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.
The propellers found in Ancho-V Games almost function the same as in Octo Valley, the main differences being that they can only be activated from the front and the back, and they also shoot ink out from the top in the player's color.
In Splatoon 2
Propellers make a return in Octo Canyon mode in Splatoon 2. Functionality is the same except this time platforms are linked to a dotted line showing where the platform goes.
- 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!
