** ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'' has [[spoiler: the Demon Pillars/Demon Gods of the ArsGoetia. As the first name indicates, they appear as a giant pillar of putrid black flesh, encircled at intervals by glowing red eyes. Even without any apparent mouth, they are able to vocalize-- a distorted, inhuman ''shriek''.]]

Subtrope of OurMonstersAreDifferent and OurMonstersAreWeird. {{One Winged Angel}}s have a tendency to be Eldritch Abominations. For Eldritch Abominations with a specific appearance, see AdorableAbomination, AnimalisticAbomination, HumanoidAbomination, and MechanicalAbomination. For specific storylines involving Eldritch Abominations, see the DidYouJustIndexCthulhu page. Compare with GodOfEvil, TheOldGods, ParadoxPerson, and StarfishAliens. Note that a monster being really powerful, weird or ugly is not, in and of itself, an example of this trope. The monster must break the established internal logic of the work.

Thanks to the nature of this trope, potential RealLife examples are very vague and questionable at best. So Administrivia/NoRealLifeExamplesPlease

Physically, the Eldritch Abomination is only defined by seeming [[UncannyValley somehow “off”]], hinting at their [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm incomprehensible nature]]. They can range from {{humanoid|Abomination}} to {{animalistic|Abomination}} to [[AlienGeometries physically impossible]] to [[MindScrew inconceivably bizarre]]. However, common physical characteristics include similarities to [[BodyHorror internal organs]], genitalia, [[EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods animals with tentacles]], or [[CelestialBody celestial bodies]].

** [[BigBad Makuta]] was described like this as first - a kicking, screaming, lashing ''thing'' of pure malevolence. As a Makuta he has the ability to shape shift into any form and can create Rahkshi from his own flesh, which are considered as his sons. Then he got [[RetCon retconned]] into a MagnificentBastard [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]] more akin to [[[{{Satan}} The Devil]] than anything Lovecraftian, and Greg Farshtey himself has [[WordOfGod stated]] that he prefers Makuta this way.
