* Real-life example: Adventureland at the Ride/DisneyThemeParks, especially the Jungle Cruise, Tarzan's Treehouse (aka the Swiss Family Treehouse), and the Enchanted Tiki Room. Also includes PiratesOfTheCaribbean, which evokes GangplankGalleon. In ''VideoGame/EpicMickey'', [[{{Expy}} "Ventureland"]] likewise has an area aptly named the Jungle.

* The world of Website/GaiaOnline features the Otami Ruins, where the player must go to [[spoiler:gain the ability to breathe water, allowing them to access the whirlpool leading to the final dungeon]]. In a twist, the main danger of this area doesn't come from the wildlife (which is merely decoration), nor even the natives, but [[EverythingTryingToKillYou the artifacts that are coming to life and attacking everyone]]. Even the enemies that look human turn out to be just animated fetishes.

Enemies in Jungle Japes often include snakes (often very big ones), monkeys and apes, colorful birds, insects and spiders, the aforementioned crocodiles and piranha, restless and savage natives, and the occasional lion, tiger or other big cat. Most of them are, you guessed it, [[EverythingTryingToKillYou trying to kill you]].
