The Inklings are the characters which players take control of in Splatoon. They appear in Super Smash Bros. Supernova as playable characters, marking their first appearance in the Super Smash Bros. series. When there is ink on the ground, they are capable of using their down special to vanish from sight for a short while and move very quickly; however, the ink itelf doesn't last too long.
