Who would have believed that my greatest achievement, the final act in the prosperous treasure hunting career, would find me squaring off against a socially inept jungle nerd and three high school losers!
~ Alejandro revealing his true nature as the mercenary leader.

Professor Alejandro Gutierrez is the main antagonist of the 2019 Nickelodeon film Dora and the Lost City of Gold, which is based on the animated series Dora The Explorer.

He is a professor of the National University of San Marcos in Peru and a treasure hunter who appears as an old friend of Elena and Cole Marquéz who helped their daughter Dora, as well as her cousin Diego and their two friends Sammy and Randy, find Parápata. However, he is secretly the leader of a group of treasure hunters seeking a golden statue from the ancient city and has actually never been friends with Dora's parents.

He was portrayed by Eugenio Derbez, who also played Chato in The Book of Life.

Appearance

Alejandro has dark sun-tanned skin and a trimly shaped beard and mustache with slightly curling dark hair. He wears a white cabana hat with a black ribbon ban, a blue neckerchief with white flowers printed on it, a beige button-down shirt and an open faded green jacket. He carries a hardy-looking brown bag to carry his equipment.

Personality

Alejandro is a greedy and egotistical man who worked with mercenaries in order to get his hands on the treasures of Parapata. Despite his seemingly benign nature, Alejandro is shown to be a master manipulator willing to abandon a group of teenagers to danger to reach his own ends. He lied to Dora about knowing her parents after pretending to "rescue" them from the band of mercenaries. In truth, he was working with those mercenaries and only freed Dora so she may lead them to her parents and the city.

Biography

Alejandro first appears when Dora, Diego, Sammy, and Randy were kidnapped by the mercenaries Powell, Viper, and Christina X in a museum and brought to the Amazon. He breaks them out of the crate they were trapped in and helped them escape, but Swiper the Fox manage to steal Dora's map on Powell's orders.

After the escape, Alejandro reports that Dora's parents have gone missing and that the mercenaries are searching for them in hopes of getting into Parapata and stealing its treasures. The group travels through numerous obstacles, including quicksand, Inca ruin puzzles, and attacks from the Lost Guardians of Parapata. Eventually, Dora reaches her parents just outside the borders of Parapata, and Alejandro reveals he was working with the mercenaries.

Dora and the other teens are captured by the mercenaries, but Boots helps them escape where Dora yo-yo's Viper. Alejandro and Powell find that Dora and her friends escaped and that Viper had been hit with a yo-yo again. With Dora's parents still prisoners, the teens decide to find the way inside Parapata in hopes of acquiring treasure that they can use to bargain for Elena and Cole's release. Dora and the others solve its temple's puzzles and dodge its traps, bringing them to the center shrine. At this point, Alejandro reveals that he was following them, presents gold to the final puzzle, and attempts to steal its statue himself, but instead triggers a trap and almost falls to his death into a pit of lava. The Lost Guardians arrive, defeat his mercenaries, and pull Alejandro out of the trap. They then confront the teens, but Dora speaks to them and presents water to the final puzzle, assuring that the teens only came for her parents and to learn. The Guardians allow the teens and Dora's family to leave, allowing them a glimpse of their greatest treasure as Alejandro is taken away. Swiper takes it and nearly destroys the lost city, but Dora manages to return it to its rightful place.

During the credits that has the characters singing a variation of "We did it," Alejandro is chained to a table and is fed cooked insects as he sings "Can someone get me out of here?" As he eats the insect, the soldiers overseeing him sing in their language which is translated in subtitles "You'll be here for a thousand years." Unless magic is involved, Alejandro will most likely not be alive by the time his sentence is complete.

Quotes

Dora, it is you! (Dora: Who are you?) I'm a friend of your parents. I'm rescuing you, Dora. Come with me if you want to live!
~ Alejandro seemingly freeing Dora, Diego, Sammy and Randy from the crate while claiming to be a friend of Dora's parents.
I ate chile con carne!
~ Alejandro while in quicksand.
(Randy: We're on a field trip.) (Cole: And where are the mercenaries?) (Dora: Alejandro saved us from them, and he's with us.) (Elena: Who?) (Dora: Your old friend, Alejandro, from the university. You sent him your journal.) (Cole: My journal was stolen days before the expedition.) Bravo Team, this is alpha leader. (Dora: You don't know him, do you? (Alejandro chuckles) Oh, miercoles.) We found them. (Elena: Honey, come here. Get back, kids.) You have my location. (Dora: You lied to me!) No, no, no, no, no. No, I outwitted you... (Cole: That's the same thing.) ...as I have outwitted every adversary that came before you. Who would have believed that my greatest achievement, the final act in the prosperous treasure hunting career, would find me squaring off against a socially inept jungle nerd... (Cole: Hey, hey, hey!) ...and three high school losers. (Cole: I don't know them, so whatever.) Now if you please, you will lead me to Parapata. (Cole: But you can't get inside. It's impenetrable.) (laughs) Impenetrable. (Cole: That means you can't get inside.) I know! (Cole: Okay.) Shut up! You wouldn't want anything to happen to her, no, would you? (Cole: Of course not.) Good. Good, good. So, if everyone just plays nice, I'll get my gold, and you'll be on your way safe and sound. You're a smart family, right? So, make the smart choice, hmm? We're moving out! Let's go!
~ Alejandro revealing his true nature to Dora as the mercenary leader.
Can you all shut up back there?! I've had to listen to your mindless positivity for three days! Your relentless good nature spirit is a holy nightmare! So just shut up. Shut up! (Elena: We're so sorry about that...) SHUT UP! No more talking! And definitely no more singing.
~ Alejandro yelling at Dora and her parents to be quiet.
(Sammy: What did the Incas fear the most?) That's easy. The same as me. Gold. (Randy: Oh, crud.) Thanks for getting through the tough stuff for me. Once again, I only had to follow Miss Know-It-All, and she led me straight to the gold. (laughs) Gold, gold. Lots and lots of gold! The answer to the puzzle is obvious. The Incas built monuments and their gods with it. Gold is as close to touching the sun as the Incas could get. (places a gold coin on a statue and it moves) It's happening. It's happening! IT'S HAPPENING! I beat you, I won. I beat you, I won, I beat you, I won! The treasure is going to be mine! (Dora: You were wrong about me, Alejandro. I'm not a know-it-all. But by now, I do know you. I knew that you would follow us in here, and I knew that you wouldn't let us take all the risk for you. I knew the final Inca test would carry dire consequences for those who should fail it, which is why we are over here, and you, well you're standing right there.) (A noise is heard and Alejandro steps back. It appears he has set a trap and falls in screaming) I'm still alive! Powell, Viper, get in here now! My mercenaries are on their way! This is not over yet!
~ Alejandro revealing he followed the teens into Parapata and attempts to steal the gold, only to fall into a trap.
Can someone get me out of here?
~ Alejandro while he is a prisoner in Parapata and forced to eat cooked insects.

Trivia

  • Given what his goals are and despite his comedic tendencies, Alejandro Gutierrez is easily the darkest villain of the Dora the Explorer franchise, even more than Swiper the Fox (who in turn is more villainous than in the original cartoon). This is because when Alejandro reveals his true colors, he is shown to be willing to resort to murder to achieve his goals, something that the antagonists of the original show and its sequel series (which were intended for preschoolers) would never do.
