** [[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.

Subtrope of OurMonstersAreDifferent and OurMonstersAreWeird. 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.

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]], [[FreudWasRight genitalia]], [[EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods animals with tentacles]], or [[CelestialBody celestial bodies]].

* The ''Nemesis'' roller coaster at Ride/AltonTowers amusement park in the UK (being the titular Nemesis). Nemesis comes from another dimension, a dimension beyond our imagination. There are theories, and then there is the legend... Beneath the ground at Alton Towers, something strange and horrible lurked: a creature put on the Earth 2 million years ago. The creature was disturbed during maintenance work on one of the other rides in Forbidden Valley. The creature, angry at being discovered, caused havoc, ripping up trees and buildings, sending them hurtling skyward. A security silence fell over Alton Towers as historians, archaeologists, and the Ministry of Defence nervously began some serious investigations. What they discovered was Nemesis. It had to be controlled - 250 tonnes of steel and 200 men pinned down Nemesis. The steel holding down the monster was twisted and bent into unusual shapes - the steel was the roller coaster track thrill seekers ride today - Nemesis. In a promotional comic released to advertise the ride, said creature had its own cult with its own TomeOfEldritchLore.

Native to Creator/HPLovecraft's CosmicHorrorStory genre, the Eldritch Abomination has become a mainstay of {{horror}} and {{fantasy}} works, along with numerous others that [[{{Mythopoeia}} derive inspiration]] from Lovecraft. They are often used as a GreaterScopeVillain, OutsideContextVillain, MadGod, [[GodOfEvil Evil God]] or SealedEvilInACan. As they are defined by existing outside reality as we conceive it, most also come from somewhere beyond the stars or [[TimeAbyss before the dawn of time]] or [[EldritchLocation outside our universe]].
