Ink refillers, also called ink bottles, are collectibles in Octo Expansion, Return of the Mammalians, and Side Order.


Ink refillers are small containers of ink resembling small water bottles for pet birds and rodents. When touched, they refill the player's ink tank. They can either be sitting solitarily out in the open or continuously spawning from small pads, similar to canned specials. They often appear in levels where the player has limited ink, levels focused primarily on a specific sub weapon, or levels with timed challenges.

In Octo Expansion, ink refillers are embossed with a Kamabo Corporation logo. In Return of the Mammalians, they are instead embossed with a Cuttlegear logo. In Side Order, they feature the Memverse's infinity symbol.

In Side Order, ink refillers are placed in fixed positions throughout certain floors, but are also occasionally dropped by Jelletons. The Pearl Drone can generate them if the proper color chips are equipped in the current Palette. However, they only refill half the ink tank in Side Order.
