Breaking news! We've confirmed the identity of the furry creature seen previously in both video footage and the recent Testfire event! Ready for it? Everyone, meet Li'l Judd!

Okay, I'll be the first to admit he's adorable, but from what we've been able to observe, he's gunning for Judd's spot as premier Turf War judge like a bloodthirsty tiger crouching in the jungle underbrush. The details of his origins are still shrouded in mystery, but rest assured our research on this fuzzy subject will continue.

Li'l Judd is a cat in Splatoon 2 that resembles a smaller version of Judd, with whom he judges Multiplayer matches.


Like Judd, Li'l Judd is a bipedal domestic cat with a large head and body, small limbs, a tail that ends in an arrow shape, and tuxedo-like fur patterning. However, Li'l Judd has a smaller face in relation to his head, and his eyes are small and beady. His fur is fuzzier, and the dark portions of it are much lighter. Additionally, his limbs are even smaller compared to his body.

Splatoon 2

Together with Judd, Li'l Judd judges Turf Wars and Ranked Battles. Judd represents the player's team, called "Good Guys", and Li'l Judd represents the enemy team, called "Bad Guys". When the "Good Guys" win, Judd brandishes a flag in their ink color and Li'l Judd falls down in defeat; the opposite happens when the "Bad Guys" win. Li'l Judd can also be seen in Inkopolis Square sitting on top of a sleeping Judd. In Sunken Scroll 27, it is implied that Li'l Judd is a clone of Judd, created upon reactivating the device that brought him to the future.

According to Live from Squid Research Lab, Li'l Judd wants to take over Judd's job.[1]


"Meow! (Looks like you've leveled up enough to put your skills to the test in Ranked Battles! Ranked battles are for Inklings who mean business. Press Button1 Minus.png in the lobby to check out the rules.)" --Said after reaching Level 10.

"Meow! (Do you have any ability chunks yet? When you scrub gear or reallocate abilities, the original abilities become ability chunks. Ability chunks don't do much by themselves, but you can combine them to make abilities on demand! And keep an eye out for the young urchin lad. He knows just what to do with ability chunks!)"

"Mew! (In Tower Control, the team that rides the tower into the opponent's goal wins. You can make the tower's path safer by splatting any oppawnents in its way ahead of time.)"


  • According to the relationship chart posted by Nintendo, Li'l Judd was aware from the moment he was born that he is a clone of Judd.[2]
  • The Art of Splatoon 2 states that Li'l Judd "is waiting for his chance to stab Judd in the back".
