Inkfurlers are large plastic wraps that furl outwards when shot at by the player, creating a platform or climbable wall automatically covered in their ink. They re-furl after a brief moment, which can lead the player to plummet to their doom. They can be reset if shot at the end of the furl. In single-player, if an enemy Octarian is in the way of an unfurling Inkfurler, they will be quickly splatted, however, this works in both ways; if they are shot by a Sprinkler or opponent attacks, they quickly re-furl, dealing damage and knockback to the player. Inkfurlers are prominently featured in Sector 4 of Octo Canyon and are required to progress in other levels.
In multiplayer modes, Inkfurlers are significantly sturdier, taking more hits to unfurl than normal (especially when re-furling) and unfurl much slower. Unlike in other modes, Inkfurlers are always coated in the ink of the player of unfurled it, even when on the opponent's side of the stage, and it can be inked over by an opponent. They appear as gray on the outside instead of their more colorful appearances elsewhere.
