Kanehachi MK2 (カネハチまーく２), known in English as Octoclam, is a CLA-type Medabot first introduced in Medarot 2.
Like his predecessor, Tentaclam, Octoclam is modeled after an octopus. To this end, his "face" is placed on the his chest area. Each of Octoclam's arms has an anchor attached to a wire; this can be used as a grappling hook for "Hold" attacks, reducing his enemies' speed. His six-legged base provides maximum mobility on uneven terrain.
Octoclam's CLA model may reference calamari, a dish of octopus meat. It is also likely to be a corruption of Kraken, a mythological giant squid, whose likeness is on the Medal that this Medabot is best matched with. With no references to clams, Octoclam's is based solely upon his model, just like his predecessor.
