Octopus men are animal people variants of the common octopus who can be found in savage oceans. They spawn in groups of 1-5 individuals and are generally content to keep to themselves. In terms of size, they are a little over half the weight of the average dwarf.

While they can learn and are able to join civilizations, they never do so, as they are completely aquatic and cannot survive on the surface.

Some dwarves like octopus men for their many arms and their intelligence.

Octopus men have been known to take over the bodies of Spider-men, deeming themselves to have superior intellect compared to the Spider-men.

Octopus men are a surprisingly unscrupulous race; they often feud with squid men over territory and are known to steal precious materials from them. In rare instances, squid man singers have even been kidnapped from their undersea homes and forced to perform for octopus men. Despite this, there is evidence that octopus men and squid men were on equal terms in the distant past.
