* This is part of earth pony magic in FanFic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse. In addition to flowing through their bodies to grant SuperStrength and enhanced durability and endurance, earth pony magic also leaks out their hooves to infuse the ground with fertility. It's most prominent for those earth ponies who are actually farmers, but every earth pony in a town contributes to the fertility of its farms through their magic. It's this effect that allows Equestrian agriculture to be so insanely productive for the general tech level.

* A variant in Zyra, the Rise of the Thorns from ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends-'' while she doesn't generate plant matter under her feet as she walks, her new passive "Garden of Thorns" causes her to spontaneously spawn seed pods randomly around her every few seconds, which she can cause to bloom into aggressive thorn spitters or vine lashers with her offensive spells.

* Van Kleiss in ''GeneratorRex'' can do this, and he's the ''BigBad''! However, it only works in the area around his castle, which is infused with nanites that he controls. He may arguably have been invoking the trope at the time to get Rex to let his guard down.

* Horribly {{invoked}} in ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'', when Ganishka takes on his final form, a tree-man the size of a mountain. He's clueless about his new form, and takes a few steps, noticing that wherever he goes, red flowers bloom in his footsteps (he's stomping on his own soldiers).

** A related thing happens to junior witch Magrat Garlick in ''Literature/WyrdSisters''. [[note]]Magrat is youngest witch, the Maiden of the trio, a role associated with Spring and fertility[[/note]]. Faced with the conundrum of a locked and unopenable heavy oak door, she lays a hand on it, concentrates, and restores life-force to the wood causing it to "remember when it was a tree" and to grow, put forth leaves, and bear fruit with acorns. Thus causing the wood to cease being a door and burst its hinges. [[note]]Granny Weatherwax, the "crone" of the triad, a role associated with Death and Winter, frankly admits she'd have gone about it differently by attacking the stone of the surrounding wall.[[/note]]

* There is at least one legend that garlic derives its anti-Vampire properties from that fact that it first sprouted in Satan's footsteps. This is not in Literature/TheBible.
** Traditionally, vampires were corpses possessed by demons; it reminds them if their host is destroyed, they will return to Hell.
* Also, in Arthurian/ Grail legends, [[FisherKing the sickness of the king poisons the land]], and when the king is healed the flowers grow again. The movie ''Excalibur'' is a particularly vivid portrayal of this legend.
