* The Desert in ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter 1'' (old) and ''2'' (new). In ''3'', the Sandy Plains takes this role. During day, certain areas are so hot that the player will continually lose HP unless a Cold Drink is consumed. During night, those same areas will be instead very cold, and decrease the player's stamina unless a Hot Drink is consumed. And various large monsters happen to love lurking in them (especially if their names are Nibelsnarf, Sand Barioth or Diablos).

While ''4'' doesn't have any desert area except for the battlefield of Dah'ren Mohran, its expansion ''4 Ultimate'' brings back the desert of ''1'' as a NostalgiaLevel.

** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks Spirit Tracks]]'' has the Sand Realm, though it doesn't affect gameplay at all, seeing as you can only stop at the sanctuary and the temple (which does have plenty of desert-themed motifs, including an item to manipulate sand, the Sand Wand). ** The Lanayru region in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' has a desert, albeit one with {{Tomorrowland}} and EternalEngine elements.

* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'': Deserts come in three types -- badlands covered in dry soil, rocky wastelands and sandy deserts -- all of which have extremely low rainfall, making farming difficult and trees (and thus wood) very rare. Desert wildlife includes plenty of camels (which can provide a good source of meat) and the feared [[ScaryScorpions giant desert scorpions]], over three times the size of a dwarf and armed with a powerful toxin that will rot away their victims’ nervous tissue.
