Shelly and Donny are the weapons dealers for Ammo Knights in Inkopolis Plaza and Inkopolis Square in Splatoon 3: Expansion Pass.

When Wave 1 of Splatoon 3: Expansion Pass was released, Shelly and Donny ran the Ammo Knights in Inkopolis Plaza together. Following the release of Side Order, regardless of whether the player has completed it or not, Donny has moved to the Ammo Knights of Inkopolis Square, leaving Shelly to run the Inkopolis Plaza branch alone.

Appearance

Shelly and Donny resemble Sheldon, but are noticeably smaller and more infantile-looking. Notably, their shells are partially translucent, and as Triops, their tails are forked. They have large, round, conjoined eyes, and wear yellow scout uniforms.

Personality and traits

Shelly and Donny are said to look up to Sheldon and seem to behave rather similarly to him, with the majority of Shelly's dialogue being direct or near-direct quotes of Sheldon's dialogue. Both of them seem to have some degree of speech impediments, with Shelly occasionally struggling to pronounce words, and Donny consistently speaking with rhotacism and lambdacism (meaning a difficulty pronouncing "R" and "L" sounds, respectively). These speech impediments are likely due to the fact that they are young children. Shelly is the more talkative of the two, being the one to deliver most of their shop dialogue, with Donny only chiming in occasionally after Shelly says something.

While their shop dialogue in English is mostly the same as or derivative of Sheldon's, Shelly does have unique dialogue as an opponent in the Tableturf Battle Dojo, showing a cheerful and somewhat excitable personality. Donny does not speak in the Tableturf Battle Dojo, but does stand next to Shelly, apparently watching the game.

Shelly and Donny are similar to Timmy and Tommy from the Animal Crossing series, both being duos of visually identical children who are shopkeepers and apprentices of an older shopkeeper character that they resemble. Shelly and Donny's names are also based on Timmy and Tommy's names.

When a player below level 2 enters the shop: Shelly:
"Hello, he— Oh my. Is that truly the only weapon in your puzz-ess-shun? I would love to talk your tentacles off about the stuff I've got in stock. But I'm not sure you can handle the sheer fire...firepower at lowly level 1. Listen. I've got a plan. And it will work. Go to the lobby and play some Regular Battles. Get to...let's say... level 2. Then come back and see me!"
Donny:
"Good wuck!"
When a player of level 2 or above enters the shop for the first time: Shelly:
"Hello, hello! Let me guess—you're looking for some new weapons? You've come to...to the right place! Our weapons come in sets— a main weapon on , a sub weapon on , and...oh yeah! A special weapon! Sound...com-pluh-kay-ted? Don't fret! You can always press to try out our products before buying. You can get our store's weapons in... in exchange for Sheldon LicensesSheldon Licenses! You can get Sheldon LicensesSheldon Licenses by battling and...leveling up! Or by using a weapon a lot!"
Donny:
"Get wicenses."
When a player of level 2 or above with data from Splatoon 2 transferred enters the shop for the first time: Shelly:
"Hello, hello! Let me guess—you're looking for some new weapons? You've come to...to the right place! Wuh-woh... What is THAT?! I didn't know you were a collector of vint-uj weapons! It's fas-sin-nate-ing, but you'll need something far fresher. Of...of course, before you walk out of here with something shiny and new, you'll, uh...you'll need the correct Sheldon LicensesSheldon License, yes? And you can get Sheldon LicensesSheldon Licenses by battling and...and leveling up. Or even just developing your skills by using a part-ick-yular weapon a lot. AH! You surprised me yet again. You already have at least one...one Gold Sheldon LicensesGold Sheldon License?! You ARE a true collector! In that case, I'm pleased to inform you that...that you can unlock a larger selection than usual. Right off the bat. Con-gratoo-lashuns!"
Donny:
"Unwock dem."
When entering the shop without an internet connection: Shelly:
"Hello, he— Oh... You seem to be offline. Come back when you're cuh-neck-ted to the internet. You can get connected by...by visiting the lobby!"
Donny:
"The wobby!"
When entering the shop: Shelly:
"Hello, hello! What are you in the market for today?"
Donny:
"Hewwo, hewwo!"
When new weapons are added: Shelly:
  • "I'm pleased to report that my already wide sell-ek-shun has widened further yet. Take a look. I insist!"
  • "Aha! You're ready to wield the...the <weapon>!"
  • "And that's not all! You're also ready for the <weapon>!"

"He said dat."
When selecting a weapon at or below a player's level: Shelly:
"Get this one?"
When selecting a weapon at or below a player's level with Golden Sheldon Licenses: Shelly:
"Oh, this is un-for-tuna. You don't have any Sheldon LicensesSheldon Licenses right now. You do have 1 Gold Sheldon LicensesGold Sheldon License. And I can accept that. But... It seems like it would be a waste. Are you sure you want to use your Gold Sheldon LicensesGold Sheldon License on that?"
When hovering over a weapon above a player's level: Shelly:
"Price: 1 Sheldon Licenses @ Lv. <number>"
When selecting a weapon above a player's level: Shelly:
"At your cur...current level, I think you're still a little too green to handle that weapon. But! If you really, really must have it right now, you can exchange 3 Sheldon LicensesSheldon Licenses for it!"
When selecting a weapon above a player's level with Golden Sheldon Licenses: Shelly:
"At your cur...current level, I think you're still a little too green to handle that weapon. But! If you really, really must have it right now, you can exchange 1 Gold Sheldon LicensesGold Sheldon License for it!"
After a weapon is bought: Shelly:
"Equip it?"

"Wondering how many Gold Sheldon LicensesGold Sheldon Licenses you still have? Let me just look it up... Ah! You have <number> left."

"And with that, you've used your last Gold Sheldon LicensesGold Sheldon License!"
Donny:
"Aww gone!"

"I admire your dev...dev-o-shun, but you already have that weapon!"
Donny:
"You got it aweady."
When attempting to buy a weapon without Sheldon Licences: Shelly:
"I'm afraid you're a bit lacking in the license dee-part-meant. We can't part with any of Sheldon's wares for less than they're worth!"
Donny:
"Sowwy..."
When purchasing last weapon available: Shelly:
"Wow! You've man-a...man-idge... You got all the weapons! Congratulations, fellow artillery en-thooos-ist! If you also got toooooo many Sheldon LicensesSheldon Lie-senses, trade 'em in for Shell-Out Tokens at the Shell-Out ma-sheen in the lobby!"
Donny:
"Roll da dice."
When deciding to test a weapon: Shelly:
"Give it a whirl?"
When entering the shop after the release of Side Order: Shelly:
"Huh? You wanna know where Donny went? Don's gone. He's running another lo...lo-cay-shun somewhere else. But don't worry! I can take care of whatever you need aaall by myself!"

When a player below level 2 enters the shop: Krabbie:
"Hallo, ha... O, jee. Is... Is dat echt het enige wapen dat u heeft? Ik wil u heel graag alles vertellen over al de leuke dingetjes die hier in de winkel liggen, maar, eh... ik weet niet of u dat wel snapt, op niveau 1... Maar wat ik u wel kan vertellen: ga naar de lobby en speel wat standaardgevechten. Tot u op niveau 2 zit! Gelukkig duurt dat meestal niet zo lang!"
(Hello, he... Oh, gee. Is... Is that really the only weapon you have? I'd love to tell you all about all the fun little things that are here in the store, but, um... I don't know if you'll get it, on level 1... But what I do can tell you: go to the lobby and play some regular battles. Until you get to level 2! Luckily, that usually doesn't take that long!)

"Hallo, hallo! O! U bent vast op zoek naar iets. Hopelijk naar wapens? Want die hebben we hier namelijk. Wauw, wat hebt u DAAR?! Verzamelt u an-antie... ouwe wapens? Dat lijkt me een leuke hobby, maar misschien wilt u iets versers voor op het slagveld? Maar voor u zo'n mooi, nieuw wapen mag meenemen, moet u wel de juiste Sheldon LicensesKrabbert-vergunnie hebben, oké? U krijgt Sheldon LicensesKrabbert-vergunnie... nings... door te vechten en uw niveau te verbeteren. Of door zo vaak met een wapen te vechten dat u daar heel goed mee bent. Oho!
