Matchmaster Station is a mission in the Octo Expansion.


Players must carve a sculpture on the right to match a copy of the octopus-shaped sculpture on the left. Unlike F07C12 Matchmaker Station where players must compare the two sculptures constantly, all the crates that need to be destroyed in this mission are item crates, while all the ones which should not be destroyed are normal crates. Despite this, the sculpture is very large and various Grapplinks are located throughout the structure to get around.

Various item crates contain ink refills. One crate, however, contains a key and using this key on the vault at the center of the map gives access to a single checkpoint which saves any progress made to the sculpture. If a player were to fail the mission, they would be reset to that point rather than having to restart from scratch.

After successfully matching the sculptures, the top of the left sculpture will raise, revealing the goal.

Please create a shape out of the crates that is identical to the example on the left.
If you destroy an incorrect crate by accident, you will fail.
Take care not to lose your focus.
You broke an incorrect crate - test failed.

Looks like you're about halfway done...
Sounds like the perfect time for some ink-robics! One-and-two! One-and-two!
This is as satisfying as spring cleaning!

Marina's Quotes

Destroy crates until you match the example on the left, OK?
Go easy on the trigger when you're trying to break just a few crates at a time.
— When the player has the Squeezer equipped.
Be careful not to hit crates with the explosion if they've already been inked!
— When the player has the Rapid Blaster Pro equipped.
All right - take a deep breath, and try again when you're ready.
OK - less than 20 left now!
Oh, yeah... there was that vault back in the middle, right?
Oh, hey! How about using that key?
Ooh - a checkpoint! Use it wisely!
Ah, Ok. It looks like you'll be fine if you only destroy the orange crates.
There's the goal! Climb up to the top of the example statue!

Pearl's Quotes

This thing is HUGE!
Making sure your ink hits its mark should limit the explosion!
— When the player has the Rapid Blaster Pro equipped.
Check it - if you fire a fully charged shot, it'll bust through multiple crates.
— When the player has the Splat Charger equipped.
Only halfway?! UUUGGGH.
Oh, man... I'm losing my ability to focus.
You know, up here you could try destroying the crates from above...
Almost done! Keep it up, Eight!
Look at that sucker spin!
Key get! Whoop whoop!
Pweh! I thought you were gonna have to start all over if you failed.
Wow - that's using your head!

  • Both the title and subtitle in the Spanish (NOA) translation are a reference to Pinky and The Brain, characters from the animated TV show Animaniacs.
  • There are slingshots floating around in the background of this station.

Translation notes

  1. Comes from "een boom van een vent", a Dutch expression meaning "a man that is very large", and "uitdaging" (challenge).
  2. Comes from "te hard van stapel lopen", a Dutch expression meaning "to do things immediately without a plan." It is a pun on "stapel" also meaning "stack".
