A Balloon Fish.

Balloon Fish are a gameplay mechanic in Octo Valley, Octo Canyon, and the Octo Expansion.


The Balloon Fish resemble pufferfish due to their round appearance, small fins, and ability to expand. However, they are simply white balloons modeled after pufferfish, with 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.
