Manny Rivera/El Tigre is the titular, main protagonist from El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera. He is 13-year old boy with the abilities of a tiger, he must decide whether to use them for good or evil.
He is voiced by Alanna Ubach.
Why He's Super Macho
- His concept of trying to decide to either be a super hero or a super villain is very interesting and unique.
- His design is cool and nice to look at, especially his superhero outfit.
- His belt that he uses to transform into El Tigre is very powerful and contains a powerful spirit inside.
- Most of his moves and powers when he is El Tigre are very cool such as having retractable claws and grappling hook hands.
- His friendship with Frida is great and they both share a lot of chemistry and similarities together.
- He cares a lot about his family and Frida.
- He is also usually honest such as in "Fool's Goal" where he doesn’t want to cheat to win the game and wants to play fairly even though it costed him and his team losing.
- His mustache, Raul, is even cooler since it’s sentient and can move by itself.
- Alanna Ubach does a great job voicing him.
- Just like Frida, he contributes to some of the show's gross out humor such as belching.
- Also like Frida, he isn’t really bright either.
- He's a huge punching bag on this show.
- He was completely out of character on "El Tigre, El Jefe", where he became way too helpful and nice towards the other students at Escula that it causes his friends unknowingly getting help from a super villain to stop Manny from being too helpful.
- He, along with Frida and Grandpapi made a cameo on The Book of Life during the 2D animated sequence.
