Jelly the Octopus is an unused boss who would have been one of the bosses for The Airship stages.

Description[]

Appearance[]

He is a yellow octopus with cyan, triangular eyebrows and white and lavender tentacles. He also has a ring of cyan spheres around his ‘neck’. He has a yellow antenna with a pink tip which can turn cyan when parried.

Battle[]

Jelly simply idles while looking at the player, before moving around. The only way to damage him is parrying his antenna; once it is parried, he will speed up a bit.

Legacy[]

The King's Leap utilizes the parry mechanic to defeat the minibosses, The Knight use a very similar mechanic to be defeated, that is parrying the top of his body.

Trivia[]

  • He is the only revealed boss of The Airship stage.
  • Jelly probably is the inspiration for The King's Leap levels mechanic.
  • Despite him and the Stork being listed in the debug menu, clicking on them softlocks the game due to the assets being removed.

Inspirations and Similarities[]

  • This unused boss battle may have been inspired by the battle with Squid Baron from the Shantae series.
  • Jelly the Octopus may have been inspired by other cartoons featuring an octopus; such as Frolicking Fish (1930), The Beach Party (1931), Plane Dumb (1933), or Merbabies (1938).
