* Creator/EdmondHamilton gives us [[http://thenostalgialeague.com/olmag/hamilton-thundering-worlds.html Thundering Worlds]], in which every planet in the solar system is outfitted with nuclear rockets and flown to another solar system to escape our dying sun. Of course, then they pass by some [[OhCrap hostile aliens and give them the same idea...]]

* In Creator/LarryNiven's ''Literature/KnownSpace'' series, the Pierson's Puppeteers are a race of cowards, and the only Puppeteers humans have met are insane-- because no sane Puppeteer would trust his life to something so fragile as a spaceship. So when they discover a massive wave of radiation approaching their home system, they leave it behind... but take their planets with them. They put them in orbit around each other (see [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Klemperer_rosette Klemperer Rosette]] on TheOtherWiki) and accelerated them to just under lightspeed, heading out of the galaxy. Because humans have faster than light starships (which Puppeteers are too sane to use), they expect humans to greet them at their destination, the Clouds of Magellan.

* The [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Evronians]] from ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'' '''love''' this trope:
** At some point in the past they took their homeworld and '' turned it into a [[CrazyAwesome spaceship]]''. [[AllThereInTheManual Never appeared on page and is only mentioned in the inserts]], but may have been destroyed off-screen by [[PhysicalGoddess Xadhoom]] (the flashback showing her destroying one such place shows one that doesn't exactly look like the one we saw her destroy on-page).
** Zotnam's mothership is relatively small, only ''500 km long and tall''. Fate of this one unknown.
** The "Xadhoom's Trilogy" provides a third, described the size of a small planet. It's ultimately wrecked by Xadhoom and [[SlaveLiberation a Coolflame revolt]] and explodes.
** The first relaunch story, "Might and Power", shows that the Evronians in the BadFuture did it again: they transformed another planet in a spaceship, in this case [[spoiler: Earth]]. It took them two hundred years.
** A fifth shows up in "Chronicle of a Return", surprising Paperinik because he thought they only had one. Much to his horror, the Evronians there explain him that [[spoiler:they do it ''regularly'': whenever the population of one grows too much they build one or turn a planet into one, divide their population in two, and then the two spaceship go their separate ways, ready to repeat the process when the population grows too much again]].

* ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse stories from Italy have more than a few:
** The first to appear is Pacificus, Reginella's homeworld. It doesn't have full control over its course, but can change speed and manouver on a number of pre-decided routes.
** The second is Vampirione. It has better manouvering abilities than Pacificus but is slower, as shown when its inhabitants chase Pacificus to try and [[HordeOfAlienLocusts steal all its resources]].

Aliens come to recruit humanity, who have been trapped on earth after being kicked out of Galactic society for fighting. After they agree, the entire planet follows them, bringing the moon along with it.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Literature/MyTeacherIsAnAlien'' series has a ship called the ''New Jersey,'' so called because it's ''the size'' of New Jersey. (It's actually an alien spaceship, but christened by a fan of Earth.) Its inhabitants use {{Teleporters and Transporters}} to get around rather than walk hundreds of miles from one place to another.
