The Hockey Mask comes with S2 Ability Ink Recovery Up.png Ink Recovery Up as a main ability. As a 3-star item, the Hockey Mask has three additional slots for secondary abilities. Since it is made by the SquidForce SquidForce brand, it has a higher chance of rolling S2 Ability Ink Resistance Up.png Ink Resistance Up and a lower chance of rolling S2 Ability Ink Saver (Main).png Ink Saver (Main) to fill its secondary ability slots.



  • The mask and its relation to Halloween are a reference to the "Friday the 13th" franchise, as its main villain, Jason Voorhees, wears an identical mask.
  • The Japanese name for this gear intentionally does not use the kanji 仮面 for the word "mask", since it is a homophone for a certain type of mackerel.
