* TheGhost: Lovecraft himself only referred to her and vaguely hinted at her character in his stories (most memorably "Film/TheWhispererInDarkness", where the Mi-Go were shown to worship her). It was through later writers that her true nature was revealed.

Added DiffLines:

* AuthorAvatar
* AntiHero: Despite being Lovecraft's most recurring protagonist, he does almost nothing to help anyone that doesn't benefit him directly in any of his stories. In fact, [[StrawNihilist he seems to outright reject the idea that anything in human reality matters]]...[[AuthorAvatar perfectly mirroring Lovecraft's own views]] at least during his Decadent period. However, in ''The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath'', he repays the cats who saved him from the moon-beasts by alerting them to and helping them foil a Zoog raid. When he discovers three of the ghouls who helped him, captured and being tortured by said moon-beasts at the nameless rock near Sarkomand, he derails his own quest to summon the night-gaunts and the ghoul army to save them.

* BadassBookworm: He goes up against ''moon beasts'', for Yig's sake. You don't even want to ''think'' about those.

* TheQuest: Several, including the well known ''Dream-Quest'' [[spoiler: but also his travels beyond time and space.]]

* {{Physical God}}/{{Reality Warper}}: Most of them are currently sealed and had its powers and movement very limited, so it wasn't an example of this trope (but could have been if the Old Ones had ever gotten loose).

An entity which appears as a giant fireball. The ''Fire Vampires'', little flame-like monsters that ignite anything flammable, are Cthugha's servitors.

** Screw that up, however... and you summon [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast "the Feaster from Beyond the Stars."]]

* CharacterFilibuster: His speech to Randolph Carter and the end of "[[http://www.dagonbytes.com/thelibrary/lovecraft/thedreamquestofunknownkadath.htm The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath]]" goes on for several paragraphs on end. In the audio version, it goes on for seventeen minutes. This is all the more notable for being the only moment in the story in which anyone at all speaks—at all other times it is narrated that communication takes place.

** ScaryBlackMan: How his human avatars tend to appear. Although it should be noted that it's usually just the color of his skin (as in pitch-black) instead of overall physiognomy.
