* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' has a ''lot'' of plant creatures (too many to list). Arguably the most prominent ones would be the Piranha Plants.
** Several fungus-based creatures appear too, most famously the Toads and Goombas.
** The Whittles from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2''.

* Since ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', the series has included Deku Babas in all of its 3D games. They resemble enormous venus flytraps, and the way to kill them is to sever the stalk. ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'' introduced a distant relative called ''Boku'' Babas, and one boss that was a 50-foot Boko Baba. Later, ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' gave us a 50-foot ''two-headed'' [[spoiler: Actually three headed]] Deku Baba.
** Deku Scrubs. They have a society (and king) in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'', and are sometimes shown to be good businessshrubs.
** There's also the Koroks in ''The Wind Waker'', which are apparently another form of the Kokiri from ''Ocarina of Time'', meaning the Kokiri must be plants too, even though they look exactly like Hylian children. It would explain where they come from if they can't grow up anyway.

* Creator/HPLovecraft's ''The Whisperer in Darkness'' features an alien race called the Mi-go, sometimes called the "fungi from Yuggoth". They are not true fungi, though. In appearance they are somewhat crustacean with membranous wings.

* The protagonist of ''Pkhentz'' by Andrei Sinyavsky is a plant-like alien who was stranded from his home planet when his ship crashed and disguises himself as a human [[HumansThroughAlienEyes so he can live among people unnoticed]]. He isn't very happy.

* The Citoac in the Franchise/StarTrekNovelVerse (see Literature/StarfleetCorpsOfEngineers). The Mabrae, another Franchise/StarTrekNovelVerse culture (appearing in ''Literature/StarTrekTheLostEra'' and ''Literature/StarTrekTheNextGenerationRelaunch''), are animals but live symbiotically with plants that grow on their bodies, and are tailored to each individual. Security guards have tough bark as natural body armour, diplomats and politicians grow exotic colourful flowers. These plants are essentially the Mabrae's clothes. They consider segregation between leaf and flesh barbaric.
** In Creator/DianeDuane's ''Franchise/StarTrek'' novel "Doctor's Orders", the Lahit are basically walking fir trees. Upon seeing a group of them, [=McCoy=] snarks that [[Theatre/{{Macbeth}} Birnham Wood finally gets to come to Dunsinane]].

** Actually, in the cartoon the plant is called Audrey Jr. and is not an alien. Rather, it is a plant sprouted from a prehistoric seed.

* ''[[Creator/BruceCoville Bruce Coville's Alien Adventures]]'' includes among a sentient plant named Phil among its crew. He looks just like a giant flower in a floating pot and speaks by 'burping' air through his pods.
** His last name is [[IncrediblyLamePun O'Dendron]]. When the main character expresses astonishment that a plant could talk, he responds, "You're made of meat. It's a wonder you can think at all." Which is also a ShoutOut to [[http://baetzler.de/humor/meat_beings.html this]] story.
** For the record, his full name is actually Phillogenous esk Piemondum in the original editions of the books. (And most likely in the reprints as well.)
