Hero Roller Replica
The Hero Roller Replica is a replica of the Hero Roller used in the Inkling Boy amiibo challenges. Just like the Hero Shot Replica is to the Splattershot, the Hero Roller is identical to the Splat Roller, with the same stats and loadout of Suction Bombs and Killer Wail.
To unlock the Hero Roller Replica, the player must play the last set of missions from the Inkling Boy amiibo:
- 22. Splat-Switch Revolution
- 24. Pinwheel Power Plant
- 26. Octoling Onslaught
- Boss 5: Enter the Octobot King!
The blueprints to the Hero Roller Replica are received after completing the fifth boss challenge.
|“||A sweet replica created by Sheldon from his grandfather's blueprints. It looks funky fresh, to be sure, but apparently it’s just a regular Splat Roller with a fancy paint job.||”|

The Hero Roller Replica returns to Splatoon 2 with an updated model that is visually identical to the Level 1 Hero Roller. However it is once again a re-skinned Splat Roller, which therefore now comes with Curling Bombs and Splashdown. To unlock the Hero Roller Replica, the player must now complete every level with the Hero Roller in Octo Canyon.
The Hero Roller Replica is a specially designed roller with the same stats as the standard Splat Roller. This weapon came about after I made a breakthrough in my research and managed to create the ultimate weapon! Sadly, it never made it to mass production because the guys at the factory couldn't wrap their heads around my advanced schematics... So instead they just slapped some shiny parts on a standard roller and called it the Hero Roller Replica. Give it a shot sometime!
- Callie's main weapon is shown to be the Hero Roller or its replica, likely from her time in the role of Agent 1. This is shown in her artwork for the Go all out! vs. Focus on healing Splatfest.
- The Hero Roller's design in Splatoon 2 closely resembles the design of the Carbon Roller despite the weapon sharing identical stats to the Splat Roller.
