Listen up, you cowards! These are Chakal's demands! "Hand over your chickens, moneys, bacon, jars, mustache wax." This looks like "jelly" but I think it's "jewelry." Yeah, jewelry. Anyways, if you give all this to us... then maybe we won't burn your town down.
~ Chato threatening the people of San Angel to give their stuff to Chakal.

Chato is the secondary antagonist in the 2014 film The Book of Life. He is a bandit and Chakal's second-in-command who is helping him find the Medal of Everlasting Life, to make Chakal immortal. He is the only bandit (besides Chakal) that talks throughout the entire film. Also see Bandits (The Book Of Life).

He was voiced by Eugenio Derbez, who later played Alejandro Gutierrez in Dora and the Lost City of Gold.


Chato was first seen when he and some other bandits come to town at midnight and started going over a list of Chakal's demands. He then threatened to burn San Angel and he and the rest of the bandits are about to attack Manolo but they are stopped by Joaquin when he shows up.

Chato then tells Plomo to attack him but Joaquin was able to beat him then they all jump on him. As the bandits push the hero, they don't know why Joaquin is not getting hurt, but then Chato points to the Medal of Everlasting Life. Joaquin notices and soon knocks all of the bandits back and then covers the medal. After being beaten by the town hero, Chato gives Joaquin an "I'm watching you" kind of look, then orders all the bandits to fall back and they all retreat.

Later, he rushes to tell Chakal that they found the Medal of Everlasting Life in the town of San Angel that he has been looking for. Chakal then jumped at him and asked if he was certain about it, and Chato replied that it was for sure the legendary medal and pointed to a drawing of it on the wall. Chakal then tells Chato to gather the men so they can head for San Angel and kicks him out of the cave.

As Chato and rest of the bandits make their way to San Angel, they encounter Manolo's father, Carlos, who wanted to hold them back when he asks who wants to go next. Chato and the other bandits then make way for Chakal, who kills the bull fighter in no time. He, along with Chakal and the rest of the bandits, finally make it to San Angel. Chato was seen with all the other bandits as they all watched Chakal fight Joaquin but he was able to knock the medal off of Joaquin and after he sends the town hero flying in the air, Chato and the bandits all laugh at the failed hero.

He and some of the bandits take Maria prisoner as Chakal grabed the medal, when suddenly Manolo returned to the living. He and everyone else were then knocked back. Chato was seen laughing with the bandits, thinking Manolo had no army, but then all of Manolo's dead family members showed up and Chakal and his army were silent. Chato and some of the bandits find the medal but they get attacked by Chuy and the other farm animals, making him quote before all of the animals rammed them and he then loses the medal.

Chato is last seen where he tells all the bandits that Chakal was defeated and orders them to retreat. He then runs away with the whole army. It is unknown what became of him and the rest of the bandits after Chakal's death.
