Back in 2006 I did an internship at Ascaron Game Development Studios, working on a pirate game.
One of the features was the ability to summon a Kraken.
So I made this octopus arm, which was then placed eightfold around the enemy ship to attack it.
(So you never actually saw the Krakens body.)
We named him Eric and he actually made it into the finished game.
