Luna is most recognizable from the Harry Potter series. Luna's father was the editor of the newspaper The Quibbler, which often espoused conspiracy theories and unconventional ideas. Her mother died when she was 9, while experimenting with spells. Luna was a member of Dumbledore's Army, and she was a Ravenclaw. Luna was as unconventional as her parents, and was described by J.K. Rowling as someone who would 'believe 10 impossible things before breakfast.'

Luna Maximoff was a minor character in the Marvel universe.

Luna was a character in the Incarnations of Immortality series by Piers Anthony.
