* [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/VideoGame/Battleborn Battleborn]] now has one of these in one Francesco Drake, "El Dragón". He's got the added benefit of [[ArtificialLimbs cybernetic arms]] and the ability to [[ManOnFire light himself on fire]]- [[IncendiaryExponent to his enemies' detriment.]]

** Rainbow Mika also qualifies.

to:

** Despite the mask and attitude, Japanese wrestler Rainbow Mika also qualifies.from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha'' is a subversion. Her and her fighting style are actually based off ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puroresu#Female_wrestling puroesu]]'', a type of women's pro wrestling that originated in Japan. She's often mistaken as a straight example of a MaskedLuchador thanks to ''puroesu'' being relatively unknown outside of Japan, and the fact that El Fuerte happens to be a huge fan of hers doesn't help matters.



** One of the outfits that Cosplay Pikachu can wear is a luchador outfit. Like Hawlucha, she knows Flying Press with this outfit.
*** ''VideoGame/PokkenTournament'' also introduces Pikachu Libre, which is essentially a female Pikachu who fights like a luchador.

* The sport of ''Truxican'' Wrestling is mentioned occasionally in the ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' series. Assuming Truxicans are {{Space |Jews}}Mexicans as their name implies, it probably involves masked luchadores.

* ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird'' has The Luchadores, an entire gang made up of luchadores led by one wrestler named [[NamestoRunAwayFromReallyFast Killbane, the Walking Apocalypse]]. He also prefers going by Killbane over his real name, and [[DoNotCallMePaul will react violently]] to anyone who calls him by it.



* In the second case of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies'', a masked wrestler called "The Amazing Nine-Tails" plays a pretty big part.

* In the second case of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies'', a masked wrestler called "The Amazing Nine-Tails" plays a pretty big part. In the WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue, [[spoiler:Mayor Tenma]] says he has started wrestling under a second, {{Heel}} persona... which has ended up putting him in the unfortunate situation of his two personas being scheduled to fight each other, and he has no clue how he's going to pull that off.

* Wrestling/{{ECW}} helped to popularize the style in the United States, with alumni including the aforementioned Rey Mysterio Jr., Wrestling/{{Psicosis}}, Wrestling/LaParka, and Juventud Guerrera. Most of ECW's luchadores ended up getting poached by Wrestling/{{WCW}} for their cruiserweight division.

* Wrestling/{{TNA}} has an interesting example in Sangriento, a luchadore played by established X-Division wrestler The Amazing Red, who continued to appear unmasked in different parts of the show treated as a separate individual(this stunt same stunt in WCW may have lead to Reina Jubuki being stripped of he CMLL World Woman's title and was fodder for the Suicide vs Motor City Machine Guns feud in TNA itself)

* Masked Luchadors did not actually start in Mexico, believe it or not, though no one is sure exactly ''where'' that was for certain; the first man to bring it into the country was known as "The Masked Marvel", and his {{secret identity}} gimmick had been going on long enough in the USA already for him to be a LegacyCharacter. Still, "Maravilla Enmascarada" caught on in Mexico like nowhere else before, so [[Wrestling/{{CMLL}} EMLL]] booker Salvador Lutteroth tried to duplicate this success with Wrestling/ElSanto. In the end, Maravilla's success wasn't duplicated but dwarfed, as El Santo became Mexico's most famous luchador.

* WWE Hall of Famer Mil Mascaras is arguably the one to pave the way for some of the most prominent Mexican superstars like Wrestling/ReyMysterioJr and Wrestling/EddieGuerrero in the US(though they were both US nationals. Mexican nationals haven't done so well outside the indies in post territory US) or Silver King, Bengala, Dr Wagner Jr, Wrestling/{{Mistico}}, Mascara Dorada, Dragon Lee and La Sombra in Japan's 'Puroresu' promotions.
