* The [[OurGodsAreDifferent Gods]] and [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Demons]] from ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' are shown to be this. Early in the series they were stated to truly exist on a very higher-dimensional plane of existence, and their physical forms are merely 3D projections of themselves. [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm Those true forms are so incomprehensible]], [[CrossesTheLineTwice their sheer alien qualities are completely lost on humans]].

** While their true physical forms may be incomprehensible, they are psychologically much closer to human, to the point where god-human romances are (or at least, were before the introduction of the Judgement Gate) actually quite common. Romances which, when properly managed, can be incredibly loving and fulfilling for both parties. They may have the bodies and powers of eldritch abominations, but at heart they're still just people, a belief K1 himself expresses near the end of the manga.
* In ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}!'', the "demon" summoned on the Advena Avis, [[spoiler:Ronnie Schiatto]], is heavily implied to be closer to this than an actual demon. He possesses phenomenal cosmic-scale RealityWarper powers, and his true form is so hideous, any who sees it immediately has their memories of it ''blocked''. [[spoiler: It's also implied that he WasOnceAMan.]]
* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}''...hoo boy, where to start?
** The [[DemonLordsAndArchdevils Godhand]]. [[PowersThatBe Incorporeal existence]] that resides deep within the [[SpiritWorld Astral realm]], they are beings that [[RealityWarper play around with reality at will]], [[WindsOfDestinyChange manipulating the strings of Causality]] to [[CrapsackWorld bring misery and suffering to the world]]. Since they are not physical, [[SelfConstructedBeing they have to possess objects]] to manifest in the physical realm. Although, once every 1,000 years, they ''can'' manifest physically through the Incarnation Ceremony. If they do this, they are even more powerful than when residing in the Astral realm, capable of empowering the world with magic and [[SpaceMaster manipulate dimensions]] at will. Helping their eldritch nature is their origin: each member of the Godhand [[WasOnceAMan was humans]] who had the [[CosmicPlaything sheer misfortune]] [[TheChosenOne to be chosen]] by the previous members of Godhand during the [[ViciousCycle Eclipse]] (which occurs once every [[NumberOfTheBeast 216]] years). Which raises one question, ''where did the first Godhand come from?'' [[spoiler:The answer is the Idea of Evil.]]
** The [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Apostles]]. [[WasOnceAMan Former-human]] beings who made DealWithTheDevil that is the Godhand members, they are capable of switching between their [[HumanoidAbomination relatively human]] forms and their [[OneWingedAngel Apostle form]]. Their Apostle form [[RuleOfSymbolism represents the forms of their souls within the Astral realm]], and bring it forth into the physical realm. Despite their often unnatural and hideous forms though, they are nowhere as reality-breaking as the Godhand, and is relatively just powerful physical monsters. Emperor Ganishka however, does qualify when [[spoiler:he reincarnates himself into a tentacled giant who resides between the physical and Astral realms, whose size dwarfs a whole city and can function as a bridge between the two realms]].
** Then there's (although it may be decanonized) [[spoiler:the Idea of Evil]]. Its presence basically turns the whole Berserk into CosmicHorrorStory. In a bit of subversion though, it is not an unfeeling monster, it is legitimately connected with humanity, which somehow makes it worse. [[spoiler:[[YouCantFightFate The ruler]] [[BecauseDestinySaysSo of Causality]] and [[GreaterScopeVillain creator of the Godhand]], it is the answer the [[TheHeartless collective unconscious]] gives to humanity for thinking that every suffering has a reason; the Idea of Evil ''must'' be [[GodIsEvil responsible for every suffering]], and therefore [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor it does just that]].]]
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'''s [[{{God}} Soul King]] has been implied to be one of these since the Deicide arc. There's still much to be revealed, but he is almost assuredly this, since we've been meeting him as one ''giant, conscious body part'' at a time. Special mention is due the King's left arm, which is somehow a Quincy Sternritter, Pernida Parnkgjas. Unlike the other body parts we've seen, it has no humanoid form, just a cloak for a disguise. It's really a giant shapeshifting hand with eyes that talks in HulkSpeak. And it has countless ''invisible prehensile nerves'' that can take total control of objects and people -- and even reproduce any special powers they have.
* Raphaello from ''[[Anime/BtX B't X]]'' is a homebrew version of this: amorphous, constantly growing, NighInvulnerable, and assimilating everything in its path.
* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex''
** The series, [[FantasyKitchenSink being full of mythical creatures]] [[AllMythsAreTrue as it is]], meaning most {{Eldritch Abomination}}s in myths and religion exist here, and so far, they are accurate, if not more so. The [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Archangels]], for example, can destroy the entire Earth and cause [[RealityWarper reality-warping disasters]] merely by trying to go back to heaven. Makes you think what {{God}} himself would be..
** "The Invisible Thing" [[SealedEvilInACan sealed inside]] [[spoiler:Touma's right hand, which means woe to all who cut it off]]. It is so powerful, to the point that a [[RealityWarper conceptual being]] stronger than ''{{God}}'' is terrified of it, and nobody in the world has any understanding of what it is, except maybe Creator/AleisterCrowley, and he's not telling.
** The EnigmaticEmpoweringEntity of Aleister, code-named DRAGON, aka Aiwass. It looks sort of like an angel, but it doesn't act like one, nor talk like one. All that is known is that it is an immensely powerful, incorporeal existence, that needs the [[RealityWarper AIM]] [[ForceField fields]] to manifest in physical realm. It has only been attacked once, by [[spoiler:Accelerator, and it [[CurbStompBattle stomps him flat in no time]] with its ''unconscious'' defenses. Even Accelerator admits that he has no idea [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm exactly what it did to him when it attacked]]]]. And when [[spoiler:Accelerator removes the AIM field and Aiwass is erased from existence, it simply appears again, like nothing happened]].
* ''Manga/{{Claymore}}''
** [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Destroyer]]. Born from the FusionDance of two powerful beings, it has no sense of self or even attachment to life and expelled all of its emotion when it awoke, which was described as "life itself spilling out" by one of the spectators. Its true form is a black, shapeshifting tar-like mass of bodies that sucks out the life from anything it touches, and its energy is described as otherwordly and overwhelming. It also shoots things that either [[BodyHorror infect those they hit]] or turn into monsters.
** Priscilla, the strongest damn thing in the whole setting. In 3'rd Extra Chapter Rigardo observing Priscilla came to realization that [[spoiler:her physical body (including her [[OneWingedAngel demon form]]), as absurdly powerful as it is, is little more than a shell that merely [[SealedEvilInACan contains an infinite chaotic raw power waiting to be released]]. On rare occasions when we see her damaged a mass of deformed tentacles pours out from the wound to devour everything in their path before reforming as the missing body part.]]
* Emperor Muge Zorbados, the BigBad of SuperRobot series ''Anime/{{Dancougar}}''.
* The Shinigami King from ''Manga/DeathNote'' was never seen in the anime. But a brief flashback in the manga reveals he looks like ''[[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20080430212320/deathnote/images/b/bd/King_of_Death.jpg this]]''.
* {{God}} in ''Manga/{{Devilman}}''. We don't see what he/she/it really looks like, but its chosen form is apparently [[LightIsNotGood a huge sphere of light]] [[BrownNote that kills any demon in its reach]] and [[MythologyGag turns any human who gets too close to it into salt]]. Plus [[spoiler: {{Satan}} suffering a breakdown just from looking at it on TV]]. Which is understandable, since the reason why the ''Devilman''-[[TheVerse verse]] in all its incarnations is [[CrapsackWorld such a Happy Fun Place]] is because [[spoiler:God has total control over the cycle of death and rebirth of the universe [[GodIsEvil and uses it for the sole purpose of torturing Satan by crushing and ruining all he cares about over and over and over]]]].
* ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}''
** The D-Reaper from ''Anime/DigimonTamers'', a data-disposal program that got plugged into cosmic power. To fulfill its objective, a null-state for everything, it mutated into more and more alien forms, all inspired by the Franchise/CthulhuMythos (mixed correspondingly with designs of the Angels from ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Evangelion]]''). Unique in that it got ''worse'' when it became aware of humans as entities; it tapped into the agony and pain of ''one little girl'', amplifying and becoming TheHeartless and quite, quite insane by anyone's standard. It is both artificial and technological in origin, which is extremely rare outside the franchise, and unlike other franchise examples is most definitely '''''NOT''''' a digimon itself.
** [[http://www.deviantart.com/download/113193278/Megidramon_by_apocastasis.jpg Guilmon's Mega form, Megidramon]]. Guilmon started off as friendly, but his Mega form is such an abomination that its very existence can tear the digital world.
** Apocalymon from ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'', a twisted mutant whose body is attached to an enormous geometric planetoid, and is composed of the data of Digimon who died failing to digivolve. He also seems to reside outside the Digital World proper (coming from beyond the "Wall of Fire") and his very presence in the Digital World warped its [[YearInsideHourOutside flow of time]] and also causing the creation of powerful evil Digimon.
** The ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' episode where Kari gets taken by some Scubamon to [[EldritchLocation the Dark Ocean]] is a rather obvious reference to the Mythos. The episode's climax reveals them to be digital lifeforms based on the Deep Ones. To top it off, the episode is named ''[[ShoutOut The Call of Dagomon]]''.
** The virus-infected Cherubimon from the ''Supreme Evolution! The Golden Digimentals'' movie (or the final part of ''Digimon: TheMovie'', if you prefer), a psychotic mass of hate whose sheer existence warps space and is capable of bending time to his will. He is capable of regenerating virtually ad infinitum, and his insides are a chaotic pulsating mass of... something... filled with black spheres which represent the virus infecting him. Oh, and he's capable of appearing inside his own body somehow.
** Arkadimon from ''Manga/DigimonVTamer01'', once the thing reaches Super Ultimate.
* The Ghoul from ''Anime/DivergenceEve'', bizarre extradimensional maybe-biomechanical space monsters whose mere presence screws with space-time something fierce.
* ''Anime/DragonBallZ''
** Majin Buu. This bizarre pink genie creature has terrorized the universe, cowed the gods themselves, can transform you into ''conscious'' food while eating you alive, or absorb you by using its own malleable flesh to break off and consume you as it reintegrates with him and transforms into a new form, [[TheAssimilator taking some of the traits of the victims]] (this happened to ''God''), and, sufficiently enraged, he can ''tear down dimensions''.
** Janemba, a demon that was created by the pure evil energy of all the souls who have gone to hell from the last thousand years. He transforms from a ChaoticNeutral childish RealityWarper to a ChaoticEvil OmnicidalManiac, similar to kid Buu but in a big red devil form. His power is so great he was able to transform hell into a sugar bowl.
* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', [[spoiler:Acnologia, the Black Dragon of the Apocalypse, definitely qualifies compared to what we know of other dragons.]] The gap between it and human beings is so immense that communicating with it to fathom its thoughts is completely impossible even though it's fully capable of understanding human speech.
-->[[spoiler:'''Zeref:''']] In spite of that, the reason it doesn't use words is because it doesn't think of humans as anything more than insects. You wouldn't stop and talk to a pest buzzing around you. It's the same for the [[spoiler:dragon]]. You also wouldn't bother taking an obnoxious insect seriously even for a moment. There are things in this world that you cannot oppose or fight back against, no matter how hard you try.
* The Novas of ''Manga/{{Freezing}}''. Their CombatTentacles and [[WaveMotionGun Wave Motion Guns]] aside, how they can [[spoiler: crush and subvert Pandoras]] is down right terrifying. They are NighInvulnerable even against [[AmazonBrigade Pandoras]] (which are humanity's only defense against them), [[HeroKiller leaving corpses and dismemberment in their wake]], but what ''really'' makes them frightening is how they can [[spoiler:''brainwash'' the Pandoras.]]
* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''
** The GateOfTruth, which is a giant floating Necronomicon with a giant eye inside that spews black tentacles and that gives eldritch lore [[EquivalentExchange in return for sacrificing your limbs or others' souls]]. It's guarded by a being that calls itself [[HumanoidAbomination the Truth]], which appears to be nothing more than an empty white ''void'' in the shape of you... Unless you go through the gate and are forced to pay a toll, in which case he begins to fill himself in with ''your stolen body parts''. Every time Ed sees The Truth, it has his arm and leg. Add the constant [[SlasherSmile too-wide grin]] and he's unnerving in his own way.
** Some of the Homonculi, particularly Pride, when he isn't [[spoiler:[[AFormYouAreComfortableWith masquerading as a little boy]]]], is a [[LivingShadow colossal mass of shadows]] filled with eyes and mouths, often morphing into innumerable CombatTentacles, that could only be damaged by [[spoiler:essentially straining him through the Gate of Truth]]. Gluttony as well, being [[spoiler:a "fake" Gate of Truth]], essentially a black hole that can suck in an infinite amount of matter (there's a reason he's hungry all of the time). Envy seems to be this, with a OneWingedAngel form that resembles a huge chimera covered in the screaming faces of the people who make up his Philosopher's Stone, [[spoiler:although his true form is small and pathetic]].
** Their creator, Father, even more so. He originally looked like a black blob with eyes in a flask. Then he got a copy of [[spoiler:Hohenheim]]'s body that was actually a living Philosopher's Stone [[spoiler:made of hundreds of thousands of souls]]. Then he turned into a living blob of shadow covered with eyes and mouths that assumes a mostly human form. ''Then'' in [[WhamEpisode Chapter 104]], after [[spoiler:activating the nationwide transmutation circle and absorbing the souls of everyone in Amestris]], Father transforms into an immense, nightmarish creature, which he uses to [[spoiler:rip the Gate of Truth from the sky and cross the BishounenLine to become a PhysicalGod]].
* ''Anime/FushigiboshiNoFutagoHime'': The Black Crystal, which also serves as the GreaterScopeVillain. It takes the form of an otherwise inconspicuous crystal, but it has a will of its own and its real form is largely incomprehensible. It is an EmotionEater, and [[AsLongAsThereIsEvil as long as it can]] [[EmotionEater feed off of negativity]], it ''will'' continue to exist, no matter how many times it's defeated.
* ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' features the Mazoku, a race of AlwaysChaoticEvil OmnicidaManiacs serving the DarkLord Shabranigdu, The Lord of Nightmares, who even the mazoku find incomprehensible and alien. Just to top things off, a semi-regular member of the group is mazoku himself.
* ''Manga/GetterRobo'': A HumongousMecha work of Creator/KenIshikawa gave us another eldritch abomination. It is immensely powerful. Its sheer size dwarfs planets. Its mere passing destroys worlds. It is told it is able to devour a whole universe. One single beam from it can blow to cosmic dust a planet and its fist can crush tears in the fabric of time-space. Vast armies and armadas have tried destroying it, only to be easily obliterated in turn without even managing to damage it slightly. Its name? [[spoiler:[[http://www.mangareader.net/shin-getter-robo/9/21 Getter]] [[http://www.mangareader.net/shin-getter-robo/9/23 Emperor]],]] the final evolution of [[spoiler:Getter Robo.]] [[http://www.mangareader.net/shin-getter-robo/7/57 The narration goes as far as to state]]: "The voice that quakes the universe itself was indeed that of [[spoiler:Ryoma Nagare]]"
* ''Anime/GunBuster''
** The [[StarfishAlien Space Monsters]] are huge, mysterious, hatch from stars, and possibly [[KillAllHumans see mankind as a bacterial infection]] in the universe. The only thing that has kept us safe is [[PunyEarthlings not being noticed]], but we just had to [[TemptingFate keep poking into outer space]]. The [[spoiler:center of our galaxy is full of them]], [[IgnoranceIsBliss whatever that implies]]. To top it off, this is just the first batch encountered. Black holes merely [[SealedEvilInACan trap them]], and they will eventually [[spoiler:adapt to and take over that environment]]. Even after the [[SuperRobot ridiculously]] [[MomentOfAwesome awesome]] [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu victories]] [[spoiler:in the original, humanity had to [[BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu give up the fight]], ban all technology that could get the Monsters' attention, and safely hole up in the solar system.]] It bought time... against [[spoiler:[[FightingAShadow mere remnants]] of the original. [[ApocalypseHow Sacrificing the Earth]] would trap them again, while the means to [[DeaderThanDead actually kill them]] [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt endangers the entire universe]]. Which even gives us a healthy side order of HeWhoFightsMonsters, especially as mankind is evolving to resemble them.]]
** Taken as canon, the axed manga that would happen in between supplies plenty of reasons for the sequel's scenario. If the creatures so far are mere space antibodies, then the [[spoiler:Great Attractor]] turns out to be the [[NoSuchThingAsSpaceJesus conscious will of]] [[GeniusLoci the universe]]. Being able to crush star systems with a thought is bad enough, but its body exists on a higher dimension that humans and their technology [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm cannot perceive through]]. And it has long ago shed that to become [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien God knows what]].
* ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'', a RomanticComedy parody of the CthulhuMythos with [[MoeAnthropomorphism moe]] versions of the Old Ones. The opening theme for the second season even has "Cosmic Horror" (in GratuitousEnglish) in the lyrics. Of course, the main characters usually only [[HumanoidAbomination take human forms]]; this is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] when the human lead Mahiro says he [[ExpectingSomeoneTaller expected Nyarlathotep to look more horrific and less like a cute girl]]. She offers to show him her more monstrous forms, but warns that it'll probably destroy his sanity, so he declines.
* The manga ''Hakaiju'' appears to be a condensed collection of different alien atrocities wrapped together in one CosmicHorrorStory in the form of a mysterious earthquake that leaves high school basketball player Takashiro fighting for his survival. The first chapter has the unlucky protagonist encountering what is a writhing mass of alien, three-fingered hands with biting mouths at their tips [[http://mangafox.me/manga/hakaijuu/v01/c001/46.html which, as later panels shows]], are only appendages of one of the least menacing ones. And then there [[http://mangafox.me/manga/hakaijuu/v01/c001/68.html are creatures like this]].
* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'':
** The Celestials are giant glowing blue manifestations of Haruhi's frustrations with the world. They appear only in her "closed space", and serve no other purpose than to destroy everything in the surrounding area. If left unchecked, the closed space expands, and could [[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt destroy the universe]].
** Heck, even Haruhi [[spoiler:and Sasaki]] herself could be an example. An omnipotent god in the form of a childish young girl that doesn't realize she is omnipotent? Eldritch enough. Overlaps with HumanoidAbomination.
** The Data Integration Thought Entity, Yuki's boss, is a non-physical data lifeform that exists outside of normal space-time. It lacks the ability to communicate with language, so it created Humanoid Interfaces to interact with humanity on its behalf. Its goals and motivations are unclear, despite Yuki's attempts to explain, only that it is interested in Haruhi Suzumiya. Yuki also mentions that any human who sees it would [[BrownNote die of information overload]].
** Then you've got the Cloud Canopy Domain, a data lifeform similar to Yuki's boss, but completely alien and unknowable even to them. Their first attempt at a conversation involved trapping the Brigade in a pocket dimension, and they eventually create a truly alien Humanoid Interface that makes [[TheStoic Yuki]] look like a perfectly normal GenkiGirl. At least the Data Overmind's interfaces can pass for human most of the time; [[spoiler:Kuyou Suou]] is [[HumanoidAbomination so profoundly inhuman]] that normal people simply ''[[WeirdnessCensor will not]]'' acknowledge her existence unless forced to.
* The short manga called ''Manga/HellstarRemina'' by (unsurprisingly) Creator/JunjiIto contains the titular Remina, which is a a gigantic, {{planet eat|er}}ing [[ThatsNoMoon star]] that has ''[[EyesDoNotBelongThere eyes and a tongue]]'' (see page image above). This is ignoring the fact this thing plays with Earth's moon like a toy. Also, the surface of the star itself can be described as nothing more than an EldritchLocation (with a(n un)healthy side of DeathWorld).
* ''Manga/{{Heroman}}'' has Vine Monsters in one episode that seem to evoke this trope; as it turns out, [[spoiler: the Vines are of Alien origin and a part of the BigBad, Kogorr, who is himself an Eldritch Abomination when he's gotten the spheres he sent back to himself; he's also eaten several worlds, and we're shown the worlds he had consumed.]]
* ''Anime/IlSolePenetraLeIllusioni'' has the Daemonia, demon-possessed human beings that the magical girls must fight, and there's no way for them to defeat the Daemonia without also killing the possessed human. Most Daemonia are also fought in the [[EldritchLocation Astralux]], some kind of twisted facsimile of the real world.
* ''Manga/KnightsOfSidonia'': The Gauna are massive, shapeshifting fetus-like creatures with with their extendible, prehensile CombatTentacles. No-one knows where they came from or what they want, and their only apparent goal is to assimilate humans, giving them access to that human's memories and appearance. While their outer "placenta" bodies can be injured, Gauna are only able to be killed if their True Bodies are destroyed, and become capable of [[OrganicTechnology replicating the technology used by the humans]].
* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha''
** ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'' has the [[DarkIsEvil Darkness of the Book of Darkness]], an immortal, dimension-hopping, dimension-breaking, constantly morphing, bio-mechanical monstrosity that appears when you fill up all [[NumberOfTheBeast 666 pages]] of the [[ArtifactOfDoom Book of Darkness]]. If you manage to temporarily kill it, it will only rejuvenate in another dimension, where it will tempt another mage to fill up the pages of the Book of Darkness again, allowing it to be unsealed and go on another rampage. ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid'' showed through flashbacks that, during the time of the Ancient Belka War when it was most active, doomsday cults worshipped it as a god. However, when we actually see her personality she's shown to be a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds, literally. Her original programming was corrupted, and she can't control her own actions, making her a more benign example.
** ''VideoGame/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAsPortable: The Gears Of Destiny'' revealed that the Book of Darkness was originally created by the {{Precursors}} as a [[SealedEvilInACan seal]] for an even ''worse'' Abomination called the Unbreakable Darkness.
* Several of them showed up in the Mazinger trilogy (''Anime/MazingerZ'', ''Anime/GreatMazinger'', and ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer''), often overlapping with GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: GodEmperor Great Emperor of Darkness, [[spoiler:also known as Hades]] (BigBad from ''Anime/GreatMazinger''), Gilgilgan (of the Great Mazinger vs Getter Robo movie), Grangen (of the Great Mazinger vs Getter Robo G feature), Dragonsaurus (of Grendizer, Getter Robot G, Great Mazinger: Kessen! Daikaijuu movie), Varon the Annihilator (BigBad of ''Super Robot Retsuden'')... and, in the ''Manga/ShinMazingerZero'' manga, [[spoiler:Mazinger Z itself.]]
* A rare mechanical, [[AIIsACrapshoot robotic]] version of this trope coming from ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'' is the Devil Gundam (or the [[{{Bowdlerise}} Dark Gundam]] depending on the dub). A Gundam designed to be completely autonomous and with no need for a pilot, and given the capacity for self-evolution, self-recovery, and self-replication, it's more akin to a giant MechanicalLifeform than a HumongousMecha. Given the resources, the Devil Gundam could build up its physical form at will, bordering on shapeshifting into configurations that look disturbingly organic. It could also infect people with "DG cells", with the progressing infection leading to influencing behavior, then possessing people, and even capable of ''overwriting them entirely''. It also [[BackFromTheDead resurrected twice]] over the series. The kicker is that it was intended to [[BenevolentAI help humanity]] (albeit not directly) by [[EarthThatUsedToBeBetter repairing and protecting Earth's biosphere]], so that humanity could live there comfortably again. It decided that its main goal would be best achieved by killing off the humans (who were responsible for wrecking it) that remained on Earth, and preventing them from returning. In the series climax, it possesses an entire colony (not the people on it, but ''the colony'') and intends to [[ColonyDrop crash it into the Earth]].
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': The Ten-Tails[[note]][[IHaveManyNames also referred to as the One-Eyed God, Daidarabotchi, Datara, or Shinju]][[/note]] is so immensely powerful even the other Tailed Beasts consider it a monster. Like them it is formed of pure energy, but unlike them it lacks any emotion or ideals. The {{Big Bad}}'s plan is to revive the Ten-Tails by sealing the Tailed Beasts, who were created from its chakra, into the Statue of Outer Sealing, the Ten-Tail's body. It is revealed that the Ten-Tails was created when [[spoiler:Kaguya fused her body into the Shinju, infusing it with her desire to claim all chakra for herself]]. Fitting for an Eldritch Abomination's stereotypical "huge and hideous" qualities mentioned on the main page, the 10-Tails is so enormous that the 100-meter-tall normal Tailed Beasts are, at best, only one-fifth its size, and it comes in [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily mult]][[CombatTentacles iple]] [[EyesDoNotBelongThere forms]] that are all [[UncannyValley distorted]] and [[NightmareFuel/{{Naruto}} terrifying]] to look at.
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''
** Most of the Angels do qualify, being made of... ''something'', have a human-like DNA, possessing barriers impenetrable to anything (and in some cases, can even become an entire sub-universe), but three in particular are noticeable. Leliel is an infinitely thin levitating disc that leads to AnotherDimension, with a 3-dimensional shadow [[MindScrew that casts its own shadow]]. Arael is [[LightIsNotGood colossal creature of light]] that can fire [[MindRape mind-raping]] beams from the orbit. Armisael is a gravity-defying, double helix in a perfect circle that inflicts horrific BodyHorror on [=EVAs=] and the pilots by [[TheAssimilator attempting to assimilate with them]].
** The [=EVAs=] are artificial abominations, [[PoweredByAForsakenChild it can only be piloted by psychologically scarred children]], and are the only things that can fight Angels. Their true nature as [[spoiler:a clone of an Angel installed with a human soul]] is kept a secret until the end of the series, [[spoiler:as they are built to cause AssimilationPlot involving Adam and Lilith below]].
** Adam and Lilith ([[spoiler:the progenitors of the Angels and humanity respectively]]) are leagues above the Angels and EVA. The former's mere ''awakening'' killed off half of humanity and terrified the survivors so thoroughly they thought the [=EVAs=] were a good idea, and the awakening of Lilith, as seen in ''End of Evangelion'', was such pure MindScrew that it surpasses everything else seen in the series combined, [[GainaxEnding and even screws with our real-life psyches]]. [[spoiler:By extension, this makes Kaworu and Rei, the vessels for their souls, {{Humanoid Abomination}}s.]]
** The ''[[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Rebuild]]'' films turned Ramiel, Sahaquiel, and Zeruel into this. Ramiel is now a living geometry that constantly morphs through [[AlienGeometries impossible transformations]] whenever it is about to attack with a WaveMotionGun capable of melting mountains in one shot, constantly ''singing'' with inhuman voices and ''[[HellIsThatNoise screams]]'' whenever damaged. Sahaquiel becomes (by {{Kaiju}}-standards) ''gargantuan'' thing that mixes traits from three Angels of the original series, including the aforementioned Leliel. Zeruel takes the cake, for while it visually doesn't look any different, now it has at least ''24 layers'' of AT-Field, can shoot off EyeBeams to one-shot a barrier that took Ramiel 10 hours to destroy, and [[spoiler:can consume an EVA whole, and transform its body (but not its head) into a naked, human woman body to gain the traits of an EVA]].
** The ''Rebuild'' made the [=EVAs=] even more of an EldritchAbomination. Unit-02 reveals a transformation with BodyHorror that makes it several times more powerful and wild, and even grows a mouth to roar with. But that is nothing compared to Unit-1 and [[spoiler:Unit-13]], after [[spoiler:devouring the core of an Angel, as both cause an apocalypse very similar to Adam's awakening above, if not worse]].
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': Toned down some from the games' Pokédex descriptions, but some of the Pokémon remain delightfully creepy. A Notable case is the Creation Trio in the Sinnoh movie trilogy, [[Anime/PokemonTheRiseOfDarkrai Dialga and Palkia's clashing]] can send a small city to an pocket dimension as well as dissolve it into another dimension. [[Anime/PokemonGiratinaAndTheSkyWarrior Giratina]] lives in an EldritchLocation that looks and feels off (especialy with the wonky gravity) and [[Anime/PokemonArceusAndTheJewelOfLife Arceus]] is still the equivalent of {{God}}. Most of these overlaps with AnimalisticAbomination.
* The Nightwalker in ''Anime/PrincessMononoke'' may be enormous and scary to humans, but it isn't an EldritchAbomination. [[spoiler:Until its head is removed, that is.]]
* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'':
** Witches exist as twisted abominations of AlienGeometries in their own chaotic dimension hidden and isolated from the rest of reality, crafting a realm and servants to carry out some nebulous and hopeless task, and having yourself touched by a witch will mind-control you into despair and suicide.
*** Technically [[spoiler:magical girls themselves]], young, larval stage of witches. They [[HumanoidAbomination look human]], but that is simply a soulless shell they manipulate via remote control; their witch form is the true expression of their bodies and power.
*** Walpurgisnacht breaks the established laws ''of witches''. It doesn't even need a labyrinth and can apparently yank skyscrapers into the air just for the hell of it. It took everything [[spoiler:Homura]] could throw at it [[NoSell without a scratch]], and [[spoiler:in all the previous timelines]] defeating it was either impossible or came [[PyrrhicVictory at a terrible price]]. WordOfGod is that is formed from a FusionDance of ''multiple'' witches.
*** Kriemhild Gretchen, [[spoiler:the witch form of Kaname Madoka]] appears like [[LivingShadow a tower made of shadows]] with its top forming [[HumanoidAbomination the shadows of a girl]]. With time, it will [[AssimilationPlot absorb all of humanity into its barrier]]. Since it grows stronger [[spoiler:every time Homura resets time]], by the time of the series, it is explicitly the most powerful witch ''ever'', [[spoiler:born from the magical girl that one-shotted Walpurgisnacht]] and its size had grown to the point it reaches the far sky, and would assimilate the planet in 10 days.
** The Incubator, otherwise known as [[spoiler:Kyubey]], is a HiveMind spread across innumerable expendable bodies that's [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien advanced enough]] to create a system that breaks entropy, and [[LackOfEmpathy lacks anything resembling human emotions]] or [[BlueAndOrangeMorality morality]], seeing entire planets as nothing but livestock, putting it on the line between this or a ''very'' bizarre {{Starfish Alien|s}}.
** [[spoiler:[[MessianicArchetype Ultimate Madoka]]]] is a benevolent example [[EldritchAbomination/MythologyAndReligion in the same vein as]] {{God}}. She is less a being and [[AbstractApotheosis more an abstract concept]], referred to as The Law of Cycles, powered by "multiple universes" all centered around her in a singularity, and when she was born she ''deleted a law of physics'' and rewrote the multiverse, past present and future, to insert herself as a ''fundamental force'' of all universes, [[spoiler:absorbing the full karma of existence's suffering to prevent Magical Girls who suffer despair from ever witching out and instead sending them to Heaven.]]
** The end of ''[[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion Rebellion]]'' has [[spoiler:[[SatanicArchetype Akuma Homura]]. She manages to break ''Ultimate Madoka'', takes her mortal self, then conquers ''existence'' and rewrites it to ''her'' designs as a paradise for herself and the mortal self of Madoka.]]
* The {{Big Bad}}s of the first, second, third, and fifth story arcs of ''Anime/SailorMoon'': Queen Metalia, Death Phantom, Pharaoh 90, and Chaos. Pharaoh 90 and Chaos are even closer to this trope in the first anime; the [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]] allowed them to speak at least, but the anime took away ''any'' human features, making them ''completely'' alien and unknowable.
* The Faceless warriors in ''Manga/SaintSeiyaEpisodeGA''.
* The Noise from ''Anime/SenkiZesshouSymphogear'' - they have multiple forms, seems to be made of [[LightIsNotGood solid light]], annihilate their victims by just touching them, are capable of combining, and the only thing that can kill them is Symphogear users, because they resonate with Noise, forcing them to ''obey the laws of physics''.
* ''Manga/SoulEater''
** [[spoiler:The Great Old Ones]] are this or HumanoidAbomination in appearance. They're {{anthropomorphic personification}}s of madness of various kinds (i.e order/rule of law, terror, power, rage, knowledge). [[spoiler:Asura]] is likely 'terror' and [[spoiler:Eibon]] 'knowledge'. [[spoiler:Shinigami and Kid]] are both 'order'. [[spoiler:Excalibur]] represents Rage.
** [[spoiler:Kishin Asura]], before he puts his skin back on. Also, [[spoiler:Asura's [[OneWingedAngel superpowered, gargantuan form]]]] that he gets after he eats [[spoiler:Arachne's]] soul. Fitting, as [[spoiler:he IS the aforementioned Great Old One of the madness of terror]].
* ''Anime/StarDriver'': [[spoiler: Samekh]]. Sure, it's a HumongousMecha, incredibly big even when compared to other Cybodies and scary looking, but that's far from being worthy the name of EldritchAbomination, right? Well, [[spoiler: it's of alien origin, sentient, and capable of resisting its Driver's will. It can destroy most Cybodies effortlessly, and those who are already broken can be resurrected as its slaves. It was [[SealedEvilInACan sealed]] in AnotherDimension by using four powerful [[BarrierMaiden Maiden Cybodies]], and once it breaks free, it will consume [[TheLifestream Earth's entire life force]], ''killing every single life form on the planet''. It can also control time and space at full power]].
* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''
** The Anti-Spirals, having godlike powers, allowing them to break up laws of physics, create living battle ships as they want, create power-draining oceans in the middle of space, or trap people into a LotusEaterMachine at will, live in their own pocket dimension they created, create galaxy-sized HumongousMecha at an instant, [[spoiler:without using Spiral Power]], and having very creepy forms, similar to a LivingShadow, with the Anti-Spiral King resembling [[NonStandardCharacterDesign a living chalk drawing]]. In a slight subversion they are beings of ''order'', or at least see themselves as such, and they were originally a normal race that evolved into an ultra-powerful HiveMind.
** The Anti-Spirals are unique because the reason why they attempted to ascend into TheSingularity in the first place is ''to stop what they consider to be a greater and more terrifying Eldritch Abomination'', this time [[RealityWarper able to create matter out of absolute nothing, kick all the laws of physics to the curb, warp and dismantle reality according to its will]], and powered by pure insanity, the abuse of which [[NegativeSpaceWedgie will create a supermassive black hole that will consume the entire universe]]. The cosmic horror is [[spoiler:[[HumansAreCthulhu Spiral Energy]], with the aforementioned "insanity" as ridiculous amounts of physics-disregarding willpower. The Anti-Spirals attempted to drive the Spirals into despair because of the dangers of Spiral Energy.]]
** The eponymous mech. It can only exist in a special space between dimensions, is impossibly large, and both it and the Grand Zamboa are able to weaponize galaxies. It's a giant robot that doubles as an EnergyBeing.
* The [[BlackMagic dark]] MagiTek of [[TheEmpire the Wischtech Empire]] in ''Manga/UbelBlatt'' is focused on either creating abominations or bestowing {{Lovecraftian Superpower}}s. Bonus points for its truly nightmarish use of HumanResources.
* In ''Manga/{{Uzumaki}}'', [[spoiler:[[GeniusLoci the]] [[EldritchLocation ruins]] [[BeneathTheEarth under the lake]]]] are [[TimeAbyss impossibly ancient]], the sole force responsible for the curse of the spirals and all the [[DrivenToMadness insanity]], [[BodyHorror mutations]], and [[CruelAndUnusualDeath deaths]] (and [[FateWorseThanDeath worse]]) throughout the manga... And they have done so before and will do it again probably for as long as there is sentient life on the planet.
* The Hiruken Emperor from ''Anime/XamdLostMemories'' certainly qualifies. Not only does it have an unsettling and unnatural appearance, blots out the sun when it awakens, and causes a rain that [[TakenForGranite turns every living thing it touches to stone]], we later find out that [[spoiler:it's [[CameBackWrong the product of a failed attempt]] at [[MonsterFromBeyondTheVeil resurrecting a dead infant]] by using Hiruko technology]].
* ''Manga/{{Yaiba}}'' has Princess Kaguya's true form, which looks like a colossal, black blob with many hydra-bunnyish heads and huge grins. Then there's [[spoiler: Yamata no {{Orochi}}]], who is an [[spoiler: 8-headed, '''JAPAN-SIZED''' dragon that can erase whole countries in a matter of seconds.]]
* ''Anime/YuGiOh''
** Both the Orichalcos stones in the Doma [[StoryArc arc]], and the Light of Ruin that the Society of Light in ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'''s second season is built around, are Eldritch Abominations that were born from spatial phenomena and have no purpose but to [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt doom the universe under their whims]]. Even Judai's Neospacians reminded him that the Light of Ruin was a literal danger to all the cosmos.
** Zorc of the [[http://www.alaerart.com/images/YGO-clrZork-300pc/YGOclrZorkSet214.jpg Dragoncrotch]]. An ancient demon... thing [[TheHeartless created by the darkness in human hearts]] who plans to bury the world in darkness. Although he's more of a GodOfEvil since he's blatantly malicious.
** The Earthbound Gods (aka Earthbound Immortals/Jibakushin) from ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'', the evil entities sealed into the Nazca Lines and a serious threat to the protagonists. Apparently they're all just {{mooks}} compared to the King of the Underworld, but [[AbortedArc they decided that plot point wasn't important]].
