The Swamps of Sadness is a location in Fantastica in Michael Ende's novel The Neverending Story.
It is a barren swampland with quicksand-like mud pools. Anyone who becomes depressed while in the swampland sinks into the mud and drowns. When Atreyu and his horse Artax tread through the swamps, Artax becomes overcome by depression and drowns.
