Appearance

The Basic Tee is a yellow short-sleeved shirt. On the chest is a large symbol with some Inkling text below it, both in a dark yellow. Just below this symbol is a round purple pin featuring a green and yellow cartoon squid with eyes similar to those of jellyfish. On the hem is a small triangular tag in white with a gray symbol, likely an alternate SquidForce SquidForce logo. On the back of the shirt is a larger version of the cartoon squid in dark yellow, with the logo from the tag just below it and some white Inkling text below that. The eyes of the creature and the Inkling text at the bottom both glow in the dark. An Octoling version of the Basic Tee appears as the Fresh Octo Tee.

Abilities

The Basic Tee comes with S2 Ability Quick Respawn.png Quick Respawn as a main ability when purchased from shop or ordered from Murch. When purchased from SplatNet 2, it can have any other Ability normally available to Clothing. As a 1-star item, the Basic Tee has one additional slot for secondary abilities. Since it is made by the SquidForce SquidForce brand, it has a higher chance of rolling S2 Ability Ink Resistance Up.png Ink Resistance Up and a lower chance of rolling S2 Ability Ink Saver (Main).png Ink Saver (Main) to fill its secondary ability slot.

Trivia

  • The design on the Splatoon version of the Basic Tee loosely resembles the Japanese word for "squid" (いか) in hiragana, while the Splatoon 2 version resembles the same word (イカ) written in katakana. Both versions have letters that resemble the English word "squid" on the back.
  • The squid pin worn with both versions of the Basic Tee is a reference to the Japanese Wakaba mark, a symbol representing beginners. This is likely a reference to the fact that the Basic Tee is the first piece of clothing received in the game.
  • Based on its SplatNet 2 price, it can be deduced that the normal price of the Basic Tee would be Cash 300 if it was not part of the starting gear.
  • As of update 2.0, the Basic Tee and the rest of the starting gear are the only pieces of gear that cannot have their original abilities restored if purchased through SplatNet 2. The only way to restore their original abilities is by ordering from another player.
