Kuramochi Minoru (倉持 稔) , widely referred to by his fans as Mr. Octopus, is a challenger of SASUKE. His main trademark is bringing octopi onto the starting line in an assortment of ways. Although he has founded a name for himself, competing in SASUKE 18 times, he has not been known as much of a winner; he has repeatedly failed the first obstacle of the first stage, making it to the third obstacle at best.

In SASUKE 26, Kuramochi gave his most impressive performance. He reached all the way to the Rolling Escargot where he failed near the end of the obstacle. Mr. Octopus over-passed many notable competitors as Kanno Hitoshi, Takahashi Kenji, Miyazaki Daisuke and Yamamoto Shingo. He, Harashima Masami, and Aoki Yasuo are usually given consecutive start positions. He also performed well in VIKING 2 as he made it all the way to the Parley but failed. He returned for VIKING 3 and beat the Parley, but failed the Cannonball. He works and owns the Edokko Pub.
