* The TropeNamer here should very well be one of [[Creator/HPLovecraft Lovecraft's]] own alien races, the octopoid "[[Franchise/CthulhuMythos star-spawn of Cthulhu]]"' which look much like their master/father/high priest/god.

* The Ood from ''Series/DoctorWho'' are an interesting sort of double subversion in that despite their creepy appearance, they're perfectly cheerful and friendly, but their psychic hivemind also makes them prone to takeover by genuine {{Eldritch Abomination}}s.
** And Dalek Sec after he merges with a human.
* The ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' episode, "The Power Stealer," gave us the aptly named Octophantom.
** ''Series/PowerRangersMysticForce'' has The Master
** Hone no Shitari from ''Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger'' is a tentacle head, as is his American counterpart Octoroo from ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai''.

N Ma / the Master. He starts out as a Lovecraft-esque squid monster, then takes a more humanoid form (with plenty of tentacles) after possessing someone.
** Hone no Shitari from ''Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger'' is pretty much ''is'' a tentacle head, as is his American counterpart Octoroo from ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai''.

A monster with a face of tentacles resembling everyone's favorite EldritchAbomination, [[CthulhuMythos Cthulhu]]. Using the official pronunciation of "Cthulhu" given by Creator/HPLovecraft, the [[StarfishLanguage closest thing to the correct pronunciation]] [[BlackSpeech a human can manage is]] "Khlulhloominoid". Now [[TongueTwister say that five times fast]].

Different variations exist. The being(s) may have tentacled fingers, or they may have completely normal fingers. They almost always have an unusual skin pigmentation such as green, grey, greenish grey, or orange. They might have a beak within their mass of tentacles like a real octopus, or a LampreyMouth concealed among them; alternately, they might have a humanoid mouth just above or below the tentacles. Their strength varies, but they are almost never of the same power level as the EldritchAbomination that inspired them. In fact, they may act nothing at all like the original Cthulhu, but still, expect them to compared to such by fans.

** Spoofed when Leela crawls through the radioactive muck. We see her body with an octopus for a head, and the initial assumption is that she mutated. However, [[{{Foreshadowing}} she is immune]], and when she gets to shore she disgustedly pulls off the octopus that got stuck to her face. Said octopus says (in its best [[Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit Baby Hermann]] voice) that before being mutated it ''[[WasOnceAMan was a little blonde girl named Virginia]]''.

* The Rahkshi in ''{{WesternAnimation/Bionicle}}: The Mask of Light'' could split their faces open to reveal a mass of writhing tentacles.
* In ''{{WesternAnimation/Freakazoid}}'', villain Waylon Jeepers summons a Cthulhu {{Expy}} named "Vorn the Unspeakable", who fits this trope to a "T".

* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'': The Prone have humanoid bodies, but their faces have six eyes, several tentacles on the cheeks and sides of the head, and an enormous cavity where their mouth should be (the actual mouth is suggested to be further in). Doesn't stop one human in the game from falling in love with a Prone woman (who reciprocates).

* Mr. Fane from ''Nocturnals'' is an unusual example in that he looks mostly human, and manages to pass as an ordinary if somewhat eccentric man as long as he keeps the lower half of his face covered. [[DramaticUnmask Underneath that concealing scarf]], though... Well, [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean he really does have the face for tentacles]].
