Los Metálicos started out with brothers Jesús Javier Hernández Silva and Ismael Hernández Solís adopting the enmascarado characters Oro and Plata with identical masks, only difference was that one had a gold pattern and the other had a silver pattern. The two were soon joined by a wrestler known as Platino to form a trio tag team known as Los Metalicos. Platino was not a member of the Hernández but actually veteran wrestler Chamaco Valaguez under the mask. The team was quickly matched up against another trios team, a rudo trio known as Los Destructores, with whom they had a series of very good matches. The fans quickly responded to the young team, vocally supporting the team when they wrestled, and showing appreciation for the fact that Plata and Platino were skilled high flying wrestlers and Oro had an aerial wrestling style that was unusual for the time. Oro's frequent and skilled execution of moves off the top rope helped usher in a style change in Lucha Libre as wrestlers started to incorporate more moves like planchas and topes, inspired by Oro's performances. Oro and Plata won their first professional wrestling championship just over a year after their debut, defeating Los Destructores to win the Mexican National Tag Team Championship on December 4, 1991. The following week a rematch between the two teams ended in a controversial manner and the championship was vacated. The following week Los Destructores regained the vacant title.
