— Jelonzo upon entering Jelly Fresh(NA)

Jelonzo (Japanese: エチゼン Echizen) is a blue jellyfish who owns Jelly Fresh, a clothing store in Inkopolis, and is one of 2 only known jellyfish able to communicate with Inklings,[1]the other being Jelfonzo.

Appearance

Jelonzo is a blue jellyfish who has black rhombus-shaped eyes. Jelonzo wears a purple and white mesh cap and a black scarf with big blue dots. He alternates between four different tops, one top being white with a blue, purple and pink fuzzy object and an eye in the middle, the second top being black with a neon green jellyfish in the centre, the third is white with an orange skull and white tentacles coming out from the bottom and the fourth one is orange and grey emblazoned with several white jellyfish which appear to look like Goombas from Mario games.

Personality and traits

Jelonzo is the charismatic clerk that runs the clothing shop. With his uncanny sense for the hottest trends, he is viewed as a fashion god of sorts by all the young squids in town. He hails from distant waters and has a strange way of speaking that can make it difficult to understand him, but that may be one of the secrets to his success.[2] Aside from his awkward grammar, he also is known to say "BLUUH" from time to time. This may be common to jellyfish (as an onomatopoeia referencing their squishiness), or it could simply be another of Jelonzo's quirks.

Separating Jelonzo from the common jellyfish is his skin color: while other jellyfish have blue-green skin, Jelonzo's is a pure blue with a purple tinge in some areas. It also seems to glows slightly, which has been confirmed by Callie; she often mistakes him for a "glowing ghost", as seen in one of her comments on Bluefin Depot. Other jellyfish may also have this ability, as all jellyfish in Inkopolis Plaza give off a very faint green glow during a Splatfest.

Jelonzo's version of DJ Lee Fish's song Lookin' Fresh is faded out except for the melody, the "center", because his gear goes on the middle part of the body. It also has many bubbly sound effects in the background, showing his bubbly and ecstatic personality as well as referencing his gelatinous species.

Unlike the other shop keepers, Jelonzo's appearance is not constant, as he wears one of four different shirts each day. However, his scarf and hat remain the same.

Trivia

  • Jelonzo's name comes from the word "jelly," as he is a jellyfish.
  • When switching to Jelly Fresh from another shop, Jelonzo can be seen with his tentacle stretched towards the rack of shirts on the back wall for an instant. This is possibly a protective gesture, as the shirts are quite shaken up when switching between shops.
  • None of the shirts Jelonzo wears can be purchased from Jelly Fresh.
