The Splat Roller is a large paint roller. It covers turf while the player pushes it and can be used as a melee weapon. After pressing , it flings ink at a short range. If the player continues to hold down , the Splat Roller touches the ground and is able to leave a wide trail of Ink identical to the player's movements for as long as the player holds . Enemies making direct contact with the roller while it is being pushed are splatted instantly. At close range, well-aimed fling attacks will splat opponents with one hit. Each flick of the Splat Roller consumes 9% of the ink-tank capacity, allowing players to fling 11 times before needing to refill the tank.

The Splat Roller returns for Splatoon 2 with a new visual design and a new vertical swing mechanic. When flicked while jumping, ink travels in a vertical line rather than a horizontal splash, and it travels much farther than a grounded flick. It comes with Curling Bombs and the Splashdown.
