** The Demons of Inferno also count, being just as nightmarish and incomprehensible as you'd expect a demon to be. And no, LightIsNotGood does not automatically translate into DarkIsNotEvil; unlike the angels, the demons just don't make any secret of being the eldritch monsters they are.

* 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. The [[LightIsNotGood angels]] themselves count, specially Iustitia, one of the cardinal virtues, intentionally designed like a mixture of a carnivorous plant with a tentacle monster with creepy cherubic baby faces everywhere because of its moral ambivalence.

** Dark Matter is an immensely powerful, formless being of evil that corrupts all it touches and is completely invincible, except to special weapons. Further, judging by how often it's reappeared, it appears to be [[FightingAShadow impossible to permanently destroy]] and can only be temporarily defeated. It's [[VileVillainSaccharineShow even creepier when considering the setting]]. Thankfully, it's also far more ''defeatable'' than most major abominations.
** Most ''Kirby'' final bosses are at least somewhat Eldritch. Nightmare is the manifestation of everyone's bad dreams, Dark Mind from ''[[VideoGame/KirbyAndTheAmazingMirror The Amazing Mirror]]'' is an evil mirror demon, and Dark Nebula from ''[[VideoGame/KirbySqueakSquad Squeak Squad]]'' is [[SealedEvilInACan a sleeping Eldritch Abomination]].

abominations. This is compounded in ''Kirby: Planet Robobot'', where a flawed clone of Dark Matter is created by the supercomputer Star Dream. Not only is it stated that trying to comprehend Dark Matter's form required essentially all of its computing power, it ''still'' can only create the swordsman form instead of Dark Matter's true form.
** Zero itself is the core of Dark Matter and is an entity that looks like a gigantic eyeball that has complete and utter control over Dark Matter. It later resurrects itself from death as a surreal-looking FallenAngel to fight Kirby again. It's a threat to entire planets through its control of Dark Matter, and there's absolutely no understanding on what it is or why it does what it does (aside from various fan theories painting it out as a TragicVillain, none of which have any basis in canon).

** Marx. He spontaneously grows plants made entirely out of spikes, can generate knives from nowhere, and can rip himself in half to create a hole to a dimension made entirely out of '''pain'''.
** ''VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamland'' has the final boss, Magolor Soul, the OneWingedAngel of the BigBad. The text implies that the Master Crown has already taken him over and has turned him into a hideous creature.

** Muspahs are bizarre monsters manifested from the dreams of a comatose and [[GooGooGodLike unintelligent]] elder god. They are what the Mahjarrat, a race of {{Humanoid Abomination}}s created by the same elder god, have nightmares about. Said elder god, known as Mother Mah also created Seren (ironically, one of the nicest of the [[JerkassGods gods]]) and Zaros (the most alien of the gods, who when on to create abominations of his own, known as the [[MixAndMatchCritters Nihils.]]). The world she rules over is a DeathWorld.



** [[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.

** [[spoiler:And especially the Amalgamates, which are actually nothing more than normal monsters from the game...but fused and melted together into horrifyingly grotesque and disturbing new forms as a result of Alphys' tragically failed Determination experiment to try and find a way to resurrect the dead. Literally the only thing uglier than their appearances is their origins.]]

*** ''Super Robot Wars Z3: Hakai-hen'' reveals what exactly this is. The Supreme God Z, a large angelic being that has existed for countless cycles, is responsible for creating and ending the universe, and is so powerful that the ''corpse'' of its previous incarnation, Sol, has reality warping powers.

** Arceus itself, who despite being widely thought as the ''Pokemon'' equivalent of God (who has [[EldritchAbomination/MythologyAndReligion His own extensive entry]]) is actually closer to [[Franchise/CthulhuMythos Azathoth]], considering it created the universe largely by accident then went to sleep for a few billion years.
** Dialga and Palkia, Arceus first creations, are Space and Time personified (indeed Time started flowing with Dialga's creation) and their dominion over them is absolute. Their battle in the tenth film had so much power being thrown around that each of their attacks were damaging reality.

* In ''VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent'', you are being followed by these "things" or "shadows" as you explore the castle. You have no weapons/defense other than hiding either, so there is a sense of hopelessness. While their appearance is a blurry/melted shambling humanoid, staring at them for more than a few seconds will cause you to lose sanity (an in game statistic). [[spoiler:Worse, those are just mooks. The journal scraps/notes you find hint that the main bad guy "comes from beyond the void" and "warps reality with its presence", which you experience as you progress through the game and parts of the castle are warped into nightmarish versions, with raw flesh coming out of the walls.]]

They dwell in the Qliphotic, a realm beyond even hell, that has been revealed to be [[spoiler: a dying universe. They dwell within a universe, draining it of all energy and life, then take new avatars in the next universe. And our universe is in their sights as their new home.]]
