* In ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'', Golarion's moon has a large forest created by a natural disaster, known as the Moonscar. It's full of demons. Then there's the moon that hangs over the Boneyard, the place souls gather before being judged and going to their final reward. Said moon is actually Groetus, god of the apocalypse.

* ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'': The moon is said to be an AdvancedAncientAcropolis that lifted off one day into the sky, a great big crater being offered as proof the city once existed (the world of Weyard is flat, presumably the moon is as well, despite having phases and causing eclipses).

* In the Cartoon! segments of ''TheAquabatsSuperShow'', the moon is apparently a vessel, piloted by a villain named Moon Cheese. There is also a cavern at the center containing a massive lake housing an underwater kingdom.

* The moon in ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'' is always a crescent, with the overly long horns nearly touching each other. It's as if someone's taken out a large chunk of it, because it ''is''; Koro-sensei [[DefaceOfTheMoon blew up 70% of the Moon in the beginning]], making it a permanent crescent.
** [[spoiler:In the epilogue, the crescent moon collapses due to gravity and becomes closer to Earth, eventually reforming into the size and shape prior to the explosion.]]

* ''Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial'', in the scene where ET makes Elliot's bike fly. The image of the bike silhouetted against the moon became the logo of Creator/StevenSpielberg's production company AmblinEntertainment.

** It also hid the fact that the planet they were on was [[spoiler:Earth]]. When season 2 starts and only the actual moon remains, Dinobot is the first to realize that Megatron had led them to the correct planet after all.
** Um, no, Waspinator is the first to figure it out, Dinobot suspects it, but Waspinator confirms it.

* In the Pixar short ''La Luna'', The moon is revealed to only be about 50 feet up, and it doesn't really have phases. Instead, it's a dark sphere covered in small glowing stars. The characters have to head up to it and sweep a portion of them into craters to give it its trademark crescent shape.

* Parodied in ''TheSimpsons''. In the episode "Dude, Where's My Ranch?", Lisa and guest character Luke are looking at the night sky and comment on how big the moon seems. The camera then pans back to show the landscape they're on - with the moon taking up half the screen.

* In ''ThundarrTheBarbarian'', a runaway planet passes between the Earth and the Moon, and its gravitational field cracks the latter in half, like a walnut. This doesn't affect its orbit in the slightest, but it does end human civilization.
* ''TheTick'' had a normal moon..then had CHA lasered into it...then explosives filled the C in...then it got a bite taken out of it.

* ''FanboyAndChumChum''. For the most blatant example, in "Fanboy in the Plastic Bubble" the titular bubble is popped by the crescent moon.

* The moon from ''RubyGloom'' appears to be alive. It has eyes, a mouth, and is even seen reacting to what the characters are doing sometimes. Oh, and it sings the theme song.

* A particularly common goof in scenes with a full Moon, that have been retouched by one reason or another by adding it, is to use [[http://nssdc.gsfc.nasa.gov/planetary/lunar/images/as11_44_6667.jpg this image]] instead of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:FullMoon2010.jpg this other]]. The latter is the Moon seen from Earth... but the former was taken by the astronauts of the Apollo XI and the Moon is ''never'' seen that way from Earth.
