Trivia

  • In Saints Row: The Third, the Luchadores are one of the 3 rival gangs.
  • In Saints Row: The Third, the mask worn by Killbane is red and green, while the mask in game is either blue and yellow or red and yellow.
  • This type of wrestling mask is used in "lucha libre", a term used in Mexico and other Spanish-speaking countries for a form of professional wrestling.
  • The word "luchador" translates literally to "fighter", although it can also mean "wrestler".
  • The description references the Cuban Missile Crisis, a confrontation between USA and USSR in October of 1962 after it came to light that the Soviet government was secretly building nuclear missile bases in Cuba. It is considered that the Cuban Missile Crisis was the closest the world ever came to nuclear war.
  • Along with a few other games, Saints Row: The Third was not available for pre-order in the United Kingdom, making this item unobtainable in Genuine quality in that region.
