** ComicBook/{{Bane}} is partly luchador-inspired, though his mask and fighting movies may or may not closely resemble a luchador's DependingOnTheArtist, and he hails from a fictional Caribbean BananaRepublic rather than Mexico. ''Series/{{Batman}} 66'' took this and ran with it.

The stock characterization for a ''luchador'' is a kindly GentleGiant [[FriendToAllChildren who loves kids]]. This is from the story of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fray_Tormenta Fray Tormenta]] (Friar Storm), a Catholic priest who started wrestling to earn money for his orphanage. Villainous ''luchadores'' are pretty rare.

rare. Outside Mexico, though, where ''luchadores'' attract considerably less reverence, they're much more common - big burly dudes with concealed faces are scary, after all, and it's a good way to give your MalevolentMaskedMan some exotic flair.

** It's quite possible that the [[AnimalMotifs tiger motif]] that appears throughout the game associated with Travis Touchdown, is a subtle {{homage}} to the Japanese wrestler Manga/TigerMask. Interestingly enough, Tiger Mask appeared in ''Fire Pro Wrestling D''. Suda51 began working on videogames with the ''Fire Pro Wrestling'' series.

* The Sacred Heart faith in ''AfterTheEndACrusaderKingsIIMod'' counts El Santo among its patron deities. Followers of El Santo can become ''luchadores'' themselves, and face each other in wrestling matches - unlike in El Santo's day, they [[ProWrestlingIsReal fight for real]]. The Sacred Heart also has a holy order of luchador knights, ''La Orden de la Mascara'' (The Order of the Mask).
