Moody mounts aren't the only risk of intentional attack. An enemy can lie in wait and pull a flexible branch back out of your path, compelling you to proceed, only to release it to whip you just as soon as you get in range.

A subtrope of AmusingInjuries when it's PlayedForLaughs. Similar in principle to NotTheFallThatKillsYou, which usually isn't. Compare LowClearance.

** In ''Discworld/MovingPictures'', when the Librarian -- an orangutan for those unfamiliar with the series -- tries to do a Tarzan moment to stop an EldritchAbomination that was in the form of a [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever giant woman]], he misses it and smashes into the Tower of Art. This then leads to a ''Film/KingKong'' spoof with an ape being held hostage by a giant woman. Only Pratchett could do that many spoofs in that little time.
* In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets'', the title character and his best friend Ron Weasley drive a flying car headlong into a tree on the grounds of Hogwarts. Of course, "Watch out for that tree!" becomes even more urgent when they find that [[WhenTreesAttack the tree hits back]]. Harry actually says the trope name in the U.S. version of the book. In the original version and [[Film/HarryPotter the movie]], it's "Mind that tree!"
