Update on the Everything's Squishier with Cephalopods cleanup/split:

Both drafts have been taken over by Dr.No Puma given my own time being taken up by a lot of other projects. Thanks again!

Funny Octopus has now been launched; Scary Squid is still in TLP. Examples where it's just "generic monster with tentacles" have provisionally been placed in the draft Instant Horror, Just Add Tentacles.

Ergo, we could do with some more contributors so we can get the second draft off the ground. Since one of the tropes is now also live, should we cut the "Comical Cepholopods" section on the page?

A That Show But With Samurai example: Samurai Pizza Cats. Basically a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles clone, but with cats that are samurai rather than turtles that are ninja.

I thought we already had a trope for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles clones.

So it seems that Tentacled Terror was launched, which means that Everything's Squishier with Cephalopods is now just a page for "Cephalopods exist". Suggest that the page be dewicked (changed to Funny Octopus, Tentacled Terror, or other tropes where appropriate), and make Everything's Squishier with Cephalopods into a disambiguation page.
