Added DiffLines:

* The Plant species in ''VideoGame/MonsterRancher'' manages to cover both flavors of Planimal, perhaps unsurprisingly. The base monster is a sentient plant, while monsters with the Plant subtype will have plantlike coloration and leafy accents on their bodies.

As are a number of other Grass types that resemble animals such as the other Grass starters, Pansage, Leafeon, Deerling, Sawsbuck In ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', pretty much every [[GreenThumb Grass-type]] falls into this to some degree. [[SeasonalBaggage Sawsbuck]], pictured above, and others.falls pretty heavily on the "animal" side, with other species such as Ferroseed cleaving definitively towards plants.

Sometimes, an organism will have both [[FantasticFlora characteristics of a plant]] (for example, ability to photosynthesize, has leaves, flowers and other plant parts) and characteristics of an animal (The ability to move around at will and it resembles a familiar creature). Scientists don't know how to classify it. We like to call it a Planimal.

* In the ''Literature/TheIronTeeth'' web serial there large stick bug like beasts that mimic trees and attack animals or people who get to close. They fit this trope because part of their disguise is that they have actual symbiotic plants growing from them.

* The Vegetable Lamb of Tartary. [[spoiler:It's actually just a cotton bush...and a fern rhizome. It's a complicated story.]]
** [[http://www.wired.com/2014/04/fantastically-wrong-vegetable-lamb-tartary/ Wired]] has a fairly good article on it. Better than wikipedia which rather leaves you with half the story. The wiki page doesn't even mention the [[spoiler: cotton]] so it leaves you a bit baffled as to why the vegetable lamb was even a thing at all.
