Dante is one of the two tetartagonists of the 2017 Pixar film, Coco, alongside Pepita. He is Miguel's pet and best friend, and Pepita's love interest.

Background

Personality

Dante is extremely loyal to Miguel due his kindness earlier. Although Dante acts goofy and simple-minded, he is smarter than he looks. Dante has a weakness towards food as it led Miguel to embarrassing situations in the film. Although Dante is superficially goofy and simple-minded, it is shown that he is smarter than he looks.

Dante's loyalty is demonstrated to be his most endearing quality. He became extremely defensive for Miguel's well-being, as he tries to stop him from finding Ernesto de la Cruz knowing that this was not best for Miguel.

Physical appearance

Like most dogs of the Xoloitzcuintle breed, Dante is a skinny, almost hairless dog with wrinkled brown skin and long legs. He appears to be under-conditioned with a tear on his left ear, given the fact that he is a stray. He is often seen with his tongue sticking out, due to his missing teeth.

Dante later becomes an alebrije guardian and is gains wings smaller than Pepita's. This appearance retains Dante's body shape, although his skin became radically multicolored, his tongue turned blue, and his left and right eyes turned pink and yellow respectively.
