* 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]].

* 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.

**Possibly the most extreme examples: Klongheim and Parsfon, the fully FTL-capable homes of rival robot civilizations traveling the universe in search of their rightful masters, with dimensions measured in [[UpToEleven light-months]]. It's strongly suggested that these got their start as remnants of some cosmic disaster or other that weren't so much built as colonized.

** Although the troper writing this is not that far into the series himself, he has heard that there are books with ships whose length is measured in [[UpToEleven LIGHTMONTHS]]!
