* 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.

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 TheOtherWiki for the full filmography, as well as [[http://rotten.com/library/culture/santo/ the Rotten Library's great "Santo" article]].

* FollowTheLeader: The Saint was one of the many attempts to duplicate the success of the Masked Marvel, or Maravilla Enmascarada, as he was known in Mexico. However, El Santo would go on to ''surpass'' Maravilla in popularity by a very wide margin.

Legends are invincible, but despite rumors to the contrary, Santo was indeed human. After nearly 50 years in the ring, El Santo's age finally caught up to him. Following a farewell tour against a who's who of Lucha Libre, the masked man retired in 1982 at the ripe old age of 64. In January 1984 on a nationally televised talk show, Santo unmasked for the first and only time in public, shocking his legions of adoring fans. It is widely hypothesized that the luchador knew his time on Earth was about to run out, because a little more than a week after the television incident, Heaven got its Saint back. El Santo was [[BecomingTheMask buried wearing his iconic silver mask]]. Nowadays, his son competes in a similar mask, going by the name [[MeaningfulName "El Hijo de Santo"]]--[[LegacyCharacter The Son of (the) Saint]], as well as El Hijo's own son who is training as El Nieto Del Santo. Another grandson, going by the name of Axxel, who is the son of Santo's daughter and thus has not been able to use the El Nieto name, tours the Mexican circuit.

** [[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.
