The Smugglers are the tertiary villains in Rio. Throughout the movie, they try to capture Blu and Jewel, because they are believed to be the last remaining Blue Macaws making them worth a lot of money. They try to export them out of the country on a plane. Their client is unknown, but could possibly be French, as Marcel said "au revoir" (meaning "goodbye") to him during a phone conversation.

- The Mysterious Dealer could possibly be the same person that bird-napped the exotic birds in the jungles of Rio de Janeiro in the beginning of Rio, just after the first half of "Real In Rio".
