New Squidbeak Splatoon

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki
The New Squidbeak Splatoon as of Splatoon 3.

The New Squidbeak Splatoon is a secret platoon of soldiers created to battle the Octarians and the successor to the Squidbeak Splatoon. It was formed by Cap'n Cuttlefish after the Great Zapfish was stolen by the Octarians. He recruited his granddaughter, Callie, who in turn recruited her cousin Marie, into the platoon to search for the missing Zapfish. Cap'n Cuttlefish later persuaded Agent 3 to join as well.

The New Squidbeak Splatoon successfully defeated the Great Octoweapons and DJ Octavio on two different occasions, recruiting Agent 4 and several affiliates on the second occasion. Together, they recaptured the stolen Zapfish and restored power to Inkopolis. After recruiting a new Agent 3 to investigate the Great Zapfish's third disappearance, they joined forces with DJ Octavio and Deep Cut, stopping Mr. Grizz's plan to create a new era of mammalian dominance at the expense of the Inklings and Octarians.


Agent 1
Agent 2
  • Agent 2 - The other Squid Sister, Marie worked with Agent 1 to stop DJ Octavio in Splatoon. Like her cousin, Agent 2 was never directly seen in Octo Valley. In Splatoon 2, she recruited Agent 4 and acted as their mentor, also appearing during the final boss battle to free Agent 1 from the mind-control of the "hypnoshades" by shooting them off with a Hero Charger. She continues to support the New Squidbeak Splatoon in Splatoon 3.
  • The Captain - The player character in Splatoon entered Octo Valley to be immediately greeted by Cap'n Cuttlefish, who recruited them as the first Agent 3 to defeat DJ Octavio and rescue the Great Zapfish along the way. They reappeared in the Octo Expansion, during which they were brought to the Deepsea Metro while in the middle of a mission alongside Cuttlefish. Initially absent due to getting separated from Cuttlefish, they saved Agent 8 from a blender in Central Station, but were attacked by the Telephone and briefly hypnotized into battling Agent 8. As of Splatoon 3, they are the captain of the New Squidbeak Splatoon after Cuttlefish's retirement.
  • Agent 4 - The player character in Splatoon 2 entered Octo Canyon and promptly met Marie, who gave them a new Hero Suit and entrusted them with finding the missing Great Zapfish and Callie. They eventually found and defeated DJ Octavio, freeing Callie from her mind control and rescuing the Great Zapfish.
  • New Agent 3 - The player character in Splatoon 3 was recruited from the Splatlands as the new Agent 3 in response to the third disappearance of the Great Zapfish.
  • Agent 3's companion Smallfry was recruited as another agent alongside Agent 3, though it is not given its own Agent title. Instead it is referred to as simply Smallfry or Li'l Buddy.



These characters have all worked for or with the New Squidbeak Splatoon, but are either not full members, or their full membership status is currently unknown.

  • Sheldon - As noted by Marie at Cuttlefish Cabin, Sheldon was invited to be part of the New Squidbeak Splatoon in Splatoon 2, but declined, maintaining that the "technology team" must keep distance from the "troops on the front lines". Nevertheless, he still provided assistance, lending Agent 4 several hero weapons and occasionally commenting and giving advice during missions. During the final boss battle, he was seen driving a flying truck with Marie on top, reminiscent of the trucks used during Splatoon's Splatfests.
  • Agent 8 - The first Octarian affiliate of the New Squidbeak Splatoon. They were knocked into the Deepsea Metro alongside Cap'n Cuttlefish and Agent 3 by an unknown third party. They escaped the depths with the help of Cuttlefish and Off the Hook and later saved Inkopolis from being destroyed by Commander Tartar.
  • Pearl - This Inkling wanted to help out Agent 8 and Cap'n Cuttlefish upon overhearing them in the Deepsea Metro. She did so through giving advice and by cheering, as well as lending Agent 8 some CQ Points when they ran out. She also taught Cap'n Cuttlefish some rapping tips.
  • Marina - This Octoling also helped Agent 8 and Cap'n Cuttlefish during the Octo Expansion, feeling that she wanted to help her fellow Octoling escape. She did so by giving advice and hacking into the metro's systems when needed.
  • DJ Octavio - Despite being the Splatoon's nemesis for most of its existence, he helped the Splatoon during the battle against Mr. Grizz, rescuing Agent 3 and Smallfry when they were knocked off the rocket, and letting Agent 3 pilot his mech to defeat Mr. Grizz.
  • Frye - Frye is an inkling originally introduced as being an antagonist to the New Squidbeak Splatoon, as she and her fellow Deep Cut members go to bandit the "treasure" they believe they have found. Nearing the end of the story mode, she and her bandmates, surprised by Marie's nonchalant will to give them the treasure, praise Marie and help the crew launch Agent 3 into space to battle Mr. Grizz. Frye's contribution is her swarm of eels acting as a ramp for Agent 3 and Smallfry to ride Master Mega on, getting them further into the air.
  • Shiver - Shiver is an octoling originally introduced as being an antagonist to the New Squidbeak Splatoon. She helps the crew launch Agent 3 into space to battle Mr. Grizz. Shiver's contribution is lending Agent 3 Master Mega to ride on to take them into space, launching them into the air.
  • Big Man - Big Man is a ray originally introduced as being an antagonist to the New Squidbeak Splatoon. He helps the crew launch Agent 3 into space to battle Mr. Grizz. Big Man's contribution is giving Agent 3 a space helmet to provide safety in space while battling Grizz.



Splatoon 3


  • If the player talks to Marie in Splatoon 2 for too long before completing the story mode, she might mention that she may have to look for an Agent 5.
