The Octoling Shades are headgear in Splatoon 2.
They are a 2-star item produced by Cuttlegear and come with the primary ability Last-Ditch Effort. They can be obtained from the Octo Expansion. They cannot be ordered through Murch.
The Octoling Shades are a pair of shield style sunglasses that resemble Hypnoshades that Octolings wear. They have red rims and a glowing red dot on one eye.
The Octoling Shades come with Last-Ditch Effort as a main ability, which, being exclusive to the main slot of Headgear, prevents the wearer from also having Comeback, Opening Gambit, or Tenacity. As a 2-star item, the Octoling Shades have two additional slots for secondary abilities. Since they are made by the Cuttlegear brand, they have equal chances to roll any secondary ability.
- The glowing red dot visible is likely a reference to the 1984 film The Terminator, in which the titular T-800 Model 101 Terminator eventually has his human facade damaged and his glowing red robotic eye becomes visible, even when he disguises it with a pair of sunglasses that themselves are similar in appearance.
