** Inversely, the Manteño-Huancavilca culture complex in coastal Ecuador was suggested once to be of Mayan origin, due to some artistic influences and a local native myth about civilization being brought to the region by a foreign king who came from the sea.

** During the Spanish conquest, many indigenous peoples allied with the Spanish and re-settled far from their lands of origin, including Tlaxcalans in northern Mexico (and as far as New Mexico and Texas) and Nicaraguans in Peru.



* The ceramic of the Moche in northwest Peru (100-700 AD) depict warriors in falcon or eagle-like suits, who are (naturally) unrelated to the Aztec eagle warriors of Mesoamerica.

Added DiffLines:

* Through ''Film/FromDuskTillDawn'', the Titty Twister goes from Mayincatec-inspired nightclub to vampire den to a full-blown Mayincatec sacrificial pyramid almost buried in the Mexican desert. All within a short distance of the Mexican-American border.


Added DiffLines:

** In "The Mysterious Voyage of Homer", Homer's spiritual experience is mostly based on the American Southwest but with a few Mesoamerican trappings added, such as an Aztec-looking pyramid.

Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'':
** 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.
** Ixalan is a more complete world, and has ''two'' factions that more properly resemble their real world counterparts: the Sun Empire, modeled after the Aztec with a few Incan trappings, and the River Heralds, a group of merfolk that is the local analogue of the Maya.

* ''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]]."

** The game does largely avert the trope, but [[NecessaryWeasel has to use it to a certain extent to make the game function properly]], such as using Eagle Warriors as a common unit to Mayans and Aztecs rather than just Aztec. Also, while both civilisations have exactly the same architectural style, this is due to putting its societies into aesthetic groups: Chinese/Japanese/Koreans/Mongols, British/Celts/Franks/Spanish, Byzantines/Saracens/Persians/Turks and Huns/Goths/Vikings/Teutons all look the same too.

Both Aztec and Maya wonders are pyramids, but are in totally different shapes that are accurate to their respective cultures.


Added DiffLines:

* Refreshingly averted in ''VideoGame/Medieval2TotalWar'' Americas Campaign. The Aztecs and Mayas are both playable and are shown to be very different but with some overlapping features, for instance both worship the Feathered Serpent but call him Quetzalcoatl and Kukalkan respectively.
** The Inca are nowhere to be found because the map doesn't go south of Guatemala, but the Tarascans are present and they originated in the Andes.
** While the Aztecs are [[SmallReferencePools the only Nahuatl speakers]] most people know, the Tlaxcalla and Chichimeca are also present.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/HorizonZeroDawn'': the Carja tribe displays many of these traits. Their capital city Meridian is a hybrid of several South American styles of architecture, and before the beginning of the game they were also said to have offered ritual sacrifices to the sun on behalf of their ruler, who is known as the Sun-King. Their priesthood is also frequently seen wearing elaborate headdresses.

** The ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'' campaign setting features[[note]]Well, feature''d'' after the Spellplague, Maztica being switched with the counterpart on an alternate dimension[[/note]] the continent of Maztica, far to the west across the ocean from Faerun, with a dominant culture, the Nexalans, based closely on the Aztecs.

Based [[FantasyCounterpartCulture so closely]] on the Aztecs, in fact, that it might technically not count as [=Mayincatec=]: rather than generic ancient South American culture, the Nexalans ''are'' [[ShownTheirWork Aztecs]]. With a quick word-find-and-replace for proper nouns, and a light sprinkling of taking the mythology at face value (this was Creator/{{TSR}} policy at the time, though Maztica was one of the most severe offenders). Additionally, the sourcebook ''Serpent Kingdoms'', describing the society and history of the yuan-ti (a race of evil snake people) gives them some distinctly Mesoamerican-inspired architecture and culture.
