As in the Turf War, victory in the Tricolor Turf War is determined by the difference in Ink Points. However, the defending team must have the most Ink Points to win, while the attacking team wins if one of the two teams has more Ink Points than the defending team.

In the center of the area on the defender's side, there is an Ultra Signal. When someone on the attacker's side touches the Ultra Signal, the signal is "Attempted" and can be secured after more time has elapsed. After a certain amount of time has passed, the signal will automatically ink the stage, giving you the advantage in battle.

Up To Two Ultra Signals Appear

Up to two Ultra Signals can appear in one Tricolor Turf War. Even if an attempt fails, the time until the Ultra Signal is secured becomes shorter each time an attempt is made, so do not give up and keep attempting.

The attacker's Clout varies greatly depending on whether or not they have stopped the defender from winning. However, Clout also varies with place, the number of Ultra Signals secured, and the number of Attempts, so that Clout can be earned even when a victory is not won.
