* ''Berenstain Bears Camping Adventure'' has pretty much every single thing in the forest out to get the player characters. Snakes, alligators, but even ''woodpeckers'', ''turtles'', skunks, ''beavers'', ''snails'', ''ants'' and ''mushrooms''.

Snakes, alligators, Snakes and alligators are dangerous themselves, but even then the game throws ''woodpeckers'', ''turtles'', skunks, ''beavers'', ''snails'', ''ants'' and ''mushrooms''.

** That's probably why his exploits made the front page of the newspaper every day. In fact, [[EpilepticTrees one theory that's been floated]] is that the eponymous delivery person is, in fact, ''dead'', and the delivery route is his [[EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory personal purgatory]]. Only by delivering the paper and surviving every day for a week is he able to escape.

* ''VideoGame/FeedingFrenzy'' 's high seas are ''filled'' with creatures that are out to have you as their dinner. Tunas, swordfishes, sharks, dories, pufferfishes, ''oysters''... As long as it is bigger than you, it '''will''' eat you. Add mines, mutant fishes and pelicans to the mix and the entire ocean becomes one giant deathtrap.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', not referring to the various monsters, but rather the trainers who use them. While you're walking along, expect to be interrupted and thrust into battle with Engineers, Guitarists, Teachers, Burglars (who aren't trying to mug you), Scientists, Poké Maniacs (read: cosplayers), Schoolboys, Gentlemen, Fishermen, Swimmers, Sailors, Jugglers, Dancers, Preschoolers... in fact, when Generation 4 introduced babies as [=NPCs=], more than one player approached the strollers with caution, expecting a battle to begin. It hasn't happened... yet.

** The Trainers aren't trying to harm you or your Pokémon aside from making them faint (aside from a few [[BigBad evil team leaders]] that WouldHurtAChild), but most wild Pokémon try to maul anyone coming through their territory. When the player attempts to walk through tall grass without Pokémon of their own in the first games Professor Oak stops them as if they're a child about to stick a fork in a light socket, and whenever the player's party gets wiped by a wild Pokémon they drop money in a panic and run for their life to the nearest Pokémon Center.

* In ''DustForce'', the dirt has turned many things against janitors like residents of the area, books, trash cans, wildlife and other things.

While a common trope in the NintendoHard generation of games, this has more to do with old-style games than difficulty. Many older games were {{platform game}}s, where the objective is primarily to get from the beginning of the level to the end. Memory was at a premium, so pretty much anything added to the game needed a purpose. And in a platformer, most things should be either {{power up}}s or obstacles, things that make it a challenge (and thus fun) to get from Point A to Point B. AdventureGame designers, especially those at {{Sierra}}, also delighted in finding [[TheManyDeathsOfYou new and interesting ways to kill the player character]]; with no quantified attributes, such a game's hero could only survive or not survive.

* ''Manga/InnocentsShounenJuujigun'': Hugo tries to make sure of this. From sending bandits after the kids, to getting the village they were staying in burned down, to turning ''the entire Catholic Church against them'', Hugo doesn't give the kids a shadow of a chance at recovery.

* ''Creator/HarryHarrison'''s ''Literature/Deathworld'' has an entire planet of plants and animals that are literally trying to kill (and in some cases, then eat) the people who colonized that planet. The reason for this constant level of attack is that [[spoiler:all of the plants and animals are psychic, and reacted poorly when the original colonists started clear-cutting a space for their city. The plants and animals fought back, the colonists started killing them off in self-defense, and it escalated from there]].
