Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'':
** Rose Quartz is associated with, fittingly, pink roses. Her symbol is a stylized rose, which is present on her shield (and in a whole bunch of her things), which also has a rose-thorn pattern.Roses symbolize love, which fit the deep feelings she had for her friends, her lover and her son. Additionally, pink roses usually symbolize admiration, which her friends have nothing but for her. Since Steven inherited her powers, he, too, is very often associated with roses.
** In the episode ''Steven's Dream'', [[spoiler: Pink Diamond's palanquin/grave]] is overgrown with Roses of Sharon/Mugungwah. This is the national flower of (South) Korea (the episode is explicitly said to take place in Korea, but which one, or if there even is a difference in the shows universe is never mentioned).

* Gambit and Rogue of the ComicBook/XMen sometimes make use of flower symbolism. When they are reunited [[spoiler: after Gambit's sojourn in Antarctica]] Gambit presents Rogue with a white rose, claiming it represents "new beginnings." Rogue is contemptuous though, pointing out that "white lilies mean death. Does that go for roses too?" In actual fact, Gambit is probably correct - white roses traditionally mean innocence/purity.

* In ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'', Klara's plant-control powers are strongest with red roses. In floriography, red roses are associated with either romantic love or Christianity, and the two main things Klara is known for are her [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship very close friendship]] with Molly and her strict religious upbringing.



* In ''FanFic/{{Cinderjuice}}'', [[WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}} Lydia]] gets a corsage from Beetlejuice. It includes deadly nightshade (which fits her love of dark and spooky things) and calla lilies (which symbolize "magnificence" and "beauty," have a long association with funerals and death, and more recently [[spoiler: are sometimes used in [[{{Foreshadowing}} wedding bouquets]])]].

* In ''Fanfic/CellarSecrets'', we get marigolds, which usually represents grief and despair over lost love, likewise, it's also associated with cruel treatment towards a loved one. Besides initially wanting to name [[spoiler: Ryuuko]] "Marigold", it was also mentioned that a photo of Soichiro and Ragyou had them dancing in a field of wildflowers, among them were marigolds, thus the significance of her name being that the flower reminding him of one of the happier moments of [[spoiler: their lives before their marriage collapsed]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'': Aki Izayoi uses a Rose Deck. She is mainly associated with the black rose and red rose. The black rose represents the dark side of her, as she's seen as a witch for the majority of her life. After making up with her family, the red rose becomes more prominent, representing her love for her family and her love for her friends. Her Black Rose Dragon represents both colors, being a black dragon with red rose petals as body parts, but it still attacks with black rose betals and black vines.
* ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'':
** Yuzu Hiiragi represents the flower aspect of the Kachou Fuugetsu theme, thus her deck has a flower motif. It's not as obvious as with the decks of her three counterparts, since the musical aspect of Yuzu's Gensō/[[DubNameChange Melodious]] Deck overshadows the flower motif instead of the other way around, but her Gensō no '''Hana'''kasei/[[DubNameChange Melodious Choir]] monsters, reflect Yuzu's flower motif the most.
** Yuri has a carnivorous plant motif, representing his dangerous hunger for preys and power, thus he uses Predator Plants Deck. As twisted as he is, he describes his plants as flowers, which isn't exactly incorrect. The theme is also present in Starve Venom Fusion Dragon, which is sort of a hybrid between a dragon and carnivorous plants. His evolution, Greedy Venom Fusion Dragon, still follows the carnivorous plant theme, but his more colorful body and beautiful wings make him appear more like a beautiful flower. [[spoiler:After Zarc is detracted from Yuri's and Yuya's souls, Yuri loses his evilness and Starve Venom has also become benevolent. As Starve Venom fuses with Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon to become Odd-Eyes Venom Dragon, Starve Venom gets a fully purified form, gaining a [[BeautyEqualsGoodness beautiful violet and white body]] and trades his carnivorous plant theme for a CherryBlossom theme, representing Yuri's and Starve Venom's HeelFaceTurn. Odd-Eyes Venom Dragon is [[BeautyEqualsGoodness so beautiful]] that even the Fusion-hating Asuka Tenjouin is astonished by his beauty alone, and once Odd-Eyes Venom uses his Monster Effect, his wings generates a pair of large energy wings, giving him the appearance of a beautiful "blooming flower".]]
* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'': Kurama generally uses plants as his weapons, but he's mostly associated with roses and his [[SomethingAboutARose Rose Whip]]. The rose may represent his love for his human mother and his overall beautiful appearance, and the [[AdaptationDyeJob anime gave him red hair]] to empathize his rose motif.

* [[VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition Evelyn]] in ''Fanfic/WalkingInCircles'' is often associated with flowers, either as a small, unassuming but poisonous flower, or dried flowers that strung together, to be swayed by the winds helplessly, or little flowers that bloom strongly on rock walls despite their circumstance.
