Octodiscos look very similar to Octoballs, but resemble disco balls and wear headgear with an aerial screw that they use to fly constantly. When one notices the player, it creates a shield similar to the Big Bubbler that blocks the player's ink from the outside. If there are other Octarians nearby, the Octodisco will follow them to protect them. While its shield is active, it is vulnerable to attacks from above; alternatively, the player can go inside the shield to defeat the Octarians which will destroy the barrier, leaving the Octodisco vulnerable. The shield will also deactivate automatically after being active for too long, though the Octodisco will soon reactivate it. When the shield is activated, the Octodisco will spin around and produce a sound that gradually gets slower, like the Big Bubbler. If there are no Octarians for them to protect, they fly low to the ground and panic.
