Octos sprite
Octos appears only in Skyworld, where its attack pattern is similar to that of the enemy Commyloose. They are more powerful than Commyloose, though, with more hit points and attack power, but reward Pit with more Hearts and points/experience.


Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters

In the Game Boy sequel, Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters, there are monsters called Octus, and while the artwork does not resemble that of Octos from the first Kid Icarus, their in-game appearance and overall attack pattern is just like that of Octos.

Kid Icarus: Uprising

Octos is one of the many enemies confirmed to return in the long-awaited third installment, Kid Icarus: Uprising. They have been seen during the flying segments of the game, squirting rings of ink at Pit as he flies.

Kid Icarus: Uprising - Idol Description

"An Octos is a flying relative of the octopus, a water-based animal you may have seen in monster movies. It sprays ring-shaped jets of ink from its mouth that looks fun to fly through but will hurt you if touched."
