Roller Art.png

Rollers are one of the five Main Weapon classifications in Splatoon. The Roller easily spreads Ink over a wide area around the user, making it an ideal weapon for Inking on the go. For most Rollers, running into enemies will instantly splat them, changing the splat cam message from "splatted" to "squished". For attacking enemies out of melee range, Rollers also have a mid-range Ink-flinging attack.

With the Inkling Boy amiibo, the player can use a Roller for Octo Valley missions.

List of Rollers



Brushes are an unofficial subclass of Rollers. They are characteristically much faster and more mobile than conventional rollers, but do not do nearly as much in the way of contact damage, making squishing enemies virtually impossible. However, instead of flinging Ink, Brushes quickly swipe from side to side, flicking many smaller globs. This rapid-fire flick is their primary means of spreading Ink and attacking enemies, making them ideal for fast, close-combat action.

  • The Inkbrush Series
    • S Weapon Main Inkbrush.png Inkbrush – An extremely fast Brush. When pushing it along the ground, it has a very narrow coverage and is quite weak, but it greatly increases the user's speed. It also has an incredibly fast flick, but the range is quite short. It comes with S Weapon Sub Sprinkler.png Sprinklers and the S Weapon Special Inkstrike.png Inkstrike.
  • The Octobrush Series
    • S Weapon Main Octobrush.png Octobrush – Something of a compromise compared to the Inkbrush. It lacks the extremely high running and flicking speed, but has better range, Ink coverage, and damage output. It comes in a set with S Weapon Sub Squid Beakon.png Squid Beakons and the S Weapon Special Kraken.png Kraken.

Splatoon 2

  • The Inkbrush series
  • The Octobrush series
    • S2 Weapon Main Octobrush.png Octobrush – This Brush has greater range and damage compared to the standard Inkbrush. It comes with the S2 Weapon Sub Autobomb.png Autobomb sub and the S2 Weapon Special Inkjet.png Inkjet special.
      • S2 Weapon Main Herobrush Replica.png Herobrush Replica – A reskin of the Octobrush, based on the appearance of the Herobrush. It is unlocked by completing all Hero Mode stages with the Herobrush.
Glowing Ink flung from a Roller.



  • Ink flung from any Roller will glow before it lands. This is often difficult to see, however, due to bright lighting in some areas and the small amount of time for which the Ink is in the air.
  • There are no Rollers with Point Sensor or Disruptor as their Sub Weapon.
  • In the corner of the Shooting Range are some parts for a Roller, most likely a Splat Roller.
  • Because Rollers are big, parts of them will sometimes go through walls as it is bring pushed.
