* VillainsBlendInBetter

to:

* VillainsBlendInBetterVillainsBlendInBetter: It helps that his Masks include several human(ish) forms, however. He's been known to impersonate other people as well before revealing his true nature. [[ParanoiaFuel He could be anyone]].

A giant spider with a human face. Other forms include a young woman with multiple arms. He (or she) lives in a cavern under Mount Voormithadreth in ancient Hyperborea, and works on an endless task of bridging a chasm. Because of its appearance, Atlach is considered the regent of all spiders. The ''Spiders of Leng'' (huge purple spiders) are believed to be her children and servitors.

** GodIsEvil: And considering how it's implied that he's [[TopGod Azathoth's]] disembodied consciousness, he could be this as well.



* SatanicArchetype: A messenger (which is what the word "angel" means) for [[MadGod Azathoth]] who's shown to have resentment for the Outer Gods, one of few truly evil figures in the mythos, and a supreme manipulator. Yeah, Gnarly's the closest thing to the Devil, [[UpToEleven if not worse]]. The Arkham witch coven believed that ''The Black Man'' was this. Whether or not this was intentional on Nyarlathotep's part or its what the witches just assumed is unknown.

* ItAmusedMe: Seems to be his reason for everything he does. He is all-powerful and can make people worship him if he wants to, but he uses propadanda and manipulates people into worshipping him instead. He can destroy the human race whenever he wants but he would rather trap one in a DealWithTheDevil and eventually FateWorseThanDeath.

Entities of the Mythos who operate on a [[CosmicEntity cosmic scale]], and tend to be far more powerful than most Great Old Ones. The Outer Gods are related to natural forces, such as Radiation, Time, or Childbearing. This classification originated in the ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu'' [=RPG=], and recently has been used within mythos literature.

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: The Buddha is noted as being partial to "helping" humanity through the offer of Enlightenment. However, attaining Enlightenment in the Buddhist sense constitutes slowly losing your humanity (in game terms, your Mythos score increases and your Sanity decreases permanently, although you can pass as somewhat sane in polite company). Fully-Enlightened people who join with the Buddha are no longer even remotely human in a psychological sense.

* HadToBeSharp: In a [[CosmicHorrorStory universe]] like the CthulhuMythos, a Shart-stain fragment of the Daemon Sultan needed to get powerful in order to survive, It is most likely that it grew in power by consuming lesser beings and kept building in power untill it was strong enough to casually munch on the unspeakable horrors that make the setting the bleak cosmos it's known for.

* PintSizedPowerhouse: Smaller than most Outer gods, enough to inhabit a cave on Yuggoth (a planet about the same size as pluto) and strong enough to overpower other eldritch horrors and consume them.

* BigBad: Probably the best contender. As he does not operate on BlueAndOrangeMorality and fully understands human morality; said understanding he uses to torment mankind.



* EverythingsBetterWithSamurai: ''Aku-Shin-Kage'', a Mask that plagues Japan. Looks like an armored samurai, but its face is [[TooManyMouths covered in mouths]]. Can also take normal human look, which was UsefulNotes/OdaNobunaga in the past, but usually a businessman in the present.



* FlamingDevil: Nyarlathotep's avatar as the overlord of the Dreamlands is an extremely attractive youth in a sparkly robe and jewelry--a "real flamboyant dude," to quote the H. P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast.



* HaveAGayOldTime: In ''Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath'', he is described as being "resplendent in gay, prismatic robes". The fact that he's described as being tall, slim, and boyish-faced doesn't help.

* TheAntiGod: Possibly the closest thing to one as described by theologian Creator/CSLewis, he has no intelligence, personality, autonomy, and in fact the only thing that doesn't fit in Lewis's description is that he actually exists.
