Early life Edit

Uay Chivo has existed for an unknown amount of time, and had once trained Jaguar Javier. Nothing is known about if he made the Choozo Statues or not.

Guacamelee! Edit

He is responsible for teaching Juan Aguacate and Tostada essential new moves and abilities. Depicted as a decrepit old man, he is capable of transforming into a goat at will and calls himself the lord of all goat-men. He is cantankerous and is constantly deriding Juan for being destructive and dim-witted after breaking his precious Choozo Statues, which contain the moves he teaches. When he is first encountered, he will ask if Juan's mother is single and likes "baaaaaaaad" boys.

In the end, he asks Juan to defeat Calaca, and from then on, they "will be bros" and according to the bro code, Juan's mother would be off-limits to Chivo.

Guacamelee! 2 Edit

In this game, it is revealed that there is a whole council of Uay Chivos from different timelines, and Uay Chivo 24 (the mentor from Juan's timeline) had trained the only surviving Juan Aguacate. Uay Chivo and the council all help Juan relearn his moves over the course of the game.


Uay Chivo is based on The Huay Chivo, a traditional character from Mayan folklore. The Huay Chivo is believed to be a half-man half-beast, or some sort of sorcerer who terrorizes livestock. The Huay Chivo is the basis for the Chupacabra myth.
