Despite Takotchi's resemblance of an octopus, it is something else in reality. The collapsible periscope on its head extends its vision range so it can look over higher ledges, such as fences and walls. Despite taking a dislike to cold water, Takotchi loves hot baths.
The Official Tamagotchi Pet Care Guide and Record book states says about Takotchi: "This is one strange pet, mostly from a lack of attention and discipline. Through periscope-type gizmo on its head, it can see things. It likes long, hot baths and sushi."
The Nintendo Power guide to the Tamagotchi Gameboy game stated: "Takotchi has modeled itself after an Earth squid, but its multiple limbs don't give it an advantage in sports, it's an average Adult Tamagotchi."
"Tako" means octopus in Japanese.
