When you visit any island, the Sun is in the sky. If you drag it down below the horizon past sunset) and night time will come and the Moon will fly into the sky. The Pygmies will then sleep. To make it day again, you drag the moon up above the horizon. If you keep it at the horizon, sunset will appear and the Pygmies will stare mesmerized.

A main difference between the Sun in the original version is Temperature. Added in Ep 30: Great Job Ice Hole, if you stretch and pinch the sun it will become hotter and colder (respectively). When the sun is large, the Pygmies will sweat until they burst into flames and explode. If the sun is large on Ice Island and they catch fire, they will melt through the ice and make the Ice Hole. If the sun is small, they will shiver violently until they freeze into blocks of ice which shatter when touched.

Introduced in Journey To Uranus Episode 2: Electric Booga-Loo, it can be found on Earth, Uranus, Mercury, and in Outer Space as its own star. In Space, if you drag Pygmies onto the sun, they will sizzle up into flames. From the planets, it is the same as the Pocket God version (dragging the sun below and the moon appears at the top of the sky) but has a more realistic, sun-like appearance in terms of coloring. On Uranus, the sun is the same size as on Earth, and on Mercury it is much larger.
