* [[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner Strong Bad's]] look is based on this, although the mask is apparently 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!

* 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).

** 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.
