— Annie upon entering Cooler Heads
Annie (Japanese: アネモ Anemo) is a character in Splatoon. She is a sea anemone who owns the headgear shop, Cooler Heads, along with Moe in Inkopolis. She later opened the SplatNet Gear Shop in Splatoon 2.
Annie has pink hair tinted with pastel-green at the tips of her tentacles and also houses Moe in it. She has cyan eyes with reddish-pink pupils, and purple eyelids with eyelashes. Annie possesses a shiny black star-shaped accessory in her hair, and also has black glasses. She has pink-purple headphones and a charteuse jacket emblazoned with purple and bright blue squids. Annie also has a dark teal dress, orange tights with black squids on it, and black biker boots.
Personality and traits
Annie is extremely reserved and constantly ruminating, but she has many secret fans. Moe the clown fish lives atop her head. He talks a big game, but he staunchly refuses to leave the safety of Annie's head. 
Annie's version of DJ Lee Fish's song Lookin' Fresh has louder treble, i.e. vocals, and minimal percussion, giving it a weaker sound in that respect. This is a reflection of her shy, detached personality, as well as the fact that she sells gear for the top part of the buyer's body, hence the emphasis on the treble.
It is hinted at in the nineteenth Sunken Scroll that Moe is the one manipulating Annie, reading, "Is the big fluffy one providing shelter for the little fishy one, or is the little fishy one manipulating the big fluffy one? We may never know..."

- Annie's name is a pun of the word "anemone," as it sounds like the "ane" in anemone. Moe completes the anemone of the name.
- It is possible/likely that Annie has an interest in Sheldon. In Chapter 4 of the Sqiud sisters stories, Callie blurts out in excitement,"Do you think Annie and Sheldon...?!"Though Marie says,"No way," while smiling,"Not a chance."But it is still likely because it states that Annie helped decorates weapons at Ammo Knights, and she felt the part-time job suited her perfectly while looking for a new gig.
