Hello to whoever stumbles upon this userpage! Looks like that's you, kid!
I'm Tom Surtees, a 20-year-old British gaming nerd who just so happens to be a big Splatoon nerd as well.

I've been playing the Splatoon games since June 2015, though I truly got invested in mid-2016 and it grew even further once Splatoon 2 dropped. Main weapons include the Wasabi Splattershot, Enperry Splat Dualies, N-ZAP '89, and Sloshing Machine.

I'm always happy to help with any edits on Inkipedia, especially when it comes to grammatical changes and Splatfest-related topics!

Stay fresh!

Splatfests I participated in

The only Splatfest in Splatoon 1 that I actually participated in was Callie VS Marie, so that game will not be accounted for.

Splatoon 2

Splatfest Result Clout (Normal) Clout (Pro) Reason for choosing team
Cake VS Ice Cream
(July 2017)
Loss N/A N/A Eating my birthday cake 6 weeks prior to the Splatfest being held made me realise how much more appetising cake looks and feels when compared to ice cream.
Mayo VS Ketchup
(August 2017)
Loss N/A N/A Ketchup has always seemed more appealing to me. And also blood ink.
Flight VS Invisbility
(September 2017)
Win N/A N/A Being able to fly has always been a dream of mine, just being able to go freely wherever you want and seeing all the sights.
Front Roll VS Back Roll
(October 2017)
Win N/A N/A It’s been morally wrong for years to hang toilet paper backwards, and I always question people’s minds when I see it. Especially when Nana did it all the time.
Warm VS Cold
(November 2017)
Win N/A N/A This one mainly stems from my own self-restricted diet, but I just feel like having warm breakfast wakes people up better and gives them a better start when compared to cold breakfast.
Film VS Book
(December 2017)
Win N/A N/A I’ve always been more of a film buff, so it was a no-brainer.
Action vs. Comedy
(January 2018)
Loss N/A N/A Comedy movies often seem more cheesy to me, and also the fact that you can get away with having comedy moments in other genres of films.
Gherk-OUT VS Gherk-IN
(February 2018)
Win N/A N/A Well, duh.
Chicken VS Egg
(March 2018)
Loss N/A N/A This was a bit of a hard one to go for, and required a lot of prior research before deciding my team.
Salty VS Sweet
(April 2018)
Loss N/A N/A I don’t see how many people can eat popcorn during a film and not like the taste of it.
Raph VS Leo
(Early May 2018)
Loss N/A N/A Leo has always seemed cooler to me over Raph. Plus that light-blue ink colour is my favourite one yet.
Mikey VS Donnie
(Mid-May 2018)
Win N/A N/A Took a lot of convincing for this one, but I eventually caved and went for the team that seemed to have less popularity.
Raph VS Donnie
(Late May 2018)
Win N/A N/A After Donnie’s first victory, I absolutely had to root for him again!
Pulp VS No-Pulp
(June 2018)
Loss N/A N/A I’ve always seen pulp to be visually disgusting, and my fact still remains. The fact that companies need to SPECIFY “no bits” means that people would go cranky if they got the wrong type of orange juice!
Squid VS Octopus
(July 2018)
Loss N/A N/A This one was honestly a gamble for me, and I would definitely switch to Team Squid if it was ever repeated in some form in Splatoon 3.
Adventure VS Relax
(August 2018)
Win N/A N/A Even though I love the idea of relaxing while on holiday, my choice mainly stems from the fact that my family have often gone on camping holidays, as well as how I view every holiday as an adventure due to the excitement I get when visiting new places overnight.
Retro VS Modern
(September 2018)
Loss 86123 18190 This was another gamble for me, and probably the one I regret the most. I mainly picked Team Retro based on the fact that retro clothing seemed to be more colourful than a lot of modern clothes, and how I get nostalgic for old games I used to play when I was younger.
Trick VS Treat
(October 2018)
Win 173600 5870 Does anyone ever actually go for the “trick” when they answer the door for trick-or-treaters? Like, what good comes out of it?
Eat It VS Save It
(November 2018)
Loss 34860 N/A Honestly another gamble for me, and was the Splatfest I leaned closest to one team before changing my mind and choosing the other team. This was also the only Splatfest where I didn't achieve the King title due to being at MCM Comic Con for the Splatoon 2 UK Championship 2018 Grand Finals.
Hero VS Villain
(December 2018)
Loss 26132 22070 I strongly based my decision on the Smash characters represented, though looking back I do agree with the fact that villains are often more interesting characters.
Fam VS Friend
(January 2019)
Loss 83167 5710 At the time of this Splatfest, I’d never been the type of person to spend long nights out with friends, so therefore I was more keen on the idea of spending Xmas with family.
Pancake VS Waffle
(February 2019)
Loss 59232 9970 Pancakes have always looked more appealing to me, especially British ones.
Knight VS Wizard
(March 2019)
Loss 117730 5830 I had very little familiarity with the Harry Potter series at the time of this Splatfest (wouldn't get into it until July 2022), which I assume was why Team Wizard was so popular in the first place.
Hare VS Tortoise
(April 2019)
Loss 63957 N/A I gambled again on this one, as I mainly went for what I assumed at the time was the less popular team. Plus I kinda thought that the story of the hare and the tortoise would simply repeat itself with Tortoise winning.
Time Travel VS Teleportation
(May 2019)
Win 60669 5510 Time travel always seems like it mucks up people’s timelines and can have consequences on today’s society. Teleportation is something that I’ve personally always wanted, as I can just get somewhere I wanna be without delay!
Kid VS Grown-Up
(June 2019)
Win 60677 26470 Physically being a kid only lasts so long, but being a grown-up can last for you until you perish, and there’s always time to ACT like a kid whenever you feel like it! Oh and also Judd supremacy.
Chaos VS Order
(July 2019)
Loss 326692 17160 While I still partly believe the world should always change, I’m a bit of a technology buff. Plus I wanted to show my support for Marina!
Mayo VS Ketchup (Rematch)
(May 2020)
Win 162131 3810 I’d always wanted to get my revenge on Team Mayo because the results for the original Splatfest were segregated for each region rather than combined, and no other Splatfest aside from Pokémon Red vs. Pokémon Blue in Splatoon 1 had done this.
Chicken vs. Egg (Rematch)
(August 2020)
Loss 206169 4120 Revenge was needed on Team Chicken too!
Trick VS Treat (Rematch)
(October 2020)
Win 177871 7420 Same reason as the original Splatfest. Plus it was one of my favourites back then!
Super Mushroom VS Super Star
(January 2021)
Loss 154549 20940 Super Mushrooms only seem to be the barrier to getting ACTUAL power-ups, despite how iconic it is. Super Stars may be brief, but they pack a punch every time!

13 wins - 18 losses

Non-European Splatfests if I'd played in them (WIP)

Bold indicates the team I would've chosen.

Splatfest Reason for choosing team
Sweater VS Sock
(December 2017) USA
You can often hide other shirts underneath the sweater if it turns out to be itchy. Plus the sweater actually fits the holiday mood a lot more than socks do!
Hello Kitty VS Cinnamoroll
(Mid-May 2018) Japan
The only Sanrio character I'd ever had any sort of connection to was Hello Kitty. Plus she's without a doubt the most iconic of them all, especially outside Japan!
No Pineapple VS Pineapple
(June 2019) Japan
Anything with pineapple in it sounds disgusting to me, simples.

Splatoon 3

Splatfest Result Title Conch Shells Total Clout 10x Victories 100x/333x Victories Splatfest Power Most Used Weapon(s) Reason for choosing team
Rock VS Paper VS Scissors
(August 2022)
Win Rock Ruler +1 N/A 100K+ 2/5 N/A N/A S3 Weapon Main N-ZAP '85.png N-ZAP '85
S3 Weapon Main Splat Dualies.png Splat Dualies
People always fear Rock as it's subconsciously the first one they think of when playing Rock-Paper-Scissors. In addition, using a fist to physically "attack" someone using Scissors feels satisfying. Also the blue ink.
Gear VS Grub VS Fun
(September 2022)
Win Gear Ruler +5 47 367321 (Open)
7229 (Pro)
0/1 1/2 1921.3 S3 Weapon Main Sloshing Machine.png Sloshing Machine It's the most strategic option for when you're on a deserted island, and I like to be among strategic minds. It'll allow you to make camps and obtain/grow more food, too! And also I kinda gave into peer pressure since lots of my friends also chose Team Gear.
Grass VS Fire VS Water
(November 2022)
Loss Fire Ruler +4 28 246158 (Open)
10118 (Pro)
3/6 N/A 1696.4 S3 Weapon Main Splat Dualies.png Splat Dualies I feel like the Fire element can create the most fear amongst those who come across it, and the red & orange colours help cement this in people's minds. Not only does this make you look like a badass, but combine that with the fiery powers of Charizard, Incineroar, and Fuecoco, and you've got a full team of powerhouses!
Spicy VS Sweet VS Sour
(January 2023)
Win Sweet Ruler +6 33 107316 (Open)
38419 (Pro)
3100 (Tricolor)
4/5 N/A 2128.0 S3 Weapon Main Tentatek Splattershot.png Tentatek Splattershot It just seems like spicy and sour food both give you pain in your mouth, and that's no good! Food should be enjoyable, not painful!
Dark Chocolate VS Milk Chocolate VS White Chocolate
(February 2023)
Loss Milk Chocolate Ruler +7 43 340405 (Open)
11069 (Pro)
77301 (Tricolor)
6/8 0/1 1694.5
S3 Weapon Main Aerospray MG.png Aerospray MG
S3 Weapon Main Splash-o-matic.png Splash-o-matic
My heart has always been with Milk Chocolate, and always will be. While I at least understand why people would like Dark Chocolate, I just cannot get behind those who prefer White Chocolate, as I feel like it goes against everything chocolate stands for in both colour and taste.

S2 Splatfest results if they used S1's scoring system (WORK IN PROGRESS)

The percentages for "Solo/Normal" and "Team/Pro" are each multiplied by 3, which gives us a point range similar to the Splatfest scoring system in Splatoon 1. In addition, the results are rounded to the nearest full number. As an example, the results for Cake VS Ice Cream would be as follows:

24% Votes 76%
49% x3 Solo 51% x3
53%x3 Team 47% x3

Teams denoted in bold were the actual winners, while teams in italics denote the winners if the old scoring system were used.
