* One of the stories in ''Literature/StarTrekTheBraveAndTheBold'' involves a Bajoran prophecy suggesting Bajor will be at peace when all the planetís moons fully align. The bitter old terrorist Orta seeks to use a powerful artifact heís unearthed (created by SealedEvilInACan Malkus) to artificially move a moon and fulfil the prophecy early. Of course, he doesnít actually want peace - heís just using the prophecy as a ploy to start a conflict with the Federation.

** Though it's never explicitly said what that entails. In fact an alternate interpretation at least in Cthulu's case is that it refers to the Elder-Things (who may or may not have been responsible for trapping Cthulu underwater to begin with) which are described as having star-like heads.
* One of the lesser Literature/{{Dragonlance}} novels featured a portentious lunar alignment between the white, red, and black moons of Krynn, known as the [[RedEyesTakeWarning "Night of the Eye"]].
