Inkling (インクリング, Inkling) is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Although the default form is female, both male and female forms of this character are playable. They were first characters that were suggested to appear in the then unnamed Ultimate in its first teaser trailer at the end of the March 8th, 2018 Nintendo Direct, and officially announced as a newcomer in Ultimate's E3 2018 trailer , alongside Daisy and Ridley. Inkling is classified as fighter #64.
Yuki Tsujii voices both genders of Inkling, via voice clips from Splatoon.
How to unlock
Complete one of the following:
With the exception of the third method, Inkling must then be defeated on Moray Towers.
Lands with a splash of ink in squid form before transforming back, then flaps both arms excitedly before drawing the Splattershot. This is the Inkling's entrance animation from Octo Valley in Splatoon.
The Inkling Boy has an altered standing stance, where he does not shake his hips as much as the Inkling Girl. However, this does not apply when holding a small item.
Classic Mode: An Inkredible Journey
Inkling fights fighters with differently colored alternate costumes, referencing the concept of Turf War from the Splatoon games.
Note: Every stage except for the Bonus Stage plays a track from the Splatoon universe, no matter what universe it originates from. The boss battle against Marx also plays Calamari Inkantation instead of his standard boss theme.
Role in World of Light
The Inklings (both female and male) were among the fighters that were summoned to fight the army of Master Hands.
During the opening cutscene, the Inklings were present when Galeem unleashed his beams of light. They decided to each hide in a puddle of their own ink; however, this proved ineffective when the beams of light destroyed the cliff they were on. Both were then placed under Galeem's imprisonment alongside the rest of the fighters, except for Kirby.
In the mode proper, the female Inkling can be fought in a city area, in a space that clearly is Moray Towers.
All of the Inkling's alternate costumes feature wearable gear that can be found in Splatoon and Splatoon 2. Each of the costumes has a different Ink color, which matches the color of their hair.
