The Traditional Headband is a thick white headband in the style of hachimaki. It is made of rope or twisted cloth and is tied in a knot, the placement of which differs slightly based on the wearer's gender. If worn by a male, the knot is on the right side of the forehead, but if worn by a female, it is just behind the right ear.
The Traditional Headband comes with Comeback as a main ability, which, being exclusive to the main slot of headgear, prevents the wearer from also having Opening Gambit, Last-Ditch Effort, or Tenacity. As a 2-star item, it also has two slots for secondary abilities. Since the Famitsu brand does not change the likelihood of any secondary abilities, they all have an equal chance.
- The Traditional Headband, Traditional Apron, and Traditional Sandals make up a unified design that was submitted to, and won, the "Ika Fashion Contest" held by Japanese magazine Famitsu. As the winner, it was made into gear for Splatoon.
- According to the original outfit design, only male Inklings were to wear the headband, with females wearing a paper hat.
