|“||These are Capamari's wacky kids. They all attack at once.”|
|— Cast Description • Kirby's Epic Yarn|
Octopea are enemies appearing in the game Kirby's Epic Yarn and its remake, Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. They only can be seen during the battle with Capamari and in the Capamari portion of Yin-Yarn's battle.
Octopeas are small, orange octopi that are the children of Capamari.
Octopeas attack Kirby and Prince Fluff by using a surge attack, similar to Dolphin's. The enemy will dance and spin around a bit and then move in a set direction, either vertically or horizontally. These enemies can be whipped up and thrown at Capamari, stunning him and revealing his weak spot.
Octopea is named after the species it is based on, the octopus.
Its Japanese name, オドルタコス (Odorutakosu), is a portmanteau of the Japanese word for a hopping dance, おどる/踊る (odoru); and the Japanese name for Capamari, イカスタコス (Ikasutakosu).
