Inklings are a race of half-squid/half-human hybrids and are the main protagonists of the Splatoon video game series. They ink their turf and try to save Inkopolis from the Octarians. Their rivals are none other than the Octolings. The Inkling girl has long tentacle-like hair that goes down to their waist while the Inkling boy's variant is rather shorter. In Splatoon 2, they have more hairstyles.
In Splatoon's single player mode, their Inkling (Agent 3 by Cap'n Cuttlefish) is tasked to bring back the Zapfish and the Great Zapfish, which were all stolen by the Octarians.
The Inklings appear in Super Smash Bros. 4 as DLC costumes and as a trophy. They also appear as costumes in Super Mario Maker and Yoshi's Woolly World. They also appear in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe as playable racers. They are playable fighters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
- While they exist as a costume for the Mii Fighters in Super Smash Bros. 4, they were never released as playable fighters in DLC. However, they were added to the roster in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
- Even though their ancestors were sea creatures, they, however, can't swim in water, as their bodies are composed entirely of ink.
- Canonically, both Agents 3 and 4 are female Inklings, even though the player may choose whichever gender they please when making their character.
- Also, it is stated that Agent 8, the main protagonist of Splatoon 2's Octo Expansion DLC, is canonically female, suggesting that all the agents in the Splatoon series are female, excluding Cap'n Cuttlefish due to him not being an actual agent himself.
