Winner Handshake

Handshake vs. Fist Bump vs. Hug was a Splatfest event exclusive to the Americas/Oceania, Europe and Hong Kong/South Korea regions in Splatoon 3. It was the third Splatfest to take place during Drizzle Season 2023 and was announced on social networks on November 8 2023.

The Japan region exclusive Kaiten-yaki vs. Ōban-yaki vs. Imagawa-yaki Splatfest took place concurrently with this Splatfest.

Details

This was the first Splatfest in Splatoon 3 to differ by region: players who have selected the Americas/Oceania, Europe, or Hong Kong and South Korea regions were able to participate in this Splatfest as a combined group, whereas players who have selected the Japan region instead were able to participate in the Kaiten-yaki vs. Ōban-yaki vs. Imagawa-yaki Splatfest, which was held at the same time.

The Tricolor Turf War stage for this Splatfest was Manta Maria.

Schedule

Results were announced in-game on 20 November 2023 at 02:00 UTC.

“What's your go-to greeting? A handshake, a fist bump, or a hug?”
Frye

“Ooo! This one's so easy. We're all gonna be on the same team, right? FIST BUMP!”
Shiver

“Nah. Fist bumps were invented five minutes ago. Handshakes are elegant and timeless.”
Frye

“Know what else was invented five minutes ago? Air fryers! New stuff rocks!”

Big Man

“Ay. Ay! (I dunno, Frye. What's better than a hug? They can't invent a better hug!)”
Shiver

“Do you really want to hug EVERYONE? A handshake is just a pocket-sized hug.”

Shiver

“It's perfectly polite, and you don't have to get close to especially strange strangers.”
Big Man

“Ay... Ay! (Awww... Sounds like someone NEEDS a hug!)”

Frye

“Big Man's whole body IS a hug, so I get it. For the rest of us, fist bumps are cool.”
Shiver
“As cool as those blue fingers of yours? A warm handshake could defrost them...”


Frye

“Look who's talking fingers! Yours might not be so burnt if you cooked with an air fryer!”

Big Man

“Ay? Ay. (Wait-is the theme air fryers versus fingers? I wanna sit this one out.)”

Frye

“No! It's totally weak handshakes versus awesome fist bumps versus kinda OK hugs.”
Shiver

“How impartially put.”


Big Man

“Ay. Ay? (You know, fist bumps are exciting. But what if you don't have fists?)”
Frye
“Fin bumps are cool! Work with what you got!”


Big Man

“Ay? Ay. (See? That's why I could just hug you.)”
Shiver

“OK-fist bumps are cool, hugs are warm and loving. I get it. But this is your GO-TO!”

Shiver

“Personally, I'd save the fist bumps for you, Frye. And the warm hugs for Big Man.”

Shiver

“Strangers in Splatsville? Opening acts? Fans after the show? I'm shaking hands.”

Frye

“And I'm bumpin' fists. BOOYAH!”


Big Man

“Ay... (I'm still hugging everyone that I possibly can...)”
Shiver

“That settles it-we're completely at odds. Good thing we can let the Splatfest decide!”

“Yes! I offer you all condolences in the form of a handshake.”

Frye

“Ugh! Not again! Keep your handshake to yourself.”
Big Man

“...Ay. Ay. (...I'll take the handshake. But, uh, make it a finshake.)”
Shiver

“I'm certain that my years of shaking hands with our fans and supporters helped.”

Shiver

“As for you two, just shake it off. No one's stopping you from fist-bumping or hugging.”

Frye

“Yeah, I'd fist-bump everyone on Team Frye if I could. We lost, but we stayed cool.”
Big Man

“Ay! Ay! (You know I'd hug my supporters in a heartbeat! Thanks, everyone!)”
Shiver

“Well, now that we've established a go-to... I wouldn't mind learning a proper fist bump.”
Frye

“Wait. Is that why you picked handshake? You don't know HOW to fist-bump?!”
Shiver

“If a shark boops you in the wild, it's not a friendly move. And forget about hugging!”
Big Man

“Ay! Ay! (That's so sad! Now I wanna hug a shark!)”

Big Man

“Ay. Ay? (And I wanna hug you, Shiver. You can at least do a BASIC fist bump, right?)”
Shiver

“Don't patronize me. I can do plenty with my fists! But... one fist-bump lesson, please.”


Frye

“Yes! OK, first, make a fist. Then act like you're gonna go BLAMMO, and hit someone.”

Frye

“But just tap knucks. Then flair it, like BAM, fake grenade! Or cross arms and pose. Or...”
Shiver

“I knew it would be complicated...”

“Welke begroeting geef jij het liefst? Een
handdruk, boks of knuffel?”

(What is your go-to greeting? A handshake, fist bump or cuddle?)
Muriël

“O, makkie! We gaan allemaal voor hetzelfde
team, toch? Kom op, BOKS!”

(Oh, easy peasy! We are all going for the same team, right? Come on, FIST BUMP!)
Haya

“Nee, bedankt. Een boks is relatief vijf minuten
oud in vergelijking met de tijdloze handdruk.”

(No, thanks. A fist bump is relatively five minutes old in comparison to the timeless handshake.)
Muriël

“Weet je wat ook relatief vijf minuten oud is?
Airfryers! Nieuwe dingen zijn cool!”

(You know what is also relatively five minutes old? Air fryers! New things are cool!)

Ray

“Ay. Ay. (Ik weet niet, hoor, Muriël. Knuffels zijn
ook oud en daar is geen betere versie van.)”

(Ay. Ay. (I don't know, though, Frye. Cuddles are also old and there is no better version of those.))
Haya

“Je hoeft toch niet iedereen uitgebreid te
knuffelen? Een handdruk is een miniknuffel.”

(Surely you don't need to cuddle everyone extensively? A handshake is a mini cuddle.)

Haya

“Het is een beleefde knuffel waarbij je niet
te dicht bij vreemdelingen hoeft te komen.”

(It is a polite cuddle whereby you don't have to come too close to strangers.)
Ray

“Ay... Ay! (Ahhh... Volgens mij ben jij toe
aan een knuffel!)”

(Ay... Ay! (Ahhh... I believe you are in need of a cuddle!))

Muriël

“Ray is net een deken, dus logisch dat hij
knuffelt. Maar wie cool is, geeft een boks.”

(Big Man is just like a blanket, so it only makes sense that he cuddles. But those who are cool, give a fist bump.)
Notes: Possibly a reference to the Dutch announcement dialogue of the Shiver vs. Frye vs. Big Man Splatfest, where Big Man says he is "a big cuddle blanket".
Haya
“Zo koel als die verkleumde vingers van jou?
Een handdruk kan die opwarmen.”

(As cool as those numb with cold fingers of yours? A handshake can warm those up.)


Muriël

“Beter dan die verbrande vingers van jou. Dat
krijg je ervan, omdat je geen airfryer hebt.”

(Better than those burnt fingers of yours. That is what you get, because you don't have an air fryer.)

Ray

“Ay? Ay... (Ehhh, is het thema airfryers
tegen vingers? Ik heb geen van beide, dus...)”

(Ay? Ay... (Uhhh, is the theme air fryers versus fingers? I don't have either of the two, so...))

Muriël

“Nee, het gaat over suffe handdrukken tegen
coole boksen tegen... knuffels die wel oké zijn.”

(No, it is about dull handshakes versus cool fist bumps versus... cuddles that are kinda okay.)
Haya

“Wat heb je dat onpartijdig verwoord, zeg...”

(How impartially you phrased that...)


Ray

“Ay? (Boksen met vuisten ziet er cool uit,
maar wat als je geen vuisten hebt?)”

(Ay? (Fist-bumping with fists looks cool, but what if you have no fists?))
Muriël
“Dan boks je met je vinnen. Je moet roeien
met de boksen die je hebt.”

(Then you fist-bump with your fins. You have to make do with the fist bumps that you have got.)

Notes: Frye uses the idiom je moet roeien met de riemen die je hebt ("you have to make do with what you have got"), replacing riemen with boksen ("fist bumps").

Ray

“Ay. Ay. (Of ik kan je gewoon knuffelen.
Dat is hetzelfde met vuisten of vinnen.)”

(Ay. Ay. (Or I can simply cuddle you. That is the same with fists or fins.))
Haya

“Oké, boksen zijn cool en knuffels zijn warm.
Maar het gaat over wat je het vaakst doet.”

(Okay, fist bumps are cool and cuddles are warm. But it is about what you do most often.)

Haya

“Ik bewaar boksen voor jou, Muriël. En
knuffelen doe ik met Ray.”

(I'll save fist-bumping for you, Frye. And cuddling I do with Big Man.)

Haya

“Maar vreemdelingen? Andere artiesten?
Fans? Daar schud ik handen mee.”

(But strangers? Other artists? Fans? I shake hands with them.)

Muriël

“Dat maakt voor mij geen verschil, ik geef
iedereen een boks! BOKS!”

(It is all the same to me, I give everyone a fist bump! FIST BUMP!)


Ray

“Ay? (En ik knuffel altijd, want waarom afstand
houden als je een nieuwe vriend ontmoet?)”

(Ay? (And I always cuddle, because why keep your distance when you meet a new friend?))
Haya

“Zo komen we er niet uit. Dan moeten we
elkaar maar stevig begroeten in de strijd...”

“De andere teams konden het schudden
tegen Team Handdruk!”

(The other teams should have forgotten about winning against Team Handshake!)

Notes: Het kunnen schudden is said to make clear that something isn't going to happen. It is a pun on schudden ("to shake [hands]").
Muriël

“Bah, dit moment was veel cooler geweest
als we elkaar een boks hadden gegeven.”

(Bah, this moment would have been much cooler if we had given each other a fist bump.)
Ray

“Ay? (Ik wil best schudden, maar kunnen we
er vinnen schudden van maken?)”

(Ay? (I am happy to shake, but can we make it fin shaking?))

“Ik wil dit moment met beide handen grijpen
om de fans van mijn team te bedanken.”

(I would like to seize this moment with both hands to thank the fans of my team.)

Haya

“Ik reik ook mijn hand naar de andere teams.
Ze hebben dapper gebokst en geknuffeld.”

(I also reach out my hand to the other teams. They have bravely fist-bumped and cuddled.)

Muriël

“Ja, iedereen in mijn team krijgt een boks
van mij. We hebben samen hard geknokt.”

(Yes, everyone in my team gets a fist bump from me. We have fought hard together.)
Ray

“Ay! Ay! (En een knuffel voor mijn team! Ik ben
blij met iedereen die mijn groet omarmd heeft!)”

(Ay! Ay! (And a cuddle for my team! I am happy with everyone who has embraced my greeting!))
Haya

“Ik neem aan dat een handdruk nu onze
standaard groet is als we fans ontmoeten?”

(I take it that a handshake is now our standard greeting when we meet fans?)
Muriël

“Ehhh, misschien... Trekken we dan ook een
pak aan en gaan we heel serieus doen?”

(Uhhh, perhaps... Do we put on a suit and are we going to be very serious, then, too?)
Haya

“Zit je nu naar een reden te zoeken om het
niet te doen?”

(Are you now trying to look for a reason not to do it?)
Ray

“Ay! (Hmmm, misschien kunnen we met zo'n
serieuze groet en kleding aandacht trekken!)”

(Ay! (Hmmm, perhaps we can attract attention with such a serious greeting and clothing!))

Ray

“Ay. (Ik wil daarvoor best een pak aantrekken...
als ze iets in mijn vorm hebben.)”

(Ay. (I am happy to put on a suit for that... if they have something in my shape.))
Haya

“Hoor je dat, Muriël? Zo'n imago kan indruk
maken, dus waarom zou je tegen zijn?”

(Do you hear that, Frye? Such an image can make an impression, so why would you be against it?)


Muriël

“Ik ben niet tegen! Ik ga dan voor een pak met
glitters en vlammen, met een zonnebril erbij!”

(I am not against! I am going for a suit with glitter and flames, with sunglasses to go with it, then!)

Muriël

“En bij een handdruk knijp ik heel hard terwijl ik
de ander over de rand van mijn bril aanstaar!”

(And at a handshake I squeeze very hard while I stare at the other over the rim of my glasses!)
Haya

“Pfff, ik wist wel dat het nooit echt serieus
zou worden...”

(Pfff, I should have known that it would never really get serious...)

(Ay! Ay! (I'd hug everyone in my team if I could! Thank you, friends!))
Кулла

«Теперь, когда мы победили... покажи
мне свое приветствие кулаками, Мурия!»

(Now when we won... show me your fists greeting, Frye!)
Мурия

«Так вот почему ты выбрала рукопожатие!
Как можно не знать про «кулачки»?!»

(So that's why you chose handshake! How can you not know about «fist bumping»?!)
Кулла

«Тыкать носом у акул не принято, это
знак агрессии. Обниматься и подавно...»

(Poking noses isn't common among sharks, it's a sign of agression. And even more so hugging...)
Биг Ман

«Ик! Ик! (Какой ужас! Я должен срочно
обнять акулу!)»

(Ay! Ay! (How terrible! I need to hug a shark immediately!))

Биг Ман

«Ик. Ик! (Начну с тебя, Кулла. И заодно
объясню тебе азы «кулачков»!)»

(Ay. Ay! (I'll start with you, Shiver. And in the mean time, I'll explain you the basics of «fist bumping»!))
Кулла

«АЗЫ?! Я, между прочим, эксперт...
кулачных приемов. Но совет приму.»

(THE BASICS?! Just saying, I'm an expert of the... fist techniques. But I'll take your advice.)


Мурия

«Класс! Тогда сожми руку в кулак...
и ВЖУХ! Направь его, как для удара.»

(Neat! Then clench your hand into a fist... and WHOOSH! Aim it as if for a hit.)

Мурия

«Только осторожно со ВЖУХОМ! Слишком
быстро – не то, слишком медленно тоже!»

(Just be careful with the WHOOSH part! Too fast isn't just right, and neither too slow!)
Кулла

«Я так и знала. Просто, конечно!»

(I knew it. Simple, of course!)

「說到問候方式,你們喜歡握手,碰拳,還是擁抱?」

(When it comes to greetings, do you prefer a handshake, a fist bump, or a hug?)
曼曼

「這樣大家肯定都會選同一隊,當然是碰拳對吧?」

(Everyone's so going to pick the same team this time, it's gonna be fist bump, right?)
莎莎

「不不,碰拳可是最近才發明的新玩意。握手才是既橫跨時代又優雅的問候方式。」

(No, no, fist bumping is a new thing that was invented recently. A handshake is a timeless and elegant way of greeting others.)
曼曼

「氣炸鍋也是最近才發明的啊。新的東西總是比舊的棒!」

(The air fryer was also invented recently. Newer stuff is always better than older stuff!)

鬼福

「魟、魟!(不,我認為擁抱才是最好的。擁抱可不是靠發明的啊!)」

(Ay, ay! (No, I feel like hugs are the best. Hugs didn't have to be invented!))
莎莎

「不管是誰你都會想擁抱嗎?真要說,握手也能算是袖珍版的擁抱。」

(Would you like to hug everyone regardless of who they are? Seriously, handshakes could be seen as a pocket version of a hug.)

莎莎

「不失禮節,又不需要太接近奇怪的人。」

(It's not rude, and you don't have to get too close to weird people.)
鬼福

「魟⋯⋯魟!(哎呀⋯⋯聽起來有人需要一個擁抱!)」

(Ay...Ay! (Ooh...sounds like someone needs a hug!))

曼曼

「畢竟鬼福的整個身子就像是個擁抱,但對我們普通人來說碰拳是最酷的方式。」

(Big Man's entire body is for sure just like a hug, but fist bumping is the coolest way to do it for us ordinary people.)
莎莎
「看看你發青的手指。如果是握手,就能溫暖你冰冷的指尖了呢。」

(Take a lookie-look at your blue fingers. If you choose handshake, you can warm up those cold fingertips of yours.)


曼曼

「你想聊手指嗎?乖乖用氣炸鍋做料理的話,你的手指也不會被燙成那樣了吧。」

(You want to talk about fingers? If you used air fryers to cook, sweetie, then your fingers wouldn't be burnt like that.)

鬼福

「魟?(等等,這次的主題變成氣炸鍋vs手指了嗎?這樣的話我可能不想參加⋯⋯)」

(Ay? (Wait, has the theme changed to air fryers vs fingers? If so, I don't think I want to participate...))

曼曼

「不對!是柔弱的握手vs帥氣的碰拳vs尚可的擁抱才是這次的主題!」

(No way! The theme is a weak handshake vs a cool fist bump vs a passable hug!)
莎莎

「還真是公正的總結啊。」

(That really is such a fair summary.)


鬼福

「魟?(碰拳的確是很帥氣,但是沒有拳頭的話該怎麼辦?)」

(Ay? (Fist bumping is indeed cool, but what about those of us without fists?))
曼曼
「碰鰭也不錯吧?用身上有的東西想辦法解決吧。」

(Can't go wrong with fin bumps, right? You gotta use what you have to find a solution.)


鬼福

「魟?(看吧,這樣我直接擁抱你更好。)」

(Ay? (See, it's better if I just hug you.))
莎莎

「好吧,碰拳很酷,擁抱很暖心,這個我理解。不過這真的是最常用的問候方式嗎?」

(Okay, fist bumps are cool, hugs are heartwarming, I understand that. But is this really the most common greeting?)

莎莎

「我大概只會跟曼曼碰拳,也只會跟鬼福擁抱。」

(I likely would only give fist bumps to Frye, and also only give hugs to Big Man.)

莎莎

「如果是蠻頹鎮中不認識的人、工作夥伴,或是演唱會後的粉絲,那當然是選擇握手吧。」

(If it's some Splatsville stranger, a work colleague, or an after-concert fan, then I'm definitely choosing to shake hands.)

曼曼

「我絕對會是碰拳!」

(I'd definitely just be fist bumping!)


鬼福

「魟⋯⋯(不管是誰,我果然還是想來個擁抱~)」

(ay...(Doesn't matter who it is, I still would really like a hug~))
莎莎

「就是這麼回事,我們的意見完全分歧。幸好我們能用祭典決定!」

(Look at what's happened, our opinions are completely different. Fortunately we can use the Splatfest to decide!)

Trivia

  • Alongside Kaiten-yaki vs. Ōban-yaki vs. Imagawa-yaki, Handshake vs. Fist Bump vs. Hug marked the first time a third Splatfest took place within a single season.
  • The initial announcement of this Splatfest on the Splatoon NA Twitter featured an image with slightly altered wording compared to other English-language announcements for both the question and the name of Team Fist Bump (see 'Artwork' above). The in-game announcement for North America later featured the same wording as the prior Europe and Oceania announcements.
  • Since this Splatfest did not occur in Japan, the related dialogue for Anarchy Splatcast was not available in Japanese. As a result, if the system language was set to Japanese, the Splatfest-specific dialogue would be displayed in English.
  • This is currently the only Splatfest in Splatoon 3 exclusive to Western regions to share ink colors with the Japan region's concurrently-held Splatfest.
  • With 18.45% of the popular vote, Team Handshake is currently the least popular team to ever win a Splatfest in both Splatoon 3 and in the entire series to date, beating out Team Barbarian's 23%.
  • Had the point values for Conch Shells and Votes remained as they were prior to Version 3.1.0 (8p and 10p, respectively), then Team Fist Bump would have been declared the winner.
    • Team Fist Bump would've also been declared the winner if the scoring system introduced in Version 7.0.0 (which awards points for both 1st and 2nd placed teams in each of the result categories) was used instead.
  • In the announcement from the news article for this Splatfest, there was an error in the date. Instead of being November 17th - 19th, it read November 17th - 20th. This was fixed in-game, but is still present on the article.
