Shifty Station is the title given to a series of multiplayer stages in Splatoon 2. The stages were originally only available during Splatfests, but were made available in Private Battles starting with Version 5.0.0. Only one Shifty Station appeared per Splatfest, except for Chaos vs. Order and Super Mushroom vs. Super Star.

Shifty Stations typically either have parts of the stage moving around and/or Octo Canyon stage gimmicks, such as Ink Cannons and Grapplinks. The only stages that are exceptions to this rule are Sweet Valley Tentacles, The Splat in our Zones, and MC.Princess Diaries. Sweet Valley Tentacles uses a unique gimmick, The Splat in our Zones uses free Splat Zones, and MC.Princess Diaries uses hyperbombs from the Octo Expansion as well as Pearl's Princess Cannon.
