I don't know where to put this thread, so feel free to move it to a more general Splatoon section, but I just wanted to make a thread specifically to remind us of the lore that we have gotten, here are a few to get this started:

The Splatoon's version of the watermelon (I think it was called the Squid Melon?) can actually have its insides change color if it absorbs ink.

Inklings love fruits, and those said fruits are grown straight from Kelp Dome.

The Salmonids' ultimate goal in life is to be eaten and are not afraid of dying.

The fishing lure from Agent 3's armor (and its replica) is designed to attract the opposite sex.

I think there's a problem since I basically knew all those fact, I need to get a life outside of video game lore.
Anyway, here's some lore-based speculations.

---

Agent 4 is a "second generation Turf War Kid", so it can be assumed that public Ink Sports games were created a bit before Splatoon (the first game)'s events take place. That would make sense, since what better time to start the series than at the start of the idea?

There don't seem to be any child labor laws in the Splatoon universe. Grizzco is only one thing, but Squid Sisters dialogue is a whole 'nother level. Not only did they supposedly work at Walleye Warehouse at some point before the age of seventeen, but there's a line of dialogue for Piranha Pit where Callie says something like "I used to work here over the summer when I was a kid".

When you think about the Splatfest law Pearl mentions where your not allowed to agree with the losing team's philosophy, it may or may not be illegal to be friends with Callie. No kidding she's so depressed in the Squid Sisters Stories.

In every Roller victory animation, your ink/octoling throws their weapon onto their shoulder. The speed of which they do it is exactly the same, whether you're using an Inkbrush or a Dynamo. The swings are about as fast as a Splat Roller, so it's possible that all Rollers have the ability to be as fast as a Splat Roller (Carbons and brushes are simply lighter).

Here are a few more:

Inklings are too lazy to count their change, so they instead donate that change.

Inklings can also be easily distracted from their jobs by something they find interesting.

Octarian tech is ahead of everybody else by at least 15 years.

The Octosamurai is a big fan of Callie.

Jelfonzo split off from Jelonzo.

The Professor is also Judd's former owner.

DJ Octavio has a humanoid form, confirming that he's an Octoling.

Marina helped invent the flooder when she was 13.

There are three characters who are confirmed to be humanoid cuttlefish (the "cuttlefish idols" and a random kid in the Splatoon 2 art book) and three characters who are likely cuttlefish (Callie, Marie, and Cap'n Cuttlefish). Humanoid cuttlefish look very similar to their squid counterparts, with two main differences: Their ears are more thin and they all have gray tentacles (the shade varies) with the only color on their tips. Some but not all have pupils shaped like a four-pointed star.

There were likely some Octolings who were free before the Inkantation. Warabi, the new partner of the Squid Squad bass player and member of the band Diss-Pair, is apparently the child of two famous actors, and he's an Octoling.

More lore coming your way:

Pearl's height is a result of an electrocution stunting her growth, this explains why her voice sounds childlike despite being 21 years old.

Salmonids trade with the Octarians, the Salmonids give Power Eggs to the Octarians as payment for Octo tech, that's why there are Boss Salmonids and contraptions that are similar to what is found in Octo Valley and Octo Canyon.

Mr. Grizz might not be a real person but could instead be a series of recordings. This is actually supported in-game by the fact his tip for a Boss Salmonid targeting you hasn't been updated to include Octoling and instead just says Inkling.

Octarians have their own culture, depicting different hobbies like dancing like in the 70's human time or even watching circus performances.

There is a room with baby turtles in Ancho-V Games where the employees go to feel better.
