Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz is the communist dictator of Cuba and is an antagonist in the campaign of Call of Duty: Black Ops. He is also mentioned in Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Edit

Castro appears in the mission "Operation 40", where Mason, Woods, and Bowman's mission is to assassinate Fidel Castro. Mason successfully kills a double who they believed to be Castro, but it is later revealed in the same mission by Castro himself that Mason killed a double. When trying to escape in an airplane from Cuba, they are faced by a blockade and Mason is forced to jump off to help cover the escape of the rest of the Op 40 members on the mission. Mason is later captured by Lev Kravchenko and several Tropas soldiers, and Castro turns him over to Nikita Dragovich at the Rusalka.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II Edit

In the beginning of Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Jason Hudson mentions Castro and the Russian forces being all over Angola, preventing the CIA from going in to extract Woods. While the Tropas are seen in Angola, Castro himself does not appear. In the Cuban outpost where Menendez was talking to Kravchenko on the radio, a portrait of Castro is seen next to a Cuban flag.
