Octavian (おくたろう, Octarou) is a cranky, octopus villager from the Animal Crossing series, first appearing in Animal Forest. The prefix of his name, "Octa-," means eight, which is a reference to the species he is: an octopus. His name is also a reference to Octavian (a.k.a. Augustus), the first emperor of ancient Rome. He is most notable for being the only octopus until Dōbutsu no Mori e+, where Marina, a normal villager, appears as an islander.
Octavian ACCF
His initial phrase is based on the fact that octopi have suction cups on their tentacles.


Octavian is a light red octopus with a jet, which is normally associated with octopi, relocated to mimic a mouth. He has a white patch in an "x" shape on the back of his head, made out of two bandages. Being an octopus, his mouth is puckered. He has two tentacle arms with suckers and six octopus legs, adding up to be eight, as a real octopus would have. He has puffy, puckering cheeks with peachy blush marks and angry-looking, squinted eyes. His initial shirt is the Big Star Shirt. He will also carry a melon umbrella on rainy days.


Below is a brief description of the cranky personality. For more information, click here.

Octavian is a cranky villager. He may seem rude at first but will open up to you eventually if you talk to him enough and be nice to him by doing favors he asks, etc. Sometimes, if you are friends with him and the beach is in view, he will say that the sea brings back memories of his youthful days and his mama and papa. This hints that he spent his childhood near the sea. He will like fishing and all the other usual things.


Octavian's house has the Space Theme like Ribbot, with the Lunar Horizon (a star-clustered wall) and the Lunar Surface (a cratered, moon floor).
He has the Rocket, Space Shuttle, Flying Saucer, a Satellite, a Lunar Rover, Spaceman Sam, two Asteroids, the Robo-Chair, and the Robo-Stereo that plays K.K. D & B. This song (and the electronic beeping noises from the Flying Saucer) gives his home an intense space mission feel, due to the sound textures of each item. As with all villagers, items in his house may be removed or replaced after the player sends him new wallpaper, carpet, furniture and/or articles of clothing through the mail service.


Octavian bears some resemblance to an Octorok, an enemy from the Legend of Zelda series of games, and Octillery, a Pokémon. Both games are made by Nintendo.

If you catch an octopus and Octavian is in the vicinity, he will become angry, telling the player "I saw what you just did there!"
