Jelly the Octopus is an unused boss who would have been one of the bosses for The Airship stages.
He is a yellow octopus with cyan, triangular eyebrows and white and lavender tentacles with cyan blobs between each tentacles. He has a yellow antenna with a pink tip which can turn cyan when parried.
Jelly simply idles while looking at the player, before moving around. He can only be damaged by having his antenna parried; once it is parried, he will speed up a bit.
The King's Leap utilizes the parry mechanic to defeat the minibosses.
