    Yes, this. As well as the other post I said this to, haha. You still get the loot when it's all over and it's almost the same for both teams, who why get salty over who won? Get salty about all-sniper team comps and poor Shifty Station setups instead! :D

    I can't agree with that statement, her name in Japanese is Hime (which is just princess), so a bratty personality is to be expected. Even then her brattiness is honestly just being a childish adult. When she loses a Splatfest I'm super doubtful she'll be the type to say sorry you were right, that's just not the character that was written for her.

    If we're to talk about crapping on someone, early game Marina was an absolute headache towards Pearl, which was nothing like her Japanese counterpart.

    Anywho, I think Marina hasn't had any bad picks; I liked Invisibility more than Flight. Werewolves vs. Vampires was a hard choice; I just wish the community would quit with the mob mentality and pick what they liked rather than what idol has a better probability of winning or who the representative is.

    I came here to post that I've never understood why so many people act like every Splatfest theme is basically just Callie vs Marie/Pearl vs Marina. Glad I'm not the only one who chooses what team they're on based on which side they like the most without being character bias. If I can't choose, I usually just pick which team has the ink colour I like more.

    I like both Pearl and Marina, I choose the side myself, not because one of the hosts are defending it.

    I will admit I was one of those people that was all crazy for Marina before release, but now that the game's come out I'd say I like both of them about the same. Pearl just cracks me up with her cringey raps when she wins a Splatfest, I love it. In all, we need to focus on more that just a character's breasts.

    The one time I felt Splatfest was extremely even is the time we get 3-0'd. What is going on....

    I might be a minority in this, but I actually kind of like Marina's somewhat passive-aggressive attitude. It gets a little irritating that she is always taking jabs at Pearl, but if we look back at the first game, it was rare that Callie ever really said anything back to Marie's taunts except during Splatfests. To me, this is more of the same. That could be construed as a bad thing, but it doesn't bother me too much all in all. Pearl and Marina still work well together, even with all of their contrasting points. I happen to like Marina more, but she is not without her faults. Just like Pearl is not without her strengths. There is no harm in liking either one of them unless it's to the detriment of the other or towards the fan base.

    I'm not sure why people are saying Marina is the nastier one. She takes jabs at Pearl, true, but Pearl chucks childish insults at Marina all the time, too. Pearl still comes across as entitled and immature, but neither one has the moral high ground.

    I'm just disappointed there was no toilet paper rap.

    It's okay. We are all entitled to embarrassing ourselves from time to time. In my case, I call it my average Tower Control session.

    I don't really see that. Only during Splatfests do the two of them exchange jabs, but that's kinda the point of Splatfests and that's the same as in Splatoon 1. In the normal announcements, the basic format is that Pearl says something kinda stupid with Marina commenting on it.

    Honestly, I haven't liked most of the options for either side in a majority of the Splatfests so far, so I usually just go on the side where most of my friends choose. But I don't see it as Pearl vs. Marina, just X vs. Y. Just sort of bad luck that Marina had been getting the short end of the stick, but it isn't the end of the world.

    Youre SUPPOSED to pick the team you want to win, not be bias and choose whatever your favorite idol girl team is. It shouldnt MATTER which idol girl is on which team..but people are dumb i guess

    There's no right criteria/"answer" for how one should pick their Splatfest side. Aside from themes and which character is tied to which side, I know people that pick based on things like ink color (white ink especially), what they perceive as the "likely to win" side (i.e. Pearl in the recent trends) to even flipping a coin for it.

    Yeah it makes the most sense to support whichever cause you feel most strongly about, but some people could care less and just want to enjoy night maps/farm Super Sea Snails/don't care that much and throw their vote away on insignificant preferences.

    Some examples from the wiki:
    • “Look at me! I'm Marina! BLAH BLAH BLAH!”
    • "Wanna know the key to winning here? Make sure Marina is on the other team.”
    There are a few more like that. Marina does have more, since she gets the punchlines, but Pearl has them too.

    I think people are really overthinking Pearl's and Marina's jabs at each other. You gotta remember something, they're friends! Friends pick on each other ALL THE TIME. It's not them being mean, just them poking fun at one another. Me and my best friend ridicule each other like nuts. It's what friends do and why I can believe Pearl and Marina are seriously close friends.

    Exactly, me and my friends do the same thing all the time and all in good fun.

    I just assumed it was just the same case here between Pearl and Marina since the start, I never really took their jabs at one another seriously and thought it was just all in good fun.

    I'm a firm believer that you should pick simply based on what team you prefer. I've seen so many people who are ride or die for Marina and honestly? Wait till the last splatfest guys, you'll have your Pearl Vs Marina splatfest in two years.

    Quit trying to rush it. :p

    You must not forget that Japan is different... Mayo vs. Ketchup splatfest? Pearl got the popularity point in Japan. Also: Marina won again in the Agility vs. Endurance splatfest in Japan.
