* 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.
