* ''Film/WayOfTheGun'': The protagonists cross the border with their hostage into Mexico intending to lay low. The location was apparently chosen to excuse the amount of violence and large-scale gunfights that take place without much police interaction. However, federales do show up on one occasion, and the director notes in the DVD commentary how rare it is for them to ''not'' be corrupt in an American film.

* ''Film/{{Traffic}}'': Scenes set in Mexico focus on the drug cartels and have a yellow filter, giving it a parched, washed-out look.

* ''Film/VeraCruz'', in which the Mexicans serve the purpose of poor victims or intimidation by sheer number, the French are there to look luxurious but impractical, and the Americans save the day. The love interest was portrayed by a Spanish actress (Sarita Montiel), and Cesar Romero, the only one of the main actors with Latino ancestry, appeared as a French officer; he used to be typecast before as a Latin lover.

* ''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey'' has the Sand Kingdom, a rare example of a ShiftingSandLand ([[HailfirePeaks partially]]) based on an American desert instead of an African one. At the entrance to the world is Tostarena Town, an adobe village populated by a race of cheerful guitar-strumming, sombrero-toting skeleton folk patterned off of alfeñique skulls.

Furthermore, there are also {{Mayincatec}} ruins outside of town ruled by a giant Olmec-like stone head called Knucklotec, and stone jaguars called Jaxis can be ridden across the level. Unusually, however, there are also sunglasses-wearing EenieMeenieMinyMoai in the level as well.
