** The Outer Gods seem to personify the cosmic forces of the universe, but they're still mostly uncaring towards humanity. With the exception of Nyarlathotep, their messenger, who's actively malicious (and basically Satan).
** The Great Old Ones are, for the most part, just treated as vast, unknowable alien beings who are waiting in hibernation to reclaim their control of the Earth. Cthulhu itself fits in here.
** The Elder Gods could be considered the Great Old Ones' GoodCounterpart (or good enough, really). While the Old Ones are utterly unknowable and terrifying, the Elder Gods are helpful to humanity and familiar (they live in the Dreamlands and many of them are from real-world mythologies).
*** It might be important to note that the distinctions between these groups are not outlined in Lovecraft's works, so they may not be what he had originally intended.

%%* PsychologicalHorror* PsychologicalHorror: Much of focus is on the emotional and mental state of the human protagonists as they delve deeper and deeper into the Mythos. Insanity is often as common as fate as death. Those lucky few who live tend to be broken by their experiences.

*** In Creator/RobertBloch's story "The Shadow From the Steeple" (considered [[FanonDisContinuity out of canon by some]]) it gets better: after a ''serious'' blunder by a university professor attempting to contain it, it [[GrandTheftMe takes over his body]], therefore becoming almost unaffected by light, changes the man's field of expertise to theoretical physics, then joins the Manhattan project so we'll succeed in creating a weapon that could actually annihilate us. It's also an avatar of the god Nyarlathotep, [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast The Crawling Chaos]].
