* ''Videogame/DeadlyRoomsOfDeath'' has the Pit Thing. He manifests as a voice rising from various pits throughout the wold and the portrait that appears when he speaks looks like some tentacles trying to squeeze through a crack. When the truth vessels try to describe him, they don't get any further than "a network of gentle strangulations." He refers to another godlike being as his sister, and claims that a thousand of his hearts die every time he makes himself understood. Evidently, he's something that's simply too weird to explain.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'', Jubileus and Queen Sheba are analogous to {{God}} and {{Satan}} respectively, but the severe CrapsackWorld means they don't actually care about individuals and are fairly mindless despite their horrendous power.

* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy''
** The creature [[http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Omega_%28enemy%29 Omega]] is a reoccurring super-boss in many ''Final Fantasy'' games. Originally it was just a powerful machine that, according to ''Final Fantasy'' lore, would just randomly attack things that got near it. More recent games and story expand on Omega's back-story and imply that the different versions of Omega in other ''Final Fantasy'' games are in fact the same thing and Omega really exists across multiple universes with [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith a shape that conforms]] to the laws and rules of said universe. Also, one story states that Omega is supposed to kill a powerful foe whom most assume to be Shinryu, a powerful god-dragon that also exists across multiple universes.
*** Seriously, one of the game quotes for this this thing is: "From the sky it comes, heartless and bloodless—Omega, Bringer of the End! Unleash your might in the name of destruction... and may all men know despair!"
** Chaos from the original ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyI Final Fantasy]]'' is an Eldritch Abomination created by an endless time loop.
** Cloud of Darkness from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII'': ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.
** Zeromus in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' is more or less the AnthropomorphicPersonification of anger and hatred, borne from the soul of an ancient, evil alien wizard. [[http://www.videogamesprites.net/FinalFantasy4/Bosses/Zeromus2.gif And he looks like this.]]
** Exdeath in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV''. He just plain is the part normally and really looks it [[spoiler: in his ultimate Tree form at the final battle and as Neo Exdeath.]] He was born from an aggregate of evil souls sealed into a sacred tree, and later becomes an embodiment of The Void.
*** Those nameless... ''things'' that lurk below the ocean floor.
** Kefka from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', [[spoiler:once he absorbed the three goddesses]], stands atop a large tower of human flesh and organs whose floors represent the levels in Dante's Divine Comedy.
** Jenova from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', an {{Expy}} of the creature from ''Film/TheThing1982'' and conceptual sibling to [[VideoGame/ChronoTrigger Lavos]]. Jenova has no set form, and mimics the appearance of its prey; in this case, the vague outline of a woman, with missing limbs and [[EyesDoNotBelongThere eyeballs in place of nipples]]. Its descent marked the downfall of the [[{{Precursors}} Cetra civilization]]. By extension, Sephiroth - the fruit of a project to create Jenova-infused superbabies - is [[HalfHumanHybrid half-human]], half-Eldritch Abomination.
*** The [=WEAPONs=] are Antieldritch Unabominations. [[AllThereInTheManual In the backstory of the game]], these creatures are the [[GaiasVengeance all-natural guardians of the Planet]][=/=]TheLifestream (your mileage may vary if the Lifestream can count as an eldritch entity). Unfortunately, humanity has [[HumansAreBastards proven itself dangerous]] to the Planet, so they went aggro on human cities.
** Xagor of ''[[VideoGame/SaGa3 Final Fantasy Legend 3]]'', which resemble nothing more than a mass of flailing tentacles and fanged mouths.
** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'', Necron fits this to a T, with the effect being accentuated by horrific [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62MkCz0f83s scenery and music]]. Necron (like Amarant) was a replacement name chosen because the original would have exceeded their name character limit. Its original name? ''"The Darkness of Eternity"''.
*** Also, there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_HM7kgvbr2E Ozma]]. Like Necron, it happens to be a GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere.
** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', Sin is a giant monster the size of a city that emerges from the depths of the ocean to completely annihilate all settlements larger than small villages at random intervals and terrorized Spira for a thousand years. Even if it is defeated by a High Summoner, [[spoiler:by sacrificing himself and his friends]], it returns a few years later [[spoiler:by reincarnating from the body of the High Summoner's closest friend]] to continue its rampage. Sin leaves swarms of smaller monsters in its path and everyone who survives coming into contact with its toxins (fortunately) suffers from massive memory loss. And apparently, it can wipe out entire armies by causing distortions of space.
*** [[spoiler:Yu Yevon and The Final Aeon]]. The former is the still lingering sentiment of a long dead summoner who frequently possesses Aeons for the purpose of destroying the world and is the unholy will [[spoiler:powering Sin]]. The latter, while benevolent (usually), is powerful, and its warped form is [[PoweredByAForsakenChild crafted from the loving sacrifice of a Guardian for his/her Summoner]]. An example is [[spoiler:Seymour]]'s Anima, whose domain is ''pain''.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' has all of the summonable Espers, being based on a mix of [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics Lucavi]] and past final bosses.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'' brings back Atomos, everyone's favorite inter-dimensional nightmare from V and IX. This time, [[spoiler:it is actually quite capable of devouring a timeline.]]
** The world of Ivalice in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' is so heavily populated with Eldritches, it's a wonder anyone is still scared at this point. ''All of the summons'' are varying degrees of this, plus the final boss of the sequel DS game, the Occuria...
** The Fal'Cie from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' are also this, despite looking for the most part like bizarre machine-things.
*** In [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2 the sequel]] there's Gogmagog, an abomination that the above mentioned Fal'Cie had to throw out of the time-space continuum to be rid of.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsA2'' has [[spoiler:the Neukhia, whose presence is so dangerously poweful, even having a LIMB in Ivalice presents an apocalyptic threat]]

* The Destroyer in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}''. It's said to be an entity from another dimension that destroyed the {{Precursors}}, with the last one sealing it in a Vault. Of course, the character who said this turned out to be an UnreliableExpositor, but there is some evidence that it's more than just a disused {{Precursor}} weapon.

** ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaLordsOfShadow2 Lords of Shadow 2]]'' continues the trend of those by giving us Inner Dracula, also known as the blob of blood and the source of Dracula's powers.

* TheVirus in ''VideoGame/HomeworldCataclysm''. The local {{Precursors}} apparently picked it up in [[SubspaceOrHyperspace subspace]] and disabled their ship in an attempt to [[SealedEvilInACan contain it]]. They failed, obviously, and once it was released it [[TheAssimilator assimilated]] everything it could find, from people to entire ships, absorbing it all into one colossal galaxy-wide HiveMind with the aim of assimilating ''everything''.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'', it is revealed that the plague afflicting the city of Yharnam originates from [[spoiler:a race of monstrous otherworldly beings known as "Great Ones." These creatures have strong [[CosmicHorrorStory Lovecraftian overtones]] in their appearance and underlying themes, and are worshipped by mad cultists in the same manner as Lovecraft's [[CthulhuMythos Great Old Ones]].]] [[spoiler:Despite having similar resemblance to Lovecraftian stories, the Great Ones ''actively'' seek to ascend and guide humanity with their insights rather than ignoring the humans [[HumansAreInsects as if they were insects]]. [[ReligionOfEvil The Healing Church]] and [[MadScientist Byrgenwerth College]], on the other hand, are [[EvilerThanThou far more sinister]] [[HumansAreCthulhu and incomprehensible]] than the Great Ones themselves. Some Great Ones, such as Rom the Vacuous Spider and the Moon Presence, are even implied to have been [[WasOnceAMan once humans]].]]

** Most ''Kirby'' final bosses are at least somewhat eldritch. Nightmare is a wraithlike manifestation of bad dreams, Dark Mind from ''[[VideoGame/KirbyAndTheAmazingMirror The Amazing Mirror]]'' is an evil mirror demon, and Dark Nebula from ''[[VideoGame/KirbySqueakSquad Squeak Squad]]'' is a cycloptic black star stated to be the ruler of the underworld.
