The show was wildly popular in Spanish-speaking countries the world over, including the Hispanic communities of the American Southwest and syndicated reruns are still a fixture of Spanish language channels in the US today. This popularity stemmed mainly from two things: the show's uncanny ability to pull off rip-roaring actions sequences despite its shoestring budget and Mexican actor Miguel Jurado's unintentionally hilarious attempts at affecting a European Spanish accent.

Tropes present in ''Monsignor Martinez'':

* ArtisticLicenseReligion: Let's just say the show's portrayal of Catholicism is rather... stylized.
* BeenThereShapedHistory: A few episodes feature flashbacks where Martinez participated in important historical events, most notably the controversial episode where he assassinates Pope John Paul I.
* BoozeFlamethrower: The iconic scene where the Monsignor performs this trick with communion wine.
* CaliforniaDoubling: The series was shot almost entirely in Mexico but many episodes feature Martinez traveling to exotic locales, usually other Catholic countries. The most amusing example would probably be the time they had a suburb of Mexico City filling in for ''Dublin, Ireland'' of all places.
* CatchPhrase: "Vaya, (DramaticPause) Con Dios..."
* FakeNationality: Martinez supposedly hails from an unnamed mountain village in Spain ([[UnreliableNarrator maybe]]), but the actor playing him is from Mexico. This had some amusing consequences, as seen below.
* FakingTheDead: The Monsignor gets a rare PetTheDog moment when he learns that a pair of twins who are heirs to a major fortune he's been sent to kill are only babies and fakes their death in a staged car accident rather than assassinate them.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The show is hugely popular in Spain... as a source of unintentional comedy due to how ridiculous the Monsignor's "Spanish" accent sounds to actual Spaniards. His various mispronunciations have made the show a FountainOfMemes in Spain.
* LatexPerfection: In one episode a rival assassin attempts to steal Martinez's identity using a latex mask of him.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: One of the few times Martinez drops his iconic poker face is when he's forced into killing ThePope.
* OneOfUs: The show's creator is a huge anime fan and admitted that Monsignor Martinez is partly inspired by ''{{Golgo 13}}''.
