Devante is a character from The Canyons levels. He has an apparent friendship with Uncle Jalapeno. He knows the ins and outs of explosives like his friend, considering he breaks him out of prison with the help of Sackboy when Sheriff Zapata arrested Uncle Jalapeno. You meet him twice in Boom Town, first around the beginning of the level, next when you are going to break Uncle Jalapeno out of jail.

He also appears in the level The Collector's Lair, in the same cage as Uncle Jalapeno. If you pull the switch, the bottom of the cage explodes and they fall out.



Devante first appears in the level Boom Town, where he asks Sackboy to help break Uncle Jalapeño out of jail.

Later in the level The Collector's Lair, he appears alongside Uncle Jalapeño, being trapped. Sackboy releases him, and they both shout out "Freedom!"

Devante makes a cameo in Serpent's Shrine and King's Castle.



Devante looks like a normal sackperson, but with sunken eyes, a bushy mustache and a large jaw. He wears a patterned poncho and sombrero of a red-ish hue.


  • He was originally named "Juan Swimen", and he's also originally attracted to women.
  • Most likely as a joke, Devante's mouth is filled with green, poisonous gas, implying that Devante has very bad breath.
  • Oddly, his name is never stated in-game, only as an object in the Popit.
    • In LittleBigPlanet Karting, his name in the Popit is "Mustache Man".
