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 Swim Speed Up 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.

Mutual exclusivity

This ability is found as the main ability only on clothing, so other abilities found only on shoes are mutually exclusive with it; in other words players cannot have them together. These abilities are Cold Blooded Cold Blooded, Recon Recon, and Haunt Haunt. In addition, since wearing the S Gear Clothing Splatfest Tee.png Splatfest Tee is mandatory during a Splatfest, these abilities cannot be used for the duration of those events.
