*** [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Female_symbol The glitch Pokemon]] whose name is only represented as a female symbol gets a special mention. It has an endless cry that actually sounds like a bizarre twisted song, its base stats are second only to [[CrystalDragonJesus Arceus]], it looks like [[VideoGame/EarthBound Giygas]], and finally, it ''weighs 3 tons and is 80 feet tall''. This pokémon is so eldritch that if sent to battle, even the battle menu will be covered by a black glitch screen.
** 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 "with its 1000 arms" largely by accident then went to sleep for a few billion years.

** 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, Leviathan, 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.]]

** The Bad Egg, [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique which you can get]] [[NoFairCheating by cheating.]] [[TheVirus They can turn other Pokemon into Bad Eggs.]] They're actually ''playable.'' And when they hatch... all you see is an egg, and then the game freezes. [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm Did the player]] GoMadFromTheRevelation?!
** ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonGatesToInfinity'' has [[spoiler:the Bittercold, a non-sentient crystalline entity that embodies the negative feelings of all the Pokemon in the world and feeds upon said feelings to strengthen itself (which is a bit of a problem considering [[CrapsaccharineWorld the game's setting]])]]. Pokemon suffocate simply from being near it and it ends up growing powerful enough to threaten the world's very existence.
** ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' introduces mysterious non-Pokemon monsters known as the Ultra Beasts. UB-01 is a shape-shifting glass jellyfish whose movements "resemble that of a young girl".

* The ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' pantheon has Ahg-Za-Haru, an unknowable, mindless singularity of pure hedonistic [[ItsAllAboutMe selfishness]] and Tholaghru, a world-sized, slavering and utterly insane chaotic god-being responsible for most of the setting's BodyHorror. Tlacolotl, the third evil member of the pantheon, is [[HumansAreBastards all too human]].

*** The spin-offs introduce other similar representatives:
*** The ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4 Arena}} series has [[spoiler: Hi-no-Kagutsuchi]], the collective will of those who abandon all connections, and strive to live only for themselves.

** In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', many things from beyond the TV screen count, as do [[spoiler:Izanami]], who is another representative of humanity's collective unconscious, specifically the willingness to lie and desire to run away from truth.

** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' continues the trend with [[spoiler: Yaldabaoth]], the embodiment of the collective desire to maintain social order, regardless of the costs or actual morality of such actions.

** Recently, along with the theory that [[spoiler:Chara is the narrator of all routes and is only corrupted by the player in a Genocide Run]], another character has become a strong contender. It's [[spoiler:YOU, the player]]. A being [[BlueAndOrangeMorality beyond comprehension in the eyes of the other characters]], the same species as the creator of the world, [[KarmaHoudini utterly beyond punishment]] and [[RealityWarper capable of altering reality with ease]]. Powers include [[DemonicPossession possessing children]], [[RetCon returning lost beings back into existence]], resetting the world, SaveScumming and, yes, [[ScrewDestiny even undoing what cannot be undone]]. No one can understand why such a being would do what it does.[[note]]Only Sans and Chara in a Genocide Run seem to come close to understand the motivations of someone who would slaughter everyone just to have a HundredPercentCompletion.[[/note]] The only one who seems to be aware that [[spoiler:you're a human from outside their world is Chara, who at the end of a Genocide Route states that the "human SOUL" and "determination" were yours]].

** 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).

** ''Warcraft'' also features the Old Gods (of which the Faceless are servants), which are {{Shout Out}}s to Lovecraftian entities. They are behind some of the truly nastier fellows who originated in Azeroth, such as corrupting Neltharion into Deathwing along with his entire dragonflight, corrupting Queen Azshara, the most powerful Night Elf sorceress, and creating the Naga, the silithid, the qiraji, the mantid and the nerubians. They're also the (partial) creators of Humans, some Giants, Dwarves, Gnomes, and Troggs by using their parasitic weapon, the Curse of Flesh, designed to make its targets more like them and less like the original seed races.
