I started using this username way back in 2008 when I first registered on this wonderfully (now defunct) site called Quizilla. The Sacred part is because of this wonderful anime character:



The Warrior part is because of the game Soul Calibur 3 which I was playing very heavily at the time. One of the Character Creator jobs is called Warrior :)

My inkling wears the School Outfit (the entire set), SO i just thought, "I like Schoolhouse Rock, and I like Splatoon, so why not Schoolhouse Squid?" however since it was too long for the switch, my nickname is SHSquid.

Ah, yes. I remember Schoolhouse Rock. Sometimes "The Great American Melting Pot" gets stuck in my head tbh, as well as the bill song. :p I think I remember watching it both at home and at school, but it's been years.

My Switch username is Sunset, I tend to put "sunset" in my username anyway, and I'm colorful. (I think. :p) Also takes inspiration from Inkopolis' Japanese name, High-Color City.

Well, my name is Kat and for the squiddy part, I wanted my name to sound like 'kitty kat' but in... squid version if that makes sense?? Hence the name SquiddyKat. I used to be SquidKat but I thought ehh... that names pretty ordinary. SquiddyKat is my Splatoon version of kitty kat ^-^

this is an old username i used everywhere, i just liked how it sounded. i took it from the phrase "wink out" which i think i originally saw as someone else's username. i'm a THIEF! might change my username eventually

Because music is my life force, sometimes the only thing keeping me from- from dying. and octaves are:

  • a series of eight notes occupying the interval between (and including) two notes, one having twice or half the frequency of vibration of the other.
  • a poem or stanza of eight lines; an octet.

and I write poems to get my emotions out, so…. yeah.
Plus, “oct”ave sounded Splatoon-esque.
My switch username is HL*Eevee bc my competitive gamer tag is “RandomEevee” and my very first username when I got my switch was “Hollyleaf.”
Sometimes my switch name is “partyhard.“ or “CherryCola”, “partyhard.” for when I want to start full-lobby Squid parties in regular matches and “CherryCola” because it sounds cool.
