* The Big Octo from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker''. By ''GOD'', the Big Octo. Basically to sum it up, it's a giant squid that is always preceded by a large flock of seagulls, and will try to suck in your boat if you go near said seagulls, at which point you must attack several places on its body with your boomerang.

* The giant squid from ''Literature/HarryPotter''. It seems to care about the students, as on one occasion Fred + George are seen tickling it, and on another it puts a first year who had fallen into the lake back into the boat.

* The giant squid from ''Literature/HarryPotter''. It seems ''Literature/HarryPotter'' is a rare benevolent example. Living in the lake near Hogwarts, this giant squid is a friendly docile creature who likes to care about play with the students, as on one occasion since Fred + and George are were seen tickling it, its tentacles, accepts food from them and on another it puts a even saved one first year student who had fallen fell into the lake back into water. Writer J.K. Rowling joked that this particular giant squid is actually the boat.[[{{Animorphism}} Animagus form]] of Godric Gryffindor, one of the legendary founders of Hogwarts, still watching over Hogwarts to this day.

** There is only one verifiable story of a giant squid attacking a boat (a rowboat, not a ship), and even then the only reason it was verifiable was because the people attacked brought back proof--a tentacle that a young boy traveling with them chopped off of the animal. In the rare instance a human interacts with a living giant squid these days, the massive cephalopods come off as {{Gentle Giant}}s.
