* 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.

* Mira in ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' has 5 moons, all but one of which are absolutely massive with the largest dominating the eastern night sky. They're each different colours, don't have phases, don't move in the sky and '''stars can be seen through them'''.

* In ''PerdidoStreetStation'' and its sequels, the moon is described as having two smaller moons orbiting it.
* In ''TheBookOfTheNewSun'', the moon is green, probably as a result of terraforming.

* In ''TheRedTent'', all the women menstruate like clockwork around the time of the New Moon, unless they're pregnant or not of reproductive age. In real life womens' cycles will tend to sync up when they live together, but usually not that much.

** The episode "Princess Twilight Sparkle" has a period where both Celestia and Luna are captured by chaotic vines, that Discord [[BlatantLies definitely had nothing to do with]], and with out their control of the sun and moon it becomes [[http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20131125161448/mlp/images/3/31/Day_and_night_together_S4E1.png day and night at the same time]]. Nevermind that in such a thing, the moon should not be shining brightly, nor should ''half the sky be day and half the sky night''.

** In ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion 3.33'', the Moon has undergone some [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/evangelion/images/6/61/Blood-stained_Moon_(Rebuild).png/revision/latest?cb=20131018111331 truly drastic changes]]: it's much closer to Earth (yet somehow still in a stable orbit), there are large blood splotches that weren't there in earlier movies, there's a bizarre red grid pattern across the whole thing, and it appears to have an ''atmosphere''. No explanation for any of this has been offered, although it's clear that [[spoiler:Third Impact was probably the thing that altered it]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/ThreeTwoOnePenguins'', Tell-a-Lie's moon is controlled by the planet instead of its own. When it is on its own, it'll crash down if anyone lies.

* The moon in ''Artists At The Ready'' has a castle built on it that's easily visible from other worlds. It's also permanently crescent-shaped, with the horns pointing upwards, and appears to be shackled to the ground.
