Checkpoint 1

This test is based on pushing an 8-ball to the goal. It begins with a downward ramp, followed by two upward ramps. Along the way, Sanitized Octotroopers are encountered.

Checkpoint 2

The second checkpoint.

Area 2 starts with some beams which carry the 8-ball to the next part where more Octotroopers are stationed. There is a right turn and a propeller lift which takes Agent 8 upwards where they can continue. If they keep going up, though, they will be able to reach a beam with a Power Egg pack.

Checkpoint 3

Area 3 begins with a platform tilted upward. The 8-ball has to be pushed up a slope without it falling off. Then there is another similar platform, but the 8-ball should fall off in order to get it to Area 4.

Checkpoint 4

Area 4 begins with a seesaw, where the 8-ball must be pushed across quickly. On the other side, there is an 8-ball switch and a vault, the former activating an elevator. Take the elevator up to a small platforming section, which consists of a few beams and some Octotroopers. At the top is a key.

Final checkpoint

The fifth and final checkpoint.

Area 5 starts right after the key and is followed by a platform taking the player back to the vault which is opened with the key. The vault contains a Balloon Fish right behind the 8-ball. The Balloon Fish can explode, making the 8-ball move extremely quickly, but it will have to be timed well due to a seesaw that can push an 8-ball into the abyss. Right after the seesaw is the 8-ball goal.

Tips

  • Enemy ink can push the 8-ball. It may be useful to splat the enemy first and then go and bring the 8-ball.

Trivia

  • This station has Bubble Tape floating in the background. This particular gum was very popular in the 1990s due to its unique packaging.
    • The text on the packaging is not in English but is instead in Inkling.
    • F02 Slow Ride Station has Bubble Tape floating around in the background as well.
  • Wassup 8-Ball Station is the only mission in the Octo Expansion to use the Splash-o-matic.

Etymology

"Wassup" is the corruption of "What's up?", a phrase that was popularized by a December 1999 advertising campaign for Bud Light beer.

The subtitle, "Signs point to yes...", is one of the possible results on a Magic 8-Ball.

Translation notes

  1. "仮設・トノ・ツメオル" is a pun on "カセットの爪折る" kasetto no tsume oru, meaning "breaking a tab of compact cassette".
  2. Comes from "Wippe" (seesaw) and "-hude", a suffix found in certain German city and district names.
  3. A reference to the Mexican TV sitcom El Chavo del Ocho. The catchphrase "Tenía que ser el chavo del ocho," (It had to be the lad from [apartment] eight) is said by an adult in response to some hijinks the titular character is involved in.
  4. This phrase does not have an exact translation in English, but is used in relation to a tragic event occurring.
