In RealLife, the Maya, the Inca (of whom the Quechua people descended from), and the Aztecs were all distinct cultures separated by thousands of miles. To be fair, the Aztecs/Mexica (who speak Nahuatl) and the Maya lived in what is now Mexico (which comes from Mexihtli). Their actual history is interesting and diverges from the trope quite a bit. However, keep in mind that the trope is frequently also valid in modern Latin America.

Under HollywoodHistory, all historical Mexican, Central, and South American nations are lumped into one exotic and often barbaric people: the Mayincatec, featuring aspects of the Maya, Inca and Aztec, plus many others (especially the Olmec, one of the oldest, as more continues to be discovered about them). It's a tossed salad of exciting bits from all their histories, with a topping of myth and fiction. And the dressing is [[ThePowerOfBlood blood]].

* On ''WesternAnimation/TheAngryBeavers,'' in the episode "Moronathon Man," Norbert ingests a potion that makes him stupid. (Meanwhile, Dagget becomes a super-genius, because the potion ''couldn't'' make him any stupider.) [[NoodleIncident Somehow]], Norbert ends up on an island, where he sits atop a Mayan or Aztec pyramid, being worshipped by people who think he's a god, and fed fruit. The worshippers bow down and repeat his mantra: "DUUUUUUHHHH!!!!"

* ''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.
