The battle takes place in the vast desert. Although there are rocky mountains and obstacles, such as ringed structures very similar to some seen in Ico, they hardly get in the way as you ride Agro and chase the colossus.
- The ringed structures (nicknamed by fans as Ico Rings) are the exact same model used in Ico.
- Before Barba was created, the unused colossus Roc lived next to the Desert. It was once possible to see the tower that it rested on when fighting against Phalanx.
- The unused theme named "Wilderness" was likely to have been created with this arena in mind, as the track name in the files is "Desert". However, no cutscene for this arena ended up being properly made.
- In the E3 Demo, there is a placeholder cutscene for this arena that can only be accessed with the debug menu. It has no camera panning and no music.
