** Blink. While Corvo's is relatively is simple, and not too horrifying(unless you're an unlucky guard on a high chaos walkthrough), Emily's version in the Dishonored 2 trailer resembles a grappling hook in usage. If grappling hooks happened to be black tendrils, of course.

** Possession, its not too often when possession is used in a video game. Possession in Dishonored is mostly a normal ability. Except, after you use it, most people and hounds tend to... vomit. This actually stuns them, and is very useful.

** In the Daud expansions to Dishonored, Daud has his own set of powers. Summoning assassins, blinking but freezing time around yourself while using it, sensing runes and bone charms of the eldritch abominations in the world of Dishonored and, oh, right, pull. Sounds normal? You basically use the force to choke your victims when upgraded. Before then, its telekinesis. And you can completely KILL them while using the ability. Did I mention you can give your assassins this ability?

** All of these abilities in Dishonored are unique and all... but there are ten that are marked by the Outsider... and they can give their powers to others(seemingly forever, and they might all have the ability).

* In ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' the character of Pantyhose (yes, really) Tarou is bad enough with his ability to turn into a giant Bull/Yeti-Thing in his first appearance. Just to show how BadAss (or JerkAss more like) he is, he goes and mutates his body more to add tentacles. Obviously, this is form is based on the ''ushi-oni'' of Japanese myth, but that doesn't make it any less freaky.

* ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'' has a few enemies that are the result of this. [[DownloadableContent The Old Hunters]] introduced the means for the player to do it as well, using the Milkweed Rune (an item gained from the mind of a woman who experimented on herself until her head was so bloated with fluid that it was all that was left from her) combined with the [[CombatTentacles Kos Parasite]] (a creature from the carcass of an EldritchAbomination. The end result looks like [[http://bloodborne.wiki.fextralife.com/file/view/milkweed_kos_parasite_trickmode.jpg this]]. One of the weirder things about it is how the dodge animation is changed to make it look as though the player is being [[PeoplePuppets dragged around by their tentacles]].

* The cultists ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'', more specifically those residing in the titular location, gain boons as terribly effective as they are nasty to see. Some are so distorted that they lose their Human typing, and become Eldritch-Beast.

* In the TvShow/DoctorWho fanfic ''Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf'', Rose's ability to connect to the Time Vortex is treated as this. She nearly dies almost every time she uses it, she actually [[CameBackStrong did]] die in the process of gaining it, and it's treated as so terribly ''wrong'' by the other character that Rose chooses to hide it from the Doctor - with disastrous consequences.

* The Wyrm Master from ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' is a demon that has witnessed the thoughts of Tholaghru, a festering pain-ridden botched deity-golem that was a failed experiment by the setting's squabbling gods who managed to claw its way onto the pantheon itself. The Wyrm Master's BodyHorror summoning powers are its attempts to share these revelations with you.

* The ''Whispers of the Old Gods'' expansion in ''VideoGame/HearthstoneHeroesOfWarcraft'' added a lot of new cards that represent pre-existing cards - even Legendaries - imbued with the Old God's power, tentacles and all. Effects range from [[https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Mukla,_Tyrant_of_the_Vale King Mukla]] giving ''you'' Bananas instead of to the opponent, or the [[https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Twisted_Worgen Twisted Worgan]]'s single extra point of Attack.

* The [[BlessedWithSuck "super powers"]] in ''TabletopGame/DontRestYourHead'' allow you to grotesquely violate the laws of physics, causality, or basic logic, in ways ranging from surreal to nauseatingly visceral. Push them too far, though, and each one has its own unique FateWorseThanDeath in store.
