* ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall'': The Entity plotline is a long CosmicHorrorStory. Ultimately, [[spoiler:the Entity consumes all people on Earth, and Linkara has no way to defeat it... until he successfully pulls off a TalkingtheMonsterToDeath, restoring the world back to normal]].

* ''FanFic/GrimTalesFromDownBelow'', despite being an ostensibly DarkerAndEdgier sequel to WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy, gets a rather happy ending. Of course, the fact that [[spoiler:many of the monsters, demons, god-things and assorted freaks and creeps are on the side of the [[strike:heroes]] protagonists probably helps...]]

** The Universal Survival Saga ups the Lovecraft aspects by having Zen'o decide to [[spoiler: eliminate the losing universe during the tournament]]. Meaning, trillions upon trillions of people will [[spoiler: be wiped from ''existence'' because they lost a tournament]].

** The Hardmode end boss is literally Cthulhu. While incredibly hard initially, it doesn't stop you from farming him for materials to make the endgame items.

** There is also the implication that civilizations inevitably annihilate themselves after reaching a certain level of advancement (which is why there are so ''many'' Lost Logia around). It is perhaps telling that the ur-{{Precursor}} civilization in in this series shares a name with the author of the ''[[CthulhuMythos Necronomicon]]'' (Al-Hazred).

* Despite ''FanFic/TheBridge'' having a hopeful outlook with genuinely good heroes all around, it recasts [[spoiler: Bagan]] as the BigBad and gives it many traits often found in the CthulhuMythos. Ancient entity older than anyone else? Check. Operates on a morality system [[BlueAndOrangeMorality way off the mark]]? Check. Incredibly powerful and having abilities that come off as downright eldritch compared to things from both Equestria and Terra? Check. However, despite its immense power and claims of being a deity; we know it was sealed away for over 70,000 years so it ''can'' be defeated. And [[spoiler:he has an Equestrian counterpart just as powerful, but [[GoodCounterpart opposite in morality]].]]

* Fritz Leiber's short story "To Arkham and the Stars" is an interesting twist on the original CthulhuMythos. Set several decades after Lovecraft's own stories, many of their surviving protagonists have learned that there are positive sides to the cosmic forces they once dreaded, and have established friendly relations with several Mythos species. The overall atmosphere is positive and hopeful for the future, a total inversion of all the original stories referenced. And in a strange way it kind of works.

Since part of the ''definition'' of the Cosmic Horror Story is that mankind has no chance at even [[GoMadFromTheRevelation comprehending the hideous Truth of the universe]], let alone fighting it; any series where someone can [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu defeat Eldritch Abominations]] is usually closer to Lovecraft Lite than Cosmic Horror Story (although there are exceptions; after all, one of Lovecraft's lesser themes was that, but for a few exceptions, none of the horrors seen in his stories were any more import than humanity (zero is not greater than zero, after all), and thus just as subject to having their plans go awry as humans).

Said infighting even occurring actually causes a glaring flaw in Zenith's being to exist; his mortal heart, originally severed from his past body, is now restored, and thus if his mortal heart is destroyed, he can actually be killed. {{Subverted}} in the fact that while Zenith ''has'' survived far worse, Zenith's body is completely paralyzed in the aftermath even if the potential exists for him to return; [[TheMaker Ultima]], his youngest sibling who was responsible for the original seal that prevented Zenith from causing trouble before, now possessed a much stronger power than the first time which allows him to permanently seal Zenith away in his {{Hellfire}} EldritchLocation. The prospect of actually exploring said place, however, definitely comes into play when Zenith's son, [[TokenEvilTeammate Darigus]], is a native of said DeathWorld.]]
