The Teddy Band is a brown headband with teddy bear ears sticking out on top of the band. The ears are the same color as the headband, with the inner part of the ears being light brown in coloration.


The Teddy Band comes with Comeback as the primary ability when purchased from a shop or ordered from Murch, which, being exclusive to the main slot of Headgear, prevents the wearer from also having Last-Ditch Effort, Opening Gambit, or Tenacity. When purchased from SplatNet 3, it comes with any other primary ability normally available to Headgear. As a 2-star item, the Teddy Band comes with three 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. 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 Cuttlegear gear brand, it has equal chances to roll any secondary ability.



  • The Teddy Band's internal ID is MSN109, meaning it shares its ID with an unused and removed item that once existed in the files of Splatoon 2. This makes it the only item in Splatoon 3 to reuse an ID that had previously been used for a separate item, albeit a removed and unobtainable one.[1]
