Spinal Phase is the seventh stage in the Octo Expansion's finale.

Gameplay

Agent 8 must defeat a partially sanitized Agent 3 in a boss battle.

Agent 3 is armed with their S Weapon Main Hero Shot Replica.png Hero Shot, S2 Weapon Sub Splat Bomb.png Splat Bombs, and has a large arsenal of special weapons at their disposal. They will always enter the arena by a Super Jump and activate a S2 Weapon Special Splashdown.png Splashdown upon landing, with the exception of the S2 Weapon Special Baller.png Baller phase. Additionally, Agent 3 can dodge roll at any time as if they were landing with S2 Ability Drop Roller.png Drop Roller. Agent 3 will use the Hero Shot and Splat Bombs in all phases of the fight but uses a single type of special exclusively in each phase. It should also be noted that, like the player, Agent 3 is able to heal themselves over time, accelerated if they swim through their own ink.

If the player gets repeatedly splatted, they have the option to skip this phase, with each splat contributing to 20% Skip Charge, where the following dialogue will be displayed:

"After a fiercely fought yet bittersweet battle with the renowned Agent 3, Agent 8 emerged victorious..."

Phase 1

Agent 3 will land into the stage with a S2 Weapon Special Splashdown.png Splashdown. After that, Agent 3 will fight normally. Agent 3 does have access to S2 Weapon Special Curling-Bomb Launcher.png Curling Bomb Launcher during this phase whenever their special is charged.

Phase 2

After taking sufficient damage, Agent 3 will Super Jump back to the spawn point on the UFO flying over the arena. Agent 3 will Super Jump into the stage and immediately activate the S2 Weapon Special Baller.png Baller, trying to corner the player before setting it off. The Baller can be destroyed with sustained fire, however, both layers of the Baller have much higher health than usual. The rest of the battle continues normally, though Agent 3 can activate another S2 Weapon Special Baller.png Baller once their special is once again charged.

Phase 3

Super Jumping back onto the UFO, Agent 3 will remain on top of it, firing off the S2 Weapon Special Sting Ray.png Sting Ray in between volleys of Hero Shot fire and Splat Bombs. The UFO is difficult to reach with the S2 Weapon Main Octo Shot Replica.png Octo Shot's fire, though it can be reached while standing on one of the platforms and it is low enough to throw a Splat Bomb on top of it.

Phase 4

Agent 3 in the final phase will start by using the Splashdown three times in a row. There is a period of rest between each Splashdown where Agent 3 is vulnerable, if enough damage is dealt to Agent 3, they will dodge roll out and continue into their next Splashdown. Agent 3 can perform their successive Splashdowns again once their special is charged.
