Octobella is an antagonist and one of the nighttime villains in the PJ Masks series. She is a humanoid octopus-girl that has been living in the moat for an unknown amount of time and the arch-enemy of Gekko. She first appeared in the Season 3 episode "Gekko Everywhere" as a cameo, then made her full appearance in the Season 4 episode "Octobella."
A villainous octopus-like character who lives in the canals below the city, Octobella introduces herself as a ‘squiggly giggly octopus girl’ – but be wary of her cute facade! She lurks in her very own crystal garden where she collects and protects some very special underwater Crystals – trophies she likes to show off to the PJ Masks. She has a loyal and very speedy sidekick shrimp too called Percival.
Octobella's very possessive of the crystals and other things in the moat, which she deems as "hers," and is vengeful and unforgiving to those who she believes are stealing them from her, as shown when she tries to trap Gekko underwater forever after claiming that he took the power pondweed. She's also quite deceptive. She used the fact that the PJ Masks didn't know who she was to her advantage by pretending to be their friend so she could lure them into a trap and getting rid of Gekko.
Despite her unforgiving nature towards the PJ Masks, Octobella, like other nighttime villains, seems to have a soft spot for her sidekick, Percival, though, like how Luna Girl and Night Ninja do to the Moths and Ninjalinos, respectively, she does tend to tease him a lot as seen in "Magnet in the Moat," much to his annoyance.
Motive & Abilities
Octobella's motives include collecting crystals and getting revenge on those she believes are stealing whatever she deems "hers" in the moat, leading her, like other villains, to become an enemy of the PJ Masks.
While all the PJ Masks are her enemies, she tends to target Gekko the most, having a personal vendetta against him because he once took some power pondweed, which she considers to be her property. Nearly all her schemes are geared towards hurting or bullying Gekko, either directly or indirectly.

Octobella's body takes the form of an octopus, with tentacles on her head and six more on her lower body, implying that she is more of a hexapus. She has blue eyes and a light turquoise face with yellow markings. The majority of her body is turquoise with blue and yellow bands around her body and tentacles and one dark aqua dorsal fin each on her forearms. The tips of her tentacles glow an aqua color. However, in "Gekko Everywhere," her tentacle seems to be a darker turquoise hue, and the aqua-colored tip doesn't glow. She also wears a purple beaded necklace with a dark purple shell hanging in the middle where she places one of her magic crystals. The main crystal usually placed in there is a purple one.
