Throughout From Dusk Till Dawn[]

In From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter, he is awaiting Johnny at their hideout and spots Johnny walking towards him. He asks why Joaquin and the others weren't there, and he tells him that Chato is claiming he's the new "jefe". Johnny tells him to bring Chato out and after Chato is killed, he laughs alongside the rest of the gang. After Reece says there might be gold in Bierce's suitcase, the gang goes after the stagecoach to rob it. After killing the two drivers, Joaquin goes towards the door and looks away for a moment, he gets kicked in the crotch by Ambrose, causing him to throw up blood. He threatens him, but Johnny tells him to back off. He takes John's hat and gropes Mary, before the gang rides off again.

He witnesses Johnny hang Reece, and rides off with Erasmo to Tierre Negra. The two are then revealed to have stopped at La Tetilla del Diablo and have some fun with the girls there. He and Erasmo come out to get some drinks, and he sees that John is beating Erasmo and after John kills him, Joaquin goes after him. After the revelation that the establishment has vampires, he and the remaining humans go into another room and walk through the tunnels. When Johnny asks if anyone else was bitten, Joaquin flashes back to when one of the girls bit him and then he shot her, but he hides it. After some moments, he gets a more vampiric appearance and disappears. He then attacks and bites John, and he is then staked with a torch by Johnny.
