The Dream Desert is a common manifestation of Scott Pilgrim's Mind Subspace. It appears during Scott's dreams and death. Scott sees Ramona skating (an impossibility on sand) toward him while saying, "Alone. So Alone..." Ramona tells him he is having an idiotic dream, to which he replies, "Does that mean we can make out?" Ramona was most likely using Scott's mind to deliver packages to people around Toronto, his brain having a Subspace Highway. After Scott dies, he is alone in the Dream Desert until Ramona comes up behind him and tells him the history of how she and Gideon got together. She also shows him Gideon's microchip that he used to control her.
- The Dream Desert is a metaphor for Scott Pilgrim's loneliness.
