Eldritch Abominations in Web Original.

  • The Entity from Atop the Fourth Wall.
    • For such a campy, silly show about a Manchild who reads comic books, this thing is terrifying. For one thing, it seems to lack physical form. And from there, it all goes downhill. It's so deadly, the guy fighting it became a Multiversal Conqueror feared throughout creation just to stop it.
    • And unlike the majority of cosmic aberrations, this "glitch" can see us. I'm always watching. And given its true identity, that means its been watching us since we were children...

    • The "Machinations of Worms" arc centers around one of the Entity's "cousins", the King of Worms. According to the Absent Grimoire, it can feel fear, which warped its face to the point that anyone who sees it can recognize what it is. As such, it refuses to show its face, preferring to work behind the scenes through its "clockwork soldiers". Its ultimate goal is to master fear and heal its face. Oh, and it's also a lot smarter than the Entity, actively sabotaging Linkara: so far it took control of Linkara's cybermats, used them to infect Harvey Finevoice, Linksano, Ninja-Style Dancer, and the Zeonizer, and directly took control of Jaeris's A.I. Sierra.
  • The Creepypasta Dogscape has the world entirely turned into Meat Moss made of dog parts except for a few humans, thanks to an entity called "the Dog Mother." A soldier manages to claw his way down to it in a fit of Unstoppable Rage, but it quickly kills and assimilates him.
  • Being Dimensional Travelers, The Crew Of The Copper Colored Cupids often encounter such beings, and are extremely blasé about them. After trapping one (a temporal demon known as Thymon), they even set him to work in their post office, as all the tentacles come in handy.
  • The "Jackal" in a Creepypasta called "The Cave". Carvings of it found in the cave are all mostly scratched out. When the protagonist sees it, it's so incomprehensible that it really "looks" rather like that.
  • This is what The Fear Mythos is all about. There are a few Humanoid Abominations (The Slender Man, the Cold Boy, the Blind Man), and then there are the Starfish Abominations like EAT (sentient water that can replace all the water in your body and take you over) and the Empty City, which traps its victims inside itself, making them wander around its evershifting structures until they die.
  • In the Global Guardians PBEM Universe :
    • Lovecraft was right, he just got the details wrong. The Great Old Ones that invaded this reality at the beginning of time were imprisoned by the Powers That Be (or at least the Powers That Were at the Time), and in the modern day, the heroes have to deal with their remnants, their cultists, and their attempts to re-invade reality.
    • The Cthonians, the mortal descendants of the Great Old Ones, want to free their ancestors from their mystic prisons. The heroes naturally think this is a bad idea.
  • In the My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Mentally Advanced Abridged Series and Rainbow Dash Present Eldritch Abominations are everywhere.
    • One, Thackerzod (Sweetie Bell possessed), is even part of the main cast. Lovecraft was apparently a big inspiration for FiMFlamFilosopher and the team.
    • From Rainbow Dash Presents: Haunting Nightmare, we have Smarty Pants, who possesses Twilight Sparkle and plans to be eaten by an even larger eldritch abomination so it can continue it's unholy life cycle. It only fails to do so because Thrackerzod has already laid claim to Twilight itself.
    • Another Rainbow Dash Presents, A Star in Yellow, has Yellow Star trying to summon one using Twilight as part of a Funny Background Event. Less funny, Yellow Star and her twin sister were tricked into summoning one, and were apparently fathered by one. On a Pony Abomination level, in light of this episode the parallels between Yellow Star and Celestia seem to imply that Celestia is actually a lot better than she could have been.
  • Orion's Arm:
    • The Transapients, and especially the Archailects of . The very least of them is as far beyond a baseline human as that human is beyond a non-provolved animal. They are so advanced that their individual thoughts are sentient. Their physical forms vary from "Moon Brains" to entire pocket universes with just a small piece sticking out into reality. And most of those listed are "friendly" to humanity, though there are also entities that turn entire colonies into masses of flesh and metal as "art".
    • And then there's the Leviathan, a mysterious and really freaking hugenote  object that has made contact with the Triangulum Galaxy, and is probably heading to the Milky Way next. Who built it? Unknown. What are its intentions? Unknown. How was it built? Unknown. What even is it? Unknown. Even the Archailects are confused by this thing's existence.
  • The Cjopaze from Ruby Quest is apparently the force responsible for downfall and corruption of the facility and also the reason why the Brig/reality has been tearing apart over the course of the story.
  • In There Will Be Brawl, we get the multiple Mr. Game And Watches once they use their Final Smash. This is especially surprising because they are seen all over the city earlier, socializing and holding down normal jobs.
  • Thrilling Intent has the Tax Goat, a creature that "repossesses" people and takes them to a different dimension. The series also features a shadow monster in the Prison of Lights that is notably the only monster the group never even tries to fight.
  • Todd in the Shadows has made a Running Gag out of his belief that Lady Gaga is "a demon from hell".
    Todd: By the end of next year, she's gonna just be an enormous blob of protoplasm, crushing the world.
    Todd: Part of me resents the idea that she's the pop star that it's safe to like. And I don't mean safe, in that she's less likely to devour you.
  • Humorously addressed in an advertisement for Elder Sign.
  • H-M Brown's Shell introduces us to a strange creature that is difficult to describe and has led those who saw it into madness.
  • The Grandmatriarchs from Cookie Clicker. Fail to appease them with sufficient sacrifices of cookies, and they will turn into horrifying blobs of flesh and cookie dough and, according to the "News" scroll at the top of the page, begin to devour the world.
  • The Big Bad of browser game Demon Thesis is one of these, and is responsible for both empowering four college students with Elemental Powers and other spells and creating the monsters they are suddenly forced to defend themselves and others against, all for his own sinister purposes.
  • In the Yogscast Minecraft Series, the Sentinels are ultimately revealed to be this. While we've not seen their external appearance, Lewis Brindley and Simon Lane have travelled through one. Apparently some sort of Mechanical Monster, they have shown the ability to corrupt individuals, possess beings and drive them mad, including the Sand which used to keep them prisoner, and their "blood" seems to be radioactive.
  • Shrek, of all characters, is commonly made to be one of these in bizarre Youtube Poop-like videos that apparently are supposed to be funny.
  • Ask Alistair has several examples writing in with questions, falling in various places along the eldritch spectrum.
  • All of the teachers in Don't Hug Me I'm Scared, which are bizarre, reality-warping, malicious objects and creatures that terrorize the innocent students as the antagonists of the show.
  • C0DA, written by former The Elder Scrolls series writer/designer Michael Kirkbride, takes place in the far distant future of TES universe. Numidium, the Reality Warping Humongous Mecha of Dwemer construction, presumed destroyed following the events of Daggerfall, returns after having been caught in a time warp. Numidium, crossing over with Mechanical Abomination, is the living embodiment of the Dwemer's concept of refutation, or to have Jubal-lun-Sul put it bluntly:
    "Let’s face it. You were made to say “fuck it”. That’s not an answer that lasts."
  • A series of 5 images done by a William Burke depict Garfield as some sort of abomination which switches between appearances for each image. In response to these images, Youtuber Lumpy Touch took the images and made 5 short animations called "Garfield Gameboy'd"
    • The first image depicts a large and rather bloated Garfield with elongated arms holding Jon with a single hand and asking for his lasagna.
    • The second image shows Jon hiding behind a wall with a giant Garfield head on the body of a spider. Jon looks very disturbed, and Garfield once again asks for his lasagna, emphasizing the word.
    • The third image shows Garfield as barely having any form anymore, being a huge pile of flesh with pincers coming off. Jon is hiding behind the television looking terrified, and Garfield simply says "Jon I can smell you"
    • The fourth image shows Jon hiding behind a door. Holding a shotgun, he appears to have shot Garfield in the eye, it oozing out of his head. Garfield, who now has the body of a centipede, simply smiles and says "bullets don't work Jon".
    • The final image depicts Garfield as a gigantic entity now towering over Jon, with a bloated body and thin legs. His eye is still blown out from the shotgun, but he slithers a large tongue towards the tiny Jon before him and says "The world is going to end Jon".
    • There's now an entire video of it. Enjoy.
  • The title character of A Very Dangerous Thing is implied to be this.
  • Ede Valley has the Truth, a formless abomination with the ability to make humans see the nihilistic truth of the world and their place in it.
