Despite this, however, octopus-type villagers have no unique reactions to being gifted with an octopus during fish requests in Pocket Camp, as well as having no reaction to being gifted an octopus in Animal Crossing: New Horizons (although they do in other games).
Octopuses as a villager species are especially unique in multiple ways:
They are the only invertebrate species of villagers.
They are the only fully aquatic species of villagers.
They are the only villagers with more than two legs.
