|Appears in||Rayman Origins, Rayman Legends|
|Species||Nightmare of Polokus|
Tentacle claws are a type of enemy that appears in Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends. These long, spindly, dark-blue arms emerge from the corrupt bubbles formed by Polokus's nightmares. At the end of each tentacle is a claw. They have a different appearance in Rayman Legends.
In Rayman Origins, while the heroes can swim through their arms without any damage, the claws at the end are lethal, and will begin to slowly move then ambush them if they get too close to them. They're dark-blue in colour, and as their colour scheme and name suggest, they might be related to Darktoons. They are invincible, unlike their sea counterparts, the tentacle eels. However, tentacle claws are afraid of the light and usually hide in dark swamps or abyssal areas. With the help of some underwater fireflies, an anglerfish, or some luminous fish, Rayman can protect himself from the attack of the tentacle claws in the Sea of Serendipity and the Angsty Abyss.
In the underwater areas at the Sea of Serendipity, tentacle claws will grab the players if they don't have light around them.
In Rayman Legends, their appearance has drastically changed. They are now brownish green, sporting an eye on the palms of their hands, the arms are connected to a large body with a gaping mouth, and have spikes, meaning that the player cannot swim through them without getting hit. Sometimes Murfy will need to poke the eye of the tentacle claw to allow the player to advance. Another version of the tentacle claw appears as a long body with a large eye with a red pupil covered with spikes, and has a mouth filled with sharp teeth. Tentacles can sport between 1-4 arms, and are usually found in water areas. They only appear in Teensies In Trouble and the first level of Toad Story, but also appear in the Back to Origins levels. They will slightly follow a player if they get too close, and if close enough, their hand and eye will open wide, and they will lunge at the player. If they successfully catch the player, then they will drag the player to their mouth and swallow them, effectively killing them. The other version only appears in Once upon a Time and Ropes Course, where Murfy is required to poke its eye in order for the player to advance.
