The moon appears as a living crescent at the end of the chapter "Earth S.O.S.!: Part 2". The moon watches Senbei Norimaki looking for Mole Cricket in the grass at the end of "Arale's Big Change. In "Bye-Bye Super Power!", Senbei is sent up on the moon when he asks Arale to attack him, thinking he succeeded in reducing her strength. The moon is shown again as it makes a face in "Affairs of the Heart!" It also appears in "Monsters' Night", talking to one of Trampire's followers and making him transform into a werewolf.
