Each scroll has information about the world of the game and its history, such as the Great Turf War. There is one Sunken Scroll in each main stage. In Splatoon, there are 27 normal scrolls, five from boss missions, and three from amiibo challenges. In Splatoon 2, there are 27 normal scrolls and five obtained in Octo Canyon. Sunken Scrolls are usually hidden out of the player's way, except for Boss Scrolls, which are directly in front of the Zapfish after the battle ends. Scrolls are automatically collected in a book, which can be viewed from the overworld of Octo Valley or Octo Canyon.
Boss Scrolls award the player with blueprints for new multiplayer weapons, which are unlocked the next time the player goes to Ammo Knights. They must still be bought with cash and all level requirements apply.
List of Sunken Scrolls
For a list of scrolls, including images, descriptions, and locations, see:
- If a player gets the Sunken Scroll but gets splatted before they reach the next checkpoint, they lose it and have to pick it up again.
- In amiibo challenges, the crates that would contain the Sunken Scroll in Octo Valley have ten Power Eggs in them instead.
