* Five-year-old Creator/HPLovecraft was crazy about this kind of "Arabian romanticism", after his mother bought him the Andrew Lang edition. Naming himself [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abdul_Alhazred Abdul al-Hazred]], he insisted that he was a Muslim. His mother bought him some appropriate ceramics and decorations and made him a proper outfit. The sense of exotic enchantment and wondrous cities with elaborate architecture and gardens is enshrined in his Dreamland tales. He probably read the Holy Q'ran too. Fans have identified "The Nameless City" as having been partially inspired by [[http://www.jasoncolavito.com/blog/exploring-iram-of-the-pillars-influence-on-lovecrafts-nameless-city Iram of the Pillars]] and some of the tales in the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shahnameh Shah Nameh]].

* ''WesternAnimation/FantasticMax'', looking for the right kind of sand for his sandbox, ended up in the land of Dinar. There he was mistaken for the long-lost prince, who was actually leading a band of loveable rogues in a ''Theatre/TheDesertSong''-like situation.

* The Gerudo from the ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda Legend of Zelda]]'' (debuting in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'') series seem to be ''very loosely'' based off of this trope, where the harem girls ''are'' thieves. Also, their king, Ganondorf, happens to be the main antagonist in the series, and he happens to be skilled with sorcery. He's not particularly associated with this trope outside ''Ocarina'', however.
** Come ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]'', Ganondorf's relation to the Gerudo has been largely obscured by history; the Gerudo seem to have become a true OneGenderRace, so the harem girls are now the ''entire population'' of their desert town,[[note]]which, incidentally, is the base of the only jewellery store in Hyrule, thereby keeping the link to treasure and gemstones with this setting[[/note]] though [[LadyLand men aren't allowed beyond the gates]]. Additionally, Gerudo soldiers and travellers are often seen wielding scimitars.
