* VideoGame/{{Amorphous}} has Clutters, which bombard you with their spawn that latches onto you, slowing you as more become attached. If you let enough of the baby Clutters latch onto you they stun you for a while, leaving you completely open to all attacks.

* In the episode, "''[[WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom Fanning the Flames]]''", we have Klemper, a hulking, bucktoothed, blond haired ghost who wants to be friends with everyone. In fact, in the first second, we see Klemper invading Danny's personal space in the most hilarious way possible.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Monster Hunter}}'' series has the Giggi in the third game and Squagill in the fourth, both of which will attempt to latch onto hunters and slowly leech their health away. They'll eventually get full and let go of their own accord if not dislodged by rolling, after which they'll continue to harass you by attacking you normally.

** Though certain oozes and a few other similar creatures take it even farther and engulf their victims entirely. Possibly one of the worst offenders is the Flesh Jelly. Why? Well as an ooze made of putrid flesh, being engulfed by it doesn't result in an acid bath as with most oozes, which can be magically avoided. Instead you either take damage from the convulsions of the mushy remains of previous victims and are exposed to disease, or are instantly converted into mush yourself, which so thoroughly destroys your remains that only the most potent magics in the game can bring you back.

* Almost ubiquitous in the ''VideoGame/SilentHill'' series, with each game possessing at least one variant. Perhaps the worst, both in terms of gameplay and sheer mindfuckery, are either the Doorman/Abstract Daddy monsters in the second game, which are massive and proceed to swallow the player character's head, or the Slurpers in the third game that knock the (teenaged, female) player character to the ground and climb on top of her in preparation for "fun time".

* Pictured above is the Mega Chopper from ''[[SonicTheHedgehog Sonic 3 & Knuckles]]''. In Hydrocity Zone, these little red piranha-like MechaMooks swim around in certain underwater sections, and can even jump ''out'' of the water at you. If they make contact with your character, they latch on and start chewing, eating away one ring per second. \\
\\
Now, almost every other harmful thing in the game either takes away all your rings or instantly kills you; by comparison, the Mega Chopper seems rather non-threatening. What truly makes this enemy dangerous is the fact that, while it's biting away, [[DemonicSpiders your character is unable to jump, duck, or roll]]. If you're underwater at the time, you're not going to be able to get back to the surface before drowning. If you get hit by an enemy while you're being Mega Chopped, you'll die one second later due to running out of rings. \\

* In ''SuperSmashBrosBrawl'''s Subspace Emissary mode, the Bucculus likes to hide under ground, then leap out at careless players and latch on tight. They make a loud smooching sound as the sac attached to their lips fills up and you take damage, then, once you finally pry them off, they bounce around before hiding back under ground to start the process all over again.

* ''[[{{VideoGame/Banjo-Kazooie}} Banjo-Tooie]]'' had these sort of sentient toxic fume clouds that would cling on to you and rapidly start depleting your air meter. They spawned after you killed another enemy, a sentient toxic waste barrel. Yeah, all the enemies in the game are more or less like that.

* In ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'', this is one of the main methods of attacking that infantry and [[PoweredArmor Battle Armor]] have. Unlike other units in the game, they're capable of making attacks with their weapons while they're in the same space as their target, which means that at range 0 they can freely attack a mech or tank without it being able to shoot back. Most types of infantry and Battle Armor also have the ability to make special attacks against a mech's legs [[ArmorPiercingAttack for reduced damage but an extra chance of crippling it]], or to make a [[DeathOrGloryAttack risky but potentially powerful]] Swarm attack where they climb onto a mech or vehicle and focus their weapons onto a specific location ForMassiveDamage.
