Despite this, however, octopus-type villagers have no unique reactions to being gifted with an octopus during fish requests in Animal Crossing: 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.
