  • Cat/Dog Fiend
  • Cat/Dog Defender
  • Cat/Dog Champion
  • Cat/Dog King/Queen

In our Splatfest, our stages were Urchin Underpass, Walleye Warehouse, and Kelp Dome. I live in Canada. I'm not sure if I can find a translation for the Japanese Splatfest, but I do have the North American Tiers.

In Splatfest, our stages were Urchin Underpass, Walleye Warehouse and Port Mackerel. I'm in Australia so I'm currently doing the EU/AU one. Pinkolol16 (talk) 10:15, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

Super Sea Snails

Aren't the number of sea snails given depending on what the team won?
2 extra sea snails for the team with the highest number of votes
3 extra sea snails for the team with the highest win percentage
If I recall the end results from the last Splatfest correctly.

japan next splatfest

japan splatfest website

Nintendo japan via twitter and the game official japanese website already announced its next splatfest

is sponsored by KIRIN with two of its drinks as team options

Since there was a talk topic about this i just wanted to edit this one. What about the new splatfest in japan that they posted about today? it is held from August 22 at 12:00 - August 23 at 12:00. The two teams are Grasshopper and Ants I think but i would like to see what others think about it first before it should be added to the "upcoming events section" Zomgitssoup (talk) 03:08, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

Everybody Votes Channel

Some of the Splatfest themes are recycled from Everybody Votes Channel. Notably, North America's first Splatfest theme (Cat vs. Dog) is also the first global poll in that channel, "Do you prefer dogs or cats?". To add to that, Europe/Oceania's second Splatfest theme (Eating vs. Sleeping) is also one of the first three regional polls in that channel, "Which do you prefer? -Eating -Sleeping". Japan's second Splatfest theme (Maruchan Red Fox Udon vs. Green Tanuki Soba) is also the first Japanese poll in that channel, "Which do you like, udon or soba?"

Did you see the coincidence? InfiniteMusume (talk) 13:40, 19 July 2015 (UTC)

Ink colours for marshmellows vs hotdogs was confirmed by nwplayer as ce334fff 008006ff ffe80aff (they're hexes) so the ink might have to be changed Pinkolol16 (talk) 08:13, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

Can anyone add Castilian Spanish (NOE) name?

Its name is "Festival temático" (Thematic Festival) and also is referred as "Festival".

New European Titles

Ok our splatfest titles in Europe are the same as America's now, Fanboy/girl, Fiend, Defender, Champion and King/Queen, I just spent hours levelling up seeing them all, what will we do? Pinkolol16 (talk) 03:44, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

Here's a Miiverse link where some titles can be seen. Aside from the English matching the US, I see a French screenshot with the title "Experte en Pôle Nord". --Christopher Fritz (talk) 05:23, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

NOE North Pole/South Pole Splatfest Titles

Split up the table/gallery

We're only going to get more Splatfests, and with 3 at a time, the table is gonna become really cluttered really quick. (In my opinion, it's already very cluttered.) I suggest splitting the list of Splatfests table, and the gallery, like this:

North America
Options Start Winner Loser
Option Score Pop. Win Option Score Pop. Win
  Cats   Dogs 2015-07-04 00:00 PT Dogs 160 62% 49% Cats 140 38% 51%

North America
Europe and Oceania

So yeah. I made an account to share this, was wondering what everyone else thinks. ~ Inker (talk) 18:51, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

  • I can't approve this since I have no power over it, but this sounds great!

Hopefully this gets approved!

--Sigma (talk) 23:52, 9 August 2015 (UTC)Sigma

I really like how that looks, too; it's a lot more organized and professional-looking. Nice work, there! SilverStarlight (talk) 23:58, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
I agree and also love this idea. Also regardless of whether we split the table up like this, we should also make the tables collapsable so that the tables don't take up a huge chunk of the page when they get too big. Jer455 (talk) 01:01, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
I'll go ahead and put this into the Splatfest page right now. - Jer455 (talk) 23:47, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

New Japanese Splatfest announced

Go to Japan's Splatoon Twitter page and you will see a new Splatfest has been announced! It's being held on August 22nd, and the theme is "Grasshopper vs. Ali". (At least that's what the translation said.) If someone could put that up on the upcoming Splatfests that'd be awesome!

--Sigma (talk) 03:15, 15 August 2015 (UTC)Sigma

Grasshopper vs Ant. Miiverse screenshot. Interesting that they used a western story, rather than something Japanese (like monkey vs crab). --Christopher Fritz (talk) 06:17, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

Japanese splatfest stages

I can't edit the page because I'm not autoconfirmed, but can someone add these? Awesomelink234 (talk) 12:53, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

Last Japan Splatfest

Grasshoppers won 61% of the popularity and 53% of the wins. Ants won 39% and 47% of the wins. So the results were 273 for Grasshoppers and 227 for Ants. Callie wins. I tried putting it into the finished infobox but it failed. Elite Octoling (talk) 14:49, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

Error in Reward Tiers

The second paragraph after the Reward tiers table still states "Win percentage is worth double the value of popularity." Of course, since the August update it's been quadruple.

Also, didn't the table used to show the EXP required for each rank, as well as cumulative frequency? When/why did that go?

GFJmember (talk) 12:48, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

Japanese Splatfest

It seems as Japan's fifth Splatfest is around the corner. If you don't believe me, check out Japan's Splatoon webpage. It looks like Clams vs. Fans, but sadly I can't speak Japanese. If anybody could translate that'd be great, if not, we'll have to wait for Splatoon JP's Twitter page to upload info about it.

--Sigma talk 02:32, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

It appears to be Boke vs. Tsukkomi. That's from Japanese comedy where the Boke role is basically like the funny man and the Tsukkomi is the sane man. The tsukkomi usually hit the boke on the head with a fan. A well-known example is the Japanese comedy group Downtown. Also here's the Splatfest on the Japanese Twitter page if anyone can fully translate it: [1] Herobrine (talk) 04:02, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

My bad. The translation said Blur, not Boke. But I can most definitely change the name from Blur to Boke. Thank you for the info. --Sigma talk 04:16, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

On Nintendo News' Twitter page, they made a tweet about the upcoming Japanese Splatfest:

But anyways, they called it Funny vs. Straight. Should we change Boke vs. Tsukkomi to that or should we keep it the same as it is? --Sigma talk 19:03, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

I think it's a good idea to change it. It'll be a little easier to understand for users that aren't into Japanese comedy. I think it should be called Funny Man and Straight Man because I noticed some users on Twitter were confused by it simply being called Funny vs. Straight. What do you think of that? --Herobrine (talk) 06:18, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

I'd like that. Want me to make the change?

--Sigma talk 11:35, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Sure, if you can! --Herobrine (talk) 12:05, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

The official Japanese Twitter just posted an image of the tees for their current Splatfest. --Herobrine (talk) 03:28, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

Already taken care of. --Sigma talk 03:50, 11 September 2015 (UTC)


I noticed that this page only has the Marshmallow vs. Hot Dog announcement. If you guys would like, I could add all of the ones in English and have a translator do the Japanese ones, or I could just leave it be. --Sigma talk 20:21, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Dive in dude: it's a wiki that's editable by everyone :) Kjhf Talk Contribs 20:23, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Alright! I won't disappoint! --Sigma talk 20:24, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Could anyone see if they can translate the announcements for the Japanese Splatfests? For the sixth time, I'm going to try to edit this so that somebody may see this and at least respond. If anybody COULD translate the announcements and the results for the Japanese Splatfests, that would be excellent. Here are some links:

Rice versus Bread announcement:

Udon versus Soba announcement:

Lemon Tea versus Milk Tea announcement:

Grasshopper versus Ant announcement:

Boke versus Tsukkomi announcement:

Rice versus Bread results:

Udon versus Soba results:

Lemon Tea versus Milk Tea results:

Grasshopper versus Ant results:

  • If you're going to add all these quotes, make sure it uses the same template that we have for Squid Sisters Quotes on inividiual stages (e.g. Arowana Mall's Quotes). Or at least make them collapsible. ~CreatorGX (Talk) 16:17, 9 September 2015 (UTC)
  • I made Japan Splatfest quotes been used the template. As a side effect, originally Japanese sentences are written on. I think it gets easier to make these rough translations better.--Azoth (talk) 03:38, 10 September 2015 (UTC)

I have the Art vs. Science Results quotes on YouTube: --MetalSmasher86 (talk)

King Images

Could anybody help me find images of somebody reaching King rank (Kinda like GuyPerfect does) for both Team Cat and Team Marshmallow? If any of you guys could that would be awesome. Another thing is, I've seen those kind of images on YouTube, but sadly it won't let me freeze the video and copy and paste the frozen image. --Sigma talk 13:04, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

  1. Set video quality to the highest possible
  2. Make it full-screen
  3. Take a screenshot
  4. Crop out what you don't need
And you got yourself an image! --Bzeep! talk 13:34, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

How do I take a screenshot of it on a computer? --Sigma talk 13:35, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

Erm. If you're on Mac, it's command+shift+3, and a .PNG will show up on your desktop. If you're on Windows, it's ctrl+prtsc, and then you paste it into whatever program you want to edit it in. --Bzeep! talk 13:39, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

Okay, I've pasted it on Google Slides and cropped it to my liking. How do I get it on Inkipedia now? It won't let me copy a URL. --Sigma talk 13:55, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

Hello? Bzeep? --Sigma talk 15:02, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

Lol it's okay dude, I just had to go for a few hours. Look, I made a lil thing just for you. :y --Bzeep! talk 17:42, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

Got it. Thanks, Bzeep. I'll let you know if I have any issues with it. --Sigma talk 17:50, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

Quote Faces

Do we have an face image of Callie and Marie's "Stay Fresh" face? If so what is the code name for it? --Sigma talk 22:34, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

Also, can somebody fix my mistakes? --Sigma talk 22:59, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
Oh you're right, we don't have the "stay fresh" faces. I.. didn't even notice until now. Where's that template...?
Ey, and it looks like Az cleaned up the collapsible stuff for ya.

New European Splatfest is Cats vs Dogs


I don't know if we should use the file we already have or upload a new one with "Europe" in the filename, seeing it's the first time one region has the exact same Splatfest as another region's previous one.
Arend (talk) 12:20, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

I am completely and utterly enraged by this.
EUROPE IS DOING SPLATFEST W R O N G --Sigma talk 12:37, 10 October 2015 (UTC)
The image posted on the Splatoon Facebook page is the same as the one from the US. So we should reuse it. – EspyoT 12:47, 10 October 2015 (UTC)
They didn't even bother to draw a new picture... 😓 --Bzeep! talk 13:00, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

I know right, Bzeep? This needs to be changed. Nintendo tried to make their fans happy, but really, they made it much worse. --Sigma talk 13:11, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

I am actually getting really tired of this "OMG EUROPE STOLE A THEME! SALT LEVELS INCREASE" stuff, no seriously, I am.

They did not steal the theme, they just reused it (even if everything's copied). I was actually going to enjoy it, but nope, there's salt in the air. Can we just give Europe a break? All I've been seeing the last hour is "Europe are terrible Splatfest makers", and I'm slowly thinking of moving out of this fandom. Elite Octoling (talk) 13:34, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

I don't see why NOE couldn't have asked NOA for some help on coming up with a Splatfest theme. --Sigma talk 14:10, 10 October 2015 (UTC)
I bet Japan could copy Cats vs Dogs and it wouldn't even matter. Elite Octoling (talk) 14:47, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, I'm also kinda disappointed they couldn't come up with an original theme this time, but this still doesn't answer my question.
Though it almost seems like NoE doesn't really care about the Splatoon fans here. A non-Splatfest related example is the Squid Sisters 3DS theme: Japan got it about two months ago, and the US got it a few weeks later, but Europe still hasn't got it, even after six weeks of no theme updates. I really hope I'm wrong about this.
Arend (talk) 14:54, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

Wait I just realized... we're all forgetting something very important... it is time for accurate splat tim once again --Bzeep! talk 23:53, 10 October 2015 (UTC)


the results for popularity were:



and for wins



and the final results are



and so...


this was the closest splatfest yet, only a FOUR point difference. This was also the first Splatfest in the world where Version 2.0.0's change in battle multiplier from x2 to x4 made a difference in the outcome. With the old x2 multiplier, the score would have been 144-156 in favor of Team Plane.

congrats to team car, and very good job to all you team plane folk!

Full Japanese Splatfest Names

Guys, we should really have the full names for the Japanese Splatfests, like Maruchan Red Fox Udon vs Green Tanuki Soba, or Kirin Lemon Tea vs Milk Tea. Really. --Sigma talk 13:12, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

Honestly, "Maruchan Red Fox Udon vs Green Tanuki Soba" isn't the full name. Also "Kirin Lemon Tea vs Milk Tea". We don't say "Team Transformer Decepticon robots" as a full name. Just "Team Decepticons" accurately. But "Team Maruchan Red Fox Udon" was there in spite of incorrectness. However, it is true that correct full name "Red Fox vs. Green Tanuki" is somewhat elusive for most people. (Genuine full name is "Akai kitsune vs. Midori no Tanuki" though. These are proper nouns and the trading names. It's more hard to understand.) So, I tried to explain that in the Splatfest's Announcement. In fact, 2nd Japanese Splatfest's theme wasn't "Udon vs. Soba". We need to suggest things hard to understand, and write the explanation.--Azoth (talk) 13:35, 13 October 2015 (UTC)
Let's make a compromise. We keep the "Wins!" images the same. Those are my precious babies. --Sigma talk 19:46, 13 October 2015 (UTC)
I don't think it's a compromise using incorrect team names. Wait to add words and discuss till we get a consensus.--Azoth (talk) 22:50, 13 October 2015 (UTC)
I don't think that using incorrect team names is appropriate. It interferes with the understanding. We need the explanations for something hard to understand. Not incorrect names. So, I suggest using correct team names and put the explanations in appropriate places for those.--Azoth (talk) 23:16, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

Uh, stages for Cats and Dogs 2 was Walleye Warehouse, Saltspray Rig and Moray Towers. Hasn't been updated yet and the ink needs to be added Pinkolol16 (talk) 19:19, 18 October 2015 (UTC)

Stages and ink colors are updated now :) --Kaioora (talk) 21:27, 18 October 2015 (UTC)

Win Multiplier

Hey guys, apparently the wins multiplier is being changed from 4 to 6. I'm just putting this as a heads-up, because I don't want to mess up what we got going. Also, I have to LITERALLY leave my house in like, 10 minutes. --Sigma talk 19:38, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

Pirates vs. Ninjas Announcment Dialogue

I didn't see the Pirates vs. Ninjas Announcement dialogue added yet, so I thought I'd post it here. --MetalSmasher86 (talk) 1:27, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

Callie (happy): It's time to settle a rivalry as old as time itself!
Marie (happy): Yeah! Wait... what?
Callie (normal): The brazen buccaneers of the salty seas...PIRATES!
Marie (normal): Versus the silent assassins of the night...NINJAS!
Marie (normal): So, Callie, are you Team Pirate or Team Ninja?
Callie (happy): ARRR, MATEY! I be a pirate through and through!
Callie (serious): It's time to swab the deck and plunder the booty!
Marie (shocked): Whoa there, Callie. Let's keep it E for Everyone.
Marie (happy): And besides, ninjas are waaay cooler than pirates!
Marie (normal): I mean, how do you defeat that which you can't see?

Yea thanks dude! I'll put it in. Time to accidentally break the collapsibles again --Bzeep! talk 01:51, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

Pirates vs NInjas Times

It appears that the Pirates vs Ninjas Splatfest start time is incorrect. It is listed as 19:00 PT, but yet 19:00 PT has passed without Splatfest starting and the blog post says 9 PM (21:00) PT as well. (Also, why is this page protected?) OatmealDome (talk) 02:10, 31 October 2015 (UTC)

It looks like it did get corrected by another user. As for the page being protected, it's set that way due to being a high-traffic page, but it will allow "autoconfirmed users" to edit (you'll automatically become autoconfirmed after making more edits on the wiki, and you can check if you're autoconfirmed on the preferences page). --Kaioora (talk) 16:40, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

Multiplier Change

The scores for Love vs. Money and Pirates vs. Ninjas are wrong, as the battle victory multiplier was changed to x6. The scores should be: Love 353, Money 347, Pirates 382, Ninjas 318. But the problem is, I don't know how to add a new Splatfest format. I see the "old" format indicator for the x2 multiplier, but I don't know how to add another one for the x4 and the current format with the x6 multiplier to make the scores right. --MetalSmasher86 (talk) 7:47, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

"What Could Have Been" Dialogue

For the American Splatfests, how did somebody find the dialogue that would have taken place if the other team were to win for Art vs. Science and Cars vs. Planes? It's not important, but to whoever uncovered it, can you find what would have been for the other Splatfests? I'm just curious. --MetalSmasher86 (talk) 7:47, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

Heh, I was the one who put those in. The source I got them from is NWPlayer123, which she finds through the games' code files. Unfortunately, she didn't start looking for the other "What Could Have Been" scripts until Art vs. Science, and the dialogues go away after their Splatfest. Sigma talk 12:36, 1 November 2015 (UTC)--

Japanese Splatfest Announcement

The announcement text for Mountain vs Sea is here, and while I do know bits of Japanese, the text is definitely... challenging to read.

If anyone else could translate it, that'd be great! --Middy (talk) 02:42, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

Oh thanks, I forgot about that! Yeah I'll put it in. I'm so slow at transcribing stuff though, don't expect it too soon. :B --Bzeep! talk 03:21, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

I'm confused

Why the hey-hey did Azoth leave the new Japanese Splatfest with no ink colors? I'm pretty sure the teams have ink colors... --Sigma talk 13:58, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

The ink colors are picked in the screenshot of the gamepad using the reset button in the testing Area during the Splatfest. The colors are not confirmed yet. Yes, Splatfest sometimes uses its exclusive colors. We can't be sure unless taking the screenshot. Nothing, or make a pending icon for them till the splatfest starts.--Azoth (talk) 14:26, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

The win multiplier should be added to the charts

This is a protected page so I can't do it myself, but it would be worth noting the win multiplier (x2, x4, x6) that was used in a given Splatfest. Probably as a new column in the chart. It has changed twice already, so there's no guarantee it's going to stay at x6.

Whelt (talk) 08:37, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

Ooh that's a good idea! Where do you think it should go though? The charts are a already a little crowded. 😞 --Bzeep! talk 15:01, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

I would put it in a new column between Start and Winner.


Oh lordy, I didn't realize that involves changing Template:Splatfest result too. This is gonna be a little trickier than I thought... --Bzeep! talk 01:10, 7 December 2015 (UTC)

EU Splatfest #8: recommending changes

I recommend that the team name references for the eightht EU Splatest ("Pineapple on Pizza Is Delicious/Disgusting") be changed for the sake of contextual clarity. In the Results and Stages charts "Delicious" and "Disgusting" should be changed to their in-game equivalents "Pro-Pineapple" and "Anti-Pineapple", and under the promotional image the caption should be changed to "(Pineapple on Pizza Is...) Delicious vs. Disgusting". ThreePoint14 (talk) 04:02, 17 December 2015 (UTC)

Announcement of results

Hey everyone, just a quick correction to tell you about.

Under the "Reward tiers" section, it says that results are announced 24 hours after the Splatfest concludes. It's always 1 hour after it concludes. For me, they always end at 12 AM ET and the results come in at 1 AM ET.

Future color

The future color is a little pink-er than the shade shown here. I'm pretty sure it's not a normal Turf War color, because the first match I was in that was Future vs. Future had a brighter orange vs. the past shade of blue, whereas it's usually the exact same as the Splatfest colors. Now dat's a nutty kid. 02:30, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

Split up Pokémon Splatfests

I think they should just be split up to be honest, to show different timezones and also the fact that they aren't one big Splatfest. The global is pretty misleading if someone isn't to read the text below the table. Luke (talk) 14:59, 12 February 2016 (UTC)

Agreed. The Japanese one isn't even the same Splatfest (it's Red vs Green) Kjhf Talk Contribs 16:02, 12 February 2016 (UTC)

Can someone please add the quotes to the box. Marie - Yes! Blastoise adn friends take the victory! Callie - Not fair! Your team had the type advantage!

Splatfest Days

Has anyone noticed that sometimes Splatfests are on Saturday, sometimes they're on Sunday. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mr squid (talkcontribs) 20:00, 28 February 2016 (UTC)

For which region? All the North American ones I can remember have been from midnight to midnight on Saturday for the EST zone. Well, except the Red vs. Blue one, that went an extra hour I think. :0 --Bzeep! talk 22:19, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

New JP Splatfest

If anybody was wondering, a new Splatfest and new Splatfest stuff is on on SplatoonJP's Twitter. If anyone's reading this, do me a favor and add it. Being the Splatfest but I am I would do it myself, but unfortunately I'm on an iPod. Thanks. --Sigma talk 03:38, 4 March 2016 (UTC)

Global Section

I get that the recent SpongeBob vs. Patrick Splatfest was limited to only America and Europe, so it wasn't "global", but since this Splatfest is worldwide, AND every region will be able to play together, don't you think this should go into a whole other category? I haven't fully figured out what should happen, but maybe instead of putting this upcoming Splatfest into America, Europe + Oceania, and Japan... we could create a new Global section and put it there? --Sigma talk 19:42, 6 May 2016 (UTC)

EU Splatfest World Tour VS Space Adventure

Here are the Squid Sister's Quotes for this Splatfest's Results. I am unable to add this so I thought it would help to leave it here for someone else to add.


Callie: Congrats, world travellers! We Went the distance! Marie: I must have spaced out for a minute... Callie: We defended the Earth from a galactic threat! Marie: Sure, if that's how you want to look at it...


Callie: Super, Weltreisende! Ihr seid weit gekommen! (Super, world travellers! You have come far!)

Marie: Ich glaub, mich tritt ein Asteroid... (I believe, I was on an asteroid) *Check this*

Callie: Die Erde ist vor der Gefahr aus dem All gerettet! (The Earth is saved from the dangers of space!)

Marie: Wenn du das sagst... (If that's how you see it...)

Sadly, no. They've not been able to get the text their self these days. The last time they did it was for Snowman vs. Sand Castle and someone else did the actual memory dump. Hadamsj (talk) 20:24, 26 June 2016 (UTC)

Callie Vs. Marie Splatfest Next?

I just read the results dialog for our Early Birds vs. Night Owls Splatfest, and holy crap! It sounds like Nintendo is already doing Callie vs. Marie! I always imagined it as the final Splatfest, so is this it? Or is this just to promote the Squid Sisters Amiibos coming out early next month? --MetalSmasher86 (talk) 17:21, 26 June 2016 (UTC)

Splatfest results dialogue for Mushroom Mountain vs. Bamboo Shoot Village.

Someone should add the dialogue for the Mushroom Mountain vs. Bamboo Shoot Village Splatfest results. I know it's pretty generic like the others, but we did do it those past times. Here's the transcript and the (presumed) translation:

ホタル: たけのこの里チ~~~ム! (Marie: Bamboo Shoot Village Teaaaaaam!)

アオリ: えー! マジでーー?! (Callie: Ehh?! Reallyyy?!)

ホタル: たけのこの里チーム、ばんざ~い ばんざ~い ばんざ~い! (Marie: Bamboo Shoot Village Team, yeah yeah yeah!)

アオリ: きのこの山のみんなも、がんばってくれてありがとね! (Callie: Thanks to everyone on Team Mushroom Mountain, you did your best!)

I'd have done it myself, but with the page locked... --JosephStaleknight (talk) 04:39, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

Thanks, dude. I'll put it on the page right away. --Sigma talk 13:12, 1 July 2016 (UTC)
Woah, looks like we don't even have the pre-Splatfest dialogue for Mushroom Mountain vs. Bamboo Shoot Village. --Sigma talk 13:16, 1 July 2016 (UTC)
I put the announcement and results in, thanks! And in the future, you can edit the quotes too - they're in Splatfest/Quotes, which isn't protected. --Bzeep! talk 16:49, 2 July 2016 (UTC)

Something interesting about the final Splatfest

I noticed something interesting about the Callie vs Marie Splatfest. When a team is matched up against opponents on the same team the colors are always orange vs blue or green vs purple. The two 'main' ink colorations, or atleast the ones most often used in official art and the like such as the box art. Though obviously I'm not 100% on it so I wanted to ask for conformation first.--Robogamer64 (talk) 03:23, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

That may just be you. I've been matched up against my team and I've encountered pink vs. yellow and teal vs. pink matches. --Sigma talk 04:17, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
Okay I had a feeling they were flukes, thanks though--Robogamer64 (talk) 06:39, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

Changes after Final Splatfest

Is there a list of the changes that occurred after the final splatfest? It's annoying that they weren't announced officially (that I can find) and weren't part of a numeric version update. So far I've only found the Secret Sea Snails awarded after every 30th win and the increase to the winner's bonus in Turf War (300p -> 1000p). Was there anything else? Is there, or can there be, a page or a section of a page that actually lists the changes somewhere it would make sense to find them? MindWanderer (talk) 19:22, 29 July 2016 (UTC)

Possible reason for last Splatfest

Maybe the reason Splatfests ended in the game is because of Splatoon 2. So it could be possible that they might return someday. OmegaEX (talk) 05:26, 13 January 2017 (UTC)OmegaEX

The staff were reassigned to the sequel's development, that makes sense. Here's hoping for Splatfest's return then! Kjhf Talk Contribs 14:52, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

Page Separation

Since this page is very long because almost everything comes from Splatoon and the information we gather from Splatoon 2 will make it twice, or more, as long, I suggest creating a new Splatfest page just for the Splatoon 2 Splatfests. --ComJay (talk) 15:42, 15 July 2017 (UTC)

  • Sounds reasonable, though we'll have to gather screencaps, assets, etc. from Splatoon 2 before we form the page. Joseph Staleknight 15:47, 15 July 2017 (UTC)

Oceania Splatfest World Premiere

It sounds false, but the Oceania Splatfest World Premiere is actually the same as the North American one. Not sure if it will be like this for Splatfests in the final game. --ComJay (talk) 16:07, 15 July 2017 (UTC)


I believe that this page should be split into a general page and specific pages for each version. This would reduce the page's size and make it easier to read IMO. Thoughts? Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 17:53, 15 July 2017 (UTC)

Support Much easier to read. Awesomelink234 (talk) 18:44, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
Neutral. I don't know that it's necessary. The page seems easy enough to read as-is. But I see no reason why we can't split it if the majority wants to. Now dat's a nutty squid. 19:33, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
Support. This page is clearly going to become bloated if it continues to contain general info, full Splatoon 1 specific info, and full Splatoon 2 specific info all in one page. This article should only summarize articles specific to each game. Heddy (talk) 00:10, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

Score of "Cake V.S. Ice Cream" Splatfest in Splatoon 2

It's marked in the table as "2-1", but in-game the score was shown to be "1-2" (one point for Pearl, and two for Marina). This is a screenshot I took on my own Switch at the end of the Splatoon 2 Splatfest World Premier:

I suggest that its final score displayed on the Splatfests page be changed to match the in-game final score. :) Kizul Emeraldfire (talk) 21:57, 3 September 2017 (UTC)

Sanrio spellings?

I originally had it spelled "Pom Pom Purin" because that's how Sanrio themselves romanize it. Check their website: Sanrio Character sheet, English site -DJParticle (talk) 03:02, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

  • EDIT: On the other hand, when you click it it's romanized as one 🤷🏻‍♀️ -DJParticle (talk) 03:04, 10 May 2018 (UTC)
Ahh really? I was going off of the shop page here. :o It seems like the majority of sanrio stuff has it as one word, maybe the "pom pom purin" on the english site was just a mistake 🤔 --Bzeep talk 03:10, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

Redundant Gallery Images

I was wondering if we should keep the icons, catchphrases and introductions of Off the Hook, as it doesn’t seem to be kept up as much as other images. Once a Splatfest goes by and photos aren’t captured, there’s not really anyway to recover any of them apart from screenshots on YouTube. Plus, it’s kind of redundant, since all the Inkopolis Square gallery needs are the two statues, how characters are changed, general things like that. This is just a suggestion, and it can be kept if needed. Adamsquid (talk) 13:25, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

Sanrio 33rd Tournament

So the 33rd Sanrio Tournament concluded, and the character crowned as the winner was.....

Pochacco! I was considering placing its promo image created by the dev team on the Gallery page, but wondering if it’s not needed. Sure, it’s technically part of the Sanrio Sponsorship, but I just want to make sure if we should place it or not. Adamsquid (talk) 11:01, 4 June 2018 (UTC)

Alternative dialogue

I put up some of the alternative dialogue (what would have been said if the opposite team won, per the game's data) for a few fests here: I'll add this soon-ish unless someone wants to do it first. :) –Eli (talk) 19:19, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

Splatoon 2 Splatfest Constructions

There's actually more than just the stage that's built before the Splatfest. Some days before, on the back of the square behind the Amiibo box, large metalic structures can be found. They're meant to hold the neon Splatfest posts. I don't know about the exact time at which they appear though. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Olkris (talkcontribs)

Clout to replace Battle Victories

From the official Tumblr's posts following today's Nintendo Direct, they announced a complete rework of the Splatfest scoring system. Namely, Battle Victory percentages are going away in favor of Clout. We should probably go add a section with details as soon as the first 4.0.0 Splatfest begins.

Team Nicknames needed?

Adjective Required
"Squid" All members of the team must be Inklings.
"Octo" All members of the team must be Octolings.

I think a chart something like the above should be added to this page being that the new team nicknames are added. What do you think? B ron 3000 backup (talk) 02:19, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

I agree, it seems unprofessional to just post a link to another website. With all due respect it feels like the Wiki is saying, "Well this page has done all the work, why should we bother?" And while we're at it, maybe add a "Splatfest Title" to all the Gear infoboxes? KingAwesome467 (talk) 19:22, 23 October 2018 (UTC)

Aren't all 3 regions considered the same Splatfest? Usually, we have been using only one tier to denote a multiregion Splatfest. Is there a reason why the regions are listed separately? Shouldn't it be like this instead?
