The Splatsville Great Eight, also known as The Best 8, are eight strong Splatlandians from Splatoon 3: Splatlands. It consists of five Inklings and three Octolings. The four strongest are members of New Order of Splatlands.



Main article: Wireglasses

Wireglasses is the leader of New Order of Splatlands, as well as the leader of Splatsville Great Eight. He is competitive like the rest of the New Order of Splatlands and Rider, he tends to think highly of himself according to his quote "I am Splatsville" where he sees himself as the highest being in Splatsville.


Main article: Ocho

Ocho is second-in-command of the team, he previously was the one to black label the members of Splatsville Great Eight if they ever lost a battle, but after losing to Team Blue, he agreed to stop black labeling. He is shown to be very standoffish and cruel. Because he is competitive, he tends to anger quickly in battle, and even after battling is still resentful.


Main article: Braid

Despite looking forward to playing Turf Wars and the rumors circulating about her skill claiming that she was one of Splatsville Great Eight, Braid never actually participated in real battles until the events of Chapter 66 and practiced entirely on her own, due to her being very shy and prone to freezing up under pressure. When she expresses those traits, she smiles awkwardly, trembles, and repeats the phrase "Bo", "Po", or "Pyo". She acts as an unofficial member of Team Blue.

Horn Helmet

Main article: Horn Helmet

Horn Helmet is portrayed as being tomboyish, as her Japanese dialogue often ending her sentences in masculine particles. She seems to be fooled easily, as when she hears a rumor about Braid being strong, she immediately confronts her without any proof of Braid's strength.


Main article: Barreleye

Barreleye is portrayed as somewhat air-headed, he does not think before he speaks and often trails off during his sentences. However, his air-headed personality does not mean he is completely stupid, as he can strategize at certain times. Barreleye is also kind-hearted, as he manages to give Braid advice on being more confident.


Main article: Shellmet

At first glance, Shellmet is seen as rude, as she calls Team Blue stupid several time, this might imply she tends to look down on people. However, Shellmet is not heartless, as she offers to help Team Blue train for the upcoming fight with Wireglasses anyway of her beliefs and believes Team Blue can defeat him.

8 Bit

Main article: 8 Bit

8 Bit is a ruthless and tough fighter. Similar to Ocho, she gets angry quickly if the battle does not play in her favor. She tends to call her teammates "slackers" if they are caught not working, even with this, she is not entirely mean spirited. After losing to Team Blue, 8 Bit praises her team for trying their best throughout the fight.


Main article: Shady

Shady presents himself as serious when he first meets Team Blue. However, as the battle progresses Shady allows himself to become distracted by a question Goggles asks. He then refuses to play the battle until he can figure out the answer, forcing his teammates to help him solve the question.
