In the RPG

The RPG Icon 16x36.png This section contains information from the Warcraft RPG which is considered non-canon.

Squid

These free-swimming mollusks are fairly aggressive. They are more feared than sharks in some locales. A squid can emit a cloud of jet-black ink ten feet high by ten feet wide by ten feet long once per minute. The cloud provides total concealment, which the squid normally uses to escape a losing fight. All vision within the cloud is obscured. A squid can jet backward at great speed in a straight line.[5]

Giant Squid

Northrend and the Eye of the Maelstrom are home to giant squid.[6] These voracious creatures can have bodies more than 20 feet long and attack almost anything they meet. An opponent can attack a giant squid’s tentacles with a sunder attempt as if they were weapons. If a giant squid is currently grappling a target with the tentacle that is being attacked, it usually uses another limb to make its attack of opportunity against the opponent making the sunder attempt. Severing one of a giant squid’s tentacles deals damage to the creature. A giant squid usually withdraws from combat if it loses five tentacles. The creature can regrow severed limbs within several days. They in turn are hunted by cachalot whales.[7]
