* The ''Event Horizon'' from [[Film/EventHorizon the movie of the same name]], in its mutated, EldritchAbomination form, ''definitely'' counts. A vessel warped into a tortured consciousness by exposure to a [[HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace hellish extradimensional realm]]. The interior design of the ship has [[{{Bizarrchitecture}} odd cybergothic architecture, including an extremely strange "central core" and the "meat grinder corridor" leading to it, as well as numerous spikes and other elements of rather terrifying aesthetic]] (some of which, like the "meat grinder corridor," are handwaved as being essential to the ship's operation). It's definitely one of the weirdest human-designed ships on this list, even before being [[spoiler: possessed by extradimensional evil]]. It's also one of the closest examples on this list to an ISOStandardHumanSpaceship, despite being simultaneously ''this'' trope.

* In ''Manga/{{Guyver}}'', it turns out that the relics beneath the various Chronos headqarters are bizarre starships operable by Guyver-unit-wearing pilots. Oh, and their escape pods give the attached Guyver a SuperMode.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/LostUniverse'': The "Lost Ships" are a bunch of ships made of super-advanced LostTechnology -- the BigBad Black Star fits here because of just how ''alien'' it is (with a Take Over The Universe or Kill Everybody Trying A.I. mentality) and the hero's ship "Swordbreaker" is one of these, retrieved by Kane Blueriver's grandma from places unknown and implied to have been modified greatly in order to remove the more "eldritch" parts of it (and even then, a couple of episodes' conflict occurs because of said parts acting up, doing stuff like turning all of the corridors within the ship into an ever-changing maze).

** Space Hulks are technically ships in the sense that they can still move and are used as transport by several factions but as Warp-created fusions of numerous ships of varying origin and design they are certainly Eldritch.

Normally they hold Orks, daemons of Chaos, worshipers of Chaos, Chaos Space Marines, Tyranids, Genestealers, Tyranids and Genestealers, and anyone forced to go in there to clear it out/find whatever Archeotech is left/can't go anywhere else. Some Hulks are so massive that they even have their own gravity and atmosphere.

* Thank to reality warping technologies, all spaceships are a ''little'' weird in the ''Literature/{{Uplift}}'' series. Even those species that don't care for the technology need to employ a means of defense. Those who enjoy the technology get ''really'' weird. Everything is, at the core, the same design. However, everybody has their own variants, depending on their design philosophy and most especially their liking for probability technology. Some species' ships are pretty much ISO Standard. Others, like the maniac Tandu, have ships that are "Lobster Spaceship"-style bizarre spidery things, and probably have their hull alloys or even their [[ChaosArchitecture configuration]] altered all the time due to the all the ill-shielded probability tech in their drives and weapons.

->''...something astonishing and strange had happened to Volyova’s ship. The ship had remade itself into a festering gothic caricature of what a starship ought to look like... He had heard of ships being infected with the Melding Plague... but he had never heard of a ship becoming so thoroughly perverted as this one while still, so far as he could tell, being able to continue functioning as a ship.''
