* ArthurCClarke's ''ChildhoodsEnd'' briefly visits a planet that orbits ''eight'' stars. This gives it an utterly bizarre orbit in which every moment brings a unique arrangement of planet and stars.

* In Metru Nui, of the {{Bionicle}} franchise, there are two suns. [[spoiler: They're actually the eyes of the robot Mata Nui, and Metru Nui is his brain. The matoran are maintenance systems, comparable in size to cells in the human body. When the suns "go out" is when Makuta put Mata Nui "to sleep".]]

* The eponymous stars of ''TheFiveStarStories'' may or may not be a quintary star system, though the English translation inconsistently renders it as either [[SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale "star cluster", which usually have thousands of stars, or the patently absurd "galaxy"]]. At any rate they're far enough apart that you usually can't see them from each other's planets during daytime.

* Norfolk in Peter F. Hamilton's ''NightsDawnTrilogy'' orbits the primary star of a binary system, lending a unique system involving "Duke day" (full white sunlight from the primary, Duke), "Duchess night" (red sunlight from the secondary, Duchess) and true night for the portions hidden from both stars. Duke day lasts for the same time all the time (at least at the equator), but Duchess night and true night pass between complete Duchess night and complete true night depending on the planet's position around its orbit.
