The Octopi (or Octopuses) are the secondary antagonists of the 2014 computer-animated DreamWorks film, Penguins of Madagascar.
They are the evil minions who work for Dave and assist him in his plans to get rid of all penguins. They never speak, but make a bubbling sound that Dave can understand. Each one share the first names of famous celebrities. When Dave ordered them to do something, said action would spell out the actors' full names. Ex. "Nicholas, cage them." "Halle, bury them." "Elijah, would you please take them away." Though they are loyal and highly competent minions, they're shown to be easily distracted, such as when Skipper, Kowalski, and Rico led them away from their guard posts with slap dancing. When Dave's ray with Private's cute energy is blasted at the climax of the film and killing all of the octopi, they mysterious disappear and are not seen again.
