* 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, their bodies quickly dissolve after death, they are capable of human speech after surgical alteration, and the material they are made of does not appear in photographs.
** Another Lovecraft example is the Elder Things in ''At The Mountains of Madness'' which are the original StarfishAliens and have tissues more like plants than animals.
* Even ''StarWars'' has this in the short story "Day of the Sepulchral Night". Sentient, humanoid, plant species called Zelosians.
** Zelosians are basically Ridiculously Human Plant Aliens. They bleed green, have very vivid green eyes, and can live for a month on water and sunlight, but otherwise are basically human, down to digestive tracts and reproduction. They're even classified as "Near-Human", implying that they're [[HalfHumanHybrid capable of interbreeding with humans]]. Somehow. Lampshaded by one of them in ''Literature/DeathStar'', when he wonders if any geneticists have been able to make sense of his kind.

* ''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.
