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

** In the ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]]'' remakes, one of the outfits that Cosplay Pikachu can wear is a luchador outfit. Like Hawlucha, she knows Flying Press with this outfit.
** ''VideoGame/PokkenTournament'' introduces Pikachu Libre, who is basically the luchador-wearing Cosplay Pikachu in a cameo. And she indeed fights like a luchador.
** During ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', you meet a Masked Wrestler known as Masked Royal who invites you to fight in the Battle Royal. [[{{Kayfabe}} He's also not Professor Kukui]].

The stock characterization for a ''luchador'' is a kindly GentleGiant 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.

* ''HitmanAbsolution'' has 47 track down Sanchez to an underground fighting ring where he is scheduled to face off against a masked fighter known as The Patriot. A special way to complete the mission is to disguise 47 as The Patriot and go into the ring to kill him in hand-to-hand combat in front of a cheering crowd who doesn't realize that the two of you are fighting for real.

* [[FragileSpeedster Ramon]] and [[MsFanservice Angel]] from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters''. Neither wears a mask, though. [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor Raiden]] and [[JusticeWillPrevail Tizoc]], from ''VideoGame/FatalFury'', both wear masks but are conventional wrestlers.

[[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor Raiden]] and [[JusticeWillPrevail Tizoc]], wrestler of some description. ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters''[='=] Ramon fits the FragileSpeedster archetype, while Tizoc[=/=]Griffon Mask from ''VideoGame/FatalFury'', both wear masks but are conventional wrestlers.''VideoGame/FatalFury'' is very much the Fray Tormenta type (minus the priest part). Angel actually fights more like an American wrestler (complete with [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Peoples' Elbow]]). ''King of Fighers XIV'' puts all three of them together as the Mexico Team, though Tizoc has undergone a FaceHeelTurn and rebranded himself as the [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs King of Dinosaurs]].

never revealing their true identities to the public, much like comicbook [[SuperHero superhero]]es and villains. To be unmasked by a rival wrestler, or indeed anyone at all, is considered an irredeemable dishonor.

* A big influence in the evolution of the SHOCKER {{Mooks}} in the original {{Series/Kamen Rider}}: Initially the henchmen were guys in berets with creepy facepaint. In episode 14, SHOCKER brings in their top agent from Mexico, a cactus-themed luchador-esque monster named Sabetregon. He had his own personal minions, who dressed in black tights and wore lucha masks with a cactus on them. Apparently, someone liked the look, because afterwards, the main SHOCKER forces began wearing similar costumes, only with a skeleton motif replacing the cactus one.

* [[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner Strong Bad's]] look is based on this, although the mask is apparently [[NotAMask his actual face.]]
** He actually wrestles in a few toons, although he makes it clear in one of them that "Being an awesome wrestler has nothing to do with awesome wrestling moves." Furthermore, in the same toon he goes through a variety of gimmicks none of which are the straight Masked Luchador gimmick - the final one even involves facepaint over his "mask"!
