* Mongo's moons in ''Film/FlashGordon''. The ones we see aren't round, Arboria is bowl-shaped with everything on "top" of it and the Hawk Men live in a flying fortress.

Federation. It's small enough Morty can throw a frisbee across the surface and catch it from the other side with some practice, and its circumference is about the size of a normal neighborhood.

An inhabitable planet that is far smaller than astronomically possible, often less than a few functional miles in diameter. As a general rule, a Baby Planet is small enough that you can see its curvature even on the surface. In RealLife, a body this small would be called an asteroid or be a natural satellite orbiting a planet, and would usually be incapable of supporting an atmosphere (of useful density at a life-supporting temperature), and would probably not even be spherical, but in fiction, these often sport [[AllPlanetsAreEarthLike an entire ecosystem]] awkwardly compressed into the minute available space.

** The band's later album "Yessongs" shows the glider guiding a fragment of the baby planet through space, where it lands in the ocean of a new, full-size world.

* ''VideoGame/KerbalSpaceProgram'' and its various analogues for various real life Solar System bodies are scaled down from reality by a factor of ten. They still have approximately the same gravity, however, meaning either the planets are denser than any known substance, or that the Kerbal-verse has an increased constant of gravitation. Kerbin in particular, despite being only 600km in radius, still manages a very Earth-like 9.81 meters per second per second and a life-supporting atmosphere. For those that want additional challenge, [[GameMod Real Solar System]] scales the planets, moons, and star back up to real-world sizes.

* A [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] ''Comicbook/{{Superboy}}'' story had Clark Kent travel to a small asteroid/planet, where he found someone with powers similar to his own. At the time, the preferred explanation for Superman's powers was that Krypton was larger than Earth, so the native race [[HeavyWorlder evolved to counteract the more powerful gravity]]. The boy on the asteroid, it turned out, was from Earth, so on his little world he got to have some of the same benefits Superboy did. The native races of all 3 ecosystems evolved to be [[HumanAliens identical in size and shape]]. . .
