The Hohojiro Mask comes with Sub Power Up as the primary ability. As a 1-star item, the Hohojiro Mask comes with two additional slots for secondary abilities. The star level may be increased with Super Sea Snails for 1 (first), 1 (second), 5 (third), 10 (fourth), or 20 (fifth) Super Sea Snails per star. Increasing the star level to 2 stars will add another secondary ability slot for a total of three slots. Increasing the star level beyond 2 stars will increase the gear experience gained by a cumulative 3.333…% up to 10% additional experience at 5-star level. Since it is made by the amiibo gear brand, it has equal chances to roll any secondary ability.

Translation notes

  1. "Omote" can mean both mask and "front side." This alludes to the Japanese cultural aspect of one's public face (表 omote) and private face (裏 ura). The "omote" is about etiquette and manners, whereas the "ura" is about the behavior only appropriate around one's own family, or even the darker side of a person.
