* ''[[VideoGame/{{Momodora}} Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight]]'' has the Arthropod Demon Edea, who appears as the first boss in the game.
* ''VideoGame/MonsterWorldIV'' has an Oomukade as the boss of the Tower of Silence. She's a WarmUpBoss, as she only has one attack and goes down with a dozen stabs.

* [[FinalBoss Calamity Ganon]] from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' looks like an EldritchAbomination mash-up of a zombified Ganondorf and a giant demonic centipede, mixed up with various ancient Guardian parts and weapons.

** Millipedes avert this more often than centipedes do; they are mostly harmless compared to centipedes, as they aren't as aggressive and are not predators (they're [[HerbivoresAreFriendly herbivores]] and [[GentleGiant generally docile]] as long as you don't frighten them, which will prompt them to secrete poison depending on the species).

Granted they also can't bite humans (their jaws are only useful for chewing on plant matter and are too small and weak to pierce human flesh) and are almost completely blind.

* ''Arthropleura'', an arthropod from the Carboniferous period and the largest known land-dwelling invertebrate, is basically a [[UpToEleven human-sized]] centipede, thanks to the higher amounts of oxygen in its time period. Up to 8.5 feet in length, it's practically Godzilla when compared to modern centipedes and millipedes. The largest true centipede ever was ''Euphoberia'', which reached a more modest three feet in length (but you still wouldn't want something like that living in your basement).

* In a [[NeverTrustATrailer Teaser Trailer]] for the ''[[{{Film/Godzilla2014}} Godzilla (2014)]]'' film, it featured a gigantic Centipede-{{Kaiju}} [[WhatCouldHaveBeen that supposedly Godzilla would have done battle with]]. However, when the actual movie was released, [[DeletedScene the Centipede-monster was no where to be found]].

* There's a giant Giant centipedes scene appear in the Peter Jackson version of ''Film/KingKong2005''.''Film/KingKong2005''. According to ''[[AllThereInThemanual The World of Kong: A Natural History of Skull Island]]'', there are actually several species of giant centipedes on Skull Island, with the biggest ones being capable of killing and eating baby dinosaurs.



* The Hundred Eyed Demon King from ''Literature/JourneyToTheWest'' is a centipede-based demon, who can master [[LightIsNotGood light and fire]] and fight with a sword. Sun Wukon is forced to summon forth Pilanpo Boddhisatva, to whom he surrenders.

* The TV series ''Series/{{Primeval}}'' also has an arthropleurid (thought by most fans to be an ''Arthropleura'') in the first season. If centipedes weren't bad enough, this one is aggressive and afraid, making it very liable to lash out, has a deadly venomous bite, and is frakking ''fifteen feet long!'' It's also a herbivore, so it won't eat you; you're in for a long, slow death...

** One of the earliest monsters introduced in Dungeons & Dragons is the Carrion Crawler, a bloated four-foot-long EldritchAbomination centipede with eight drooling tentacles on its maw. Luckily, as their name implies they're normally scavengers ... but will attack adventurers if food is scarce or [[MamaBear if its young is threatened]].

** Another D&D classic is the Remorhaz, a forty-foot-long centipede-like monster found in polar regions that has a body temperature rivaling ''molten iron'' and eats nearly any living creature it can find, up to and including frost giants and woolly mammoths. When you get swallowed whole by this thing (one of its favourite tactics), you're not only digested by its acids, but burned by its scalding insides.

** One episode showed Ice King owning a monstrous centipede made of ice named Icepede. It was actually quite unruly and was just as happy trying to clamp its pincers on Ice King's head as it was attacking Finn.

* The Wiggler from the ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' franchise combines the concept of a Creepy Centipede with a RidiculouslyCuteCritter ... although Wigglers get a lot less cute if you [[BerserkButton knock off their head flowers]].

The Mecha-Wiggler in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey'', on the other hand, is the stuff of nightmares. And it can create portals to ambush Mario from angles where he least expects it.



* Regular centipedes not creepy enough? Meet the ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scutigera_coleoptrata Scutigera coleoptrata]]'' (house centipede).

** Later we are introduced to Fluorite, [[spoiler:an "off-color" [[FusionDance gem fusion]] of six different gems. Subverted in that although her appearance is meant to at least be semi-disturbing, she's actually incredibly kind and non-aggressive, and in fact resembles more of a caterpillar than a centipede]].
