I really hate that chicken.
~ Felonious Gru about El Pollito (after he sets off the rocket).

El Pollito is El Macho's loyal pet chicken and the secondary antagonist of Despicable Me 2.


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


When Lucy Wilde and Gru break into the salsa restaurant, Gru accidentally triggered the alarm which caused Pollito to come out. However, Lucy and Gru do not think that a chicken is anything to worry about and Gru started insulting Pollito by stating that he is not so much for a guard dog. The chicken attacks and pecks him. Lucy stops Pollito by shooting his with a substance that freezes his body.

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

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

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 Pollito stands by and looks at Gru and Lucy. Wanting revenge on Gru for defeating El Macho, Pollito pushes the trigger which makes the rocket launch and Gru says "I really hate that chicken". It is unknown what happens to Pollito after his master is arrested.
