Antonio Perez is the tertiary antagonist in Despicable Me 2. He is the son of Eduardo Perez (otherwise known as El Macho) and the first known love interest of Margo Gru, much to the disapproval of Felonius Gru (Margo's adoptive father).


Antonio is a handsome Mexican young boy with short black hair that is swept to the left side, brown eyes and a Spanish accent.

He wears a black leather jacket, a purple shirt that has the letter Z on it, blue denim jeans that is curled up at the feet, black Macbeth sneakers and he wears a scarf like Felonius Gru except Antonio's scarf is blue, it doesn't have stripes and he wears it like a tie.


Antonio is a charming and arrogant boy who can be seductive and smooth towards girls as shown when Margo Gru sees him at the mall and takes interest in him. Like Margo, he is sarcastic and sassy towards Felonius Gru when he tries to protect Margo from Antonio.


Despicable Me 2

Antonio first appears when Margo Gru meets him at the mall and she immediately develops a crush on him, much to Felonius Gru's annoyance that he does everything he can to come between them.

Near the end of the movie, Antonio and Margo go to the Cinco-de-Mayo party together where they proceed to dance as Gru tries to stop them, but he fails. After Gru comes back from El Macho's hideout, he sees Margo depressed because Antonio left her for another girl. Gru encouraged her by saying that Margo was better off without him as she realized he was right. Not long after she left, a vengeful Gru encases Antonio in a block of ice with his freeze ray in return for breaking Margo's heart.

After his father was arrested, it is unknown on what happened to Antonio as he has not been seen or heard ever since, but it is possible that he was taken to a foster home.


  • Antonio dreams of playing video games for a living.
  • It is unknown if Antonio was aware of his father's villainous identity or not.
  • Antonio wants to be free without rules as he told Felonius Gru "There are no rules señor, it's Cinco De Mayo!".
