A Pinwheel.
Those spinny things make me nauseous... *urp*

Pinwheels are a mechanic in Octo Valley, found only in the level Pinwheel Power Plant.


Pinwheels are typically long, narrow platforms attached to a central cylindrical axis that constantly rotate in a set direction. Pinwheels can contain any number of platforms, and usually feature net barriers that rotate on the axis as well. In order to bypass these net barriers, Agent 3 must assume squid form.

Pinwheels act like Spreaders but do not place any ink.

  • Pinwheels first appear in the Octo Valley mission Pinwheel Power Plant, where they play a prominent role. Agent 3 encounters multiple varieties of Pinwheels here, many of which include net barriers, one platform, and Octarian enemies.
