Tostada is the secondary protagonist in Guacamelee! and its sequel, and she is playable when Player 2 is tagged in or onher own through the Costume Shop.
Early life Edit
In life, she was known as Josefina, as revealed by an elderly man in Canal de las Flores recounting the actions of a heroine who helped evacuate Camposanto after the eruption of the Pico de Gallo. For her heroism, she was evidently granted a different state of death in the same manner Jaguar Javier was, and set to watch over the mask that granted Juan his power.
She is first seen standing next to the Dead World version of Pueblucho's statue, where she questions that the mask chose Juan, but tells him to put it on. She does aid Juan whether as a fighting buddy or moral support throughout the game.
She can be seen mingling with Juan in the credits, presumably as the mask is bound to Juan for life and she is similarly tied to the mask. After Juan's death the mask--and presumably Tostada---disappears, perhaps to wait for another hero to aid in the future.
In the Darkest Timeline, Juan was killed by Calaca due to a mistake the two made. When she sees Juan again, he is alive and well, although she kills him to get him to the Dead World so that he can put on the mask again.
Throughout the adventure, she supports Juan as both a fighting buddy and a partner. Although she doubts at one point if the two would stop Salvador, Juan tells her to not give up hope.
- She seems to be extremely attuned to the mask, as whenever Juan, it's wearer, learns a new move, she does as well. The origin of the mask and her connection to it is unknown, as her actions at Camposanto did not involve a mask of any sort.
- However, when the mask ripped apart at the first game's good ending, she loses this attachment and can freely be a friend to Juan and Lupita.
- If Player 1 uses Tostada, she will wear blue as opposed to pink.
- Tostada's move set primarily utilizes kicks due to her stronger legs, including the usage of the Rooster Uppercut and the Dashing Derpderp.
