Characters are only listed once, normally under the first applicable subsection in the list. They are listed in order of their first appearance
- Rikochet – Rikochet is an ambitious 10-year-old student at the school of Lucha Libre who strives to be the greatest luchador of all time (aka Luchador Supreme). His signature moves include the "Pulverizing Pinball", in which he turns into a giant pinball following a brief and melodramatic routine, and the "Spinning Top" in which he transforms into a giant spinning top. His greatest role model is "El Rey", and his father is a famous wrestler called "Lone Star". His catchphrase is "Ay, basura" (which literally means "Oh, garbage" in Spanish) whenever he finds himself in a bad situation. He was voiced by Carlos Alazraqui in the first two seasons and Jason Marsden in the third season.
- Buena Girl – Buena Girl is a 10-year-old and the most knowledgeable among El tres Mascaritas. She lives by every rule of The Code of Masked Wrestling, which she uses as guidelines for the Mascaritas' actions and behavior. She has a by the book personality, which often causes friction between her and her friends. Her signature move is the "Buena Bulldozer Of Truth", where she literally transforms into a bulldozer. It is hinted that she has a crush on Rikochet. She is often shown to be a descendant of the Slamazons, an ancient tribe of female masked wrestlers (Play on the Amazons). Normally, Buena Girl remarks, "It's not right!" when something goes against the Code of Masked Wrestling or anything outside the rules. She also alternates the Spanish buena in place of its English counterpart, good in some sentences. Her parents "Buena Mom" and "Buena Dad" are very cheery. She was voiced by Kimberly Brooks.
- The Flea – The Flea is the 8-year-old filthy boy. He has a certain disregard for personal hygiene and usually has no problem with breaking the rules, unlike his friends. He also almost always refers to himself in the third person (though he has occasionally said "I", "me", "mine", or "my" at times). The Flea's signature move is the "Trashcan of Terror", in which he turns into a trashcan. Most of his moves involve flatulence or are dirt-themed. It was revealed in three episodes that The Flea's costume is actually white, but it has turned brown because he never cleans it and prefers it unclean. If he is to eat something "pure and clean" he is transformed into his own opposite, Bueno flea. He is shown to be no match for his little sister Pulgita but she still has a close bond with The Flea. He is normally the cause or victim of some of the strangest and supernatural events such as "The evil masked toilet" and his unwashed hands causing an invasion of evil donuts. He is often mistaken for a very weak student, but if The Flea is actually brave enough, to rival Rikochet. His teeth are sometimes rendered as donkey teeth. Sometimes when the Flea is in trouble or is being knocked a far distance he normally yells "zapatos de rata" which literally means "shoes of rat" or "rat shoes". His parents run the "Slammin' Donuts" donut shop. He is voiced by Candi Milo.

His main opponent is Rikochet. He often bullies Rikochet. He is voiced by Cusse Mankuma.
- Francisco of the Forest – A jungle man/jaguar outfit-like masked wrestler. Like Potato Potata Jr. he is also a heavyweight classed wrestler, but his weight comes more from his muscular build than girth. He is voiced by Scott McNeil.

He can only say his own name, with the exception of the word "Rutavega", the name of his online alias. Snow Pea's costume resembles a peapod, with a zipper that he uses to hide himself. He is the victim of the bad events due to his gentle nature. He is voiced by Kimberly Brooks.
- La Flamencita – She is a masked Flamenco dancer who communicates by clacking her castanets and tapping her feet. Buena girl was the only member of the masked trio who could understand her until rikochet learned how to flamenco dance. She is not voiced.

His powers involve turning imaginary objects he acts out, into real invisible objects. He is voiced by Lee Tockar.
- Cindy Slam – A violent masked wrestler who hates just about everything and can get angry very easily. Most of her appearances in the first two seasons had her growling most of the time with little speech, but in season 3, she started talking regularly more often with a southern accent.

Then, during season 2, they started acting less like bad guys and became friendly towards their fellow students, dropping the whole "bad guy" aspect.
- Private Reinhardt – A military-themed wrestler who wears a gas mask. His name is a play on the name "Private Ryan" and the expression iron heart. Voiced by Rob Paulsen.

El Gundamo's finisher is "Tsunami Slam" where he turns into a giant tsunami the same colors as his costume and rams himself into the opponent.

- Coco Demento – A clown-based wrestler who is clearly a parody of Doink the Clown has been revealed to be the son of a ringmaster. He only seems to satisfy his audiences when performing funny stuff.

He never speaks and prefers to honk with his red nose.
- La Piñata – A wrestler whose costume resembles a piñata. Her costume covers almost her entire body, leaving only her eyes uncovered.

He has the personality of a drill sergeant, harshly reprimanding Rikochet whenever he makes a mistake with his catch phrase, "YOU'RE A DISGRACE!", but he does not always behave honorably himself. He always calls Rikochet "Chico". There is also an actual (fictitious) wrestler named El Rey whom the Three Mascaritas are huge fans of, and whom the action figure is based on. The real El Rey is most likely an amalgam modeled after real-life luchador El Santo and Sgt. Slaughter due to his "action figure" status and because he also starred in many old movies.

Voiced by Carlos Alazraqui, and Dee Bradley Baker.
- Los Lobos de Lucha – They are the wrestling alter-egos of the band Los Lobos. Voiced by Los Lobos.
- Rick O'Shæ – A leprechaun wrestler who resembles Rikochet. He cheats to win all of his matches, which is considered an honor amongst leprechauns. He became upset with Rikochet because Rikochet fought righteously to win his matches, which made Rick O'Shæ a laughing stock among his peers. He sabotaged one of Rikochet's matches by tying his opponent's shoelaces together, and getting him blamed for hitting Mr. Midcarda with a mallet. He then confronted Rikochet on the street, which made everybody believe he was crazy, causing him to be committed to the "funny farm". Rick then brought Rikochet to leprechaun land and challenged him to a fight, which was broadcast to everybody who thought Rikochet was crazy. Rick O'Shæ used multiple cheating methods to try to beat Rikochet, trying to get him to cheat as well. Rikochet eventually found out that fighting fair actually drives Rick O'Shæ insane, and used that to that advantage. Rick O'Shæ used multiple cheating tactics on him, that backfired. At the end, Rikochet tricked Rick into giving him the source of his power, and use it in a vending machine. Rikochet then beat Rikochet, earned the right to his name, and cleared it because the fight was broadcast to the whole world. Rick O'Shæ uses two unlucky charms, a gold coin with a four-leaf clover on it, and a gold coin with an upside-down horseshoe on it, to gain the cheating abilities he uses to win fights.

- El Malefico – El Malefico is the titular main antagonist of the movie Mucha Lucha: The Return of El Malefico. An evil thousand year-old luchador who had been sealed up for 70,000 years. He escaped in "The Return of El Malefico" when the planets align and he controls The Flea into tricking Rikochet into reading a sentence from the Code Of Masked Wrestling backwards, thus freeing him. He then set out to defeat nearly every luchador and sealing them in the Code Of Masked Wrestling thus increasing his power. Rikochet, Buena Girl, and The Flea retrieve the Artifacts Of Buenaness: the Boots of Bravery, the Cape of Courage, and the Tights of Tightness. Using these they beat El Malfico. He then used the Code Of Masked Wrestling to grow to giant size. The Three Mascaritas do the same and defeat him in an epic battle that destroyed most of the city they fought in. He was defeated when Rikochet reversed one of El Malefico's attacks. He was banished back to where he came from. El Malefico is one of the most powerful villains in Mucha Lucha, if not the most powerful. His only real weakness is that he can be banished back but this can only happen if he is defeated which can only happen if one uses the Artifacts of Buenaness and the planets have not come out of alignment after which he becomes unstoppable. His true identity is Jenny Perkins. He also has a minion called Slurf. Voiced by Tim Curry.
