Sanitized Octarians are a variation of Octarians that have been sterilized or disinfected.[1] They resemble ordinary Octarians but with different coloration.

These Octarians have been sterilized with a type of primordial ooze created by Commander Tartar. The process of sanitizing results in the Octarian losing all sense of free will, allowing them to be controlled similar to robots as seen with the dialogue from Sanitized Octolings. Marina notes that the sanitized Octarians appear to have no pulse or signs of life.

Appearance

Sanitized Octarians are visually distinct from normal Octarians by their coloration: a blue-to-neon yellow gradient on their tentacles and eyes with black sclera and glowing aqua blue irises. Elite versions (such as Santizied Elite Octolings, Sanitized Deluxe Octocopters, and Sanitized Deluxe Twintacle Octotroopers) have a darker blue and the same yellow in the gradient.

Their voices sound more digital and compressed and, when splatted, they briefly leave glowing blue pixels and glitch-like squares. Instead of the glitter-like effect that ink has in Octo Canyon, the Sanitized Octarians' ink resembles dishwasher detergent or hand sanitizer.

Sanitized Octarians were first seen in the Octo Expansion. The sanitation is implied to cause the affected to lose their free will.[2]

Trivia

  • Although the implication is that Octarians lose all free will after sanitization, biographies about Dedf1sh describe how "little of her former self remains", showing that, at least in some cases, Sanitized Octarians do retain some memories.
  • The Japanese name for the Belly Phase can be translated as the "Stomach Sanitization Site". In this level, Octarians are seen coming out of blue-green liquid containers with Octarians packed inside boxes. Concept and commentary from HaikaraWalker reveals that the Octarians are Sanitized in the facility and being sent from the Belly Phase to their respective test sites.[3]
