Óscar "El Diablo" Arizpe was a Mexican wrestler. Beside his wrestling career, Óscar Arizpe was a famous mountaineer, listed by several sources as the first ever Nuevo León-born person who reach the top of the Aconcagua mountain out of Mendoza, Argentina on February 12, 1962. However, he died while descending the mountain (around 300 m from the top). More than twenty years after, his body was found.

Speaking of his wrestling career, there's not much information about him. Óscar Arizpe unsuccessfully challenged Jack O'Brien for the Mexican National Lightweight Championship on November 7, 1937. He is also known as the trainer of Blue Demon, and Rubén Juárez.
