Ignacio is the main protagonist in the movie Nacho Libre.


Ignacio is the son of a Scandinavian Lutheran missionary and a Mexican deacon. His parents died when he was a young cook. Now a cook for an orphanage, Ignacio dreams of becoming a luchador (lucha libre performer) but wrestling is forbidden by the monastery. Ignacio cares deeply for the orphans, but his food is terrible due to a lack of funds with which to obtain quality ingredients. One night, he is robbed of the orphans' tortilla chips in an alley, and decides to make money to buy better food. He also reveals a desire to be respected by the other friars, to overcome a sanctimonious friar who mistreats him, and consummate his feelings for the newly arrived tutor, Sister Encarnación. Ignacio decides to disregard the monastery's rules and becomes a Luchador in order to make money. He pairs up with the tortilla chip thief, Steven, and they pair as tag partners and join the local competition, with Ignacio changing his name to "Nacho" to keep his identity secret.


As a luchador, Ignacio is a very capable melee fighter. He mainly prefers to use grappling moves, takedowns, and body slams as opposed to punches and kicks.
