Headband Catfish Village was the home of the Catfish until it was destroyed by a sunken ship. Hatchan visited this place during his solo adventures where he saved the catfish villagers from starvation by making them takoyaki. The island was also visited by Octopako, who cared nothing for the villagers. The catfish villagers decided to reward him by making him a ship that he could use to sell takoyaki. The ship was given the name Takoyaki 8.
