* Similiarly, MarvelComics' ComicBook/TheThanosImperative has "Many-Angled Ones", thinly-veiled copies of the Mythos' most popular gods, attacking the MarvelUniverse and even defeating some of the Abstracts, who are among Marvel's most powerful beings.

!!General Trivia
* Arkham is loosely based on infamous witch-town Salem, Massachusetts, while Miskatonic University is based on Gordon College (Wenham, Massachusetts) and Arkham Sanitarium (no relation to ArkhamAsylum) is based on Danvers State Hospital in Danvers, Massachusetts. Curiously enough, this means LovecraftCountry is also home to Haverhill, Massachusetts -- one of the inspirations for Archie Comics' Riverdale!

* ''MerkabahRider'' consists of the adventures of a Hascidic Jew who battles demons. However, the overarching story is the invasion of the Outer Gods who are not part of the binary Heaven vs. Hell conflict. The first novel hints that these are Mythos creatures, and this becomes explicit in the second novel. Whether you consider this a crossover depends on whether you see the Rider as his own character, or whether you see it as a Mythos story from the very beginning.

Added DiffLines:

* NamesTheSame: Not only are there both Great Old Ones and Old Ones and Elder Things and Elder Gods and Old Gods, there are mentions of various "old ones" and "elder ones," "ancient ones," and "old things" unconnected to the "codified" entities of those names. In addition, the influence of the Mythos will lead many sci-fi and fantasy authors to use these names for entities in their own universe, with varying degrees of similarity to the originals.

* BasedOnADream: The Nightgaunts were from a nightmare Lovecraft once had, so it's rather fitting they be living in the Dreamlands.
* {{Defictionalization}}: The Necronomicon listed in the Ohio University Library card catalog. Creator/LSpragueDeCamp, fantasy author and linguist, acted as Abdul Alhazred's "translator".

Added DiffLines:

* RunningTheAsylum: An appropriate and positive example - Lovecraft encouraged his fans to use his mythology, and expanded off the concepts within those fics. Indeed, without Lovecraft's fan friends, his work would have drifted into obscurity.

** According to at least one story, The Nestene Consciousness, leader of the [[DemonicDummy Autons]], is actually one of Shub-Niggurath's oft-mentioned but seldom seen [[ExplosiveBreeder 1000 young]]. ClarkAshtonSmith would be proud. To be fair, he(?) really does look the part.
