* In the ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' epiloque, Carapatians decide to use a big laser to "scape" the moon into a permanent crescent form.

* In the ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' epiloque, Carapatians decide to use a big laser to "scape" the moon into a permanent crescent form. This is probably a reference back to ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth'' when Pickle Inspector accidentally shot the hole out of the crescent.

* One of Creator/LarryNiven's stories, ''[[Literature/KnownSpace The Woman in Del Rey Crater]]'', has a variation not driven by any kind of vanity; highly radioactive waste is stored in a large moon crater, which has had a giant "verboten" sign blasted over it as a warning of the danger.

* The ArthurCClarke short story ''Watch This Space'' (part of a series of short stories talking about a single moon journey) had astronauts releasing gases into the lunar environment to analyze their reactivity when unfiltered sunlight hit them. Somebody sabotaged the chemical release tube so that, instead of being released as an amorphous cloud, they formed the [[spoiler: Coca-Cola]] logo (he isn't explicit about whose logo it was, just that it [[spoiler:had some Cs and Os in it, as well as Ls and As]]). It didn't ruin the experiment (they analyzed the reactions anyway), but the guy was fired. He didn't care, though, because the company was so grateful for the advertising coup that he was pretty much set up for life.

* A giant stone face carved into the side of a tremendous mountain is an essential plot point in Creator/HPLovecraft's ''The Dream-Quest Of Unknown Kadath''. Presumably an example of this trope, as it's carved to resemble one of the Dreamworld's gods.

* In ''{{Warframe}}'' the Moon (also known as Lua) is notably absent from the Earth skyline or the star charts at first. It's mentioned in passing that some people might not even believe it ever existed, or perhaps that it was lost with the fall of the [[{{Precursors}} Orokin Empire]], which used it as the seat of its power. But during the Second Dream questline [[spoiler: not only do you find it, hidden away in AnotherDimension, but also restore it to its normal terrestrial orbit]]. It's quite an impressive sight, too, having massive white and gold Orokin towers sprouting from the surface and connected by huge circumlunar rings, but also [DetonationMoon being ''shattered'' and broken into multiple pieces]] ever since the Old War.
