** [[TheOldGods The elder gods]] are 5 extremely powerful beings who have CompleteImmortality (except possibly if their rebirth process fails) and are powerful enough create to planets and life. They barely acknowledged that intelligent life exists and each one is a personification of different aspect of reality. 4 of them are currently sleeping on Gielinor and bad things will happen when they wake up. [spoiler: [[CosmicHorrorStory they will destroy the entire universe in order to feed off of it's life energy, except for the Abyss and Gielinor,]] which will become a DeathWorld, and they have done this many times before.] Mah, the fifth Elder God, is so powerful even in her severely weakened that Zaros, who it one of the most powerful young gods ever, immediately runs when she wakes up enraged, and it has been implied that contact with Mah is what drove Amascut insane.

** The monster from the SurvivalHorror inspired quest Broken Home. It looks like a gigantic slug covered in eyes and mouths. It can shapeshift into anybody it has eaten, including ghosts, an is able OneHitKill you if it catches you, and it may or may not be responsible for some of the weird unexplained events in the quest. It was released from an ancient mental hospital after somebody DugTooDeep. [spoiler: It is a cthonian demon who went insane after accidentally eating a human girl he was friends with, in a surprising aversion of AlwaysChaoticEvil, although it is clear that he has BlueAndOrangeMorality] ** The Pests are a HoardOfAlienLocusts from another dimension called the void that all have very weird appearances.

*** The weird looking Penance monsters from the Barbarian Assault minigame have been revealed to be the spawn of a very powerful Cthonian demon who entered Gielenor by eating the soul of a barbarian who dreamed about him and emerging from her corpse after she died. ** The monster from the SurvivalHorror inspired quest Broken Home.

The blacklight virus is abominable, but not eldritch.
* ''VideoGame/{{Prototype}}'' ** The Blacklight Virus. A sentient virus that [[ImAHumanitarian consumes biomass]], can shapeshift, absorbs peoples' memories, singlehandedly demolishes entire armies, and is NighInvulnerable ([[spoiler:even a ''nuke'' couldn't kill it in the end]]). Even ''other'' viral monsters [[FoodChainOfEvil end up on its menu in the end]]. [[spoiler:And it's the ''[[VillainProtagonist protagonist]]''.]] ** [[spoiler:Elizabeth Greene,]] a HumanoidAbomination who looks like a normal, good-looking woman, but is [[spoiler:the Blacklight Virus's beta version]]. ** ''And'' there's also [[spoiler:PARIAH. He's only mentioned, but it's implied that if he and Alex Mercer ever meet, it's TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.]] ** In ''Videogame/{{Prototype2}}'', the Blacklight Virus now has a new host: James Heller. And his powers are far more monstrous than Alex Mercer's in the first Prototype, thanks to his "tendrils" power. Whenever tendrils are involved, the result is masses of flesh dangling from the buildings with strung-up corpses caught like flies in spider silk.

* ''SuperSmashBros:'' ''4'' has, [[SurpriseCreepy surprisingly]], the [[TrueFinalBoss Master Core]]. It's a chaotic entanglement of formless, sentient dark matter residing within Master Hand, that takes forms that can be vaguely likened to humans, scorpions, and swords (which themselves suffer disturbing amounts of BodyHorror) before [[MirrorMatch assuming the player's form]]. More shocking still, [[InterfaceScrew it blocks out its HP gauge with amorphous black masses]]. Finally, after being whittled down to its final form, it turns into an literal [[EldritchLocation fortress of dark matter]] before reverting to a form appearing similar to a Smash Ball (which is still capable of killing you).

** ''Every'' demon is technically this, even those that resemble humans. They're masses of energy given thought and shape by belief (whether it comes from humans or otherwise, even other demons, really doesn't matter), from the lowliest Slime, to the highest deities of every pantheon.

* ''VideoGame/MegaManZX'' brings us [[ArtifactOfDoom Model W]], the original [[TransformationTrinket Biometal]]. Created from the remains of the space station [[KillSat Ragnarok]], it is a sentient, twisted hunk of metal that [[MookMaker creates Mavericks]], [[WorldGoneMad warps the landscape around it into something out of nightmares]], and [[TheCorruption corrupts anyone who stays in contact with it for too long]]. [[spoiler:It's ultimate form, the {{Ouroboros}}, is what can only be described as a LivingShip [[WombLevel with pulsating insides]]]]. Fitting, [[spoiler:as the [[SoulJar intelligence within it is that of Dr. Weil]], arguably [[CompleteMonster the evilest villain in Mega Man history]]]].

* Gohma Vlitra and [[spoiler:Chakravartin]] from ''AsurasWrath'' are relatively hard to comprehend, especially when the latter [[spoiler: changes into its final form.]] The extra materials even say that their gender and age are unknown.

** To a lesser extent, Groudon, Kyogre, and Rayquaza. Ancient, slumbering entities responsible for the environment, they're millions of years old and, when awoken (well, not Rayquaza), start to cause the end of the world. Expies of the Behemoth, Leviathayn, and Ziz, who are cosmic horrors on their own, they may very well be Pokemon [[Franchise/CthulhuMythos Great Old Ones to the Creation Trio's Outer Gods.]]

* Yog-Shoggoth, AKA [[spoiler: Dr. Norrington]] from ''VideoGame/SamAndMaxTheDevilsPlayhouse'', is explicitly stated to be an Elder God, and is built up to be just as mind-breakingly horrifying as any other example on this page. [[When we get to see him, it's a bit underwhelming. He's embedded in Paiperwaite's torso, and can do nothing but move his head and arms. Coupled with his gruff British accent and generally refined nature, it's not a very threatening sight. He boasts that his true form is much more terrifying, though.]] ** [[spoiler: Junior, the original "owner" of the Devil's Playbox, plays this trope completely straight appearance-wise, but his behavior more resembles a spoiled toddler than anything.]]
