    1. Yeah, I find it crazy if only for a single level that's a pain to go through with certain weapons. Platform Madhouse's name is way too apt. If it were any tamer, though, I'd call it a cakewalk.
    2. You meant 1.5x tickets? As far as I know, you only get one XP x2 ticket for beating Hero Mode. All the others you have to get through Salmon Run. (And you still might get 1.5x tickets anyway.)
    3. Same, if only because it wasn't a super-fest of platforming challenges like the original's Hero Mode finale was. Callie just being there for the background didn't help much either.

    I've been playing Octo Canyon for a while now, and I've been wondering something. Why are the Octarians as dumb as mud? Does DJ Octavio not want them to get too smart? Or could it be he tried using Octolings more extensively at first and some of them became uncontrollable without Hypno Shades? Because it seems the only things normal Octarians know how to do are shoot Inklings on sight.

    I have this theory that Octarian society is extremely militaristic with all of their children enrolled at a young age in training programs for serving the army. We know they have formal schooling like this, as it's mentioned that Marina has skipped grades in these programs. They may force all of their youth (or perhaps just the girls) to enroll in the army upon reaching adolescence (they may also become engineers and the like, like Marina was). Octarian society is probably filled with anti-inkling propaganda using their loss in the Great Turf War as fuel for their youth to want to enlist and kill inklings (the manga has enemy octolings with spoken dialogue implying that they were taught about inklings and the war). I don't think they're necessarily stupid as opposed to just not being taught about inklings' battle habits the right way.

    Then the Calamari Inkantation happened. The octolings close enough in proximity to the fight were affected in a way that undid years of being raised to hate inklings and want to fight them. Perhaps seeing their dictator (as Octavio probably is) defeated gave them realizations about their own society and how repressive it is. My other theory is that they're somehow hypnotized/brainwashed at a certain age to become loyal soldiers to Octavio and the Inkantation has mystical properties (I believe there's a sunken scroll that states that it's an old, old song that definitely has some mystical **** to it) that somehow undid that.

    The enemy octolings in Splatoon 2 are wearing headgear that's different from what they wore in the first game, which looks more like sunglasses than pressurized eye armor. In the final boss fight, Callie has been brainwashed by a pair of sunglasses (the hypno shades), which look pretty similar to the ones the octolings are wearing. I think every enemy octoling in Splatoon 2 is also wearing hypno shades, probably because Octavio wanted to ensure that they'd stay loyal to him were another incident like the Inkantation to occur. Straight-up brainwashing them is definitely more powerful than simply teaching them that inklings are bad and they should fight them. But then again, this doesn't explain why the sanitized octolings are wearing those sunglasses in the Deepsea Metro, but we know so little about them in general that I don't think it's enough to make this theory fall apart.

    So yeah. Those are my theories about the enemy octolings and such. sorry for the wall of text lol

    I personally have a theory regarding the sanitized octarians and the Kamabo Co. testing facility itself. In all of the testing chambers, enemies glitch out of existence when defeated, and Marina comments that the octarians aren't showing any life-signs. Many test chambers are modeled off places in Inkopolis or, in one case, Octo Valley. I believe that this is because all test chambers are simply computer simulations, with the exception of the thang stations. Commander Tartar claims that his goal is to create the ultimate life-form, and he does so by blending together successful test subjects, such as Agent 8. By putting applicants through a series of tests, Kamabo Co. analyzes their patterns and behaviors and creates life-like simulations of them for future test subjects to fight against, while still being able to use them for the primordial ooze. That would explain why the enemies in the Deepsea Metro are noticeably tougher and smarter than those in Octo Valley. The only major problem with this theory is Agent 3, who just got a glob of sanitized ink on their head instead of being smoothie'd.

    Sanitized Octarians could also have been covered in the ooze, thus sanitizing them, and the ones who got smoothied were just used to make such a thing?

    I would like to point out that it seems weird how the octostomp returns. Sheldon litterly pointed out how he thought agent 3 took it down.

    Oh and also
