The Kraken as seen in Lost Tapes

The Kraken is a creature of Norwegian mythology, and it is said that it had large eyes the size of dinner plates, a high forehead and tentacles the size of ships.


Most people say that the giant squid could be the Kraken, while others disagree, saying that it is instead the newly discovered Colossal Squid. However, in Lost Tapes, the Kraken is shown to resemble a colossal squid, albeit larger, with red skin and long tentacles. The kraken is also shown to have gigantic blue eyes, as seen in the end of the episode where it kills off James Werner.
