Drizzling Capricciosos are Jelleton enemies in Splatoon 3. They fly over inkable surfaces, subsequently covering them in their own ink.

Description

Drizzling Capricciosos are mechanical fish that resemble stargazers, with their bodies encased in black ink. They move upside-down, inking the ground below them with a Sprinkler-like structure in place of their tail fin.

Strategy

  • At Protect the zone! levels, Drizzling Capricciosos will target the closest zone and remain still above it until they're splatted.
    • For this reason, if not taken care of, they can quickly take the zone.
  • If being carried by a Battering Lento, they will compensate for the latter's inability to ink its own path.

Quotes

Habitat: Over inkable floors

I can't stand these things. They'll
spill ink all day if you let them.
Do yourself a favor, and take
them out before the whole floor's
a mucky mess.

If you defeat them early, they
don't pose much of a threat. And
they don't have much health
either. Try to take them down
as soon as you see them!
Pearl

They're a good reminder to look
up every now and then. Keep your
head on a swivel, Eight!
Conclusion
Keep it your turf, not theirs!
