Tentakooks are Octarian enemies that appear in Octo Canyon, the Octo Expansion, and Return of the Mammalians.
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 drop Splat Bombs while being chased. Tentakooks can carry items, usually keys, that they will drop upon being splatted.
