The Sunken Desert is a location in Chrono Trigger that appears in 600 AD. This location is important to The Sunken Desert sidequest.


After convincing the Zeal Plant Woman to disobey the orders of Queen Zeal to plant the seed given to her by Gaspar, this location appears south of Fiona's Villa near Dorino. Speaking to Fiona, it is learned that Marco has returned for good and she is preparing to revive the desert surrounding her villa with tree saplings. However, she fears creatures crawling out of the Sunken Desert would destroy the newly planted vegetation before it had a chance to restore the blighted land. So, Crono and his friends approach the sinkhole, understanding it is the source of the monsters that would destroy Fiona's plants, and wind up in a cavern beneath. Navigating through the quicksand halls, they meet and defeat Melphyx. After which, Robo enlists his aid and together, he and Fiona are able to plant trees without interruption. Fiona's Forest appears in 1000 AD after Melphyx is defeated and the sinkhole, closed.
