Candy Octopus is a special candy in Candy Crush Jelly Saga. It appears for first time in the 68th episode, Orange Ocean. The first level in which it is featured is Level 996. This element was devised by Hyper Mystery. It has the same texture as the octopus in Candy Crush Friends Saga.
The Octopus Ink acts like a Safety Square in a 3x3 area, except that every candy matched in it is worth 3,000 points. After 3 moves, the octopus ink disappears.
Tasty Tour Saga
Candy Octopus returns in Tasty Tour Saga with new mechanics. In jam levels, when a candy octopus touch a jam tile, it becomes a jam octopus. When a jam octopus matched, it explodes only once in a 3×3 area and then leaves jam instead of ink in the same area (even it tiles with blockers like multilayered icing, cupcakes, sugar chests, cake bombs, popcorn, etc). If a jam octopus is activated on tile without jam, it will leave jam instead of ink too.
In levels with soda, candy octopus can change the soda color.
It acts like a regular candy octopus. However, the octopus ink will disappear after 7 moves.
It will clear and leave ink in a whole row or column.
It will explode only once in a 5x5 area and then leave ink.
It will clear and leave ink in every candy of that color from the board.
It will transform and leave ink in every candy of the color you matched it with to its color.
It will swim off the screen, then nine new jelly fish swim onto the screen. Three jelly fishes will remove one layer from three random jellies and then leaves ink. The other six ones will swim to six random tiles without blockers and then leaves ink (they are will not remove candies and activate special candies).
It will convert the first 3 candies to striped candies, and activate them. These striped candies will leave ink in a whole row or column.
It will shoot candy octopuses in four random tiles, and activate them.
