Blackbelly Skatepark is a multiplayer stage in Splatoon and Splatoon 2.

Blackbelly Skatepark is a stage based around a skate park. It includes a curved landscape with multiple raised locations.


Blackbelly Skatepark Overview.

Blackbelly Skatepark features two inversely symmetrical skateparks with large ramps and hills. It also includes more widely open areas. There are numerous ways to attack the center of the map, as well as to attack the bases. In the center, there is a central tower. It is a large, plateaued structure that can only be accessed by climbing vertical paths of Ink. It is an effective but vulnerable place to control the center area of the stage. Small balconies are positioned on its sides. Right alleys are located to the right of each teams' spawns and lead towards the center of the map. They each contain a high platform which can be useful for chargers trying to take over the Central Tower. There are no hazards in Blackbelly Skatepark.

In Splatoon 2, the spawn point area is now not accessible to the enemy team, now being on a fairly large raised platform area.

Ranked Battle Terrain

In Ranked Battle, specifications for the terrain or placement of objects are different between the modes; these changes create new paths or new objects to take cover behind.

Splat Zones

The Splat Zones in Blackbelly Skatepark are relatively small and located in opposite corners from each other in the middle of the map, both touching the Central Tower.

Tower Control

The tower in Blackbelly Skatepark is located at the top of the Central Tower. The goals are located in the Right Alleys, going past the two small walls. When it is ridden, the tower will go to the riding team's left. The tower will then descend downward and proceed to go through the opposing team's Right Alley, all the way to the goal.

In Splatoon 2, checkpoints have been added:

  • The first checkpoint is located on the slightly raised area directly to the left of the tower.
  • The second checkpoint is located between the two roadblocks in the enemy's half pipe.


The Rainmaker in Blackbelly Skatepark is located at the top of the Central Tower. The Goals are located directly to the left just off of spawn. Just past those goals right by the Central Tower there are black un-inkable boxes. There are also small boxes added to the Central Tower so players are able to hit the Rainmaker weapon with out being pushed down from the expanding shield.

Clam Blitz

The basket is located at the right side from spawn infront of the hills. There isn't any bump near it. The layout looks the same as in Turf War.

2017 Release Version (until version 4.2.0)

Blackbelly Skatepark returns from the first game and features many ramps and hills, and the cylindrical tower is still found smack dab in the middle. However, it appears that the two spawn points are further back on elevated platforms. This means added protection from enterprising enemies who may be hanging about. It is much wider and open than in the first game.

December 2018 Updated Version (from version 4.3.0)

On 29 November 2018, an announcement was posted on the official Splatoon Japanese Twitter account stating that from 1 December 2018 until the release of Version 4.3.0 on 5 December 2018, Blackbelly Skatepark will be "closed for renovations", similar to the announcements made for Starfish Mainstage in Version 4.0.0 and The Reef in Version 4.2.0.[2] The announcement includes a blueprint of the stage with the planned changes scribbled on it. Changes include:

  • Areas around the teams' spawn points will be deepened and widened
  • One of the L-shaped platforms on the left side of each team's spawn will be slightly widened

Version history

Version Adjustments
  • Fixed an issue on Blackbelly Skatepark in which players could jump higher than normal near the start point and go over certain obstacles.
  • Fixed an issue on Blackbelly Skatepark in which if a certain wall was hit with a bomb, ink would splash onto a nearby wall that players were occasionally unable to submerge into.
  • Fixed an issue in Tower Control on Blackbelly Skatepark in which players could climb over a wall not intended to be climbed over by jumping from the top of a tower at the right moment.
  • Fixed an issue in Blackbelly Skatepark during Rainmaker matches allowing players to make their way deep into enemy turf by making the side of a crate in a player's turf uninkable, then making use of the side of the crate.
