"El Primo throws a flurry of punches at his enemies. His Super is a leaping elbow drop that deals damage to all caught underneath!"
El Primo Portrait

El Primo is a Rare Brawler who attacks with his fists, dealing major damage to enemies that he is able to get close enough to. El Primo also has very high health, allowing him to withstand a lot of damage. With his Super, he can jump a long distance and crash down on opponents, dealing damage and pushing enemies away from his landing spot. His Gadget, Suplex Supplement, allows him to grab opponents and fling them over his shoulders. His first Star Power, El Fuego, sets enemy brawlers on fire, dealing 1200 damage over 4 seconds when his Super hits enemy brawlers, items, or Robots. His second Star Power, Meteor Rush, grants him a 25% speed boost for 4 seconds after he uses his Super.

Attack: Fists of Fury

"El Primo fires off a furious flurry of four fiery fists. That's a spicy jalapeno knuckle sandwich!"
El Primo fires off a burst of four punches at short range doing high damage. El Primo must be quite close to his targets to damage them, but he cannot damage targets that he is right on top of. His punches can pierce through targets, so it is possible for him to damage multiple enemies or boxes with each punch.

Super: Flying Elbow Drop

"Leaping high, El Primo drops an Intergalactic Elbow that knocks around enemies and destroys cover!"
When El Primo's Super is used, he jumps a short distance dealing damage and knocking back enemy Brawlers. The damage dealt is rather minor. His Super is mostly used to get El Primo into range of enemy Brawlers so that he can hit them with his main attack. While in the air, El Primo is completely immune to all damage besides damage applied over time (i.e. Crow's Poison).

Gadget: Suplex Supplement

"El Primo grabs the closest enemy within his reach and flips them like a pancake over his broad shoulders."
El Primo flings back enemies over his head. This allows him to stun the enemy and throw them over walls. He can only activate this Gadget if an enemy is within 2 tiles from him, and the enemy will always travel 6 tiles away from their original location. He cannot throw enemies who still have an invulnerability shield after they respawn.

Star Powers

El Fuego

"Enemies caught in El Primo's Super will burn for 1200 damage over 4 seconds."
When El Primo uses his Super, he sets fire to enemies that he hits at the end of his leap. This burning effect causes affected enemies to take a total of 1200 damage over 4 seconds, or 300 damage every second. It is very similar to Crow's poison effect.

Meteor Rush

"El Primo gains a 25% speed boost for 4.0 seconds after using his Super."
Once El Primo hits the ground after using his Super, his speed will be increased drastically for 4 seconds, and few Brawlers will be faster than him.


  • El Primo can do high damage but his attacks have a very short range. To knock out powerful ranged Brawlers, you must find a way to maneuver El Primo into range before the enemy Brawler can move away. Otherwise, they will be able to knock out El Primo without taking damage.
  • El Primo's Super allows him to move a long distance relatively quickly, so it can be used to catch up to enemy Brawlers who are running away, escape dangerous situations, and reach and attack long-range Brawlers.
  • In Brawl Ball, you can self-pass if you have your Super. Use your high health to get within Super range of the goal, kick the ball towards any obstacles and then use your Super to jump on them, knocking away brawlers and clearing boxes, giving you an easy goal.
  • El Primo's Super is very useful in Heist because he can jump to the safe and start rapidly punching it without needing to go around the safe's walls. Also, he can use the jump to take out enemies around the safe and break the wall, allowing other teammates to get to the safe easily.
  • When playing El Primo in Gem Grab, he can be used to push back the enemy Brawlers, giving your team a chance to take control of the middle.
  • If using El Primo as the gem carrier, use your Super to escape from any approaching enemies.
  • When playing Brawl Ball, El Primo's Super is effective in knocking the Ball out of opponent's control and dealing damage, thereby preventing them from scoring easily.
  • El Fuego has the ability to prevent enemies who are caught in his leap from healing for an additional 4 seconds, raising the required time for a Brawler to start auto-regeneration from 3 seconds to 7 seconds.
  • When playing Duo Showdown with a non-random teammate, pair El Primo with either strong healers like Pam and Poco or long ranged support units like 8-BIT, Colt/Rico, and Brock to increase your chances of victory.
  • Using his Suplex Supplement, El Primo can displace enemy brawlers, stunning them for the time they are airborne and sending them a few tiles back. This is especially useful in Brawl Ball to remove defenders from their goal, or stop approaching enemies from walking the ball to your own goal. He can also wait by the poison gas in Showdown so that he can then throw them into the gas, potentially knocking them out.
