Octocopters are Octarian enemies that possess the ability to fly and shoot slow-moving balls of purple ink.
Octocopters are small Octarian fighters equipped with a large propeller helmet that allows them to hover. They have small legs adorned with what appear to be helicopter landing skids, but they are never seen using them, as they are always in the air. Octocopters hover in one area until they see Agent 3, at which point they become visibly agitated and begin to move, with difficulty, towards the Inkling. They are capable of firing slow-moving balls of purple ink, like Octotroopers, and can be splatted easily from a close distance. However, firing ink at them from far away will slightly knock them backwards, possibly knocking them out of range.
Octocopters appear in 13 Octo Valley missions as well as one boss mission.
- When Octocopters are in groups and cannot see Agent 3, they will sometimes appear to be dancing.
