Dialogue

  • The same dialogue was used for the rematch, but due to the access to in-game data, all languages (as well as the losing team's victory dialogue) are available in that page's "Dialogue" section.
    • In addition, the rematch added the Japan region to the Splatfest, so brand-new Japanese dialogue was added there as well.

«Слив засчитан.»

(Get roasted.)
NOE
Notes: Comes from a Russian meme "слив засчитан" "sliv zashchitan" (literally translates as "the drain counted"). Слиться slit'sya ("to get flushed/drained down") in Russian slang means to run away or end a conversation early after defeat, and слить slit' ("to flush/drain something down") means to bring someone to this state.

Trivia

  • Team Chicken marks the first time a solid white ink color was used in North America and Europe. Japan wouldn't see solid white ink until Team Hello Kitty in the first round of the Sanrio Splatfest Tournament.
  • Near the end of the English and Spanish (Latin American) announcement dialogue, after a lengthy argument on the theoretical paradox of a chicken or egg coming first, Pearl and Marina begin laughing maniacally, after which Marina says "It's funny because we're all living in a simulation and free will is a lie." This is a reference to the philosphical topics of reality being a simulation and whether or not free will exists. The French version has Marina question if they are living in reality, however, she does not outright state they are in a simulation.
  • In all languages, in this Splatfest's results dialogue, Marina states the fact that scientifically, the correct answer is that the egg came first, contrary to the results.
    • However, the scientific answer is reflected in the popular vote.
  • Flowers vs. Dumplings, the Japanese Splatfest that occurred the week before Chicken vs. Egg, was also a spring-themed Splatfest based on an adage.
