Octus is a character that appears in the series published by Sonic the Comic Fleetway Editions. It is a octopus-based Badnik variant created by Dr. Ivo Robotnik.
Based on an octopus, the Octus have a round head with large eyes and a large snout. Below their head they have a grey and black disk with six ten mechanical tentacles attached, each with a suction cup. Their coloration varies though.

Stationed in the
Oil Ocean Zone, a pair of Octus tried taking down Sonic when he attacked a pollution machine, but got easily destroyed. More Octus would also ravage the  Casino Night Zone until Tails and his allies stopped them.
Years later, Octus were sent for a surprise attack on the
Freedom Fighters alongside other Badniks under the orders from Agent X. There, two modified Octus grabbed Amy and Tekno.
Powers and abilities
The Octus are capable of flight and can shoot energy blasts from their mouth.
Later models were equipped with extendable limbs.
