The Double-Cross Dab emote shown in the catalog.

Emotes are animations performed by the player character when winning a battle or clearing a Salmon Run shift in Splatoon 3. Most of them are obtained through the catalog at Hotlantis.

List of emotes


The player starts with the emote Flip Out. It changes depending on the current weapon type the player is holding, making up a total of eleven variations.

The icon of the unobtainable Win TriCol emote.

There are two special emotes performed under certain conditions during a Splatfest. The first emote, named Win TriCol, is performed after a Tricolor Turf War, when the attacking team wins: the winners who covered the most turf perform their chosen emote, while the other attacking team nods with crossed arms.

The second emote is performed when a team wins a 100x or 333x Battle. The animation starts with the players doing a little dance before pointing a finger up in the air (at which point the tip of it shines briefly); the whole team then looks at each other, and it ends with every member striking a different pose.



  • Flip Out is the only emote so far that features the player's weapon and varies based on its class.
  • Some emote animations sync with others when executed. One notable group of emotes with this trait are the Victory Strut and the Double-Cross Dab emotes, as their ending stances are shown at the same time.
  • One of the animations for Inklings and Octolings in Splatsville Square is very similar to the No Chill emote. The biggest difference is in the square, they open their mouth in a sigh, while in the No Chill emote their mouth is closed throughout.

Translation notes

  1. The word "кревед" "kreved" comes from a Russian meme phrase "Превед, медвед, йа криветко!" which is a very corrupted and ungrammatical way of saying "Hello, bear, I'm shrimp!". In this case, the word "кревед" is a fusion of the words "превед" "preved" (hello) and "креветка" "krevetka" (shrimp).
  2. Used to provoke someone. Can mean the like of "you got something to say?" "you want a piece of me?" "you got a problem with that?"
