Ninja Squid is an ability in Splatoon and Splatoon 2.

Users of Ninja Squid leave do not leave ripples while swimming in ink on horizontal surfaces and ramps. However, swim speed is slowed by approximately 10%, though this effect can be nullified with one main and two sub abilities of S Ability Swim Speed Up.png Swim Speed Up. This ability does not affect swimming on a vertical surfaces, so ripples will still be visible when swimming up walls. The slight indents left in ink by swimming through it are likewise not hidden, allowing very perceptive enemies to still take notice of the player's presence. Ninja Squid is restricted to clothing as a main ability and cannot be rolled as a sub ability.

Ninja Squid is used by players who want to move around the battlefield undetected. Because there are no ripples for enemies to spot while the player swims, they can sneak to a better vantage point or escape a dangerous enemy.

Splatoon

The effects of Ninja Squid can be simulated simply by swimming more slowly, as ripples are only produced when swimming at high speed.
