Throughout From Dusk Till Dawn[]

In From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter, he takes the hood off Ambrose and tells him that he wants to see when the bullet hits him, which Pancho obliges. He tells Ambrose that the wall behind has been splattered with the blood of men like him and he should be comforted by that. Pancho then readies his men to shoot, and Ambrose says his final words. After giving the final command, Pancho moves out of the way and Ambrose is hit, but it's revealed that this was all a nightmare.

Physical Appearance[]

He had a medium sized build, with a light brown jacket, white shirt and bullet strapped over his body. He wore a sombrero and what can be seen, he has dark brown hair with slight grayish hint. He had dark, brown eyes and a mustache.


With the film's version of Pancho, he is quite ruthless, but seems polite and honorable enough to oblige Ambrose's wish to see the bullet hitting him.
