An eccentric Jupiter is a Jovian planet that orbits its star in an eccentric orbit. Eccentric Jupiters may disqualify a planetary system from having Earth-like planets in it because a massive gas giant with an eccentric orbit may remove all Earth mass planets from the habitable zone.

To date, it appears that approximately 7% of all stars (half of the known planetary systems) have an eccentric Jupiter (e > 0.1), making these planets more common than Hot Jupiters.

One surprising result that has come out of the more than 200 extrasolar planet discoveries as of 2006 is that 15 planets have high eccentricities (e > 0.6).

The typical exoplanet with an orbital period greater than 5 days has a median eccentricity of 0.23.
