Darius, Darius Plus, Darius Alpha, Super Darius, and Darius-R versions[]

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

  • Octopus is one of the bosses with a self-explanatory name alongside Cuttle Fish and Red Crab.
  • Octopus dies once all of its tentacles are blown away, but in Darius II it still survives even without its tentacles.
