* ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'' is pretty definitively set in the Incan Empire, although the word "Inca" is never said, and Kuzco's theme song guy refers to them as "Mesoamerican", which the Incans really weren't. Still, the mountain-and-jungle setting, the farming of llamas and alpacas, and the overall art style are all specifically Incan, as is Kuzco's name; Cusco (or Cuzco) was the Incan capital (and is still a provincial capital in Peru today). The animated series ''WesternAnimation/TheEmperorsNewSchool'' has decided to be a bit more specific and explicitly confirm that they are Incan, usually by way of jokes such as "[[Series/AmericanIdol Incan Idol]]."
* ''WesternAnimation/TheRoadToElDorado'' features a sort of generic South American native culture that has a lot of aspects of this trope albeit VERY Mayan flavored. Including the sacrifices--though that's mostly the bad guy trying to do those, presumably to fuel his BloodMagic.

** In the plane of Alara, which has been splintered into different shards each lacking two of the colors of mana. Naya has Red, Green and White mana but no Blue or Black, resulting in a sunlit jungle world with no need for progress and ambition. It's inhabitants are content to worship giant beasts as gods, down to occasional HumanSacrifice, and are fairly hedonistic. They are deliberately modeled after the Aztec and these aspects of their culture, but as the world as a whole loss their drive for more complex civilizations and has in fact lost their former empires they also resemble the Maya in this regard.

* ''TheFountain'' by Creator/DarrenAronofsky, averts the trope by sticking steadfastly (and [[ShownTheirWork accurately]]) to Mayan imagery and symbolism. Xibalba, the Mayan underworld is represented as a golden nebula. The historically-based section [[note]]a fictional novel-within-novel written by one of the characters[[/note]] features Conquistadors, Mayan warriors and priests, and a step-pyramid temple based on the actual archaeological site of Uxmal [[spoiler:wherein lies the TreeOfLife]]. Within the work the Mayas are a collapsed civilization (which they were when the Conquistadors arrived.) The hidden pyramid is their last, secret hiding place, clearly already decrepit and neglected, with only a few dozen devoted guardians.

* ''[[Literature/SaveThePearls Revealing Eden]] features descendants of the Aztec Empire living alongside an Ecuadorian tribe, when in reality the Aztecs never expanded past Central America. One scene also features the stone terraces built by the Inca -- but somehow the Aztecs get the credit for building them.
