He allegedly sired the Dweller-in-Darkness, a demon of the Everinnye dimension, alongside with possibly other unidentified offspring (although the "children" mentioned might be metaphorical).
Cthulhu's name was invoked by Thoth-Amon along with Set's and Vrathuggulos's names, by Thulandra Thuu along with Vramma's, Almuric's and Yog-Sothoth's names, and by the men of sea when they called for their god Dagon. His name was one of many invoked by Dharmi Shan.
At an unknown point, the Old Ones, possibly including Cthulhu, were reborn in a different form, into one simple spiritual entity, into one simple spiritual entity, the source of all persecution, toxic pride and true depravity: God when his name was invoked in hatred. They assumed various identities, including Ra, prayed by the Egyptians for him to keep the slaves in line and themselves wealthy. This tale was told in opposition to the Old Ones fleeing to an alternate dimension, although it is established many did left, under different circumstances.
Although, Cthulhu seemingly remained an individual entity, whose location was known at least by Wong.
Cthulhu seemingly became part of pop culture, and his name was used as a synonymous for eldritch demons and horrors, semingly including the Exo-Parasites, Shoggoths, and Viral Parallels.
- Cthulhu was created by H.P. Lovecraft in the short story "The Call of Cthulhu", published in the American pulp magazine Weird Tales in 1928.
- First appearing in Marvel Premiere (1972-73), Sligguth, as the son of an Elder God worshiped by his Serpent-Men descendants in the U.S. coastal city of Starkesboro, is considered as inspired either by H.P. Lovecraft's Dagon, or Cthulhu, while the Serpent-Men represent the Deep Ones and Starkesboro in place of Innsmouth.
- Cthulhu's first reference was erroneously stated in the Demons' entry of the Marvel Zombies Handbook #1 to occur in Savage Sword of Conan #52. The earliest reference occurred in Savage Sword of Conan #41. Cthulhu never actually appeared, apart:
- It is hypothesized that both Cthulhu and R'lyeh appeared, unnamed (though the creature was stated to be an Old One), in Doctor Strange, Sorcerer Supreme #1 (November, 1988), though it remained unconfirmed.
- as illusions, one cast by Khonshu in Moon Knight #191 which Moon Knight saw, another time in two forms, unnamed in Moon Knight #199.
- A few characters were seemingly inspired by Cthulhu:
- Cthulhu's location is unknown.
- In Savage Sword of Conan #176, the chant "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Ctulhu R'lyeh wgah-ngal fhtaga!" was uttered, which is a viartion of Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn, which can be translated by "In his house at R'lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming"), though the sentence hasn't been translated in-universe so far.
- In Symbiote Spider-Man: Alien Reality #1 (December, 2019), Spider-Man jokes about Cthulhu being held in a coke bottle in the Sanctum Sanctorum, but stop Wong when he tries to correct him and tell him Cthulhu's location.
- Cthulhu's name was used as a synonymous for eldritch demons and horrors, semingly including the Exo-Parasites, Shoggoths, and Viral Parallels, the same way H.P. Lovecraft's name is used as an adjective for eldritch entities (see the trivia section of H.P. Lovecraft's page).
