* In ''Pandemonium'', the sequel to ''Literature/{{Fragment}}'', the massive underground cave complex in the Urals is home to an ecosystem dominated by bizarre subterranean mollusks. The most disturbing is the puppeteer octopus: a web-tentacled creature that clings to the cave ceiling, drops onto its prey, chews through the victim's nerves with drilling tentacle-suckers, and manipulates the dead carcass like a flesh puppet.

* A giant, red octopus awaits the player at the bottom of the ocean in ''[[VideoGame/WiiPlayMotion Wii Play Motion's]]'' minigame ''Treasure Twirl''. It seems harmless at first, but when you start reeling up with the treasure chests, ''it suddenly appears at the bottom of the screen and comes after you, trying to impede you way up to the surface''. The scary jingle, as well as the suddenness of the whole thing makes the whole thing very frightening.

Added DiffLines:

* Cuttlefishes appear as preys in ''[[VideoGame/FeedingFrenzy Feeding Frenzy: Shipwreck Showdown]]''. They spray ink when they see they are about to get eaten, leaving a dark cloud that will disorient the player, making the playable fish slower and much harder to control.
