Appearance

The Black Tee is a black short-sleeved shirt. On the front are some large Inkling letters printed in white, and at the bottom is a tiny purple tag with the SquidForce logo in white. On the lower back is more white Inkling text, but much smaller than that on the front.

It is similar to the White Tee and Basic Tee, albeit black.

Trivia

  • The Black Tee is the cheapest purchasable piece of gear with Special Duration Up in Splatoon.
  • The logo on this and the White Tee loosely resembles the Japanese word for "squid" (いか ika) in hiragana, like the Splatoon version of the Basic Tee. Unlike the Basic Tee, however, the logos of the Black and White Tees were not changed for Splatoon 2.
  • Inkling Girl's green variant wears the Black Tee in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
