O.R.C.A. describing the stage

Relic Restoration is the 10th level in Splatoon 3's story mode, Return of the Mammalians.


This level takes place on a single large island. A large moai statue replica stands in the center of the island, which the player must completely cover in ink. Four octagonal propeller lifts are spaced around the edges of the island.


Near What Caused the Big Bang? YOU!, there is a climbable wall that is covered in Fuzzy Ooze. Go behind it and climb up to the higher point in this site. Go a few steps back at that altitude, and you'll find the level.


Checkpoint 1

The player enters the level and has to ride a Ride Rail to get to the island. They then have to fully cover the moai with ink using the Explosher. Once more than 20% of the statue has been inked, O.R.C.A. will provide the player with two layers of floating platforms surrounding the statue, allowing them to more easily paint areas not accessible from the ground. The propeller lifts can be used to navigate these platforms. Once the statue is sufficiently inked, a launchpad will appear on the ground that leads the player to the goal. Once the player has super jumped to the area with the goal, the floating platforms will lower, allowing for a better view of the completed statue. Climbing to the top of the statue will reward the player with a Power Egg pack.

I guess you're just supposed to ink it up? I don't ask questions.
I'd say you're about halfway there. Keep it up!

What's THAT supposed to mean?!

And I thought Callie had a big head!
You aren't afraid of heights, are you? Agent 3?
Who taught Agent 3 to ink this well? Surely it wasn't Agent 1...
Actually...yeah! Looks good.

RotM Icon ORCA.png O.R.C.A.'s Quotes

You have inked in excess of 20 percent of all surface area. Perhaps some platforms will help with the rest.



This stage mirrors Turf War (Octo Expansion), the final boss of Octo Expansion, in that you need to completely cover a statue in ink.
