Hero Charger from Octo Valley
- Main article: Hero Charger
The Hero Charger is not available during regular Octo Valley but can be used at the amiibo stand in Inkopolis Plaza with an Inkling Girl amiibo. When using this Amiibo, the player is given the chance to go through some of the previous Octo Valley levels that they have beaten and replay them using a Charger rather than a Shooter.
When the blueprints are obtained and given to Sheldon in Ammo Knights, he will give the player the Replica as he cannot copy the technology shown on the blueprints. It therefore loses the special designed Agent 3 Splat Bombs. Even though it looks like the Hero Charger, it has the same stats and weapon set of the Splat Charger.
The Hero Charger looks slightly similar to the real life M16 Rifle, an iconic weapon and the standar service rifle for many armies in the world; however, the M16 is an assault rifle rather than a sniper rifle.

Though not for the Replica, the following notes for the Splat Charger apply:
|“||In terms of stats, the Splat Charger sits right in the middle of the chargers, and thus has the most versatility and the possibility to adjust for play style. Splat Bombs are powerful tools on their own from mid-range, so Ink Saver (Sub) and Bomb Range Up can be particularly useful abilities when using this loadout.||”|

The blueprints to the Hero Charger Replica are received after completing the fifth boss challenge.
- ▼ Special gauge loss: 50% → up to 75%
- ▼ Range when not fully charged reduced by about 20%.
- ▲ Range when fully charged increased by about 4%.
Fully charged shots consume lots ink, and charger users can often run out when they least expect it. The Ink Recovery Up ability hastens the refill rate of ink. This ability enables players to have constant and more long term map presence and have both main and sub weapons frequently at hand. Tentatek gear has a 5x higher chance of rolling this ability.
Swim Speed Up makes mobility easier. Swim Speed Up will increase mobility in squid form to aid in quick escapes from enemies who get too close.
The Cold Blooded ability reduces the duration of tracking by Point Sensors, Haunt, and Echolocators by 75%. Cold Blooded allows players to be unpredictable in positioning, win sniper duels and prevent quick splats by enemy snipers. As snipers wait in ink until an enemy approaches, Cold Blooded is useful for removing Echolocators that show where a hiding/camping spot is.
- The Hero Charger looks slightly similar to the real-life M16 rifle, an iconic weapon and the standard for many armies around the world. However, the M16 is an assault rifle, not a sniper rifle.
