Antonio Perez 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). He appears in Despicable Me 2.


Antonio is a male who is Latin-American descent with short black hair that has bangs swept to the left side, brown eyes and thin eyebrows.

He wears a dark purple t-shirt with a dark gray scarf, a black blazer, blue jeans and black shoes with gray details.


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. He even can be mean-spirited as shown in an instance when he tries to protect Margo from Gru, He kicks Gru in the crotch.


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 and is dancing with another girl. Gru tells her she is way better off without him and Margo leaves with Gru, but a vengeful Gru encases Antonio in a block of ice with his freeze ray for breaking Margo's heart and not explaining why. Antonio's new girlfriend is shocked by what happened and tries to pull her hand out, but fails.

After his father was arrested, it is unknown on what happened to Antonio as he has not been seen or heard from ever since (with him last being seen trapped inside a block of ice created by Gru's freeze ray), but it is possible that he was taken to a foster home (seeing as how he has no other relatives aside from his mother who has not been seen or mentioned in the movie) or he was arrested by the Anti-Villain League (where they possibly learned that Antonio is the son of the infamous supervillain (El Macho) they are after).


  • Antonio dreams of playing video games for a living.
  • Maria Perez (Antonio's mother) is never seen nor mentioned.
  • It is unknown if Antonio was aware of his father's villainous identity or not.
  • It is unknown how Antonio broke up with Margo Gru when he was seen dancing with another girl.
    • It is also unknown if Antonio ever got out of the block of ice that Felonius Gru trapped him in with his Freeze Ray for breaking Margo's heart.
  • Antonio wants to be free without rules as he told Gru "There are no rules señor, it's Cinco De Mayo!".
