That nasty-looking scallywag is an Octobomber.

Octobombers are common Octarian fighters in Octo Valley and Octo Canyon. They launch Splat Bombs at Agent 3 and Agent 4. They are introduced in the Last Checkpoint of Rise of the Octocopters.


Octobombers are big flying Octarians that wear a helmet similar to those of a Octocopter but with a different nozzle that the Splat bomb comes out of. They are colored dull orange with two large tentacles that somewhat look like wings and three shorter ones on the back. Octostrikers are very similar to this Octarian, only bigger with a darker color and different helmet that comes with a visor. In Splatoon 2, Deluxe Octobombers appear with a maroon color and a pair of thrusters that allow them to dodge from left to right quickly.

Their sole attack is an Octarian version of the Splat Bomb, launched in a small arc with a few seconds in between each bomb. Their mobility and aim are poor, allowing for the player to splat them in a variety of ways, including Gushers, Balloon Fish or bombs of their own.

They appear to be wearing little skis instead of shoes and they hover around one Inkling's height of the ground.
