* In the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' continuum, the [[TheApartheidEra Rimwards Howondalandian]] Assassin, Johanna Smith-Rhodes, is typical of her people in that one of her declared culturally appropriate weapons is a large jungle machete. This is typical of Rimward Howondalandians outside their own country. Even though this weapon is not thought of as all that ''cool'' or ''stylish'' by the Guild, and Swords teacher Emmanuelle les Deux-Epées views it as not so much a sword but a large metal club with a sharp edge. Johanna once defeated a [[LandDownunder Fourecksian]] in the mandatory "do-you-call-that-a-knife?" game by bringing out her machete and politely saying "No, I call ''this'' a knife." Other Rimwards Howondalandians appear in the story ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6791038/1/The-Black-Sheep The Black Sheep]]''.

* In VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker, Link can obtain machetes by disarming or defeating Bokoblins. Besides their use in smashing through wooden barriers, they can serve a stronger alternative to the Hero's Sword (until the player obtains the Master Sword).

* ''VideoGame/FarCry'' and the various expansions and [[VideoGame/FarCry2 two]] [[VideoGame/FarCry3 sequels]] have the machete as the primary melee weapon.

* The Fascine or Gabon knife issued to engineers and light infantry served that purpose in many armies which were too unconnected to Caribbean culture to know about machetes per se. Its similarity is more in its function as a medium sized utility blade rather then its shape. Some for instance were two-edged and the French army favored a fascine knife shaped rather like a [[TheGloryThatWasRome gladius]].

* In the ''Series/TopGear'' Bolivia Special, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXLxszv9eCM James May threatens to cut the head off his fellow presenters]] if they [[RunningGag ram the back of his Suzuki]] on the Yungas Road[[labelnote:Note]][[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yungas_Road Billed as the most dangerous road in the world given the road is built into a cliffside and is lacking protective.....anything.]][[/labelnote]]. When May allows another driver to pass him, Clarkson rams him -[[ThisIsNotWhatItLooksLike probably not on purpose]]- as he was following closely behind him. This enrages May, and he stops to shove a machete into Clarkson's face.

* ''DarkHeresy'' has the Bolo Knife from Malfi, which is the 40K equivalent of a machete. One of the few knives in the game that punches through flak armour.

* On a similar note, the naval cutlass is as close as one can get to a machete during the Age of the Sail. The cutlass was primarily intended for cutting rope, but it also served quite well as a machete whenever sailors were on shore. It was also short, which made it ideal for the close confines of a ship. Nowadays, a machete is now referred to as a 'cutlass' in the English-speaking Caribbean.
