Splatanas are sword-like weapons that send blades of ink flying with each swing of the weapon, which is done by pressing the button. Swings after holding the button would become a charged slash. Regular slashes fire a horizontal projectile, while charged slashes use a vertical one.
The splatana class was first announced in the Splatoon 3 Direct.
List of splatanas
Note: The series are arranged by the order of their respective Tableturf Battle cards.
|A heavier Splatana compared to the standard. It has a slower rate of fire, but its ink projectiles are wider, travel further, and deal more damage.||Splatana Stamper||✓|
|The standard Splatana. When the button is tapped, it performs a quick slash that fires a fast-moving ink-trailing projectile. When charged up, it performs a stronger vertical slash. If the charge is released while moving forward, the user will lunge forward a short distance before firing.||Splatana Wiper||✓|

|“||SRL back and fully recovered from our wild day of tweeting with new research on splatana-type weapons. These swordlike implements can fire a horizontal slash of ink quickly or charge up to fire a powerful vertical blast. You can use both moves to slice and dice the competition!||”|
