a character in US westerns who first appeared in a comic strip in 1919. Zorro (which means 'the Fox' in Spanish) wears a black mask (= covering over his eyes) to hide his real identity when fighting evil. He fights with a sword and sometimes makes a sign like the letter 'Z' with it in the air or even on an enemy's shirt. There have been many Zorro films as well as a Walt Disney television series.
