Introduction I guess

Konnichiwa, Guest-san, welcome to my user page, where anyone, guy, girl, enban (enby version of man or woman), or anything in-between is welcome. I'm ArivakiVA. I use Japanese honorifics for people, but if you don't want me to refer to you with one, just ask! Feel free to tell me if I might have misgendered you as well!

Random info (on wiki and in-game)

My friend code is SW-6014-8770-6718, and my username should currently be oto-kun if translated to English. I don't accept friend requests at random, I only accept if I recognize your name (and yes, recognizing your name from a game also counts). Please let me know if you're gonna send a friend request though. I have an alt account on this wiki by the name of Superlunary, if things on this account go wrong in some way. I have a few friends on this wiki, they are: @Hae's Home for Flowers, @Ratch, @Xan, @SP☆CEBOY, @Chrome Wolf, @Oddlilgoof and @Jacobearth! Go check them out, they're very friendly and cool! My current username (in-game, to clarify), is EY3FLVRD (a parody of one of my fav artists)


I have worked on a few weapon pages, special pages, and manga character pages, but I will probably try to help with the current projects, such as unfinished pages or stubs. I also do small Japanese translations (I know very small amounts of Japanese) and grammar and spelling edits. I'm a pretty new person here, so I'm just a normal user with pretty much no wiki experience. Basically that means don't ask me anything complicated. Here are my sandboxes if you wanna see them (although the second one is kinda boring). User:ArivakiVA/Sandbox, User:ArivakiVA/Sandbox2. If there was a job that involved greeting new wiki members and resolving discussions on talk pages, that's pretty much what I do around here. I also have a lot of interest in lore, and I'm currently digging through S2 and 3 lore. I also love puns. If you have a project or infobox, or something you need help with, I'm normally not busy, so feel free to ask if you need help!

My octo's appearance (bc image uploading sucks):

Masculine octoling, Palest skin color, white eyes + black pupils, usually the punk, octolocks, or surfcurl hairstyle, and the thick or slit eyebrows (Outfit varies, but you can usually see me wearing glasses of some kind)

Inkfests and Splatfests

These are Inkfests that I joined or created/hosted.

"As much as Stingers are fun, I found myself being oddly drawn to the Splatana after the fest was over. Odd. In any case, congrats to both teams. Wish I could've been there!

Here are my Splatfest teams and the reasons why I chose them. (S3)

Rock (Win) Reason: It was the most popular.

Grub (Loss) Reason: I like food.

Fire (Loss) Reason: I like Fire-type starters.

Sweet (Win) Reason: I don't like spicy food, I like sour stuff (almost went team Sour lol), but sweet's the best.

Milk Chocolate (Loss) Reason: It's actually chocolate, though I almost went team Dark.

Aliens (Loss) Bigfoot has been pretty much proven false, as well as Nessie, and I love aliens.

Power (Win) Good ink color, Ganon's outfit slays, power is awesome. I almost went Wisdom though, because you need wisdom to control power properly, and wisdom to know when to use your bravery and when to stand down. Ganon is still superior though. I also won a 10x and got a mention in the news! :D My name was ヒロー (OMORI)!

For the geeks/nerds (yes I know that they're different)

For the other nerds out there: Ravenclaw house, Corrin, Cloud, Robin, Ness/Lucas, Inkling, and Roy main, Winter sympathizer, Team Monarch fan, and Team Chaos!

In any case, I hope that you have fun around here, and if you're completely new here, just ask me stuff on my talk page (just click the thing that says discussion, it's underneath my name) and I'll try to help you as best I can, or go to the staff page (which is on the left side of the page, under community), and ask one of the staff. Forget about me, though. I'm such a rambler, I forgot about how cool YOU are!

You have ...err... edits! And you signed up on ... wait you haven't signed up yet?! You're amazing! Anyway, stay cool, stay fresh, and stay YOU! :)
