Hank is a male octopus and the tertartagonist of Disney's Finding Dory.

Official Bio

"Hank is an octopus. Actually, he's a 'septopus': he lost a tentacle - along with his sense of humor - somewhere along the way. But Hank is just as competent as his eight-armed peers. An accomplished escape artist with camouflaging capabilities to boot, Hank is the first to greet Dory when she finds herself in the Marine Life Institute. But make no mistake: he’s not looking for a friend. Hank is after one thing — a ticket on a transport truck to a cozy Cleveland facility where he’ll be able to enjoy a peaceful life of solitude."

Physical Appearance

Hank is an octopus with skin that (when he is not in camouflage) is a bright orange-red color. He has a large, bulbous head and seven long arms covered in cream-colored suction cups. His eyes are blue.


  • Hank's eyes are incorrect. In real life, octopuses have rectangle-shaped eyes similar to rams.
  • It is unknown how one of his tentacles was disposed of, but he insists in the film that he has bad memories about the ocean, where he never wanted to return at first. It can be assumed that a crab may have teased him, and snapped his tentacle right off.
  • In the credits, Hank is found piloting a small boat and "driving" a sunken car.
