- Visually reduces the cooldown of Tranquil Boots, but does not affect it.
- When using Guardian Greaves's Mend while having Octarine Core, its heal restriction timer is reduced by 10 seconds, too.

Heroes whose default item build includes Octarine Core as a core or a situational item
- If you ever find yourself with a tanky hero with Radiance and don't know what else to build, don't hesitate to get Octarine Core, since it greatly boosts your health.
- Octarine is a fictional color in the comic fantasy book series Discworld, written by the late Terry Pratchett, who died just before Octarine Core was released. The color is described as "resembling a flourescent greenish-yellow purple" and can only be seen by wizards and cats.
- The components of Octarine Core are the same as the components of the pre-6.60 Aghanim's Scepter.
