The Hero Roller Replica is a Roller Main Weapon in Splatoon.


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.

— In-Game Description (EU/OC)

The Hero Roller Replica is as its name implies, 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 Sub/Special loadout of Suction Bombs and Killer Wails.


Version history


  • Players can only splat their opponents in one hit with the center of the roller.
  • Opponents cannot be splatted in one hit when the player is out of ink.
  • Amount of damage given when the roller is repeatedly swung balanced.


  • Special gauge loss: 50% → as low as 40%


To unlock the Hero Roller Replica, the player must play the last set of missions from the Inkling Boy amiibo:

The blueprints to the Hero Roller Replica are received after completing the fifth boss challenge.

Recommended Abilities

Roller type weapons consume lots of ink, as they have very wide trails. The Ink Saver Main will reduce the amount of ink the roller uses.

The Ninja Squid ability might also be another thing that can help splat foes, as not being able to be seen while you swim in your ink in squid form allows roller users to sneak up on foes and squish them with their roller.

Rollers should be able to wait in ambush for opposing players. Using Cold Blooded cuts Echolocators and Point Sensors' times.
