Appearances Ecco: Defender of the Future

The Gate Keeper is a giant octopus living within the caves outside of the Cave of Secrets. It is the Ecco: Defender of the Future equivalent of Eight Arms.

The creature guards the exit of the level which leads to the Cave of Secrets. Up until Ecco discovered its lair, the giant octopus lived in total darkness. As such it is well aware of its surroundings.


The octopus does not move from its spot, but it is still formidable. Its projectile attack involves spitting pink gas at intruders. Its main attack is to grab Ecco with its tentacle, constrict, squeeze and then throw him back. Ecco managed to pass by after a fellow dolphin acted as a decoy and took the attack for him.
