This rare creature from Nightopia sucks in the light and produces rings, which create Dash Power for NiGHTS. The Octopaw is harmless and very cowardly; it will run for its life as soon as it sees a human. If you chase it persistently, it will shoot ink at you.

NiGHTS will occasionally challenge a visitor to make a certain number of links while chasing Octopaw. These are called "Link Challenges".


  • Concept arts reveal that a pink female-like Octopaw was originally going to be in the game, most likely at Helen's levels.
  • Octopaw is the only NiGHTS character to be based on a sea animal and not be a nightmaren.
