Sheldon's Introduction

The Kensa Splat Charger is a limited edition, custom Splat Charger created in collaboration with Toni Kensa! This charger has the same specs as the original, but it comes with a Sprinkler sub for expanding your turf-claiming capabilities! And the Baller special gives charger users a way to roll their way deep into enemy turf and take the fight to their opponents! Hang back and support from afar, or press the fight on the front lines! Either way, this set's for you!




  • Oddly, the English 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" is not necessary, unlike the other Kensa/Splat weapons.
