* Creator/HPLovecraft is famous for it. To give only ''some'' examples:
** The Mi-Go: ''They were pinkish things about five feet long; with crustaceous bodies bearing vast pairs of dorsal fins or membraneous wings and several sets of articulated limbs, and with a sort of convoluted ellipsoid, covered with multitudes of very short antennae, where a head would ordinarily be.''
-->The Whisperer in Darkness
** The Shoggoth: ''Formless protoplasm able to mock and reflect all forms and organs and processes - viscous agglutinations of bubbling cells - rubbery fifteen-foot spheroids infinitely plastic and ductile - slaves of suggestion, builders of cities - more and more sullen, more and more intelligent, more and more amphibious, more and more imitative!''
-->At the Mountains of Madness
** The Great Race of Yith:'' were immense rugose cones ten feet high, and with head and other organs attached to foot-thick, distensible limbs spreading from the apexes. They spoke by the clicking or scraping of huge paws or claws attached to the end of two of their four limbs, and walked by the expansion and contraction of a viscous layer attached to their vast, ten-foot bases.''
-->The Shadow Out of Time

* A lot of awakened beings in ''Manga/Claymore'' especially the most powerful ones.
** Among them Cassandra particulary stands out. She is a giant naked woman body without head. The human sized torso of Cassandra spawns between the boobs and there are tens of tentacules each terminated with a flesh-eating huge head of Cassandra. Oh and it moves by crawling on its back

* ''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': The source of all monster are the mutations caused excessive exposure to {{mana}}. Mana comes from the goddess, Lady Chaos. Thus, the monsters spawned are very weird indeed.

* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' managed quite a few of these as one of its goals was to showcase the work of the Creator/JimHenson Creature Shop.

* ''VideoGame/WarioLand'' has a few of these, although the King Bubble thing from ''VideoGame/WarioLandII'' (which is a giant, evil water bubble) and Cuckoo Condor somewhat come to mind here. And ''VideoGame/WarioWorld'' has some really, ''really'' weird bosses. There's the clown that tosses his detachable heads at you, and whose real face is on his stomach, a giant-headed ice spirit-child thing that breathes ice, a giant chess piece, the giant green dinosaur that wears a bikini, lipstick and jewelry, as well as having long, blond, wavy hair and so on.
