The Balloon Fish are white balloons modeled after pufferfish. They have a round appearance, small fins, and ability to expand, much like real pufferfish. They have a small splatter of the player's current ink color on the top and a small, similarly colored Ammo Knights logo on the bottom. Two tiny white dots in the ink above the balloon's tie give the impression of eyes and a mouth.
Shooting a Balloon Fish with any amount of ink causes it to burst, instantly covering the area around it and splatting any enemies caught in the blast. It quickly regenerates for repeated use.
