* [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Ming The Merciless]] from ''Film/FlashGordon'' is implied to rule the entire universe. Every thousand years, he test every inhabited planet with natural disasters and wipes them out if they recognize that an alien is causing them. This would explain why the only planets we see besides Earth are Mongo and its [[BabyPlanet various moons]].

** A ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' episode, however, proves that SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale (or Kids' Show Writers [[TheyJustDidntCare Just Don't Care]] About Scale, anyway.) The Rangers are traveling at light speed to the Farthest Galaxy. Now, the distance to the farthest known is over '''thirteen billion light years.''' But wait, the place they ''named'' the Farthest Galaxy might actually not be that far, you say? Well, the ''nearest'' galaxy, good ol' Andromeda, would be a 2.5 million year trip at light speed. Worse, "light years" ''are'' mentioned. You'd think even if they didn't know the math, they'd know that light speed plus light years equals a team of octogenarians with attitudes.

* ''StrontiumDog'' mostly refers to the universe as "The Galaxy" but some planets are quoted as being millions of light years away from each other. The Walrog invaders are said to be from the Isthman Galaxy.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Pikmin}} 3'', the opening states that the Koppaites travelled 279,000 light years to reach PNF-404 (heavily hinted to be the Earth at some point in the distant future). While the exact size of the Milky Way is not precisely known, the largest estimates only put it at 180,000 light years in diameter, meaning that the planet Koppai must be located in another galaxy.

** ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace'' has the Rangers searching for TheObiWan, Zordon, whom the LegionOfDoom made off with in the premiere. We get at least one instance of Andros saying something to the effect of "well, the scan's done and he's not in ''that'' galaxy; let's move on." It's said as casually as if they'd glanced into a room in a house and seen no sign of someone; "nobody in there, let's check the kitchen." The vastness of intergalactic space really is nothing to the Rangers.
