In Splatoon 2, a different company logo is used for vending machines. The old Express vending machines logo no longer appears on vending machines, instead appearing on the special weapons, the Inkjet and Tenta Missiles.

Octo Expansion

A vending machine can be found in the back of A00 Central Station. The look of the vending machine is very different compared to other vending machines found elsewhere in Inkopolis due to the disconnect between the areas. It is turned off and unusable for the majority of the campaign, but upon returning to the Deepsea Metro after the completion of Turf War, C.Q. Cumber informs Agent 8 that they can now use it, with it now being turned on with the lights glowing. Talking to C.Q. Cumber again will inform Agent 8 that they can travel to any qualifying stations marked on the map and talk to him on the platform to receive a mem medal. Agent 8 can collect ten mem medals, and they are used to redeem items from the vending machine.

There are ten mem medals to collect. After spending all of the mem medals Agent 8 has on them, the vending machine reverts to spending 15,000 CQ Points for an item.

Splatoon 3: Side Order

In Splatoon 3: Side Order, Vending-Machine Corners appear as optional floors within the Spire of Order. A vending machine corner takes the place of a challenge floor, and the player can spend Membux there to purchase replacement lives, color chips, sub and special weapons, and Prlz. Vending Machine corners appear on random floors but will be guaranteed to appear on 5F if the player passed 5F on their previous run, and Marina can hack the Spire to make them appear on 15F and 25F as well. They also always appear on 11F and 21F. The vending machine resembles the ones in Inkopolis Plaza, and the rug below it resembles Spyke's rug in Splatoon.
