He pops up in the Clash of the Titans movie, and I believe he was a big monster in the original Final Fantasy video game.

Generically its a large, multi-armed sea creature.

ps, That is an awesome link Mr. Inquisitor.

And in 40K, you have Kraken bolter ammo, Kraken as the name of a Hive Fleet, and Kraken as Tyranid creatures protecting the rest of the fleet.

The original Kraken was apparently this mythilogical giant squid that would devour ships. Inspired the sea-monster in "20 000 leagues under the sea"

Actually original originally it was a huge whale. The whole Kraken-as-giant-squid didn't start until Europeans made contact with Eastern sailors, who caught squid almost as much as regular fish.
