- "I don't blame myself. They were my first murders."
- —Needles Kane, Twisted Metal (2012)
The machete is the weapon that Needles Kane uses to murder his victims. He has wielded it to kill his family and most of the doctors and nurses at the hospital where he searched for his daughter, Sophie Kane. Needles seemed to have broken it after slamming it on Calypso's desk. The machete is also an item in Calypso's Trophy Case after Needles dies in Sophie's coffin.
The machete is also a weapon that can be used in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. It is the main weapon that Needles uses to attack.
