Nami is a character in the Splatoon series. She is a band synthesizer and keyboard player that played for Squid Squad in Splatoon and Front Roe in Splatoon 3.


Nami is a medium-height, thin, pale-skinned Inkling with orange eyes, shoulder-length tentacles of the same color that are thicker on the right and small, round eyebrows. She has three eyelashes under each eye and is notably the only Inkling shown with a disconnected eye mask, as it does not cross the bridge of her nose. In Splatoon, her outfit consists of a white collared shirt with a brown and orange striped tie, a long dark blue skirt, and light brown shoes. In Splatoon 3, her outfit consists of a black Chinese-style suit with gray cuffs, and dark yellow shoes with lighter soles.
