The Kraken is, specifically speaking, supposed to be a sea monster with no distinctive traits. However, it has become fixed with the image of a big, bad-ass squid that fucks up everything whenever it appears.
You may recognize the Kraken from such things as:
1) Video games - Final Fantasy, Golden Sun, etc.
2) Literature - 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, The Kraken, etc.
3) Movies - Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, Clash of the Titans, etc.
And much more. All you need to know is that the Kraken is badass and it will own asses whenever it appears.
1) I was playing Golden Sun on my GameBoy Advance and I was making good progress when the Kraken appeared and repeatedly kicked my ass.
2) I read Michael Crichton's Sphere, which features the Kraken. Needless to say, the Kraken opened a huge can of whoop ass on the characters.
