* {{Foil}}: To Judd. Both Tartar and Judd belonged to a brilliant scientist who intended for them to serve the dominant race who would rule over the ruins of humanity. But while Judd loves Inklings (and later, Octolings) and loyally serves them as an authority figure, Tartar despises them and wants to drive them to extinction to create a superior race.

* VerbalBackspace: Marina whenever she accidentally eludes to being an Octoling. During the Christmas Splatfest announcement, Marina says the Octoling equivalent of Squidmas (Octivus), before hastily adding Squidmas to her point. During the 1st Anniversary Squid vs. Octopus announcement, she tries to shift gears after her gushing about octopuses has her shout that one could be hiding in plain sight in front of the viewer.

** In keeping with the aquatic/seafood naming convention, Tartar is a reference to tartar sauce. Tartar sauce is a chunky mixture of various ingredients with a somewhat thick consistency, much like the primordial ooze Commander Tartar has been brewing out of test subjects.

* BookDumb: Not the brightest cephalopod species to walk on land. Most of them have less-than-adequate mathematic skills, don't venture beyond places they already know, and believe that Octolings are just Inklings with exotic hairstyles. Doesn't mean they aren't good at what they do best: battling and looking fashionably fresh.

Added DiffLines:

* LittleBitBeastly: Inklings are among the most human-ish lifeforms out of all the sea life denizens, with only the Octolings rivaling that status.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Metamorphosis}}: At the beginning of their lifecycle, an Inkling starts off as a little baby squid. Gradually as they get older, the squid slowly becomes more humanoid until they reach age of fourteen, settling down with the appearance of a [[LittleBitBeastly human with squid-like features]]. They are the trope image for reason.
