Aside from the poisonous tentacles and the ripping off of jelly arms (not sure about this one, I have read about the chambered nautilus using jellies as defense but by maneuvering the whole animal, not removing the tentacles), I think most of the thoughts are close for one species or another.

I liked this one.

octopuses differ in size so greatly that the father will never grow to be be larger than an acorn, meanwhile the mother will mature to be the size of a human being (150 lbs or so).
I thought they all laid eggs
When an octopus mother gives birth, she blasts out nearly 200,000 babies

There is a deep see octo that quailfies for the first I believe. The argonaut also has a huge size discrepancy but I believe there is a very large female and very small male in the deep sea group as well.

The second could appear that way for some of the ones that carry their eggs rather than attach them to a substrate
