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.

* 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.

* Averted in ''{{Franchise/Mistborn}}'' where the Last Empire is generally temperate (despite some inhospitable elements) but it's later revealed that [[spoiler: the Last Empire is actually near the north pole and had been moved there when the Lord Ruler screwed up the climate of the planet by moving the planet's orbit closer.]]
