Octopus will move up and down while constantly firing lasers from his tentacles as well as a bullet spread from his mouth. The tentacles can all be destroyed, severely lowering his firepower and making the fight easier. His weak spot is between his eyes.


In Darius+, aim for the lower-right tentacles, the lower-left, the left, the upper-left, then the eye. Destroying all these components in order will destroy the enemy.

Note that the eye sometimes glitches, making the fight unwinnable. The cause of this glitch is unknown.
