Despicable Me Wiki

El Macho's Lair is a hidden lair located inside Eduardo Perez's mansion.


During Eduardo's Cinco de Mayo party, Gru, suspicious that Eduardo was El Macho, decided to follow him after the two men had a short conversation. Gru followed Eduardo into a room with an illuminated dance floor that was booby-trapped with axes, spears, and flamethrowers. To get past the room and into the main lair, a combination code matching the tones of La Cucaracha had to be entered using the tiles of the dance floor. The lair itself contained a long bridge and a laboratory. It also housed El Macho's Magnet Ship, and cages for the Evil Minions.

Appearances in Other Media[]

El Macho's Lair is seen in the game, Minion Rush.



  • Several faces visible inside El Macho's Secret Lair are of masks and his own face wearing his mask on.
  • The lair appears to be huge and possibly has a lot of rooms in it.
  • Due to El Macho's Mexican theme, the lair resembles an Aztec/Mexica temple.
  • The beach is also part of his lair, which is seen when Kevin went into the tube and popped out into the lair. However, due to gravity, it can be deducted that the entire lab is below the beach.
  • Little background on the lair is known.
  • Before the evil minions and the rockets were doing their appearance there, this place was where Margo danced with Antonio and later replaced by a girl whose new boyfriend has been frozen by Gru.
