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.

In Medarot 2

Though Octoclam does not play a major role in the game, some Medafighters in rough terrains like Oboro Mountain, use him as their Medabot.

In Medabots AX

Octoclam is a Metabee Version exclusive Medabot. Charlie had some, but not all of Octoclam's parts. Hiro also has Octoclam as his partner, but Swick has been replaced by Belzelga's Hellchaos.

The player has to start with the Head Part, Hatchin.

In Medarot DS

Octoclam's model number is now CLA01-M.

In the anime

Octoclam made an appearance in an episode where it is used by Natalie, the Takoyaki-maker from Osaka. Hers has his arms replaced with Redmatador's Saber and Crow Tengu's Tornado (it's this part that lists his special ability as wind in the Medabot Vital Status). After beating him in a Robattle, Ikki and Metabee win a Swick to keep.
