaurant known as Salsa & Salsa in the Paradise Mall.
At some point, Eduardo's wife died because he mentions to Gru that he knowns "the look of the broken heart all too well" and there is a portrait of him and his wife hanging on the wall his restaurant's kitchen hiding his secret salsa recipe. Eduardo later stole the PX-41 serum from a secret laboratory and planned on using it for his return to the world as a villain.
Despicable Me 2
Mind of Evil
In Mind of Evil, Professor Pericles sends Eduardo Perez to capture Nigel and take him back to his secret headquarters. Eduardo arrives in a 2014 black and grey Freightliner Argosy and uses a large missile (given to him by Pericles) to break into the aviary. Eduardo uses several gas grenades to knockout the security guards and takes the cage Nigel and Gabi are trapped in with him before he leaves. Eduardo soon arrives at the local airport where he sneaks Nigel and Gabi on the plane taking them to Pericles' headquarters in the United States.
Many hours later, the plane arrives at an airport in Miami where Eduardo meets with Professor Z and sneaks Nigel and Gabi back to Pericles' headquarters.
