** The Kraken in the second game. He looks similar to how he looked like in the ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans'' but with classical elements thrown into the mix as well.

* ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'': There's AlwaysABiggerFish on Naboo. First, there's the Opee Sea Killer, a bizarre fish-crab hybrid that catches prey 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.

* In the massive live-action RPG [[ShowWithinAShow tournament]] from ''[[Literature/DreamPark The California Voodoo Game]]'', the aliens responsible for all the weird events were stranded on Earth because they'd grown into adulthood since their ship crashed. Their mature forms were those of massive flatfishes more than 50' long, so they could no longer fit into their spaceship. Too bad the players never made it back up to the roof, to sneak a peek at the swimming pool....

* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'':
** The armored terror (that's the actual in-universe name) is a thirty-foot-long carnivorous fish covered in armor-like scales and provided with a beaklike pair of fangs easily capable of severing limbs. It normally hunts fish in shallow water, but it's perfectly happy to go after boats and people. Physically, it sounds a lot like an oversized ''Dunkleosteus''.
** Benthic knifeooths are serpentine sharks up to twenty feet long. They are aggressive predators and will attack almost any prey they come across, and the mere sight of one swimming near the surface is enough to drive sailors into a terrified panic.

* ''FanFic/ThePalaververse'': Numerous sea monsters are known to lurk in Theias 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.
