Topo the Octopus teased in Aquaman 2
Topo the Octopus is a recurring character of the Aquaman storyline. Initially encountered as a baby octopus at Amnesty Bay when Arthur was six, Topo would visit Arthur at the beach over the years, developing a unique bond.
At the age of 13, Topo demonstrated a level of intelligence and understanding by responding to Arthur’s greetings and appearing after a prolonged absence. During a conversation between Arthur and Topo, Arthur reflected on a recent incident at the Boston Aquarium, where sea creatures seemingly protected him, sparking thoughts about his ability to communicate with marine life.
In the scene shown at CCXP, Atlanna assigns a reluctant ally to join Arthur on the dangerous quest: Topo. James Wan says that Topo will have a higher screen presence than the first film. Topo also plays a significant role in rescuing Orm; Arthur’s brother.
