The Fresh Octo Tee is a piece of clothing in Splatoon 2.
It is a 1-star item produced by Cuttlegear and comes with the primary ability Ink Saver (Sub). It can be obtained from the Octo Expansion by completing it, where the player's Octoling automatically wears it with the White Headband and Cream Basics. It cannot be ordered from another player. When a Splatfest ends, the shirt is automatically worn instead of the Basic Tee if the player is an Octoling.


The Fresh Octo Tee resembles the Basic Tee, being a short-sleeved yellow T-shirt with a different logo and a turquoise pin with a cartoon fuschia and burgundy octopus on it (likely a variation of the Jr. Mark). The tag on the bottom has the Cuttlegear logo and on the back has the same cartoon octopus with Cuttlegear logo on the bottom.

The Fresh Octo Tee comes with Ink Saver (Sub) as the primary ability. As a 1-star item, the Fresh Octo Tee comes with one additional slot for secondary abilities, which may be increased to a maximum of three slots with a Super Sea Snail for each slot. Since it is made by the Cuttlegear gear brand, it has equal chances to roll any secondary ability.



  • Like the Basic Tee, it features a design in the front that resembles the Japanese word for "octopus" (タコ) written in katakana. There are also letters resembling the English word "octopus" written on the back of the tee.
  • This item is the first Cuttlegear gear with a 1-star rarity.
  • The Fresh Octo Tee exists in real life, sold by KOG.
