Octavian (おくたろう, Octarou) is a cranky octopus villager from the Animal Crossing series, first appearing in Doubutsu no Mori. The prefix of his name, "octa-," means eight, which is a reference to his species. His name is also a reference to Octavian (a.k.a. Augustus), the first emperor of ancient Rome. He is most notable for being the only octopus until Doubutsu no Mori e+, where Marina, a normal villager, appears as an islander.
Octavian is a light red octopus with a jet, which is normally associated with octopuses, relocated to mimic a mouth. He has a white patch in an "x" shape on the back of his head, made out of two bandages. This probably indicates that his jet was moved from the back to the front of his head. Being an octopus, his mouth is puckered. He has two tentacle arms with suckers and six legs, adding up to be eight, as a real octopus would have. He has puffy, puckering cheeks with peachy pink marks and angry-looking, squinted eyes. His initial phrase is based on the fact that octopuses have suction cups on their tentacles. His initial shirt is the Big Star Shirt that is noble purple with a big, bright yellow star (hence its name). Octavian bears some resemblance to an Octorok, an enemy from the Zelda series of games, and Octillery, a Pokémon. Both game series are made by Nintendo. He will also initally carry a melon umbrella on rainy days.
Below is a brief description of the cranky personality. For more information, click here.
Octavian is a cranky villager. He may seem rude at first but will open up to the player eventually if they talk to him enough and be nice to him by doing favors he asks, etc. Sometimes, if the player is friends with him and the beach is in view, he will say that the sea brings back memories of his youthful days and his mother and father.

In Animal Crossing: City Folk, Octavian's house has the space theme, with the Lunar Horizon (a star-clustered wall) and the Lunar Surface (a cratered, moon floor) both obtainable from Saharah. He has the Rocket, Space Shuttle, Flying Saucer, a Satellite, a Lunar Rover, Spaceman Sam, two Asteroids, the Robo-Chair, and a Robo-Stereo that plays "K.K. D & B." This song (and the electronic beeping noises from the Flying Saucer) gives his home an intense space mission feel, due to the sound textures of each item.
