Forge is a gear brand within the Splatoon series. In Splatoon, Forge gear has a 5× higher chance to roll Special Duration Up while in Splatoon 2 and Splatoon 3, it has a 5× higher chance to roll Special Power Up and a 0.5× chance to roll Ink Saver (Sub). Forge also designed the Forge Splattershot Pro.

Though Forge's gear is quite varied in its appearance and style, their theme seems to be practical headgear. All of their headgear serves or is able to serve a particular function, such as a football helmet for protecting one's head, goggles for going swimming, and headphones for listening to music.

According to SplatoonJP, Forge produces military-style clothing and professional headphones.[1]

Logo in Splatoon

The Forge logo is a lettermark or letterform. It consists of a black circle, with an italicized F-shape inside, stylised to resemble a Splattershot. The F-shape is split into three parts - the bottom being the stem of the F, it is transparent and extends outside the edge of the circle, and has an attached shape that resembles the trigger guard of Splatoon's Splattershot. The middle and top portions are parallelograms that make up the middle bar and top arm of the F, with the middle being a transparent outline filled black, with an attached shape to resemble the barrel, and the top being solid yellow, representing the ink tank.

In Splatoon, there is bold and italicised black Inkling text below the logo, with the second letter ('o' shape) filled with the same yellow used in the logo. It is seemingly very stylised round script or bold script, mimicking the letters "Forリマ", which is similar to the brand's name in Japanese (フォーリマ Fōrima). This text doesn't appear on the main logo in the subsequent games, though it does still appear on some versions of it, and on some gear.

Quotes

Splatoon

Forge has blazed a path as one of the first fashion gear brands in Inkopolis to blend utilitarian military looks with high fashion! Fans of the brand often hang out with one another in gatherings informally known as a Military School of Fish.

Splatoon 2

Forge is a brand that makes a variety of gear, all of which inspires a shocking degree of loyalty from their fans. They produce everything from authentic military fashion to high-tech headphones. One theory on why their line is so diverse is that their president has a lot of interests, and he designs and develops products that match his eclectic tastes. That particular vision has earned the brand a lot of support from their fans.

Splatoon 3

Another report, fresh from the Squid Research Lab Fashion Desk! (OK, it's my regular desk with a funny hat on it.) We're testing the new Airflow & Hustle Jacket from Forge with built-in ventilation! Perfect for heated battles in the Splatlands and staying cool at all times.
