* Inverted in ''Franchise/DragonAge'', 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.

* In [[Franchise/Dishonored]] the northernmost known country is the eternally frozen Tyvia. The London-esque Dunwall is further south. Even further south is Serkonos which is portrayed as rather warm and temperate. Pandyssia is portrayed as existing somewhere to the south-east of the Empire and is covered in tropical jungles.

* 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.

*** Kalimdor: The deserts of Silithus and Tanaris and the jungle of Un'goro in the south, the snowy mountain of Winterspring in the north.
*** Eastern Kingdoms: Excluding the Lordaeron sub-continent, you have the Stranglethorn Vale jungle and Blasted Lands desert in the south with the snowy mountains of Dun Morogh in the north.
*** Northrend: The relatively hospitable Borean Tundra and Howling Fjord in the south, the bitterly cold Storm Peaks and Icecrown glacier in the north.
*** Pandaria: The Krasarang Wilds jungle in the south, the snow-covered Kun-Lai Summit in the north.

* In ''[[TabletopGame/{{Birthright}} Birthright's]]'' world of Aebrynis, the main (human-)inhabited continent is Cerilia, which is populated by several [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Fantasy Counterpart Cultures]]. In the north live the Rjurik (Norse) and the Vos (Russian/Mongol) while in the south live the Khinasi (Arabs). There are two continents south of Cerilia which are not described in detail: one is Aduria, which was the original human homeland but is now arid and sparsely inhabited, and the other is Djapar, home to the nomadic Basarji who are the ancestors of the Khinasi. Any lands further south than these are not mentioned or mapped out.



* ''TabletopGame/{{Numenera}}'': The region of Matheunis, known in-universw 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.
