Judd (ジャッジくん, Mr. Judd) is a character in the Splatoon universe.


Judd is a cat who serves as the judge of online matches in the Splatoon series by signifying which team won by holding up a flag. He is notable for being the only land mammal alive in the Mollusc Era, and is revealed through various Sunken Scrolls to be over 10,000 years old, having survived the extinction of humanity thanks to his owner sealing him in a cryogenic capsule and injecting him with an immortality drug. Upon awakening, Judd began judging the Great Turf War and all subsequent Turf Wars.

In Splatoon 2, Li'l Judd was added to hold up the flag of the enemy team. It is revealed via Sunken Scroll that he was born from cloning technology included in Judd's capsule to prevent him from being alone. Various sources reveal that Li'l Judd seeks to usurp Judd's position as Turf War judge.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

Finally, the Mii is shown lifting a Special Flag on Moray Towers, referencing the flags he uses.
