* This is in full force in ''{{Literature/Moonflowers}}'', where it's revealed that TheWildHunt's leader--aptly called the Hunter--isn't just an extremely powerful member of TheFairFolk, but the Horned Hunter of CelticMythology. Which makes him ''[[AnthropomorphicPersonification the embodiment of predators]]''. The Irish gods are at their wit's end trying to help the protagonist Alima break the curse he put on her family, since [[GodsHandsAreTied even they can't interfere too much with nature itself.]]

* 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 presented as 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!".

* ''Anime/PrincessMononoke'' skillfully combines this with HumansAreBastards. The human characters want to assassinate the local forest god so that the wilderness will become easier to conquer, but [[GreyAndGrayMorality the local nature spirits are no angels, either,]] and are demonstrably willing to maim and kill anyone in their way.

* The film ''Film/{{Honey I Shrunk the Kids}}'', a scorpion nearly consumes the children who take refuge inside a Lego brick.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/{{Micro}}'': this trope is driven home in many ways including a former scientist getting torn apart by ants.

* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles'' centers around the battle between two gods: the Bionis, representing nature and organic beings, and Mechonis, representing technology. It starts out like most RPG plots, where the heroes are defending the world of the good nature god from the evil technology god. [[spoiler: But then it's flipped entirely on its head. Mayneth, the technology god, was GoodAllAlong and was out to save the world from the Bionis, or rather Zanza, who turns out to be the true BigBad of the game. Far from a benevolent deity, Zanza is a complete [[TheSociopath sociopath]] who sees all the living beings he created as nothing more than a food source, regularly commiting genocide with his own personal army of monsters ([[KickTheDog horrifically transformed from a race he created solely to become them]]) whenever life becomes capable of space travel so they don't leave him and deprive him of energy. While Mayneth [[GodIsGood genuinely loves her subjects]], Zanza [[ItsAllAboutMe cares for no-one but himself]] and is only concerned with preserving his power.]]

* ''KidIcarusUprising'': [[GaiasVengance Viridi, Goddess of Nature]], though unlike most examples where nature/its personifications are apathetic about humanity, Viridi despises humans and is [[SoapboxSadie extremely vocal]] about her beliefs that HumansAreTheRealMonsters. To that end, she aspires to KillEmAll using [[FantasticNuke Reset Bombs]] designed to both wipe out humanity and restore the local natural order by creating massive forests.

* As a general rule, in 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, where nature is decidedly evil.
