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 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.
- 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, 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:
- The Many-Angled One Kthl/Ktuhl is seemingly a reference to Cthulhu, and might be Cthulhu or a counterpart to him.
