* ''VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine'' reminds us that Dubai, despite being a paradise of opulence, is set in a desert. A massive sandstorm causes the total collapse of infrastructure, water distribution more than anything, and it only goes FromBadToWorse from there.

* ''ComicBook/DungeonTwilight'': The Always Day area is a desert where, as the name suggest, it's always day. The [[BigBad Great Khan]] punishes failure by dropping disgraced soldiers there to die of exhaustion and they are crippled beforehand .

* The Dayside of the planet Taldain in ''ComicBook/WhiteSand'' is a single continent, most of which is a giant desert. When Khriss and her company attempt to cross it, their guide bails on them with most of their water, leaving them stranded and with little to drink until they find a native, Kenton, who reveals to them that water is actually easy to come by on Dayside - splashing even a little bit of it on the sand brings out water vines, which store a lot of the precious liquid.

Analogously, this trope is to ShiftingSandLand as HungryJungle is to JungleJapes or LovecraftCountry is to HollywoodNewEngland - a nastier, more serious portrayal of the same region.

* Very much a part of ''QuestForGloryII'', where the player will literally die of thirst if you don't have enough water, and multiple foes ranging from [[{{Outlaw}} vicious brigands]] to [[ScaryScorpions giant scorpions]] to [[TyrannosaurusRex rampaging mini T. rexes]] to [[DemBones ghouls]] will try to kill you.

* Attempts to employ this trope in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' are difficult, since the healing-oriented classes tend to get a ''create water'' spell at 1st level and employ it whenever there seems to be a hazard of thirst.
