Background

Agent 3 (3号 San-Gō , lit. Number Three) is the name of the protagonist Inkling from Splatoon's single player mode, Hero Mode, and the player's character in multiplayer modes, respectively. They can be male or female, and their hair and eye color may vary, depending on the player's choice of customization, but are often portrayed as female.

In Splatoon, They meet Cap'n Cuttlefish's and join the New Squidbeak Splatoon with the codename of Agent 3 to rescue the Zapfish, as the other two Agents are the Squid Sisters, Callie and Marie (who are Agents 1 and 2 respectively).

In Splatoon 2, Agent 3 is away with Cap'n Cuttlefish, so another Inkling, the protagonist "Agent 4", follows Marie to find her missing cousin Callie and stop another Octarian theft of the Great Zapfish. They reappear in the Octo Expansion DLC as a non-playable character and a boss.

In Splatoon 3, Agent 3 is named as the Captain of the New Squidbeak Splatoon, replacing Cuttlefish, and is succeeded by a new member taking on the codename Agent 3.

History

Early life

Not much is known about Agent 3's background, except that they left their home at the age of 14 to "be where fashion is made" and moved to live alone in Inkopolis.

Splatoon

In Splatoon, after following him through a manhole in Inkopolis Plaza, Agent 3 met Cap'n Cuttlefish in Octo Valley. After explaining to them the Octarians' plan of stealing the Great Zapfish, he recruited the young Inkling as Agent 3 of the New Squidbeak Splatoon, giving them the Hero Shot and a hand-me-down Hero Suit. Agent 3 then progressed through the levels of Octo Valley, retrieving Zapfish and defeating the Great Octoweapons.

After defeating the Octowhirl, however, Cuttlefish got kidnapped, and Agent 3 was instead guided by his granddaughters, Agents 1 and 2. After completing all the levels in Octo Valley, Agent 3 eventually battled the leader of the Octarians, DJ Octavio, in Enter the Octobot King!. After the fourth and penultimate phase of the battle, Agents 1 and 2 revealed themselves as Callie and Marie of the Squid Sisters and played the Calamari Inkantation, allowing Cuttlefish to free himself. With this motivation, Agent 3 defeated Octavio, rescuing Cuttlefish and the Great Zapfish, and Inkopolis' power supply was restored.

Splatoon 2

In Octo Canyon in Splatoon 2, Agent 3 does not appear, being replaced by Agent 4. However, Agent 3 is mentioned various times through Marie's dialogue. Sunken Scroll 25 revealed that Cap'n Cuttlefish went off traveling with Agent 3 for "a research trip to the cape."

Octo Expansion

Before the start of the Octo Expansion, Agent 3 and Cap'n Cuttlefish continued exploring Octo Valley when they ended up in battle against a young Octoling. However, an unknown third party attacked them, leaving them stranded in the Deepsea Metro, with Agent 3 separated. Cuttlefish and the Octoling nicknamed Agent 8 teamed up to collect the four thangs and escape the Deepsea Metro.

After Agent 8 collected all four thangs, the Telephone built them into a blender and tricked Agent 8 and Cuttlefish inside. However, Marina used Agent 8's CQ-80 device to unleash a distress signal to which Agent 3 responded by jumping through the roof and destroying the blender. They were rendered unconscious as a result, with Cuttlefish staying behind to look after them as Agent 8 escaped through the hole Agent 3 made.

While Agent 8 was away, the Telephone attacked Agent 3, partially sanitizing them. Under the Telephone's control, they tied up Cuttlefish and later attacked Agent 8 before they could escape to the surface. After being defeated, the sanitization disappeared, leaving them once again unconscious. They eventually woke up after Agent 8 and Off the Hook defeated the NILS Statue, used by Telephone, as Commander Tartar, to destroy Inkopolis, now with a band-aid on the back of their head as the credits rolled.

When Agent 8 returned to the Deepsea Metro, Cuttlefish explained that Agent 3 went back on patrol. After Agent 8 completed all the tests, a locker in Central Station opened and they had a flashback to the first time they heard the Calamari Inkantation, prompting a final battle against their "Inner Agent 3".

Splatoon 3

Sometime before the start of Splatoon 3, Agent 3 was promoted to the captain of the New Squidbeak Splatoon, with Cap'n Cuttlefish stepping down and going into retirement. They are wearing the Cap of Legend, Hero Headset, Cap'n Cuttlefish's unnamed clothing, and sandals. At the beginning of Return of the Mammalians, Cuttlefish recruits a new Inkling or Octoling as the new Agent 3 to investigate the disappearance of the Great Zapfish in Splatsville.

After a battle with DJ Octavio at the bottom of the Crater, the new Agent 3 ends up in Alterna, where they meet the members of the New Squidbeak Splatoon, but at the same time, Cuttlefish is captured by Mr. Grizz.

After the new Agent 3 collects the three treasures guarded by Deep Cut, Agent 3, now the captain, and the Squid Sisters build it into a lawn mower-like tool together. The captain then uses it to cut off all the fuzz around Alterna Space Center so the party could go there and save Cuttlefish, but is also hurt in the process, and the tool breaks down. The two agents then follow the new Agent 3 into the space center, along with Deep Cut after the latter is given the broken tool.

After discovering the dehydrated Cuttlefish, the captain is devastated along with the Squid Sisters. They hold Cuttlefish's body in their hands and cry. A drop of tear falls on Cuttlefish's body, and he is revitalized by the teardrop in his squid form.

After the new Agent 3 defeats Mr. Grizz and visits Alterna again, the captain would praise them with a 'Booyah!' signal, as one of their only active reactions in the game, as they otherwise have Agent 2 speak for them.

Age: 14 in Splatoon, 16 in Splatoon 2, 21 in Splatoon 3

Classification: Agent 3, Captain of the New Squidbeak Splatoon, DJ

Species: Inkling

Status: Alive

Alignment: Lawful Good (Even upon meeting Captain Cuttlefish and no one believing him that the Octarians took the Great Zapfish, she decided to join him in the New Squidbeak Splatoon as Agent 3 and complete several different missions to save all of the Zapfish and Inkopolis. After that, Agent 3 still stuck with the New Squidbeak Splatoon and fought to protect the citizens of Inkopolis. They also sided on Team Order on the Final Splatfest in Splatoon 2 for that reason. In Splatoon 2's Octo Expansion, they were able to save Captain Cuttlefish and Agent 8 right before they were about to get killed. Despite previously fighting Agent 8 as an enemy, they became friends and good with each other seeing that Agent 8 was purified by the Calamari Inkantation and even saved the world against Commander Tartar. They also have honor like Captain Cuttlefish who said that there is no honor in defeated an unarmed enemy off guard upon finding Agent 8 unconscious in Deepsea Metro. In Splatoon 3, Craig Cuttlefish now retired so Agent 3 now took on the title of Captain of the New Squidbeak Splatoon. They aren't an Inkling of many words but they supported and helped New Agent 3 by cutting down the fuzzy ooze that they couldn't destroy and giving them a booyah to show appreciation for saving the world from Mr. Grizz), Chaotic Evil upon Sanitization (Sanitized Ink corrupts anyone hit by it to be completely loyal to Commander Tartar and Kamabo Corporation[2] which wants to destroy the world and kill off all livings things so Tartars ultimate lifeforms can emerge and start anew. Anyone corrupted will be bloodlusted and have no other thought besides terminating any other species or opposers. They also are described to loose all sense of feeling and emotion)

    Standard Tactics:

    Agent 3 attacks with their main weapon and uses their sub and special weapons to their advantage.

    Due to being sanitized, Agent 3 shows no mercy and spams all their strongest Special Weapons and Sub Weapons all at once while attacking with their main weapon due to their limiter being removed and them being corrupted. They also corrupt anyone hit by Sanitized Ink to be brainwashed by Tartar like them as well.

    Weaknesses: Their movement speed is greatly slowed upon their armor regenerating.

    4. Nogami: But C.Q Cumber isn’t such a bad guy, he’s just devoted to his job! (Laughs). When you get splatted in battle, the Inkling’s soul will return to the starting point. Please expect the octoling to be resurrected in the same way.
    5. Amano: Incidentally, if you repeatedly fail in the test stages, you can skip it by having Marina hack it, right? However, the final stage has a different function called "Groove Charge. In fact, in the final stage, there's no longer a life counter, and if you get splatted, you really do lose your life.... In the test stages, like in Turf War, when you get hit, your soul returns to the respawn point, but in the final stage, when you die, time rewinds back to the point where you started.
    6. Q: It seems that "Sanitization" means more than just cleansing. What exactly happens to the Sanitized Octarians? A: Sanitization is to purge life's energies so that they no longer cause unnecessary hesitation and instability in the mind, and to become a part of the loyal Kamabo Corporation.
    7. Q: What's so special about the fluorescent green substance common to Brainwashed Agent 3, Sanitized Octarians, and Commander Tartar? A: It's a blended ink. I think it looks like it has a marbled pattern. If you bathe in that ink for a long time, your head will be repainted with Kamabo Co.’s ideas. Commander Tartar's whole body seems to be stained with the thoughts of Kamabo Corporation
