- "The dark form ran toward him with incredible swiftness. When it came near he saw that there was a kind of face on the squat ebon body, low down amid the several-jointed legs. The face peered up with a weird expression of doubt and inquiry; and terror crawled through the veins of the bold huntsman as he met the small, crafty eyes that were circled about with hair."
"The Spider God", Atlach-Nacha resembles a giant spider with a human-like face. It dwells in a cave system beneath Mount Voormithadreth, in the now extinct Arctic kingdom of Hyperborea. There, it spins a great web, forming a great bridge between the Dreamlands and the waking world. It is believed that when the web is complete, the end of the world will come.
- In FromSoftware's video game Bloodborne there is a boss called Rom the vacuous spider, who, besides her face, looks very similar to how Atlach-Nacha is described.
