I recently got the Krak-On Splat Roller which has the Kracken special.

I'd previously been killed by people while they were using the Kraken ability, but I don't seem to be able to damage enemy players with it.

How do you attack with the Kraken?


While in Kraken form, you can attack other players by jumping (using the X button). If you hit an enemy while you're in the air, you will damage them.

  • Related note: a kraken will always spin attack while in the air, even if you didn't jump, so you can kill enemies by falling on them. – Brian Sep 28 '15 at 16:12
  • You don't simply "damage them", jumping into an enemy will splat him instantly. – pinckerman Mar 29 '16 at 22:56
