Inklings are the main protagonists of the Splatoon series. They are customizable characters who possess the ability to "splatter" ink and transform into squids to swim through the ink.

Character description

Inklings evolved from squids after rising sea levels killed off the human race. They possess the sentience of humans, but lack bones. They frequently clash with another species known as Octarians.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U

While the Inklings never appeared physically, they can be obtained as trophies after purchasing DLC. Inkling Mii Fighter Costumes were also added as DLC for the Mii Gunner.

They like to octopi their time with frantic, multicolored turf wars, and they won’t miss out on any oppor-tuna-ty to get to the top. And we wouldn’t go so far as to call them cod’s gift to fashion, but check out that fresh style!
