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]]. He's nice enough to let them live, if only because [[PunchClockVillain they're not racist assholes.]]

* DeadlyDodging: Machete gets into, and ''out of'' a street fight, doing only this (it ends when the other guy breaks his own fist on scaffolding), because [[https://www.alluc.to/stream/machete Machete]] doesn't hit unarmed men. While eating a taco, no less.

* TheUnreveal: The fate of Machete's daughter. Torrez claims in the opening sequence that he'll kill Machete's daughter but we never find out if he did. A later scene implies that Luz is Machete's daughter but we never find out if that's true either.

** And, last but not the least, Danny Trejo! For his entire career, he has been typecast as "that creepy KnifeNut Mexican". Here, he finally gets a leading role as the described character type.
