[[quoteright:214:[[Comicbook/SwampThing http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/PlantPeople.jpeg]]]]
[[caption-width-right:214:The technical term is "[[BizarreSexualDimorphism Sexual Dimorphism]]". [[TvTropesWillRuinYourVocabulary In Troper]], this would be UglyGuyHotWife.]]

The Plant Person is a bridge between the Plant and Animal Kingdoms, being able to talk to plants (or at least understand them at an [[TheEmpath empathic level]]) and people alike. Their wisdom can be profound and [[BlueAndOrangeMorality alien]], coming as it does from a plant rather than animal (let alone human) point of view. Biologically, he or she is either a motile plant or a person with a lot of plant-like characteristics: they may be able to photosynthesize their own food, drink water from their feet, and even [[HealingFactor regrow severed limbs]]. If they lean more towards the animal, they probably still need to eat, but it may be "nutrients" or dirt rather than cheeseburgers (though they just might; hey, at least it [[ManEatingPlant isn't people]]).

They can usually claim without irony that they are "one with nature", living in forests and surrounded by life. They might be a mystical Dryad, a [[FreakLabAccident scientist who fell into a vat of chemicals]] ([[Comicbook/SwampThing or a mystical plant god who thinks he did]]), or a race of motile plants that just happens to look [[HumanAliens very human]] by accident, by [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith design]], or by ''[[EvilutionaryBiologist des]][[MixAndMatchCritters ign]]''. Despite generally having a human shape, they may or may not be able to casually pass for human. This is because they tend to have green or barky skin, leaves for hair and dress in {{Garden Garment}}s. Interestingly, there is a big disparity between male and female plant people, as the page image shows. Perhaps stemming from the [[ClassicalMythology classical]] Dryad, plant people [[OneGenderRace tend to be women]], and ''very'' attractive ones at that. Men, on the other hand, take more after trees than humans.

In a story, they are usually a NatureHero, or at least have great value in nature. They may also be a hermit or sage that advises the heroes. In extremes, they may be a KnightTemplar of an eco terrorist... that can [[WhenTreesAttack call killer trees]] on a whim and [[GreenThumb snare you]] [[TentacleRope in vines]], all while making their [[TheLostWoods lost forest]] [[ClosedCircle inescapable.]]

Expect them to have FertileFeet, and feel the effects of deprivation when removed from natural environments for long. They usually function as a FisherKing in whatever area they inhabit; poisoning them or the forest has a reciprocal effect.

* ''Green Legend Ran.''
* The main character of ''Verdant Lord''.
* ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'' has [[spoiler:Vash and Knives]] plus a few other nameless ones who mostly [[spoiler: are used to generate power. The nameless ones are humanoid in shape, but apparently are unable to communicate with normal humans]].
** The term "Plant" in this context is far more likely to be an allusion to the concept of a "Power Plant" than an actual, biological plant. When one considers what most plants are used for and their nigh-supernatural abilities, this makes far more sense.
* Cheza from ''Anime/WolfsRain''
* ''Webcomic/NowhereBoy'' has a plant person as one of the 12 Apostles.
* The Druids from ''Anime/OriginSpiritsOfThePast''.
* [[spoiler: Count D]] from ''Manga/PetShopOfHorrors''. [[spoiler: He tends to sprout vines when he's bleeding.]]
* Mandrakes from ''Manga/ThoseWhoHuntElves'' are tiny green elves with a rose-like flower and two leaves growing out of their heads. They sleep buried to the base of the flower in dirt. They also screech at you if you pick them.
* Zetsu from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. [[spoiler:At least the White half and a good part of Tobi's current and Madara's pre-death body were made from a non-sentient clone of [[GreenThumb the First Hokage]].]]
* Cosmo in ''Anime/SonicX.'' Her species is called "''Seed''rians" for a reason.
* Ayame and Momiji from OsamuTezuka's ''Lost World''. They are plants given intelligence through bioengineering and then grown into a humanoid shape in molds before being covered with artificial skin so as to pass for human. Another intelligent plant shows up in an early ''Manga/AstroBoy'' story, a tentacled flower piloting a MobileSuitHuman.
* Saibamen from ''DragonBall'' in a sense considering they grow from seeds in the ground.
* Mokuren Nagai from ''FlameOfRecca'' have the ability to control plants to the extent that he even can become a tree/human hybrid.

[[folder:Asian Animation]]
* The 2012 Chinese animated series ''Kodama'' [[http://www.iqiyi.com/dongman/20120925/111ed5cf2e73c692.html]] has humanoid plant spirits as a major element of the show. They can be powerful characters despite of their small size and cutesy appearance.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* The Green Man from ''ComicBook/AstroCity''.
* He appears very much an animal, but in some of his incarnations, Franchise/{{Superman}} has quite a few plant-like characteristics, up to and including drawing actual sustenance from the Sun, not from food. Occasionally he likes to [[LoisAndClark pig out on junk for the taste, though.]]
* Poison Ivy 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.
** Although, in the ''ComicBook/BatmanNoMansLand'' storyline, the police planned to take Ivy out (after she had seized control of Gotham City Park) with a powerful defoliant that would have killed all plant life in the park, including Ivy's monsters ''and'' Ivy herself, suggesting that she wasn't exactly human anymore. Whether it would have worked or not is unknown, because Ivy surrendered to save the children she was protecting. (Which caused Batman to answer the question pretty directly, saying that the act proved she was "still more human than plant.")
* 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 {{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.
* MarvelComics' the Comicbook/ManThing, now a member of the ''{{Thunderbolts}}. ''
* DCComics' the ''Comicbook/SwampThing.''
* Following the success of the Swamp Thing, ''Comicbook/BlackOrchid'' was {{retcon}}ned to also be a Plant Person. Noticeably though, while the later two Orchids are more plant than human, they can't control plants or flowers and their powers are primarily {{Glamour}} and pheromone manipulation.
* Atom and ''Comicbook/SwampThing'' villain Jason [[StevenUlyssesPerhero Wood]]roe; The Floronic Man
* Swamp Thing and Man-Thing are both [[CaptainErsatz Captain Ersatzes]] of a [[TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] comic monster called The Heap.

* The BigBad in ''Film/MenInBlack II'' is a form of a plant and takes form of a Victoria's Secret model.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* Dryads also show up in ''{{Narnia}}.'' Lewis describes them in great detail. Such as Birch dryads as looking like slender girls with showery hair, dressed in silver and fond of dancing, beech dryads as looking like gracious, queenly, goddesses dressed fresh transparent green, and oak dryads as looking like wizened old men with warts, gnarled fingers, and hair growing out of the warts.
* Ents in ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' are living trees.
* Parodied in ''Literature/BoredOfTheRings'' with the Vee-Ates, an army of fruits and vegetables on the warpath. They are led by Birdseye, a parody of the Green Giant (''See'' {{Advertising}}'', above'').
* Nym from ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' are "constructs" made of vines and leaves and such. They have FertileFeet and GreenThumb abilities.
* ''Top Secret'', a children's book about a boy who does a science project about "human photosynthesis," turning himself into a green-skinned plant-person.
* In 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]]
* The ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' has [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Zelosian Zelosians]], human-shaped plant aliens who can live for a month on sunlight and water. ''Literature/DeathStar'' has one named Celot Ratua Dil.

* ''GooseBumps'' had one in the book ''Stay Out of the Basement'', of which it is the main plot point.
* Creator/PhilipJoseFarmer's ''Dark is the Sun'' has Sloosh, one of a species of plant-centaurs.
* The stingbulbs from the ''Literature/{{Fablehaven}}'' series start out as little fruits, but if you prick your finger on one, it turns into an exact replica of you. It's not a perfect copy, though—a few memories are missing, it doesn't necessarily think and act like you (it obeys the orders it receives after transformation), and it only lives for a few days.
* In ''DorothyAndTheWizardOfOz'' they run into a race of plant people called the mangaboos.
* The kodama from ''Literature/ReturnToNeverend'' are a dryad-like race. [[TheDragon Kell]] is a unique example, and is ''quite'' violent.
* What everyone becomes after they die in Pentexore in ''Literature/DirgeForPresterJohn''. The bodies of the dead are planted and become trees.
* According to in-universe myth from ''Flower of Kamaleynik'' by Olga Gromyko, all living beings in the world are these, grown by TheMaker Goddess from the seeds of titular vine. A certain priest of her has shown the ability to [[spoiler: be resurrected from the dead by having [[SoulJar his soul stored]] and new body grown]] and, more impressively, to [[spoiler: transform inanimate objects into living creatures]].
* In Aprilynne Pike's ''Literature/WingsQuartet'', faeries are basically sentient plants. The "wings" that legends say that they have are actually flower blossoms.
* [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep The gardener]] in ''Literature/SsaliaAndTheDragonsOfAvienot'' takes care of numerous talking plants and is very plant-like himself (gnarled, tree-like skin and cotton grass hair), though to what degree he actually is a plant (or what kind of creature he is) is never made clear.
* The alien crew of ''Literature/RodAlbrightAlienAdventures'' includes Phil (last name [[PunnyName O'Dendron]]), the science officer who looks for all the world like an oversized sunflower in a rocket-boosted flowerpot. When Rod expresses surprise at sentience, he responds, "And you're [[Literature/TheyreMadeOutOfMeat made of meat]]. It's amazing you can think at all." Because he's a plant, he doesn't register on life-signs detectors, which has come in handy on a few occasions when some threat has captured the crew without realizing he was in the ship.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* Tybo the Giant Carrot Man on the ''LostInSpace'' episode "The Great Vegetable Rebellion". Technically a Plant Alien, but considering he's planning on turning the Robinsons into plants, ''and'' he's practically a RubberForeheadAlien...
* ''{{Creepshow}}'' has Creator/StephenKing playing a bumpkin who touched a meteor turning into a plant creature, but it wasn't a pleasant thing.
* Zhaan in ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' is plant-based and experiences rapture during solar flares. She can't actually talk to plants, though, and thinks of them the same way humans might a very stupid ape.

* Violet from ''Series/TheOuterLimits'' revival episode ''Flower Child''.
* Ficus the "vegeton" first officer from ''Series/{{Quark}}''

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* In ''MutantUA'', mutants (humans as well as furry humanoid animals) can have photosynthesis as one of their mutations. This make their skin/fur green and capable of feeding on sunlight.
* ''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 [[IncrediblyLamePun 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.
* In the Glorantha setting for ''{{Runequest}}'', elves are sentient humanoid plants.
* One of the mutations in ''TabletopGame/GammaWorld'' was Photosynthetic Skin, which allowed the mutant possessing it to produce their own food and heal lost HitPoints at 4x normal rate if in sunlight. Another option is to be an out-and-out human-shaped plant.
* ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}'' BioTech has a nanovirus that turns affected humans into plant people. The ''GURPSSupers'' and Powers supplements also include rules and options for creating a plant person character.
* ''VillainsAndVigilantes'' adventure ''There's a Crisis at Crusader Citadel''. One of the Crusaders {{NPC}}s is [[http://www.patric.net/docfiles/Crusaders-Evergreen_LL_v1.0.pdf Evergreen]], who has the plant powers of poison and plant control.
* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'', that part of the wood elf army which isn't [[FragileSpeedster Fragile Speedsters]] is composed pretty much entirely of plant people, ranging from dryads (human-sized, spikey, made of wood) to treemen (like dryads, only [[OurGiantsAreBigger much bigger]]).
* The Sylvan archetype in ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh'', which includes the humanlike Bladefender and Flowerknight.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Mythology]]
* Dryads appeared in ClassicalMythology, so this is OlderThanFeudalism.
* [[TheFairFolk The Green Man]].
* Swedish (and probably Scandinavian) folklore has the Skogsrå (which means roughly "forest ruler" or "magical being of the forest" depending on etymology), a [[AllTrollsAreDifferent kind of "pseudo-troll"]] who often appears as a very beautiful woman who tries to lure men deep into the woods. She was discernable from real people because her back was made of - in most versions a hollowed-out - tree.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''[[StarControl Star Control 2]]'' has the Supox, a race of sentient, omnivorous plant people.
* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' has dryads as enemies. Although they're either non-sapient or extremely xenophobic.
** There are also the spriggans. In ''Oblivion'', they looked more like attractive women with botanical features. In ''Skyrim'', they are quite literally person-shaped trees. They are described as nature guardians, which puts them at odds with the hagravens as they despise nature.
* Spar in ''BreathOfFire2'', Peco in ''BreathOfFire3''.
* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}}'' and ''[[VideoGame/{{Fallout3}} 3]]'' have Harold, an NPC ghoul with a tree he calls Bob growing out of his head. In the latter game, the tree has completely absorbed him, and his organs are distributed throughout its root system.
* ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' has [[http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Spore_carrier Spore Carriers]], humans that have been taken over by parasitic Bacteria in an experiment to genetically engineer plant spores. The ''Old World Blues'' DLC reveals that they originated from the Big MT R&D Facility and that the [[BrainInAJar Think]] [[MadScientist Tanks]] are responsible for them, amongst many other horrifying things in the game.
* Bracken in ''DungeonSiege''.
* The dndroids from ''VideoGame/HeroesOfMightAndMagic III'', and the treants from V
* The Kikwi, Deku and Koroks in ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' series. While they look like Hylian children, the Kokiri might actually be plant people as well, as they were given life by the Deku Tree and eventually become the Koroks.
* EVA in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater'' speculates that The End's unusual amount of stamina might be due to photosynthesis. Later, upon [[SkippableBoss one of his many possible deaths]], The End's skin actually does transform into bark.
* In the ''VideoGame/{{Thief}}'' series, Viktoria initially appears human but is actually a dryad of some sort, able to create long stabbing/entangling vines from her fingertips, and has bark-covered skin and glowing red eyes. She's one of the heads of the Pagans and all of them have a huge affinity for plants and wild things.
* The title species of ''VideoGame/{{Pikmin}}'', of course.
** One notable enemy in the second game disguises itself as a pair of dandelions before rising up to attack the Pikmin.
* Lilligant from ''{{Pokemon}}'', based off a dryad. [[OneGenderRace She's always female, too]].
** Bellossom looks and acts almost exactly like a hula girl. Grass-type Pokemon Phantump is actually described as a human child that got lost in the woods, making this an example of people who ''become'' a tree.
* The dryads, the treants, and the alura une/Venus weed monsters from the ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' series.
* The goddess Melandru from ''GuildWars''.
** The sylvari in ''VideoGame/GuildWars2''. [[ShownTheirWork To a scary degree, actually.]] [[http://www.arena.net/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/ArmorClothingConcepts.jpg See for yourself.]]
* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'' has the Ivy monsters. They were the end product of using [[TheVirus the T-Virus]] to genetically splice together plant and animal DNA. They are humanoid, which suggests the animal in question was or included human DNA. [[MightyGlacier They are slow, but pack quite a punch and soak up punishment like Miracle-Gro]].
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' has the Thorian, an extremely old and extremely intelligent plant organism living on Feros. It looks nothing like a human... more like a giant bulb of fleshy stuff with tentacle-like roots going off in every direction. It is also a villain, and uses spores to mind-control other creatures living around it. It can only speak through plant-based clones of individuals it has absorbed, which it can create within itself and then spit out to do its bidding.
* The Alraune monsters in the ''Disgaea'' series.
* In ''TheSims2'', with the addition of the Seasons expansion pack, it is possible to have "Plant-Sims". If a Sim uses too many pesticides, they turn into a "Plant-Sim". Instead of the usual needs, they only need water, light, and social. They can also reproduce asexually by shaking spores out of the leaf clusters that replace their hair. (Toddlers who are turned into Plant-Sims have a large daisy on top of their heads instead of the leaf clusters that older Plant-Sims have...which is kind of disturbing considering that flowers are a plant's reproductive parts.)
** ''TheSims3'' brought Plant-Sims back with the University Life add-on.
* The majority of [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots Mave]][[VillainByDefault rick]] bosses from the ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' series are [[PettingZooPeople based on animals and mythological creatures]] (there's also one [[MushroomMan mushroom]]). However, the remaining 4 are based on plants. First, there's Wire Sponge[[note]]Wire Sponge isn't based on a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sponge sea sponge]] (which is an animal) [[CommonKnowledge as many believe]]. He is actually based on the luffa fruit, specifically ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luffa_aegyptiaca Luffa aegyptiaca]]'', which can be used as a sponge after it ripens.[[/note]] from ''Mega Man X2'', Axle the Red from ''X5'' (who is based on a rose), Tornado T'''onion''' from ''X7'' (you read that correctly. [[FlatWhat A Maverick based on an onion]], of all things), and Optic Sunflower from ''X8''.
* ''VideoGame/ParappaTheRapper'' has Sunny Funny, an anthropomorphic flower. Her father, General Potter, is a humanoid potted plant. And of course, there's [[OldMaster Chop Chop Master Onion]].
* Zyra, the Rise of the Thorns from ''LeagueOfLegends'' is really an ancient, massive carnivorous plant who, in an attempt to escape its own inevitable death by starvation, consumed a female human mage and rebirthed itself into an alluring feminine humanoid form who wields powerful plant-based magic revolving around thorns and vines.
* Florans in ''{{VideoGame/Starbound}}'' are mostly hostile tribal warriors who treat living creatures, sentient races included, with the kind of lack of empathy we show to plants. They're also cannibalistic and not especially bright, even the floran PC's investigate quotes make them seem like a ManChild.
* Funguy, NeoFio and Turnip from ''VideoGame/ChronoCross''.
* ''Mind Snares: Alice's Journey'' has a tree with male and female faces which act as distinct entities. The male portion is called Animus and the female portion is called Anima, and they consider each other lovers.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* In ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'', [[spoiler:Marcia Sutton]] is a dryad. Ysengrin is also almost a plant person: as a gift from Coyote, he has the ability to command all the plants of the forest, and he wears magic PowerArmor made from trees, which might not seem like much of a fit for this trope [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=671 until you see what he looks like without it...]]
* In ''{{Chirault}}'', pretty much all trees are sapient and dangerous to cross, but most of them are inactive.
* Dryads are a major race in ''{{Felarya}}''.
* [[http://bobadventures.comicgenesis.com/d/20100330.html Mr. Geranium]] from ''TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'' is a particularly ridiculous example. He's literally a potted geranium who gained sentience and super-powers in a [[FreakLabAccident freak accident.]] Probably the single most absurd element in the comic, he's only appeared once since his introduction.
* Audrey of ''LifeSketch''. A shameless reference to Theatre/LittleShopOfHorrors, right down to the thirst for human blood.
* ''GuildedAge'' has Syr'Nj and other Wood Elves who refer to most bodily parts as their plant equivalents and apparently can drink through their taproots (aka toes).
* [[MoePersonification Earth]] in ''Webcomic/PlanetaryMoe'' is described as having a flower sticking out from his/her head, which would kill the planet if it was ever removed.
* KarateBears were around back when there were still [[http://www.karatebears.com/2012/08/tree-hugger.html Dryads]].
* ''Webcomic/TheHorrifyingExperimentsOfDrPleasant'' has subject A-2.14/Phophora. She's green, covered in flowers, and emits a powerful hallucinogen.
* The seedlings in ''Webcomic/LuminaryChildren'' are this.

* In ''TheDragonWarsSaga'' the dryads (nymphs with a life affinity) are an example.
* The Element Lord of the Jungle in ''{{Bionicle}}''. The Bota Magnan Agori may also count.
* Among the [[RevenueEnhancingDevices exotic pets]] in Website/UniCreatures are a series of dryads, one for each season. One of the (free) seasonal pets is a flower sprite of some kind.
* ''TheMonsterGirlEncyclopedia'' has the Alraune, green-skinned {{Cute Monster Girl}}s with large breasts that releases pollen by having sex with human males.
* When Dr. Shelton from ''DarwinsSoldiers'' was drowning he stabbed himself with a [[PlayingWithSyringes superpower syringe]] in the hopes of getting something that would save his life. It didn't help in the slightest, but he was rescued anyway, and later was very disappointed to find that this was the power he received.
* Mikliks in ''Roleplay/AsteroidQuest'' start as plants in the ground, and are considered "born" when they uproot themselves. Once uprooted, they look like LizardFolk.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'': Dr. Reginald Bushroot.
* The Wuts from ''TheDreamstone'' are an entire race of [[PlantPerson Plant People]].
* Parodied in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' where a hippie wants to become a tree. He is always shown standing in a plant pot and talks about getting surgeries that will turn him into a plant.
* Flora from ''WesternAnimation/JayceAndTheWheeledWarriors'' was born from a blossom created by the hero's father Audric.
* [[http://www.danhausertrek.com/AnimatedSeries/Lifeforms.html#Phylo Phylosians]] from ''WesternAnimation/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries'' are PlantAliens.
* Poison Ivy in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' created artificial plant people to assist her schemes in several episodes (plus the episode in which she developed a way to punish her enemies by turning them into [inanimate] trees).
** Then the ''ComicBook/BatmanAdventures'' spin-off comic said that the pale-skinned Ivy in the revamp was another artificial plant person, and that the real Ivy was fully human and off doing her own thing somewhere else.
