The planet is introduced in the Babidi Saga, when Goku, Vegeta, and Gohan are in Babidi's spaceship. When the three Z Fighters are at Stage One, they use Rock-Paper-Scissors to decide who goes first. Vegeta is the victor, and gets ready to fight Pui Pui. With Vegeta dominating the battle, Babidi transports Pui Pui to his home planet, so that he will have an advantage while fighting Vegeta. However, Vegeta, due to his previous training under 450 times the gravity of Earth, and due to his upbringing on Planet Vegeta which has the same level of gravity, is unaffected by the change in gravity and effortlessly slaughters Pui Pui in minutes using his Double Galick Cannon on him.
The planet is never mentioned again until the Galactic Patrol Prisoner Saga when Moro and his army attacked Planet Zoon and killed its warriors who were protecting the royal treasure. Moro drains the life energy of Zoon, which results in the destruction of the planet and the complete extinction of the Zoon-seijin.
Following Moro's demise at the hands of Goku, the Namekian Dragon Balls are used to restore all the planets and lifeforms that had been lost, including Zoon.
