|“||This’ll be the coolest.||”|
— Gloves in the match against Team Retro-Gamer
Gloves is a male Inkling from the Splatoon (manga), with the "Slick" hairstyle. He always has the "freshest" gear and wears the Squidfin Hook Cans, Black V-Neck Tee, Yellow-Mesh Sneakers, and loose shorts with leggings. He wields the Splat Dualies. Before he became trendy, he wore the Samurai Gear, and used the Bamboozler 14 Mk I. He takes the role of Agent 4 in vol. 12 of the manga, and uses the Hero Dualie Replicas. Sometimes, the tentacles on his hair come off because he scrapes his head against the ground when he dodge roles, and he starts raging, but eventually sticks them back on.
Gloves is very stylish and says the word “cool” frequently, but gets very mad and confused when his tentacles come off. He likes being "Trendy" and "Fresh". He seems to not get on very well with Rider as their play styles always clash, although he and Rider get upset at some of the same stuff.
