Moby Knit

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki

The Moby Knit is a piece of clothing in Splatoon 3.

It is a 2-star item produced by Krak-On and comes with the primary ability Ink Recovery Up. It must first be unlocked through leveling up the Chill Season 2022 Catalog to level 6, then it can be purchased from Man-o'-Wardrobe for Cash 9,600. It can only be ordered from another player after being unlocked.


The Moby Knit is a multi-colored knitted sweater inspired by the 80s hippie culture, most notably the psychedelic design. The knit itself, along with its cuffs, is black, covered with metallic stripes of various thickness and design, placed in an asymmetric manner. The most characteristic element is a pair of whales, with the left being metallic brown and the right pure white, visible in the middle, blowing water from their blowholes. Thin black seams precede the collar and hem.

The Moby Knit comes with Ink Recovery Up as the primary ability when purchased from a shop or ordered from Murch. When purchased from SplatNet 3, it comes with any other primary ability normally available to Clothing (with the exception of Ability Doubler). As a 2-star item, the Moby Knit comes with three additional slots for secondary abilities. The star level may be increased with Super Sea Snails for 1 (first), 1 (second), 5 (third), 10 (fourth), or 20 (fifth) Super Sea Snails per star, or by purchasing additional copies of it from Man-o'-Wardrobe for 10,000 (first), 30,000 (second), 50,000 (third), 100,000 (fourth), or 200,000 (fifth) Cash per star. Increasing the star level beyond 2 stars will increase the gear experience gained by a cumulative 3.333…% up to 10% additional experience at 5-star level. Since it is made by the Krak-On gear brand, it has a higher chance of rolling Swim Speed Up and a lower chance of rolling Sub Resistance Up to fill its secondary ability slots.




The English name of the shirt is a reference to the novel Moby Dick, which centers around a sea captain hunting down a white sperm whale that had attacked him in the past.
