Appearance

The Special-Forces Beret is a military-style beret pushed to the right. It changes color to match that of the wearer's ink, with the exception of the band, the strings in the back, and the flash. The band is black and slightly shiny; the strings, which are quite short, are also black; and the flash, a circular emblem with a fish skeleton and a simplified Splat Charger, is a metallic gray. On the back is the Inkling text from the Forge logo in black.

Very dark ink colors, such as the dark blue used in Ranked Battles in Splatoon, can cause the Special-Forces Beret to become a dark gray.

When displayed in a Locker in Splatoon 3, this gear is placed on a black mannequin head.
