* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': Exploited. TeamPet Morgana is a shapeshifting entity that can move between a regular housecat, a SuperDeformed FunnyAnimal, and a Citroën H Van. He can only be understood by those who have entered the MentalWorld of the Collective Unconscious, an EldritchLocation he has in-depth knowledge on. [[spoiler:His backstory reveals he was created from those same collective human desires by one of the PowersThatBe to help the heroes stop an EldritchAbomination out to eat reality.]]

* From ''{{Kakurenbo}}'', one of the demons, Blood-Taker, is a giant vaguely-mechanical lion-dog. That hunts down children.

* In ''Film/{{The Thing|1982}}'', the monster spends most of its time as an Alaskan pack dog. You catch a glimpse of what it really is, before it proceeds to eat all the other dogs. It also appears very much like a spider/insect-like organism in the [[Film/TheThing2011 prequel]] and in Carpenter's movie it still retains arthropod features like random insect legs. [[spoiler:More horrifyingly, [[Literature/WhoGoesThere in the novel]] that inspired all of this, it is also heavily implied it assimilated an albatross, so it can now fly.]] [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm That said]], there's no way of knowing what it really looks like, if it even has a "true" form at all, rather than being purely amorphous. Heck its nature as an abomination is debatable.
* King Ghidorah, {{archenemy}} of Franchise/{{Godzilla}} is what happens when the villain of a CosmicHorrorStory comes in the form of a giant golden dragon with three heads and a penchant for exterminating entire planets.

*** The film ''GodzillaMothraKingGhidorahGiantMonstersAllOutAttack'' take this even further by having Godzilla as a vengeful zombie-esque monstrosity resurrected by the forgotten souls who died in WWII to punish those who had forgotten them in the modern era. Not even the combined efforts of Mothra, Ghidorah (who happens to be a juvenile Orochi), and Baragon are enough to stop him. Keep in mind that the aforementioned three are considered to be ancient gods themselves.

* One [[MultipleChoicePast possible origin]] for Irys from the ''{{Gamera}}'' franchise falls under this. It suggests that Irys is actually Suzaku (AKA the "Vermillion Bird") of Asian folklore and is the ancient mortal enemy of Gamera (Who is said to represent Genbu the tortoise in this case). Of course, Irys doesn't really look like a bird. Rather, he/she/it looks more like some sort of bipedial creature with spears for arms and numerous tentacles coming out of its back.

* Creator/ClarkAshtonSmith's "The Seven Geases". The Franchise/CthulhuMythos deity Atlach-Nacha resembles a huge, hairy and hideous black spider. From the same author, we also have Tsathogghua and its extended family, who tend to have batrachian looks.

* Literature/TheBible has [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever Behemoth]],[[GiantFlyer Ziz]] and the [[KrakenAndLeviathan Leviathan]]. Also the Second Beast from the Book of Revelation, which is described as bearing many crowns atop many heads, and is variously depicted as as being draconic, catlike or serpentine. [[BigCreepyCrawlies Beelzebub]] and [[MixAndMatchCritters Amon]] are also noteworthy examples.

* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': way too many of the animal-like things in "Tennyo Goes to Hell", given where the story takes place.
* ''WelcomeToNightVale'': [[spoiler:The Beagle Puppy]] in Year Four. He seems cute at first, but as he made more appearances it became clear that he was more than what he seemed. As the year went by it was revealed that [[spoiler:Chad had summoned the Puppy, and that the Puppy]] was responsible for the Strangers coming to Night Vale. Everyone who looks at him gets the sudden urge to get [[spoiler:a dog]] along with an unending need to vomit. In ''Who's a Good Boy? Part 1'', Cecil has the misfortune of seeing what may be his true form, [[spoiler:standing on his hind legs and a not quite dog-like face]] and a horrifying voice. The kicker: his words imply, if not outright state, that [[spoiler:''he is Satan himself'']].

* ''Videogame/DarkestDungeon'': The Ancestor's forays into extraplanar summoning and blood rituals all had pigs as the practice subjects, resulting in a veritable truckload of porcine abominations he later locked up in the warrens, leaving you to deal with them all. The Swine King (the best summoning he could manage; it was a beast alright, but also [[DumbMuscle too stupid to be useful]]) and the Formless Flesh (what happened when he threw all his collective mistakes in this area into a pit, and they merged together) are the worst.

* In Myth/AztecMythology, Cipactli, the monster that dwelled within the PrimordialChaos, is described as a cross between a crocodile, a fish, and a frog, with every limb joint replaced by an extra mouth. It took nothing short of [[TopGod Tezcatlipoca and Quetzalcoatl]] [[EnemyMine working together]] to put it down.

* ''VideoGame/SpookysHouseOfJumpScares'' has Specimen 8, which is a floating deer-like monster resembling a {{Wendigo}} garbed in a cloak and without limbs of any kind. It is able to go through walls and provides the player with some InterfaceScrew in the form of static, as well as various images popping up whenever it manages to deal damage. It attacks prey by [[FateWorseThanDeath absorbing them into it, with its past victims being seen under its cloak]]. Unlike most other examples, Specimen 8 directly addresses the player as it gives chase, speaking with VoiceOfTheLegion.
