When not a run of JungleJapes, the jungle is a harsh and hostile place, [[EverythingTryingToKillYou frequently deadly for its denizens, but even more ferocious to outsiders no matter what gear they bring with them]]. This jungle is treated as a semi-sentient entity; a soup of [[GeniusLoci consciousness]] composed of the ferocity of its native life and climate. And it ''[[{{Sinistar}} hungers]]''. It devours sane minds with its stifling and claustrophobic atmosphere, infecting all who enter with a slow, creeping madness in an effort to make them its own. This same climate breeds fetid decay and disease, which likewise infests the body. On top of this, the marvels of modern technology count for ''nothing''. The humidity of the jungle devours advanced technology in a trice. Keeping anything working is a constant, day-to-day struggle to keep up with the jungle's ruination, which further wears at the sanity and morale of any who try it.

* The Literature/InheritanceCycle has the Spine. While not a jungle, it's a range of mountains that the BigBad apparently lost a third of his army in once.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Numenera}}'': The Caecilian Jungle is a large, star-shaped patch of rainforest at the northern end of the Beyond and home to a great variety of predatory beasts. Its depths are home to ruins and wonders -- such as a frog-shaped temple that draws amphibians to itself, a miniature city and a garden of carnivorous plants -- that draw a steady stream of explorers and expeditions, despite the fact there no one who ever went in has been know to come back out again.
