Moving platforms are platforms able to move without the use of a propeller. These platforms can be made of many materials, such as typical metal, non-inkable blocks, or temporary stage-setup blocks (used in many ranked modes). These platforms are usually constructed by the Octarians. Marina also sometimes includes them in the Shifty Stations she creates for Splatfests. Similar unnatural platforms are invisible walls/floors, floating pieces of land, or floating propeller platforms.


Moving platforms are used to assist the player in getting to one area from another. The platforms can move in a variety of directions, as well as in different ways. If the platform does not tilt, the player on the moving platform's movement is relative to the platform. However, when jumping, the player's movement is relative to the stationary ground, which may lead to the player falling off the moving platform if they are near the edge or do not anticipate the platform's movement. When swimming on a wall that is part a moving platform, the player's directional input is relative to the direction they are as if it were a normal wall. If the platform tilts and creates a steep slope, a player in humanoid form will fall down. If the player is swimming, they will stay on the platform as long as they are not upside down, which will cause them to fall.
