Inkling Girl with Kensa Charger and Kensa Splatterscope.
- Oddly, the NA name for this weapon omits specifying the weapon as a Splat Charger, referring to the weapon as the "Kensa Charger" as opposed to the "Kensa Splat Charger".
- This may be because the Kensa Charger is the only charger-type weapon (apart from its counterpart the Kensa Splatterscope) in the Kensa Collection, as opposed to the dualie class also having the Kensa Glooga Dualies and the roller class also having the Kensa Dynamo Roller. The specification of this weapon being a "Splat Charger" isn't necessary, unlike the other Kensa/Splat weapons.
