Miracle world was already mentioned but there is also an octopus in Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle.
There is also a robot octopus in Turbo Sub on the Lynx
Oh and the Tentacle Beast of Tramm from Eat Lead:TROMH
Donkey Kong Country has octopus baddies
Yeah, the DKC series has lots of them. I still remember the sound they make; it sounds like someone winding up a top three times. I'm also pretty sure there is an octopus boss in the new Donkey Kong Country Returns, although I haven't gotten that far yet.
Also, although I'm not positive on it, there are probably octopi in both Endless Ocean games and Aquanaut's Holiday on PS1. I guess we can also include the original Octopus Game & Watch, which they re-released on one of the Club Nintendo Game & Watch collections for DS.
BTW, there is no octopus cooler than launch octopus. He is the f*cking man.
Edit: I was so curious, I found some more. Apparently the Legend of the Mystical Ninja has one and Mohawk and Headphone jack has one on the bloody cover. Go figure. Too bad I will never play that game long enough to see it.

No, I'm Mr. Big Lucky Flavor!
If you're including Krakens in this (and why shouldn't you? Krakens are just a more awesome octopus :P) you can add Shining Force II and Shining Force III Scenario 2.
Azure Dreams has Octopi and Krakens!
I reject your reality and substitute it for one of my own!
One of the 'ships' you can use in the Parodius games is an octopus!

Surprised no one's mentioned good ol' Game & Watch OCTOPUS.
The Goonies for the C64 / Atari 800
Dragon Warrior series. King Squid, Squid Kid, Tentacular, etc. Also, the first one that popped into my head was Ultros from FF6, but it was already mentioned...one of Relm's few shining moments in the game, hahahaha.
Sonic 2, Oil Ocean Zone.

Just last night, I found a giant octopus in Kirby's Return to Dreamland in level 3-3. I am fairly certain it was an octopus and not a squid. As far as the cousins of octopus go, there is the Squishy character in the Kirby series.
Its actually an IKA ( Squid ) not a TAKO ( Octopus )
Octopus Characters you can find in almost every Konami Game ( Parodius, Gradius, Goemon, Wai Wai world, etc ) due its one of the cute "characters" you can see in Japan on every kids scribblebook./ schoolpaintings or even signs in the city. In Europe they paint bunnys, mouse and dogs - in Japan Squids, octopus cats and piggys.
Donkey Kong for the Gameboy has an octopus- a really annoying octopus.
Just found an octopus in Super Mario Land for the Gameboy in level 2-3.
Mega Turrican has something similar for a boss although it does not have 8 tentacles.
Just found another to throw onto the pile. This is from Saiyuuki World 2- Tenjoukai no Majin, the Famicom version of Whomp 'Em.
