Pepe is an undisciplined schoolboy who always somehow gets into trouble. When moving to South Mexico at age 13, he practiced all kinds of extreme sports and even solo expeditions into the jungle. Upon one of these expeditions, Pepe found an ancient ruin that once belongs to the great Aztec empire that spread all over Mexico long ago. Being curious, Pepe obviously searches the ruin, and inside was an ancient scroll that kept the spirit of Quetzacoatl, the Green Dragon. The spirit bound to this ancient scroll awakened and took possession of Pepe's body. Confused, Pepe returned to his home and began to train under hidden guidance from Quetzacoatl who showed him the ancient Aztec art of fighting that excels in speed. After training, Pepe was guided to head into Sunshine City where an uncle lived. There, he attended high school and easily made lots of friends, such as Pupa and Pau. After the rising power of the Black Dragon, Pepe could sense something wasn't right. Pupa approached Pepe about her brother going missing shortly after this strange feeling of dark power. Pepe agreed to help, and they set off seeking Pupa's brother and the source of the encroaching dark power.

Pepe is an all-rounder who excels in everything but defense. If you're looking for a character with the best pressure and neutral tools, Pepe is your pick.
Pros Cons
  • God Tier Toolset: Pepe's toolset is the toolset of the gods.. He's got a safe sweep, 5D is a great anti-air, quick overhead, command grab, super that goes through projectiles, safe pressure options, full-screen corner carry DP, access to duplex without impact, etc.
  • Poor Defensive Options: Pepe's best defensive options are 623B/D and 5D. That's it. If Pepe gets cornered it's hard for him to defend properly.
  • Gaps In Block Strings: Pepe has gaps in his 214D, 214C, and, the last hit of 3B missing against crouching opponents. Knowing these gaps is purely matchup and can be avoided by the Pepe player by simply not using these, but 3B's last hit missing is a huge blow to his BnB combos.
