Takoroka \m/ Crab

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki

The Takoroka \m/ Crab is a piece of clothing in Splatoon 3.

It is a 1-star item produced by Takoroka and comes with the primary ability Ink Recovery Up. It must first be unlocked through leveling up the Drizzle Season 2023 Catalog to level 6, then it can be purchased from Man-o'-Wardrobe for Cash 2,320. It can only be ordered from another player after being unlocked.


The Takoroka \m/ Crab is an orange T-shirt with an illustration of a crab below a logo for "Skateboard". The same logo is featured on the back of the shirt, underneath a smaller Takoroka logo. When worn by a player using the feminine style, the shirt takes on a slightly different texture with visible threads, making it appear very slightly darker in color. The shirt can be changed into an oversized version using the 'Adjust Gear' feature; this adjusted version uses a near-identical appearance to the feminine version regardless of the player's style choice.

The Takoroka \m/ Crab comes with Ink Recovery Up as the primary ability when purchased from a shop or ordered from Murch. When purchased from SplatNet 3, it comes with any other primary ability normally available to Clothing (with the exception of Ability Doubler). As a 1-star item, the Takoroka \m/ Crab comes with two additional slots for secondary abilities. The star level may be increased with Super Sea Snails for 1 (first), 1 (second), 5 (third), 10 (fourth), or 20 (fifth) Super Sea Snails per star, or by purchasing additional copies of it from Man-o'-Wardrobe for 10,000 (first), 30,000 (second), 50,000 (third), 100,000 (fourth), or 200,000 (fifth) Cash per star. Increasing the star level to 2 stars will add another secondary ability slot for a total of three slots. Increasing the star level beyond 2 stars will increase the gear experience gained by a cumulative 3.333…% up to 10% additional experience at 5-star level. Since it is made by the Takoroka gear brand, it has a higher chance of rolling Special Charge Up and a lower chance of rolling Special Power Up to fill its secondary ability slot.



"\m/" is a text-based representation of the sign of the horns, a popular gesture in heavy metal subculture.
