* Pious Augustus of ''VideoGame/EternalDarkness'' is counting on the planets aligning to channel enough power to summon his Ancient into the mortal world. He's been waiting for two millenia for this event which of course is at the TurnOfTheMillennium.
* The Grand Cross planetary alignment is a major part of the plot of ''{{Persona 2}}: Innocent Sin''. In ''Eternal Punishment'', it's become a minor background element whose only significance is that absolutely nothing of note happened during it... [[spoiler: acting as an absolute confirmation that the events of the prior game never came to pass in this timeline.]]

* 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"]].
