Despite their name indicating they are Octocopters, Missile Octocopters are similar in appearance to Octobombers, wearing red goggles and a helmet with a muzzle on its top. This enemy flies in the same manner as standard Octobombers, but instead of launching Splat Bombs from its hat, the hat fires barrages of Tenta Missiles instead. They act very similar to the Octostrikers from Octo Valley in that both of them can attack the player from anywhere in the stage, and the two have similar goggles and helmets. However, Missile Octocopters lack the ability to predict the player's movement and do not possess the large amount of health that Octostrikers have.
Octocopter is a portmanteau of Octopus and Helicopter.
