There are also plenty of smaller (but still large) creatures that evoke the image of a sea monster, many of which are also happy to hunt you down if they get wind of you.

* The ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' world has buckets of these, as detailed in the Seas of Blood supplement to the early 90s naval warfare spin-off Man'O'War and the 2011 Pirate-themed spin-off Dreadfleet. Warhammer's giant sea monsters include the classic giant squid Kraken and the horrific Black Leviathan (a humongous deep-sea angler fish that could swallow small ships whole), as well as the Narwhal-like Behemoth, the giant crab Promethean the Sea Dragon, the giant merman Triton, the Sea Elemental and the giant shark Megalodon. Dreadfleet has its own zombie sea monsters -- the Sea Giant, Bone Hydra and Leechwyrm -- and even a ship made from the rotting undead carcass of an Orb Leviathan (possibly the same species as Man'O'War's Black Leviathan, maybe not). Finally smaller, but still huge, sea monsters are available from Forge World to use in land-based Warhammer armies in the shape of the Merwyrm and its variants, and the Dark Elf army has access to aquatic Hydras and the abyssal tentacled fiend Kharybdis.

* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'':
** Sea monsters are a kind of creature that spawn in evil oceans (any biome can be good, neutral or evil in-game). As the game is text-based they don't have a visible appearance, but the game describes them as having multiple eyes and arms, as well as two pincers. They're fearsome enough in the sea, but cannot move if stranded on land. When dwarves like them, they do so for "their horrifying freakish appearance".
** There are also sea serpents, which resemble limbless dragons and can spawn in any ocean.

* The Shiguras from ''VideoGame/DarkCloud2'', extremely reminiscent of {{Pokemon}}'s Lapras. [[MadScientist Dr. Jaming]] intends to use them as tools for his own nefarious purposes, and goes as far as to enslave one of them, Pau's friend, Shingala.

** The sea goats, a.k.a. [[FanNickname goatdads]], giant, amphibious half-goat half-fish creatures that can move on land like a seal. One was Gamzee's [[ParentalNeglect always absent]] parent. Jake English later met another, which proved to be extremely vicious and aggressive.

** Heck, Franchise/{{Godzilla}} himself certainly applies. In [[Film/{{Gojira}} the first film]], he's even shown sleeping underwater. ''Film/{{Godzilla 2014}}'' reinforces this aspect of his nature by having the rapid-fire opening credit sequence juxtapose antique artistic depictions of sea monsters in books and maps with {{Retraux}} footage of Godzilla swimming around in TheFifties.

* There's AlwaysABiggerFish on [[Film/ThePhantomMenace Naboo.]] First, there's the Opee Sea Killer, a bizarre fish-crab hybrid that eats with a long, sticky tongue. Then, there's the larger Colo Claw Fish, a giant sea serpent with clawlike appendages used to capture smaller creatures (including baby Sea Killers, which can however [[HoistByHisOwnPetard chew out of a Claw Fish's stomach to escape]]). And finally, there's the Sando Aqua Monster, the [[{{Kaiju}} biggest predator]] in Naboo, who can and will eat almost anything (including the aforementioned Colo and Opee) that stands in its way.

* ''Literature/TheWitchlands'' has sea foxes, which are giant, carnivorous sea serpents with heads of foxes. They're attracted to the scent of blood in the water and can crush ships in pursuit of their prey. Most people consider them mythical, but Safi, Iseult and Merik encounter - and are nearly killed by - two of them when they're sailing to Lejna.

* Kraken herself shows up as a boss in a few ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games. ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' also features a few since your characters are now able to fight underwater. Geosgaeno who is one of the first fiends you fight definitely qualifies - he's a BonusBoss later in the game. The GiantFlyer Evrae turns into this the second time you fight him, though he's also a zombie. There's also a couple of Sinspawn fiends that you have to fight underwater.

* ''VideoGame/EndlessOcean: Blue World'' features several prehistory-dating creatures to be encountered, one of whom even tries to attack you. There's also lots of benign marine life which have monster-esque names, such as a large giant squid named "Kraken Jr." and an albino sperm whale named "Leviathan". Sadly, all of the prehistoric creatures are relegated to cutscenes only and cannot be swam with.
** Actually, Kraken Jr. is the giant squid's child - he's actually quite small, but he may still count since he'll eventually ''grow'' into a giant.
