"Octobella Strikes Again" is the first segment of the 5th Season 5 episode of PJ Masks.
Gekko is so anxious about facing a bully, that he stays home one night to avoid her.
The following characters appeared in the episode "Octobella Strikes Again":
The PJ Masks are chasing Romeo throughout the city. Romeo tries to zap the heroes with his Giggle Ray, but Gekko uses his shields to reflect the ray back at Romeo, sending Romeo into helpless laughter and causing his mobile lab to go haywire, losing several parts. As the PJs return home, Octobella notices the lost parts from Romeo's lab and takes them for her own purpose.
The following day, after school, Connor and Amaya are still praising Greg for his actions last night when they notice several items, such as a bench, a man's washing machine and a woman's car, have been stolen. Pondweed left on the scene of the crime tips off the PJs that Octobella is the culprit. While Connor and Amaya are ready to confront her that night, Greg doesn't want to face Octobella again since she is always out to get him in particular. He decides to sit this one out. So that night, only Catboy and Owlette go to HQ while Greg stays in bed.
Once in HQ, Catboy and Owlette see how PJ Robot is abducted by Octobella. They give chase in the PJ Sub. Catboy tries to call Greg since underwater missions are more his thing, but he and Owlette hide the fact that PJ Robot is in danger from him so Greg doesn't see the need to come. Catboy and Owlette don their scuba gear and leave the sub. In Octobella's garden, PJ Robot is being forced to construct something out of the parts from Romeo's lab and the stolen items. Catboy and Owlette arrive, but Octobella easily captures them in bubbles. Once PJ Robot is done, he too is trapped in a bubble.
The thing Octobella had PJ Robot forcibly built turns out to be Octo-Legs, which allow Octobella to go onto land. She leaves the pond and goes to Greg's House, taking the captive Catboy, Owlette and PJ Robot with her. Once there, Octobella taunts Greg for being too afraid to come to her. Greg leaves the house, ready to transform into Gekko, but Percival steals his amulet. He gives the amulet to Octobella, who takes it with her as she leaves with her prisoners.
Greg panics for a moment, but then notices one of the gadgets Romeo lost last night and that Octobella apparently missed. Armed with the gadget, Greg follows Octobella back to the park and manages to sabotage the Octo-Legs, allowing him to reclaim his amulet and finally become Gekko. As Gekko, he frees his friends and forces Octobella to retreat, though she keeps the Octo-Legs for future use. Nevertheless, Gekko thinks it doesn't matter since he plans to defeat her next time as well. The PJs shout their victory cry.
