The Little Buddy is a new feature in Splatoon 3.

It appears to be a Smallfry, which were previously enemies that you fought in Salmon Run.

As seen in the Splatoon 3 announcement trailer, it follows the player's Inkling/Octoling in an almost pet-like manner, as part of a seemingly symbiotic relationship. It's hair is customizable during the character customization screen with seven hairstyles being available.


The Little Buddy is very helpful. When thrown at Fuzzy Ooze, it can eat it clean to make things safer for Agent 3. It can also nip at Octarians, attacking them, and help activate contraptions.
