No living leviathans are currently thought to exist in the northern continent; however, their skeletons litter the coasts of Orr and elsewhere. A fisherman from the village of Auld Red Wharf claimed to have once caught one in Viathan Lake, giving the lake its name, but it is not known if this actually happened.
In 1219 AE, a prominent leviathan nicknamed "the Maw" was turned into a Risen servant of Zhaitan during the Great Tsunami, and terrorized the Sea of Sorrows for 40 years thereafter, until its (final) death at the hands of Macha. Its corpse can be seen off the shore of Claw Island, along with the wreckage of the Pride.

- Concept art
- Although no living leviathans exist in-game, two models for them do exist (one blue, and one brown).
- The leviathans of Guild Wars 2 are unrelated to the Leviathan of Guild Wars Factions; based off of Solid Ocean Fractal, The Leviathan is likely to be an Undersea Wurm.
- Leviathans may have inspired the Sly Crew to name their flagship The Dark Leviathan.
