* ''[[VideoGame/{{DungeonSiege}} Dungeon Siege]]'' has some interesting examples:
** The Kingdom of Ehb map has a temperate south, and a north of extremes. The northwest is snowy and frigid, while the northeast is sandy and arid.
** The Utraean Peninsula mostly plays the trope straight, except for one particular instance: the most important snowy area is in the south, and is positioned ''just north of the Endless Desert''. One cannot directly access the two regions from one another, however.

In reality, it doesn't quite works 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 that trope seems true.

* Averted in the ''[[Literature/{{Chalion}} The Curse of Chalion]]'' and its sequels; the titular medieval-Iberia analogue is somewhere in the southern hemisphere; the [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Roknari]], whose role in history parallels the Arabs, come from a desert archipelago to the north.

* Played straight in ''TabletopGame/AnimaBeyondFantasy'', where the northern part of Gaïa is tundra or worse and the southern one jungles and the like. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that magic was used to divide the planet in three regions, each one of them even if the world itself was not physically divided appearing as an independent planet for their inhabitants.

** It's implied that there's more to the world then is visible or mentioned. The fact only a hot, northern coast of a southern continent is known implies there's a whole southern hemisphere that's not within the scope of the books.

* Averted with ''TabletopGame/{{Numenera}}''. The region of Matheunis, known inworld 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.

** Although the GrimUpNorth with all the [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame Dwarves]] in it is... roughly equatorial. Sure, equatorial mountains are cold, but that doesn't change the fact that the middle of the world consists of frigid valleys, frigider peaks, and the Scottish -- err, Twilight Highlands. (Well, and [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Searing Gorge]].)
