* In ''ComicBook/DeepGravity'', when Drummond is informed that the animal-like lifeforms he's looking at can photosynthesize, he's surprised and asks if they're plants. He's told that "animal" and "plant" aren't really valuable biological distinctions for things from a completely different planet; they ''could'' be called plant aliens, but that's just applying Earth terminology to things that don't really follow Earth rules.

* The Citoac in the Franchise/StarTrekNovelVerse (see Literature/StarfleetCorpsOfEngineers). The Mabrae, another StarTrekNovelVerse culture (appearing in ''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.

* The Supox in ''StarControl II''. When the protagonist protests that human scientists (and science-fiction authors) have proven that intelligent plant life is a scientific impossibility, the Supox spokesman replies, "Yes. This has been confirmed by our people as well. Strange, is it not? Many of our people regard this inconsistency as proof of our divine origin." Luckily, they aren't [[ScaryDogmaticAliens jerks about it]].

* The Flowers that lead the ''ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum'' are this, with the twist that they were originally plants from ''Earth'' that ended up on another planet due to a literal PlotHole.

* The Orks of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' are half PlantAliens. They're a symbiotic relationship between a mammal-like creature and a fungus, meaning they have green skin but red blood. They [[MonogenderMonsters reproduce asexually]], giving off spores all the time which grow new Orks in underground wombs, and as a result are basically impossible to completely wipe out. Later versions RetCon them as fungus/algae/vertebrate hybrids when somebody pointed out the difference between plants and fungi.

* The Orks of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' are half PlantAliens. They're have had a weird history with this trope. About the only thing that has remained constant is that they [[MonogenderMonsters reproduce asexually]], giving off spores through their life which grow new Orks in underground wombs; they release extra spores upon death, and as a result are basically impossible to completely wipe out. It's also implied they can photosynthesize. As for what else is canon, well, the writers haven't been able to find something that makes sense. They've gone from a symbiotic relationship between a mammal-like creature and a fungus, meaning they have green skin but red blood. They [[MonogenderMonsters reproduce asexually]], giving off spores all the time which grow new Orks in underground wombs, and as a result are basically impossible blood, to completely wipe out. Later versions RetCon them as fungus/algae/vertebrate hybrids when (after somebody pointed out the difference between plants and fungi.fungi).

* In ''VideoGame/Waking Mars'', the Zoa, while not technically plants, are fairly similar to plants, considering they are stationary.
