A Wii Remote Plus

The Wii Remote is the main controller for the Nintendo Wii, that can also be used for the Wii U. It has an extremely small usage in Splatoon's Battle Dojo.


The Wii Remote is a controller that heavily utilises motion controls. It's rectangular in shape and has many familiar buttons such as the Button1 Plus.png and Button1 Minus.png buttons. Certain Wii U games can only use the Wii remote for multiplayer. There is also the alternative Wii Classic Controller and its replacement the Wii Classic Controller Pro for more traditional gaming, which can be used by plugging them into a Wii Remote. An accessory called the Wii Motion Plus was released, allowing more complex motion controls. The Wii Remote was replaced by the Wii Remote Plus, which had the Motion Plus accessory built in.

Battle Dojo

Pro Controller + Wii Remote Plus Combo

The Player must plug a Wii Classic Controller or Wii Classic Controller Pro into a Wii Remote in order to use it as a controller for Battle Dojo.

As an easter egg, Wii Remote matches can also be played with a combination of the Wii U Pro Controller, Wii Classic Controller or Wii Classic Controller Pro and a Wii Remote Plus or Wii Remote with a Wii MotionPlus accessory, which was hinted at in the 26th Sunken Scroll (see gallery). This allows the player using the controller to have motion controls. To perform this, the player must hold down on the Button1 DPad.png, hold down Button1 B.png, and press Button1 ZL.png and Button1 ZR.png as described on the Splatoon Tumblr, Live from Squid Research Lab.


  • Motion controls: By tilting the Wii Remote up, down, left, and right, players are able to change their Inkling's view and aim.
