* Quite possibly the forerunner of the modern machete would have to be the Medieval falchion. It's got a large, single-edged, often straight and thick blade that could be used in one hand, and simple enough to use that it's become the European equivalent of the SinisterScimitar. It also comes in a variety of shapes and sizes for different utilities, such as cleaver-falchions which are used to butcher meat on hunts.

* In yet another title from RockstarGames, ''VideoGame/TheWarriors'', the machete is one of the most powerful weapons in the game. Unfortunately you'll only get to use it three or four times over the course of the main story.

* In S. M. Stirling's ''{{Emberverse}}'' novels, a modified version of a machete becomes a popular weapon all across post-Change America. The main villains of the second and third trilogy are called [=CUTters=] for a reason..

* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40k'': Orks, especially Slugga Boyz, carry choppas (crudely made melee weapons) and can be made in the shape of jagged machettes (though [[AnAxeToGrind axes]] seem more "Orky").

* ''VideoGame/{{Postal 2}}: Apocalypse Weekend'' added three [[ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks throwable melee weapons]] to the arsenal; the first among them is a machete that [[PrecisionGuidedBoomerang comes back to you]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'': the Ork builder units, Gretchin Squads, have Choppas that look like big machetes. Being grots their bodies are too small and weak to make good on it and their low morale points means they flee more easily than Orks.

** Billy uses a machete (well, more of a really big knife) in when he decides to HoldTheLine in the original ''Film/{{Predator}}'' film. [[spoiler: He gets his spine ripped out]].
** In ''Film/{{Predator 2}}'', Bill Paxton's character also uses a machete he finds on the subway after his gun runs out of ammo. [[spoiler: He gets his spine ripped out]].
** In ''Film/{{Predators}}'' Royce uses a machete(actually the same really large knife as Billy) to clear a path, rather than fight a giant alien big game hunter. [[spoiler: He doesn't get his spine ripped out. Coincidence?]]. He does behead an an alien hunting dog with it, though.
* Selena has one in ''Film/TwentyEightDaysLater'' and she uses it to hack [[spoiler: Mark]] to death.

That's what I'm gonna use to kill you." [[spoiler: He does!]]

** European cultures used the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billhook billhook]] - which is [[BoringButPractical adequate for clearing European shrubs, but nowhere near as cool]] as the machete.

* Being a LawyerFriendlyCameo of Film/{{Machete}}, this is the weapon of choice of Brochete in ''VideoGame/{{Broforce}}''. His primary attack has him throw a machete straight ahead, impaling mooks, while his secondary attack has him throw a barrage of them and can be aimed.
