* There's also Shuma-Gorath, a recurring enemy of ''DoctorStrange'', who can best be described as a pile of green tentacles with a giant eye in the middle. As the name and appearance might suggest, he's a lovecraftian chaos entity residing outside our dimension, and is constantly trying to find a way in. He is very unpleasant to deal with to say the least.

* ''Film/NightAtTheMuseum 2'' features an octopus that [[AndroclesLion befriends Larry after he provides it with water]], and happily sploshes into the reflecting pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial.
* In ''Film/OldBoy'', the main character, after spending 15 years locked up, goes to a restaurant and orders "something still alive". He's served an octopus, which he proceeds to chew down while its tentacles squirm all over his face. Watch it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lv_OxuZzIxY here]]. Live octopus is a genuine South-Korean dish (called sannakji), but the critter is supposed to be cut up before serving. In the movie, he just ate it whole.

* The Ogdru Jahad from ''{{Hellboy}}'', being a mix of Lovecraft and Babylonian myths, are often protrayed as enormous tentacled masses beyond our universes borders. They're also the BigBad of the entire setting, are responsible for the creation of Hellboy and have intended for him to bring them into our reality to usher in the End of Days.



* ''Franchise/CthulhuMythos'': The octopus-headed star spawn, and their leader, the Dread Lord C'thulhu, Master of R'lyeh. Creator/HPLovecraft had a strange thing about tentacles and invertebrates in general. There's always, always tentacles, to the extent that anything with tentacles will for better or worse be compared to a Lovecraftian horror. It might be because he was both violently allergic to pretty much all seafood and had something of a phobia about them. The reason there's such a strong "slimy creature from the sea" motif in his monsters is because, to Lovecraft, marine creatures were among the most vile and disgustingly ugly animals in the world.

Of course, the Old Gods arent actually celaphods or anything else that resembles terrestrial life, its just the closest approximation of their true appearance that our brains can understand.

* [[http://www.comicvine.com/octoboss/4005-54336/ Octoboss]], a minor ''{{ComicBook/{{Invincible}}'' villain, is a horrifying anthropomorphic octopus who straddles the line between {{Humanoid Alien}} and {{Starfish Alien}}. His head and hands are all masses of [[{{Super Strength}} super-strong]] {{Combat Tentacles}}. Since ''Invincible'' is in part a [[{{Franchise/SpiderMan}} Spider-Man]] homage, Octoboss is probably based loosely on {{ComicBook/Doctor Octopus}}.
