* HilariousInHindsight: Lovecraft described Azathoth as a monstrous indescribable thing which resides in the center of the universe, often described as "gnawing" and "chaotic". Scientists now believe that the center of our galaxy (and, by extension, other galaxies), is a supermassive black hole. Perhaps Lovecraft was on to something...

In 1966, Creator/TsuburayaProductions created ''Franchise/UltraSeries'', a {{toku}} series about heroic aliens, also known as giants of light, with many abilities, including shooting powerful beams from their arms. And by sheer coincidence, their homeworld is located in [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messier_78 nebula M78]] in the Orion Constellation.

** Cthulhu has so little role in Lovecraft's work, yet is the most famous now.

** Cthulhu has so little role in Lovecraft's work, yet is the most famous now. The fact that he lent his name to the franchise should be evidence enough.



** Nyarly is this for being one of the only truly evil beings in the Mythos.

to:

** Nyarly is this for being one of the only truly evil beings in the Mythos. And well, being one of the few who is more a character than a force of nature.

* CompleteMonster: [[JerkassGods Nyarlathotep]] differs from most of Creator/HPLovecraft's gods. While Lovecraft describes other Outer Gods and Great Old Ones as [[BlueAndOrangeMorality mindless or unfathomable]], Nyarlathotep is a {{sadist}} who is fully aware of humanity's existence, and enjoys exercising his power over them. He kills or drives people to madness while disguised as the Haunter in the Dark, drives entire societies to ruin in the form of the Black Man or the Black Pharoah, and generally treats all life as part of some giant cat-and-mouse game.

* FandomBerserkButton: In an odd inversion of this, "misspelling" a Great Old One's name in a fan work is actually a handy way of [[ShownTheirWork showing off your knowledge of the Mythos]], since it complies with Lovecraft's reminder that there is no definitive way of spelling the Old Ones' unpronounceable names in any human language. Creator/AlanMoore[='=]s ''TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'', for example, frequently references the Mythos, but it always spells the eponymous character's name as "Ktulu".
