A Propeller.
Agent 3 using a Propeller lift to ascend.

Propellers are introduced in the Octo Valley level 6, Propeller-Lift Playground. Propeller-lifts similar to the ones used in Octo Valley can be found in the online stage Ancho-V Games.


Propellers appear similar to fan blades attached to a central axis and stand. They can be found on movable platforms throughout Octo Valley.


When sprayed with ink, Propellers begin to spin and the platforms they are stationed on start to move in a designated direction. The sides of the lift lights up in the player's color ink. Propellers can only be operated by a constant stream of ink, as a halt in this stream causes them to slowly move backwards.


  • Players can get splatted by enemy ink coming out from the top of propellers at Ancho-V Games, and doing so in multiplayer gives out a message of Splatted by ink from a propeller![1]
