Hero Charger Replica
The Hero Charger is not available during regular Octo Valley missions but can be used at the amiibo stand in Inkopolis Plaza with an Inkling Girl amiibo. When using this amiibo, the player is given the chance to go through some of the previous Octo Valley levels that they have beaten and replay them using a charger rather than a shooter.
When the blueprints are obtained and given to Sheldon in Ammo Knights, he will give the player the Hero Charger Replica as he cannot copy the technology shown on the blueprints. It, therefore, loses the specially-designed Agent 3 Splat Bombs.
The Hero Charger looks slightly similar to the real-life M16 Rifle, an iconic weapon and the standard service rifle for many armies in the world; however, the M16 is an assault rifle rather than a sniper rifle.
To unlock the Hero Charger Replica, the player must play the last set of missions from the Inkling Girl amiibo:
- 23. Spongy Observatory
- 25. Far-Flung Flooders
- 27. Unavoidable Flying Object
- Boss 5: Enter the Octobot King!
The blueprints to the Hero Charger Replica are received after completing the fifth boss challenge.

The Hero Charger Replica returns to Splatoon 2 with an updated model that is visually identical to the Level 1 Hero Charger. However it is once again a re-skinned Splat Charger, which therefore now comes with Splat Bombs and Sting Ray, along with the newfound ability to store a charge for one second. To unlock the Hero Charger Replica, the player must now complete every level with the Hero Charger in Octo Canyon.
- Unlike Damage Up in Splatoon, while Main Power Up increases damage, it does not allow shots below full charge to reach 100.0 damage.

- Marie's main weapon is shown to be the Hero Charger or its replica, likely from her time in the role of Agent 2. This is shown in her artwork for the Go all out! vs. Focus on healing Splatfest.
