* The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giant_Squid Giant Squid]]... and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colossal_Squid Colossal Squid]]. Yes, they do exist. While a few stories circulate of boat being attacked by large squid, these creatures are mainly deep-water dwelling creatures, that mostly eat smaller prey. There have been reports of Giant Squid toothmarks on Sperm Whale skins which indicate that the two species regularly fight each other, but since Sperm Whales actively hunt them, these wounds may have been inflicted in self defense.

** The Big Octorok from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheMinishCap'' is technically the same size as the small Octoroks you fight in the overworld, but it becomes this from Link's perspective after he is shrunk to Minish size.
** While the incident happened in the past and isn't portrayed onscreen, ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' has a stone tablet that describes how [[WarriorPrince Prince Sidon]] killed a giant Octorok that was terrorizing Hylian fishers.

* The JonathanCoulton song "I Crush Everything" is sung from the perspective of a giant squid. It suffers from extreme loneliness, because (as the title hints) it can't touch anything without dragging it down to the bottom of the sea and destroying it. And it ''really'' hates dolphins. So, ''sad'' cephalopod.
