Sunken Scrolls are items found in the single-player modes of the Splatoon series.

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 the Octo Canyon overworld. 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.

SRL historian here. Behold these Story Mode morsels of history and mystery - the Sunken Scrolls! Work with your Smallfry to find the hidden ones. Then study to your heart's content! One moment... I'm being told "no one likes homework." This isn't homework! And... I like homework.

  • 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.
