Main or "Fan Fic" Canon?

Do you think this "Side Order" DLC part of the main canon of the Splatoon world, or just a canonical "fan fic" of if Order won the final splatfest of Splatoon 2?

If you don't understand: Main Canon: Part of the story of Splatoon "Fan Fic" Canon/Side Canon: What canonically would have happened if something else happened.

hey. I play Splatoon. Who knew. (talk) 15:02, 9 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I think it's canon. It looks like it has something to do with Team Order, maybe this is a scrapped idea if Team Order won; so it was then released as a DLC. Randomnamehere (talk) 19:44, 9 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The same sort of thing happened in Octo canyon. Marie won Callie vs. Marie, than she was the one who was helping Agent 4...so if Callie had won... the final battle would be Pink(Agent 4) vs. Green(Marie)? Smallfry (talk) 14:44, 18 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This page is for discussion of the article, not speculation on the DLC mode's contents. We will add this information when it is revealed. Yoshifan52 (talk) 20:14, 9 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If you go to (Splatoon™ 3 for Nintendo Switch™ – Expansion Pass - Inkopolis & Side Order DLC) web page and scroll down you will see that they confirmed that we will see what would have happened if order won the spatfest in inkopolis square SquidKid7750 (talk) 19:45, 27 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Personally I don't think that should be taken as such extremely concrete information...that website is, as far as I can tell, the only source for that "confirmation", so it could easily be just be odd phrasing from a marketing guy rather than a clear indication of what the story line will be...I'd seen that sentence on the official website before you kept repeatedly trying to add it to the page, and had spent a good while trying to find any equivalent information from Japanese sources (which I'd consider a bit more reliable since things can be lost in translation/localization) and found nothing even mentioning the idea of it being "what would have happened" on the JP websites/social media, at least as far as I could find. It's still theoretically possible, I suppose, but right now the only evidence seems to only exist in English, and considering that things can get lost in translation even in the games themselves I hesitate to take a random marketing blurb as the definite truth when we have practically no other context...

Yea. I've grown a tad after that time I commented. I think what the creator was trying to say was if we should treat Side Order as a fanon thing or canon thing. If Side Order is if Team Order won... then it should be treated as fanon content, like the manga ( I think the Manga isn't canon ). -Random 14:51, 28 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Manga isn't canon, but Sdodr probably is, because it will unlock Inkopolis Sqare CatVan333 (talk) 15:27, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think its in the main canon. looking at all the new things we've seen since and in the recent Side Order trailer, Side Order is essentially confirmed to be a simulation, so even if it isnt "in reality" I assume that it isnt a AU or "what if" of some kind Ursa Minor (talk) 02:32, 8 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Could the brain picture actually be brain coral? There is a bit of it in the trailer. Ink Me Up! S3 Badge Shell-Out Machine 3M.png S3 Badge Murch 10.png S3 Badge Tableturf Cards 90.png 17:20, 10 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I personally think it has something to do with Marina's Memories, due to the octoling looking (Kind of?) Similar to her, and the entire fact of that octoling looking... lost. Could be a knod to her Childhood in octarian society... though I'm not really sure 🤔 Lil' octoling (talk) 10:14, 14 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

however, 8 is the confirmed player character, in order for that to be true, the DLC would have to be in limbo or something like that XxLordBobxX (talk) 18:13, 14 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Inkling in Characters section

I think the inclusion of a still containing a barely discernible Inkling character is not enough evidence to list them as a character confirmed to appear in the mode. The stills resemble concept art (as the Octoling's design is inconsistent between images), which may not make it to the final product. What do others think?

Agreed. Miss Delibirda (talk) 20:38, 10 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have to agree too. I added to the Inkling with (assumed through trailer footage) but a shadow is not really what you want to rely on in an argument wether there is one or not. The Gallery with picture in question should keep the comment, however if a compromise/consensus is in order.   Perfectionist   (talk) 20:43, 10 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No harm was meant on your part, don't sweat it. I think the image caption I added should be kept, but generally we should watch what amount of speculation is added surrounding the images. Yoshifan52 (talk) 20:51, 10 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I guess you can't really conclude anything about the pointy eared shadow being an Inkling, since throughout the entire trailer, the Octoling is shown with pointy ears and without suction cups. -Random 12:53, 22 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
but on the poster for side order it shows a sillowet of a character that looks like agent 4 Samjam (talk) 16:57, 26 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It's not confirmed yet Olivia (talk) 18:27, 26 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Blackish-dark colored ink?

If you look closely in one of the elevator pics where the octoling is standing outside of the elevator, and the one with the window, you can see some blackish ink seeping out under the elevator door and through the window. Ig this should be mentioned in the article somewhere?

Unknown Octoling

Octoling from the Side Order teaser
Agent 8

Isn't it very highly speculated that this Octoling is most likely Agent 8? Since their connection with Pearl and Marina? SoupnQuackers (talk) 16:13, 13 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes, but it's unconfirmed. Miss Delibirda (talk) 16:13, 13 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
How would 8 get ahold of Pearl's outfit? BobbyBobbyIcon.png(talk) 16:14, 13 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Pearl's out fit is a dress resembling Marie's but in a different colour and that octoling is more like resembling callie's outfit. Also why would she/he get ahold of it? and this is side order and probably has somthing to do with splatoon 2's final fest saying that chaos won and side order might be showing what would have happend if order won and they would not do side chaos because splatsville is called the city of chaos and 8 chose order so that is why 8 is shown here but it might be like agent 3 where there is also a new agent 3 maybe that is a new agent 8 Octogamingpro (talk) 08:28, 14 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

SoupnQuackers:That's not Pearl's outfit, Pearl's outfit is a sleeveless dress

The character highly resembles 8, but until we get official confirmation either from Nintendo or the mode's eventual release, it would be incorrect (and irresponsible) to add that information to the page. Yoshifan52 (talk) 23:31, 13 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Trivia section contents

A) Recently someone added a trivia point claiming the Octoling is "taller" than the player Octolings; I find this to be misleading as the character is wearing a new piece of shoes gear, which for all we know could make all Octolings that wear the boots appear taller, the same way the Neo Octoling Boots (S2) or Pearlescent Kicks (S2 and S3) work in-game. I'd like to remove the trivia point as it's completely unclear how much taller the character is, as well as whether or not their footwear contributes to their supposed taller height, but would appreciate others' input.

If in the end it's decided to keep the information, I think that fact should be added to the description section of the article rather than to trivia.

B) Would it be appropriate to note that the still images that appear briefly in the trailer strongly resemble mid-production concept art? The Octoling's inconsistent skintone from image to image compared to how they appear in-engine (in-game) is the biggest factor towards making me believe this is the case. Yoshifan52 (talk) 23:39, 13 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I think we should remove the trivia point. Many shoes increase the player's height making the trivia farfetched. Odd S2 Splatfest Icon McNuggets.png (Talk) 23:45, 13 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
i did a comparison and while this octoling does appear taller than the tallest possible height for the main playable octoling girl (wearing slamgerine slip ons, which are the tallest shoes in the game), the difference in their posture especially makes it too hard to tell for sure imo, so i think it would be best to remove it for now... Sourguppyworm (talk) 01:10, 14 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Woah amazing comparison! While the model does appear a bit different, there's been quite a few cases where models and stage design was altered between Direct trailers and final releases, so I hesitate to consider this worthy of being noted on the page before the mode's release.

"Fish" at the end

If you look closely at the fish in the end, you see that its not actually fish, but small strips of paper that imitate fish.

OCTOd2 (talk) 14:51, 14 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Nice catch! I can't conclusively tell if the thingies are paper or plastic, but I'll correct the description to not call them outright "fish". Yoshifan52 (talk) 23:21, 15 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The Spikes in One of the Images

As multiple people online have pointed out, the spikes in this image resemble hostile nuclear warning architecture. Should we add this as trivia/point it out somewhere or no? Tons-of-ducks (talk) 17:05, 28 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Themes in the trailor

Through a lot of the photos, themes like elavators and a black substance are a common theme, do they deserve a mention in the article? -Xando (talk) 16:47, 5 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

At this time there isn't enough information to be able to determine what the themes of the mode will be, as the plot is unknown. We cannot conclusively say the trailer suggests the mode will have themes of elevators (or what elevators may symbolize) simply because the teaser showed concept art of elevators; that is speculative. There isn't enough information to go off of. It's best if we wait for official confirmation and/or the official release itself before we draw any such conclusions.
None of the released campaign mode articles note those storylines' themes presently; I don't think it's something worth looking into noting on the wiki given its subjective and analytical nature.
If you would like to add elaboration regarding the assumed areas the images depict to the teaser description section that would be fine, but at this time we have almost no information on plot and themes. Yoshifan52 (talk) 17:49, 5 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Pillars in the 6th image

I disagree that the 6th teaser image is obviously pillars. I thought it was spikes when I first saw it, and a lot of other people also think that they are spikes. I can see the pillars too, but to me it is a like an optical illusion where you can see either.  GX_64 (talk)  09:52, 11 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

IMO it's vague on first glance, but upon detailed inspection they are more like caves or gaps in between white pillars. Considering how the pink roots are drawn on the white structures, they do look like pillars. The pink roots floats where they touch the dark area, which seems to depict a body of water. It looks a bit like black spikes poking out of the body of water, but if you look closely at the water surface where it touches the white structures, the body of water is rendered to be extending inward through the dark space, so they must be holes and not spikes. Also note that none of the pink roots goes behind the "black spikes". Harimaron (talk) 10:17, 11 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Spanish DLC release date

I've seen this once or twice, but apparently on Nintendo/SRL's spanish twitter, a promo image said 2024 under the promo image for side order. Is this true, and if it is, should we put it in the article? -Xando (talk) 18:45, 26 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's a possibility it might be a placeholder or a coincidence, so when the official release date is revealed, we could add that. KPOfficial26 (talk) 18:48, 26 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Two things.

1: Shouldn't we add the sound file for the music that plays during the teaser, at least until Side Order releases and/or the soundtrack is officially released?

2: Recent datamines have revealed that Nintendo accidentally added a reward for completing the DLC; that reward is Inkopolis Square. Since this is actually confirmed, as it was in the game's files, shouldn't we add that to the page?

Sorry if I sound stupid saying this. Moon (talk) 01:19, 14 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

As for point one, we *could* but its probably full of other sounds or effects that detract from listening and therefore is not valuable. As for the second, absolutely not. We do not want to use datamines in that fashion for unreleased material as it is something prone to takedowns—Pikipedia was DMCA'd for similar datamine for future release content and thats not something to risk here either.

Stilt Fish

In the trailer, there is a fish enemy that seems to be in the air, with the help of a black, inky pillar. I saw it at least twice in the trailer, and each time its pillar was at a different height.

Rouguelike/rouguelite?

Well it has been publicly stated that the mode is going to be highly re-playable, and whenever you die you restart from floor 1, after each floor you unlock more stuff, and the gameplay cycle seems to be very similar of the Risk of Rain series, as seen in the most recent trailer. Do note this is speculation and just a theory, though we can assume it to be plausible, if this post gets taken down for speculation, then whats the point of discussion on unreleased content?

Yeah, it's clearly inspired by the roguelike/roguelite genre, even though Nintendo hasn't described it in those exact terms (probably because those sorts of terms are mostly meaningless to casual audiences). But on the subject of wiki editing, it COULD potentially be worth mentioning on the page how the gameplay structure compares to that pre-existing genre.

I don't think that's necessary. I've added a link to the Wikipedia page for roguelikes for people unclear on the definition of the term. Lyichir (talk) 14:57, 17 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
After playing the DLC, I'd say Side Order is more of a roguelite. Roguelike is a genre for video games that follow the exact same rulesets for its game design, while roguelites only follow most of the rules and add new spins to the game, which is something I think is what Side Order is. For example, most roguelikes are harsher with deaths resetting the whole game usually, but roguelites like Side Order here allow players to continue trying or gain upgrades to make runs easier. -

Most of these, if not all, are already linked on the pages they are related to. Please keep talk pages relevant. Also, Google is your friend if you're looking for something the wiki hasn't yet documented. Anemoia Anemoia Sig.png [Talk!] 19:20, 15 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

the Big reward that we may get

So when I was scrolling through Youtube I came across this video saying that we might get Inkopolis square back for a reward for completing side order

We try not to document any info related to rumors, speculation, or datamines of upcoming content. The DLC releases very soon, so we can simply wait and see. :) S3 Icon Headspace.png Driftin Soul [Talk!] 21:03, 21 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
was that form splat channel b/c he said that was announced by nintendo Littlemiscay (talk) 21:12, 21 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I doubt that the reward for completion is getting back the Square. His only evidence for this theory is some Tableturf cards, so it's unlikely. Inkblot (talk) 22:01, 22 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sorry for spoilers, but the completion reward for side order is indeed the square. Since side order has already released this can be documented. OrderSquid38 New Squid.jpg OrderSquid38 *Chat* 22:36, 22 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh. I just thought from just that one video that the rumor was false. Sorry! Inkblot (talk) 22:50, 22 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Well now we know! But yeah, it is better to wait until something is fully confirmed before adding it, instead of speculation, just so we don't get our viewers all excited over something that isn't reel. 😰 (Get it?

Have we found every floor name and modifier?

I'm planning on adding a lot of the new Side Order content to the Inkipedia, and I was wondering if you guys know if you've found every name. - S3 Badge Splatana Stamper 5.png splat.dualies S3 Badge Zipcaster 1200.png ( talk ) 01:57, 23 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

DLC name translation in Spanish

"Cara" in the name of the DLC means "Side". "Face" is a literal translation that doesn't make sense, in this context (I know because I'm from Spain). I post this here as it doesn't let me edit the page to correct it. Timeman (talk) 08:04, 23 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Fact for trivia

I can't edit the article(makes sense) so I'll put this here for other people to add: Side order is the first dlc to have the dialogue change after you beat the final boss multiple times

That's it, if you don't believe me take a look for yourself and play some side order or watch some gameplay videos, peace! NineSquids9 (talk) 08:55, 24 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This is not completely true since the dialogue for fighting Callie and Octavio in Splatoon 2 also changed on refights. But unlike Side Order, that dialogue only changed once, whereas the dialogue for Smollusk encounters changes with each additional weapon. Lyichir (talk) 16:48, 24 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
i forgor to word it more clear, what i meant was that after you beat it more than like 2 times the dialogue still changes NineSquids9 (talk) 07:49, 25 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
