** [[spoiler: Patriot Costume]] may be this - nobody knows where it came from, why it took the form it did, why it [[spoiler: kidnapped Speed]] and what it wants from Young Avengers. However, it seems it can freely walk in and out of Mother's home dimension and don't get attacked. It seems to even ''creeps out'' Mother a bit.

* The Veratu in the miniseries ''ComicBook/RainbowInTheDark''. They are a swarm of ghostly looking entities with human flesh masks over their faces. Their one and only goal is to keep humanity locked in a colorless, monotonous LotusEaterMachine for all time.

** The 5th Dimensional Imps, of which Comicbook/{{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.

* 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 men witness his recently converted wife devours their daughter and him 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 with Superman 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.

** Creator/BrianWood's new X-Men series has Sublime joining forces with X-Men against Arkea - another sapient strain of bacteria that Sublime kicked out of the planet billions of years ago. It evolved in space, gaining power to infect machines like Sublime does organic beings and wants two things - revenge and infecting everything on Earth. It's more powerful and advanced, but also more primal, lacking her brother's subtlety, it just destroys. Wanna know how bad Arkea is? She made Sublime ''running'' and ''surrendering'' to the X-Men.

** A short story in the ''Empowered Unchained'' volume has a vast LivingSpaceship (and it's baby) who are shown to have [[BiggerOnTheInside entire worlds inside them]] and are able to suffer from infection by parasites that are intelligent and human-sized in their own right.

* Many antagonists (especially {{Bigger Bad}}s) from ''ComicBook/TwoThousandAD''[='=]s ''ComicBook/{{Slaine}}'' fall into this -- notably, Crom Cruach/Crom Dubh, the patron god of Slough Feg and Medb, as well as Aten (yep, pharaoh Akhenaten's monotheistic sun god), who Fomorian lord Moloch tries to summon to Britain through [[HumanSacrifice child sacrifices]]. Speaking of Fomorians, they are a whole species of {{humanoid abomination}}s (except for their sea-demon cousins led by Lord Odacon, who are {{puppeteer parasite}}s who look equal parts deep-sea monstrosities and aborted hell-larvae); there are also the [[TimeAbyss pre-human]] gods called the Cythrons, and [[TheFairFolk the Els]], who inhabit the various [[AnotherDimension otherworlds]]. Those races tend to be very unfriendly towards humanity.

** ''ComicBook/{{Necronauts}}'': The Sleepers in the Void are shapeless beings from between dimensions who devour human souls. Houdini has angered them many times by traveling to the border between life and death and escaping their grasp every single time, while Lovecraft is inspired to write his stories after his encounter with them.
