The Octoling Shades come with S2 Ability Last-Ditch Effort.png Last-Ditch Effort as a main ability, which, being exclusive to the main slot of Headgear, prevents the wearer from also having S2 Ability Comeback.png Comeback, S2 Ability Opening Gambit.png Opening Gambit, or S2 Ability Tenacity.png Tenacity. As a 2-star item, the Octoling Shades have two additional slots for secondary abilities. Since they are made by the Cuttlegear 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.
