Missile Octocopters are an Octarian enemy appearing in Splatoon 2's Octo Expansion. They only ever appear as Sanitized Octarians. They are similar to Octostrikers from Octo Valley, but attack using Tenta Missiles rather than Inkstrikes.
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 top, similar to that worn by Octostrikers. This enemy flies in the same manner as a standard Octobomber, but instead of launching Splat Bombs from its mouth, it fires barrages of Tenta Missiles from its helmet. Unlike Octostrikers, Missile Octocopters lack the ability to predict the player's movement and take less damage to defeat. There is also a variant of the Missile Octocopter called the Speedy Missile Octocopter.
- The Missile Octocopter is mentioned by Marina in Ink from Above Station.
