Alterna Space Center

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki

Alterna Space Center is the finale of the single-player campaign of Splatoon 3, Return of the Mammalians.

Splatoon 3

Alterna Space Center is located at the center of Alterna. Initially, the area is covered by a large amount of sharp fuzz and is inaccessible. After Agent 3 gathers the three treasures, they and the other members of New Squidbeak Splatoon assemble these treasures into a lawn mower-like tool, which the Captain then uses to destroy the fuzz, allowing the team to go to Alterna Space Center. However, the Captain hurts themselves in the process and the tool breaks. The members of Deep Cut then appear to make another attempt in taking the treasure back, but are told that the treasure is no longer needed and they can have it. They then help the team find Cuttlefish, who is now properly located at the top of the launchpad.

The rocket, The Spirit Lifter, is filled with Fuzzy Ooze, and Mr. Grizz plans to use it to spread the Fuzzy Ooze all over Earth. The Great Zapfish can also be seen sealed in the steerage to power the rocket.

After arriving:
Cap! Captain! Are you OK?!
Plenty! But don't worry about that. If this pile of junk makes you happy, you can have it!
Boss Marie?! Ahaha! Looks like you have your own employees now. Have fun with that!
Reaching the entrance:
You're our only hope, Agent 3!
Reaching the hangar:
You and Smallfry did great, but... it must be a relief to have your gear back!
Reaching the lift:
Oh. And how in the world are we supposed to get over there?!
Reaching The Spirit Lifter:
Well... we climbed, we un-climbed... and now we're here. I hope Gramps really is at the launchpad!
Hey, so this has been bugging me... Why were you after the treasure, anyway? Just 'cause... treasure?

After arriving:
You simply can't go on? You sprained a tentacle? Well, we won't let you down. We'll go on without you! C'mon, Agent 3. Let's-
Oh, that thing? Yeah, we're done with it. It's all yours.
Oh... I'm going to have to approve their time cards, aren't I?
Reaching the entrance:
I can't stop thinking about poor Gramps... all alone up there somewhere. We've got to focus and move on!
Oh, sure. NOW they want to help.
Reaching the hangar:
Look for another way in, Agent 3. There's got to be one around here...
Reaching the lift:
OK, I know we've had a few false Gramps signals. But I'm pretty sure he's on that launchpad.
I don't know for sure, but if we can get into this building on the right, maybe we'll find an answer.
Reaching The Spirit Lifter:
I'm still not sure how to get there...
Very brave to volunteer Agent 3 like that...
Whoa. You're actually heroes. And here we thought... Well, I don't want to say what we thought.

After arriving:
Giving up is for the weak. Do we look weak?
You're done with it? Done... with treasure? What's wrong with you?
This is a trick, right?
Seriously. Such a boss move. Actually... why don't YOU be our boss?
Reaching the entrance:
I mean... we're standing right here. We're helping too!
Reaching the hangar:
Don't you think we should get a move on?
Reaching The Spirit Lifter:
Good eye, Frye. The pipe is definitely big enough for Agent 3 to fit through. What could go wrong?
That's right. We plan to sell the treasure and divide the profits among the needy. We'll keep a... shallow cut.

RotM Icon Frye.png Frye's Quotes

After arriving:
WAIT ONE HOT MINUTE! That's right... it's US! You didn't think we were going to just GIVE UP, did you? Tell me you didn't!
So! Last chance. If you don't want to tangle with Deep Cut, put down the treasure and walk away.
You expect us to believe you're just going to give us the treasure? After, well, everything? Wait... why am I fighting this? WOW, thanks! I feel kind of... not good... about each of us fighting you to the death. Our bad. And you're just GIVING us this!
Reaching the entrance:
I can't believe they turned out to be so nice. And so FAMILIAR. Where have I seen them...
Reaching The Spirit Lifter:
Hey! I can see a pipe that's connected to the rocket!
We're doing it for Splatsville! Not everyone there is as fresh as we are. Some of them are really hurting!

After arriving:
Ay! (What they said!)
Ay! (New boss! Can I get a raise?)
Reaching the entrance:
Ay! (Yeah, don't forget about us. Let's go!)
Reaching The Spirit Lifter:
Ay! (Aw, thanks, Boss!)

RotM Icon Cuttlefish.png Cuttlefish's Quotes

Reaching the hangar:
Alright, Grizz, or whatever your name is... What's the deal with these ropes?
Help YOU? Somebody help ME! Anyway, if you really DO want help, I sure can't do much like this. Untie me, and we'll yak about it.
Oh, I get it. You've gone fishin'. Completely out to sea. You're just trawling us, right?
Reaching the lift:
Hey. Buddy. You talkin' to me? 'Cause I got NO idea what you're saying.
Reaching the rocket:
What are you blatherin'on about? HEY! D-don't come any closer...
Leave my brain outta this! HEY! What's that for? Get away from me! AAAH! Ugh... Whaaa...

RotM Icon Mr Grizz.png Mr. Grizz's Quotes

Reaching the hangar:
Ropes? Those are Corporate Engagement Facilitators. And they are helping me save the world. I simply require a representative of Earth. Like you. Don't you see? You're going to help me.
Never fear. You will be free soon. And together we shall bristle forth... into a fuzzy and profitable new era!
Reaching the lift:
The world as it exists now is out of balance. One cannot run a world - or a business - in this manner. Mammals and marine creatures have traded places. And not for the better. As CEO, I must be the one to restore balance to nature. For now... I will let the Fuzzy Ooze spread. And watch the Golden Eggs pile up... My employees have been extremely diligent.
Reaching the rocket:
There are three components to my business plan... The vessel. The spirit. And the wisdom of ages. Someone is taking notes, yes?
Your brain...ensconced though it may be in your hideous form...contains the beautiful essence I need!
To be a visionary in business—and in life—one must be prepared to make tough decisions. I must leverage the suffering of my employees into a brighter, fuzzier future for all!

  • This sequence shares a few similarities with the Escape sequence of Octo Expansion:
    • They are both a series of continuous missions ending with the final boss of the mode.
    • The player starts both sections without their main weapon and has to retrieve it later.
    • Both sequences have a section (Diaphragm Phase in Octo Expansion and The Spirit Lifter: First Class in Splatoon 3) that involves unlimited use of a particular special weapon (Inkjet and Zipcaster, respectively) in order to power something with at least one energy core.
    • Both sequences feature two songs by the game's main idol group that play throughout every section except the first one and the last two.
    • Both sequences feature at least one song by the game's main idol group which contains a riff on "level completed" jingle (Fly Octo Fly, in reference to TEST PASSED! and Thang Obtained in the Octo Expansion).
    • Both sequences can be replayed after being completed by approaching an object and interacting with it to relive memories.
  • The missions in this sequence are the only ones to feature Fuzzy Ooze, which otherwise only appears outside of missions in The Crater and Alterna.
  • During the in-between stages of this sequence, seven audio clips of English-speaking voices that seem to be recordings of rocket launch announcements can play at random.
    • These clips are audible throughout Alterna's Site areas, but are heard clearest in the Space Center. This suggests they are being broadcast over the Center's speaker system.
