* Not exactly the Philippine military per se, but one of the handlers in ''GunslingerGirl'' seemed to carry a Floro MK-9 submachinegun. The MK-9 is a Filipino-made SMG designed for local police and military use, but has met little success in international sales. Its appearance qualifies thus also qualifies it as a [[RareGuns rare gun]].

* Imperial Guard Novel ''Flesh and Iron'' by Henry Zhou, pits a Riverine Imperial Guard regiment against Chaos rebels that are clearly inspired by actual Filipino guerrillas and rebel groups throughout the 20th Century.
** The entire planet where the novel is set in (Solo Baston, the name itself being a form of one-sword/stick fighting within the eskrima fighting system) is actually tribal Philippines RecycledInSpace.

* While not ''quite'' a direct reference, Quatre's Maganac Corps in ''GundamWing'' are hinted as either descended from Filipinos (particularly overseas workers who chose to stay in the Middle East), or Middle-Easterners who have adopted Filipino traits. Given that the name most likely came from ''kamag-anak'' or ''mag-anak,'' which roughly translate to "close relation," it would make sense.

* Chapter 80 of ''TheSalvationWar: Pantheocide'' had Philippine Scout Rangers as one of the several international special forces which managed to sneak into the Eternal City in Heaven before the main invasion of the city occurred. Also included was a "Filipino time" in-joke in that the Philippine soldiers jibe the American Marines of the main invasion force for being three minutes late.

The Armed Forces of the Philippines can trace its beginnings to the Katipunan guerrilla forces against Spain in 1896. When they won their independence in 1898, they realized that the YanksWithTanks were another problem; the Americans wiped out the Filipino rebels, finishing the job in 1915 after putting down the last resistance among the Moros. The Philippine military was officially reformed in 1935 when America promised them independence, but when the [[ImperialJapan Japanese]] came in 1941, they had little weaponry. They had some fierce battles, but the U.S. Army decided that it was ThoseWackyNazis that they had to deal first; eventually, they were forced to surrender and march from Bataan to Tarlac (the infamous Death March).
