Octopi (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 so far, making them the rarest villager type. Octavian is the only octopus to appear in every game in the series. In fact, Octavian was the only octopus in the series until Dōbutsu no Mori e+. There are no peppy, snooty, uchi, or smug octopi. Another interesting detail is that no octopi have the same personality type. Marina is the only female octopus so far.

  • They are the only villager type to share the same species as capturable creatures.
    • Despite this, however, octopus-type villagers have no unique reactions to being gifted with an octopus during fish requests in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.
