|First Appearance||Splatoon (2015)|
|Shielded Twintacle Octotrooper|
Shielded Octotroopers are a variant of Octotroopers that have a shield attached to the device it rides. This shield will defend the Octarian from ink. Inklings need to distract the Octarian with a bomb in order to attack them from behind.
The only difference between a regular Octotrooper and a Shielded Octotrooper is that the latter has a shield attached to the front of its vehicle while the former does not.
Said shield is a black and plate-like, and includes a rectangular glass peephole so the Octarian on the vehicle can see in front of itself.
