** The 5th Dimensional Imps, of which Franchise/{{Superman}} villain Mr. Mxyzptlk is the most famous, have become an example of this. They can more or less wear the laws of physics like a funny paper hat, and while they tend to appear as cartoonish characters, those aren't their ''true'' forms. Luckily, most of them aren't interested enough in meddling with our universe, and those that do (like ComicBook/BatMite) are permitted only to cause mischief. Sometimes hiccups occur, like the time Mxyzptlk made the well-intentioned mistake of giving his reality-reshaping powers to the Joker.
*** It's eventually revealed that there are even ''higher'' dimensions than this, each with their own imps. The higher the dimension, the stronger the imp, all the way up to the one and only ''tenth''-dimensional imp, Ultimator.

** In one issue, Franchise/{{Superman}} teleports to the Edge of the Universe. Way out there, space becomes white, and after that, there is a MASSIVE, INFINITE WALL of {{Eldritch Abomination}}s / {{Body Horror}}s marking the final boundary between our universe and the next one over. In ComicBook/CountdownToFinalCrisis, though, this wall has symbols and statues of humanoid figures on it, like it's the outside wall of the Monitor's base.

** ''JLA: [[ComicBook/TheNail Another Nail]]'' has the Limbo Cell, a primordial creature that eats existence.
* One particularly obscure example that Franchise/{{Superman}} faced was [[MeaningfulName Viroxx]], which could only be described [[TheVirus an space-virus]] that devoured energy, [[TheAssimilator capable of converting sentient beings into drones]] that in turn would absorb others as nourishment for their master. The assimilating process was supposedly irreversible and turns the victim into a unfeeling, cold-blooded monster interested only in killing more people to absorb their energy (one heartbreaking moment was when a scientist witnessed his recently converted wife devours their daughter and he ends up being forced to kill her in self-defense); It had laid waste to many worlds, destroying billions of lives and reducing entire populations into a few thousand vagrants based on space fleets. Even Superman himself is unable to hold it back and in the end, with the combined effort of all the survivors they only managed to scary it away - ''not kill it'', but chase it far away from our galaxy.
* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' enemy Worldkiller-1 who shows up in the ''ComicBook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' arc is an omnicidal, shape-shifting, sentient alien black goo which steals -and often consumes- bodies and is bonded with an indestructible armor suit. And it's nearly as strong and invulnerable as a Kryptonian. And it isn't vulnerable to Kryptonite.

** In the end, both the Hunters Three and the Rot are subversions. The Hunters Three [[spoiler:turn out to be ordinary people after Maxine frees them of their corruption.]] The Rot itself is actually the natural force of death and decay [[spoiler:corrupted by Anton Arcane, an all too human villain.]]

*** There's at least one FanFiction out there, written like a Lovecraft story, which treats Unicron as an awakened Cthulu.

* ''ComicBook/HackSlash'' has the Neflords, giant masses of tentacles (that [[FaceFullOfAlienWingWong double as wing wongs]] [[MadeOfExplodium that can make things explode]]) which possibly lived in the void that existed before God created the universe. Being unable to create life themselves, the Neflords [[MarsNeedsWomen need virgins taken from Earth]] to impregnate to create minions. Also, their [[BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy main servant]] was [[Music/ElvisPresley Elvis]]. Yes, really.
** Later villain Mary Shelley Lovecraft, a metafictional entity who seeks to tear down the walls between "ideaspace" and reality. Intentionally or not, her mere presence in a reality causes stories to blur together (while in the Lovebunny Universe, the events of Lovecraft's ''The Colour Out of Space'' occurred, and while in the Creator/ArchieComics-inspired town of Haverhill, ''"The Shadow Over Haverhill"'' happened, with some ''Franchise/{{Frankenstein}}'' thrown in for good measure). The only reason [[BadassNormal Cassie]] and [[TheBigGuy Vlad]] managed to (temporarily) kill her was because she was severely weakened due to a confrontation with a shitload of superheroes (despite taking place in some kind of void, the power she exerted in that battle was able to reach the ''Hack/Slash'' Universe and cause every [[HorrorDoesntSettleForSimpleTuesday holiday-themed]] slasher to come out of hibernation early).

*** The Chaos King's army is composed of deceased gods he murdered and recreated as his puppets. But one of them is Glory, a gigantic monstrosity composed of thousands of alien pantheons it assimilated into itself. Its nature is so alien and bizarre that even ComicBook/TheMightyThor was scared beyond words during their encounter. It's an EldritchAbomination even to gods. It's also one of the few beings that joined the Chaos King willingly, because [[ForTheEvulz it enjoys all the destruction he causes]].

* While we don't know much about them yet, The Hunters Three of the relaunch Comicbook/AnimalMan appear to be these. Three absolutely horrific creatures who [[MeatPuppet "disguise themselves as men"]]. According to interviews, the three of them are from the edges of the DC Universe and serve a dark force lurking beneath it. Though, really, [[http://www.comicvine.com/hunters-three/65-58633/all-images/108-538958/hunters_buddy_1/105-1997905/ their appearance says it all]].

** The Orange Entity Ophidian (Avarice) was confirmed by WordOfGod to be the voice within the Orange Lantern Battery that converts its wielder into Agent Orange. Atrocitus initially assumed ComicBook/TheSpectre, the agent of God's Wrath, was the Rage entity. The Spectre denied this, claiming that he has ''met'' the Rage entity and warning Atrocitus (who, as one of the Five Inversions, is ''himself'' a HumanoidAbomination even without his red power ring) that seeking it out would only lead to his destruction. Avara, the Blue Entity of Hope, looks like a huge eagle... with three faces and beaks; while Proselyte, the Indigo Entity of Compassion, is just a massive octopus. Presumably, he just wants to hug you.
