The Earth is the third planet from the Sun, and the home to many diverse creatures such as humans, animals, plants, and kaiju. Most Godzilla films take place entirely on the Earth, with the exceptions of Invasion of Astro-Monster taking place partially on Planet X, Destroy All Monsters having scenes on the Moon, Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla including a scene in the asteroid belt, and the first two films of the GODZILLA anime trilogy taking place partially aboard the spaceship Aratrum. Other kaiju franchises, such as the Gamera and Guilala series, periodically move the action to other planets and moons as well.
