If you cut down too many trees in ''VideoGame/DontStarve'', evergreen trees, there's a chance that a nearby tree will become a ferocious Treeguard Treeguard, monster shaped like a [[{{Treants}} humanoid tree]] that will spawn.then try to kill you. Fortunately, planting new trees may cause a Treeguard to stop attacking you. Similarly, the ''Shipwrecked'' DLC includes Palm Treeguards, which spawn when you cut down palm trees and will try to kill you until you pacify them by planting coconuts to make more palm trees.
** There's a similar mechanic with the Birchnut Trees. When you cut them down, there's a chance a nearby birchnut will "awaken" and become a Poison Birchnut Tree, an otherwise normal deciduous tree with purple leaves, a giant maw in their canopy, and a single eye perched on thin branches at their top. Unlike Treeguards, Poison Birchnuts are immobile, and attack [[MookMaker by sending out waves of Birchnutters]] (small, mobile and aggressive nut-like creatures) and [[CombatTentacles by attacking through the ground with their flexible roots]]. Like Treeguards, you can placate by planting Birchnuts to make new saplings, or by waiting a day or so until they calm down and turn back into normal Birchnut Trees.

** The Treefolk, Dryad and Plant creature types, while not inherently hostile or homicidal in the game's lore, are most often represented this way due to the game's focus on battling. One specific treefolk, [[http://magiccards.info/query?q=crabapple&v=card&s=cname Crabapple Cohort]], has flavor text detailing it exacting its revenge upon people who picked its apples. Some elementals also end up in this area.

Compare PlantAliens and ManEatingPlant. If you see lots of these as PlantMooks, it might indicate that you are in {{Mordor}} or a GardenOfEvil or on a DeathWorld. If your trees are attacking you, it may be a sign that they're {{epileptic|Trees}}. Or not...

** And of course there's Another enemy, the Wolf-In-Sheep's-Clothing, which only ''looks'' like a tree stump...stump with a rabbit sitting on it... but if you get too close to it, it will grab you and try to eat you.



** The recent release "Heroes of the Feywild" feature the Hamadryad as a player-character race. They're basically standard Dryads that are (for one reason or another) no longer bound to a specific tree, but still have the "plant person" look. An earlier book also released the "Wildkin", although that's more along the lines of "when shrub-elves attack".

** Ironthorns are trees about the size of an apple tree, with leafless branches resembling nothing so much as a tangle of vines or tentacles covered with poisonous thorns. When a passing creature gets too close, the ironthorn snatches it with its branches and impales it on its thorns to feed off of the body.

** The basic treants can be summoned from trees by the Keeper of the Grove hero. Neutral treants come in several varieties (all mobile, one poisonous, and one doubly prehensile as it can cause roots to erupt from the ground to immobilize and damage an enemy), all of them evil.

* Likely the most powerful example of this trope, in Sean William's series The Books of the Cataclysm, the BigBad is Yod, a tree-like god or EldritchAbomination that inspired the myth of Yggdrasil the World Tree. Yod has almost completely consumed the universe and it is only in one single time-stream that Yod hasn't totally devoured the cosmos.
