Splatoon 2

Crusty Sean retains his original appearance in Splatoon 2. He still wears sneakers on all of his feet and wears the same jacket, although now he wears a white baseball cap backwards with new glasses and has a black hoop earring on the right side.

Personality and traits


Crusty Sean is the shopkeeper of Shrimp Kicks, the Shoe store in Inkopolis Plaza and is known to be carelessly friendly. He is obsessed with wearing many of his favorite shoes all at the same time thanks to having many legs.[1] While his "fried" body gives him the look of a tempura, it is actually just a slightly morbid designer jacket.[2]

Crusty Sean's version of DJ Lee Fish's song Lookin' Fresh has the bass turned all the way up and emphasizes percussion, because his gear corresponds to the lower part of the body. Furthermore, the heavy beat gives it a bouncy sound, reflecting his outgoing personality.

Splatoon 2

In Splatoon 2 Crusty Sean is no longer the owner of Shrimp Kicks, but rather, the owner of a food truck, the Crust Bucket, in Inkopolis Square.

He now sells various foods and drinks which offer various benefits to Inklings. His various food items can increase the amount of coins earned or points gained during online play by 1.5x or 2x. Additionally, his selection of drinks increases the odds rolling certain gear abilities.

  • Crusty Sean's name is a play on the word "crustacean."
  • Despite what it may look like, Sean's crusty coating is only a jacket. He has not actually been fried and made into a tempura dish.
    • However, according to the developer's interview, Live from the Squid Research Lab's report states that he actually deep-fries himself in a batter bath to achieve this appearance. He needs to repeat this bath every day to keep the batter crispy.[3]
  • According to the art book, his hobbies include collecting movies and he's looking for "a cute girlfriend".


Splatoon 2

  • Crusty Sean was first revealed to be returning in the first full Splatoon 2 trailer, and was confirmed to be Crusty Sean and not another prawn character in an interview with Hisashi Nogami for Famitsu magazine.[4]
