Octoguys will bounce around randomly. When Mario gets close enough to their proximity, they will shoot a ball at Mario. They aren't extremely difficult, but in groups, they can be a little more troublesome. The player will know when they will shoot as they will pull their head back.
- One of their head stems seems to be bigger than the other.
- They seem to be more troublesome in large groups.
- They are not as common as Octoombas.
