Octobots are a group of enemies in EarthBound and Mother 3. They are extraterrestrial beings, similar to Starmen. In battle, they are capable of stealing items from party members and even inflicting Paralysis.

There are four models of Octobots:


  • Interestingly, Octobots only have four tentacles, as opposed to the eight that their name suggests.
  • In the Japanese version of EarthBound, all four Octobots have a running gag in their names, where their names, in order, are Almost Octopus, Looks Like Octopus, Very Octopus, and Actual Octopus. (Marauder Octobot, Military Octobot, Mechanical Octobot, Ultimate Octobot).
