* ''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.

* 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.

* The recent run on the ''Franchise/GreenLantern'' comics has seen various alien entities that are incarnations of the various colors of the emotional spectrum, which has led to some fan speculating that these beasts may be like infant Chaos Gods from TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} in training. These include the Yellow Entity Parallax (Fear), the Green Entity Ion (Will), and the Violet Predator (Love). These entities are known to possess and empower worthy individuals, but are often monstrous and insanely powerful.

** ComicBook/{{Galactus}}. [[TimeAbyss Older than the universe itself]] and incomprehensible by mortals. It's {{canon}} that his hat-wearing humanoid form is simply an image our puny minds superimposes over a reality [[we cannot YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm truly comprehend]]; for instance, Beta-Ray Bill's species sees him as a big starfish.
