** LindsayLohan as a [[DrugsAreBad drug-addicted]], [[ReallyGetsAround slutty]] MafiaPrincess who likes to stream her naughty bits on the internet (willingly, this time) alongside her mother. And whose father makes some... unfortunate comments about her.
** MichelleRodriguez as an [[ExaggeratedTrope over-the-top version]] of her [[TypeCasting usual]] [[SpicyLatina sexy]], badass Latina roles. [[VasquezAlwaysDies Her death doesn't even merit a spoiler.]] [[spoiler: Her [[NotQuiteDead surviving and]] [[MetaCasting largely subverting her typecasting]] makes her reveal at the end serious, ultimate badass.]]

* LatinoIsBrown: The red-headed kid in the Latino community has to explain that he's not Mexican, he just grew up in the neighborhood. Torrez appears to be of mostly Spanish ancestry, explaining away his been portrayed by a white actor.

* GenreSavvy: The guards in black suits go through a [[ZigZaggingTrope zigzagging version of the trope]]. At first, they are GenreBlind enough to let in a badass-looking Mexican with [[ImprovisedWeapon sharp garden tools]], but quickly realize - and {{Lampshade}} - that they were suffering from PlotInducedStupidity. When Machete pays a second visit, they are GenreSavvy enough to surrender to him, understanding his role as the ActionHero and theirs as [[{{Mooks}} expendable goons]]. He's nice enough to let them live, if only because [[PunchClockVillain they're not racist assholes.]]

Added DiffLines:

* PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy: Interestingly subverted with Julio: He's not a white dude trying to be Latino, he's a white dude who was ''adopted as an infant by a Latino family,'' and grew up immersed in that culture, giving him a far more intimate understanding of it than most white people could ever have.

** [[spoiler: Osiris, who disappears before the climax, due to his death scene getting left on the cutting room floor. Remnants of von Jackon's vigilantes manage to escape and continue gunning down people they think are Mexicans. Torrez' female sidekick just walks off, pouting.]]

* {{Determinator}}: Machete has a bullet in his head and got shot in his shoulder. This won't stop him from [[BadAss kicking ass.]]

* ExploitationFilm: Taking plenty of cues from {{Blaxploitation}}, the movie has the dubious honor of [[DeadUnicornTrope both creating and spoofing]] the hitherto nonexisting "Mexploitation" genre.

* {{Badass}}: Considering it's an action movie directed by Robert Rodriguez, [[WorldOfBadass pretty much the entire cast]]. Especially Machete himself. One villain says he's "CIA, FBI, DEA, all rolled up into one mean fucking burrito."



* DashingHispanic: Machete himself. One villain says he's "CIA, FBI, DEA, all rolled up into one mean fucking burrito."



* GenreSavvy: The guards in black suits go through a [[ZigZaggingTrope zigzagging version of the trope]]. At first, they are GenreBlind enough to let in a {{Badass}}-looking Mexican with [[ImprovisedWeapon sharp garden tools]], but quickly realize - and {{Lampshade}} - that they were suffering from PlotInducedStupidity. When Machete pays a second visit, they are GenreSavvy enough to surrender to him, understanding his role as the ActionHero and theirs as [[{{Mooks}} expendable goons]].
