** The Lady of Pain from the ''TabletopGame/{{Planescape}}'' setting. Beyond her vaguely humanoid appearance (a ten foot floating humanoid in a robe with no visible feet and a frozen female face surrounded by a crown of blades), nobody knows anything about what or who she is, save that anyone who disrupts Sigil's day-to-day life or directly interacts with her in any way tend to get FlayedAlive on the spot. Inside of Sigil she is essentially omnipotent and not even gods can set foot there if she doesn't want them there. [[spoiler: It's hinted in 3rd edition that she's an overdeity, just like Ao and mysterious Serpent.]]

* ''Series/ChannelZero: Candle Cove'' has both the Tooth Child (an animate being literally made of human teeth, which turns out to be [[spoiler: an avatar for the spirit of [[PhysicalGod Eddie Painter]]]]) and the ''[[ShowWithinAShow Candle Cove]]'' character Jawbone (specifically when we see his true "Skin-Taker" form [[spoiler: in [[EldritchLocation Eddie's Realm]]]]).

** ''No-End House'' has the beings inhabiting the [[EldritchLocation titular house]]. They are perfect copies of the loved ones of the people who enter the house, but if you spend enough time around them, you realize that [[UncannyValley things are just off]] about how they act. There's also the fact that they're cannibalistic monsters who [[AbstractEater conjure up and eat]] the memories of their victims. And if they don't do so after enough time, they start to degenerate into zombie-like creatures.

* Wall-Mart, a [[CaptainErsatz "fictional"]] chain store in the ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "Something Wall-Mart This Way Comes". Wall-Mart is actually portrayed as a complete Eldritch Abomination in the episode, being an abstract entity from beyond that exists [[AsLongAsThereIsEvil as long as there is consumerism]] and poisons every town in which it manifests itself. Near the end of the episode however, it temporarily [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith takes on human form]] (looking a lot like Creator/VincentPrice, oddly enough) so it can talk to Stan and Kyle. Played for laughs at the climax with the Vincent Price-thing [[LaughingMad laughing maniacally]] and declaring [[OneWingedAngel "Now you shall see me as I truly am!"]] - but all he does is tear off his gray mustache, then take off his white hat and wave it around wildly as the store around them collapses like a cave-in at a mine shaft.

** Later on in the series, the series's trope naming instances of TheyKilledKennyAgain was {{Deconstructed}}, via CerebusRetcon, because of Kenny being one. Because of some NoodleIncident involving a cult dedicated to Cthulhu, Kenny has ResurrectiveImmortality.

* ''Film/Wishmaster:'' The Djinn in human form has something distinctly off about him. Even when he's charming he comes off as supremely creepy, and even if one didn't know it already, the feeling that something monstrous lurks right underneath that face is ever present.

* [[BigBad Grandmaster]] [[EmperorScientist Meio]] from ''VideoGame/{{Strider}}''. In the first game and ''Strider 2'', he's basically a floating cloak with a head and hands, there's no visible body in there ''even though the cloak is open in the front'', and his hands simply blend into the darkness inside it. The 2014 ''Strider'' version shows him with a flat worm-like and fleshy body covered in red veins hanging from inside his cloak, with instestine-like tubes connected into it from behind. In the end of the game, it is revealed to be [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith a form he takes to appear to his subordinates on Earth]], with his [[OneWingedAngel true form]] being a gigantic EldritchAbomination known as Meio Prime.

** Counter Guardians look as human as the other Servants but are arguably even weirder. These beings aren't heroes in the traditional sense. They are the agents of Alaya, the collective will of humanity itself, and are deployed whenever something threatens humanity. Unleashing them is the equivalent of deploying a tactical nuke on the part of Alaya, and often ends with equivalent collateral damage. On certain occasions, Counter Guardians are willing to, and ''have'', killed thousands of people to save humanity as a whole.

* [[EvilKnockoff Dark Samus]], the main antagonist of the ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'' trilogy, resembles a black, biomechanical version of Samus Aran. She began as the titular Metroid Prime, a Metroid mutated by prolonged exposure to [[ToxicPhlebotinum Phazon]] and prophesied by the Chozo as [[PlanetEater the Worm]]. Following Metroid Prime's defeat at the hands of Samus, it merged with her Phazon Suit and came back as a twisted doppelganger bent on [[TheVirus spreading Phazon throughout the universe]] and even other dimensions, and was unkillable as long as Phazon existed.
