So I commented the following on the original "Octopuses" thread, but I love the little concept I came up with and had some more to possibly add so here we go :)
Instead of throwing the octopus in the oceans of the overworld to most likely overshadow the old, poor squid, how about the lava lakes or even roofs of the nether? We have yet to have any normal, real-world animals be added to the other dimensions so it could be interesting. It for sure wouldn't just be a normal octopus but obviously a much more, devilish one of course. I think an eight-armed goblin that camouflages as nearby blocks as he sneaks up and steals the treasure out of your inventory only to run towards fire and lava and sit in the middle where he knows you can't get him. They could spawn in groups of 1-3 only on occasion in the nether wastes. Once close enough, they would splatter you with a firework of bright blue, green, or rainbow particle ink and run off giggling. It would be neat as well if you manage to catch one creeping on you, throwing some precious loot towards it could possibly tame it, giving you a little familiar that would scare off any other tricksters that dare prey on you!
