Tentatek (Japanese: アロメ Arome) is a brand in Splatoon and Splatoon 2. Tentatek makes a variety of gear and have designed three weapons: the S Weapon Main Tentatek Splattershot.png Tentatek Splattershot, S2 Weapon Main Dark Tetra Dualies.png Dark Tetra Dualies, and S2 Weapon Main Light Tetra Dualies.png Light Tetra Dualies.

Their gear has a high chance of rolling S2 Ability Ink Recovery Up.png Ink Recovery Up as a sub ability and a very low chance of rolling S2 Ability Quick Super Jump.png Quick Super Jump (unless the player is under the effects of a Quick Jump Orange).

According to SplatoonJP, Tentatek produces sportswear and athletic shoes,[2] with their brightly colored, high-tech trainers and Sea Slugs popular among young Inklings.[3]


The Tentatek logo is a pink oval shape with squid eyes in white. The writing below it is in Inkling and appears to have an Inkling rendition of a Trademark logo. The logo itself is known as a squid eye and is fashioned off of the pattern around an Inkling's eyes.

By the events of Splatoon 2, they changed their logo to a more simple design, with the oval removed and just the squid eye pattern (which the coloring varies from black to pink) and the Trademark logo in the bottom corner. However, holdover gear from Splatoon retains the old logo.

  • The Tentatek logo appears to be fashioned off of the pattern around an Inkling's eyes.
  • The writing underneath the logo is similar to its translated Japanese name, 'Arome'.
  • In art for the Hero vs. Villain Splatfest, Marina wears a pair of Tentatek shoes unavailable to players. They are similar to S2 Gear Shoes Sesame Salt 270s.png Sesame Salt 270s but are mainly dark gray with white and teal accents.
  • It seems Tentatek is also a seller of soda named Tentacola, according to dialogue between Pearl and Marina for Ancho-V Games, Musselforge Fitness and Skipper Pavilion. In other languages, it is named Tentatek Cola, a clearer indication that is Tentatek branded.
