* Inverted in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' and ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', which both take place in the southern hemisphere of [[ConstructedWorld Thedas]]. The fact that "frozen wastes" are located on the southern edge of the map has reportedly confused many a fantasy fan, though.

* UrExample is probably Myth/NorseMythology. From TheOtherWiki: "In the beginning, there were two regions: Muspellsheimr in the south, full of fire, light and heat; and Niflheimr in the north, full of arctic waters, mists, and cold." Between these two was Ginnungagap, into which the world was brought into existence.

Added DiffLines:

* Hyrule in ''TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''. The southwest of the map is the Gerudo Desert, with the rest of the south being a long, tropical beach. The northwest has the Hebra region, which is the coldest area in the game. The sun and moon are always to the north, though, which would place Hyrule in the ''southern'' hemisphere.

In reality, it doesn't quite work this way. You have a cold north... and a cold south. The only "hot" part is in the middle. This representation probably comes from the fact that a majority of of the world's population lives in the Northern Hemisphere, where this trope seems true.

In reality, it doesn't quite work this way. You have a cold north... and a cold south. The only "hot" part is in the middle. This representation probably comes from the fact that 90% of of the world's population lives in the Northern Hemisphere, where this trope seems true.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'', being based on the book ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', plays this straight.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'', being based on the book ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', plays this straight. The farther north you go in Westeros, the colder it gets, progressive from the southernmost deserts of Dorne to the arctic glaciers beyond the Wall in the north.

* Averted with ''TabletopGame/{{Numenera}}''. The region of Matheunis, known in-world as the Cold Desert, is at the southernmost point of the map, and things like the Caecilian Jungle are located closer to the northern edge.



* Averted in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'', which, as with Lord of the Rings, is heavily based on real world Europe. The Chaos Wastes to the north are cold and populated by over-the-top Vikings, while the south has deserts that were home to an ancient civilisation with a bit of a mummy obsession. It's clearly indicated that there is more world beyond this, it's just that travelling there is too dangerous for much information to reach the Old World.
