Nintober #121. DJ Octavio

We've covered off some of Nintendo's biggest series this year - Mario, Zelda, Pokémon, Kirby, Mii - but I couldn't skip Splatoon. It's got to be one of the most successful new IPs in recent memory. And while fighting Octavio and his huge Octobot was difficult - it was nothing compared to trying to draw it within the punishing deadline of Nintober :)

Only one more monster to go! Who could the Finale be this year? Share your guesses in the comments!

And No OctoMaw? I thought it was a Fnaf reject when I first saw it.

Not to mention he took control of Callie in Splatoon 2.

Indeed. Not mentioned because Splatoon 2 wasn't out yet when I drew this :)

Octavio's a General.

Question: Which Iteration Of The Octobot King Mech Do You Like Better? Splatoon 1 Or Spla2n 2? (Hooray For Redundancy)

I haven't reached him in Splatoon 2 yet. I'm working on it. When I'm not playing Mario Odyssey :)

It's not so much DJ Octavio... so much as his giant flying war machine with metal fists.

DJs are not scary, it's heavy metal screamers that are we should be afraid of.

probably one of the best bosses Nintendo has don in recent memory.

I think Nintendo's pretty good at doing final bosses. They're usually impressive.
EB-the-GAMER's avatar
yeah...I guess the only one that kinda lost me was Lord Fredrik from Tropical Freeze, but even then that was fun.

I just got back into Splatoon today, and completed all of the Kraken challenges, including Octavio. Coincidence?


Octolings are still the best things ever, by the way.

Quite a few Octolings could have gone on the list - but the biggest and baddest of them all had to be my choice :D
FoolForGold's avatar
Yeah, as the only Octarian that talks, Octavio is pretty cool.
However, the Octoling variety is still my favorite. I want them to be playable in the sequel, or at least have an amiibo, just like the rest of the Internet.

Nice description of Octavio! No wonder why he is one of my favorite Nintendo villains! :D

I loved that boss battle. When he pulls out the wasabi and starts spinning the decks with it, I genuinely laughed.
TigerfishAori's avatar
Yeah! The boss battle was so awesome! And I also laughed at the puns he made during the battle! Heck, by the time I saw him say that he was going to "Remix my face" I honestly couldn't help but laugh! :XD:

Great choice, but not the one this time! :)
