* [[http://neurologicalexcretions.blogspot.ca/2013/10/thaumoctopus-mimicus-man-on-beach.html This story]], about [[spoiler:[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mimic_Octopus a Mimic Octopus]] who can imitate Humans ([[UncannyValley albeit unconvincingly]]), and then another or possibly the same one [[ParanoiaFuel who's learned to do it well]].]] While the octopus does try to kill the protagonist, he seems to eventually come to have some small degree of sympathy for it, since its actions were apparently the result of its habitat being overfished by Humanity.

* One of the secondary characters in ''Webcomic/ErrantStory'' has a pet miniature tentacle monster, {{Genre Savv|y}}ily named Rape-kun. Despite the name, he is completely harmless, and oddly cute. It's mentioned that the owner doesn't have the password to unlock Rape-kun's "Adult Mode". Make of that what you will.

* ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'' uses both the "comical" category and the "evil" one. As mentioned above we have Hank from the "comical" category, the "evil" category is taken over by the GiantSquid that Dory, Marlin, and Nemo meet while looking for Dory's family and it attempts to eat Nemo.

* The famously scary giant squid Watcher in the Water from Disney's version of ''Film/TwentyThousandLeaguesUnderTheSea''.''Film/LordOfTheRings'' is definitely this. While the books only showed tentacles leaving the creature's physical appearance unclear, the movie actually shows that it is a gigantic squid/Octopus with a humanoid face.



* Italian movie ''Tentacoli'' features a giant octopus that was stirred up by an underwater tunneling project, and developed a taste for humans.
* ''Film/{{Sharktopus}}'' combines this with ThreateningShark.



* Although whether the creature is actually evil is debatable, the MindRape Saw Gererra's LivingLieDetector Bo Gullet inflicts on its victims in ''Film/RogueOne'' provides some serious NauseaFuel as well as NightmareFuel just by watching the process from the outside. The thing would've been terrifying enough already even without that ability, being a 6-foot tall land-dwelling octopus-thing that menacingly creeps towards you with its wet tentacles eagerly reaching for your temples...

** In ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS7E1SpearheadFromSpace Spearhead from Space]]'' the Nestenes create "a life-form perfectly adapted for survival and conquest on this planet"; it's basically an enormous squid.

* ComicBook/{{Diabolik}} had to fight octopi twice: the first time was when a millionaire, [[GenreSavvy expecting Diabolik's visit]], put his jewels in a chest and the chest in a pool containing seawater and a giant guard octopus (Diabolik [[CombatPragmatist planned to drop a large can of cyanide in the pool]], but found himself in a hurry and had to jump in and knife it to death), while the second time he was peacefully swimming when a wild octopus attacked him (Diabolik knifed this one to death too).

Added DiffLines:

* When [[BigBad N Ma]] from ''Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger'' first breaks free from his [[SealedEvilInACan seal]], he resembles a giant demonic cephalopod. In the final arc of the series, he [[OneWingedAngel transforms]] to a {{Cthulhumanoid}}. In ''Series/PowerRangersMysticForce'', this character is adapted into Octomus the Master.


Added DiffLines:

* Several Mecha in ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' and its adaptation ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' take the shape of a cephalopod.
** ''Series/NinpuuSentaiHurricaneger'' and ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm'' feature a MechaExpansionPack that resembles a giant orthocone, which attaches to the right knee of the Rangers' HumongousMecha, enabling a [[ThisIsADrill Drill attack]].
** ''Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger'' features the Ika Origami (Octo Zord in ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai''), which is another MechaExpansionPack. For the Mecha of the main team, it forms a BladeBelowTheShoulder, a backpack and a shield. For the Mecha of the SixthRanger, it turns into a chestplate and a spear or staff.
** The final Mecha introduced in ''Series/DobutsuSentaiZyuohger'' is Cube Octopus, yet another MechaExpansionPack which gives the main mecha a backpack that allows it to fly by spinning what used to be its tentacles.
