Brawl Stars Wiki

"Otis is a street artist who chills in the deep with his starfish pal Cil. Together they throw up graffiti pieces all over Starr Park."

Otis is a Chromatic Brawler who will be unlockable as a Brawl Pass reward at Tier 30 in Season 13: The Deep Sea Brawl, or can be obtained from Brawl Boxes after reaching Tier 30 in the Season 13 Brawl Pass. Otis has moderate health and damage and has immense utility with his Super. He attacks by shooting three blobs of paint with a slight spread. For his Super, Otis throws his starfish friend Cil onto an enemy. Enemies affected by Otis's Super can't attack or use their Super or Gadget. Otis's Gadget, Dormant Star, allows his next Super to stay on the ground until it gets stepped on if it doesn't hit an enemy, and his second gadget causes his next attack to splash no matter it hits or not similar to Barley's attack. His first Star Power, Stencil Glue, increases the duration of his Super. His second Star Power, Ink Refills, increases the number of projectiles of his attacks to 4 instead of 3.

Attack: Inky Art

"Otis squirts a burst of ink drops from his spray gun arm."

Otis fires three blobs of paint in a straight, linear line. The globs of paint are slightly spread out similar to 8-Bit's main attack. This attack takes 0.77 seconds to complete.

Super: Silent Seabed

"Otis flings Cil who grabs onto the first enemy hit and prevents them from attacking for a short while."

Otis throws his starfish, which prevents affected enemies from using any attacks, Supers, or Gadgets for 3 seconds. Enemies hit by Otis' Super will be unable to attack or use their Super or Gadget for the duration of the Super. This Super doesn't affect passive effects like the Speed Gear's speed boost or Bo's Circling Eagle Star Power. Otis' Super works on spawnables like Nita's bear, Penny's cannon, or Jessie's turret, however, it won’t affect passive turrets like 8-Bit's Turret and Pam's turret, meaning that users can take damage from Pam's Mama's Squeeze Star Power despite Otis using his Super. For the whole duration, a red, crossed-out symbol will show above the head of the affected target, signifying that Otis' Super is active, and if it hits an enemy Brawler, the affected Brawler's screen will turn a bit dark. Enemies can't shoot the ball if they are hit by his Super.


Dormant Star

"The next starfish will stay on the ground if an enemy is not hit, laying dormant until an enemy gets close."

When activated, if Otis misses his next Super, the starfish that was thrown will land on the ground and be invisible to enemies similar to Belle's Nest Egg Gadget. Any enemy Brawler who step over the starfish will have the Super effect on them be activated. The starfish will stay on the ground permanently unless an enemy steps on it, or the map is reset similar to when a goal is scored in Brawl Ball or when a round is over in Knockout. Multiple starfish can be on the ground at once, but if an enemy steps on one, all other starfish will be removed. All the other starfishes won't be removed if Otis hits an enemy with his Super normally.

Phat Splatter

"Otis's next attack shoots a giant ink ball that leaves a puddle, dealing 810 damage over time for 3.8 seconds."

When Otis uses this gadget, the next attack that he will use will shoot an ink puddle that works similarly to Barley's attack.

Star Powers

Stencil Glue

"Cil mightly squeezes the enemy with all his might. Preventing them from attacking for 33% longer."

This Star Power increases the duration of Otis' Super by 33%, increasing the total duration for 3 seconds to 4 seconds. This also applies to the starfish placed on the ground from his Dormant Star Gadget.

Ink Refills

"Otis now shoots 33% more ink drops."

With this Star Power equipped, Otis shoots 4 ink drops per attack instead of the regular three.


  • Otis’ Super can help him escape from Tanks and Assassins, if they get too close to him.
  • Otis can use his Dormant Star Gadget to block off choke points like in Hot Zone and Brawl Ball and prevent enemies from using their abilities. This can be utilized in maps like Parallel Plays and Backyard Bowl. One way is to aim a Super at a choke point near you goal so that when an enemy with a ball triggers it, they cannot shoot the ball and their only option is to walk it in, buying your team a bit of time to stop the goal.
  • Otis’ Super can be used against brawlers with the immunity shield because it's preventing them to attack while they have a shield, and if he doesn't use it on the enemy, they can kill him before you can attack the enemy.
  • His Super can prevent enemies from passing the ball in Brawl Ball and Basket Brawl. This can be a useful way to prevent enemies from scoring a goal efficiently.
  • Otis is an insane defender in Heist , He can stop brawlers like El Primo when they get close to the safe by muting them and then killing him. However, Otis is not recommended as an Attacker in Heist because of his low Dps.
