Plot summary

The manga stars Goggles and his three friends: Headphones, Specs, and Bobble Hat. This manga uses the Splatoon rules and world, with action focusing on Turf Wars.

CoroCoro Cup arc

The Turf Wars have started in Inkopolis, and the team that inks the most ground will be crowned the winner! Goggles and Team Blue are ranked lower than their competitors. But with some teamwork and a touch of creativity, they might just leave their mark on this tournament! Team Blue has garnered attention after impressive showings against some of the most elite Inkling teams. But it'll only get harder from here! With the S4 Inklings aiming to bring down Goggles and his friends, the team must continue to find ways to improve, even if it means asking for help from the unlikeliest of sources!

It contains eight chapters. This arc introduces Rider and Team Yellow-Green in Chapter 1, Army and Team Orange in Chapter 2, Team Green in Chapter 3, Aloha and Team Pink in Chapter 4, Mask and Team Cyan in Chapter 5, Skull and Team Purple in Chapters 5 and 7, as well as Team Yellow and Team Dark Green or "The Blaster Brothers" in bonus manga Chapters 0 and 4.5.

Square King Cup arc

Similarly, to the first Splatoon era's Corocoro Cup arc, the Splatoon 2 era's Square King Cup arc focuses on the Blue Team on a tournament, specifically the Square King Cup.

New weapons, new foes, and new friends enter the splatfield as Team Blue prepares for its toughest challenge yet: the Square King Cup! They must prepare for all kinds of teams that are way stronger than they are - and maybe even have to battle the undisputed champion - the player known as Emperor! The match between Team Blue and Team Emperor heats up toward the big finale - with both sides exhausted and losing ground! Plus, in the aftermath of the final match, a new enemy awaits who will require the tournament rivals to work together! They need to win because Goggles destroyed Crusty Sean’s shop. One of the rewards is opening a new shop.

The first chapter of this arc is chapter 10. It contains thirteen chapters.

Octo arc

The Octo arc is based on the Octo Expansion DLC for Splatoon 2. Goggles finds himself lost in the Deepsea Metro after falling off the Grizzco boat and has to find his way out alongside Eight, an Octoling with amnesia. Inside an underground facility connected to the Deepsea Metro subway system, Goggles and his team must pass a series of tests to discover the four "thangs" that will open the door to a fabled Promised Land. The first chapter of this arc is chapter 24. It contains five chapters.

Square King Ranked Cup arc

The Square King Ranked Cup arc focuses on another tournament on Inkopolis Square that functions similar to the original Square King Cup with some elements retained from said arc such as Crusty Sean's shop being destroyed again but with other twists, such as Emperor joining Team Blue to replace Specs (who is unable to participate due to stings from bees), making Team Blueperor, and past supporting teams returning. The newest obstacle to overcome is Team X-Blood, which consists of Rank X Inklings. Ranked Battles are to be expected instead of Turf Wars. The first chapter of this, Chapter 32. It contains fourteen chapters.

Hero Mode arc

The Hero Mode arc takes place immediately after the end of the Square King Ranked Cup arc. It is based on Octo Canyon from Splatoon 2 and begins with Marie and Sheldon recruiting Goggles and Gloves as Agents 3 and 4 of the New Squidbeak Splatoon to find and collect the Zapfish. After collecting multiple Zapfish, Marie explains that Callie was kidnaped by the Octarians. Soon after, the group finds the Octarians' base, but they are also met by DJ Octavio and his Octobot King II. The first chapter of this arc is chapter 44. It contains two chapters.

The Adventures of Sheldon arc

This arc begins when Sheldon finds a treasure map and note written by his grandfather, Ammoses Shellendorf (as seen in the bonus manga "Grandpappy's note" at the end of volume 12). He quickly recruits Goggles and heads to Mount Nantai where the treasure is hidden. There, they find three guardians that test them in order to get three parts of a key to unlock the treasure. The first chapter of this arc is chapter 47. It contains four chapters.

Final fest arc

It’s the Final Splatfest, with Team Blue vs. Team Hivemind! Then, during a new Turf War, Goggles and his friends take on a mysterious group of Inklings who look strangely familiar…Can Team Blue defeat the Shadows? The first chapter of this arc is chapter 53. It contains four chapters.

Shadows arc

Team Blue engages in their most complicated Turf War yet as they combat the Shadows, whose personalities are exact mirror reflections of Team Blue's own! The result of the challenge will determine the fate of Inkopolis Square! The first chapter of this arc is chapter 58. It contains four chapters.

Stamp rally arc

Goggles and his friends are participating in a stamp rally to win gorgeous prizes! You can get stamps by winning battles! Will Goggles be able to collect all the stamps? We've got Turf War, Ranked Battle, and Salmon Run to play! The first chapter of this arc is chapter 62. It contains four chapters.
