Weapons in Splatoon 3

I don't know how to edit navboxes (or whatever they're called), but can someone please add the Inkzooka to the Special Weapon Category in the Weapons in Splatoon 3 navbox? BambamOh (talk) 02:27, 18 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Unless there was a tweet or announcement I didn't see, which there could well have been so please link it if so, that weapon shown in the trailer was not confirmed to be the Inkzooka. Luke26 (talk) 11:15, 18 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Speaking of weapons, It was confirmed that Splat bombs are in Splatoon 3! I took a screenshot, but I think It'd be easier if I just linked a video of someone pointing it out. I'll link a video: Go to the 6:00 timestamp, titled Sub Weapons, and watch from there. And, if you go back to the 5:13 timestamp titled Ink Bow, watch from there, and pay close attention to the inkling wielding it, you'll see that the inkling that wields the new bow and arrow weapon seems to be the one using the sub weapon, giving us a potential early kit for the bow and arrow; The bow itself, the Splat bomb, and the Inkzooka-looking special weapon! Hope these findings help us out!WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 19:08, 19 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Also, since we confirmed that splat bombs are in Splatoon 3, can someone edit the box that lists all the weapons in the game and put a sub weapon section, and add the splat bomb into it? I dunno how... WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 01:56, 22 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've added Splat Bomb to the Navbox for Splatoon 3 --AmbientDinosaurSig.pngAmbientDinosaurSigTalk.png 14:39, 22 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you! WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 15:55, 22 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Can we also do this for the weapons revealed in the trailer? Timewip2020 (talk) 03:43, 8 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

They've already been added in the navbox. If you're talking about the page where all of the weapons are listed, then don't worry, people are currently working on that. WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 19:19, 11 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Project Splatoon 3

Has anybody noticed that several of the new weapons, namely the bow and arrow weapon and the new Splattershot, seem very similar to some of the weapon concepts in the fanmade Project Splatoon 3? EminenceTalk 16:31, 18 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes, but hasnt literly EVERYONE wanted a bow class? Squid400 (talk) 16:46, 18 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
There are so many ideas in that fan art that there was bound to be some overlap with Nintendo's ideas. I think the designs actually look very different, so different that it's possible Nintendo came up with the idea without being influenced by that project. Heddy (talk) 02:13, 19 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I don't mean to insult squeaky's Project Splatoon 3, because it still is really fresh (if I may), but Once I saw the wasteland-looking terrain and that upside-down Eiffel tower and THE LIL BUDDY, I knew that we had just struck the gold of Nintendo's mines, and I threw all my OC characters for squeaky's Splatoon 3 out the window.

Should i make a gallery for Splatoon 3? THANKS XD CANT WAIT.Squid400 (talk) 17:00, 18 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A gallery in already in the article. Heddy (talk) 02:14, 19 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

So I'm going to put a screenshot of the Splatoon 3 trailer on the Inkipedia that I cropped. I wanted to know if that was legal before i do it, though. WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 19:15, 22 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Of course it's legal. Almost every image that we have of Splatoon 3 comes from the trailer. EminenceTalk 19:25, 22 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

original octo styles

I found a tiny clip in the S3 trailer of the two original octoling hairstyles.(tentacurl and punk)

Yes I noticed that after i put the pic up here by watching a video online that had better quality video, but I still think thats tentacurl.-Pinezapple(talk) 19:06, 19 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

That is Tentacurl, and also, this vid shows that other hairstyles, such as Banger and Pigtail, are shown in the trailer, so (maybe?) we should probably add screenshots to the gallery. dedf1sh07 (talk) 02:50, 20 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
All hairstyles shown in the trailer are already in the gallery. EminenceTalk 13:53, 21 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Actually, I think that the hairstyle that the octoling with the range blaster had is a new one. I don't think it's the punk. We should probably remove that from the gallery until we confirm what the hairstyle is actually called. WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 14:21, 21 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

So I found the punk in a separate pic of splatsville. The octoling wearing the annaki yellow cuff on the left side of the photo has the punk hairstyle, so I added the punk back to the customization section. WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 15:50, 12 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ammo Knights

In the trailer, just before it says 'Splatoon 3', on the bottom left, there is an ammo knights logo. I dont have a screenshot or picture, but what should be put in! I dont think we could confirm it because it could be graffiti. What should I do? Toni Kensa (talk) 23:04, 18 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

We need to wait for confirmation that Ammo Knights is in Splatoon 3 before adding that info to the article. Heddy (talk) 02:08, 19 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Spawn point

Looking at this image, the ground spawn point in present, but covered in a tarp. This suggests that it will only be available in some modes, but we need solid evidence before we can add this info to the article. Heddy (talk) 07:25, 19 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

That's good I didn't catch that, but anyway you are right but I don't know if it's gonna be in other maps. It might, but I doubt it. OctoKing [TALK] 16:30, 19 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Tenta Missiles

In this video, it shows Tenta Missile-like projectiles. We should probably add a picture to the gallery, but since I don't really know how to properly do it, can someone else do it? BambamOh (talk) 19:02, 19 February 2021 (UTC) (Sorry I forgot to put my Signature)Reply[reply]

this was corfirmed to be a W.I.P and no tenta missles in splat 3 Particle Zero (talk) 13:01, 6 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Nonbinary flag colors

Should we include, under Trivia, the fact that the main promotional colors are the same as the nonbinary flag? (sorry for english) Awildmusk (talk) 18:28, 19 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Just looked at that, you are correct. im not sure about white and black appearing in the game, but yellow and purple are. Ask an admin about that. Squid400 (talk) 18:36, 19 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Actually my theory for the ink colors being the way they are (and I came up with this theory even before the 3 trailer came out) is that the final fest colors for splatoon 1 were pink vs green and then the promo colors for 2 were pink and green. I figured that splatoon 3's promo colors would be a modified chaos vs order colors and they are. This may be just coincidental but it's my theory anyways. -Pinezapple(talk) 06:19, 20 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Even one proud NB didnt notice that!--Astor Astor.png Prinz.png 09:57, 20 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I saw that too but I can't tell if they did that on purpose because they added an option to do non-binary characters ( ) (talk) 15:52, 9 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I just hope that there are no sexist characters in S3 due to the series being kid-friendly, and the promo colors being altered versions of Chaos vs. Order's due to S3's theme being centered around chaos. Even though hair and leggings are no longer sorted by gender, I'll still get the game anyway. There may be some boy hairstyles that can look good on girls and vice versa. Just to point out that "don't judge a book by its cover", Nintendo games are aimed at younger audiences, so they are making sure to avoid adding in inappropriate content (sexual, racist, curse words and gestures), but social media communities come up with incredibly vile fan theories from what they see, which pisses me off. I also hope we can change our avatar's species and gender if we want to like in the past games. Just sharing my thoughts. P.J. GT (talk) 17:54, 20 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I agree. I mean, I love a good theory, but those crazy internet people man, they can turn something totally innocent and kid friendly into something weird and eViL. I hope Nintendo doesn't take things too far...-Pinezapple(talk) 20:18, 20 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

About what we were talking about on the ink colors for Splatoon 3, I was thinking that the ink colors for the game are what they are because Purple and yellow are the inverse of each other, like pink and neon green are the inverse of each other, and orange and blue are, too. WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 13:53, 21 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yeah,I actuality speculated that those would be the main colors of splatoon 3 because they were the last set of complementary colors and not anything more than that.Fancy squid<:= (talk) 15:43, 21 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Possibility of apartments?

So, a lot of people have been talking about the possibility of apartments being added in Splatoon 3, and I think that it may be a possibility, too. Maybe the apartments are a place where you can interact with the lil buddy! Just wanted to address that. WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 14:17, 21 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sorry but we actually have a policy on Rumors and leaks, if it is popular amongst the public and you provide sources of demand.--Astor Astor.png Prinz.png 19:15, 21 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I really hope that there are apartments become a thing, I really like the new feature of being able to edit your locker in the lobby but you can't do that for your salmon run locker which makes me kinda upset. ( ) (talk) 16:04, 9 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Splattershot Kit

I've found the special weapon for the newly-designed Splattershot. The trailer shows that after the player fires the Inkzooka, they pull out the Splattershot. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 02:22, 28 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

we nead a new picture

I was thinking of the picture of the squid sisters in front of the Eiffel tower and also what colours you can have might be a good list

I'm not sure if that picture should go here because this is about Splatoon 3, but the Eiffel Tower is shown in the picture. I think good pictures might be the more close up pictures of the weapons (The hydra splatling, the new splattershot, the E-liter, and the Gal), but they would be from the trailer instead of from twitter, if that is ok. I'm not sure what you mean by colors, and if you mean ink colors, I'm pretty sure that yellow and purple are the only colors that have been shown so far (in battle) unless I missed other colors.

Adding a s3 navbox to the blaster page

As we saw from some promotional images, the blaster has been confirmed to be in Splatoon 3. Can someone add a navbox to the Blaster page? WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 14:20, 3 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It is already there. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 17:40, 3 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Not the range blaster. I'm talking about the blaster. Not the range blaster. You can clearly see it in the promotional images. Sorry, should've been more specific. WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 19:12, 3 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The navbox for the Blaster is there as well. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 20:30, 3 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

2 Less Limbs?

I just saw during GG Gabriel Gaming's video about the "trailer analysis" that the Inkling in Splatsville has only two tentacles from the back, instead of four. Either they used two more tentacles for the braid or Inklings now have 8 limbs, like Octolings. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 17:52, 5 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm pretty sure this is because it takes 3 strings to make a braid, so they would need to use 3 tentacles. So 3 in the braid, 1 in the front, and 2 in the back, is still 6 tentacles.-Pinezapple(talk) 18:14, 5 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Range Blaster's range

Right after the Range Blaster performs a Squid Surge, and right when the camera angle spins around, the Range Blaster fires their weapon at the Bow, who is a little far. The range of the Range Blaster in the Splatoon 3 trailer seems irregular, as it the same painting range as an Aerospray MG. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 18:33, 7 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Note that the game is still in development, so it's likely that what you're talking about was just a kink that they're fixing. If we get more gameplay showing what you saw, then it might be a good idea to list that out, but for now, I'd let it go. I don't mean to sound bossy or rude, just stating what I think. WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 19:25, 11 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Later in the trailer you see a regular blaster with the range of a range blaster, pretty sure they just changed some parameters to make the trailer look more interesting, swim speed seems to be slower on all weapons too NZZN (talk) 19:28, 11 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

While that is a possibility, I don't think that was what Nintendo was going for, due to the sheer amount of hype people had for this game. I mean, Nintendo probably knew that everyone would be either freaking out, poggin', or fainted. While I mostly meant for that last bit to be a joke, it's also kinda true. People would've been to excited to notice. WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 19:33, 11 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Splatoon 3 Range Blaster/(?)Blaster Changes

So in Vicvillion Splatoon 3 Trailer analysis at 14:55 ( Here ) she noticed that the Blaster shot pieces through the Octoling getting shot? Should that be added to the Range Blaster page? Also, maybe instead we should probably make a Trailer Notices section in Splatoon 3 for things like this, just in case this is wrong. Timewip2020 (talk) 04:44, 10 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Timewip2020 We should not add it to the Range Blaster because it is not confirmed, and it might just be a misconception. We need more evidence, such as a tweet from Nintendo, if you want to add that feature to the Range Blaster page. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 06:38, 10 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Gear in S3

Now that we've confirmed some weapons and new abilities, next we need to move onto the gear. From the trailer, I was able to spot some returning gear, such as the golf visor, Fugu bell hat, Studio headphones, fake contacts (possibly), B-Ball jersey (home), Camo layered LS, Camo zip hoodie, Dakro Golden tee (possibly), swim goggles, N-pacer sweat, Baby jelly shirt and tie, Full moon glasses, SV925 circle shades, Gold hi-horses (possibly), and the short beanie. I got most of this from the shot of the hub, and some of these are assumptions (marked with "possibly") based on the details and glimpses I was able to catch. I'm fairly confident that everything that I just mentioned is what I claimed it to be, except for ones marked with "possibly". Hope this helps us out in the future. WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 19:59, 11 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Added the Annaki Mask, Annaki Yellow Cuff, Rina Squidkid VI, and the Safari Hat, and the Tea Green Hunting Boots. Timewip2020 (talk) 20:57, 12 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

So I was watching a splatoon 3 trailer analysis video, and it mentioned some returning gear in splatoon 3, and it has some gear items that I missed in the trailer and in promotional images. Also, I was wrong about the baby jelly shirt and tie being in the trailer. turns out it was just the regular old shirt and tie. That aside, the gear I missed were the punk cherries, zekko long carrot tee, king jersey (possibly), red fishfry sandals, knitted hat, amber sea slug hi tops, choco clogs, snowy down boots, and turquoise kicks. So yeah, I missed like half the returning gear items. Oof. To see all of the listed returning gear items in the video, skip to the 19:40 mark. WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 20:33, 28 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

ok so I managed to confirm that the King jersey is in the s3 trailer, as well as the annaki berret+glasses, so i'll add those in. WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 15:08, 29 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Squid Squad is back???

One new detail that I found is that there is a sticker in Splatsville that contains the Squid Squad logo! I'll add it to Trivia, just in case Squid Squad is actually back. I'll also add an image as proof. Timewip2020 (talk) 23:39, 11 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hope squid squad is back. They used Splattack in the first trailer, so maybe? WoomyGirl85 (talk) 15:07, 24 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That may be true, and also please don't use references as links. Instead, use the option next to the picture and signature options on the top left.

New Weapons unshowcased in the Splatsville Ammo Knights Store

So after analyzing the trailer for the 50th time, I think I might have discovered a new bow/sub weapon? I'll upload some images as proof. Timewip2020 (talk) 19:03, 12 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

New-bow-image1.png So here, at first I thought those were Dapple Dualies, but no that looks like a weapon shaped like a bow.

You may wanna edit the pic a little bit. Even when I zoom in and turn my brightness up all the way, it's still barely visible. I can see it, yes, and these are some pretty good findings, but ya mind upping the saturation a little bit? WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 19:16, 12 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

So y'know how the inklings and the octolings's battle start poses vary

I was lookin' at pics of the spawner drones, and I saw that the octoling holding the range blaster has a different battle start pose than the other shooter weapons that we see. Does this mean that the blaster, including other secondary weapon categories, may become a different weapon type in splatoon 3? WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 13:12, 24 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Maybe the entrance poses will be like the after battle poses, with a different one for each weapon type and species. WoomyGirl85 (talk) 15:14, 24 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Looks like they're making poses more samey? Octo and Inklings using the same weapon have the same animation. The Octoling with brush in the release date trailer has the same animation as the inkling in the 2022 New Year twitter clip. To be fair, this is only one instance with only one example, but I do hope they maintain variety to the post-match animations Ryanstev (talk) 22:46, 18 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Third-person shooter?

Hello, I noticed that under Genre we have Third-person Shooter. We haven't seen any gameplay yet so is it safe to assume? (I personally think it will be, but, I'm just bringing it up.) AwildmuskS3 Weapon Main .52 Gal.png(Hablo español?) 15:38, 25 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The trailer showed that jump into the stage in 3rd person, so the game is indeed 3rd person. Timewip2020 (talk) 17:14, 25 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Well, we don't know for sure. Personally, I'm not so sure if a ton of what we saw WAS gameplay, including the enter animation. To me the enter animation seemed too well made to be gameplay. But for the turf war scenes, that was definitely gameplay, no doubt. WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 16:26, 28 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Really early gameplay was shown at on the Switch OLED announcement, also noticed some spaceman grafitti, could correlate with ark polaris — Preceding unsigned comment added by NZZN (talkcontribs) 13:31, 6 July 2021‎ (UTC)Reply[reply]

I noticed Tenta Missile projectiles at 1:43 in the trailer in addition to the photo that Nintendo posted. However, they could be reusing assets from Splatoon 2 as it is early footage. Warriorking98 (talk) 20:53, 6 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I also noticed that the bow can save charge like a Splat Charger. Samurottlover (talk) 01:13, 7 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I think I found the special for the new E-liter...

So I looked at a promotional image (click here to see it), and I think I may have found out the special paired with the E-liter. In the background to the left of the inkzooka-weilding inkling, you can see the sloshing machine inkling , in which the tenta missiles seem to be targeting based off of direction, plus the ink colors are different. On the central platform, you can make out a red shoe, which likely belongs to the range blaster octoling (this is further supported by the fact that he was splatted by the inkzooka while on the central platform after splatting the gal octoling, which explains both absences in the shot), and plus, we confirmed that the special for the range is the killer-wail like special. In the trailer, we can see the gold dynamo weilder on a platform near our bow friend, and the fact that the machine is facing the wall likely indicates the dynamo is swimming up the wall (also quick side note; using the process of elimination and placement, I also concluded that the special for the machine is likely the killer-wail like special, too). Finally, if you look closely to the left right under the fish skeleton sign, you can make out an e-liter peeking around a wall, and based off of the ink surrounding the charger and where the missiles were launced from, I concluded that the E-liter's special is in fact the tenta missiles (sorry if I had any bad grammar there, I know that was a lot).

I mentioned this in the talk page of weapons and in the splatoon 3 section of tenta missiles (it was deleted tho). But yea, the e liter scope probably has tenta missiles. The only other Charger with tenta missiles was the bamboozler! BadTimeGamer123 (talk) 20:15, 12 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]


So, someone in one of the reaction vid i found on youtube pointed an Inkjet Landing Mark at 0:33 at the trailer & it looked like this.

Can someone confirm that this is an Inkjet Landing Mark & add it to the page ? Samurottlover (talk) 03:19, 24 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yeah, that's definetly an inkjet landing mark, but i didn't see any inkjets. I'd add it myself later, but im kinda busy right now. Good eye! WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 13:51, 24 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It's actually for the new Zipcaster special. I too, though it was Inkjet, but Shahar corrected me.

Oh. That makes sense. They'll likely change it so people dont get confused. WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 14:09, 24 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok, Thank you for the information. Samurottlover (talk) 14:17, 24 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh, and just so no one else has to waste their time, i throughourly examined the second trailer, and couldn't find any more returning gear (besides from the potential return of the cap of legend and hero headset replica). Just throwing that out there. WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 14:24, 24 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This isn't really on the topic of Inkjet, but idk how to make another subheading thing. Can anyone tell what old agent 3/captain is wearing? I can only make out the flip flops, hat and headset, and the pants. WoomyGirl85 (talk) 15:12, 24 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@P.J. GT actually, I watched an analysis video about the trailer (here's the link:, and I saw that the zipcaster has a different landing icon than the inkjet. So what should we do? WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 14:36, 25 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Let's just leave it. It was possibly an optical illusion based on how far it was to make it out. P.J. GT (talk) 15:12, 25 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Actually, it's a placeholder for the Zipcaster based on this image of the Splash user from the trailer that show they returned to where they activated it.

Project splatoon 3 page

Should we add a page for project splatoon 3Thebest (talk) 20:38, 1 November 2021 (UTC) And yes this is probably a no but its a pretty major thingThebest (talk) 20:40, 1 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Inkipedia covers only official content and Project Splatoon 3 is fan made so yeah no. ChessMaster [TALK] 20:52, 1 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The scope of Inkipedia is limited to official content, with some exceptions. According to Inkipedia policy, fan art must become officially recognized by Nintendo in order to be covered in Inkipedia articles. Heddy (talk) 03:53, 2 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I was reading the preorder thing for Sploon 3 on the website and I noticed something interesting about the age rating. It said cartoon violence, and then under it, users interact and ingame purchases. This was not present on 1 or 2, I checked, despite the in game posts being pretty "users interact" to me. Anyways, idk if this should be mentioned as a future thing and I wanted to hear y'all's thoughts. WoomyGirl85 (talk) 22:00, 26 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You were right, i just checked the EShop and yep, those things are written in Sploon 3's page. The In-game purchase kinda weird for a Splatoon game, as this feature was absent in the 1 & 2. Except if this is kind of a Paid DLC. I don't know if we need to include this on the Sploon 3 Page or not. Samurottlover (talk) 22:39, 26 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Also, I think this could this be due to the requirement to indicate potential purchases to be added to game packaging in 2018. Some new games have "in game purchases" on the box but it doesn't ever happen, like for Pokemon BDSP. Ryanstev (talk) 22:36, 18 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Location of Alterna

Has it been confirmed that Alterna is part of the Splatlands? The locations section currently has Alterna included as part of the Splatlands, like Splatsville. I am not sure whether Nintendo have said yet where Alterna is. I think it is quite likely that it is not part of the Splatlands, similar to how Octo Canyon is not part of Inkopolis. GX 64 (talk) 07:39, 6 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I had a look at the tweets from when Return of the Mammalians was announced, and I can't find anything saying that Alterna is part of the Splatlands. The only tweet I could find mentioning the location says something about how the atmosphere is different to the Splatlands. This is the text in the tweet and the Google translation: 映像の最後に映し出された、巨大な建造物がそびえる風景。 これまで見てきたバンカラ地方とはなんだか雰囲気が違う。 どこにあるのか、何の目的で作られた場所なのかは調査中だが、「オルタナ」という名前で呼ばれていることは判明した。 ここが今回のヒーローモードの舞台となるようだ。
The scenery of a huge building projected at the end of the video. The atmosphere is somewhat different from the Bunkara region I have seen so far. We are investigating where it is and what purpose it was created for, but it turns out that it is called "Alterna". This seems to be the stage of this hero mode GX 64 (talk) 05:41, 9 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It was never confirmed that Alterna was part of the Splatlands, at least not yet. OrderSquid123 (talk) 09:06, 9 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok. I edited it a few hours ago to put Alterna separate to Splatlands GX 64 (talk) 10:03, 9 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Page protection?

Should the Splatoon 3 page be protected, as it appears to be a favorite target by the recent vandal attacks (As they proclaim themselves to be a, quote, "Splatoon-hater"). Sincerely, P.J. GT(talk)SSBU Inkling Boy.png 18:30, 31 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Although I am not in the decision-making position, I would support this. This is one of the more important pages, and unfortunately our uninvited guest tends to change the box at the top of the page in distasteful ways. In fact, the last time they visited, it was so bad that I'm worried that young kids might soon be seeing 18+ content at the wrong time. I think they are clicking the links on the main page, which is why Splatoon 2, Splatoon 3 and stuff like the main characters are the most targeted pages. So yes, at least temporarily we should think about doing this.   Perfectionist   (talk) 19:36, 31 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Tableturf Battle

I've gone through the entire clip of Tableturf Battle and documented all the info within. This is mostly stats. I know it may be a bit early for that, but I'm not planning to be a editor for this wiki. Just passing along the info. --Eldritchdraaks (talk) 06:32, 11 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I think it's called Table Turf, not Tableturf. OctoAmbush (talk) 16:41, 11 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That would be incorrect. The staff member in the video refers to it as "Tableturf." --Eldritchdraaks (talk) 19:35, 11 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Number "3" Easter egg

I saw how in the page it showed how sploon 3 shows a lot on ow the game mentions how the number 3 is a common thing and I realized that the secret level shows that too, I just wanted to mention that. BackintotheInk (talk) 18:51, 21 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I believe that is mentioned on its page Lofiguy Splatoon - Squid 2D orange.png S2 Weapon Main Kensa Splat Roller.png (talk) 17:01, 16 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

When will we do this?

So, I've been going through the wiki, and I see nothing about stats, data, or anything about weapons and specials. When will we put this in? Moone (talk) 21:42, 28 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Fred Crumbs, Shelly, and Donny need to be added to the characters list.

I guess it could be added in Spring once the Splatoon 3 update comes out. But can someone update the list? Mosthated (talk) 01:48, 10 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A thing about Splatoon 3

Isn't Splatoon 3 confirmed to be the last game in the story arc? I'm not sure. Moon (talk) 02:44, 5 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I believe the only source for that information is the "witness the finale of this saga" (paraphrased a little I forgot how it went) line from one of the Nintendo Directs, isn't it? If you're looking to add information like that to the page, I would wait until there's a developer interview or something along those lines saying that more concretely rather than just a marketing phrase. As it stands the phrase from the direct could theoretically have been talking about just the end of RotM itself rather than the story arc of the series as a whole. Pringlesfan2002 (talk) 03:38, 5 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
In the NoA version of the 2022 Splatoon 3 Direct, RotM was mentioned as being "the epic finale of this splat-tastic saga" (presumably the Hero Mode saga), not the series itself. There was no equivalent mention of the current Hero Mode storyline concluding with RotM in the Japanese version of the Direct, which the English version was localized from. There is currently no confirmation that S3 is the last game in the series; there is no information from which we can assume one or the other way at this time.

I was saying the last game in the current story arc, not the series. I should have made that clearer. But I understand, I was simply wondering whether or not it was an actual official thing, and if it was, it would need to be added to the article. Hope the rephrasing sounded a bit better!
