Octodad: Dadliest Catch Trophy Guide
Welcome to PlayStation LifeStyle’s trophy guide for Octodad: Dadliest Catch! This game about a totally normal husband and father comes with 20 trophies to earn. They are all very easy to earn and can be collected in one play-through. If you do happen to miss any, they can be earned by restarting a checkpoint or via chapter select. Chapter select is under “Free Play” in the main menu. Only two trophies are story related and the rest are all tied to completing very random tasks through out the game.

This is earned during the chapter “Wedding Bells”. Pick up the ring from the box to right of the altar. Stand to the right of Scarlet and throw the ring at her finger. Push the L3 forward and press R1 to throw the ring, this will undoubtedly take a few tries. If you throw the ring and miss, it will respawn back in the box after a few seconds. There is a video guide below:
The Best Man - Bronze
- Get married with the best man on the altar.
The best man is the fish on the right side of the room with the bride. Pick up the fish and set him him on the altar. When he’s up on the altar put the ring on Scarlet’s finger. If you take too long the fish will flop off of the altar and you will have to set him back up on it.

- Orange no-thumbs are the new green thumbs.
This can be earned while in the backyard during “Home, Sweet Home”.

The other 2 can only be reached by following the path into the garden. This is where it gets tricky, use the path up at the top of the garden.
