* Col. Corazon Santiago, of ''[[SidMeiersAlphaCentauri AlphaCentauri]]'' fame, leads the Spartans - a faction dedicated to survivalist tactics, guns aplenty and military discipline even in civilian life. She gets some of the most [[BadassBoast badass quotes]] in the game, too.

* Inigo Montoya from ''Literature/ThePrincessBride''. A noble, honorable swordsman who's only working for Vizzini [[PunchClockVillain to pay the bills]], he's really focused on revenge for [[YouKilledMyFather his father's murder]] by a six-fingered man. He also allows the Dread Pirate Roberts a few moments to catch his breath before dueling him. In the end, Inigo pulls a HeelFaceTurn (though he [[AntiVillian didn't have far to turn in the first place]]), and unites with Wesley to help rescue Buttercup.

* Black Tarantula from ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' and ''ComicBook/SpiderGirl'' Comics. The original Black Tarantula made his debut appearance by utterly demolishing Spider-Man in every encounter they had. Seriously, there wasn't a single confrontation between them that wasn't horrendously lopsided. Heck, one of Black Tarantula's flunkies made a habit of handing Spidey his backside. When she later got into a confrontation with Black Tarantula, he effortlessly killed her and then brought her back to life with his healing powers and put her back to work. This incarnation of Black Tarantula then experienced Badass Decay when he was later nearly killed by Bullseye with a single attack, and became something of an understudy to daredevil.\\\
A second version of Black Tarantula exists in the alternate MC-2 Universe. This version is the son of the one Spider-Man used to fight and has become both an archvillain, and a love interest to Spider-Man's daughter, Spider-Girl. After an impressive Story-Arc in which he was trying to win her as his mate, but also deceive her into helping him become to new Kingpin of Crime, Spider-girl learned the truth and was prepared to go at him with everything she had. Upon realizing that she was serious, Black Tarantula promptly got down on his knees and surrendered rather than be forced to beat the woman he loved, showing hints of the Latin Lover trope as well. Almost as soon as the prisoner transport taking him away was gone, he easily escaped. He has since defeated and taken control over an organization of trans-dimensional assassins in order to force them to cancel the contract on Spider-Girl's life.

* ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'': Speedy Gonzales is both a figurative and a literal dashing Hispanic. Also, even though his shorts were perceived as potentially offensive to Latin Americans and Spaniards, he eventually became a popular cartoon character in Mexico.

Bonus points if he [[FamousNamedForeigner shares a name]] with a conquistador or an iconic Spanish author, if his LeitMotif sounds like ''Theatre/{{Carmen}}'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wS_AOjqeo-w on]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyXD290DZhQ steroids]], or if other characters literally call him [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep "the Spaniard"]]. May also be a LatinLover. Will probably make use of GratuitousSpanish. If male, his love interest is almost inevitably a SpicyLatina. Administrivia/NoRealLifeExamplesPlease

* Alejandro in ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' is a villainous example. He is shown to [[Badass have many skills]], and is admired by most of the contestants until they discover his true nature. In fact, he actually throws in GratuitousSpanish whenever he is frustrated, and the fifth season gives him a Spanish leitmotif that is based on Zorro's theme.
