The Kraken is, without a doubt, the greatest weapon of Davy Jones, captain of the Flying Dutchman. The creature's origin is unknown, as is how it came into Jones' service, although it is implied to be the last of its kind. Jones uses a large hammer on board the Dutchman to summon the Kraken, always with the intent of destroying an enemy. Jones has also been known to mark certain victims with "the Black Spot", a swelling on the hand which the Kraken is drawn to (although other crewmen of the Flying Dutchman can also administer the Black Spot, only Jones can remove it). When Lord Cutler Beckett of the East India Trading Company gained control over Jones through the Dead Man's Chest (which contains Jones' heart), one of his first orders was for Jones to kill the Kraken as a test of servitude.
Battle vs. Kraken (Clash of the Titans 1981) (by CuchulainSetanta)Edit
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)
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.
