The Business Animal is a piece of clothing in the Splatoon series.
In Splatoon 3, it is a 1-star item produced by Emberz and comes with the primary ability Ninja Squid. It can be purchased from Man-o'-Wardrobe for Cash 2,500 or from SplatNet 3 Shop for Cash 5,000.


The Business Animal is a short-sleeved shirt made from scraps of other clothing. The main part consists of a dull gray shirt with dirty white buttons featured on both the placket and the collar. The sleeves are slightly baggy and reach to the wearer's elbows. The shirt's sides are made of salvaged parts of the Herbivore Tee and the Carnivore Tee with the leopard pattern side also including the pocket and the collar stand. The patchwork parts are also shorter than the shirt proper, making the hems and cuffs unmatching. The back consists of a stripe of white material in a gray checked pattern. A small Emberz label is sewn to the shirt's hem, cut in two by different fabrics.

The Business Animal comes with Ninja Squid as the primary ability when purchased from shop or ordered from Murch, which, being exclusive to the main slot of Clothing, prevents the wearer from also having Ability Doubler, Haunt, Respawn Punisher, or Thermal Ink. As a 1-star item, the Business Animal comes with two additional slots for secondary abilities. The star level may be increased with a Super Sea Snail, or by purchasing additional copies of it from Man-o'-Wardrobe for 10,000 (first), 30,000 (second), 50,000 (third), 100,000 (fourth), or 200,000 (fifth) Cash per star. Increasing the star level to 1 or 2 stars will also add another secondary ability slot to the Business Animal. Increasing the star level beyond 2 stars will increase the gear experience gained by the Business Animal by a cumulative 3.333...% up to 10% additional experience at five-star level. Since it is made by the Emberz brand, it has a higher chance of rolling Intensify Action and a lower chance of rolling Special Charge Up to fill its secondary ability slot.



"Business Animal" could be a play on the phrase "party animal".
