* ''Wiki/SCPFoundation:'' [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1812 SCP-1812]] is what seems to be a small, yet tremendously dense asteroid orbiting Earth at just about 180 kilometers away, essentially acting as a second moon. The problem being, you won't perceive it, and it ''cannot'' affect you in any way or form, unless someone points it out to you, in which case you will be aware of how much the tides have risen, flooding so many coasts, and its light will let you see better at night. Or, going by the fact different individuals can perceive it at different places at once, it's some anomalous ''thing'' that doesn't actually exist, and when someone points it out to you it causes such severe delusions people drown on dry land, under tides that aren't real. The Foundation is completely uncertain if it exists or not, how the original finder managed to discover it when the only way to see it is for someone else to point it out, and why it is that the exact same measurements, with the exact same equipment, will give results backing the moon's existence when used by someone aware of it, and give entirely contradictory (AKA normal) results when used by anyone else. And one final phenomenon that backs neither possibility, and only serves to make the whole matter even stranger: The delusions are curable, in a GoneHorriblyRight way. Show an infected individual the extra illumination isn't real because the moon isn't real, and they will stop perceiving starlight wholesale, including sunlight. Convince an affected individual the supposed tides aren't real due to the same, and ''they'll start thinking water doesn't exist'', leading to death through dehydratation. The Foundation's containment procedures amount to making sure no one finds out about this moon, and possibly attempt to nuke the dubiously-existent rock into oblivion if more than 10% of the world learns of it.

* 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 [[DetonationMoon 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.]]



** In ''Symphony of the Night]'', ''[=SotN's=]'' moon appears crescent when viewed from the clock tower, full when viewed from the outer wall and Olrox's quarters, and full with a blood red tint when viewed from the castle keep. In all but Olrox's quarters, the moon is also terrifyingly HUGE. And yet, all of these locations are a short walk from each other, with the outer wall, clock tower, and castle keep all being ''right next door''.

* ''Webcomic/SoulSymphony'': The moon in Olivia's Soul World, where it is always night time, is the source of all energy and life. Supplies strange powers and mutations for Olivia's sidekick. Not only that, but it appears to be permanently crescent because a majority of it actually ''exploded.''



* In the WesternAnimation/{{Pixar short}}s ''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.

* ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'' has ''six'' moons, each in a geostationary orbit over a different part of the planet. They're pretty evenly spread, despite the fact that a geostationary orbit requires the object to be directly above the planet's equator. (Though it's debatable whether Arcadia even ''has'' an equator, being [[VideogameGeography doughnut-shaped]]...)
** As an added bonus, the moons supply Arcadia with [[GreenRocks Moon Stones]], which are the foundation of all magic and [[{{Magitek}} technology]] on the planet - each moon provides magic governing a different {{element|alPowers}}, so they're ColorCodedForYourConvenience.
