* The {{Wuxia}} film ''Film/TheBellsOfDeath'' offers a live-action example, when the protagonist, an expert swordsman with a high level of ''chi'', uses his interior ''chi'' energy to grab a handful of dead leaves and fling them on a group of enemy mooks. The leaves ends up sticking on the mooks' faces with enough force to rip off their skins.

** In the [[FightingGame fighting game]] [[SpinOff spin-off]] title, [[VideoGame/PokkenTournament Pokken Tournament]], the character Gardevoir has rose petals accompanying many of their attacks, and similar effects in many of their related accessories or titles. This is of note due to the fact that Gardevoir is not Grass-type, but instead dual [[PsychicPowers Psychic]]/[[TheFairFolk Fairy]] type. That being said, the line does learn the Grass-type move Magical Leaf, amongst others.

When a character has super powers (especially the [[PowerGlows glowy variety]]), artists will want to personalize them. After all, seeing twenty lime green {{Battle Aura}}s would make viewers think they're watching a rave, not a MartialArtsAndCrafts CookingDuel. And so it goes that most KiAttacks, {{Deflector Shield}}s, GlowingEyesOfDoom, and sundry visual effects are {{Color Coded|ForYourConvenience}} to the character.

The petals can be from any flower, but commonly, it's [[SomethingAboutARose rose petals]], peach blossoms, or CherryBlossoms (these are a big favorite in Anime). Leaves aren't out of the question either, though using [[CombatTentacles vine]] {{whip|ItGood}}s is not this trope. The attack itself may or may not actually be ''made'' of petals; it could just be a fancy visual aid that disintegrates post attack.[[note]]Which makes you wonder at all the spare energy and work that must have gone into making a generic energy attack look like the picture to the right.[[/note]] That said, most instances of this trope come with [[CallingYourAttacks flower based names]] and they actually do evoke [[GreenThumb power over plants]] in some form.
