** It was a major problem for the British at first, particularly leading to defeat in Burma and Malaya. But commanders like Bill Slim and Ian Stewart deliberately trained their men to regard the jungle as neutral, which led to success later in the war. Stewart's 2nd Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, who spent months on end training in the jungle before the war, were the only British unit in Malaya to consistently defeat the Japanese.

Spencer Chapman, Bill Slim and Ian Stewart deliberately trained their men to regard the jungle as neutral, which led to success later in the war. Stewart's 2nd Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, who spent months on end training in the jungle before the war, were the only British unit in Malaya to consistently defeat the Japanese. Chapman spent more than three years behind the lines working with the Chinese, and came to believe so firmly that 'the Jungle is Neutral', that he made it [[TitleDrop the title of his memoir]].

* Several of the maps in ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' fall under this. Truck sized herbivores will stomp you into a paste, smaller scavengers will gang up on you and rip you to pieces, huge ambush predators lurk in every sizable pond, and man-eating plants will devour you with one wrong step. And that's ignoring the gargantuan beast that's [[ItCanThink stalking you]] throughout the match, growing deadlier all the while.

* Lustria in ''Warhamme Fantasy''. Basically the worst jungles in South America taken to eleven. It doesn't help that there's a race of killer dinosaur-people who want to sacrifice you to a giant snake-god, either...
