Tentakooks are Octarian enemies that appear in Octo Canyon, the Octo Expansion, and Return of the Mammalians.

Description

Tentakooks are Octarians that wear a yellow hard hat that covers their eyes and black mid-calf boots with bright pink roller skates, with little ink tanks. When the player comes near a Tentakook, it runs away from the player and leaves behind a thin trail of ink. It can also shoot ink from the spout on its helmet, or drop Splat Bombs while being chased. Tentakooks can carry items, usually keys, that they will drop upon being splatted.
