(Spanish Name: Leopardo Negro) Dark Leopard is Manny's Great-great-great-great grandfather. The first Rivera Super Villain who seemed to have been around during the Mesoamerican times.
Dark Leopard used a stone mech-suit that is similiar to his grandson's and his great-great grandson's mech-suit. It has an Aztec theme, with the gold color and the feline characteristics.
- Self-propelled flight
- Grappling arm.
At one time, Dark Leopard betrayed his Aztec people and married a Spanish woman (with whom he'd later father Golden Leon, the first Rivera hero), thus becoming the first supervillain of the Rivera family.
- As mentioned by the series creator, Dark Leopard is slightly inspired by La Malinche, a Nahua woman who played an active and powerful role in the Spanish conquest of Mexico, acting as interpreter, advisor and intermediary for Hernán Cortés. She was also a mistress to Cortés and gave birth to his first son, who is considered one of the first Mestizos.
