Squid Research Lab
When giving presentations about the Splatoon series, and for promotional events, he often takes on the persona of a researcher at the fictional Squid Research Lab, by dressing in a white lab coat and dark sunglasses. As part of acting out this character he also makes squid-related puns by replacing/emphasizing the sound いか with its homophone イカ, "squid", most commonly イカがですか ("How are you?") and イカした ("It was lively / energetic").
