The Octopi, also known as Octopuses, are the secondary antagonists of DreamWorks' thirtieth full-length animated feature film, Penguins of Madagascar. All of them were named after famous celebrities.
The Octopi are the evil minions who work for Dave and assist him in his plans to get rid of all penguins. They never speak, but make a bubbling sound so that Dave can understand. When Dave ordered them to do something, said action would spell out the actors' full names. Ex. "Nicholas, cage them."(Nicholas Cage) "Halle, bury them."(Halle Berry) "Elijah, would you please take them away."(Elijah Wood) "Kevin, bake on!"(Kevin Bacon)
Though they are loyal and highly competent minions for the most part, they are shown to be easily distracted, such as when Skipper, Kowalski, and Rico led them away from their guard posts by playing music and dancing.
After the laser blast fired off, all Octopi, save for Dave, were not seen again, leaving their fate ambiguous.
