* In ''Literature/RogueStar'', Earth is Andy Quamodian's home, but as far as most of the people he knows and works with are concerned, it's "Planet 3, Star 7718, Sector Z-989-Q, Galaxy 5."

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', each of the Crystal Gems have their own personal motivations regarding Earth-- Rose Quartz viewed the planet's inhabitants as unique (and thus worth protecting), Pearl fought out of devotion to Rose and her ideals, Garnet [[spoiler:fought to make a home free from the Gem FantasticCasteSystem and the prejudices therein]], and Amethyst [[spoiler:was born on the planet, making it the only home she knows]]. On an interplanetary scale, however, Earth itself is barely a blip on the radar, and each of the [[spoiler:Homeworld Gems]] introduced have been dismissive or derisive of it. However, Earth being largely insignificant does ''not'' mean [[HostileTerraforming wiping out all life on it]] would be justified or defensible, and the Crystal Gems [[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch turning against their own kind]] in order to protect it was the catalyst for the GreatOffscreenWar and everything that's happened since.

However, as more is revealed about the Gems' history with the planet, and its role at the center of a GreatOffscreenWar, Earth being largely insignificant does ''not'' mean [[HostileTerraforming wiping turns out all life on it]] would to be justified or defensible, and ''much'' more significant in the Crystal Gems [[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch turning against their own kind]] in order to protect grand scheme of things than it was the catalyst for the GreatOffscreenWar and everything that's happened since.first appears.

* In ''TheLastStarfighter'', Earth is an underdeveloped backwater notable mainly for being neutral in the war between the Star League and the Kodan Armada and off-limits for mercenary Starfighter recruiters. That is, until Alex Rogan beat a certain video game...

* In ''{{Manga/Gantz}}'' the aliens that save Earth from another alien race say this, along with the fact that human life is meaningless. Destruction of life is simply 'matter being reshaped.' Even when the humans try to [[ShutUpHannibal point out that the alien took a vested interest in Earth]], it simply says not to read too much into it.

--->'''Pram:''' "There is of course more than one universe. In one such world, in the corner of some backwater galaxy humans rule over a senseless planet. However, that's about as important as a speck of dust in this pluralistic cosmos."

* In ''Manga/DragonBallZ'', Earth is considered a "weak" planet by Saiyans, one that would be suitable for their young to conquer. In a prequel manga, Bardock sends his son Kakarot (who would grow up to be Goku) to Earth in the hopes that it would be out of the way enough that he would escape Frieza's detection.

* ''TheChroniclesOfNarnia'': Our entire ''universe'' is insignificant and little, compared with all the others in the Wood Between The Worlds. Very little of the action takes place in our universe--most takes place in Narnia. And [[strike:Heaven]] Aslan's Country has this effect on ''any'' universe, seeing as it contains perfect versions of all of them.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'' the Evronians, who are currently trying to invade Earth, view it as so insignificant that the members of the Imperial Council have problem recalling its name. And the ''only'' reason they even bothered learning it is a combination of Earth being scheduled to have its oceans being used to ''cool off the engines of their PlanetSpaceship'' and Earthling being relatively tough to conquer (enough they can't just bulldoze in).
** Later {{Subverted}}: the Evronians are {{Emotion Eater}}s who [[PoweredByAForsakenChild fuel most of their technology with stolen emotions]] with a process that drains the victim completely and forever, but Earthlings are so emotionally rich that a single shot of their Evronguns often isn't enough and they can recover... [[BlessedWithSuck Meaning that humanity is an unending banquet and the possible solution to Evron's impending energy crisis]]. The Imperial Council ''still'' has trouble remembering the name.

* ''ComicBook/ScoobyDooTeamUp'': Moltar doesn't expect Space Ghost to "find any useful help on a backward mudball like Earth!". Space Ghost even uses the word "primitives" to describe Earthlings.
