Respawn Punisher is an ability in Splatoon 2. The ability is exclusive to clothing, and cannot be rolled as a sub ability.

Respawn Punisher increases the respawn time and the amount of Special Gauge that is lost to both the user and opponents defeated by a Respawn Punisher user.

You and your defeated enemy's special gauge penalty and respawn time increase.

Mutual exclusivity

This ability is found as the main ability only on clothing, so other abilities found only on shoes are mutually exclusive with it; in other words players cannot have them together. These abilities are Ability Doubler Ability Doubler, Haunt Haunt, Ninja Squid Ninja Squid, and Thermal Ink Thermal Ink. In addition, since wearing the S2 Gear Clothing Splatfest Tee.png Splatfest Tee is mandatory during a Splatfest, these abilities cannot be used for the duration of those events.


Respawn Punisher is the main ability of:

A player splatted without the ability 8.4 seconds 50%
An enemy splatted by a user of the ability 9.2 seconds 65%
A user of the ability splatted by an enemy 9.6 seconds 72.5%
A user of the ability splatted by another user 9.6 seconds 72.5%

  • If both the user and an enemy are wearing Respawn Punisher, the effects will be the same as if just the user is wearing the ability.

  • Respawn Punisher does not affect respawn time if the user drowns or falls out of bounds, but still has its normal Special Gauge effects.
  • The strength of Respawn Punisher does not decline with repeated deaths or splats.
