Octotzos are rare large enemies that appear in Kirby Mass Attack.

Physical Appearance

Octotzo is a giant, red octopus-like enemy with a droopy forehead and scowling eyes. It has a yellow, circular mouth, fins, five visible tentacles, and shiny skin. It also has a ring attached to its back to hold in the air it's filled with.


Octotzo only appears in the 6th stage of Dedede Resort. It shoots out three large bullets to attack. It cannot be defeated in usual fashion (because of its rubbery body), but the Kirbys can grab the ring on its back and pull it off to let out the air it's filled with. When this happens, it will fly around, losing all of its air as it does so, and give up a single Apple, despite its size.


Octotzo's name is a combination of octopus, which is what the enemy is based on, and Shotzo, which refers to its ability to fire bullets like that enemy. It is also likely combined with Flotzo, another enemy from the Kirby series that it greatly resembles.


  • Octotzo might share a relationship to Flotzo and Shotzo, as Octozo appears to be a larger version of Flotzo and shoots bullets like Shotzo.
  • Octotzo deflates incorrectly; the key ring is pulled out of the back of its head, yet the air escapes through its underside.
