The Giant Octopus (大ダコ,   Oodako?, lit. Large Octopus) of the Planet of the Monsters continuity is a giant octopus-like kaiju created by Toho that first appeared in Godzilla: Monster Apocalypse, a prequel novelization for the 2017 film, Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters.

History

Godzilla: Monster Apocalypse

Alongside Ebirahs, Giant Octopuses were detected by US forces during searches for Godzilla, humanity regarded these monsters as "subspecies of monsters".

The Giant Octopus inhabited the Pacific Ocean and had been attacking and sinking fishery vessels and transportation ships two to three times per year.

The timing of its activities was possibly before the appearance of Godzilla, as it was said that since Godzilla took the Pacific Ocean as its territory, not only humans but also other monsters were scared off by Godzilla's presence. Additionally, corpses of monsters had been confirmed occasionally since Godzilla appeared. It's not clear whether the Giant Octopus was one of those.

Ability

Monsters (possibly all) in this continuity was said to be able to absorb electromagnetic waves, and thus able to make surprise attacks on urban areas.
