* 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.

* ''Film/IndependenceDayResurgence''. Congo warlord Dikembe Umbutu loads up with a pair of machetes (that he keeps in a case like a CoolSword) when he realises the aliens are coming back. He puts them to good use.

* This is the weapon used by the killer in ''VideoGame/DeadByDaylight''.
* In ''VideoGame/DeadRising'', Cliff's WeaponOfChoice.
* Dylan from ''VideoGame/DinoCrisis 2'' had a machete as a side weapon at the start of the game and enabled him to hack away at doors that was covered in heavy vegetation.
* ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' has machetes that are quite obviously made from broken lawn mower blades. There is also an option to do a ReverseGrip attack in VATS. Coincidentally Creator/DannyTrejo, the actor who plays Machete, is also in the game, though his character is TheGunslinger. Caesar's Legion uses them extensively, in lieu of the historical ''gladius'', because there's no readily-available stock of period Roman swords in the post-apocalyptic American West. There is a weapon ''called'' the "Machete Gladius" used by high-ranking Legionaries, but it's not a machete ''or'' a gladius, [[KukrisAreKool it's a kukri]].
** A downloadable content bundle includes a more traditionally designed 'broad machete' as a starting melee weapon, notable for being a properly forged and assembled knife rather than a lawnmower blade with a handle. Very useful as an early melee weapon, as it is more powerful, more durable, lighter, and faster than its common counterpart.
