This subject contains information from the Expanded Cthulhu Mythos, and not based on H.P. Lovecraft's works directly. The Great Ones or Other Gods are the so-called "gods" of The Dreamlands, but they are not as powerful as the Great Old Ones and are not even as intelligent as most humans. However, they are protected by the Outer Gods, especially Nyarlathotep. While they once lived on peaks across the world they were driven off of lower mountains by the spread of humanity until they had to leave earth entirely, leaving only a mark on Mount. Ngranek. The Great Ones now rule from their hidden fortress of Kadath, whose location in time and space is unknown. As well as occasionally returning to white capped Thurai,  Lerion and Hatheg-Kla on cloud ships under the cover of a light mist, they abandoned Kadath for a brief period for the "sunset city" that Randolph Carter conjured in his dreams.

In Marvel Comics (ADJ), the Other Gods are confused with the Great Old Ones often enough with to be categorized the same.

Nyarlathotep is the only known Other God[1] (instead of being one of the Outer Gods).
