|Shadow Hearts: From the New World|
Enemy in Shadow Heart from the new world.
A demon from the other world, known as death's representative. Looks harmless as it floats through the air, but a long look will stop the bravest hearts forever.
Ghatanothoa is from H.P Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos first apprearing in "Out of the Aeons" Ghatanothoa is a great old one and the first born of Cthulhu, it is a huge amorphous monstrostity which is so hideous that anyone who gazes upon it will be petrified into a living mummy. The victim is permanently immobilized, the body taking on the consistency of leather and the internal organs and the brain perserved indefinitely, yet they remain fully aware. Only the destruction of the subject's brain can free it from its hellish prison, though the unfortunate is likely to become incurably insane long before the welcomed release.
