* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': According to some interpretations, Orson represents the blind randomness of a world that has no higher purpose. We can try to look for things like "reasons" or "purpose" as much as we want, or we can make up our own. In the end, the world goes on grinding all the little living creatures into the dust while we search for meaning.

* ''Theatre/LittleShopOfHorrors'' isn't straight-up Cosmic Horror, but it does incorporate some elements of the genre. "[[ManEatingPlant Audrey II]]," the main antagonist, is a {{Starfish Alien|s}} that came from outer space to drive Seymour mad and destroy humanity (although it displays surprisingly human psychology, speech, and behavior, and it breaks Seymour's sanity through subtle mind games and not by being mind-shatteringly eldritch). At the end of the play (and especially at the end of the Director's Cut of [[Film/LittleShopOfHorrors the 1986 movie]]), it's pretty clear that we don't stand a chance against this extraterrestrial threat. Seymour ''really'' shouldn't have meddled in [[TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow things he wasn't meant to know]].

On the other hand, the movie's theatrical ending became closer to LovecraftLite via a FocusGroupEnding.

* ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'': The city of Yharnam and its environs are one big Great One playground, where most humans go insane with horror or bloodlust and the few that remain sane are picked off one-by-one. There's also other eldritch factions that nobody has ANY intel on. That's not even getting into the possibility that [[spoiler:the entire game is a mass hallucination brought on by the dreams of the Great Ones.]] In a bit of a twist, [[spoiler:the Great Ones themselves are generally pretty docile and non-interfering, and some even appear to be trying to ''help'' humanity with this situation. Most of the danger and madness comes from ''human'' factions that have obtained a sliver of the Great Ones' power and are misusing it.]]

* If the said god can destroy the world with a mere finger lift, why hasn't it done this already? Odds are it's probably [[SealedEvilInACan locked away, or locked out.]] And that's where it's [[ApocolypseCult human servants]] come into the frey. Their goal is typically to open the door so that the Big Bad can enter. Expect the cult's leader to be [[TheDragon the secondary villain]], [[ManipulativeBastard very charismatic]]. And there's a good chance that if he's not killed before the Big bad enters, the Big Bad will [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness kill him anyway.]] After all EvilIsNotAToy.
