El Polito's first appearance

El Polito is Eduardo's pet chicken.


According to Eduardo, El Polito is usually very friendly, but if she recognizes intruders she goes crazy on them. After her first meeting with Gru and Lucy, she developed her anger to them.



El Pollito as a chick

Eduardo apparently kept Pollito ever since she was a chick, as shown in picture he keeps in the Salsa & Salsa kitchen.

El Polito

El Pollito is known to be the accomplice of Despicable Me 2. When Lucy and Gru break into the salsa restaurant, Gru accidentally triggered the alarm which caused El Polito to come out. But Lucy and Gru don't think that a chicken is anything to worry about and Gru started insulting El Polito by stating that she is not so much for a guard dog. The chicken attacks and pecks him. Lucy stops El Polito by shooting her with a substance that freeze her body.

After the rough night El Polito recognizes Gru when he is at the restaurant picking up Margo, El Polito immediately tries to attack, though Eduardo stops him. Instead of attacking, El Polito glares at Gru.

El Polito is seen again when she spots Lucy at Eduardo's party, but instead of attacking Lucy she tries to get her purse. With help from El Polito, Eduardo finds out that Gru and Lucy work for the AVL.

The revenge

"I Really Hate That Chicken"

After defeating El Macho at the lair, Gru is trying to untie Lucy from El Macho's rocket. But the trigger is on the ground unguarded and El Polito stands by and looks at Gru and Lucy. El Polito pushes the trigger which makes the rocket launch and Gru says "I really hate that chicken".


  • During her first fight with Gru, El Polito snuck into Gru's shirt. When Gru lied down on a table, El Polito's head popped out of the shirt in the stomach area. This may be a reference to a similar scene in one of the Aliens movie.
