** Australian troops also fought in the HungryJungle in WW2, on the Kododa Track and other parts of New Guinea, Borneo and Bougainville. They later took what they learned there and brought it to the Vietnam War, where they terrorised the Viet Cong.

* Most of the Maguuma Jungle in ''VideoGame/GuildWars2'' is not actually that bad; quite pleasant in fact, although there are a few places where you need to watch your step. On the other hand, the Heart of Maguuma to the west, the setting of the first expansion ''Heart of Thorns,'' is bordering on a DeathWorld- filled with packs of hungry saurians, hordes of vicious [[HordeOfAlienLocusts chak]], inhabited by several tribes of the froglike Hylek (some friendly, some xenophobic in the ''extreme'') and, worst of all, patrolled by the [[PlantMooks Mordrem]], particularly the deadly Mordrem Guard. This is the domain of Mordremoth, the jungle dragon. [[spoiler:Literally. [[GeniusLoci The jungle IS the dragon]]. And it is ''very'' hungry.]]

* The protagonist of Leo Frankowski's Cross Time Engineer novel, ''Conrad's Search for Rubber'', faces this when attempting to explore Africa. After the massive death incurred by both the explorers and the natives, Conrad vows to do no more exploration until he'd found a solution. [[spoiler:His relatives from the future then proceed to come down from the heavens and give him [[DeusExMachina a solution to his problems]].]]

** In general, this is a common tropical spin on Greenís forests, as a natural result of Greenís love of untamed wilds, its profusion of ravenous monsters and gigantic insects, and its hatred of technology and skill in breaking it down.

* Lustria in ''TabletopGame/WarhammerFantasy''. 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...

* Lustria in ''TabletopGame/WarhammerFantasy''. ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}''. Basically the worst jungles in South America taken to eleven. It doesn't help eleven, most of the continent is covered in trackless swampland and rainforests teeming with swarms of aggressive insects stinged and bloodsucking alike, enormous carnivorous plants, giant snakes and man-eating dinosaurs, all quite happy to kill you -- unless the plagues or the ever-present crushing heat do so before they can. The only reason anyone ever goes there is to search for wealth and magical artifacts in the golden cities deep in the jungle. Pity that there's a race of killer dinosaur-people living there who want take a decidedly dim view to sacrifice you to a giant snake-god, either...
people walking off with their sacred artifacts...

* ''TabletopGame/NewHorizon'' has the Narhhel jungle. It's mostly unexplored, filled with predators, and might have [[AncientRuins unknown]] [[{{Precursors}} technology]] embedded in them.
* In ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' most of Venus above the mists is covered in jungle, full of dinosaurs, giant insects and horrifying diseases.

* Dxun as portrayed Dxun, which appears in ''Franchise/{{Star Wars|Expanded Universe}}: VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic II: [[ColonCancer The Sith Lords]]''Lords]]'' and in related ''Star Wars'' material, is entirely covered in jungle and rainforest infested with a rich and varied assortment of vicious alien predators, and has a pervasive hot and humid climate that makes technology break down very quickly unless constantly maintained. It's not known as the [[IDontLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace Demon Moon]] for nothing.



* ''[[VideoGame/{{Shellshock 2}} Shellshock 2]]'' skirts this. It's about a zombie plague outbreak in the middle of UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar, so there are certainly a lot of nasty things lurking in the jungle, but it isn't really the jungle's fault. All the unpleasant stuff is ultimately of human origin, including the zombie plague.

* While not a jungle per-se ''Literature/TheBible'' features this during Absalom's rebellion. It is explicitly stated that the forest claimed more lives than the actual battle.

-->'''2 Samuel 18:8'''
-->8 For the battle there was spread out over the surface of the entire countryside, and the [hazards of the] forest devoured more men that day than did the sword.

* This is the reason why European colonization of Africa remained so limited for so long, even as the Americas and South Asia were successfully conquered. It was only with advances in pharmacology in the mid-19th century that Europeans, lacking natural immunity, had effective treatments for the diseases carried by mosquitoes and tsetse flies.
