— Eight, when asked about his name.

Eight is a character from the Splatoon manga, filling the role of Agent 8 from the Octo Expansion. He first appeared in Chapter 24 as an Octoling with no memory who woke up with Cap'n Cuttlefish.


Eight wears two different outfits in the Splatoon manga. His main weapon is the Blaster.

Octo Arc

During the Octo arc, he wears the Squidlife Headphones, the unique, unnamed Octo Expansion clothing and the Null Boots Replica.

Post-Octo Arc

Upon reaching the surface, Eight gets a new outfit. He again wears the Squidlife Headphones, now with the Red Cuttlegear LS and Suede Gray Lace-Ups.


During the Octo Arc, Eight was an amnesiac, with barely any memory. Eight always seems to go with the flow, and doesn't mind Goggles' ridiculous actions.


  • According to the Inkling Almanac, Eight has started to pickle things thanks to Goggles' and Cap'n Cuttlefish's advice.
  • He has decided to keep the name that Goggles gave him, even though he has his memories back, because he has grown fond of it.
  • In the Funny Man vs. Straight Man Splatfest in Volume 8, he was on Team Funny Man.
  • He was on Team Order for the final Splatfest.
