* In a ''ComicBook/SwampThing'' tie in to ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'', a group of the DC's most powerful magic users, including the god like [[ComicBook/TheSpectre Spectre]], do battle with the Original Darkness, a vast, alien being that existed before the universe. They all fail to impede it, and they eventually make a horrifying discovery: they haven't been fighting the Darkness. They've been fighting ''it's thumb''.

* Series/TheMunsters' pet dragon Spot. Usually, the only thing shown were his glowing eyes and teeth seen under the staircase. When he gets loose in one episode, all we see is the tip of his tail.

* ''VideoGame/{{Dungeons}}'': the sequel has a Demon trap consisting in a massive tentacle poking out of the ground, best placed in the middle of a 3x3 room, that flails at intruders for a while, and can be powered up into a more massive, shelled version. The expansion adds the Undead, who have a similar trap in the form of a gigantic skeletric arm.

* In the ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' series, eventually we see the whole Kraken, but most of the time it's just tentacles rising from the water. A half-version is used in the first film, where a normal-sized appendage (an arm) gets removed from its owner and proceeds to attack Governor Swan on its own.

* Only the limb/tentacle is shown and interacted with, but the rest of the body remains a total mystery.
* While the whole creature is shown later (thus killing the suspense part), its appendages are shown before and moving independently on their own, as if they were a different monster altogether.

** In ''Film/Tremors5Bloodlines'', it turns out they ''are'' separate creatures, at least in the African Graboid species (it's never explained why they were tentacles before and now they're not).
