Editor’s Exclusive: Meet the real Eddy Gordo!
Scary Larry interviews capoeria artist Marcel Pereira—the man who gave Tekken 3’s Eddy Gordo his moves.
Marcelo Pereira was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil. He has been involved with theater since 1970. He started playing (dancing, entertaining, fighting) capoeira as a child on the streets, and was later referred to one of the most famous capoeira masters, Mestre Suassuna.

From the age of 14 Mestre Marcelo studied under Mestre Suassuna. In 1984, Mestre Marcelo left Brazil and settled in the United States at which time there were only two other practitioners teaching Capoeira. Capoeira Mandinga, Mestre Marcelo’s organization, is a brother organization to Cordão de Ouro and is represented throughout the USA, in Israel, New Zealand, Mexico and now China. The Mestre is also known for his part in creating the character Eddy Gordo for the video game Tekken 3.
