Pedro Manuel Torres (born 18 March 1982), aka Mantorras, is an Angolan footballer who plays for C.D. Primeiro de Agosto as a striker.

His nickname derives from the fact that, as a child, he suffered slight accidental burns, being then known as "Mantorras", from the Angolan expression "Mano Torras," which means "Toasted brother." His professional career, mainly spent with Benfica, was blighted by constant injury problems.

Mantorras played for Angola in the 2000's, representing the nation at its very first World Cup.
