** [[SidekickPromotion Less directly]], Santo's StuntDouble Black Man would become the biggest draw in Mexico alongside Kung Fu and Kato Kung Lee, as though Santo's feud with Los Misioneros de la Muerte had concluded, they were still around, still hated and tercias matches were still the most popular in Mexico. Los Tres Fantasticos were just what LLI needed when Santo departed.

* TheRival: Los Hermanos Shadow (Black Shadow and Blue Demon) after their turns to technicos. Perro Aguayo was his last rival in individual competition, a rivalry their sons would continue.

* LivingLegend: As our article makes quite clear, he was ''definitely'' one of these. He was arguably the closest thing the world has ever seen to a real-life superhero.

* Expy: GuillermoDelToro pays {{homage}} to The Saint in his book series (and the TV adaptation thereof) Literature/TheStrain with The Silver Angel, a Saint-like luchadore/action star who withdrew into anonymity after a crippling knee injury ended his career. Decades later, the vampire apocalypse offers a second chance for a RetiredBadass to reclaim his mask, and live up to his legend.

Stand back and think about this for a second. How insanely awesome would it be if Comicbook/{{Superman}}, Comicbook/{{Batman}}, and Comicbook/{{Wolverine}} freed themselves from the page, and started flying around/brooding around/slicing around your neighborhood? Now imagine you're a six year old kid in Mexico City in 1954, and your favorite thing in the world is El Santo Comics. It doesn't take long to discover that Santo is a real person. But unlike when you find out that your daddy is Santa Claus, it turns out that Santo is actually buff, actually fights people, and has both an actual superhero costume and a semi-secret identity? All that crazy stuff El Santo does in the comics, like choking out the Loch Ness Monster and hiding out in a secret moonbase, suddenly becomes an order of magnitude more believable. Even the brighter kids can't outright dismiss the more mundane stories, like Santo foiling bank robberies or inventing gadgets, perhaps even fighting sharks. For the youngsters of the 50s and 60s, El Santo was an Actual RealLifeSuperhero, regardless of his technical lack of superpowers.

* LegacyCharacter: His son El Hijio Del Santo took over the mask after him, and his son is training at Wrestling/ProWrestlingNOAH to take over after him as El Nieto Del Santo. There was also an unrelated female wrestler named La Novia Del Santo (The Bride Of El Santo) who used the persona with Santo's blessing, and a male homosexual wrestler with the same name, who did ''not'' have his approval.
