* 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.

* Rick Grimes has a machete on ''Series/TheWalkingDead''. It's among a gun stash he hides before entering Terminus, which he describes in a bit of GunPorn after being captured: "...AK-47, .44 magnum, automatic weapons, night scope, there's a compound bow aaaand a machete with a red handle.... That's what I'm gonna use to kill you." [[spoiler: He does!]]

* 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 as he was following closely behind him. This enrages May, and he stops to shove a machete into Clarkson's face.
