* Another notable aversion: the desert region of ''VideoGame/GuildWars'' are mostly, if not entirely, cactus-free. Appropriate, as the desert regions are all in Elona, the local analogue of north Africa.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/GuildWars2'' introduces cacti in a very odd manner. Prickly pear cacti appear in the Maguuma Wastes as a harvestable plant. Choya, sentient plant creatures based on cacti, also appear... in Elona, where there are no regular cacti plants.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/WildKratts'' episode "Koala Balloon", the brothers cut up a prickly pear cactus to hydrate the [[MisplacedWildlife equally out-of=-place]] young koala they find in the Outback desert. Excusable in that prickly pear is an invasive species in Australia, although the Kratts don't comment on this.

** Strangely averted in ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'' and ''VideoGame/PokemonXDGaleOfDarkness''; Orre doesn't have cacti, even though it's based on Arizona where it would be appropriate.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''TabletopGame/DarkSun'''s Pathfinder interpretation, there are cacti... of course, [[EverythingIsTryingToKillYou this is Dark Sun]], so they try to eat your blood.


Added DiffLines:

* Despite that ''VideoGame/EverOasis'' is set in a place that takes a lot more from Egypt than it does America, cacti are a staple crop in the game.

* Human activity has spread cacti to Hawaii, Australia, and the Mediterranean, giving filmmakers more leeway when depicting desert environments in North Africa or the Outback. Especially the Outback, where introduced cactus species are considered a weed.

* The Neksdor Kingdom in ''VideoGame/{{Miitopia}}'' is a desert littered with [[BuildLikeAnEgyptian Egyptian architecture]] with an Arabian-like backstory. Neither Egypt nor the Middle East naturally have cacti in their deserts and ''yet'' the Neksdor Kingdom is filled with them.
