An Octopod is a small orange octopus that appears in Yoshi's Safari.

Three Octopods, varied in size, from Yoshi's Safari.

Mario and Yoshi encounter Octopods in the fourth level of the Light Realm, Crescent Coast. While traveling underwater, they have to fight off an assault from these weak creatures. The Octopot, a giant jar-like creature, launches wave after wave of Octopods, which crawl along the sea floor towards Mario and Yoshi. The Octopods can be destroyed with a couple blasts from the Super Scope. After Mario shatters the Octopot, no more Octopods are produced.
