The Top Ten

1 Blobfish Blobfish The blobfish is a deep sea fish of the family Psychrolutidae. It inhabits the deep waters off the coasts of mainland Australia and Tasmania, as well as the waters of New Zealand.

Blobfish aren't ugly.

It's just decompression that happens when a creature that's been formed to live deep in the sea, is taken to surface.

Imagine human's body living at 1% of atmospheric pressure. Humans would look ugly too. - nonameforme

Poor dude he's just trying to live his life - BreakFastBeast2005

Look at it. It looks like somebody dumped their body fat and mucus in a pile and gave it a face. - Cyri

Blobfish is so cute an adorable

2 Anglerfish Anglerfish

I wonder how many people are gonna have Finding Nemo flashbacks after seeing this thing. - Gg2000

This is one of the reasons I would never go to the deep sea, even in a submarine. - PhoenixAura81

The Anglerfish deserves top spot, we call that Thing the Sea Devil for a reason - LostGuyfrom2018

Haha I'm coming to bite ya butt haha - TriggerTrashKid

It looks like it should be used as a metal band's logo. Not ugly, just quite scary-looking. - Britgirl

It freaks me out! - Userguy44

Most people think it's ugly, so I added it. I actually think it's kind of cute. - Cyri

Now that's scary - BreakFastBeast2005

5 Frilled Shark Frilled Shark

I think that it's a beautiful creature. So sharp-looking, like a sword. - Crwth

It looks like an eel, but it's a shark. And it's hideous. - Cyri

Oh gosh - TriggerTrashKid

That thing is probably the scariest-looking thing I’ve ever seen! - PhoenixAura81

This thing is UGLY but frilled sharks are uglier AND scarier. - PhoenixAura81

9 Giant Squid Giant Squid The giant squid is a deep-ocean dwelling squid in the family Architeuthidae. Giant squid can grow to a tremendous size due to deep-sea gigantism: recent estimates put the maximum size at 13 m for females and 10 m for males from the posterior fins to the tip of the two long tentacles (second only to more.

I would never approach that thing. I'm also pretty sure that sailors back then associated them as krakens, a Scandinavian mythical creature. Sperm whales eat these squids as part of their main diet so I shouldn't be TOO scared. - PhoenixAura81

Eyes the size of dinner plates. Rings the size of hubcaps. - Cyri

10 Sea Pig Sea Pig Scotoplanes, commonly known as the sea pig, is a genus of deep-sea holothurian echinoderm of the family Elpidiidae, order Elasipodida.

I'm glad someone added this. - Cyri

Maybe it’s just because it was taken out of the water, but damn. This thing is way uglier than your average sea cucumber.

The Contenders

11 Ocean Sunfish

Also known as the Mola-Mola. It's a 10 foot underwater frisbee with fins. - Cyri

Not that ugly or scary looking, but it’s the heaviest fish in the world. - PhoenixAura81

12 Great White Shark Great White Shark The great white shark, also known as the great white, white pointer, white shark, or white death, is a species of large lamniform shark which can be found in the coastal surface waters of all the major oceans.

This shark doesn't look ugly - ElSherlock

How dare you insult Jaws - iliekpiez

Not ugly though scary - LostGuyfrom2018

Not ugly. It’s cool! - Userguy44

13 Hagfish Hagfish

AAH! - PhoenixAura81

Yikes! - Userguy44

14 Sea Cucumber Sea Cucumber

Just look at it. It looks really evil with those eyes. - Userguy44

15 Viperfish Viperfish A viperfish is any species of marine fish in the genus Chauliodus. Viperfish are characterized by long, needle-like teeth and hinged lower jaws. A typical viperfish grows to lengths of 30 to 60 cm.

I'm surprised this fish wasn't on the list already. This is much uglier than a Lamprey or a Frilled Shark.

Scary looking fish with Razor Sharp teeths. This fish lives below 4000 meters deep in the ocean at day time. At night, this fish swims near the surface, deep sea fisherman's had caught some but cannot survive in captivity - LostGuyfrom2018


Cool. - Ashes

16 Axolotl Axolotl

This one's not too bad. - SomeRandomGuy14

Aww. That little creature is so cute! - PhoenixAura81

Troll item? - Userguy44

It’s kinda cute! - Firemist

17 Stonefish Stonefish Synanceia is a genus of fish of the family Synanceiidae, the stonefishes, whose members are venomous, dangerous, and even fatal to humans. It is one of the most venomous fish known. They are found in the coastal regions of the Indo-Pacific.

Don't step on it. No, really. Don't. - Cyri

I don't think these are ugly but they are so scary

These fish are not only ugly and venomous (their venom when in contact with another organism is extremely painful and even lethal), but their spines that carry the venom can pierce through SHOES! Now I don’t think I’ll walk on an Indo-Pacific ocean floor without metal shoes like a knight would wear (it can’t pierce through that, right?! ). - PhoenixAura81

18 Alaskan King Crab

If you hate spiders, I’d rather you stay away from this guy.

19 Spider Crab
20 Lion's Mane Jellyfish
