* ''FanFic/ThePalaververse'': Numerous sea monsters are known to lurk in Theia’s oceans, including carnivorous whale sharks, angel sharks capable of temporary flight, and schools of skeletal bonefish. The deepest, most chaotic abysses beneath the Burning Mountains and the Black Ocean host even stranger things, from colonies of literal spider crabs that spin webs across ocean trenches to Lovecraftian horrors to wild metal-eating Smoozes.

* Livyatan melvillei is a prehistoric sperm whale named after both the leviathan and Moby Dick via Melville. It earns the name by having the largest teeth of any known organism. It ate other whales and probably competed with Megalodons. Yikes.

* The very first one in history was the 600-million-year-old ''Anomalocaris'', frequently dubbed the world's first apex predator. It was only about a meter long, but in comparison to the other creatures of the period, that's {{Kaiju}}-sized. Some of its relatives were pretty big too like the filter-feeding Aegirocassis, which was 2 meters long.
* Research done in 2014 revealed that {{Stock Dinosaur|s}} ''Spinosaurus'' was likely a freshwater variant on this trope, using short, ducklike limbs to paddle its way through rivers and eating large fish out of the water with its long crocodile-like jaws. For reference, ''Spinosaurus'' itself was ''sixty feet long''.

* ''{{VideoGame/Subnautica}},'' naturally. As of now, there are four "leviathan-class" creatures which are utterly enormous, and three of them are extremely hostile. There's also the reefbacks, which are so big that [[MeaningfulName small ecosystems]] [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin grow on their backs]].

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 Hydra from the very first game and the very first boss. It is a serpent with lots of heads just like in ClassicalMythology, the games are based on.
