The Cap of Legend, known in Splatoon as the Legendary Cap, is headgear in the Splatoon series.

In Splatoon, it is a 3-star item produced by Cuttlegear and comes with the primary ability Damage Up. It is only available as a reward from Judd for reaching Level 50. It cannot be ordered from another player.

In Splatoon 2, it is a 3-star item produced by Grizzco and comes with a random primary ability generated when it is received. It is only available as a reward from Salmon Run as the monthly gear or in a Pink Capsule. It cannot be ordered from another player.

In Splatoon 3, it is a 2-star item produced by Grizzco and comes with the ability Last-Ditch Effort.

Appearance

The Cap of Legend is modeled after Cap'n Cuttlefish's signature peaked cap, with the main difference being that it changes color to match that of the wearer's Ink. It is made of somewhat worn dark fabric with a lighter patch sewn onto the top and a dark-colored visor, which, along with the band, is lined with a dull gold. The insignia is the Cuttlegear logo in the same dull gold on a dark blue circular shape.

In Splatoon only, when worn by Inkling boys, the cap has a torn hole on the top for the tentacle topknot, matching that of the Cap'n Cuttlefish's.

Translation notes

  1. Unlike in the first game, the word "legend" in the item's name is not the word in Japanese, rather it is a phonetic transcription of the English word.
