* If their [[LargeAndInCharge stature]] didn't give it away, you could pick Princesses Luna and Celestia as powerful from their manes and tals being composed not of hair but of a nebula and an aurora respectively.

* Much of ''Film/{{Interstellar}}'' takes place in a system around a black hole that has 25 times the mass of the supermassive black hole in the center of our galaxy, or 100,000,000 times the mass of our sun. And it is spinning at 99.8% the speed of light. It is also surrounded by an accretion disk of gas and rocks that form a huge ring of glowing hot material, but because of how the incredible gravity bends light it looks like it has two rings at a 90 degree angle. It's probably the weirdest looking portrayal of black hole ever. While also being the most scientifically accurate.

Most [[UnrealisticBlackHole Black Holes]] will take this form in media, never mind that you shouldn't be able to ''see'' a black hole under most circumstances... well, usually. Some black holes have what is called an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accretion_disc accretion disc]] that looks quite a bit like such a thing -- it's matter just outside the event horizon that manages to go into orbit around it before falling in, because centrifugal force balances out the massive gravity experienced so close to the event horizon. Nonetheless, the black hole will look like this in media even if there's no apparent source of the matter in the first place.

* The PreCrisis {{Superman}} story "Superman's Secret Afterlife!" had the hero being caught by a LifeEnergy sucking creature called a Helix in space, that looked like a miniature galaxy. It trapped him in [[LotusEaterMachine an illusion of his possible future life]] (with a little help from the PhantomZone Villains). Superman destroys it, appropriately enough, by [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome spinning it towards a nova]].
