The Kraken is invulnerable. 100 men could not fight him. An army could not kill him.
— The Stygian Witches

The Kraken was an enormous sea monster under control of the sea god Poseidon and his wife Thetis.

Angered at the Acrisius, the king of Argos, for casting his son Perseus and lover into the sea Zeus ordered the Kraken to slay him. Later, Thetis demands that Andromeda, Perseus' bothered, must be sacrificed to the Kraken in the hopes that Perseus would die trying to save her as part of a scheme to get back at Zeus for turning her son Calibos into a monster.

After obtaining Medusa's head, Perseus faces off with the Kraken as it was summoned to devour Andromeda. Distracted by Athena's owl Bubo, the Kraken was left open for Perseus to fly in on Pegasus and petrify it with Medusa's head. After the clash, Zeus forbade the gods from seeking revenge against Perseus.

Battle vs. Kraken (Pirates of the Caribbean) (by CuchulainSetanta)[]

In the god's palace on Olympus, Zeus hears that Davy Jones has played a role in the imprisonment of Calypso in mortal form. Not about to let this transgression against the gods go unpunished, Zeus summons the Kraken to hunt down Jones and make him pay.

In the Caribbean, Jones is prowling the seas at night, looking for dying sailors to pressgang. Suddenly, the Olympian Kraken comes roaring out of the waves, and begins making for the Flying Dutchman. Seeing the approaching leviathan, Jones orders his men to unleash his own Kraken. The hammer on board is activated, and Jones' Kraken rises up, ready for battle.

The Olympian Kraken sees Jones' Kraken approaching, and slams the water with its tentacle arms. The other Kraken simply swims deeper to evade, before leaping out and latching onto the other monster, biting savagely at it. The Olympian Kraken is stunned, but soon recovers, pulling the other Kraken off with two arms and pounding it with the others.

Jones' Kraken retaliates, lashing at the Olympian Kraken with its barbed tentacles, causing it to release its grip. The Kraken then dives back into the sea, disappearing. The Olympian Kraken is puzzled, searching underwater for where its enemy escaped to. Suddenly it feels a sharp pain on its head: the other Kraken slipped around and attacked from behind. A few more bites, and the Olympian Kraken is killed. Jones smirks before going back to his work, while in Olympus, Zeus can do nothing but watch in anger.

Winner: Kraken (PotC)

Expert's Opinion[]

The PotC Kraken won primarily due to having more barbs and tentacles, as well as being substantially larger and having a large mouth for devouring enemies. That, along with its greater underwater stealth, won it the day.

Battle vs. Cetus (by GSFB)[]

Just off the shores of the Phonecian city of Joppa, a mile beyond the rocks where Andromeda is tied up, the ocean stirs. A mighty tidal wave erupts, slamming into the city walls of Joppa. Out of the blue and foamy chaos emerges a anthropoid denizen of the deep, a beast part ape and part fish, with four powerful arms and supr strength: the Kraken!

The beast makes it way towards Andromeda, to the screams of a frightened city and the tears of a mourning king. The beast roars, opening its eyes wide, seeing Andromeda, his prize. He was only a thousand yards from claiming her when a giant red whirlpool was birthed from the waves. The pool grew in front of him, and the beast stopped, touching the sides of the whirlpool hesitantly. He suddenly pulled back his hand,which was deeply. The beast bellowed, then examined its bleeding hand, curious as to what creature could have done this to him. The whirlpool grows, vibrates, and then the waves grow higher. Then the whirlpool stops, and a calm sets in. The monster begins to relax before the waters burst apart, revealing a mighty serpentine, walrus-like fanged, greyhound-headed, forked tail animal, a beast that shocks even the mighty Kraken: Ketos!

It too is here for Andromeda, and it will not let another take its prize. It opens its mouth, hissing like a cobra. The Kraken, overcoming his initial shock, flexes his pecs and biceps, opening its mouth, and growls. The Ketos hisses again, approaching the Kraken, who raises and stretches his 4 limbs. As the Kraken roars again the Ketos rises and bites down on one of the Kraken's shoulders. The Kraken, reeling from perhaps a mortal wound, grabs the Ketos and begins to crush the life out of it. Titans have Clashed...

Ketos releases the Kraken from its bite, yet immediatley bites one of the Kraken's arms, snapping it in half. The Kraken, red eyed with rage, throws the Ketos into the air for six hundred meters. The beast hits headfirst into the Sea. The Kraken feels of his broken arm and chest and back wounds, moaning. As the Kraken tried to recover he felt two saber fang tusks penetrate his tail, breaking the tailbone. The Kraken roared in agony and tried to shake off the monster from his tail. The Ketos released its bite, then wrapped itself around the Kraken like a boa constrictor. The Kraken panicked, looking for an escape, scared like a little child, but the Ketos reared its head over that of his foe, smiling. In a lightning quick flash Ketos struck down, biting into the head of the Kraken. Its saber fangs penetrated the Kraken's skull, plowing through the brain and into its throat. The Kraken's eyes rolled upwards, its arms dropped. The Ketos ripped its head clean off and swam away from the fallen beast. Before it could claim the Joppa Princess for supper, the Ketos turned around, sneering.

"That's what you get for taking my role in Clash of the Titans, you Scandinavian schmuck!"
