Cthulhu was one of the Old Ones, extradimensional beings predating Earth.[1] He possibly resided in R'lyeh.[6]

He allegedly spawned unidentified offspring.[2]

Hyborian age

Cthulhu's name was invoked by Thoth-Amon along with Set's and Vrathuggulos's names,[7] by Thulandra Thuu along with Vramma's, Almuric's and Yog-Sothoth's names,[8] and by the men of sea when they called for their god Dagon.[5] His name was one of many invoked by Dharmi Shan.[9]


At an unknown point, the Old Ones, possibly including Cthulhu, were reborn in a different form, 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,[10] although it is established many did left, under different circumstances.

Modern Age

Although, Cthulhu seemingly remained an individual entity, whose location was seemingly known at least by Wong.

Cthulhu seemingly became part of pop culture,[11] his name was featured on posters such as "Cthulhu Lives!",[12] and was used as a synonymous for eldritch demons[13] and horrors,[14] including Moridun,[15] Gathonagog,[4] and seemingly the Exo-Parasites, Shoggoths, and Viral Parallels.[16]
