    You can't forget the cute face they make when carrying the Rainmaker.

    Amount of moe in here is too damn high. I prefer when girl inkling look more badass.

    I see the sarcasm was lost
    Gotta love the internet

    I think that the majority of players on Splatoon are male, and would naturally want to be a female character
    Sort of like any MMORPG player that's male. A few of those female characters in those games are actually male people in real life

    So maybe it's not the physical difference between the two Inklings, but the gender associated with them? That's what I think anyway

    Ermame is the best. I'll be developing his style and mix mine for my new artstyle when I get my drawing tablet. Last fanart I'll share, I happen to think this one is appropriate for this time of the year.

    yeah, it's definitely that. this happens in pretty much any online game where you can choose between male and female. especially if you can customize said character. sure people can go on and on about the female inklings having a better design etc, (well they're design is great) but the male is basically the same with different hair, masculine physique and some different win/lose animations (i'm honestly not a fan of the slosher win animation for males, but i don't use sloshers anyway). people just like having a cute character to look at when they play, and male characters are rarely considered "cute" (not never, but rarely). i personally love playing with a character that represents how much i look like in real life. male, dark skin, male voice (woomy is overrated please don't kill me). i don't have a ponytail, but it disappears with a lot of headgear anyways, so that also works. plus i think the ponytail looks great. i feel like it's just as creative as the inkling's hair. it really just falls under what you like.

    Sorry, but even when they're badass, they're still adorable. :p

    I'm female, but I always choose a female avatar whenever I'm playing Pokemon or Splatoon. My brother usually plays as females in games like Fallout, but for me, I always choose females. :p

    Fun fact: This is actually done by the creator of the Squid Girl manga & anime, Masahiro Anbe. Still a cute piccy, though. <3

    Burn the Heretic! Though just about everything the girls say is cute sounding. Woomy was merely the chosen one.

    You need to increase your Squee tolerance. You can show me a million pictures of cute things and I'll never get tired of them.

    Anyway, I like how this thread went from why inkling girls are more popular, to why they are so cute. XD

    that is the reason as to why they're more popular. because they're cuter in a sense.

    I don't mind them being drawn as sugarly sweet. Sometimes I keep thinking that despite being all around badass, they still have a cute sweet side to them. You know, being all moe and whatnot. :p

    Don't go to my DA page then. There's way too many cute stuff in my favorites whether it's from Splatoon, Zelda, or Pokemon. XD

    I know, it's great, isn't it? :p

    I think only the girls do that smile with the Rainmaker.

    Also, i think that if they gave us hairstyles, a lot of people might switch.

    I personally like the girl's current hairstyle due to how long and floppy it is. I kinda sound creepy here, but it's honestly how I feel about it.

    Can we appreciate how adorable the girls are here?

    These are probably the best Splatfest pics for me. :p

    Sorry but...

    Come on, we're in a community mostly made of boys (who isn't) of varying ages and when we have a female option in game, I mean....

    You know right? That said, I've been shifting to male ones recently.

    the male inklings do it too. tested it out yesterday. you just never see it because you're always seeing the character's back. (i'd show you screenshots, but rainmaker isn't on at the moment. will edit them in later)

    Because of the longer hair
    And what that means is
    I'm a male who's attracted to girls with long hair, so I if I play as a girl, I get to see pretty hair more often than the weird ponytail thing

    EDIT: How the heck did I even find this thread the last post was in December. I clicked on it then went to youtube for half an hour and remembered about this and came back so I have no memory of what I did to find this thread.

    Since the game doesn't lock your gender, I alternate every few sessions.

    But I have a preference for the inkling girl for reasons others have already stated. Though I can hang with the inkling boy design depending on the outfit I choose and makes him look less like an elf.
