* TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons' DarkSun campaign setting. This also crosses over with Burned-Out Earth as the planet of Athas used to be greener before Defiler mages burned away most of the plant life.

* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' Pre-timeskip, everything is desert with giant freakin robots and beastmen. Can't really say the same for post-timeskip though.

** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}''; Mostly averted, since Boston was not hit as hard as the rest of the country. However, the southern areas are still dangerous, mainly due to the presence of the Gunners, a glorified band of raiders, as well as bands of Super Mutants. There's also the [[{{Mordor}} Glowing Sea]] in the southwestern corner, a radioactive wasteland (even by Fallout standards) created by the only nuke to hit the Boston area, which is filled with various types of DemonicSpiders that occasionally wander into the Commonwealth.

* The "Under the Burning Suns" campaign in ''TheBattleForWesnoth'' takes place in the distant future of the main setting of the game, centuries after [[AWizardDidit Mages]] ''raised a second sun into the sky''. Funnily enough, there's a solid gameplay reason for that: Lawful creatures (including mages) are stronger during the day. One way or another, having two suns led to the whole planet going desert. (The campaign features "Desert Elves".)

* The album ''Dopesmoker'' by Sleep has this sort of setting. It's a concept album about the holy pilgrimage of the Weedians as they journey across a vast desert, following the smoke towards riff filled lands. It's like a stoner metal Book of Exodus. The album's iconic cover artwork depicts a caravan of hooded figures with gas masks (that are implied to basically act as bongs) travelling over the sand dunes, with two moons in the sky and a space ship on the horizon. Needless to say, it rules.

* Despite being set in the present day, ''Film/FairGame'' (1986) and {{Film/TheCarsThatAteParis}} (1974) have elements of this trope, most notably {{cool car}}s, arid Badlands, {{sociopath}}ic hoons in {{punk punk}} inspired clothing, and deserted settlements.
