* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'':
** The otherwise benign kingdom of Bretonnia has the Dukedom of Mousillon, a swamp ruled by vampires and full of inbred criminals, mutants, Chaos-worshippers, necromancers and undead. It says a lot that even the AlwaysChaoticEvil Beastmen avoid this place.
** More generally, the Old World's swamps are almost invariably rotting, unwholesome places full of disease, hydras, trolls and similarly pleasant company. They are also home to the Fimir, a race of evil, one-eyed LizardFolk that worship Chaos.

** The otherwise benign kingdom of Bretonnia has the Dukedom of Mousillon, a swamp ruled by vampires and full of inbred criminals, mutants, Chaos-worshippers, necromancers and undead, and for added fun also full of a certain aquatic plant that grows in long, straight floating patches over the water that mimic footpaths quite convincingly... until someone actually steps on them, the plants given way and the hapless traveler is sent plunging into the mire. It says a lot that even the AlwaysChaoticEvil Beastmen avoid this place.

* In an episode of ''Series/Logan'sRun'', evil aliens dump Logan and Jessica along with an old man into a spooky, misty swamp (here called a "fen") invested with snakes, lizards and bloodthirsty mutants. Logan however manages to find a way out for himself and his friends just in time to thwart the bad guys.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Armello}}'', it's not just the -1 health a character takes when entering a swamp square that makes swamps this. It's the fact that a number of nasty perils, including the [[TheCorruption rot]]-inducing Plague Bearers and the Plague itself, are found here.

* The CreepyPasta ''Bog of Whispers'' is about a guy and his buddy out on a fishing trip who get lured out into the titular bog, which has become not only sapient but completely batshit nutso because of the horror of everything thats died there. And it loves to share visions: people eaten by the trees, a child at the bottom of a pool, a deer sinking in a quicksand, and millions more.

* Blighttown in ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' is the [[DemonsSouls Valley of Defilement]] reborn. The game throws you a bone at least in the form of artifacts like the Rusted Iron Ring and the Poisonbite Ring that makes trudging through the swamp much easier. ''If'' you know where to find them.

* The Muddletop Moors in ''Literature/{{Spellinger}}'' is similar to The Swamp of Sadness from ''Literature/TheNeverEndingStory''. The entire place is filled with sentient mushrooms which, being immobile, are [[AndIMustScream bored to the point of suicidal depression]]. The aura of depression and boredom is so strong that anyone who enters just stops and lies around immobile until they starve to death... nourishing the mushrooms, naturally. The ''only'' thing that saves Jon-Tom's party is [[spoiler:his offworlder's knowledge of basic psychoanalysis.]]
