The Kraken

This legendary sea monster is said to have originated off the coasts of Norway and Greenland, and it's basically a ginormous squid (although often depicted as an octopus as well) with a really bad attitude problem. For centuries, ships lost at sea were thought to have met their demise through tangles with the Kraken, and it's recently had somewhat of a renaissance, as it's been featured in numerous works of literature, television, video games and film such as Clash of the Titans and the Pirates of the Caribbean series.
