The Hero Roller is a roller in Splatoon and Splatoon 2 that is exclusively used in single player modes.

Appearance

In Splatoon, the Hero Roller looks like the Splat Roller but with a more futuristic design with a black and lime green color scheme shared with all the Hero Weapons, and many blue lights that leave a small trail as Agent 3 moves. In Splatoon 2, the Hero Roller has a new and sleeker design with yellow supports instead of black, looking similar to the Carbon Roller.

The Hero Roller functions similarly to the Splat Roller, being able to fling a decent amount of ink and spread ink by rolling it on the ground. It cannot be upgraded with Power Eggs like the Hero Shot, and unlike the Hero Shot, it only comes with Splat Bombs. It is exclusively used by the player during the Inkling Boy amiibo challenges, and completing them all unlocks the Hero Roller Replica for purchase at Ammo Knights.
