* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has had one or two in its 50-year history. First, the Daleks ''attempted'' it in "The Dalek Invasion of Earth," but failed. The second, and somewhat more successful of these, was Zanak from "The Pirate Planet," a hollowed-out planet with massive transmat engines...it could materialize around another planet and capture ''everything'' from it, leaving behind a tiny husk, which its captain could collect as a trophy.
** The TARDIS itself probably is this. Just not on the outside.

** The TARDIS itself probably is this. Just this, [[BiggerOnTheInside just not on the outside.]] Its exact inner size is left deliberately unclear, but the Doctor one claimed that its true weight would crack the surface of the Earth.

* VideoGame/{{Destiny}} fulfills this trope with Oryx's [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/destinypedia/images/9/9f/Art_of_destiny_33.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20150712055338 Dreadnaught]]: essentially a small pocket universe everted into realspace, filling the interior of a spaceship that some rough math places at several thousand miles long. The Hive put all that [[http://mp1st.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/dreadnaught_e_ingame.jpg extra space]] to [[https://www.bungie.net/pubassets/41354/dreadnaught_d_ingame.jpg good use]]. The lore also makes reference to Hive "war-moons": whole moons hollowed out and turned into warships, and implies they're busy doing this to ''our'' moon.

* The Jennerit from ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}'' have a massive moon-sized starship called the Exodus which houses the Sustainment Engine and massive power facilities capable of storing energy from other planets like Tempest the Jennerit throneworld for use in Sustainment. Despite its massive size, Exodus is capable of faster-than-light travel and often moves from planet-to-planet to collect vast amounts of energy to power Sustainment procedures. Many of the Sustained and those worthy of being Sustained live aboard Exodus, though some still reside on Tempest.

* ''WebOriginal/OrionsArm'': Taken UpToEleven with the Leviathan, a ''galaxy'' spaceship. That is to say, it's the approximate mass of an entire galaxy moving under its own power, with an approximate size of 10 light-years. It is believed to consist of a huge number of {{Dyson Sphere}}s connected in a giant net-like configuration. How in the hell someone managed to build something like this, or more importantly, ''why'' someone built something like this, is entirely unknown. Fortunately, since FTL travel is not possible in this 'verse, it'll be around 4 million years before anyone in the Milky Way has to worry about this thing...

* AlanDeanFoster has a literal Spaceship Earth, at the end of the short story: With Friends Like These. 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.

* The closest RealLife equivalent to this trope are [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rogue_planet Rogue planets]], that roam free across interstellar space, be them bodies that formed the same way stars do or planets ejected from a star system. Since we can detect just the largest and youngest ones it's perfectly conceivable that there'd be ''a lot'' of them, down to Earth-size ones or less.

** In ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', Starkiller Base is the Death Star UpToEleven. It's an alpine planet that's been converted into a superweapon, making it many times larger than the Death Star. However, it doesn't move.

However, it doesn't move.move, at least on screen; since it ''eats stars'' to fuel its super-cannon, it was presumably intended to relocate once the system it was in ran out of stars to eat.
