In the episode, "Ghostboy", Starfire said that it was not uncommon to be struck by sudden laser beams from outer space on her home world.
In "Staff Meeting", Starfire said that some Tamaranians are attached to inanimate objects, and are banished from the city and fed to the Glorthnorg.
In "Staring at the Future", a thirty-year older Starfire had become the Queen of Tamaran. Cyborg and Beast Boy visited her to try and get her to see a movie with them and asked if there were any movies on this world, but she said that, as queen, she had too many "responsibilities" and could not come with them.
In "Mr. Butt", the world appeared twice in flashbacks, showing a five-year-old Starfire and a young Blackfire playing, and how Blackfire had stolen her favorite doll back then.
The planet is shown again in "Tamaranian Vacation", where the Titans wish to visit the world, imagining it to be a wonderful place; due to Starfire's overly sweet personality and positive attitude. The place turns out the be nothing they imagined, from having to breathe in fire-burning oxygen, to simple handshakes starting an all-out war between Tamaraneans and other aliens.
In "More of the Same", Starfire mentioned some type of song all Tamaranians sing on New Year's Eve.
In BBSFBDAY!, this planet is mentioned when Starfire explains that she was born on a date which doesn't exist on the calendar of Earth since it has a different orbital trip around the Sun (60190 days/164.79 Earth years) thanks to being the eighth planet from the Sun.

Plant-life and Atmosphere
It has very little fauna, due to ever-burning effects all over the world. The air (as Beast Boy puts it) is "made out of hot sauce" which ensures that the weak do not survive.
Appearances in other Media
