The Kraken is giant sea creature, akin to a giant octopus. The Kraken is from Norse mythology. It appears in the game Tomb Raider: Underworld, guarding the entrance to Niflheim, Lara herself theorized that the creature was not really a protector of the entrance and was actually just a creature that made it's way into the ruin and grew too big to leave. This particular incarnation of the Kraken is blind, and is incapable of moving, due to the fact there is not much water for it to move in. The Kraken is not a threat unless the player moves within range of the Kraken's tentacles and serves more as an obstacle than a traditional level boss.
