* This is the reason Green magic in ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' isn't a "good" color. There are many cards that reflect the life-giving and nurturing facet of Mother Nature. There are also many cards that reflect Mother Nature's brutality.

* In the Literature/BookOfJob, God Himself [[JustifiedTrope justifies this trope]] when the Voice from the Whirlwind speaks to Job, as an example of the inherent injustice of the universe. Descriptions of [[CirclingVultures vultures hunting out the corpses of the slain]] to feed their chicks, and [[ArtisticLicenseBiology ostriches]] [[ParentalNeglect abandoning their young in the dirt to be crushed or trampled]] abound.

--> One of the remarkable aspects of the Job poet’s vision of nature is that it so completely unsentimental. The creatures of the wild (with the exception of the peculiar ostrich) are endowed with an instinct to nurture their young. For carnivores, however, that nurture involves violence—destroying living creatures in order to sustain life in the offspring. The concluding image, then, of God’s first speech is of the fledgling eagles in the nest, their little beaks open to gulp down the bloody scraps of flesh that their parent has brought them. The moral calculus of nature clearly does not jibe with the simple set of equations and consequences laid out in Proverbs and in Psalms.

* The book and film ''Film/IntoTheWild'', which chronicles the experiences of Christopher [=McCandless=], a young and [[WideEyedIdealist idealistic]] college graduate who abandons everything for attempting to live off the Alaskan wilderness. Christopher slowly realizes this trope's truth as his supplies dwindle and it becomes evident that he was very poorly prepared for his adventure, ending up starving to death.
* ''Film/{{Blackfish}}'' seems to make a point to contrast the sugary family-friendly [=SeaWorld=] TV commercials with orcas performing tricks and being petted by trainers to the terrifying footage of orcas attacking the trainers and sometimes each other. Although the film also presents the whale's natural environment as being a relatively harmonious one.

** But this wouldn't be the last time that [=SpongeBob=] misjudges or underestimates jellyfish. In "Nature Pants", [=SpongeBob=] decides to give up his job, home, and friends just to live free as a wild man alongside the jellyfish in their natural habitat. But he only ends up getting attacked by the jellyfish (and sea-urchins), and is forced to take shelter in a cold, dark cave where he realizes his mistakes.
