Commander Tunic

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki

The Commander Tunic is a piece of clothing in Splatoon 3.

In Splatoon 3, it is a 0-, 1-, or 2-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 Next Wave, first as the monthly gear for May 2023, and later in a Pink Capsule. It cannot be ordered through Murch.


The Commander Tunic is a long-sleeved teal tunic with a high collar. It has two yellow stripes running down the front and back, one going over each shoulder. There is a yellow and red badge on the left breast. Around the wearer's waist is a black belt with a silver squid-shaped buckle.

The Commander Tunic comes with a random primary ability that can also appear as secondary abilities, which prevents the wearer from having Ability Doubler, Haunt, Ninja Squid, Respawn Punisher, or Thermal Ink as they are exclusive to Clothing and cannot appear as secondary abilities. This primary ability is assigned randomly when the item is received. The Commander Tunic may appear as a 0-star item with one additional slot for secondary abilities, a 1-star item with two additional slots for secondary abilities, or a 2-star item with three additional slots for secondary abilities. The star level may be increased with Super Sea Snails for 1 (first), 1 (second), 5 (third), 10 (fourth), or 20 (fifth) Super Sea Snails per star. Increasing the star level beyond 2 stars will increase the gear experience gained by a cumulative 3.333…% up to 10% additional experience at 5-star level. Since it is made by the Grizzco gear brand, it has equal chances to roll any secondary ability.



  • The Commander Tunic appears to be inspired by the uniform worn by Imperial officers from the Star Wars franchise, although the color has been changed, and the buckle is squid-shaped instead of rectangular. The Commander Tunic may also take inspiration from the Starfleet uniforms used in the Star Trek films II through VI.
