Mr. Coco is a character in Splatoon 3 who runs the shoe shop in Splatsville, Crush Station. He is a kind-hearted coconut crab with an intimidating appearance that contrasts with his personality.

He wears a white graphic tank top, denim shorts with an orange belt, and wristbands on his claws. He wears a total of 6 mismatched Enperry shoes on his legs, starting on the left and going counter-clockwise the shoes are: one Black & Blue Squidkid V, one Sun & Shade Squidkid IV, one Blue & Black Squidkid IV, one Online Squidkid V, and a pair of Red & White Squidkid V. He wears a black cap with a red brim.

Personality and traits

Mr. Coco looks very intimidating, but when a customer gets to his store, he becomes very nice and offers him to try new shoes. Either way, his dialogue seems to be very kind as he wants the customers to be happy. In short terms, he looks up to his customers.

Als je meer wilt weten, moet je op drukken! Of niet, dat mag ook! Dan kun je verdergaan met winkelen!"
(Come in! come in! Welcome to Crustation! Ooooh! How fresh you look today! But you know how you can be even fresher! With nice new shoes on your feet! Did you know that gear has certain abilities! Of course you knew that! So when you buy gear, you look fresh and play with fresh abilities! Superfresh! If you want to know more, you have to press ! Or not, that's okay too! Then you can continue shopping!)
When a player of level 10 or up enters the shop for the first time:
  • "Wauw! Jij hebt echt de versheidsfactor! Eens zien wat ik een versionista als jij kan aanbieden!"

  • "O, ik moet je wat uitleggen! Luister goed, want het gaat over schoenen, dus het is superinteressant! Als je iets wilt kopen waar je al een paar van hebt, kun je kiezen of je er de zeldzaamheid van verhoogt of dat je die van jou inruilt om de effecten ervan terug te draaien. Ik zei toch dat het interessant was?! Alleen moet je wel een lastige keuze maken! Veel succes daarmee!"
(Oh, I have to explain something to you! Listen carefully, because it's about shoes, so it's super-interesting! If you want to buy something that you already have a pair of, you can choose whether to raise the star power or to trade in yours to reverse its abilities. I told you it was interesting! Only you have a tough choice to make! Good luck with that!)
When selecting a pair of shoes:
  • "Deze dan?!"
(These then?!)
When selecting a pair of already-owned shoes:
  • "Daar heb je al een paar van! Wil je het paar dat je hebt zeldzamer maken of inruilen om de effecten terug te draaien?"

When selecting a pair of already-bought shoes on the same day:
  • "Ik weet dat deze geweldig zijn, maar je hoeft er niet gelijk twee paar van te kopen op dezelfde dag! Jeetje, wat ben jij een schoenenfan!"
(I know these are great, but you don't have to buy two pairs of them right away on the same day! Geez, what a shoe fan you are!)
When trying to trade in a pair of shoes that has the same main ability:
  • "Wacht! Je gaat toch geen paar omruilen als ze allebei hetzelfde hoofdeffecten hebben?! Hahaha! Volgens mij maak je een grapje!"
(Wait! You're not going to trade in a pair if they both have the same main ability, are you?! Hahaha! I think you're kidding!)
When buying a pair of shoes:
  • "Trek je ze gelijk aan?!"
(Are you putting them on right away?!)
After buying a pair of shoes:
  • "Dank je wel! Dank je wel! Als je een ander paar wilt aantrekken, kun je dat doen in het uitrustingsscherm! Veel plezier ermee!"
