* 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.

** Scandinavian folklore in general is also rife with this rope; nature is inhabited by FairFolk and {{Eldritch Abomination}}s that ''can'' and ''will'' hurt or kill you if you're not careful and don't treat them with the respect they deserve.
