Eldritch Abomination: Western Animation
The animators did a pretty good job drawing the scariest creatures imaginable.


  • Adventure Time
    • Hunson Abadeer, an unkillable, hideous monstrosity who rules the Nightosphere in a perpetual state of chaos and pain, has a One-Winged Angel form Lovecraft would have been proud of, and whose first order of business when he managed to escape was to suck up the souls of everyone in Ooo. How Marceline ever managed to become a Chaotic Neutral Cute Monster Girl with that as a parent is a riddle for the ages.
      • Abadeer's amulet, made of "pure chaotic evil", turns the wearer into an Eldritch Abomination within seconds. This happens to both Marceline and Finn.
    • Prismo is a being of unlimited power who lives outside of time and space at the centre of The Multiverse, casually creates (and destroys) entire Alternate Universes, and doesn't even have a physical form so much as he's a projection of the Time Room. Fortunately, he's a pretty friendly guy.
  • Dexter's Laboratory
    • The monster in "Dee-Dimensional".
    • The interdimensional beast "Jojo" in "Mandarker". He apparently helped Mandark write the book The Magic of Science by Mandark and Jojo, but when Mandark summons him as part of a science fair project, he goes berserk and tries to eat Dee Dee.
  • The spirits Raava and Vaatu from The Legend of Korra are the manifestations of peace and chaos respectively. Every 10,000 years the two battle for control of the universe, and although neither one can be killed by the other (they'd just re-emerge in time for the next round), if Vaatu wins he'll cause The End of the World as We Know It. Before he became the first Avatar,Wan accidentally released Vaatu and started a massive war between humans and spirits, but Vaatu shot himself in the metaphorical foot by letting Wan live, allowing him to become the first Avatar and imprison Vaatu in the Spirit World.
  • Ben 10: Ultimate Alien
    • Lucubra, the main antagonist of the episode "The Creature From Beyond" and one of the breed of monstrous minions to the Big Bad of the season, Diagon. This extra-dimensional horror boasts Super Strength, Nigh-Invulnerability, Frickin' Laser Beams, and the power to devour a person's thoughts with Mind Control as a bonus.
    • Diagon. It's held behind the same seal as Lucubra, but is much worse (Gwen says compared to Diagon, Lucubra is an insect!). In the next episode, they're actually shown the Diagon, and while the audience doesn't see it (though commercials very clearly show him), Gwen and Kevin react to seeing him as if they were in pain. Just take a look. He comes from another dimension, is referred to as an "Old One" by Charmcaster, and has enough power to match and defeat a powered up Way Big (one of Ben's most powerful aliens, if not THE most powerful).
  • DCAU
    • Superman: The Animated Series had as a one-time threat a Hive Mind alien blob thing that called itself "Unity". Using a creepy preacher as its primary avatar, it turned Smallville into a Town with a Dark Secret and nearly absorbed all the townsfolk into itself.
      • In the comics, Ian Karkull is a guy with shadow powers, but in this, it's like the writers didn't know if they wanted Cthulhu or Satan and so combined them. A common hood gets his hand on a tablet and reads it aloud. Bad idea. He becomes the host to a shadowy tentacled something that wants to create Hell on Earth and basically overwrites the Daily Planet with his own unreality, everyone caught within, Lois and Jimmy included, becoming possessed and transformed by the demonic creatures that live there. There's a seemingly bottomless pit in the center. In the end, Superman has to chase the dropped tablet (Doctor Fate needs the original tablet to undo it all) down this pit, and it turns that if you go far enough, farther than the eye can see from the surface, the pit does have a bottom. The bottom has a mouth. The bottom is also rising.
    • In a two part Justice League episode "The Terror Beyond", Superman and Co. go fight Ichthultu. A giant alien monstrosity not bound by time or space going up against a group of superheroes in a work that sits firmly on the Idealistic side of the Sliding Scale of Idealism Versus Cynicism? The beatdown was the source of much awesomeness.
  • In its planning stages, The Emperor's New Groove originally had Vain Sorceress Yzma summon a force of darkness, called Supai, to blot out the sun and plunge the entire world into eternal night.
  • Chernabog from Fantasia is an obviously Sataneque being who is shrouded in darkness and having entire mountain as his lower torso. He is able to raise the dead, manipulate flames and change things into twisted parodies of life.
  • One of these in Futurama attempts to date and have sex with the entire universe in the second movie.
  • Courage the Cowardly Dog dealt with these things all the time. Most notable was the blue... well, whatever you want to call it from "Perfect." Despite only having about 10 seconds of screen time, it was one of the scariest and most notorious creatures in a series known for having scary things.
  • Gravity Falls
    • An easter egg in the episode "Irrational Treasure" lists on the top-secret Northwest Cover-Up document that there is an enormous, evil, time-devouring baby from another dimension that is frozen in an Antarctic glacier. "The Time Traveler's Pig" reveals that the "Time Baby," as its mortal supplicants dub it, is eventually released and conquers the world... or at least establishes the Time Police.
    • Bill Cypher, a pyramid-shaped, reality warping demon who invades people's dreams. "I'LL BE WATCHING YOU..."
    • That floating head from the short "The Tooth". What is it. We don't know.
  • The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy: The Nergals, especially Junior. In addition to shapeshifting, he can walk through walls, freeze people in stasis, and spawn bat-like imps from his own body. His true form is so hideous that they didn't even show it onscreen until it (ostensibly) appeared in "The Greatest Love Story Ever Told Ever". Note that Junior isn't always evil. (If you don't make him angry, he can be somewhat decent.)
  • The infamous Paraphernalia Wagon from Halloween Is Grinch Night releases a truly bizarre assortment of creatures, referred to as the "Unhuman Race."
  • Short-lived (only 13 episodes long) 80's Hasbro series Inhumanoids revolved around the heroic "Earth Corps" fighting against ancient, kaiju-like horrors from the center of the Earth. The three main antagonists were Metlar (giant mineral-based demon who throws globs of molten rock/iron at his foes), D'Compose (rotting zombie dinosaur who could revive the dead and turn the living into decaying zombie slaves with a touch) and Tendril (Cthulhu-like plant-monster). Others appeared in several episodes, like Gagoyle and Ssslither, whilst recurring foe Nightcrawler was a Humanoid Abomination created by D'Compose from the corpse of a human enemy.
  • An episode of Moville Mysteries revealed the school janitor was a former Adventurer Archaeologist who had one these (all we see of it are red tentacles) sealed in his big toe.
  • The demon that Mok wants to summon in Rock and Rule lacks a fully defined, stable form, has immense power, and its actions are more akin to an all-consuming supernatural force of destruction than those of a recognizably sentient being.
  • In Sabrina: The Animated Series when Sabrina, Harvey and Salem are trapped inside Harvey's comic book world, they encounter an entity known as the Dreaded Dysphilia. It appears as a flying blob of fungus that erases everything in its path forever, and Harvey's negative self-esteem makes it bigger. That's right - a monster that is powered by the negative self-esteem of a teenager. What's more is that it's completely alien to the comic book world - Harvey didn't even create it.
  • In the backstory of Samurai Jack, the gods, Odin, Vishnu and Ra, hunted and defeated Evil itself, a black mass of pure nothing. A single fragment survived and fell to Earth and eventually becoming Aku.
  • While most of the monsters in the Scooby-Doo franchise are fake, the occasional real one shows up. The Bigger Bad of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated is an evil annunaki, which are extra dimensional beings that usually communicate by possessing animals. The unnamed entity spends most of the series sealed in a coffin, but still manipulates the creation of mystery solving groups and either attracts or creates the various crooks in costumes, as well as stealing and imprisoning the best parts of people that live in Crystal Cove. When released, it unleashes hell and animal headed minions on the town and starts eating the residents, swearing to eat entire galaxies and eventually the universe. Yes, the offspring of Satan and Cthulhu made an appearance on a Scooby-Doo show.
  • The prime antagonist of Shadow Raiders is the Beast Planet, a Planet Eater the size of a gas giant that never stops, tires, or negotiates, produces an unlimited supply of scary-looking Mooks, and is completely Nigh Invulnerable. They only defeat it by teleporting it away, and it then just starts eating other planets and may well have absorbed the teleporter technology...
  • South Park
    • The Wall-Mart store chain, which exists As Long As There Is Capitalism.
    • In "Coon 2: Hindsight" and "Mysterion Rises", DP (formerly BP) drill into another dimension and release Cthulhu.
    • Cartman becomes one in "Trapper Keeper" when he is assimilated.
  • Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go! has several of them, like a flying, multiple-eyed thing that turned anybody who looked at it into bloodthirsty zombies, among many others. And Skeleton King's master was a fricking big earthworm-like thing that was much larger than anything else our heroes ever meet. And it was only a part of its original body, God knows how big.
    • The eye monster was Skeleton King's eyeball. Wow... If each body part of his is an Eldritch Abomination, then what does that make him?
    • Also, an episode late in the final season has a flying minotaur-like thing with the ability to open a portal to a dimension filled with fellow Abominations. And during the finale, the team actually travels to that dimension in pursuit of Mandarin, Valeena, and Evil!Sparx, thus exposing the audience to even more Nightmare Fuel.
  • Retcons to the Transformers backstory turned the planet-eating Unicron into an Eldritch Abomination, not only giving him the power to move between dimensions and universes, but also insinuating that a piece of his dark soul inhabits all of the Transformers since the beginning, meaning that any one of them could turn into a servant to his apocalyptic hunger. Just listen to his theme song.
    • It was also revealed that he does not eat planets for sustenance - he gets that from hatred and strife, and will exist so long as these things do. No, he eats planets because he's offended by existence. All of it. So he's trying to eat it. All of it. Every dimension. He's already devoured approximately 20% of all known existence in the multiverse and is eager to continue his binge. When he's done, space itself as we know it will be eaten. Your definition of nothing is not "nothingness" enough for his taste. He can EAT "nothing" as we know it in favor of a truer "nothing" and will only be satisfied when he has EATEN SPACE. He even apparently once destroyed reality itself, and the only reason that anything exists at all is because he missed a couple of fragments and fell asleep, allowing them to rebuild.
    • In Transformers Prime, Dark Energon is revealed to be Unicron's blood. This is a substance that makes anyone that uses it hear Unicron's thoughts, gives them a serious power boost, causes feelings of intense nausea and illness upon first contact (though eventually it is possible to build up a resistance), almost kills a human (Raf, to be exact), and, above anything else, resurrects dead Transformers as mindless berserkers, allowing living ones with enough Dark Energon to control them unless Dark Energon is mixed with something such as synthetic energon. If his blood can do that...
      • And as of "One Shall Rise", it's got worse. The earth formed around him. And he can make copies of himself in the rock, and keep making them until you're dead. (They're smaller than the original, thankfully, but still huge.) Later on, it's revealed that it can revive lobotomised consciences, and that mixing it with artificial compounds such as synthetic energon causes mutated Terrorcons to be created, essentially vampires in Transformer form, as several poor Vehicons, all the Insecticons, Airachnid and Silas / Cylas found out.
      • Dark Energon isn't the only version of Unicron's blood that did horrifying things; Angolmois (from Beast Wars II. Dark Energon is basically Angolmois by another name, though the makers of Transformers: War for Cybertron say it's pure coincidence) is liquid chaos, causing completely random and often puzzling effects. In the comics, it made someone into a Herald without them even realizing it, mutating them into monsters that frothed green and granting extreme amounts of power.
    • The Swarm in Transformers: Generation 2 was born from a long-lost ritual of Transformer reproduction that their god Primus never intended them to retain, and is obsessed with destroying all mechanical life in the known universe.
    • Also, the big reveal of Transformers Armada is that the Mini-cons are created from Unicron's cells. Keep in mind how powerful they are, especially when brought together. Earth-Shattering Kaboom power in the right combination, and this magic, pretty 'song' they do. It's all part of him.
  • The Trap Door is full of these things (including the main character's employer). Some of them really quite nightmarish. It's an 80's British claymation kids' show.
  • My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic has plenty of giant scary monsters in it, but few are more eldritch-like than the Windigos; horrifying, icy, ghostlike horses that create blizzards wherever they go and feed on hatred and anger. And not only that, they like to freeze everyone who has negative feelings and entomb them in ice, presumably to feed on their anger and hatred forever. Thank Celestia that the founders of Equestria were able to oust them with The Power of Friendship. To drive their Lovecraftian qualities home, they look almost exactly like real life horses (something that on its own makes them alien and monstrous in a series where horses are cute and cartoony), it's subtly implied that they manipulate ponies' emotions to make them more hateful, and even after seemingly being destroyed by The Power of Friendship, it's implied that they're still around and will always exist as long as ponies continue to have conflicts.
  • An episode of The Wild Thornberrys set in Africa had Eliza and Darwin venture into a forbidden patch of the jungle where a demon, monster, or something even worse supposedly dwelled. The seemingly supernatural events that occur throughout the episode could be regarded as Eliza simply hallucinating from panic and fear... until the very end.
