* In Creator/OrsonScottCard's ''Speaker for the Dead'', [[spoiler:the Pequeninos start their lives as mammals, then the males transform themselves into sentient trees upon death as part of their life cycle (females do this too, but much more rarely, and only to start new communities or to replace a dying Mother Tree). The transformation is actually required for their system of reproduction. In fact, it turns out every native life-form on their planet has an element of this: the snakes and the river reeds, the cows and the high grass, etc]]

* ''ComicBook/PoisonIvy'' from ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' is a borderline case, depending on the medium. When she first appeared in the comic books, she was merely a murderous seductress with a plant motif. Later on, she took on the persona of an "eco-terrorist" with a little mad scientist thrown in. In current comics continuity, Poison Ivy has been physiologically part-plant since The Floronic Man's initial experiments. Initially, she only had to ability to exude plant-based poisons from her own body and was immune to all poisons. Through the years, she has developed the ability to control plants (size, shape and movement and, occasionally, behavior if one of her hybrids has a level of sentience) and her physiology has changed dramatically so that she now resembles a plant, down to the fact that her costume, once a leafy one-piece bathing suit, now consists of her own leaves]] arranged in an acceptable fashion on her body. She exhibits more or less plant-like qualities depending on the artist, but these qualities are generally constant. In ''Comicbook/SwampThing'', she is described as having a link to a mystical/elemental being called "The May Queen", but this is rarely mentioned. A link to a force (much like the Speed Force in TheFlash) called "The Green" is implied as well, and she can use this to communicate with others over long distances via plants.

* DC comics villain [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Solomon Grundy]] was a zombie whose body as much plant matter as it was flesh. That's why the original GreenLantern (as in, Alan Scott) found it almost impossible to fight him. Due to his ring being ineffective against wood, it barely worked on Grundy.
* The mutant criminal Black Tom Cassidy, partner of TheJuggernaut, became one for a while. After doctors treated his wounds with a wood-like substance, a combination of a genetic virus and SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}}'s mutated cells made his body nearly all plant matter. This benefitted Tom's mutant powers immensely, seeing as he had to amplify them through wood, and he was more powerful than ever before. Sadly, he was eventually driven insane from the change, and committed many murders in this form, including a young boy until the change was undone by M-Day. (He didn't lose his regular mutant powers, but his now-former friend the Juggernaut convinced him to turn himself in.
