It resembles a gigantic, humanoid frog-like appearance with only a single, huge eye in the center of his forehead like a cyclops. A dense mane and a beard of writhing tentacles grows from his head.
Ythogtha is incredibly large; when the sorcerer-priest Zanthu attempts to free Ythogtha from his prison, he mistakes his god's clawed, slimy fingertips for mountainous heads.
Powers and Abilities
The Elder Gods imprisoned Ythogtha in the Abyss of Yhe and was worshipped as a god by both the Yugg and the various tribes of humans who inhabited the lost continent of Mu. He is served by the planarian-like yuggs and their lord, Ubb, The Father of Worms.
After the demise of the high priest of Shupnikkurat at the hands of Ghatanothoa, the Cult of Ghatanothoa became the dominant religion on Mu, and it's priesthood outlawed all other religions. To overthrow the Cult of Ghatanothoa and restore the declining Cult of Ythogtha to its rightful place as chief religion of Mu, the high priest Zanthu attempted to free his master Ythogtha, but once he saw the true nature of this beast, abandoned the ritual and fled Mu, recording his endeavors on the twelve "Zanthu Tablets," which also contained all of Ythogtha's sacred rituals and secrets. Seeing this blasphemy, the Elder Gods were displeased, and destroyed the continent of Mu, sending it to the bottom of the ocean along with Ythogtha.
