* ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' has Octopus villagers. They're notable for being one of three species that aren't mammals or birds (the others being alligators and frogs, one of two that are also fish that can be caught (other being frogs) and the only one that's based on an invertebrate. They're also the rarest villager as there's only 3 of them in the whole series.

* [[http://www.comicvine.com/octoboss/4005-54336/ Octoboss]], a minor ''ComicBook/{{Invincible}}'' villain, is a horrifying anthropomorphic octopus who straddles the line between {{Humanoid Alien}} and {{Starfish Alien}}. His head and hands are all masses of [[{{Super Strength}} super-strong]] {{Combat Tentacles}}. Since ''Invincible'' is in part a [[{{Franchise/SpiderMan}} Spider-Man]] homage, Octoboss is probably based loosely on {{ComicBook/Doctor Octopus}}.

His best prank involved shorting out the lights of the aquarium by shooting water at them (they have since moved the lights so he cannot do that anymore).

* ''Film/FindingDory'' uses both the "comical" category and the "evil" one. As mentioned above we have Hank from the "comical" category, the "evil" category is taken over by the GiantSquid that Dory, Marlin, and Nemo meet while looking for Dory's family. The squid attempts to eat Nemo before being crushed to death.
