Octus, called Octar (オクター) in the Japanese manual, is a Badnik from the 16-bit version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 found in Oil Ocean Zone. It resembles an octopus, which tends to stay on the ground and then jump up to fire a bullet horizontally towards you, but it can still be simply taken out with a spin attack. A different behavior for this Badnik was discovered in the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 "Simon Wai" prototype, where the Badnik flies away after shooting its projectile.
Octuses return exclusively in the Wii U version of Sonic Lost World with a redesign, adapted to the art style as other Badniks in the game. They appear in Tropical Coast Zone 4, sneaking on water surfaces; in Frozen Factory Zone 4, floating up on the oil puddles and firing projectiles during the factory parts; and in Silent Forest Zone 3, skidding with their tentacles on the ground and shooting projectiles against the player.
