From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki
This is a sandbox page
Take everything you read here with a grain of salt. Sandboxes are generally used for testing, practice and personal projects. They are not held to anywhere near the standards of a regular mainspace page.

To Do

- Consider recording all splatfest dance animations & general player npc animations and compiling them on the wiki. this is probably only possible for splatoon 2 with hacking. we still have time for doing it legit with s3 though !

Video advertisements and graphics [x]

Format

  • Merge stage sections with hub sections, making a single table with a location column
While this will lead to a lot of repetition of "Lobby/Hub" for Splatoon 3, a lot of advertisements found in Splatoon 2's stages can also be found in the hub. Having separate tables for hub ads & stage ads doesn't seem like it'll work for Splatoon 2, and possibly won't work for Splatoon 3 in the future. Regardless, this should be done for consistency.
  • Rework/fix tables
Currently, the tables don't look great on mobile. This is because the column widths are percentages as the default widths make the description as wide as possible and the outer columns very thin. This should be fixed.

Content

  • Add Splatoon 1 ads/graphics
Note: Will have to be recorded in-game as converting them to video using their frames is much more difficult than with Splatoon 2 and Splatoon 3.
  • Add Splatoon 2 ads/graphics
  • Add 'First seen' information to Splatoon 2 tables
This will be tricky, but you may find information in the trivia sections of some articles, as well as in the version pages

Things to consider

  • Renaming the page
'Video advertisements and graphics' is a bit of a mouthful and is somewhat vague. Under this definition, the animations that appear on Splatoon 3's lobby tower could count, alongside the videos that play on the Squid Sisters' Splatfest trucks. The 'graphics' part was added due to non-advertising videos being included (the animations above the lobby entrance in S2, and now fest animations) but maybe "animation" would be better? but "video animation" doesn't sound great. Something like "Video advertisements and animations"? "In-game commercials and animations"? First one is basically just as vague, and think I prefer 'advertisement' over commercial, but that may just be me. Anyway, I'm still thinking about it.

Incomplete sources

This is mostly useless so I'm probably never going to go back and do this again, but if you search "Source=ingame" or "Source=in game" on here you will find over 150 files with like "in-game screenshot" or "in-game file" as their source. im guessing these all come from new users, misinformed users or before the file template was a thing. The plan is to stick a {{Incomplete Source}} on all of them, then ask the uploaders in question what their source was where thats sensible (e.g. a screenshot from 2022 at the latest and uploaded by an active user). My eyes hurt from staring at a computer all day though so I Will Not Be Doing That

Promotional characters, Hub NPCs and Miis

The promotional player characters of Splatoon (2015) [1], as well as many hub NPCs across the series, seem to be named after Miis. While these are sort of documented on the FANDOM wiki, they arent documented on MiiWiki. The FANDOM wiki has good comments but it's not good for sourcing (and MiiWiki is a NIWA partner so we NEED to use that), so in order for me to talk about the Miis the Splatoon promotional characters are named after, I need to make the pages for these Miis (at least Kaori and John cmonnnn). I don't have a Wii U so it will be a bit hard to document the important ones (Kaori, John, Rui.. they are all from Wii Sports Club on the Wii U) & I have a Terrible way with words but I will figure something out.

The ones needed:

Promotional Characters in the Splatoon series intro desc

Target draft: User:Cackle/Promotional characters

Promotional characters refer to the characters used in promotional material that are meant to stand in for a player. Typically, these are the Inklings and Octolings present on the box art, amiibo and crossovers. [talk about how there is a main duo and a main character in every game + oe bc idk how to do that right now. also talk about how theres a main 8 characters (oe messes with things here but we'll figure it out)] [talk about inconsistency and how they are not actual characters like the idols but are stand ins for players and can act as a representation of their respective games].

okay nevermind, this stuff falls apart when you have more than 1 character set per line. also probably not screenreader friendly with it being across multiple lines (and screenreaders read HORIZONTALLY, not vertically)

'ud to the arrival and departure of ships to dangerous to swim here dont swim'
obuhj aitokoro

Well Come

A sign found in the background of Bluefin Depot in Splatoon 3. "Well Come" is a minor misspelling of "welcome". The text at the top appears to be mostly gibberish, though "tokoro" means "place" in Japanese.
NEGITORO TANKOU The Japanese name of Bluefin Depot, found on a stand-in by the tourist boat in the background of the same stage. The text is read from right to left.

MALCUS WOLGULL

A ripped paper texture found floating in the background of menus in Splatoon 3. "MALCUS WOLGULL" appears to be derived from "Marcus Worgull", the name of a musician. This seems to be filler text.
OCTO--- NO EHON

T-K- : S-N J--N

TAKO NO EHON OCTALIEN

NENSTE AGE ANIKE!!

The memorable picture book seen in side order. "TAKO NO EHON" roughly translates to "Octopus picture book". "Octalien" is a direct translation of the Japanese name of the Octarians, オクタリアン Okutarian, which is a combination of "Octo" and "Alien". Dashes are use in place of unreadable symbols.

DEKKAI HITUDE NANNDESUYO

Labels found by the exihitions in Umami Ruins. "DEKKAI HITUDE NANNDESUYO" means "It's a big brush" in Japanese, possibly in reference to some art on the wall in this stage that seems to be depicting an ancient squid person with what looks like a large brush, which this label can be found next to. "OSHIRISU NO TENKU" is potentially a reference to the Yugioh card Silfer the Sky Dragon, named Oshirisu no Tenkūryū in Japanese. "NIDANNGUMIZA KOI" translates to "Text column 2 is thick". It's unclear what that text is in reference to. "RAA NOTAI YOSIN HA KAKOII" translates to "Ra, the god of the Sun, is cool", referencing Ra, the Ancient Egyptian god of the Sun.

DEKA IRLMRJ

UNDE RGROUND

A sign found above the entrance to the train station found in Splatoon 3's Inkopolis Square. "DEKA" is likely in reference to Deca Tower, the tower found in Inkopolis Square. "UNDE RGROUND" is referring to the subway in Inkopolis Square being one of underground variety.

NAKANAKA RIPPANA TORUAI DE KONO TODAINI HIMERA RETA
Information boards seen when entering the spawns in Splatoon 3's Bluefin Depot. The text is meaningful Japanese, though due to the quality of the textures it is difficult to read. The text at the top seems to be talking about the rich history of something (presumabley Bluefin Depot) and a connection to octopi. The text at the bottom roughly translates to "Very impressive that _ was hidden in the lighthouse", though the subject of the sentence is unclear. The lighthouse mentioned is visible on another information board like this, and can be seen in the background of Bluefin Depot.
NEGITORO TANKOINO REKINI NI TUITE KOKONI SIRUSITE IKOTOOMO Another information board found in Bluefin Depot. Translates to "Regarding the history of bluefin depot, I hereby declare it an archeological site."

LAN HENDRY K IERAN APTER

A ripped paper texture found floating in the background of menus in Splatoon 3, containing a mixture of random phrases and names. "LAN HENDRY" may be derived the name of an actor, Ian Hendry. Kieran Apter is also the name of a musician, though obscure so it may not be intentional. Dashes represent characters that are hard to make out due to the low texture resolution.
KENTAIKITTOTTENANNOKOTO Text on the bag attatched to Agent 8's ink tank, which explodes when they fail a test. Translates to "What do you mean, 'specimen kit'?". The 'specimen kit' is the name of this exploding bag[1], though the term was never officially translated to English.

ONSEN TO OISII SYOKUZAI MONO

KUSAYA

A poster for Brinewater Springs seen in the stage itself and in Inkopolis Plaza (in landscape format, above the train station). "KUSAYA ONSEN" is the Japanese name of Brinewater Springs, and "SYAKUA. NSEONSAU" seems to be a scrambling of that. "ONSEN TO OISII SYOKUZAI MONO" roughly translates to "Hot springs and tasty ingredients". The little map in the bottom right corner also labels the location with the red dot as "KUSAYA".
