* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' works on the same system as Civilization IV, expect it is randomly chosen. With full maps though, there will be two cold poles and a hot equator.

* When creating smaller maps by ProceduralGeneration, ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' works on will pick at random between north or south being the same system as Civilization IV, expect it is randomly chosen. With full colder direction. Larger maps though, there will be have two cold poles polar regions and a hot equator.

* UrExample is probably 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.

* Seemingly averted by ''VideoGame/PillarsOfEternity''. The wiki mentions ''VideoGame/PillarsOfEternity'' is stated to be set in the Eastern Reach, a temperate region of Eora's southern hemisphere. Your boreal dwarf teammate Sagani is from the far southern island of Naasitaq, home to Naasitaq in the [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame boreal dwarves]], to be covered in tundra icy Deadfire Archipelago, and snowy conifer forests.you can choose a region even further south called the White that Wends (basically Space Antarctica) as region of origin for custom characters. So far there's no mention of a corresponding ice cap on the north pole.

* The land of [[http://mountandblade.wikia.com/wiki/Calradia Calradia]] in ''VideoGame/MountAndBlade'' is quite distinctly this, specifically in ''Warband.'' The map is freely rotated and is oriented with the Slavic Vaegirs in the north and the Persian-like Sarranids in the south, in tundra and desert environments respectively. However, this is only part of the world; the expanses of open space the map edges suggest that the tundra and desert go on for effectively forever.

[[folder:Real Life]] * Conditions on the other worlds of the [[UsefulNotes/TheSolarSystem]] result in some interesting situations: ** Both Uranus and Pluto have unusually large axial tilts (98 and 120 degrees, respectively), so the trope is averted when the planet's north pole is pointed toward from the Sun, and played straight when it's pointed away from it. ** The atmosphere of Venus is thick enough to efficiently distribute heat across the entire planet.
