This article is about the occurrence in the Splatoon series. For other things referred to as Splat, see Splat (disambiguation).

A splat is an event that occurs in the Splatoon series whenever the health points of a player, Octarian, or Salmonid reach zero.


Upon being splatted, the player will explode in enemy ink while their ghost flies upward. Any player carrying clams in Clam Blitz or the Rainmaker in Rainmaker will drop those upon being splatted. After being splatted, the player will be unable to perform any action (except looking at the map and using signals if playing a battle) until they respawn. If a player is splatted, the player who splatted them will receive a notification and an icon will appear over the place that the player was splatted and it will remain there for a few seconds. In Splatoon 2, if a player assists the splatter (meaning that they dealt damage before the opponent could completely heal but did not land the final shot) then they will get no notification and a different icon will appear above the place that their opponent was splatted. The explosion that the splatted player creates can deal some damage to any of their teammates that are standing close enough, which could possibly splat them as well if their damage threshold is reached. In the single-player modes and Salmon Run, Octarians and Salmonids will always give the player who splatted them Power Eggs. Along with dropping power eggs, Boss Salmonids and certain Octarians will drop Golden Eggs and Keys respectively. Octarian bosses leave Zapfishes behind when splatted, and DJ Octavio drops the Great Zapfish.
