* ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'': the desert is a biome composed of rolling hills of sand overlaying layers of sandstone, dotted with cacti (which will hurt you if you touch them) and completely lacking in natural water. Itís one of the worst biomes to spawn in, completely lacking highly valuable early-game resources such as wood or meat, except for extremely hard to catch rabbits. Even in the late game, the desertís only real draws are the possibility of trade at desert villages and the pyramid-like desert temples with hidden rooms full of valuable items, if you can get past the booby traps. The desert has a unique zombie variant that spawns only there, the withered, mummy-like Husk, which does not burn in the sunlight.

The video game desert is a vast, hot and dry place, usually with [[BuildLikeAnEgyptian Egyptian-style pyramids]]. It can be a big part of games set in a ScavengerWorld, or [[SortingAlgorithmOfThreateningGeography the second world on the itinerary]] after GreenHillZone. Thankfully, heat stroke and dehydration are usually not a problem.

* In ''BatenKaitos'': Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean, late in the game, one of the optional sidequests place the characters in a desert, where shifting to a new screen uses up one of your supplies of water. If you lose it all, you collapse and end up back at the entrance. Luckily, you are given several opportunities to stock up on water before entering and while in the desert through oasises; however, some of these oasises are mirages.

Provided you manage to enter the desert without having to accomplish some kind of [[ImpassableDesert quest]] beforehand, you'll likely have to deal with {{quicksand|Sucks}} and/or a [[DeadlyDustStorm sandstorm]]. Also common are [[SandIsWater rivers and whirlpools of sand flowing into]] BottomlessPits (when there isn't an AntlionMonster at the bottom). Camels may be found around here, usually to ride. [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Watch out, they spit!]] Flying carpets and dust devils are another common mode of travel. Be assured that you will be going to a TempleOfDoom at some point. The nongame variant is the ThirstyDesert.
