Octoballoons are octopus/balloon-like Time Monsters that appear in both Blinx: The Time Sweeper and Blinx 2: Masters of Time and Space.
In Blinx: The Time Sweeper, Octoballoons have a large, checkerboard pattern balloon and spotted legs. They come in two colours: blue (1 HP) and pink (2 HP).
Octoballoons typically hover above the ground, moving in circles until Blinx comes near. When Blinx approaches, the Octoballoon will lower itself and shoot a piece of trash out of its mouth in an attempt to hit him. Octoballoons are fairly nearsighted, though, so they can easily be defeated by shooting them from a distance.
- Prize artwork of an Octoballoon in Blinx: The Time Sweeper depicted it spitting out a boombox, though this trash does not exist in the game.
- In the Blinx: The Time Sweeper Prima Strategy Guide, the Octoballoon is mistakenly spelt as the 'Octaballoon'.
