He can be best described as a "luchador" with a heart of gold. A bit naive but well intentioned, he thinks most problems can be solved with brute force alone.
Inside the ring he acts cocky as it's all part of the show. But outside of it he's surprisingly grounded and humble, despite his cartoon having garnered millions of devoted fans.
In his adventures outside of his cartoon, after a rather grisly encounter, he met a kind but shy frog nurse with which he ended up falling in love with. Since then Nopalito and "Millie" have been inseparable, sticking together through thick and thin. They arrive at Void City in search of a new home and opportunities.
Regarding his powers, Nopalito has more to show than an unconquerable spirit and flashy wrestling moves.
As a toon he is naturally durable by default, but also has the added ability of gaining strength proportional to the spiciness of any ingested substance. This can come from something as big as a full meal, to simply drinking hot sauce alone. It should be noted that even though he has great resistance to spiciness, he might still overdo it and burn out, causing him to faint from the burning sensation.
Another trait he has as a toon is being able to unconsciously summon a crowd, which will cheer for him when the situation calls for it. These situations can range from comedic to celebratory, but they always appear no matter the place he's in.
-Mexican Cumbia music
- Being a latin toon, he started off having little to no knowledge of the english language. Millie has since been hard at work trying to change that.
- As with every luchador, their secret identity is their most prized possession. Only people close to his heart have seen his actual face.
- He is a surprisingly good cook.
- After the aforementioned grisly encounter, Nopalito developed a slight fear of knife wielding assassins.
- When "spiced up", Nopalito has a few visual queues that show the level of strength he's currently at. These queues can vary from simply breaking a sweat to having steam or fire come out of his mouth. Once he's approaching a burn out, his entire face will start steaming while glowing red.
-While the crowd of loyal fans only seem to appear when a situation calls for it, they are all sentient and can be interacted with.
