Yoctopus is a water-capable feral monster that is capable of surfacing and dragging a ship underwater.[1] They are considered very effective at sinking small watercraft.[2]

Real World References

Yoctopus might be a play on words "yuck" and "octopus" as the details of the creature are described as "gory". The prefix yocto- also exists, but is either unrelated or ironic as it is very small; a yoctogram is 10-24 kg, and a proton, for example, weighs ~1.6 yoctograms at rest.
