* Parodied in ''CowAndChicken'' where Cow gets lost in an overgrown jungle and spends the whole episode struggling to survive. The kicker? She's just been in the family's backyard the whole time, and is brought in by Dad right after she's decided to eat a squirrel.

The truth is, nature isn't cruel; it [[AboveGoodAndEvil just doesn't care about you]]. The forest is a big scary place in which you can get lost, or killed by disease or wild and ferocious animals. The desert has only about a hundred ways for you to be injured or die. The jungle is even worse. Even a lake or a river is a dangerous place for a person who isn't prepared.

* For all of its [[SceneryPorn peerless beauty]], Nature is presented more of some kind hostile wasteland than a land of wonder in ''Film/TheRevenant''. From vicious animals, the rampaging Native American tribes, deceitful and murderous Frenchmen to blisteringly cold and harsh environments, the North American Frontier is unflinchingly cruel to protagonist Hugh Glass and many other of its characters. As one of the [[WebAnimation/{{Spill}} Double Toasted]] guys put it, "even the grass looks miserable!".

Admittedly a lot of it is because of man's cruelties towards man, but even if we ignore these parts the rest more than cover up for the savagery inherent in the wilderness.

** Peryite, the Daedric Prince of [[{{Plaguemaster}} Pestilence]] and Tasks, also has elements of this. He is associated with the "Natural Order" (compared to Jyggalag's "[[ControlFreak Perfect Order]]" which is inorganic stasis), which, unfortunately for mortals, primarily manifests as outbreaks of disease, and death in wake of those outbreaks.

** The [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] Namira also has elements of this, as the "darker" aspects of nature fall within her sphere. These include decay and disease.

Added DiffLines:

* This is the primary challenge of ''VideoGame/DontStarve'', being a survival game. Sickness and dehydration aren't incorporated into gameplay and the crafting system is fairly generous, but the player character has to feed themself and avoid freezing to death, burning to death in a forest fire, electrocution from a lightning strike, or being killed by any number of wild animals that are either hostile to players who get too close or unwilling to roll over and die when a player attacks them. However, [[EverythingTryingToKillYou there are also a number of monsters specifically out to get the player character]], such as the packs of ferocious wild dogs that appear out of nowhere periodically, the entity who attacks you if and only if [[DarknessEqualsDeath you're caught in complete darkness]], and the shadow creatures who attack when your SanityMeter gets too low. The expansion packs add even more ways to die, such as poison, heatstroke, a giant bear who wants to eat your food stockpile, and falling rocks.

* Quite prominent in ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines''. Wild Pokémon can be very aggressive and territorial, and the wilderness is shown to be a potentially very dangerous place. There's a reason the Viridian Forest has so many signs giving advice on how to avoid a CruelAndUnusualDeath.



* As a general rule, in Myth/NorseMythology natural phenomena are personified as giants (Jotnar). Fire, ice, and time are examples of this. Meanwhile, the gods usually represent man-made concepts like war, sailing, wisdom, and song. Norse mythology can thus be seen as a representation of a war between man and nature. [[GotterDammerung And in the end they will end up destroying each other.]]

* Frequently played for laughs in ''Webcomic/SandraAndWoo'', mainly centered around the realities of carnivorism. Woo and Shadow have soemtimes threatened to eat Sid the squirrel, even though they're normally friends, and Shadow had even shared a chunk of his childhood with Sid. Or an Eagle captures Woo to eat him, only to watch Woo eat its eggs. Or most recently, the carnivore animals claim to have been inspired by ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' to act nice to the herbivores, but it turns out to be a trick to attack and eat the herbivores now that their defenses are down.

** This is present throughout the series with Spriggans, a hostile [[WhenTreesAttack tree-like]] PlantPeople race. Though they are revered as "[[GaiasVengeance Nature's Guardians]]'' and are associated with Kynareth (one of the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Nine Divines]] and goddess of the heavens, wind, and elements), they're generally an unfriendly group of nature spirits who attack anyone who intrudes on their domains. (Usually by [[TheBeastmaster commanding animals]] including [[BearsAreBadNews bears]] and [[BeeAfraid bees]].)

* The Spriggans from ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' are aggressive nature spirits that attack anyone who disturbs their groves. Another example from the same series is the Daedric Prince Namira, who represents the darker aspects of nature.
