Though known primarily for their sneakers, Takoroka decks out their fans in the sportiest looks of the season! Takoroka has found a following among young squids who aren’t quite feeling any ol’ gear – and can make any Inkling feel like singing Ole, Ole, Ole in no time!

Takoroka (Japanese: ヤコ Yako) is a brand within Splatoon and Splatoon 2. Takoroka gear has a 5x chance of rolling the S2 Ability Special Charge Up.png Special Charge Up ability and a 1/2x chance of rolling S Ability Special Duration Up.png Special Duration Up and in Splatoon 2 a 1/2x chance of rolling S2 Ability Special Power Up.png Special Power Up.

Takoroka's theme appears to be clothing for active, fit Inklings. This can be by some of their clothing, like modern-style running shoes, a vector patterned shirt and a mesh cap for blocking sun. However, they also produce sports clothing, such as rugby shirts and studded soccer shoes.

According to the SplatoonJP Twitter, Takoroka mainly produces many pairs of shoes, and also professional sportswear like rugby shirts and spiked shoes. It's popular among young Inklings who are particular about their attire.[2]
