Octo Paganini is a Belgian supervillain from an episode of The Tick animated series. Though his first name is Octo, he resembles a spider more than an Octopus, so it appears that the name simply follows the numeric theme and not an animal theme as well. He is a musical affecionado, and due to having six arms, can play two, or even three violins at a time potentially, though he is only shown playing two in the episode. He is named after Itallian violinist Niccolo Paganini.
