Lucha in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a smug bird villager whose only previous game is New Leaf.

Visually, Lucha is always wearing a luchador mask and outfit. It is bright red with a white face-marking, silver accents, and a noticeable zipper down the back. His true feathers are a dark blue or navy with white tips on the tail. In fact, players can see that color whenever he blinks—further proving that he is, in fact, just wearing a mask. He has a orange orange beak and silvery-white legs.

Lucha's name comes from the Spanish verb "luchar" meaning "to wrestle." His style is heavily based on luchadors—professional wrestlers who participate in the Mexican pro-wrestling genre lucha libre. In Japan, he gets his name, Masukarasu, from a combination of the famous Luchador Mil Mascaras and the Japanese word "karasu" meaning "crow."

This implies that he may, specifically, be a crow. Additionally, his catchphrase is "cacaw."

When players first meet Lucha, he will be wearing a Dragon jacket. As a smug villager, players will often hear him go on about himself. He does get on with most other villagers, however.

Unsurprisingly, Lucha's house in both New Leaf and New Horizons resembles a pro-wrestling arena.

His birthday is Dec. 12, making him a Sagittarius. His coffee preference is a Blend with lots of milk and three spoonfuls of sugar. Lucha's favorite song is K. K. Western.
