In Splatoon 2, it is a 1-star item produced by Zekko and comes with the primary ability Quick Respawn. It can be purchased from Headspace for Cash 700 or from SplatNet 2 Gear Shop for Cash 1,750.

In Splatoon 3, it is a 0-star item produced by Zekko and comes with the primary ability Quick Respawn. It can be purchased from Naut Couture for Cash 700 or from SplatNet 3 Shop for Cash 1,750.

Appearance

The Backward Cap is a flat-brimmed cap worn backwards. It has a dark gray brim, a tiny version of the Zekko logo on the front (the back, if worn normally), and Zekko's name in large, black and white Inkling letters on the other side. The main part of the hat changes color to match that of the wearer's ink. In Splatoon 3, the cap can be rotated to instead face forwards using the 'Adjust Gear' feature.

Despite looking strikingly similar to the CoroCoro Cap from the front, the Backward Cap is worn differently: it is almost completely straight, while the CoroCoro Cap is angled, with the Zekko logo over the wearer's left eye. The lettering seems to be the word/emblem Zekko rather than CoroCoro.
