Octon, known as Takobaru (タコバル?) in Japan, is a virus from the Mega Man Battle Network series. It is a stationary octopus-like virus that shoots explosive balloons out of its mouth. The balloon starts at a set damage. The more damage done to it before it explodes, the more the damage of the blast will increase. When it blows up, it will damage all panels of the side it's on.
