Lucha Jack is one of seven artificially bred homunculi, created by Dr. Caligari with the intention of replacing an entire army. Of course, it doesn't work out and Lucha Jack ends up abandoning the CIA to join his brother, Silver Mask. What ensues (other than hilarity) is a series of over-the-top, chainsaw-filled adventures starring the titular Luchador and his assorted group of friends and questionably evil enemies.
Lucha Jack originated in a short webcomic by Bogleech forum member xolta, and quickly gained popularity throughout the site. Eventually, other forums members began to add to the canon with works like Lucha Jack: Origins, the New Adventures of Lucha Jack, and a pair of play-by-post text-adventures. Many notable aspects of the series include its numerous crossovers and cameos from other forum members, Bogleech in-jokes, and even entirely different series'.
The Lucha Jack series contains examples of:
- Absent-Minded Professor: Dr. Xolta is usually portrayed as this.
- Absurdly Sharp Blade: Lucha Jack's chainsaw can cut through dimensions.
- Aloof Ally: Lucha Jack is this most of the time.
- The All-Solving Hammer: Lucha Jack's chainsaw, all the way.
- Big Damn Heroes
- Bloodless Carnage: For a series about Combat Pragmatist luchadors chainsawing down wave after wave of Mooks, there is relatively little bloodshed.
- Bond One-Liner: "Looks like his power want to his head. Haw haw."
- Bond Villain Stupidity: All over the place, mostly from Jesus Lizard and Enemigo.
- Bulletproof Human Shield: Lucha Jack accidentally pulled this off with Fur Bearing Brick
- Cloudcuckoolander: Lucha Jack, Dr. Xolta, and even Sonic appear to be this at some point.
- Hell, you could just go the easy way and say half the cast are these.
- Conspicuous Trenchcoat: Enemigo wears one.
- Curbstomp Battle: Pretty much every fight Lucha Jack takes place in.
- Notably averted in his battle with Fur Bearing Brick, who was able to keep Jack in a chokehold and nearly strangle him until he was used as a Bulletproof Human Shield.
- Death as Comedy
- Disproportionate Retribution: El Vaca Rojo joined Enemigo in an attempt to savagely murder his brother because... he was teased by him.
- Doppelgänger Dating: Lucha Jack and Lucha Jane have a whole lot of similarities, despite wearing different masks.
- Dressing as the Enemy: In Origins, Lucha Jack beats up a pair of soldiers and steals their uniforms, which happen to be little more than a helmet and a rifle.
