* Aku, the main villain of Samurai Jack, is not a tree per se, so much as he is made OF trees. In his most common form, his body makes wooden creaking and crackling noises whenever he moves, and his body language in general tends to be very stiff.

* In the ''VideoGame/{{Civilization}} IV'' mod ''FallFromHeaven'', the [[OurElvesAreDifferent Ljosalfar]] have "March of the Trees" as their World Spell (a powerful single-use ability). All forest tiles within the faction's borders (those unoccupied by enemy units) are transformed into Treants (10 strength) for 5 turns. After that time, they turn back into forests wherever they are located. Only really useful if the faction is getting invaded, and you lack defensive units.

** [[http://magiccards.info/query?q=Liege+tangle&v=card&s=cname Liege of the Tangle]], while not a walking tree himself, can turn all of your lands into a vengeful army that can curbstomp dragons in their wake. While he can turn any land into this, his name and color implies trees, and the rules basically make any land "awakwned" this way basically a clone of him down to the color (the Tangle is the forest part of Mirrodin, covered in copper trees).

** Treants and the larger Ancients in ''[=WarCraft=] III'' are guardians of nature and common allies of the Nightelves (the latter type serve as buildings and can be uprooted to fight or relocate the base.
** In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', Balance druids can summon treants to fight for them, while Restoration Druids can ''become'' treants without any offensive capacities but improved healing.
** Treants are generic fighting machines in ''Warcraft'', but in ''VideoGame/DefenseOfTheAncients'', there is a Treant Protector which is a hero with one of the best strength ratings in the game -- a tree that not only attacks, but causes the woods around him to attack also.
* In ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'', Maokai [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Twisted Treant]] is a tree brought to life by magic. His animation was not of his will, however, and more or less wants to [[DeathSeeker find a way to]] [[{{Pun}} return to his roots]], so to say.

* The shambler trees (actually a mutually-supporting ecology of plant-like creatures) in the sci-fi series ''Literature/TheWarAgainstTheChtorr''. The shambler tree and its [[GiantFlyer carnivorous tenants]] harvest an area, then move on at a rate of a kilometre a day. "A Season for Slaughter" goes into unsettling detail explaining how such a tree could walk (it has to virtually become an animal) and [[ManEatingPlant how it feeds]].
