Talk:DJ Octavio

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki


The page says that the killer wail is smaller/slower, but in my experience fighting him, I think it's the same, or variant on the phase.Ash4fun (talk) 21:21, 3 November 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I was curious about that too, and looks like the article's right. Here's a crappy little screenshot of Octavio's Killer Wail, compare it to Killer Wail2.jpg. Even if we account for the fact that part of Octavio's is clipping through the floor, it's still a lot smaller. --Bzeep! talk 21:46, 3 November 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Shouldn't we have more images of him in Splatoon 2? All the images are of the first game.--Doughnutsprinkles8 (talk) 09:25, 10 May 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Is Octavio an Octoling?

Since he does have a humanoid form (as shown in the Sunken Scroll), wouldn't that technically make Octavio an octoling (who just chooses to stay in Octopus form)? -DJParticle (talk) 08:51, 11 September 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Actually, you have a point! That should be added to the trivia~ Splattersky (talk) 04:15, 13 September 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Bringing this back up after a couple of months (and being my first contribution in a way-to-long time), don't you think we have enough evidence by now to change the species listed in the info box from Octarian to Octoling? I mean, we have pictures, and unlike most regular Octarians, he has a whole Octopus body, rather than just being a couple of tenticles. tecanec (talk) 08:58, 5 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'd say yes, but as this hasn't really been officially confirmed, I guess we could add a ref to it explaining something like "Assumed from multiple pictures of DJ Octavio in a humanoid form" or something? Splattersky (talk) 02:55, 6 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Or maybe we could say "Octarian (Likely Octoling)" and add a note pointing towards the evidence? Personally, I think there are plenty of evidence to the point of it almost being practically confirmed, and I also think there's actually less evidence proving otherwise, but I of course don't know if there's a reason for Octavio being listed as an Octarian other than there being less clear evidence at the time, so I won't break anything. tecanec (talk) 10:16, 6 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Octavio's Control of the Octarians

It is often assumed that DJ Octavio controls the Octarians through music in a "slave-like manner". However, the actual statement of game composer Toru Minegishi is translated thus:

"I created all of them exactly as something similar to techno. First I thought to completely change the musical direction so it would be easy to recognize that they are different from the types of songs used in Turf War. Octo Valley has a feeling of being alone behind closed doors, even with Cuttlefish giving orders, and that is in contrast with noisy and hectic sports-like image of Turf War. Also it's like the Octo side broadcasts their music in order to control the many Octarians. DJ Octavio and his direct subordinates compose the music. Octarians somehow cross talk into the protagonist's headphones. The 'zazzazzazza' rhythm gives an image of controlled Octarians marching and that mechanical feeling is put together in techno." ---

This doesn't quite say that all the Octarians are forcefully brainwashed and never follow Octavio out of a more genuine sense of loyalty and the interview itself is more about the inspiration for the game's general sound design. I would also like to call some attention to the fact that Marina in the Octo Expansion has stickers for both The Squid Sisters AND DJ Octavio on the front of her laptop, while also pointing out that the DJ Octavio Mem cake in the Expansion implies that Agent 8 feels some guilt over leaving Octavio's side. Both of these seem strange if Octavio is just controlling everyone against their will. Anyway, I edited the original text to better convey what Minegishi actually said.

octolings that hear the calamari inkantation are freed of the brainwashing and try to escape. both agent 8 and marina heard it so that explains why marina has the stickers of the squid sisters and octavio and agent 8 feels guilt and stuff like that. did you play octo expansion? i feel like you didnt...

have we ever considered that the Inkantation is a form of "brainwashing" instead? it seems much more likely. my personal theory is that they're just dumb squid people who think the natural movin' and groovin' they feel when they hear music is a form of 'brainwashing' Aeonium (talk) 07:04, 28 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Page quote

The fact that Octavio, of all characters, doesn't have his own quote at the top of the page is absolutely criminal! (I mean, we could fill up a page with his great lines, but that's another matter.) Here are some of my favourite candidates:

  • "GYAH HA HA! I'ma remix your face!" (First ever spoken line.)
  • "Slimy little hipster!" (One of my favourite insults of his.)
  • "It's time to... D-D-D-DROP THE SEA BASS!" (The ultimate classic.)
  • "BLGRRARGH! Splat you, Squid Sisters! I CAN'T RESIST YOUR POPPY GROOVE!" (Final phase rematch from S2. Maybe not the best example, but I like it.)

Any thoughts, or ideas of your own? GloverMist (talk) 18:49, 27 June 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The purpose of the lead section in articles is to summarize a topic and entice readers to look at the rest of the article. I don't really like the quotes I see at the top of some of these articles, they make me think people put the quote there for the sake of having a quote there. If searching for a quote to supplement the lead, try to find one that summarizes the character and entices readers to learn more about the character. For example, the quotes at the lead of the Judd or Shifty Station articles are good. That's my advice. Heddy (talk) 00:35, 28 June 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You know, those are very, very good points, I see what you mean. Thanks for the advice! GloverMist (talk) 08:17, 28 June 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Dialogue page?

can we give him a dialogue page? we should be able to read his quotes. Splatgoddess288 (talk) 19:31, 26 July 2019 (UTC)Splatgoddess228Reply[reply]

Octavio cloning?

In sunken scroll 24 in Splatoon 2, it mentions sentient tentacles. Could these be Octavio's?InkyBlack (talk) 13:23, 7 June 2020 (UTC)InkyBlackReply[reply]

Deepsea metro poster

The Trivia section mentions a poster in the DeepSea metro related to Octavio. After searching around the maps ingame on and off for a year, I still haven't been able to find anything that resembles this. Does anyone have a picture? Aeonium (talk)

@Aeonium I haven't seen it myself. I added {{citation needed}} to the page; hopefully someone is able find it. If not, that claim can be removed. Heddy (talk) 00:58, 4 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks! There IS the blue octopus poster on the left wall where you enter the metro (by Spyke's cafe), but it looks more like a movie poster and the text doesn't really resemble the letters "octavi". Aeonium (talk) 22:41, 27 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sure, you can add any photo as long as it has to do with the page. dedf1sh07[talk] 02:52, 24 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I am Octavio Remix

Spoiler Alert: When you fight DJ Octavio in Splatoon 3, a different version of I am Octavio plays while fighting him. Should we add that song in the songs section? Randomguy (talk) 19:49, 12 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Octavio's 'end of life' translation in mynavi interview

Although the source was fixed I believe there are other ways this sentence can be both translated and interpreted: [DJタコワサ将軍に関しては末期のテンションですね。] First, looking at 末期, it can be translated as such things other than an 'end of life' or illness-related terminality. What changes its context here in my opinion is the use of 'tension' right after. In Japanese, although a loan word, 'tension' is used in slightly different contexts with a bit of a different meaning. From 1. (emotional) tension; anxiety 2. (highness of) spirits; (good) mood; excitement; energy Aeonium (talk) 13:54, 6 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

(it cut off the rest of what i said, cool)
Therefore I believe that the statement can be interpreted as 'he's anxious about saving his people in time before the domes fully deterioate.' Maybe the use of the 'terminal' kanji could even be referring to the domes.
(also, a slightly unrelated but supplemental nerd fact: great pacific octopuses live to be 5 years, compared to the average squid's lifespan of 1 to 2. given, we don't know their actual exact species ingame, but if you multiplied these lifespans by 100 you would get something that fits why cuttlefish is so physically aged compared to octavio. if this is true the dude's even got a few centuries left.)

Interesting...maybe this could go under trivia? Pretty cool facts nonetheless.   ArivakiVA   S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png JPTGoldDynamoRoller.png S3 Badge Classic Squiffer 5.png (talk) 18:24, 6 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
