* ''Fanfic/TheBridge'':
** Grand King Ghidorah is presented as one. He only looks like a three-headed golden dragon, but is something so alien in biology that calling him one is a serious understatement. He's also so impossibly ancient that he was a teenager when he and his brother wiped out the dinosaurs.
** The Nexuses of Magic [[spoiler:Bagan, Harmony, and Grogar]] are presented this, with WordOfGod constantly stressing that while they ''resemble'' [[spoiler:a dragon, a pony, and a goat]], they're ''not''. They're just primordial entities that ''look'' like them. They're also so immensely powerful that Grand King Ghidorah is zero match for any of them, even when they're only at 30 percent of their full power and a rampage by one of them is perceived by modern humans as having been a natural disaster as they simply couldn't comprehend that something that strong could actually exist. [[spoiler:Thankfully, Harmony is [[GodIsGood completely benevolent]] and opposing the other two.]]
** [[spoiler:Celestia and Luna]] could be considered lower tier ones, as [[spoiler:they're actually pieces of Harmony's power given life.]]

* ''[[Fanfic/GuardiansWizardsAndKungFuFighters Guardians, Wizards, and Kung-Fu Fighters]]'' has the Cavalcade of Horrors, the entities living in the depths of the Shadow Realm, which are described as being masses of claws and tentacles, with hides that shift between feathers and scales, and too many eyes. And then there's [[UltimateEvil whatever the hell]] lives below them at the very bottom of the Shadow Realm, which they serve and is described as being god-like.

** [[spoiler: The Phoenix a.k.a. Destruction]] is a particular example: on the physical plane, She has no specific form, unlike Her siblings, taking hosts, restoring or destroying worlds, making such decisions on an incomprehensible logic, being explicitly described by Loki as more of a force of nature than anything else. Loki describes Her as a being without any concept of collateral damage, restraint, or middle gears in general, taking hosts as a MoralityChain. Oh, and she can play with reality with consummate ease - when possessing [[spoiler: Harry]], instead of simply standing up, She rearranges reality so that he's stood up, in the exact same way that Chthon does several chapters later. Even a small fragment of her power isn't meant to touch the world in one place for very long, for fear of burning a hole in the universe and providing a beacon for yet more examples of this trope. More to the point, She's even more powerful than he is; when the Darkhold - semi-sentient utterly indestructible ultimate TomeOfEldritchLore - senses a mere ''whisper'' of her power, it starts literally trembling in fear.
*** And that's when she's in one of Her benevolent/justifiably outraged moods (what with [[spoiler: having merged with Lily Potter, Harry's mother]]). [[spoiler: The Dark Phoenix]], described as all that amoral volatility combined with human darkness, is even worse, something that Doctor Strange, who fights examples of this trope for a living, describes as 'a horror beyond words'.

*** This description is entirely justified, since the last Dark Phoenix, [[spoiler: Surtur]], destroyed ''an entire galaxy'' before it was stopped, also creating the Great Dragons (think Smaug, but worse), transforming defectors into its seven 'Great Captains', each of which is ''at least'' a PhysicalGod, transforming the spirits of its dead enemies into PersonOfMassDestruction scale minions, getting more powerful whenever it was fought... And even when it was defeated, even then, it was impossible to kill, so the Alliance against it had to empower a Skyfather level champion with a specially enchanted blade made of Uru and Vibranium, ''specifically designed'' to NoSell its Phoenix fire, ''just to distract it for long enough for them to seal it away.'' And ''even then'', they could [[SealedEvilInACan only imprison it for a million years]] in a cosmic scale multi-dimensional magical prison that encompasses entire worlds [[spoiler: (it's Yggdrasil)]], which simultaneously keeps it locked away, siphons off its power to strengthen the prison/empower the Warden, and which ''still'' occasionally becomes a LeakingCanOfEvil.



* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7779108/1/The-Master-of-Death The Master of Death]]'', Literature/HarryPotter and his companion both appear as Eldritch Abominations when they appear in [[Franchise/DresdenFiles the Dresden universe]] because according to his companion, the universe requires they leave behind their Shapes and borrow new ones from [[EldritchLocation a place where nothing exists]] until they leave. In his words, "There's quite a lot that doesn't exist. We didn't exist until a moment ago." As a result, to Dresden, most of his encounters with Harry are distinctly unnerving, because he thinks (and is technically right) that this twinkly eyed old man is one of the most terrifying entities ever to cross the boundaries of reality. Then he winds up ''literally'' [[DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu having tea with Cthulhu.]]

* In ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''/''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' crossover ''Fanfic/TheVampireOfSteel'', M'Nagaleh, a cosmic horror summoned by a mob of vampires checks most of Lovecraftian traits: Completely alien thought processes? Check. Humongous? Check. Gelatinous? Check. Terrifyingly powerful? Check. Tentacles? Double check. It's even called "a glob of whatever-it-was".
-->An aperture was opening in the very air above them, and something was tumbling out. Something glistening, gelatinous, tentacled, eyed, and alive. It settled around the towers, but there was more of it coming out.

* In ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'', there's ''[[TheMissingNo MissingNo]]'' itself, originated as a remnant of the previous timeline. It's apparently been known for several demonic names, and takes great pleasure in tormenting Ash about the things that have happened or will happen to his friends, knowing that he can't do anything about it.
