Now if a mugger came up to me in a dark alley and, after ramming a gun into my ribs, asked me to rattle off as many plant based monsters from fiction that I could…
Well, I’d probably be finishing this post posthumously.
So there’s that classic one from Little Shop of Horrors and then I sadly start to draw a blank. Okay, well don’t fret. Wikipedia is here to the rescue (you may have to weed through them to find the monsters, pardon the pun ;). I’m not sure how long it took to collect this impressive list but somebody gave up their precious time watching Downton Abbey to make it. So enjoy!
A few stand outs:
- Stinky: a plant from the children’s TV series Sesame Street
- Nirnroot: a plant from the game Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, makes a sound somewhat akin to chimes and emits a white glow.
- Heart’s Desire: a flower which grants your heart’s desire when ingested, from the My Little Pony TV series (okay, a kids version of Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker anyone?!)
