The Kraken (/ˈkreɪkən/ or /ˈkrɑːkən/)[1] is a legendary sea monster of large proportions that is said to dwell off the coasts of Norway and Greenland. The legend may have originated from sightings of giant squid that are estimated to grow to in length 12-15 meters(40-50 feet) including the tentacles.[2][3] The sheer size and fearsome appearance attributed to the kraken have made it a common ocean-dwelling monster in various fictional works.

Draugen was originally a dead person, an old man, whether he lived in the heap (the Norse called haugbúi) or set out to haunt the living. In recent folklore, it was customary to limit the shape of a ghost of a dead fish that had driven the sea, and that was not buried in consecrated ground. It was said that he wore leather right, but had a tang vase to head, sailed in a half boat with ripped sails and alerted death for those who saw him or even wanted to pull them down
