* MadeASlaveMadeASlave: The Witch of the West does this to Dorothy since she can't harm her due to the protection spell the Witch of the North placed upon her. She also attempts to do this with the Cowardly Lion, but he threatens to attack her if she comes near, so she tries to starve him into submission. It doesn't work because Dorothy sneaks him food in the middle of the night.

* GiantSpider: Or something like it:
--> "We are all threatened," answered the tiger, "by a fierce enemy which has lately come into this forest. It is a most tremendous monster, like a great spider, with a body as big as an elephant and legs as long as a tree trunk. It has eight of these long legs, and as the monster crawls through the forest he seizes an animal with a leg and drags it to his mouth, where he eats it as a spider does a fly. Not one of us is safe while this fierce creature is alive, and we had called a meeting to decide how to take care of ourselves when you came among us."

[[spoiler:In order to cope with the residual stress from Dorothy being carried away, Uncle Henry decides to take a vacation. Dorothy joins him, but ends up in Oz a second time thanks to a shipwreck. Then later it turns out that the destruction of their house and farm via that tornado took a toll on Henry and Em's wallet, leaving them unable to afford to live anywhere, leading Dorothy to bring them to Oz so they'd never need to worry about money again.]]
