|A Splattershot set remade by Sheldon. The well-balanced main weapon is complemented by easy-to-use bombs. Really shines when used to hold the front lines against enemy assaults.

- The European Nintendo Direct incorrectly showed the Wasabi Splattershot's special weapon as the Inkzooka instead of the Inkstrike. That wouldn't be allowed, because the Inkzooka had already been taken by the Tentatek Splattershot.
- This weapon was absent from Splatoon 2, likely in favor of the Kensa Splattershot being the new third variant of the Splattershot.
Wasabi Splattershot is a combination of Splatter (as well as Splat) and Shot. It also has the word Wasabi as a prefix to differentiate it from the Splattershot and the Tentatek Splattershot. The word Wasabi most likely refers to its color scheme.
Its Japanese name, スプラシューターワサビ Supurashūtā Wasabi, is a combination of either Splat or Splash, and Shooter. It contains the word "Wasabi" for the same reasons as its English name.
