Ernesto De La Cruz is the antagonist of Coco. He was Miguel Rivera's idol, and a famous singer and musician who dazzled audiences with his good looks and his charm, and was a source of Mexican pride due to his handsome looks, strong morals, and his standing up for his fellow Mexicans. He was also thought to be Miguel's great-great grandfather as well. After dying by being crushed by a giant bell, he resides as a soul in the Land of the Dead. It is later revealed that Héctor had written the songs that Cruz performs in the film; however, Hector was feeling homesick and had an argument with Cruz. Cruz subsequently poisoned Hector, and stole the credit for the songs he had written.
