A 14 Year Old (15 in Season 3 and 4) Inkling from an unknown town. He traveled to Inkopolis in hopes of joining the Major Divisions of Turf Wars.

However, they become great friends (Though they don't go any further than friends) after a while and they both eventually join the team. She's more determined than Evan and sometimes unforgiving. However, she's nice when she needs to be. Her character design is based off of the Inkling girl from Splatoon
Iris Splatoon

Season 3 design

Evan's rival in Season 3 and a part of 4. She is cunning and is the MVP of Evan and Karma's team. However, Evan's sudden rise has created tensions between the two. Evan, Karma and her have many battles during the various Splatfests before she eventually teams with them during the Splatfest to decide the fate of the Inklings and Octolings. After that, the two seem to have silent respect for each other.

Video Game Continuation

Toei approached Vision studios to make a game based off of the final arc of Splatoon in late 2015. The game was released on December 9th 2016 as Splatoon: Winner Takes All to mixed to positive reviews. Vision stated later that they are thinking of continuing the story in a bunch of video game sequels.


The series managed to slightly popularize Sports anime in America. It was very popular in Japan, even rivaling the Pokemon anime in popularity.


  • Evan was originally intended to have dark skin. However, this was changed for absolutely no reason.
