* Creator/MakotoShinkai has used shots of a full moon bisected by power lines as symbolism for the melancholy and disconnectedness of his characters, particularly in ''Anime/FiveCentimetersPerSecond'' and ''Anime/YourName''.

* The second ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' OVA has the ending theme "The Lonely Moon", which talks about a person longing for their loved one in their time apart, comparing each other to the Earth and the Moon. The ending credits even has Ryo-Ohki looking longingly at the moon.

* ''{{Lunar}}'' has a funny variation on this. Throughout the series, there's a celestial body that unquestionably fills the same role as the moon. It's distant, cold, and lifeless, but nevertheless always shining through the night and a source of hope and wonder. It's present in every night scene, most memorably shining behind Luna during [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROt6hC7WWio Wind's Nocturne]], as well as playing a massive role in the plot of ''VideoGame/LunarEternalBlue'' and being the focus of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fRm_PJQe3p8 the Eternal Blue Theme]]. So, what's the twist? It's not a moon at all. The characters are ''living'' on its moon, called Lunar or the Silver Star, while gazing up towards the frozen planet it orbits, the Blue Star. One more thing - depending on the shot, you can see certain land formations on the Blue Star. Those include [[EarthAllAlong Africa]].

%%* In ''Film/FieldOfDreams''.
* In ''Film/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone'', after he arrives in Hogwarts and everyone is in bed, Harry's up looking out his window at the moon. It fits into the "melancholy yet hopeful" category as it marks the beginning of a new life for him, yet it's a somewhat sad scene because of the backstory with his parents.
* Sméagol fishing in the waterfall in ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings: The Two Towers'' has a curious use of the moon. Sméagol, who has found a measure of redemption helping Frodo and even banishing [[GollumMadeMeDoIt Gollum]], is "betrayed" by Frodo under Faramir's threat of killing Sméagol.

* ''Anime/Berserk2016'': Apart from its obvious connection with the supernatural and Guts' torment, the moon retains some of its symbolism from the Golden Age as a lonely and beautiful thing that Guts would stare at when he was being introspective, and it features prominently in the end credits sequence.
