Inkling () is a starting newcomer in the game Super Smash Bros. Universe. They represent the Splatoon franchise, and use various weapons and attacks from the said title. The player has the option to switch between both the Male and Female versions of the Inklings with each gender having their own set of colors. The orange female Inkling is the first default one while the blue male Inkling is the second default one.



Like the previous titles Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/Nintendo 3DS, Universe features custom movesets, however some of the options are complete changes compared to just modified variations of the standard specials.

Normal Attacks

  • Neutral Attack - The Inkling shoots a glob of ink that arcs downward similar to Link's arrows. It can be rapid-fired. All globs of ink can be eliminated by attacking them, and can also disappear after a set amount of time. Globs slightly reduce their opponents' movement speed and it increases own speed.

  • Up tilt - The Inkling makes an upward tentacle swipe.

Smash Attacks

  • Forward smash - The Inkling shoots a sniper rifle forward towards the ground. The scope moves away from the Inkling along the ground as it is charged.
  • Up smash - The Inkling fires a paint mortar upward before coming back down. Similar to Snake's U-Smash.
  • Down smash - The Inkling fires a bazooka downward to splatter paint on both sides of the character.
