* 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 who went by La Novia Del Santo (The Bride Of El Santo, known as Irma González without the mask) who used the persona with Santo's blessing, and a male homosexual wrestler with the same name, who did ''not'' have his approval.

** His grandson Axxel is one now as well. Originally working under the name El Nieto Del Santo, his uncle sued him to prevent him from using it since he owned the copyright for the name, presumably intending for one of his own sons to use it. In 2012, courts ruled in favor of Axxel, allowing him to use the name again. His cousin took up the name "El Santo Jr" upon finishing his training instead.

The movies also featured Santo's WorthyOpponent Blue Demon, who in true wrestling fashion would [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor switch from ally to enemy and back]] on a fairly regular basis. Take a gander at Wiki/TheOtherWiki for the full filmography, as well as [[http://rotten.com/library/culture/santo/ the Rotten Library's great "Santo" article]].

Born Rodolfo Guzman Huerta, he started out normal, or whatever passed for normal in the hard-knock world of Mexican professional wrestling in the 1940s. After starting out as a heel ("rudo" in Spanish), he gained popularity, [[HeelFaceTurn became a face ("tecnico" in Spanish)]], and by the 50s was basically the biggest name in Lucha Libre. It is at about this point that El Santo evolves from mere Wrestling Legend to a cult figure and folk hero.

* 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}}: Creator/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.
