This 8-bit Cthulhu t-shirt may just be the closest gamers are going to get to actually fighting the mountain-sized monster in a video game. Still, the thought alone of a game featuring H.P. Lovecraft's most famous creation is enough to satisfy geeks everywhere.

The 8-bit Cthulhu t-shirt includes the iconic Final Fantasy life bar and denotes that Cthulhu has 9999 HP (health points), the maximum amount of points a creature can physically have. This t-shirt is literally a collision of all awesome things nerd-related and I'm thankful this thing exists.
