DC Database

Topo was a favored pet and ally to Aquaman.

Topo appeared to be gifted with a greater intelligence than that commonly attributed to the average octopus. Topo possessed greater dexterity than a standard octopus and was even known to have developed a keen ear for music.


  • Unique Physiology: As an octopus, Topo possesses eight powerful tentacles, can breathe underwater, squeeze through tiny apertures, and presumably change the color and texture of his skin.


  • Swimming: The average octopus can swim about 25 miles per hour; the average human rarely exceeds 4 miles per hour.


  • Water Dependency: Like all octopuses, Topo requires water to breathe, and can only crawl slowly on land.

  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985–86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
