** And all of these and Mongo appear to be Island Planets floating inside a weird, glowing nebula-like thing with a vortex as an entryway. It's not a conventional solar system as we would know it.

* As in the page quote, the ''{{Franchise/Star Wars}}'' universe is bad for this. There's the desert planet Tattooine, the ice planet Hoth, the swamp planet Dagobah, and a lot of others. Nal Hutta is covered in slimy swamps, Coruscant was built into a single, planet-wide city.

Mustafar is all volcanoes and lava, and the Twi'leks come from a TwilightWorld in tidal lock, where they can live only in the zone between light and dark.

The invaders got ticked off and bombarded the place from orbit, frying it into a desert wasteland.

* [[CityPlanet City Planets (Ecumenopolis)]] -- Urban sprawl has taken over the entire surface of a world. Theoretically possible, but only with extreme technology and/or a constant inflow of resources from off-world. May serve as home base to a culture of PlanetLooters. Often has a population in the trillions. The concept supposedly first appeared in the writings of 19th century spiritualist Thomas Lake Harris. The first recognised usage in science fiction would be Trantor in Creator/IsaacAsimov's ''Foundation'' trilogy. The planet Coruscant in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' movies would probably be the most familiar to modern audiences. The logistics of such worlds -- how they get food, dissipate excess heat and so forth -- can be a subject of geeky speculation, as shown in multiple ''Webcomic/{{Irregular Webcomic}}s''. See also {{Planetville}}. * [[BubblyClouds Cloud Planets]] -- The land is not where Newton wants it. If something or someone lives here, either the ground [[FloatingContinent floats through the sky in chunks]], or there are hover-cities. Either way, watch that first step. Sometimes {{Hand Wave}}d by making them Jovian planets, although no known gas giants are anywhere ''near'' habitable. Venus again is a prime example, as some levels of its upper atmosphere would be pretty nice and potentially habitable -- if not for these pesky [[DeathWorld sulfuric acid clouds]] around.

** Jupiter is basically a liquid hydrogen planet, with a very large hurricane and possibly a rocky core. Neptune and Uranus are more like "slush planets".

* [[LostWoods Forest Planets]] -- A planet whose land surface is mostly or entirely covered by forest. While Jungle Planets tend to be tropical in nature, a Forest Planet tends to have a more temperate climate with trees similar to oak, birch, redwoods and so on. Sometimes found in the form of a Forest Moon orbiting a large planet.

Sometimes found in the form of a Forest Moon orbiting a large planet. Earth several million years ago could be considered a Forest Planet, since the warmer atmosphere and higher atmospheric humidity levels meant much more of the planet was covered in lush, tropical landscape.
