|“||This amphibious hybrid of Plant and Water is comfortable in any environment. The Monster's 'roots' are actually powerful tentacles that carry the Oaktopus rapidly across landscapes, and propel it efficiently through water.||”|
The Oaktopus looks like a brown tree with tentacles and a face, similar to Treebeard from The Lord of the Rings. It has two teeth on its upper jaw, bulging yellow eyes, red lips and a nose, and a blue tongue. It has a beak (a feature that octopi possess) on the corner of its mouth and a wooden beard. Upon its head are two tufts of foliage (acting like hair) which strongly bear a resemblance to the PomPom's pompoms. On Shugabush Island, a nest with green bird-like creatures is found on its left "hair" tuft.
When this monster is idle, it stays in tempo by pondering-ish eye-shifting like the Toe Jammer and jerking its root-like tentacles.

On Plant Island, the Oaktopus contributes to the song by harmonizing with "Eh-shooweh-dooweh-dooh, eh-shooweh-dooweh-dooh, eh-shooweh-dooweh-dooh, shooweh-dooweh-dooh" in a low, raspy voice.
On Cold Island, the Oaktopus sings "Shoop shoop shoowep, shooweh-deeh-dooh".
On Water Island, the Oaktopus sings "Shooweh-dooweh-dooh, eh-shooweh-dooweh-dooh, eh-shooweh-dooweh-dooh, eh-shooweh-dooweh-daysh" also in a low, raspy voice.
On Psychic Island, the Oaktopus sings "Shoooooooo-dooooooo-doooooooo-doo, Shoooooo-dooooooo-doooooo-dooo, Shoooooo-dooooooo-DOOOOOOOOOO-doooooooo-dooooo..."
On Shugabush Island, the Oaktopus sings "Shooweh-dooweh-dooweh-day, shooweh-dooweh-dooh".
On Tribal Island, the Oaktopus sings "Shooweh-dooweh-day, shooweh-dooh-owww, shooweh-dooweh-day, shooweh-dooh-wowww".
On Gold Island, the Oaktopus sings "Shooweh-dehday, eh-shooweh-dehday, shooweh-deh-dayDAYday, shooweh-dehday, eh-shooweh-dehdaydayday...".
During Composer Island, attempting to add a sharp to the B4 note becomes a low "wuh" note and attempting to add a flat to the C2 note becomes a high "shoo" note.
On Shugabush Island, the Oaktopus must either be purchased with diamonds or teleported from any other island it is found on (not including Gold) once it reaches level 15.
Earning Rate and Maximum Income
Earning rate is in coins per hour and depends on Happiness % (Likes increase Happiness), also each monster has a limit to how much income it can hold at a time. Increasing the monster's level increases the limit.
Each monster needs to be fed four times before it reaches the next level. Increasing the monster's level increases the coins earned per minute, as well as the maximum coins earned.
|The food per level table:|
More info can be found in the Feeding article.
Every monster has different things that they like. For every unique object that they like that's placed near the monster, the monster's happiness will increase by 25%. Placing more than one of the same liked item near a monster will still only increase its happiness by 25%. If there's a Unity Tree on the island, items don't need to be near the monsters. Below are the things liked by Oaktopus:
- Fwog (requires level 7) (, )
- Clamble (level 9) ()
- Thumpies (level 9) ()
- Rootitoot (level 9) ()
- Shugabass (level 9) ()
- Reflecting Pool (level 6)
- Trumplite (level 11)
- Spurrit Statue (level 15) ()

Used in Breeding
|Oaktopus is used in the following breeding combinations:|
Wublin Egg Consumption
While trying to breed other monsters (particularly monsters with a very low chance of breeding), the following Wublins can be used to "dispose of" Oaktopus eggs immediately instead of putting them into a Nursery and having that Nursery not be available.
|Monster Egg||Wublin 1||Wublin 2||Wublin 3|
|1 egg||1 egg||6 eggs|
Note that bred monster eggs can only be "disposed of" into inactive Wublin statues; active Wublins do not accept monster eggs. Also note that inactive Wublin statues to which you have already disposed the number of Oaktopus eggs that Wublin accepts, will no longer be available as a "recycle bin" for such eggs.
Celestial Egg Consumption
While trying to breed other Monsters (particularly Monsters with a very low chance of breeding), the following Celestials can be used to "dispose of" Oaktopus eggs immediately instead of putting them into a Nursery and having that Nursery not be available.
|Monster Egg||Celestial 1||Celestial 2||Celestial 3||Celestial 4||Celestial 5||Celestial 6|
|15 eggs||8 eggs||12 eggs||5 eggs||5 eggs||4 eggs|
Note that bred Monster eggs can only be "disposed of" into inactive Celestial statues; active Celestials do not accept Monster eggs. Also note that inactive Celestial statues to which you have already disposed the number of Oaktopus eggs that Celestial accepts, will no longer be available as a "recycle bin" for such eggs.
