Octodad is the main character and protagonist of the Octodad series, currently featuring in Octodad and Dadliest Catch.

While the audience is aware of Octodad's true identity, and likely think it is obvious that he is really an octopus and not a human, everyone in the game is oblivious to his tentacles and octopus-like face, and believe that he is really a human being. The slogan for the game Octodad, "Nobody Suspects A Thing", is clear evidence of this fact.
