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 his species. His name is also a reference to Gaius Octavius, the first emperor of ancient Rome, who later adopted the name Augustus. He is most notable for being the only octopus until Dōbutsu no Mori e+, where Marina, a normal villager, appears as an islander.

HouseOctavian's house has the Space Theme like Ribbot, with the Lunar Horizon (a star-clustered wall) and the Lunar Surface (a cratered, moon floor). 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, and Octillery, a Pokémon. As both games are also made by Nintendo, it's possible this was done purposefully.
- If the player catches an octopus and Octavian is in the vicinity, he will become angry, telling the player "I saw what you just did there!"
