Propellers appear in Hero Mode as a stage mechanic in several stages. They are introduced in the Hero Mode level Stage 6: Propeller-Lift Playground.


Propellers appear similar to fan blades attached to a central axis and stand. They can be found on movable platforms throughout Octo Valley.


When sprayed with ink, Propellers begin to spin and the platforms they are stationed on start to move in a designated direction. Propellers can only be operated by a constant stream of ink, as a halt in this stream causes them to move backwards.
