As an octopus fish-woman, Octopako has six arms and two legs, making a total of eight appendages, all of which are slender.
She wears a tanktop and a round hat with goggles, with her long hair jutting out, as well as sandals.
In the anime, she is depicted with pink skin, dark pink lips, and blonde hair. Her hat is black and white and she wears a light pink tank top with dark pink flower pattern.
Octopako is very vain and snobbish. She only thinks of herself and generally does not care for the feelings of others, least of all Hatchan. Being raised as a celebrity, she dreams of marrying a prince. Never having stepped into Ryugu Palace, she was angry that the Straw Hat Pirates were invited by King Neptune.
Abilities and Powers
Octopako possesses the typical abilities of her race, such as the ability to breathe underwater and natural strength ten times that of an average human, and twice that underwater.
Hatchan's Sea Floor Stroll
When Hatchan met with Octopako, he became attracted to her, and tried to win her affection. Unfortunately for him, her vanity and snobbishness led to several rejections. When Hatchan started to cook takoyaki, Octopako was attracted to the smell, and demanded some while disregarding the Catfish Village's hunger problem. However, Hatchan instead gave the takoyaki to the hungry catfish, which led Octopako to once again reject the cook.
