* If they use a specific god, it'll most likely be Quetzalcoatl, the Plumed Serpent. Since they'll probably know [[SadlyMythtaken nothing beyond his name]], they'll likely show human sacrifice to him, although he was perhaps the only god in many pantheons who didn't ask for it.

* ''VideoGame/MetalSlug'': the very first thing Marco and co. see in the series is a gigantic Olmec head in the background at the start of the first game's first level. ''Metal Slug 5'' features Aztec-like shamen and their temple full of traps.

* ''Anime/RahXephon'' uses the Mayan Long Count calendar, but also the Aztec terms [[ArcWords ollin, ixtli, and yolteotl.]] In fact, knowing what those words mean in Aztec thought is essential [[MindScrewdriver for even understanding the story.]]
* The ancient Ord tribe whose semi-ruined temples ([[spoiler: well, ''entirely'' ruined temples by the time the BigBad has messed them up]]) are featured in ''Anime/ExplorerWomanRay'' seems to be pretty much along these lines. It's claimed they used to worship the Sun and their temples have hidden treasure which no-one was able to find; their true secret is much more interesting.

** The classic CarlBarks' DonaldDuck story ''Lost In the Andes'' has Donald and the nephews discover a lost, vaguely Inca-ish civilization where everything is cube-shaped or full of right angles, even the people and the wildlife. The natives are friendly, but consider it a terrible crime to produce anything ''round.'' Naturally, the nephews have brought bubble gum. HilarityEnsues.

* The [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magdalena_Solis Hernández Brothers Sect]] in 1960s Mexico was a scam that took advantage of the ignorance of their iliterate victims to claim "tributes" in exchange for favors from mysterious "Inca gods in the mountains" (victims and scammers alike being unaware that the Incas lived in South America). It went off the rails when the brothers, in order to keep TheMasquerade when two victims were becoming wary, decided to bring in a psychopathic prostitute, Magdalena Solís, and present her as the incarnation of the "Inca goddess" they were prophets of. Solís rapidly seized absolute control and, [[HiddenDepths being actually versed in Aztec mythology]], presented herself as the goddess [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coatlicue Coatlicue]] and demanded human sacrifices by [[AndShowItToYou removal of the heart]]. [[OhCrap Oops.]]
