* TabletopGame/{{GURPS}} ''[[http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/arabiannights/ Arabian Nights]]'' is about roleplaying within this trope, while some lands within the world of ''[[http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/banestorm/ GURPS Banestorm]]'' reflect it.'' [[http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/ottoman/ GURPS Castle Falkenstein: The Ottoman Empire]]'' is about a version of the Ottoman Empire, in a {{steampunk}} world, that's very heavy on the Arabian Nights elements.

* ''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.

* Creator/{{Disney}}'s ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' franchise. The original "Literature/{{Aladdin}}" is nominally set in China, but given the fact that "China" as described in the story is identical to the average Arabian city of the time, it's likely that the author was just engaging in a bit of exoticism.[[note]] It is also possible that the "China" described in the story is East Turkestan � a.k.a Xinjiang � an area populated by the Muslim Uyghur people that today is controlled by China, but wasn't then.[[/note]]

It is possible that it is the protectorate of Sogdiana, which was controlled by the Chinese Empire at the time.[[/note]]
