* The [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons Mind Flayer]] from ''Series/StrangerThings'' is a towering, shadowy ''thing'' that inflicts extreme MindRape, created and controls the Demogorgons as its foot soldiers, and may be responsible for turning the Upside-Down into a desolate EldritchLocation. After learning of our world, it's trying to find purchase on Earth and terraform it to be more hospitable for itself, starting with the town of Hawkins. The protagonists never figure out its motives for all this, but speculate that it sees itself as inherently superior to all other forms of life and thus wants to make everything like itself. In an interesting {{Deconstruction}}, the Mind Flayer is depicted as being less of a truly superior being and more of a [[EvilIsPetty petty]], almost pathetic creature with a HairTriggerTemper; it has pretty much zero tolerance for any sort of pain or setbacks, and seems to throw violent and [[DisproportionateRetribution disproportionate]] tantrums whenever it's hindered in anyway. That's not to say it isn't genuinely dangerous, but for what is has in strength, it [[PsychopathicManChild lacks in maturity]].

** Before God and Amara even existed, there was only absolute nothingness. This giant nothing is actually sentient, has a true form that even ANGELS would go mad just from seeing, and its mindset is noticeably more alien than that of any other deity or cosmic entity. Similarly to Lovecraft's Azatoth, it is usually sleeping forever as a mindless entity.

* ''Series/AmericanGods'' has "Mr. Wood", an ancient former God of trees and forests who saw that the world was moving toward a new age of technology, and rather than fight it, sacrificed his forests to the new world. This allowed him to become one of the New Gods, whose domain is the mass use of wood. Unlike the other New Gods, he has no [[HumanoidAbomination humanoid form]], instead manifesting as prehensile branches and roots from anything made of wood.

**An understated one is TheMentor of ''Series/PowerRangersMegaforce,'' Gosei. When the newly-minted Rangers question his appearance - a metal face on the wall, only ''vaguely'' human-ish - he tells them that it's AFormYouAreComfortableWith to communicate with humans. Needing to do that in the ''first'' place makes you more alien than your average RubberForeheadAliens or PeopleInRubberSuits as it is, but needing to do that and ''this'' being as close to humanoid as you can manage puts you in far stranger waters.

* Dracula in ''PennyDreadful''; he's a pure demon (Lucifer's brother) and his true form is unknown, though several references to The Dragon of the Bible are said and comparisons with "creatures of the night" (several nocturnal predators like bats and rats).

** "Bray Wyatt" from ''Series/WWE'' could be considered one of these, albeit assuming a simplistic human forum manifesting in the WWE Universe. He is a self-proclaimed Eater Of Worlds.

*** The tentacle beast ('Hellmouth Spawn') is implied to simply be the creature that lurks in the Hellmouth's 'entrance' (Giles mentions the second time that it's grown since they saw it last) - the world-ending would be caused by all of said creature's Old One compatriots that would also pop through to Earth should the Hellmouth stay open.



** The Season 8 comics have Sephrillian, ''Fray'' gives us Neauth, Boluz, and Vrill, and the EU Creator/DarkHorseComics showed Ky-laag and Azogg-Mon.
