Another meme based on the infamous Splatoon commercial. At the end, the vocalist yells "Splatatatatatatat" until finishing of with "SPLATOON!" It quickly went viral, with some YouTubers uploading loops of the audio that are ten hours long, as well as becoming memetic on Miiverse.
7.9 No Voice Chat
In a similarly unfounded complaint to IGN's 7.8 "too much water" Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire review, many reviewers panned Splatoon for a lack of voice chat, despite the fact that the game is meant to be kid-friendly and a chat would be difficult to moderate. The phrase became memetic on LMR and Miiverse, with 7.9 referring to IGN's review score.
Squidward MemeThe character Squidward from the show SpongeBob SquarePants has become a popular figure in the community, drawing many jokes due to his cephelopodal species. This was especially widespread before and during the SpongeBob vs. Patrick Splatfest, featuring the aforementioned show's main characters. The line "He's Squidward, you're Squidward, I'M SQUIDWARD!" from the SpongeBob episode "Opposite Day" has enjoyed much recognition due to this meme.
Many users like to make puns on squids and ink, as does the game proper, due to the wide, unexplored possibilities for jokes. Inkoming examples inklude such inkredible jokes as the Salty Splatoon (another SpongeBob SquarePants reference), nobody expecting the Spanish Inkquisition, and other jokes that are kraken people up, yet we don't have an Inkling of a clue why.
Miiverse users have taken to making satirical predictions for the themes of upcoming Splatfest events, usually presented in "Next Splatfest: X vs. Y" format. The first known instance of this meme dates to July 5th, 2015. Callie vs Marie did happen, but as the final Splatfest for Splatoon.
