The name(s) presented in this article could be conjectural.

Label is a term that refers to words found in names of gear that convey that they belong in one group, often supported by the fact that they share the same pattern of naming in other languages. Some labels are also found using a brand's mascot name, like FishFry, while others share icons or designs.

A label can also refer to gear without a pattern in the naming when certain gear shares the same icon or design on them, like Reel. Then the label gets its name from one particular piece of gear or another source. Labels are found in both Splatoon and Splatoon 2.

Arrow

An advertisement for Arrows.

'Arrow' is a label appearing in both Splatoon and Splatoon 2.

This label refers to five pieces of Takoroka Takoroka footwear and one piece of Toni Kensa Toni Kensa footwear. The S2 Gear Shoes Athletic Arrows.png Athletic Arrows, S2 Gear Shoes Crazy Arrows.png Crazy Arrows, S2 Gear Shoes Orange Arrows.png Orange Arrows, S2 Gear Shoes White Arrows.png White Arrows, and S2 Gear Shoes New-Day Arrows.png New-Day Arrows, being variants of each other, have a small Takoroka logo at the top of the tongue. Another Takoroka logo can be seen on the back of the shoes.

The S2 Gear Shoes Arrow Pull-Ons.png Arrow Pull-Ons are almost identical to the other Arrows, the difference being that a Toni Kensa logo can be seen on the back of the shoes as well.

The name 'Arrow' comes from the Japanese name of the label, "アローズ" Arōzu, which translates to 'arrows'. Because the label refers to a pair of shoes, the name is pluralized.

Dakro

Dakro's logo.

'Dakro' is a label that appears in Splatoon 2.

This label refers to two pieces of Zink Zink clothing. The S2 Gear Clothing Dakro Golden Tee.png Dakro Golden Tee and S2 Gear Clothing Dakro Nana Tee.png Dakro Nana Tee, being variants of each other, have a rectangular design with Zink's name on the front. The topmost two characters in the design resemble a '10'. A tag with Zink's logo can be found on the hem of the tee and another on the back of the tee.

The name 'Dakro' comes from the Japanese name of the label, "デカロ" dekaro, which is a combination of the words "デカ" deka, the Greek word for 'ten', and the Japanese word for 'logo', "ロゴ" rogo. It might also come from deka and Zink's Japanese name, "アイロニック" Aironikku, considering the label 'Dakronik' is constructed similarly.

Dakronik

'Dakronik' is a label that appears in Splatoon 2.

This label refers to five pieces of Zink Zink footwear. The S2 Gear Shoes Black Dakroniks.png Black Dakroniks, S2 Gear Shoes Chocolate Dakroniks.png Chocolate Dakroniks and S2 Gear Shoes Mint Dakroniks.png Mint Dakroniks, being variants of each other, have an arrow around the back of the heel and a tag with Zink's name on it on the side of the shoes. On the tongue of the shoes, the Dakro logo can be found. This could mean that Dakroniks are shoes of Dakro, which is supported by the fact that the first part of their names is the same in English and Japanese. The characters resembling the '10' from Dakro's logo can be seen on the back of the shoes.

The S2 Gear Shoes Blue Laceless Dakroniks.png Blue Laceless Dakroniks and the S2 Gear Shoes White Laceless Dakroniks.png White Laceless Dakroniks, being variants of each other, also have an arrow around the back of the heel and a tag with Zink's name on it on the side of the shoes. They have the Dakro logo on the tongue of the shoe as well. They also have the same '10' characters on the back of the shoes.

The name 'Dakronik' comes from the Japanese portmanteau "デカロニック" dekaronikku which is a combination of the word "デカ" deka, the Greek word for 'ten', and Zink's Japanese name, "アイロニック" Aironikku. Because the label refers to a pair of shoes, the name is pluralised.

Dakronik's Spanish name is very similar to the Seahorse and Hi-Horse labels, their names being 'Hipocampo-B', 'Hipocampo' and 'Hipocampo-A', respectively.

Deca

'Deca' is a label that appears in Splatoon 2.

This label refers to two pieces of Zink Zink clothing and one piece of Forge Forge headgear.

The S2 Gear Headgear Deca Tackle Visor Helmet.png Deca Tackle Visor Helmet has Inkling text and characters resembling Inkling numbers on its front and back. A design goes around the sides and top of the helmet. This design does not seem to resemble anything.

The name 'Deca' comes from the Greek word "deka" meaning 'ten'. The label derives from the Japanese label "デカ" deka, also deriving from the Greek. This might be a reference to squids having ten tentacles. Deca's Japanese label is used to construct both the Japanese labels for Dakro and Dakronik. This is supported by the fact that "deka" is usually used as a prefix in words. This could also be coincidence.

Eminence

'Eminence' is a label that appears in Splatoon 2.

The navy variant has Enperry's name on the back while the milky variant has a white, gold, red, and black squid emblem on both the front and back sides of the jacket.

The name 'Eminence' comes from the same English noun meaning 'a position of prominence or superiority'. In other languages, Eminence's name is the same as the King label. However, Eminence's Italian name is the same as the Enperrial label.

Enperrial

'Enperrial' is a label that appears in Splatoon 2.

This label refers to two pieces of Enperry Enperry footwear. The S2 Gear Shoes Milky Enperrials.png Milky Enperrials and the S2 Gear Shoes Navy Enperrials.png Navy Enperrials, being variants of each other, have Enperry's name on the back of the heel.

The name 'Enperrial' comes from the Japanese name of the label, "エンペリアル" Enperiaru, which translates to 'Enperial'. This likely comes from Enperry's Japanese name, "エンペリー" Enperī, and the Japanese word for 'imperial', "インペリアル" Inperiaru. Because the label refers to a pair of shoes, the name is pluralised.

FC Albacore

This design can be seen on FC Albacore.

The S2 Gear Headgear Do-Rag, Cap, & Glasses.png Do-Rag, Cap, & Glasses has Skalop's logo on the front view of the cap. A Skalop logo sticker can be seen on the brim of the cap and the same Inkling lettering resembling the logo of Nintendo can be seen on the back view of the cap.

The Inkling Nintendo logo can also be found on Urchin Rock tees and on banners in Starfish Mainstage, but with a blue background instead of a red one. If this Nintendo logo is FC Albacore's name, it could mean that FC Albacore is a sponsor of Urchin Rock. A sign in Goby Arena can be found with the same Nintendo logo.

The squid emblem can also be seen in cafés in Arowana Mall and The Reef, giving the impression that FC Albacore and these cafés are somehow related.

Slipstream United

The squid emblem can be found on the right sleeve.

Urchin Rock

Inkling text featuring the Squid emblem.

A similar design can be found on most mentioned tees.

'Urchin Rock' is a label that appears in Splatoon 2.

This label refers to six pieces of Rockenberg Rockenberg clothing and two pieces of Takoroka Takoroka clothing. The S2 Gear Clothing Black Urchin Rock Tee.png Black Urchin Rock Tee and S2 Gear Clothing White Urchin Rock Tee.png White Urchin Rock Tee, being variants of each other, have a logo and two pins on the chest as well as the same logo on the back.

The S2 Gear Clothing Chirpy Chips Band Tee.png Chirpy Chips Band Tee, S2 Gear Clothing Hightide Era Band Tee.png Hightide Era Band Tee, S2 Gear Clothing Squid Squad Band Tee.png Squid Squad Band Tee and S2 Gear Clothing Wet Floor Band Tee.png Wet Floor Band Tee each have their own original design on the front of the tee, but all have the same logo on the back as the ones on the Black Urchin Rock Tee and White Urchin Rock Tee.

The Japanese, German and Spanish name of the Urchin Rock tees all refer to Starfish Mainstage, either supporting that the Urchin Rock logo found on them is the logo of Starfish Mainstage or Urchin Rock is the name of an organisation that host the concert there and that is their logo.

Although not having Urchin Rock in the name nor the same label as the previous tees, the S2 Gear Clothing Takoroka Galactic Tie Dye.png Takoroka Galactic Tie Dye and the S2 Gear Clothing Takoroka Rainbow Tie Dye.png Takoroka Rainbow Tie Dye, being variants of each other, have the first logo found in the image in this section on the front. A tag on the bottom has Takoroka's logo. On the back, they feature the same unnamed logo next to Takoroka's logo as well.

Certain logos can be seen on Urchin Rock gear.

From right to left, top to bottom:

  • This logo seems to be from a skateboard brand since this logo can be found on skateboards and shops that display skateboards in Arowana Mall and The Reef. It is heavily featured on tape and signs found in Blackbelly Skatepark and can be found on banners in Starfish Mainstage.
  • This is the logo of Cooler Heads and can be seen above the lowest jumbotron on the Deca Tower.
  • This is the logo that appears on FC Albacore-labeled gear and can also be seen on a sign in Goby Arena and above Ammo Knights.
  • This logo is found on banners in Starfish Mainstage and on signs in Blackbelly Skatepark.
  • This logo can be seen on a banner hanging from the building to the left when facing the amiibo box on Inkopolis Square.
  • This logo is featured on stickers in Starfish Mainstage.
  • This logo can be found on Inkopolis Square in the alleyway to the entrance of the Deepsea Metro.
  • This logo is visible on a banner in Starfish Mainstage.
  • This logo can be seen to the right of the lowest jumbotron on the Deca Tower, although with different lettering under the design.
  • Yet unknown.

Speculation

  • When comparing Enperry's name with the text found on gear with the Octoking label, the latter half of the characters on Octoking gear have been replaced with different ones. This could mean that the latter half of Enperry's name translates to 'squid' in Inkling, while the latter half of the characters on Octoking gear translates to 'octo'. That leaves 'king', which translates from the former half of the characters. This would mean that Enperry's name in Inkling translates to 'king squid', while the Octoking gear features text that translates to 'king octo'. This is supported by the fact that the Octoking's Japanese name is translated as 'king octo' rather than Octoking and that the latter half of Enperry's name is often shown with a crown on King-labeled gear.
    • Another point that supports this theory is that Enperry's name loosely resembles "大王イカ" daiō-ika, the Japanese name for giant squid. But when the words are being translated separately, "大王" Daiō means 'great king' and "イカ" ika means 'squid'.
    • This is the same for Octoking's name with the last part of the name loosely resembling "たこ" Tako, Japanese for 'octopus'.
