[[folder:Main Characters]]
!!El Santos
-> '''Voiced by''': [[AuthorAvatar Jose Trinidad Camacho (aka Trino)]] (original animated shorts) and Daniel Gimenez Cacho (movie and promotional shorts)
The [=titular=] hero... [[DesignatedHero if you can call him like that]]. A MaskedLuchador, he fights against Tetona Mendoza and many of his rivals and enemies, inside and outside the ring, including zombies, aliens, demons and many other scum, [[GoKartingWithBowser when the plot asks for it]].
* AuthorAvatar: For his creator, Trino.
* BiTheWay: Not only he also had sex with females, but also with ''males'', especially with his best friend, Corporal Valdivia. And this is also PlayedForLaughs.
* DesignatedHero: Depending of the plot, he can be NotSoDifferent from the rest of the villains. In fact, one of the stories has him, Corporal Valdivia and El Diablo Zepeda ''robbing a bank together''.
* DungFu: Used continuosly in the comics and also in the movie [[spoiler:when he tries to escape from prison from Maruca and her cronies. It didn't work]].
* {{Fartillery}}: And [[ToiletHumor he goes beyond of that]].
* {{Gonk}}: Seriously, he barely looks ''human'' and he resembles more like a fat monkey with a wrestler mask instead (in fact, one strip has him reveal at the end that he's not wearing a mask; his face really looks like that).
* KavorkaMan: While mostly his relationship is with Tetona, he's also had his rounds with La Rata Maruca, a harem of mermaids, Las Poquianchis del Espacio (who, to be fair, bang anything that moves) and a brief marriage with La Kikis Cocuera.
* '''{{Jerkass}}''': To the core.
* MaskedLuchador
* MrViceGuy: Not only he is a {{Jerkass}} with capital "J", he can indulge in any kind of vice, including getting drugged if the plot demands it for some laughs.
* LazyBum: Sometimes
* {{Parody}}: Of ElSanto or more exactly, of his non-wrestling ''persona'', since in RealLife, he had a really ''thick'' and exaggerated Mexico City accent in his voice, and he sounded like a hick. This was hidden is his movies, because [[SameLanguageDub his voice was dubbed by professional voice actors and he never used his real voice in-film]]. Ironically, both Trino in the original shorts and Daniel Gimenez in the film are from the state of Jalisco, and they use a notable Guadalajara accent in their voice.
* TheStoner: Just like [[AuthorAvatar his author]].

!!La Tetona Mendoza
-> '''Voiced by''': Sara Valenzuela (original shorts), Regina Orozco (movie and promotional shorts)
El Santos' former ([[GoKartingWithBowser When the plot asks for it]]) wife and rival. She's the only one who can kick his butt at daily basis and also the main villain in the animated movie.
* AuthorAvatar: Of her co-creator, Jis (who is male).
* [[spoiler:BabiesEverAfter: At the end of the film with El Santos]].
* BigBad: In many stories from the comic book, and in the animated movie.
** [[spoiler:NonActionBigBad: Other than giving orders to her cronies and Peyote, and maybe punching Santos, she doesn't do too much to fight back at the end, since she was too drunk]].
* {{Brawnhilda}}
* FullFrontalAssault: Many times, in the comic books, she will fight ''naked'' against El Santos or anyone who stands in her way. And even when she's dressed, she still has her boobs hanging out, including when wearing ''a wedding dress''.
* '''GagBoobs''': Heck, her name means ''Big-titted'' in Spanish.
* HighClassCallGirl: She's a prostitute and the owner of a brothel named ''Tetona's Palace''.
* IHaveBoobsYouMustObey: Invoken sometimes in the comic books.
* [[spoiler:KarmaHoudini: In the film: At the end, she is never punished for everything she did a as president, since El Santos marries her at the end. Though, as a consolation, she doesn't seem very pleased with the married life.]].
* [[KavorkaMan Kavorka Woman]]: A rare female example: She's supposed to be a MsFanservice in-universe, but outside of it, she's pretty digusting and ugly. The fact she's a prostitute helps. Her looks can be a reference over the Mexican stereotype that many prostitutes are butt-ugly.
* TheLadette: She's as vulgar, disgusting and loudier as the rest of the male characters
* [[NoBadassToHisValet No Badass To Her Valet]]: She's the only one who can face Santos face-to-face in a fight and win, not to mention being the only one whose Santos is ''really'' afraid.
* {{Parody}}[=/=]MeaningfulName: Her name is a composite name from two famous Mexican wrestlers: [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ray_Mendoza Ray Mendoza]] and ''La Tonina'' Jackson.
* TooHotForTV: There's a good reason why we can't show a full image of her, if her name already gives you a hint.
* WildHair
!!El Peyote Asesino (The Killer Peyote)
-> '''Voiced by''': Juan Romo (original shorts), José María Yazpik (movie and promotional shorts)
He is (aside from Tetona) one of the biggest rivals El Santos ever had. An anthropomorphic ''peyote'' plant, he's El Santos' archrival and also Tetona's former lover (when the plot ask for it).
* AGodIAm: Downplayed and PlayedForLaughs in his [[AllThereInTheManual backstory]], as being a peyote plant, he's worshipped as a god by many Native Mexicans, but he never talks about the topic anywhere.
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: He's a green, walking ''peyote (or mescaline)'' plant
* BerserkButton: In the film: [[spoiler:Don't call him a ''hillbilly'' and telling him his glasses are fake]].
* BiggusDickus: According with [[AllThereInTheManual his backstory]], and [[{{Squick}} you don't really want to know about the rest of the topic]].
* CoolShades
* [[spoiler:TheDragon: For Tetona in the film]].
* [[spoiler:DragonAscendant: Becomes the main villain at the final stage of the film after Tetona was too drunk to fight back against El Santos]].
* [[spoiler:AFateWorseThanDeath: After slipping with a avocado peel that Santos left in the ground, he crashes his back against the floor, breaking his spine and left him quadraplegic for life]].
* ManOfWealthAndTaste
* [[spoiler:TheMole: He faked joining forces with Santos and both characters went to Sahuayo, Michoacan trying to find the Zombie virus for bringing back the Sahuayo Zombies back again, only for betraying Santos and Valdivia, bringing them to Tetona, and destroying the virus]].
* {{Parody}}[=/=]MeaningfulName: He's named after another classic Mexican wrestler, ''El Medico Asesino'' (The Killer Doc)
* PoisonousFriend: Both figuratively and ''literally'', as he drugs out a kid in the film when [[{{Irony}} filming a commercial break against drugs]].
* SophisticatedAsHell: He's elegant, intelligent... and also as foul-mouthed like everyone else.
* TheRival: of El Santos
* YouAreWhoYouEat: ''Literally'', as he continuosly eats parts of himself without ill-effects.
** {{Autocannibalism}}
!!Corporal Valdivia
-> '''Voiced by''': Juan Romo (original shorts), Hector Jimenez (movie and promotional shorts)
El Santos' No.1 fan, and his biggest (and only friend). Valdivia is a cop who works in the same wrestling arena Santos fights and he's the one who always warns him when there's some kind of crime or problem around.
* [[spoiler:[[AndThenJohnWasAZombie And Then Corporal Valdivia was a Zombie]]: In the film, he later reveals he's half-zombie]].
* BadCopIncompetentCop: He's pretty useless as a cop, as he always asks help from El Santos for everything.
* [[spoiler:BiggusDickus: Implied, since he's half-zombie]].
* ButtMonkey
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: His name is rarely used outside of the movie. Most people just reffer to him as "Cabo" (Corporal).
* MeaningfulName: Named after the former soccer player, Javier "El Cabo" Valdivia, (who played for Club Chivas Guadalajara) being ''El Cabo'' translated as ''The Corporal''.
* MuggleBestFriend: He's the only character who is not a wrestler or fights in any way.
* NiceGuy: He's the only person in both the comics and the movie who is not a jerk. [[spoiler:There's a good reason for that. He's half-zombie]].
* UndyingLoyalty: Towards El Santos, a fact frequently mocked by everyone against him or El Santos.
[[folder:Other Characters]]
!!Los Zombis de Sahuayo (The Sahuayo Zombies)

The regular zombie mooks El Santos fights continuosly in the original comic books and also in the movie, albeit their role are expanded considerably in the film.
* BiggusDickus: According with some documents El Santos and Valdivia found in Sahuayo in the film.
* EverythingsDeaderWithZombies
* [[spoiler:GoodAllAlong: Unfortunately for them, being a NiceGuy in ''El Santos'' universe is a symbol of being a nuisance]].
* OurZombiesAreDifferent:[[spoiler: In the film, despise being zombies, they're ''much smarter and kinder'' than our heroes]].
* ZombieMooks
!!La Rata Maruca (Maruca The Rat)
-> '''Voiced by''': Irene Azuela
A regular character from the comics, Maruca is half-human half-rat girl who was a ButtMonkey of sorts there, but in the film, she gets a more extended role and became into one of the most annoying enemies El Santos has to face.
* AscendedExtra: From being bullied by El Santos in the comic books to being a big pain in El Santos' ass later on in the film.
* [[spoiler:TheBaroness: In the film]].
* BreastExpansion: She was [[ACupAngst flatter as a table]] in the comics, but in the film she gets a pair of bigger assets, due to [[GagBoobs Tetona]] being now her boss.
* ButtMonkey: In the comic books, but NOT in the film.
* {{Expy}}: While Maruca preceds her by 20 years, she looks a bit like [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Nazrin]], especially in the movie, except she's a {{Jerkass}}.
** During the [[spoiler:{{Animesque}} sequences during the prison soccer match, she looks like Franchise/TopoGigio instead]].
* TheFakeCutie: She's somewhat cute, but she's a bigger {{Jerkass}} like everyone in the comic book and the film.
* GrumpyBear: Especially in the film.
* PurpleProse: Parodied ''like hell'' in the comic books and in the promotional movie shorts: She speaks using a very rigid, formal version of the Mexican Spanish dialect, who is normally used in formal backgrounds, like law firms, companies, etc., but is '''NOT recommended''' to speak in RealLife in Mexico for everyday use, since it sounds extremely distant and borderline arrogant for everyone else there. She drops this in the film and she speaks normally like everyone else.
!!El Charro Negro (The Dark Charro)
-> '''Voiced by''': [[Creator/CheechAndChong Cheech Marin]]
A ''charro'' dressed in black and surrounded in myth. He ends helping Santos later on the film [[spoiler:while escaping from prison]].
* AscendedExtra: From being just another background character in the comic books to [[spoiler:helping El Santos to escape from Tetona and Maruca's clutches]].
* MeaningfulName: Named after a character from the same name from a series of Mexican films from the 1950s, who is, in turn, named after an old mexican urban legend about a ghost dressed as a charro who tempts unwary travelers with gold.
* [[AmericansAreCowboys Mexicans are Charros]]
* [[spoiler:NarratorAllAlong: At the end of the film, it turns out he's the one narrating his adventures all this time]].
* [[SurprisinglyGoodEnglish Surprisingly Good Spanish]]: Meta-example: Despite being Hispanic, Cheech Marin does NOT speak Spanish natively, so his lines had to be written phonetically, but not only he manages to speak the language very well, albeit in a slight odd way, but also speak with a Mexican accent.
