Unlike most Octarians, which appear to be severed tentacles of octopuses, DJ Octavio is an octopus in his entirety. He is a dull red-violet with darker areas around his eyes and tentacles, and appears to be perpetually angry. He wears a large gold helmet in the style of kabuto with an octopus-shaped emblem on the front, and one of the two tentacles that are always crossed in from of him bears a large, green, X-shaped scar identical to the ones seen on other bosses. He sits inside of a flying machine equipped with a pool of purple Ink and a turntable, which he plays using plentiful stalks of wasabi. The turntable also has four cannons on the front, two extendable fists and a set of thrusters allowing it to fly. Surrounding the machine is a large, magenta-colored force field, which neither Agent 3 nor their Ink can pass through. It is only visible when close to the machine, as a warning to the player that they need to push it back to a comfortable distance.
