The planet Invader Flobee was assigned to is barren and rocky, inhabited by a species of rock people. Flobee tricked them into thinking he is their leader with his ingenious disguise (a couple of rocks strapped to him). The people probably believed he is some sort of deity, as they were seen worshipping him.
The planet Invader Stink was assigned to contains large dome structures. Zim watched Stink's progress with his telescope, finding Stink "resting on the job," when in fact he was relaxing as a city burned to the ground. Stink must have finished his mission, for the Irken Armada was later seen hovering above the same planet when Zim sent his transmission thanking the Tallest for the MegaDoomer, probably to perform the Organic sweep.
When Zim checked the progress of the other Invaders, he got a brief glimpse of Skutch on his assigned planet before the telescope went into static. Skutch could be seen laughing amongst the flames of a burning structure. Nothing about the planet Skutch was assigned to is known.
- Main article: Blorch
Before the planetary conversion, Blorch was inhabited by giant rat people. The Tallest, not wanting Skoodge as the posterboy for Irken conquest, launched him into the planet. Skoodge survived being launched, but some of the Blorch rats can be seen dying in that episode. They are presumably extinct.
The planet is the home of the "Large Nostril people" which is under assault by Invader Slacks. Nothing about the planet or the inhabitants is known, but if Tallest Purple's comment about "showing a puppet show depicting how [Invader Slacks should] destroy the planet" is taken seriously, then the Irkens will probably exterminate the inhabitants and use the space for a single purpose.
- Main article: Conventia
- Main article: Devastis
A planet designated for Irken training, Devastis is likely one of the many planets that was once a normal planet but got conquered by the Irken Empire, possibly during Operation Impending Doom 1 before Zim singlehandedly destroyed it. Now, Irkens go there to attend the military academy and to take the test to become a member of the Irken Elite. Zim caused a major blackout on an entire half of Devastis when he used a Maimbot on a snack machine. The blackout trapped the Irken Tak in a test booth. Tak later went to the Irken Control Brain on Devastis hoping to get another chance to take the test. The control brains there can see the future. This ability is probably used during Invader testing.

- Main article: Hobo 13 (Planet)
The harsh and dry planet of Hobo 13 serves as a training planet for soldiers. Other-worldly trainees hoping to become skilled soldiers come here to participate in a series of trials. Zim was sent here by the Tallest to prove he could pass in order to get a shipment of military equipment in the episode Hobo 13. The trials to become a soldier are to get across a molten lava chasm, navigate across a canyon that is home to the meat-thirsty Hogulus, get through a laser trench, cross a pool of acid, find the way out of a maze where a robotic snake-thing lurks, and get past a swamp full of plant monsters until finally reaching the Fortress of Pain.
The Hobo species identify themselves through numbers instead of names. For example, one of the drill instructors on Hobo 13 is Sergeant Hobo 678.
It is probable that the Hobo race is one of the allies of the Irken Empire, since it has not been conquered by any Irken Invader and welcomes Irkens as part of their training groups.
Homeworld of Planet JackersEdit
The Planet Jackers' Homeworld orbits a dying sun that will eventually burn out. The Jackers use their planet moving technology to steal planets and throw them into the sun like firewood to keep it burning. The Jackers encase a planet in a hollow metal bubble that displays an image of a sky on the inside so that no one on the planet knows what is going on. The metal bubble is attached to a ship that drags the planet to the sun of the Jacker home world and drops it in.
Jackers Oog-Ah and Nik steal Earth, but Zim is able to cut through the bubble in time to save it. There is a treaty that says that no Jacker can steal any planet marked for conquest but they can have any other unmarked planet. Of course, Earth wasn't marked because Zim isn't on an official mission.
- Main article: Irk
Irk is the home planet of the Irkens. The view of Irk from space is unknown to viewers, but the capital city could be seen in The Nightmare Begins, and possibly a second time in the title sequence when Zim flies away from the armada. It is theorized that with the dominance of the planet by the Irken species, the entire planet has become covered in sprawling cities and metropolises. The Tallests' building on the planet is the supposed "Tallest Tower" where the Tallest stay when they are actually on the planet (although they mostly spend their time on the Massive).
It is also known that there are underground facilities on the planet that are used to train smeets for at least 10 years. Zim and Skoodge were the only ones to ever leave the facility before they reach ten years of age.
Conveyor Belt PlanetEdit
- Main article: Conveyor Belt Planet
Another fully mechanical planet, the Storage Planet is used for storing stuff, and maybe manufacturing things. It is in the massive storage bay where Tallest Red showed Tallest Purple the Megadoomer Combat Stealth Mech and the defective SIR units.
- Main article: Judgementia
In the cancelled episode The Trial, Zim found himself on this planet after being beaten and transported from Earth. Here, Zim was put under an Existence Evaluation to determine whether or not he is a defective. This is determined by having three Irken Control Brains sift through Zim's memories and judge him accordingly. The memories were broadcasted for all to see. These control brains are equipped with odd tentacles, and look more sinister than previously-seen models.
- Main article: Meekrob
The planet Nhar-Gh'Ok is home to the species of the same name. They are vicious, resemble human babies and have names that resemble baby talk (Shnooky, Fooby, etc.). Nothing is known about their planet, but the Nhar-Gh'oks themselves possess several strange abilities, such as razor-sharp teeth, green and bulging pupil-less eyes, and acidic vomit that can melt steel.
When Dib stole the schematics of an alien communication device from Zim's base in the episode Vindicated!, he and Skool counselor Mr. Dwicky sent Zim an encoded Plookesian signal and promised to give Zim superweapons if he met them in the woods without a disguise on. While in the woods, a pair of Plookesians named Mooshy and Spoopty arrived as well, having also picked up on the Plookesian signal. They took Mr. Dwicky with them and gave Zim some super weapons they had, leaving Dib with nothing. Information on their actual planet of origin is unknown.
Zim mentioned this planet prior to his heat-induced hallucinating: "So hot! Even Sirus Minor didn't orbit such a miserable star!" during Door to Door. From that statement, it can assessed that Sirus Minor is a planet well-known for being extremely hot, or that it closely orbits a large star.
Taoola and CharcungaEditEvery thousand years, the alignment of Taoola and Charcunga allows the ancient traveler Mortos der Soulstealer to escape from "the place beneath the Overworld" and walk amongst mortals for one day. One planet is powered by a magical force deep within the underground. Although Mortos only names two planets, three are shown aligning. Nothing else about these planets are known.
Planet Vort is the home of the Vortians, a highly scientific race that is responsible for much of the Irken Empire's weaponry. The Vortians resemble goats, as the Irkens resemble insects. It was once allied with Irk, and is the homeworld of Lard Nar, leader of The Resisty. It was singled out for conquest in The Nightmare Begins, seen briefly in Walk for Your Lives, stated to have been conquered in Megadoomer, and turned into a prison in Backseat Drivers From Beyond the Stars. Tallest Red also named it as home of the most comfortable couch in the universe.
Planet of Broken Glass and Exploding Head PlanetsEdit
When Zim bothered the Almighty Tallest with another mission report, the Tallest contemplated other potential places they could have sent him:
- Purple: Zim. You know, we really should've given him a...a mission on a sun, or a planet of broken glass or something.
- Red: ...Or one of those exploding head planets. (Possibly a reference to one of Jhonen Vasquez's comics, Johnny the Homicidal Maniac).
