Squid Baron is a Warp Squid, one of the Three Barons of Sequin Land and is the second boss of Shantae: Risky's Revenge. He dwells in his sealed fortress Squid Baron's Labyrinth and holds the first Magic Seal. He is also the father of an enormous number of baby warp squids, of whom he is very protective.
Squid Baron is greedy, rude and dishonest, though is ultimately not a malicious figure and only fights to protect his family and property. Despite that, he still does not hesitate in using his children as weapons during his fight against Shantae.
The Squid Baron first appears in the game at the entrance of his labyrinth, waiting for a tasty meal. Once Shantae gets there with the meal she got from the Chef Girl, he lets her in and showcases a rather friendly attitude, until the moment she mentions being here to get his Magic Seal. He then flees and once cornered in his room, becomes overtly hostile, not wanting Shantae to take the Seal. The player, as Shantae, then proceeds to defeat him in a Boss Battle.
In his boss battle the Squid Baron has the ability to teleport himself just like regular squids can. He will try to land on Shantae her head by doing this. He can also charge for Shantae one time but if he eats a tasty meal he will charge 7 times and then stop. As mentioned in his Personality, he can also summon his children to the battle and they won't do anything beside walking but can hurt Shantae if she touches them. His children can reward hearts so Shantae can heal herself. When the Squid Baron is damaged 120 times, he is defeated he explodes in what Shantae later describes as a 'Stage Clear Sequence' and Shantae is rewarded with the first Magic Seal.
The Squid Baron reappears near the end of the game at the lighthouse, shortly after Sky and Bolo revealed to Shantae that Mimic has disappeared. He comes to ask Shantae's help to retrieve three of his babies, the Golden Warp Squid Babies. Shantae is distrusful at first, based on their last encounter (cynically breaking the fourth wall when she mentions she saw him disappear in a boss battle explosion) but warms up to him when he reveals that Mimic was abducted by the Zombie Trio of Rottytops, Abner Cadaver and Poe and that one of the Golden Babies owns an artifact which could help her in her journey. After Shantae has retrieved the Babies, the Squid Baron reveals that the artifact is the Mermaid Bubble which allows Shantae to attack underwater. In the ending scene, he is seen alongside the heroes at the lighthouse, with his babies running around the screen, but does not have any line.
