"Dayuuum Mayor Squid is (meat)baaaa-llin'" - Bob The Necromancer

It appears to be inspired by the fictional creature Cthulhu which was created by H. P. Lovecraft. Both have tentacles and oceanic origins but its skill names may be related to the Flying Spaghetti Monster. It also looks like a metroid from the Metroid game series. The Flying Squid itself floats in the air and shoots lasers at its enemies from its mouth. It has multiple eyes, fangs sticking out from bottom and its tentacles wiggle around.
