Call of Duty: Black Ops
Castro appears in the mission "Operation 40", where Mason, Woods, and Bowman's mission is to assassinate Fidel Castro. Mason successfully kills a double who they believed to be Castro, but it is later revealed in the same mission by Castro himself that Mason killed a double. When trying to escape in an airplane from Cuba, they are faced by a blockade and Mason is forced to jump off to help cover the escape of the rest of the Op 40 members on the mission. Mason is later captured by Lev Kravchenko and several Tropas soldiers, and Castro turns him over to Nikita Dragovich at the Rusalka.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II
In the beginning of Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Jason Hudson mentions Castro and the Russian forces being all over Angola, preventing the CIA from going in to extract Woods. While the Tropas are seen in Angola, Castro himself does not appear. In the Cuban outpost where Menendez was talking to Kravchenko on the radio, a portrait of Castro is seen next to a Cuban flag.
- The role of the then retired former President of Cuba as an antagonist in the Call of Duty series has sparked international controversy. Cuba has accused the U.S. of "trying to do virtually what it has failed to do for 50 years."
- Pictures of him were seen in the Call of Duty: Black Ops II behind the scenes video for Town.
