When TheMerch goes FunSize. It seems anyone and everything you can think of has a plushie toy based on it, especially in Japan when it comes to {{Anime}} and VideoGame characters (minor or major). These can be official or fan made.

Although they are mostly toys, they are still featured on shows, especially fan made works.

Can overlap with MisaimedMarketing if the work wasn't aimed at children to begin with.

* One of the more popular plush brands in Japan is [[http://www.gift-gift.jp/nui/index.html Gift]], with something close to ''[[http://goo.gl/UwC5iQ 330]]'' releases. Good luck finding any after their initial batch, though; they run in very limited quantities.

* [[Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex Tachikoma]] plushies, or as they're commonly refered to- [[http://www.takotech.net/mshp/media/users/lucas/animaxtachiplush.jpg Plushikomas]]. Ironically, the [[http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h245/DRCEQ2/KakkoiCon%202008/Shwag/TachikomaPlushie.jpg blue one]] is the rarest one to find.
* There are FOUR different official plushie styles that have been released over the years for Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia. [[http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2012/188/d/6/my_hetalia_plush_trio_by_pokemonmasato-d56elhq.jpg One set]] modeled after the "Axis Powers" and "World Series" as the characters appear normally, [[http://i1109.photobucket.com/albums/h437/hong-zhi-zhu/allies.jpg one set]] modeled after the [[UncattyResemblance Nekotalia]] characters in a keychain form, and two more recent styles: [[ one]] based on the "Desktop Mascots" and [[http://i1131.photobucket.com/albums/m550/ponytale_goods/hetalia_plush01.jpg another]] based on the anime style of [[ArtEvolution "Beautiful World".]] Add some popular Hetalia "pet" plushies...and that's not even touching [[http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2011/292/3/3/hetalia_mochi_plush_dolls_by_threnodi-d4dbx17.jpg the]] [[http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2010/199/0/4/Young_Prussia___Hetalia_by_Threnodi.jpg huge]] [[http://img0.etsystatic.com/005/0/6906277/il_570xN.401090382_ltc2.jpg amount]] [[http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs45/i/2009/057/a/f/England_Hetalia_plushie_x3_by_kaatek.jpg of]] [[http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2012/164/c/7/hetalia_chibi_romano_plush_2_by_mayu_96-d53bc4n.jpg fan-made]] [[http://th06.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/f/2011/223/e/7/custom_plush__italy_by_pu_sama-d468zxg.jpg plushies]] [[http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs42/f/2009/065/3/c/Hetalia__Ameican_Revolution_by_melrosestormhaven.jpg out]] [[http://th09.deviantart.net/fs71/PRE/i/2012/150/5/3/mermaid_france_plushie_by_chihayatheblackangel-d51mj71.jpg there!]]
* In ''[[VideoGame/PriPara [=PriPara=]]]'', Mirei has a plush pillow of Kuma, and Hibiki has a plush of herself she uses to get herself out of embarrassing situations, both of which were made into real products. All of the mascots in the show, along with [=SoLaMi=] Smile, Dressing Pafe, My Dream, Aroma and Mikan and the boy idol group WITH, also have plushies.
* A popular trend in Japan is SEGA's line-up of nesoberi plushies. Nesoberi means "lying down" in Japanese, and these plushies usually have characters with funny expressions on their face in a lying-down pose. Perhaps the most well-known nesoberi plushies come from ''Franchise/LoveLive'', with many variations being made in both outfits and sizes. The biggest one made so far is a 40 inch Chika from ''Anime/LoveLiveSunshine''. Other franchises have gotten nesoberi plushies as well, including ''Anime/BangDream'', ''Manga/DetectiveConan'', ''Anime/KemonoFriends'' and ''[=PriPara=]''. They've also made nesoberis of Creator/{{Disney}} characters like WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse and [[Disney/LiloAndStitch Stitch]].
* In ''Anime/MahoGirlsPrecure'', the girls transform with the help of Mirai's stuffed teddy bear Mofurun. There's also numerous ''Pretty Cure'' plushies for sale in Japan, with the most popular being the Funwari Cure Friends series.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* You [[Comicbook/{{Watchmen}} just]] [[http://fandomania.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/watchmen2.jpg knew]] it was [[http://blog.handmadestuffs.com/2009/03/more-comic-plush.html going]] to [[http://fera-festiva.deviantart.com/art/Watchmen-Babies-99617998 happen]] [[http://fera-festiva.deviantart.com/art/Baby-Manhattan-101743711 eventually]]. (Warning: do not click the last link if you are offended by plush blue penises.)
* Creator/MarvelComics [[http://shop.marvel.com/search/?keywords1=Plush&method=all&collection=sitebuilder%2Fcatalog-200417&x=0&y=0 Plushies]].
* It is possible to find patterns for a Bamf; that is a defictionalized plushie version of Nightcrawler.
* In-universe, the [[ComicBook/TeenTitans Titans]] sold likeness rights in the early nineties (which, [[ComicBookTime by this time]], is probably around 2003 or so) so floating around somewhere in Franchise/TheDCU are Starfire, ComicBook/{{Nightwing}}, and Beast Boy plushies.
** Red Tornado's daughter, Traya, had a Beast Boy plushie.
* [[http://www.toplessrobot.com/2010/06/scott_pilgrims_plushie_little_life.php Some now exist of]] [[ComicBook/ScottPilgrim Scott and Ramona.]]
* In-Universe, Oracle in ''Comicbook/BirdsOfPrey'' was sometimes shown with a plushie Batgirl or Nightwing on her computer desk.

[[folder:Eastern Animation]]
* ''Animation/GogonaDaTovlisGunda'', a [[UsefulNotes/SovietRussiaUkraineAndSoOn Soviet]] [[UsefulNotes/GeorgiaEurope Georgian]] short about a snowman named Snowball and an unnamed girl who make friends with each other. The short accumulated enough popularity in Georgia to warrant plenty of ''Tovlis Gunda'' licensed products, including plushies of Snowball.

* There's a line of ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' plush dolls made by a company called [[http://www.toyvault.com/ Toy Vault]]. Not only do they make plushies of well-known Kaiju such as Godzilla, Mothra, and Rodan, but they also produce plushies of more obscure monsters such as [[Film/AllMonstersAttack Gabara]], [[Film/GodzillaVsMechagodzilla King Seesar]], and the completely evil [[Film/GodzillaVsDestoroyah Destoroyah]].
* When ''Film/{{Gremlins}}'' first came out, plushies of Gizmo were very popular (and still common at toy shows and antique shops). There was also a Furby-compatible interactive Gizmo. There was even a plushie of Stripe (the main Gremlin from the first movie). Said Stripe plushie is now extremely rare and considered highly collectable among Gremlins fans.
* There's a line of plush toys that are based upon the ''Franchise/{{Alien}}'' franchise. These include the Chestburster, Dog-Alien Chestburster, the Queen Chestburster, and a Facehugger. While they are adorable versions of a monstrous fetus that emerges violently from one's chest, [[MisaimedMarketing they're probably NOT the best thing to give your children as a gift.]]
* Spencer's Gifts once sold [[Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow Dr. Frank N Furter]] dolls that played a sample of the ''[[EarWorm Time Warp]]'' when squeezed. They're now very hard to find and are considered highly collectible by Rocky Horror fans.
** Spencer's Gifts now sells plushies of [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy Krueger]], [[Franchise/FridayThe13th Jason Voorhees]], and [[Franchise/TheTexasChainsawMassacre Leatherface]]. And they're simply... um... adorable?
* There is a fan-made plush doll of [[Film/TheMatrix Agent Smith]] and [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Elrond]] ([[http://hatsukoi.deviantart.com/art/Lord-of-the-Rings-Plush-Doll-14029543 Elrohir]] supports this); no [[Film/TheAdventuresOfPriscillaQueenOfTheDesert Mitzi]] though. They were quite possibly from [[http://www.nasseh-ya.com/ here]] several years ago.
* There are commercially available plushie versions of the [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog]] and the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch. As well as the Black Knight, with Velcro limbs.
* Creator/KevinSmith is proud to sell you Mooby The Golden Calf from Film/TheViewAskewniverse.
* You can buy a plushie Iorek Byrnison and golden monkey based on the movie ''Film/TheGoldenCompass''. You know, because that monkey was so lovable and cuddly.
* About ten-odd years ago, there was a line of [[Franchise/UniversalHorror Universal Monsters]] plushies which featured Frankenstein's Monster, the Wolfman, and others. These were "generic" amalgamations of the Monsters, lacking any specific actor's features.
* There are now ''Franchise/{{Ghostbusters}}'' plushies in claw machines around the USA; these depict Slimer, Stay-Puft, and the four heroes in "chibi" form.

* Phear [[http://www.toyvault.com/cthulhu/index.html Plushie Cthulhu]]. [[http://www.toyvault.com/cthulhu/oop.html They also come in such variants]] as Elvis Franchise/{{Cthulhu|Mythos}}, Miskatonic graduate Cthulhu, vacation Cthulhu, and Christmas Cthulhu (with a little Santa hat and jingle bells on its tentacles).
** The ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu'' RPG supplement Secrets of Japan deliberately invoked this trope with Cthulhu, suggesting that a plushie doll made by cultists of Cthulhu could become possessed with the malevolent spirit of its malevolent namesake.
** ''Literature/TheLaundryFiles'' has the protagonist making an [[NoodleIncident offhand reference]] to the panic caused among his organisation when they first came out.
** And now it's time for ''WebVideo/CallsForCthulhu''
* In the age before the [[Film/HarryPotter films]], ''Literature/HarryPotter'' had plushies out of the Golden Trio and their pets, though in the case of owls, there were about five different kinds and they had scrolls attached to their feet. Each scroll had a different message.
* There is now a Phantom of the Opera plushie created by Chérie Shulter and El Gibbs. They are true to [[ThePhantomOfTheOpera the original book]] by Gaston Leroux and are adorable to true "phans" and slightly strange to others.
** An earlier Phantom plushie was one of the monsters in the ''Universal Monsters'' line of "beanies." His mask was separate from his face, but its nose was "stuffed," and he lacked a "real" nose underneath!
* Librarian and Death of Rats plushies used to be available from the Literature/{{Discworld}} Emporium. A Librarian in the 2014 Convention T-shirt was available at the Con.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger'' exists. There were plushie toys of ''Zyuranger'' when it was airing (that even appeared in a late episode).
** And there are some for ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', or at least were.
** Inverted for ''Series/ChikyuuSentaiFiveman'', whereas they introduced plushies of the Fivemen and they occasionally comment on the scenes at times. [[OldShame They're not well-received]].
** Plushies of [[Series/DobutsuSentaiZyuohger Zyumans]] and unmorphed [[Series/UchuSentaiKyuranger Kyurangers]] exist.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** The Adipose from the episode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E1PartnersInCrime "Partners in Crime"]] exist. [[http://www.doctorwhotoys.net/adipose.htm There are]] plushie Adipose.
** Soon to come are [[http://www.geekalerts.com/doctor-who-talking-plush-dalek/ plushie Daleks!]] Quite possibly the cutest thing that will ever EXTERMINATE you. Also available is a plushie TARDIS.
* ''Series/{{Angel}}'': Smile Time
** And yes, you [[http://www.amazon.com/Buffy-Vampire-Slayer-Angel-21-Inch/dp/B000FS9GRK/ref=pd_sim_t_1 can get one yourself!]]
** Or of Spike for that matter.
* Odd (and [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hilarious]]) in-universe example/subversion: In one episode, Earth insists that ''Series/BabylonFive'' put a gift shop on board. The thing that finally kills it is when Ivanova shows Captain John Sheridan a teddy bear dressed up in baseball attire, with a Babylon 5 cap and a baseball uniform listing his name as "Bearbylon" and his number as 5. Sheridan finds it cute, until he sees the initials "JS" stitched to the front. He [[ThrownOutTheAirlock spaces]] the teddy bear posthaste. [[RealitySubtext The bear was a gift to]] Creator/JMichaelStraczynski, [[RealitySubtext from a friend who knew all about JMS's hatred of all things cute and cuddly. The spacing was retribution for the gift.]] And it gets better: said friend was Creator/PeterDavid, whose ''Series/SpaceCases'' subsequently had the crew find the bear and wonder about what sort of person would throw it into space...
* The conveyor belt round in ''Series/TheGenerationGame'' always featured a cuddly toy as one of the items.
* From ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' comes a plush made out of one of their more [[MemeticMutation Memetacular]] moments: [[http://www.stylinonline.com/big-bang-theory-soft-kitty.html the Soft Kitty!]]
* ''Series/BarneyAndFriends'' centers around a stuffed animal named Barney that kids imagine into a real, adult-sized dinosaur. During its run, many plush versions of him were released, some of which had functions from glowing in the dark to interacting with the television show, VHS tapes and computer games based on the show. There were also plush dolls of Barney's pals Baby Bop and BJ.

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* OlderThanTelevision. Since 1925, Alfred the penguin is the pet of French young globetrotters ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zig_et_Puce Zig et Puce]]''. In early 1927, a plushy Alfred toy was merchandised: it launched a huge Alfred craze all over France. When aviator Charles Lindbergh achieved his historical transatlantic flight to Paris that year, he was given an Alfred plushy and brought it with him as a mascot in his flight from Paris to Brussels. Since EverythingsBetterWithPlushies and EverythingsBetterWithPenguins, you just can't go wrong with a plushy penguin.
* Famously {{averted|Trope}} with ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes''. For obvious reasons, merchandisers were very interested in making Hobbes plushies. Since Hobbes is or often at least appears to be a plushie in-universe, this would have counted as {{Defictionalization}}. However, Bill Waterson was dead set against any merchandising of his strip and went to great lengths to prevent the syndicate from doing so.

[[folder: Puppet Shows]]
* In ''Series/SesameStreet'', some of the characters have favorite stuffed animals. Big Bird has a teddy bear named Radar, Elmo has a stuffed toy called Baby David, and Julia has a stuffed rabbit named Fluffster. Only Radar was made into a real plush, but there are tons of Sesame Street stuffed animals of most of the main cast available.
* ''Series/TheNoddyShop'': One of the toys in the titular shop is Bonita Flamingo, who is a stuffed carnival toy. Warloworth also is a stuffed weasel that lives in a jack-in-a-box with cute button eyes. None of these characters were made into actual toys, and only the characters from the stories the kids told were made. Oddly enough, the Bumpy Dog plush that appears in some episodes was the actual GUND plush of said character.

* Music/{{VOCALOID}} has a lineup of plushies based on the Crypton-produced Vocaloids. Especially of note is Tako Luka, who has ''seven'' different versions, each varying in facial expressions (smile, calm, drooling, etc.)

[[folder:Tabletop RPG]]
* ''TabletopGame/PlueschPowerUndPlunder'' is a German game about [[LivingToys sapient, living plushies]] who have to keep up the {{Masquerade}} from the [[HumansThroughAlienEyes "tramplers"]].
* ''TabletopGame/{{KULT}}'' mentions a ChildProdigy which sometimes gets useful advice from his Teddy (given the background of ''KULT'', this is probably not ConsultingMisterPuppet, but more CreepyDoll).

* The [[Toys/{{Bionicle}} Matoran]] exist. There used to be plushie avatars of them on [[http://www.bzpower.com BZPower]]. Don't know if the plushies still exist though, that was a long time ago.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Some ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' characters are available in SuperDeformed plushie form, including the series' resident EldritchAbomination, the Shadow Heartless. Even ''[[BigBad Xemnas]]'' has his own plushie.
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'': Fan-[[http://eitanya.deviantart.com/art/Mass-Effect-Garrus-plushie-186576225 made]] Garrus plushies!
* After many unofficial plushie companion cubes from ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' (proving the notion of the CompanionCube trope), Creator/{{Valve|Software}} finally released official ones.
** It was likely fan made (though you wouldn't be able to tell), but a plush turret has been [[http://picasaweb.google.com/frambooz/PortalTurret#5151612046806076946 seen]].
** [[http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/e71c/ ThinkGeek has a Portal turret plush]].
* Also from Valve, [[VideoGame/HalfLife Headcrab]] plushies.
** And, in case you crave a little added realism, ''hats''.
** And [[http://store.valvesoftware.com/product.php?i=S0201 BOOOOOOOOOOMER!]]
* And for ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'', Valve presented the [[http://www.teamfortress.com/post.php?id=4558&p=2 sticky bomb plushie]].
** In addition, several in-game examples exist: a teddy bear with a hard hat, overalls, and smoked goggles for the Engineer; a plush Medic for the Heavy and Soldier; an enemy-team-colored Spy voodoo doll for the Engineer; and a pair of [[GoodAngelBadAngel shoulder angels]] for the Pyro.
** Scout, Soldier, and Pyro are being made into plushies as we speak. [[http://kotaku.com/5884494/valve-toys-half+life-toys-tf2-toys-get-a-look-at-them-right-here/gallery/1 Check out the prototype versions here]]. There's also a plushie of Archimedes, The Medic's pet dove. [[http://store.valvesoftware.com/product.php?i=S0240 Isn't he cute, all covered in blood like that?]]
* ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet'' is a little bit different about its plushies. See, you play as a Sackboy/girl, who is a living, customizable, and completely adorable plushie. {{Defictionalization}} ahoy!
** Then there was a real plushie on Think Geek, until it sold out and was removed.
* ''VideoGame/RaidouKuzunohaVsKingAbaddon'' comes with a plushie of Raiho, the adorable (and very popular) fourth-wall-breaking BonusBoss of [[VideoGame/RaidouKuzunohaVsTheSoullessArmy the first game]], as a preorder bonus. Fans are so excited about this plushie that many people have joked that it's "a plushie that comes with a free game" rather than the other way around.
** Plushie Raiho is also limited to the first print of the game. The deluxe packages are numbered, and Atlus won't reveal how many there are (though enthusiastic buyers have confirmed that there are over 40 thousand in circulation). It also won't be sold separately.
* There are plushies of Teddie from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''.
** Are they made from 100% natural Teddie fur?
** There have been plushies of Izanagi and Jiraiya as well. They're cute! ...in a weird way.
* ''[[VideoGame/LunarEternalBlue Lunar 2: Eternal Blue Complete]]'' came with a Ghaleon punching puppet as a preorder bonus.
** Creator/WorkingDesigns planned to release a [[UsefulNotes/MicrosoftWindows Windows]] version of ''[[VideoGame/LunarTheSilverStar Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete]]'' with a Dragonmaster Alex punching puppet, but the game was canceled and they were never produced.
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', Lulu attacks with plushies. Most certainly a ShoutOut to the plushies of the characters.
** Auron [[http://plushie-pandemonium.deviantart.com/art/Auron-Plush-96797671 plushie!]]
* Aww [[http://www.amazon.com/Final-Fantasy-VII-Children-Sephiroth/dp/B000XYFB6Q plush Sephiroth]], you're so ''cute''! You're gonna grow up big and strong and handsome!
* ''VideoGame/GuildWars'' fans can now [[http://www.arena.net/blog/introducing-the-guild-wars-2-charr-plush purchase a limited edition Charr plushie]] in anticipation for ''VideoGame/GuildWars2''!
* [[http://pics.livejournal.com/saltnester/pic/00057hpd Li'l]] [[VideoGame/SilentHill2 Pyramid Head]].
* You will kneel before the might of [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI Vana'deil's]] [[http://ssl.square-enix-shop.com/usa/detail.php?id=109 baby Chocobos!]]
* Everyone from ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown 2'' has the ability to turn into immobile small plushie versions of themselves, complete with a keychain.
* In some ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' games, you can buy plushies in-game to decorate your character's bedroom/secret base. They have plushies for some of the most unlikely of Pokémon, such as Duskull.
** This has extended to in-website purchases (using berries) and monthly giveaways on the Dream World website.
** [[http://www.hobbyvalley.com/poke/pokeimg/pdshadowlugia.jpg They actually combined]] the regular cuteness of plushies with the Pokémon being SuperDeformed. So much {{squee}}.
*** As a quick search on Amazon.com can show, Japan keeps all the good ones (usually from Pokémon Center).
*** America has received some of these hopelessly cute plushies under the name [[PunnyName "Pokédolls"]].
* ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' traditionally gives out plushies for [[PreOrderBonus preorders]], traditionally of farm animals or pets available in the game itself (examples include dogs, chickens, sheep, pigs, ducks, pandas, and for the series' 25th anniversary, extra-sized cows). With the split between translator Natsume and developer Marvelous, both successor series in Western markets (Natsume-developed VideoGame/HarvestMoon and Marvelous-developed Story of Seasons) are now offering their own preorder plushies.
* In-game in ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'', Mr. Mew is both an [[InfinityPlusOneSword infinity plus one plushie]] and an [[ImprobableWeaponUser improbable weapon.]]
* Some fans of ''VideoGame/StarCraft'' made a [[http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=55148 Reaver plushie]].
* There are numerous Yogg-Saron plushies made by fans who took a liking to him. Yogg-Saron does seem to have an odd kind of popularity among ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' players.
* The Cacodemon from ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' has had two notable plushies made in its honour, namely [[http://doom.wikia.com/wiki/Hissy Hissy]] and [[http://ultravioletbat.deviantart.com/art/Pixel-the-Cacodemon-97594332 Pixel]].
* A worrying trend, and a popular fan-project (likely due to the simple design of the character), among fans of ''VideoGame/YumeNikki'' is to make plushies of [[EldritchAbomination Ub]][[HellIsThatNoise o]][[ScareChord a]]. Nothing quite like cuddling with an eldritch terror.
* SuperMarioBros plushies. Also Peach, Bowser, Yoshi, Koopas, Shy Guys, Goombas, [[OverlyLongGag Boos]]... Just run a search on Amazon for them.
* [[UpToEleven What's cuter than Kirby?]] [[TastesLikeDiabetes Kirby Plusies!]] [[http://www.toysnjoys.com/kirby/kirby_summeradven_plush.jpg]] [[http://nextlevelgamex.com/wordpress/wp-contnet/uploads/2010/06/DSCN0454.jpg]]. Also [[http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41rBNA%2BKcNL._SL500_AA300_.jpg Meta Knight]], [[http://www.kirbysrainbowresort.net/info/merchandise/ebay_lost2.gif King Dedede]], [[http://www.videogamemm.com/d/1852-3/Waddle+Doo.JPG Waddle Dee]], even ''Zero [[http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=§ion=&q=zero+two+plush#/d2859be Two]]'' get treatment as well.
* There are possibly hundreds of SonicTheHedgehog plushies out there. Most notable are the plushies of characters such as Bean and Bark, who haven't been seen in over a decade, plushies of non-animal characters, like Metal Sonic and Gamma, plushes of non-game characters, plush [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Chao]], and life size plushies of Sonic. There are even one or two of Dr. Eggman. Disappointingly there isn't an official {{defictionalization}} of the in game plushie of the Tails Doll from VideoGame/SonicR.
** Many of the ones that haven't been officially made have been done by fans, including the {{defictionaliz|ation}}ed Tails Doll.
** There's also [[http://sonicgear.org/ a site dedicated to Sonic stuff, including plushies]]
** Doesn't a plush Tails (which does exist) constitute as a Tails doll?
* There are a vast amount of ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' plushies out there.
* There are also VideoGame/AngryBirds plushies as well, of every bird and pig in the game! [[http://shop.angrybirds.com/us/toys/plush-toys.html]]
* Inverted with ''VideoGame/DieAnstalt'' - the Flash game is the more recognizable aspect, but the game was created to go with its corresponding plushies, not vice versa.
* VideoGame/AnimalCrossing - there is basically a plush of most, if not all, of the characters in the game, including your neighbors and even your avatar. There's even a jumbo Isabelle plush being made- Japan only unless you're willing to go the import route, of course.
* ''VideoGame/DewysAdventure'' came with a plushie of the main character for those who preordered the game. Said main character was ''already'' sickeningly adorable, but the plushie just made it more so.
* The SpecialLimitedCollectorsEdition of ''VideoGame/NiNoKuni'' for the [=PS3=] came with a plushie of Drippy. Appropriately enough, because he was [[SleepModeSize trapped in the form of a plush doll]] in the beginning of the game (though the plushie itself resembles his "real" form).
* These are known as "norndolls" in the ''VideoGame/{{Creatures}}'' fandom. Certain editions of ''Creatures 2'' came with variously colored plush norndolls, but many fans have also made their own, and it was a popular craze within the fandom for a while.
* Both ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' games have this InUniverse: on the first game's Android version, you can buy plushie versions of Bonnie, Chica, and Freddy to sit on your desk. The second game has those same plushies at the Prize Counter, and [[spoiler: if you beat one of the custom nights, you can unlock not only those plushies, but toys/plushies of some of the new animatronics as well.]]
** This trope is also used in [[VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys4 the fourth game]], to [[ZigZaggingTrope varying]] degrees. Playing it straight is the plushies the protagonist owns, who he refers to as "[his] only friends". In fact, the Fredbear plush tries to help him out in between nights. Inverting it is Plushtrap, who can, ''and will'', jumpscare you.
* Virus plushies make an appearance in ''VisualNovel/BrassRestoration''. [[TokenMiniMoe Kouri]] is a big fan, and [[LyricalDissonance cheerfully sings]] their ''theme song'': "We hurt people's bodies, eat their lives, and we go on~"
* ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'': What's cuter than an Inkling? A plushie Inkling, of course! And plushie squids, and plushie [[IdolSinger Callies and Maries]], and...
* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}} has plushies of most of the main cast, but the official ones from Fangamer.com have some pretty adorable ones of Toriel, Sans, Papyrus, and the Tem shop owner.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' has plushies among other merchandise; it helps that Bun-Bun and Kiki already resemble plushies more than they do real animals. A Kiki plushy has even [[http://www.sluggy.com/daily.php?date=090105 been written into the story]].
* Plushies are a RunningGag in ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'' and its related stories. And yes, they did make plushie versions of two of the characters, and one of the artists owns a "demon plushie" that has appeared [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?check=1&order=chapters&overview=1&chibi=1&cover=1&page=1&extra=1&id=1086 a few times]].
* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0653.html Tsukiko owns a plushie]] '''[[BigBad Xykon]]'''.
* There are plushies of the [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Jinxlets]] from ''Webcomic/{{Starslip}}'' available. They're too cute to be legal.
* ''[[http://badgods.com/cutestore.html Huge plush Charles Bronson!]]''
* For a limited time, there was a plushy of Joyce from ''Webcomic/ItsWalky''.
* ''Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily'' has the [[http://brawlinthefamily.com/images/dollpic02.jpg Dededoll]], {{defictionaliz|ation}}ed after just 2 appearances in the comic. It's that cute.
* ''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}'' has a plushy Big Ears, complete with Axe. This has led to some fan speculation as to what a plushy Kore would be like.
* ''Webcomic/{{Erfworld}}'' has a [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience wide range]] of dwagon plushies. They're cute, just like [[CrapsaccharineWorld the vicious croaking machines]] depicted in the comic.
* ''Webcomic/TheFuzzyFive'' started off with plushies and then became a pretty good webcomic.
* ''Webcomic/{{Bomango}}'': In [[http://vanheist.deviantart.com/art/laughter-in-the-dollhouse-166716595?q=gallery%3AVanHeist%2F3749890&qo=154 a (fake) ad]] for [[TheMerch plushies]], [[PolarOppositeTwins Didi and Gogo]] are given talking plushies based off of themselves. And they revel a lot embarrassing information about them. Some of which is of a sexually explicit nature. Didi is not pleased.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* On ''{{Website/Neopets}}'' there were plushie versions of the paint brushes. There is even a paint brush that turns neopets into plushies. It is very expensive. Also just about everything and everyone in Neopets, from the RealLife founders, to various kinds of food both in the real world and on the site.
* ''WebVideo/PotterPuppetPals''
* Creator/LittleKuriboh of ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' likes to have a Yami plushie pretend to be Creator/DanGreen, and play him as a grown up 10-year-old, including thinking GirlsHaveCooties.
* JustForFun/TheWarOfTheAbridgedSeriesCreators features loads of plushies for the respective shows.
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' Youtube Spoof: Avatar The Last Puppetbender
* Even ''WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation'' has gotten in on this, with [[http://www.splitreason.com/productdetail.php?id=789 plush versions of the black imps]].
* And finally, for all you NewMedia creators out there who want to get in on the game, [[http://www.customplush.com CustomPlush.com]] is here to serve all your squeezable [[TheMerch Merch]] needs! They require a minimum run of 500 units, so this is definitely for creators, not fans.
* You can collect plushies of just about anything in Website/{{Subeta}}. Pets, pies, poop (no seriously), potions...
* ''Website/AlternateHistoryDotCom'' once started the Sealion World Tour (still going on in 2010). The members send a plush sealion named [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Sealion]] from one member to another, who'll take pictures and post them on the forum. At the moment, Sealion has already visited three continents (North America, Europe, Asia) and about a dozen different countries. And South America is where he is now.
* BGroup is currently collecting donations to fund the creation of a talking plush version of the demonic main character of their Reincarnation series.
* ''WebAnimation/DSBTInsaniT'': Bear is a living a teddy bear.
** Dave gets a giant gorilla plushie and Whitney gets a snow leopard plushie as a prize at the end of [='VRcade'=]
* The first ''Webanimation/{{RWBY}}'' plush was a Pyrrha whose unflattering looks becoming a meme - creators Creator/RoosterTeeth fired some of them out of a hot dog cannon during a convention, and after a joke on the plush during a ''Webanimation/{{RWBY Chibi}}'' episode, [[https://store.roosterteeth.com/products/rwby-pyrrha-12-plush its name on the store is "The Great One"]]. (''Chibi'' itself also inspired mini plushies for the four protagonists and one for Ruby's dog Zwei)
* Rooster Teeth also made plushies out of Caboose from ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', ORF from ''Webanimation/XRayAndVav'' and the platypus from ''Webanimation/CampCamp''.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* There have been numerous ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' plushies, but plushie-sized figurines of Monterey Jack and Gadget have only ever been made once. These figurines made by Applause aren't even true plushies with their vinyl heads and paws, and Gadget doesn't contain a square inch of plush at all; nevertheless, it's known as "the Gadget plushie". But since these figurines have ceased to be manufactured long ago, and since there isn't any alternative, it is her who is the most expensive by far. Chip and Dale as Rescue Rangers can still be acquired as true plushies at every Disney theme park, though.
* In-universe, we see a binome with a Guardian Bob plushie in one of the later seasons of ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot''.
* Another in-universe example: Heloise on ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'' has several Jimmy plushies as part of her StalkerShrine.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyG3'' has some, mostly made by companies sub-licensed by Hasbro themselves, then sold under Hasbro's own name.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has a number of plushies, and before there were very many, there were already many fans capable of making plushies of their own. While the fans' plushies are of course a whole lot more show accurate, and while they're based on several variations of characters ranging from the [[HoldYourHippogriffs Mane Six]] to background ponies and even Creator/LaurenFaust's pony avatar herself, they're also handmade one-of-a-kind pieces, and if they're sold, it's for very high prices. One fan is famous for making high-quality plushies of the main characters in their Gala dresses which include embroidered eyes and cutie marks and which sell for four-digit prices.
** In fact, while embroidered eyes and cutie marks have started in the fandom, as have manes and tails show-accurately modeled in one piece, this has been pretty much taken over by the commercial plushie making companies.
** Typical from merchandising overload, there's no less than 4 companies making officially licensed [=FiM=] plushes (Funrise, Nici, Build-A-Bear Workshop and Aurora). There may be more. The first wave of plushes were also made by companies sub-licensed through Hasbro and sold under Hasbro's own name.
** At larger German brony events including the [=GalaCon=] convention, so-called "[=PlushieCons=]" are becoming a tradition. They're organized gatherings of usually dozens upon dozens of pony plushies, both commercial and fan-made, which are put on display together in a room or hall. Comparatively many bronies attend these events in company of at least one plushie anyway, so they can check them in early and get them back the next day after [=PlushieCon=].
** "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E3CastleSweetCastle Castle Sweet Castle]]" confirmed fan theories that Spike has his own Rarity plushie.
* Plushies of the main six from ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' were made back in 1998-2001 with two sets. One was made by Creator/{{Mattel}} in 1998, and were sold at Toys "R" Us, K.B. Toys, Target, and Walmart, among others. Another set was made by Disney Consumer Products in 1999 and were only sold at The Disney Store (and some stores in the Disney Parks). The differences between the two were that the Mattel ones had vinyl heads, which the Disney ones didn't and were all plush, and that The Disney Store ones were ''much'' more expensive.
* Like ''Recess'' above, the Disney version of ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'' also had two sets of plushies; one by Creator/{{Mattel}} and one by Disney Consumer Products. The only characters made were Doug, Patti, Skeeter, and Porkchop. Herman from ''Doug's 1st Movie'' was also sold at Walmart for a little while.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' included a hand-puppet of Slimer and a large plushie of the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man (inevitable, really) among its figurines, vehicles, and role-play props.
* There's probably dozens of ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' plush that exist at the moment, and while most are Beanie Babies, there are some made by Mattel, Nanco, Build a Bear, Fisher Price, Jakks Pacific, and Just Play that were (or are currently), on shelves in local toy stores.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'', each of the babies has a favorite stuffed animal. Tommy has a lion named Henry, Chuckie has a bear named Wawa and Kimi has Superthing. There were also stuffed dolls of the babies themselves as well as Reptar, including some that had special functions like talking or color changing in water.
* ''WesternAnimation/MagicAdventuresOfMumfie'' had stuffed animals that are rather hard to find of Mumfie, Scarecrow and Pinkey. Mumfie was made in three sizes, Pinkey was made in two sizes and Scarecrow was made in just one size. Given that the original source material of the cartoon was about a stuffed elephant who was sent to the human world, this would be considered a {{Defictionalization}}.
* The ''WesternAnimation/{{VeggieTales}}'' silly song "Endangered Love" shows Larry watching the titular sitcom featured in the song with a plush of his favorite character, Barbara Manatee.

* Build-a-Bear shops allow you to choose a toy and help to stuff it yourself. Several other, smaller companies do this as well.
* [[http://www.squishable.com/ Squishables]] are plush toys with a distinct round-bodied design. Animals available range from very common (such as kittens and unicorns) to creatures that can be hard to find in plush form (like jellyfish and sparrows), and fans can vote for which designs will be produced next.

[[folder:Real Life]]
* [[http://www.feltcuisine.com/ Food in felt plush form.]] Japan has also made plushies of the ideal shape of poo.
** Website/{{Subeta}} have heavily parodied both situations as items. When you get a taco beanbag, and a ham plushie, it's just because they ''love'' this trope.
* Airbus A380s exist. You can buy plushies of Singapore Airlines A380s aboard Singapore Airlines flights.
* Anybody want plush Toys/GiantMicrobes? You can get them [[http://www.giantmicrobes.com/ here]]! They even have [[http://www.giantmicrobes.com/us/main/corporeals/ plush sperm and egg cells]] [[TertiarySexualCharacteristics wearing blue and pink bows]], [[PinkGirlBlueBoy respectively.]]

Careful about [[http://www.thinkgeek.com/geektoys/plush/7cc6/ this one]], folks; he'll bite your ankles off! And be even more careful of [[http://www.thinkgeek.com/geektoys/plush/778d/ this one]]... looks pretty vicious, doesn't it? If only they made a plush Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch... oh wait... [[http://www.amazon.com/Python-Toy-Vault-Grenade-Antioch/dp/B000GTNPP2 THEY DO]]!!
** Speaking of microbial plushies, yes, there are ''Manga/{{Moyashimon}}'' [[http://www.clockworkmachina.com/?p=451 plushies]].
* The Unemployed Philosopher's Guild presents...[[http://www.philosophersguild.com/index.lasso?page_mode=Home&category=Little%20Thinker Little Thinkers]]. Who ''wouldn't'' want a [[Creator/FriedrichNietzsche Nietszche]] doll?
* Gamestop has now released a plushie of their bunny mascot. It even has a voice chip in it.
* Any animal or popular fictional creature can have a plushie. They donít have to be soft and fluffy in real life, like a mammal.
** Plushies of marine animals also exist, including octopuses, orcas, and ''sharks''. Just do a google search to see for yourself.
** There are even plushies of reptiles. [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent Go Figure.]] The same goes for amphibians and bugs.
* There are plushies based on the monsters from Lovecraft. Evil has never looked so cute.
* Way back in the '80s and 90s, most of the major stores that had mascots usually sold plushies. For example, a (long-defunct) hardware store called "Handy Andy" once sold 12"-tall dolls of Andy himself. Also, at some point in the mid-90s, Empire Carpet [[note]]now Empire Today[[/note]] offered a plush version of the Empire Carpet Man as a call/mail-in premium!
* Several 99 p and Dollar type stores sell plush vehicles for children and sometimes includes things such as a Plush Abrams style MAIN BATTLE TANK.
