This article is about the species. For the fish, see Octopus (fish).

Octopuses (タコ Tako?) are a species of villager in the Animal Crossing series. They have multiple long tentacles as legs and two more tentacles as arms. There are only four octopus villagers, making them the rarest villager type. There is one jock octopus, one normal octopus, one cranky octopus, and one lazy octopus. There are no peppy, snooty, sisterly, or smug octopuses. All octopuses, except Inkwell, appear in Pocket Camp.

Octavian is the only octopus to appear in every game in the series.

Octopuses have the rare distinction of being both a fish and a villager species. This is a trait only shared with frogs.

Trivia

Octavian requesting an Octopus.

  • They are one of only two villager types to share the same species as capturable creatures, the other being frogs.
    • 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.
