* In ''[[VideoGame/SonicAdventureSeries Sonic Adventure 2]]'', Dr. Eggman demonstrates the power of his orbital not-fully-powered-up Eclipse Cannon, which he is using to hold the world hostage, by blowing up a huge chunk of the moon. The moon appears perfectly fine in all later games, though (most notably ''[[VideoGame/SonicAdvanceTrilogy Sonic Advance]]'', in which the final level takes place there).

* The novelisation of ''Series/RedDwarf'' mentions advertisers beginning to deface entire ''constellations'' with slogans visible from Earth. By ''[[StarKilling artificially inducing supernovas]]''. Just to sell Coca-Cola. (This may or may not be a ShoutOut to the above Arthur C. Clarke short story.)

** Sometimes attributed to Carl Friedrich Gauss, one [[OlderThanRadio early proposal]] to send a message to Mars involved growing enormous fields of wheat and lines made of pine trees in the Siberian tundra to demonstrate the Pythagorean Theorem.

* In the SilverAge Comicbook/{{Superman}} story "The Last Days of Superman", Superman believed he was dying from a Kryptonian virus, and among the preparations he made for his death was using his heat vision to write "Do good to others and any man can be a Superman. [signed] Superman (Clark Kent)" on the surface of the moon. When it turned out (surprise surprise) that he wasn't going to die after all, Supergirl and Krypto removed his secret identity from the message; the rest of it, however, was apparently there to stay.

* TruthInTelevision, sort of, for the Moon. Very early on its history it was covered by a magma ocean that solidified and formed the lunar crust, just to be pockmarked by the craters formed by the countless impacts of asteroids and comets suffered by the Moon. Hundreds of millions of years later, lavas would emerge from the lunar interior and solidify forming the lunar seas giving the Moon the aspect it has from Earth, that unless [[DefaceOfTheMoon we, or someone else, mess with it]] will very likely keep as long as it exists.

* Inverted in the Garth Ennis comic ''{{Preacher}}'', where Jesse Custer meets a man who was kicked out of NASA and devoted the rest of his life to blasting the words 'fuck you' into the Arizona desert in letters large enough to be seen from space.

** Later, The Tick goes to the moon on a mission to carefully plant explosives so that the CHA will be removed...and botches it, of course. The resulting explosion causes everyone to believe he's dead, and only the C is removed--so the moon's lettering now reads "HA". Later that episode Omnipotus (a parody of [[MarvelComics Marvel's]] Galactus) ''takes a bite out of'' the moon (after The Tick gives him a PatrickStewartSpeech to protect Earth). The half-eaten, scarred moon is then seen regularly throughout the series.

* A picture in the third installment in the ''Being One'' flash game series, shows Earth surrounded by an asteroid belt left over from the "Moon impact of 2027", complete with the Moon having huge chunks blown out around the edges.
** The game that follows - aptly named "Moonrise" - involves the space station you're on coming into view of the moon from Earth orbit, causing werewolves to spring up inside the base.
