— In-game description, translated.(JP)[a]
This ability is found as the main ability only on clothing, so other abilities found only on clothing are mutually exclusive with it; in other words, players cannot have them together. These abilities are Ability Doubler, Haunt, Ninja Squid, and Thermal Ink. In addition, since wearing the Splatfest Tee with Ability Doubler is mandatory during a Splatfest, these abilities cannot be used for the duration of those events.
Respawn Punisher is the main ability of:
|For||Respawn time||Special Gauge lost|
|A non-user splatted by a non-user||8.5 seconds||50%|
|A non-user splatted by a Respawn Punisher user||9.25 seconds||65%|
|A Respawn Punisher user splatted by a non-user||9.67 seconds||72.5%|
|A Respawn Punisher user splatted by another Respawn Punisher user||10.4 seconds||87.5%|
- Respawn Punisher has a stronger effect on the user than on the enemy, as shown in the table above. The penalties will also stack if the user is splatted by another user of the ability.
- Respawn Punisher reduced the effect of the opponent's Quick Respawn by 85% and Special Saver by 30%.
- Respawn Punisher has no effect on assists. The user must land the final blow that splats the enemy for there to be an effect.
- 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.
- Players with Haunt can cause similar effects by splatting the opponent that triggered the ability. However, the player with Haunt must be the one who gets the splat or there will be no penalty.
