Cthulhu is a large, winged monster. It is a reference to a fictional cosmic entity created by horror author H.P. Lovecraft, which first appeared in the short story The Call of Cthulhu (1926).

Known Behavior

Cthulhu will automatically attack all NPCs (except for Jeff Luke) and Maxwell on sight. It can be affected by taming weapons (Dart gun, Cupid Arrow, etc.) Cthulhu has poor offense, mainly due to its speed attack, but despite it Cthulhu bolsters a strong defense, and is able to defend up to 2 rockets. It will not attack a Shoggoth, Shambler, or objects with "Lovecraftian" as an adjective, but it will attack Shoggoth in Scribblenauts Unlimited.




  • Cthulhu is one of the objects that can come out of a portal.
  • In P5-1 in Scribblenauts, or Level 3-7 in Remix, if you move the camera all the way down right under the island, you can see a Cthulhu swimming near the ocean floor, which may be the reason that you're escaping the island.
  • Although it has wings, it cannot fly. If you equip a flying item (e.g. Wings) to Maxwell and take flight while riding Cthulhu, it will flap its wings. In Super Scribblenauts, it can fly like any other animal with wings.
  • You will not get the merit Water Jockey even if you swim with it.
  • Like Megalodon, after taming it and riding on a Cthulhu and tap on a object, the attack button doesn't appear.
  • In older games, if you equip it with an item such as a diving mask, the mask will be on its head instead of on the face.
  • Cthulhu appears in the Scribblenauts Unlimited Object Editor Trailer appearing as a clown with pink angel wings replacing his actual wings. Scribblenauts Unlimited Object Editor Trailer
  • Cthulhu appears on these two levels: Grave Manor and Lost Kingdom of Parentheses.
