Splatoon

  • There are multiple times where ink is used as a stand-in for blood. Notable examples being the inklings exploding into splats of opposing ink when splatted, as well as Octarian bosses gushing out fountains of ink when their tentacles are destroyed.
  • When discussing Walleye Warehouse, sometimes you get this exchange;
    Callie: Over in a quiet corner of the warehouse, two young Inklings are about to meet their destin-
    Marie: BATTLING! They're battling, aren't they?!
    • It's even more blatant in the European localization:
      Callie: Off in a remote corner of the warehouse, two young Inklings are...
      Marie: BATTLING!
  • Some of the Splatfest announcements (particularly the American ones) can get a little suggestive. Marie referring to hot dogs as "cylinders of meat" might have been accidental, but there's nothing ambiguous about her response when Callie makes a reference to "plundering booty" while introducing Pirates vs. Ninjas.
    Marie: Whoa there, Callie. Let's keep it E for Everyone.

  • The Japanese name of the Octobrush is the "Hokusai", named after Ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai. One of Hokusai's best known paintings, and the one most strongly connected to cephalopods, is "The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife" which is known for...being rather erotic.
  • The title of "Ink Me Up" can be read as suggestive.
    • The original Japanese title of the song more or less so: "Kimi-iro ni somete" translates to "Dye me with your color."

Splatoon 2

  • Possibly unintentional, but Flow, the owner of the hat shop, in her introduction is considered by the squids to be their "crazy old aunt". While that in itself is innocent, it's pretty common to assign older people somebody has a close or caring relationship with as "aunt" or "uncle", that would still make her "aunt flow", a metaphor for a woman's menstrual cycle.
  • Marina’s reasoning for why she would choose invisibility over flight includes the line, "With invisibility, you could spy on people while they’re... inking their Splat Zone." This particular one also doubles as Ho Yay.

  • During the Japan-only "Flower vs Dumpling" Splatfest, Marina tells Pearl "Senpai will be in charge of flowers and I'll be in charge of things that you stuff into yourself!". Pearl lampshades the entendre.
  • One of the chat logs in Octo Expansion has Pearl threatening that if anyone tries to harm Marina, she'll "cut a fish!"
  • Another chat log from Octo Expansion has Pearl mention a song she wrote before Off the Hook called "#$@%* Dudes Be #$@%* Sleepin'", which the stations refused to play "for obvious reasons". If you listen carefully to the demo's sound file in the log, you can hear a prolonged Sound-Effect Bleep.
  • Splatoon 2 manages to slip in a Panty Shot joke by sticking a panties-shaped decal on the underside of the Octostamp DX.
