Specs is a character from the Splatoon manga, and one of the four members of Team Blue.

Appearance

In his debut appearance, he wore the Retro Specs, Vintage Check Shirt, and White Kicks as well as wielding the Inkbrush. Starting with Volume Three, he maintains his Retro Specs but wears a Baby-Jelly Shirt & Tie and a pair of Smoky Wingtips. He then uses the Octobrush in addition to a few other brushes, such as when he wielded the Inkbrush Nouveau brush against Emperor. In the Octo Expansion escape chapter of the manga, he is seen using an Undercover Brella, hinting that Specs may be skilled in more than one weapon class. His normal appearance consists of his Retro Specs, Shirt & Tie and Plum Casuals.

Personality

Specs is almost always seen with a serious demeanor at all times. He is shown to be very anxious, which he tries to conceal to the best of his ability. Specs is shown to have a wide array of knowledge regarding Turf Wars and various weapons, but he gets upset when others do not listen to the advice he gives. Like Headphones, Specs is shown to dislike the random shenanigans that Goggles gets himself into, like getting naked in public and pulling down the pants of various Inklings.

Relationships

Specs is shown to mostly get along with his teammates until Goggles or Bobble Hat goof off. He does not like when people think that Goggles is the leader of the team

Trivia

  • Specs is the actual leader of Team Blue despite Goggles being the mascot of the manga.
  • In the bonus manga in Volume 3, it is shown that Specs is presumably near-sighted when the lenses of his glasses get broken by Bobble Hat on purpose. He also confirms it in the bonus manga for Volume 7.
  • It is possible that Specs is jealous of Gloves, as when Gloves often gets attention, Specs can be seen, flustered, in the background.
