Boss Appearance

The Octo Samurai resembles an Octoling but much larger in size and more masculine and fat. The Octo Samurai has a heavyweight and round body that is similar to as a sumo wrestler, has small eyes, and sports a tentacle on the back of his head in a ponytail. He wears a black leather motorcycle jacket with golden embroidery on the sides and a print of DJ Octavio on the back. He carries a weapon that is similar to a Dynamo Roller that can change positions vertically or horizontally to the handle, and can combine with his unicycle to form a vehicle which Sheldon calls "The Octocycle".


In order to defeat the Octo Samurai, you must splat it to make it drop its Dynamo Roller on the ground. The roller grows into a larger form and a tentacle pops out of it. Attack the tentacle 3 times and you win.

Phase 1

The boss will fling its Roller in a similar fashion to Inklings, but has a very wide range. The Samurai can also get on top of his weapon and charge towards the player, leaving behind a wide trail of ink. If he gets a direct his, its an instant Splat. The boss takes a break every time he does this, letting the player get in free hits. He always does a backward jump before doing his charge attack.

Phase 2

The Octo Samurai's roller is upgraded

The Octo Samurai does everything he does from phase 1, but he has two new attacks:

  • He jumps towards the player and does a vertical swing with splat roller.
  • He quickly spins around with his roller leaving a circle formation of ink. A direct hit is an instant splat. Before performing this attack, his eyes give off a distinctive shine.

Phase 3

The Octo Samurai unable to respawn

Most of his attacks get more vicious, and he has a new one:

  • The Octo Samurai performs three, extremely long-ranged vertical swings.
  • He chases you when he does his charge attack. He still takes a break after this.
  • He will always swing three times in a row when he does his regular swing.
  • He will always follow up his jump attack with three vertical swings. These swings are not as long-range as his other vertical swing attack.

Translation notes

  1. "Dosukoi" is a meaningless word that sumo wrestlers chant before fights
  2. "Aan de rol" probably comes from the Dutch phrase "aan de rol gaan" and is a pun on "rol" (roll). Oddly enough, the meaning of this phrase is rather inappropriate. Because of that, it must come from one of the many different phrases that starts with "aan de" with "rol" replacing a word to create a pun.
