Ninja Squid is an ability in Splatoon and Splatoon 2.

Users of Ninja Squid do not leave ripples while swimming in ink on non-wall surfaces (it does not hide ripples when swimming on 'wall' surfaces). The slight indents left in ink when swimming through it still appear. Swim speed is reduced.

Tactics

Ninja Squid is used by players who want to move around the battlefield undetected. Since there are no ripples for enemies to spot while the player swims, they can sneak to a better vantage point or escape a dangerous situations. However, slight indents left in ink can be seen, allowing very perceptive players to still take notice of the player's presence.

Ninja squid also reduces swim speed; this effect can be counteracted using S2 Ability Swim Speed Up.png Swim Speed Up. The effects of Ninja Squid can be simulated by swimming more slowly, as ripples are only produced when swimming at faster than a certain speed.
