* Behold, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euglena Euglena]]. It's a single celled organism that photosynthesises like an alga, but swims around like a protozoan. Before the kingdom Protista was created and it was realised organisms could be something other than an animal or a plant, botanists and zoologists used to fight over this little thing to determine whose field of study it belongs to. Even now Euglena is usually found in the first chapters of both zoology and botany books.

* [[DisneyChannel Disney Junior's]] ''WesternAnimation/TheOctonauts'' brings us "Vegimals," a group of semi-anthropomorphic vegetables, with a turnip called "Tunip" as their leader. They communicate using cheeping and trilling noises and can whip up a mean "fish biscuit" (not made of actual fish, but tastes fishy.)

* The Ten-Tailed Beast from ''Franchise/{{Naruto}}'' was once a supernatural/extraterrestrial tree, and while in its incomplete states it appears more animal than plant it has bark-coloured skin, a bulb-like protrusion on its back, can manifest in a tree-like form, project chakra-draining roots, and fire giant wooden stakes. Its third form has a NestedMouth resembling a ''Rafflesia'' flower.

DNA. As a result, they have green skin, a spore-based reproductive process that means that any planet they're on will be perpetually infested by them, and they can potentially convert a planet's entire biosphere into an Orkoid fungal environment given enough time and population.

Added DiffLines:

* Speaking about protists, ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mesodinium_chamaeleon Mesodinium Chamaeleon]]'' is a protist that combines ''both'' plant and animal biology, being able to eat plants, and then use the chlorophyll granules from the plants to generate energy.

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.
