The Elderspawn includes:
- Damballah, spawn of Set.
- The N'Garai, Varcolac, his Wolf Men offspring, and his fellow Wolf Lords Garmr "the Hellhound", Lycaon "Bloodhound" and Gaueko "the Night Beast", the Ape Men, the Man-Bats of Ur-Xanarrh the Harpies, the Goblins, and possibly the Nightgaunts, spawns of Chthon.
- Omm and the Spider People, spawns of Gaea.
- The Flying Fiends.
- The Earth-gods, birthed by Gaea via Demiurge, Atum and others, are seemingly to be considered as Elderspawn.
- The Ennead were the spawns of Atum, the son of Gaea and of the Demiurge.
Chthon's creations such as Dragonus, Dwarf, Hellhound, the Midwife, Monstrosity, Nezaral, Troids, Whisperer, Wish-Demon were stated to be either his spawn or magical creations. Another statement list the Hellhound as one of the Wolf Lords of the Wolf Men, and as such an Elderspawn.
Gaea's son, Atum, and Set's children, Ishiti, Phorcys, Sligguth, Tartessus, Yamato-no-Orichi and the Dragon of the Moon, were seemingly not included among the Elderspawn, though Damballah, also mentioned in that list, was confirmed to be an Elderspawn. Agamotto is also not listed among the Elderspawn, despite being the child of Oshtur.
When Set killed and absorbed Hyppus' life energy, all of the Elder Gods, save for Oshtur (who was exploring the universe at that time) and Gaea (who cared for the new liforms in Earth's oceans), began preying on each other. Gaea summoned the Demiurge, mated with him, birthing the first of he new gods, Atum. Atum slew the demonic Elder Gods, turning into the Demogorge and causing Set and Chthon to flee..
Afterwards, some of Elderspawn remained, returned, or were birthed.
- The Elderspawn are seemingly inspired, as the monstrous pre-human races birthed by elder deities, by the many races of the Cthulhu Mythos, such as the Deep Ones (which inspired the Serpent Men of Starkesboro, and the Broodlings of Chthon, both spawns and worshipers of respectively Sligguth and Chthon), the Mi-go, the Serpent-Men (who are one of the Elderspawn of Set, and the spawn of Sligguth in Marvel Comics), creations and/or worshippers of the Old Ones.
