{{Eldritch Abomination}}s in {{Webcomics}}.

----

* [[InsistentTerminology Space monsters]] are known to exist in the world of ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja''. They're planet-sized. People who know of this pray they don't notice the earth.
* WebComic/TheArtistIsDead! features one tailor-made to disturb and terrorize a cast of [[ArtInitiatesLife living drawings]].
* ''Webcomic/AutumnBay'' has one of these show up via falling star in the second strip.
* ''Webcomic/AwfulHospital'': Most everything in The Abyss]] is likely this. Depending on the in-universe nature of the readers, [[WordOfGod which will apparently not be revealed]], they may very well be this too.
* [[Website/{{Bogleech}} The Insidious Bogleech]] uses the idea frequently (albeit buried among many, many examples of simple OurMonstersAreWeird). In {{Mortasheen}} series of monsters, everything under the Unknown section is styled this way, from the Vault (which can go through solid matter like it was nothing and is spawned from AlienGeometries) to the Lobotomask (a horrible face-type thing that eats your mind).
* Played with occasionally in Kris Straub's ''{{Chainsawsuit}}''. The designer of ''VideoGame/{{Braid}}'' [[http://chainsawsuit.com/2008/08/20/strip-45/ is one of them]], though quite an approachable one.
* ''Webcomic/DMOfTheRings'': [[http://www.shamusyoung.com/twentysidedtale/?p=1168 "never try to scare a Call of Cthulhu player"]]
* Though they don't really appear in the comic proper, [[http://missmab.com/Demo/Cubi04.php this tidbit concerning cubi dream surfing]] reveals that these creatures do exist in the world of ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures''.
-->'''Fa'lina:''' Cubi aren't the only creatures who can lurk into dreams...
* In ''Webcomic/DominicDeegan'', the Beast appears to be this at first - it granted the Infernomancer his {{Lovecraftian Superpower}}s and appears as a gigantic eye, with tentacles and many, many teeth, and is effectively invisible to Dominic's Second Sight. Dominic, one of the most powerful seers alive and a master of mental combat, further empowered by Luna's BlackMagic, was barely able to fight off a tiny fragment of the Beast that tried to claim [[spoiler:Celesto Morgan]]'s soul. [[SubvertedTrope However, it was soon revealed to have all-too-comprehensible origins and psychology, and was eventually squashed.]]
* The Cultists in ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'' worship and summon eldritch abominations on a regular basis: first, there's a nameless creature referred to as an "eye-stalk" which [[MindRape mind rapes]] anyone that makes eye contact with it (in addition to transporting the victim to its own pocket dimension). Then there's major enemy Ur/Jnn'efur, who fits the "fragment of the true being" bill.
** [[spoiler:Endgame enemy Chaos is definitely this.]]
%% * And then, there's ''Webcomic/TheUnspeakableVaultOfDoom''. [[CatchPhrase Yum Yum!]] ED NOTE: OKAY SERIOUSLY, SOMEONE EXPAND ON THIS
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' has the eponymous "whale" of the January 2013 story arc. It's simultaneously of and NOT of our reality, and it's even [[NonstandardCharacterDesign depicted in a very odd way compared to other characters.]] However, it seems to be benevolent, and is dropping some rather large [[WhamEpisode plot]] [[MrExposition bombs.]]
* Invoked in ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'' when Sam starts to explain the correct way to steal; Qwerty observes, "[[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff2500/fc02413.htm The tentacled horror from beyond my stars spoke, and von Neumann help me, in my madness I understood its words.]]"
** Subsequent events have confirmed that Sam may not technically be one but he can play the part extremely well: when [[ItMakesSenseInContext he takes his pants off]], it's revealed that chromatophores in his [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff2800/fv02758.htm skin make his tentacles appear to exist in more dimensions than is standard.]]
* The first radio play in ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' mentions extradimensional abominations coming out of a well, [[PokeThePoodle leading directly to low rents]].
** In the actual webcomic, it is revealed that there are extra-dimensional horrors scary enough to dissuade even {{Mad Scientist}}s as reckless as the ''Heterodynes'' from messing with time. When time is disturbed, [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20140611 they notice]]. The above picture is of them. The Castle also mentions that's not the first time they show up, though last time they were much smaller and had brought hats. [[spoiler:Which later leads to the revelation that those exact smaller, hat-wearing, tangential-to-time eldritch monsters might be under Wulfenbach employment]].
* ''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}'' has the horrifying [[http://www.goblinscomic.com/03252011/ Mr. Fingers]], a creature who crawled out of a young boy's nightmares in a very literal sense. Who just [[http://www.goblinscomic.com/04262011/ got loose again]].
** Later it is detailed to be know as a ''Lesser'' Finged Horror. Which implies the existence of its bigger brothers.
* ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'':
** Coyote is a phenomenally powerful RealityWarper, even by the standards of a setting where magic and {{magitek}} is everywhere, who casually plucks the moon from the sky and doesn't even maintain the same shape between panels. When Annie sees Coyote [[spoiler:in the ether]] he can best be described as a starry night sky with ''lots'' of [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily teeth]] and [[ExtraEyes eyes]], and she rightly describes him as [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/?p=677 "magnificent and terrifying"]].
** [[spoiler:[[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=1051 Kat's etheric form]]]], as viewed by Zimmy.
** [[spoiler:Jones a.k.a Wandering Eye]] is the oldest, most bizarre and mysterious creature on the planet. "Creature" because they aren't really alive, being immortal, indestructible, and unchanging since the very first second of their existence, "oldest" because their existence began ''[[TimeAbyss 4.5 billion years ago]]'' (and they remember every second of it), and "mysterious" because not even they have the slightest clue what they are. Annie's reaction to learning this is priceless.
* ''Webcomic/{{Guttersnipe}}'' features H.P. Lovecraft as a sort of 1920s Creator/StephenieMeyer, complete with eldritch abominations standing in for sparkly vampires.
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'':
** The Horrorterrors of the [[EldritchLocation Furthest Ring]] befit the classic definition of vast monsters of varying forms of hideousness and deformity, with plenty of tentacles. There's probably hundreds of them, arranged in several tiers of power, the strongest being the Noble Circle of Horrorterrors. They can communicate with the Derse dreamers of every session of Sburb and are intended to provide some level of guidance. In the kids' session, [[BlackMagicianGirl Rose]] - previously well-read in their lore - channels their power through her Thorns of Oglogoth and it proves to have a less-than-desirable effect on her sanity.
*** [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=004748 This is pretty much what they look like.]] Watch it until the very end. And keep in mind, something is somehow mass-murdering these things.
** Feferi, [[OurTrollsAreDifferent one of the trolls]], was raised by one. It once provided the image for this page.
*** Feferi's lusus is capable of killing every troll in the Universe with a ''sound''. And she's an ''emissary'' of the Noble Circle of Horrorterrors, implied to be a lesser version.
** [[spoiler:Lord English]], the thing that is killing the Horrorterrors, is a time-traveling demon who feeds on dead universes, and [[TimeAbyss has lived through every universe, ever]]. Then we find out [[spoiler:he's just another player in the game.]]
* Some of Lovecraft's Elder Gods make an appearance in the [[http://www.pholph.com/strip.php?id=5&sid=507 "Games We Play In Hell"]] arc of ''Webcomic/{{Jack|DavidHopkins}}''.
* Cthulhu is included in a list of (otherwise real) horrifying sea creatures in ''Webcomic/MandatoryRollerCoaster''.
* Exris from ''Webcomic/MonsterLands'' is a shadow inside a robe whose only features are his white eyes and jagged teeth, which seem to be floating around inside his body
* Gravehouse of ''Necessary Monsters'' turns out to be much more tentacle-monstery than the human he looks like. ([[spoiler:"I crawled into his body and ate him up from the inside out. Until all that was left was skin and memory. Tell me... would you like to meet the real me?]]")
* ''Webcomic/NewYorkMagician'': Hello, [[spoiler:Cthulhu]]!
* ''Webcomic/TheNonAdventuresOfWonderella'' has its particular CaptainErsatz of Starro:
-->'''Wonderella:''' Meet [[http://nonadventures.com/2007/02/03/victorian-secret/ Spirral.]] Duder's a 300-story ''thingy'' who travels the galaxy, mind-controlling millions with his Spirral Spores.
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'': The Snarl is an incomprehensible being born from deific rage and strife, kept in check from destroying the world and the gods only by [[strike:five]] one measly gate. He's depicted as nothing but lines of blue and purple energy in a very vaguely humanoid form.
* ''Webcomic/OwMySanity'' features an UnwantedHarem of powerful beings from Lovecraft... who take human female forms.
* ''Webcomic/ThePackrat'' has the Demon of Waste ([[http://www.umop.com/art/kb014.jpg December 2010]]).
* In ''Webcomic/RustyAndCo'', [[http://rustyandco.com/comic/level-6-56/ the Python summons an elder god]]... DeusExMachina.
* In ''Literature/TheSalvationWar'' setting, according to WordOfGod, whatever lives on the opposite side of the Minos Portal in Hell (the portal through which the human dead arrive in Hell) exists in a reality so different and alien that nothing from either "Universe-One" (Earth) or any of the "Universe-Twos" (Heaven, Hell, and other assorted "higher-level" realities) can exist on it. Nothing either living or mechanical from either set of universes that passes through the portal has ever returned.
* ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'' has the [[spoiler:Paa'nuri]] (with a mobile apostrophe), entities made entirely of [[spoiler:Dark Matter]] and only detectable by traditional matter through the gravitational disturbances they generate and also used as weapons. [[spoiler:Only ever "seen" on a gravy-screen, where it looks like [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2012-12-16 a mass of tentacles the size of a planet]].]] It's implied by one joke that either their term for other races translates directly as "annoying" or they don't actually have a word for other races and just call them annoying.
* ''Webcomic/{{Shadowgirls}}'' takes direct inspiration from Lovecraft for its portrayal of the occult, most obviously in the character of Mother Hydra.
* Darumatha, the Demon-Dragon of Broken Hours (with a name like ''that''...) in ''Webcomic/TheWaterPhoenixKing.'' It might appear in the form of one of your dead friends, fatal injuries and all, or it might take its ''real'' form of a vast serpentine coil of living metal scales, fangs, and spikes reaching all the way to the outer stars, a manifestation capable of making strong men vomit in terror, or as a charming young woman in an evening dress who prattles cheerfully on about cutting hearts out. Or just go back and forth between all these shapes, apparently at random.
* In the webcomic ''Webcomic/{{Wildlife}}'' the protagonist is one of these.
* ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'' features [[http://xkcd.com/1013/ Sheeple]].
* ''Webcomic/IncubusTales'' features recurring antagonists known only as "Abominations", which are said to be anathema to everything that is not them. They have been shown to take a variety of shapes and forms, all of which are appalling and traumatic to everything and everyone around them. One of the most prominent, the Lord of Abominations, was so monstrous it was not shown and may have been incomprehensible.
* ''Webcomic/KeychainOfCreation'' has the Primordials, entities from before time, as is normal for ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}''.
-->'''Secret:''' ''[looking at a mural]'' What are these, Misho?\\
'''Misho:''' Mostly, they're images of the primordials, as they were before the war. The gods felt it important we be reminded who we were fighting... thought we would feel a bit more confidence if we knew the nature of our foes.\\
'''Secret:''' Who's that?\\
'''Misho:''' That would be Adrián, the River of All Torments. The gods weren't... used to humans, at that point.
* ''Webcomic/AllNightLaundry'' "What kind of maggot grows in the corpse of a day?"
** [[spoiler: This quote sums up the "Botfly," or the "Green Lady," a bizarre time parasite that travels through time and breaks reality. The best glimpse we've ever gotten of it is a horrifying, blurred out, tentacled monstrosity that follows Bina closely. When she turns around, it turns into a television, preventing us from witnessing the true horror.]]
* ''WebComic/{{Apothecia}}'' has the alien that Jesse meets, which can best be described as a writhing, fungal stew with More Teeth than the Osmond Family and eyes [[spoiler: and BlueAndOrangeMorality that makes killing things as important to it as breathing is for us.]]
* In ''WebComic/{{DeepRise}}'' [[StarfishAlien The Nobles]] build their cities around huge sleeping things that emit a steady stream of heat, radiation and other useful things.
