Compared to the basic Splat Roller, the Carbon Roller is the lighter and more mobile roller. It has an incredibly fast flick that still splats opponents in one hit. However, its attack power and range is weaker, and it is unable to squish Inklings in one hit.
Each flick consumes 3.5% of the ink tank capacity, allowing players to fling 28 times before needing to refill.

- Out of all main and sub weapons, the Carbon Roller has the fastest one-hit-splat time, going through the motion of a single flick in 11 frames (less than a quarter a second).
- The Carbon roller is the only non-Brush Roller weapon that does not crush / splat with a single hit while rolling over the opponent.
- The Carbon Roller is designed after a bicycle's bottle cage, with the water bottle used as the weapon's reservoir.
Carbon refers to Carbon fiber, a very light material from which the Carbon Roller is apparently made. Many bicycle frames are made of carbon fiber, which alludes to the possibility that the Carbon Roller was made from salvaged bicycle parts.
