The Copy Machine resembles a grey robot of some sort. It appears to stand on one extremely wide leg, two arms and a head facing downwards with a white light in the centre.
The Copy Machine may be of Octarian design, considering the shades resembling the Octoling Shades from Splatoon 2. Additionally, there are "ears" on each side of the robot, which are similar in shape to Octoling ears.
Approaching near the Copy Machine opens a dialogue box reading "Turn Copy Machine ON" or "Turn Copy Machine OFF" depending on if it is activated. When activated, the light turns red and a Splattershot appears in its hands, and it stands in an Inkling's idle pose, though it still does not move. When the player holds , the Copy Machine fires, and when the player presses , it throws a Splat Bomb, no matter what sub weapon the player is equipped with. The player still has normal health and can be splatted by the Copy Machine. If this happens, the camera focuses on where the player was splatted for roughly five seconds, before respawning them at the same place they were splatted.

- While the player has a limited ink supply, the Copy Machine does not, therefore it will throw Splat Bombs endlessly if the player presses the rapidly.
