* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' of course, has several species of plant people, including treants and dryads.
** Not to mention the woodling template, [[UpToEleven which lets you add this trope to any existing species]], and the topiary guardians, which are [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin animated topiary sculptures.]] If D&D has examples of a trope, it has a LOT of them.
** Most plant people in the game are more-or-less benign (or at least protectors of nature) but an outright evil example is nightshades (also known as wood woses) which are spirits of poisonous plants. They look like sylvan dwarves covered with leaves and vines, and have powers over both plant life [[PoisonIsEvil and poison.]] Druids hunt them the way farmers root out weeds.

This trope has a number of subtypes relating to specific types and uses of plant-based intelligent creatures in media. To wit:

* The Seedlings, the main race of ''VideoGame/EverOasis,'' are a race of plant people. The look generally humanoid, but they have wooden horns and have [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation a much wider variety of skin tones than humans]]. They also have a bit of BizarreSexualDimorphism in their horns; males have more gnarled, branchlike horns, while female horns are smoother split down the middle like seed pods.

When he was a non-sentient pile of goo he attacked with sharp tree like spikes. His horns resemble branches, his essence twists and deforms itself into an evil looking tree when the Emperor seals him away, his joints creak like wood, and during his confrontation with the Scotsman, he even calls Aku a tree-demon.
