Inkling Squid takes his humanoid form.

By putting the Inkling Boy SMM Inkling Boy.png, Inkling Girl SMM Inkling Girl.png, or Inkling Squid SMM Inkling Squid.png amiibo on the Wii U GamePad, players will get the respective costumes for Mario to use. These can also be unlocked randomly by completing the 100 Mario Challenge. When wearing any of the three costumes, there are some new Splatoon-themed features and sounds:

  • Level clear music for Octo Valley will play upon reaching the goal pole.
  • When falling into a pit, the sound effect for being splatted will play.
  • The Inkling Girl and Inkling Boy can take their squid forms by crouching, accompanied by the usual squishy sound. Underwater, they will both be in squid form by default. The Inkling Squid can assume humanoid form by holding up on Button1 DPad.png, and is revealed to be a dark-skinned male with a Splat Roller, the Studio Headphones, and the White Layered LS. He cannot move while doing this, however.

On July 8th, 2016, an event course for the Callie and Marie costumes went live called Squid Sisters Vs Bloopers. In the course, the player must choose between the left door to unlock Callie and the right door for Marie. The player must complete an underwater section with bloopers, before joining at the final part, which is the same for both doors. Beating the path the player chose, unlocks the respective costume and replaying the other path allows the player to unlock the other costume respectively. The course is filled with SquidForce Logos, a squid is made out of coins and two item boxes and a Firefin logo is placed at the end. Their respective amiibo will also unlock their costumes. They share the same features as the other Splatoon Mystery Mushroom costumes, with some minor differences:

  • This is the first time that either can be seen going into squid form, their pupils and eye makeup separating them from other Inklings. This also confirms that their primary ink colors are not black and gray, respectively.
  • Holding up on Button1 DPad.png will have them do their "Stay Fresh" greeting.
  • The Final Results Splatfest music will play upon reaching the goal pole.

Some of these badges also make a cameo on the title screen. Over time, more Splatoon-themed badges were put in the arcade's rotation of crane machines in North America and Europe.
