I calculated how tall Inklings are, and they're tiny!

    i think this is about right, because there's a picture my friend sent me of an octoling next to what looks like a door, but it's much much bigger than the octoling, so i think you're about right

    Actually using the sparrows is a pretty good idea. It usually takes a species a lot longer than that to make any significant changes (such as a major difference in body size).

    Provided that the birds actually are sparrows (They might be a different kind of bird) then using the sparrows would give you an extremely accurate result (I'd run the numbers myself but I'm too lazy).

    It's floating around—I'll try to track it down—but there is official art with the height of Pearl and Marina. Pearl being under five feet and Marina being no taller than 5'11" in height. That would leave Callie and Marie somewhere inbetween them as Pearl usually refers to Marina as "freakishly tall."

    As for the sizes of most objects, I think that's due to there being multiple sentient sea-life coming in a variety of heights. Though that still doesn't explain the size of Judd and sparrows. ¬¬;

    Hmm final boss of Octo as scale?

    That is a national landmark after all. It is obviously not a small replica so that means it is the regular sized real one.

    That dare I say, also gives us a Place of refrence as to the city's location on Earth. I have never been to said landmark, and while it may not be exact scaling (likely is larger IRL?) I think it's safe to say they are at least people sized.

    We are also assuming they built the skateparks and such, that we fight in. Seeing the ending, I don't think they did. I think those are human structures still remaining. If the landmark can be kept in tact under water.

    Found the Off the Hook pic from the Nintendolife site. It's part of the Splatoon 2 art book.

    Their heights, can be rounded up to 5'10" and 4'9".

    ...So most squids are actually similar in size to us. Interesting...
    What would be the n-zap’s size, in comparison?

    they are about half the size of a base of a blender, according to the Splatoon 2 octo expansion. the base of a blender is one of the four thangs. sorry for spoilers

    wow that's a really big height difference. not sure where the op in that post got the measurements, but i feel like the comparison between agent 4 and marie might be a bit more accurate, like the photo in this article.

    Those obviously aren't human blenders. They were definitely modified to be able to be produced, plus the lack of a plug and the presence of the stepping platform that raises you up to the blade.

    I say the Splat 2 art book, being (as TV Tropes would say) "word of God", pretty much kills any theories about inklings being super tiny.

    The only issue with the theory is that relies entirely on the fact the N'Zap from our ****ty universe and the N'Zap from the Splatoonverse having the same dimensions. Aside from that, I do think it makes sense for Inklings and Octolings to be tiny, considerably smaller than humans.

    You can't say that, we have Twinkies, Cheesecake, Dunkaroos, Goldfish, and Sporks.
