Pearl's ear size

So, in the final boss of Octo Expansion, when Pearl's special is ready, you can see her ears and they are shown to be small. However, in the promo art for the Pulp vs. No Pulp Splatfest, Pearl's ears are shown to be regular sized; the same size as the Inklings' ears. B ron 3000 backup (talk) 20:27, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

If you look closely during a Splatfest when Pearl's performing, her ears are the same size so her ears are just small. Argus 17:54, July 26 2018

Pearl's Full Japanese Name

Pearl's page currently has that one species of rockfish as the meaning for Pearl's last name, Houzuki, but I'm pretty sure that it actually comes from "Daio- Houzuki Ika", the Colossal Squid. The "daio-" part in the name for colossal squid means "great/giant king", which matches with her given name Hime also meaning princess. Additionally, the fact that her last name comes from Colossal Squid and her given name comes from the Northen Pygmy Squid makes for an ironic contrast, with her family name being a huge squid and her given name being a tiny squid.

Also, I think it's funny that if you take the two species her Japnese name is based on, you get "Colossal Pygmy", which is basically the squid version of "Biggie Smalls", the person her Octo Expansion outfit was based on. Interesting trivia. RobotRad (talk) 01:39, 28 July 2018 (UTC)

Yeah, I don't really see why not. Why don't you add it with your own wording and see is anyone has any objection? --Raltseye prata med mej 15:25, 28 July 2018 (UTC)
I'm not entirely sure myself how intentional the supposed references to Biggie and Tupac are. I know there is one stage in Octo Expansion that at least in the North American English IS an intentional reference to All Eyez on Me, but this may have just been added by Nintendo Treehouse, who tend to add a lot of memes into their translations of Splatoon and other series from what I've noticed (eg. Sheldon's "RELEASE THE KRAKEN" in Splatoon 1). It should be noted in the trivia section, but we should be careful of assigning too much intent to the producers and developers of the game themselves. Just my opinion. Octo-maker71 (talk) 00:47, 1 October 2018 (UTC)

Why's Pearl's page protected from being edited but Marina's isn't?

It seems odd, like whoever's running Inkipedia is extremely biased about Pearl.

I would say it's just a mistake, also I don't believe there is one person "running" Inkipedia- it's a whole bunch of volunteers/Splatoon lovers that contribute. There are mods though :P Splattersky (talk) 04:13, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

Pearl's Russian name origin

Pearl's name "Перловка" might also be a play on her English name "Pearl" ("Перл") and a very popular Russian porridge, which is commonly reffered to as "Перловка".

Should Pearl and Marina’s individual pages have their own quotes?

Since the Off the Hook page already uses their catchphrase, I feel like repeating that for Pearl’s and Marina’s individual pages is a bit strange, and, well... repetitive. A quote of their own would look a lot nicer and more personal, IMO. I’m happy to find a quote from Splatfest dialogue or the Octo Expansion for both of them. ^^ 〜SplatterskytalkS2 Icon Pearl 2.png

I know that Callie and Marie both still have “Staaaay fresh!” as their page quote, as does the general Squid Sisters page, but you're right - it may be cooler for them to have more personal quotes on their own pages. I like that idea, so I could try and find some contenders too! GloverMist (talk) 08:09, 23 June 2019 (UTC)
OK, sweet! Here’s some I found for Pearl:
  • “Y’all know what time it is!” from Inkopolis News
  • “Boo-YAAAAAAHHHHHH!” from the Octo Expansion ending (that’s the correct number of letters, btw)
  • “My deets? I’m short and sweet! I spit that fire make posers perspire! Step to my game? I’ll bring the pain. I’m never shook because I’m OFF THE HOOK!” (My personal favourite, but we can shorten it if we need to)
Would any of them be suitable? 〜SplatterskytalkS2 Icon Pearl 2.png
Ooh, those are some good ones! Her battle cry is my favourite. Turns out it's hard to choose individual quotes when they're so often responding to each other! I also found "Never underestimate the Pearl. aka MC Reverse Psychology, aka MC Danger Noodle", but that's in text speak, so may not be quite as fitting. GloverMist (talk) 10:39, 23 June 2019 (UTC)
That one’s really good too! Though it could sound a little odd out of context. Should we go with the battle cry for now? 〜SplatterskytalkS2 Icon Pearl 2.png
Unless anyone else has any objections, I'd say go for it. It's a plot-important moment that sums up her personality well. GloverMist (talk) 06:19, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
Awesome! I’ll add it now! ^^ 〜SplatterskytalkS2 Icon Pearl 2.png
