|"An aquatic beast, the Tentacle only enters your Dungeon if there is water around. He hangs around the water and attacks enemies from there. Tentacles won’t usually be persuaded to move far from their watery homes."|

General Information Edit
Tentacles are attracted to dungeons that have sufficiently large Temples and access to water. They are good fighters, and are very durable due to their high health points and defense; in addition, they are very cheap to train and maintain, making them excellent alternatives to more expensive meat shields such as Dragons. Unfortunately, they require a very large amount of time to regenerate lost health.
Tentacles are fond of water and patrol bodies of water if any are available. When their lair is near water, they make excellent guards for your unfortified areas of liquid. Although they are able to manufacture and research, they do not excel at either.
It should be avoided that tentacles become angry as it is likely that they will then join the enemy.
If possessed the view is slightly misted.
The Dungeon Keeper Goodies Disc contains wave files of Mentor dialogue that were cut from the game, some of which mention a 'Scum Tentacle' creature. This is presumably this creature, or an early version of it.
