** Carried over to ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryIII'', which takes place in a Thirsty Savannah (and later a Thirsty Jungle), where the danger isn't dehydration from extreme heat, but from extreme ''humidity'' (which is just as lethal).

* 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.
