The Princess Cannon is a special weapon in Splatoon 2. It is not part of any main weapon's set, and is instead only available in the final Shifty Station layout, MC.Princess Diaries, where it appears in the middle of the stage when there is one minute left until the battle ends.[1] It is similar in appearance and function to the Killer Wail from Splatoon, although the beam is much larger and it takes a little longer to charge up.

Octo Expansion

The Princess Cannon is used against Commander Tartar in the ending cut-scene of the Octo Expansion.

After the player successfully completes the game's final boss battle, Turf War, the NILS Statue still manages to fire its giant ink laser at Inkopolis out of the cannon in its mouth. Pearl uses the Princess Cannon to counter the ink beam. As she fires the Princess Cannon, the gauge from the score screen of multiplayer Turf Wars appears, showing the percentages of ink covered like normal. Pearl manages to score 888.8%, and the meter cracks, similarly to how it does in Ranked Battles.

MC.Princess Diaries

MC.Princess Diaries is the final Shifty Station layout, debuting in the final day of the Chaos vs. Order Splatfest. When there is one minute left of the battle, Pearl slowly descends from Off the Hook's helicopter and lands in in the center of the stage, then waits for a player to get close to her. When a player gets close to Pearl, she gives them her Princess Cannon and allows them to aim it, then helps them to fire it. The Princess Cannon can only be used once per battle, since Pearl leaves immediately after it is used.

  3. While the honorific term "senpai" is mostly used by Marina when referring to Pearl (translated as the nickname "Pearlie" in English versions), here it seems to be used as a nickname, as Pearl herself says it when referring to herself. That, or Marina designed the Princess Cannon.
