Trivia

  • The front symbols on the shirt loosely resemble the Japanese word for "octopus" (たこ tako), while the back has text resembling the English word "octopus". This is in contrast to shirts such as the White Tee and Yellow Layered LS which have symbols resembling both the English and Japanese word for "squid" (いか ika).
  • One of the rhinestones from the front symbol of the shirt seems to have fallen off as there appears to be missing one bead in the bottom-right corner of the symbol.
  • This item, along with Black Cuttlegear LS, Octarian Retro and Red Cuttlegear LS, were the first Cuttlegear gear items to be made available in shops.
  • The price of Cash 8,888 is a reference to the eight arms an octopus has, hence the name "Octo Tee". Similar theming of the number eight is prevalent throughout the Octo Expansion.
  • The Octo Tee exists in real life, sold by KOG.
