Appearance

The Retro Framers are a pair of black glasses with jagged rims, giving the illusion that they were pixelated. An Enperry logo text can be seen on the left temple. Both temples change color to match the user's ink. this may also be a refrence to the classic internet meme “thug life” where the induvidual is seen wearing pixelated glasses.

Abilities

The Retro Framers come with Opening Gambit as the primary ability when purchased from shop or ordered from Murch, which, being exclusive to the main slot of Headgear, prevents the wearer from also having Comeback, Last-Ditch Effort, or Tenacity. As a 2-star item, the Retro Framers come with three additional slots for secondary abilities. The star level may be increased with a Super Sea Snail, or by purchasing additional copies of them from Naut Couture for 10,000 (first), 30,000 (second), 50,000 (third), 100,000 (fourth), or 200,000 (fifth) Cash per star. Increasing the star level to 1 or 2 stars will also add another secondary ability slot to the Retro Framers. Increasing the star level beyond 2 stars will increase the gear experience gained by the Retro Framers by a cumulative 3.333...% up to 10% additional experience at five-star level. Since they are made by the Enperry brand, they have a higher chance of rolling Sub Power Up and a lower chance of rolling Ink Resistance Up to fill their secondary ability slots.
