This article is about the player character of Splatoon 3. For the recurring character who debuted in Splatoon, see Agent 3 (Splatoon).

Agent 3 is the codename given to the player character of Splatoon 3 by Cuttlefish in the Crater. This makes them and Smallfry the newest members of the New Squidbeak Splatoon. They notably share the title with the series' first playable character from Splatoon. This is due to the previous Agent 3 being promoted to Captain, leaving the position of Agent 3 open for new recruits.


Agent 3 can have a variety of appearances, depending on the player's choice of style, skin color, eye color, eyebrows, and hairstyle. They wear a new version of the Hero Suit, of two types; A normal one and a survival one. Although having different appearances, both versions of the suit feature a backpack to store Smallfry. This Agent 3 is also the first playable character in the series that can be either an Octoling or an Inkling.


This Agent 3 is a Splatsville youth who earns a living salvaging scrap with their companion Smallfry. After a chance encounter with a retired Cuttlefish in The Crater, who was investigating the location, they are appointed "Agent 3" and receive the Hero Suit.[1] However, while falling into a pit leading into Alterna, Agent 3 loses most of their Hero Gear and needs to repair it using Upgrade Points and Sardinium. After unlocking certain upgrades, the Hero Gear returns to its original appearance.

Reason: All female style Agent 3 should have the male style equivalent




Based on the eyebrows sticking out of the bangs, Agent 3 is being depicted as a masculine Inkling.
  • Most promotional artwork and screenshots depict Agent 3 as a feminine Inkling with the Megalobraid hairstyle, although some promotional screenshots and the cover artwork for The Art of Splatoon 3 depict them as a feminine and masculine Octoling, respectively. A depiction of masculine Inkling Agent 3 can be found in SplatNet 3. This is more variable than the second game, which had most official artwork pieces and promotional material depict a female Inkling as Agent 4.
