Appearances

Callie

Her tentacles, which are black with a pink gradient at the ends, are very long and tied in a large bow on the back of her head, leaving the ends to dangle. She has large, angular eyes with gold irises and light brown pupils in the shape of a plus. Her eye markings end in small points, and her eyebrows are large and oval shaped. Her ears are slightly narrower, longer, and more upturned than those of the average Inkling, and on them she wears a pair of chunky milk-white earrings.

Her outfit, which has no sleeves and ends in shorts, is black with a reflective texture. On the front are three pink marks, which, somewhat morbidly, are made to look like the cuts made in squid when it is cooked. With this outfit, she wears pink tights, white gloves, and a small, white, shirt collar necklace. Callie also wears a pair of black wedge shoes with a texture similar to leather, which have a shiny pink material on the bottom and two pink buttons on either side of the ankle. She wears a pink and white hat resembling the Japanese fast food ikayaki on her head, and has a beautymark on her left cheek.

During a Splatfest, any part of Callie's appearance that is normally pink will change to match the color of her Splatfest Team, including the ends of her tentacles.

As a child, Callie wore traditional Japanese-style clothing, and her tentacles were somewhat messy and much shorter, with the longest one falling just past her left ear. Her first outfit, shown in Sunken Scroll 17, consisted of a purple yukata with a squid pattern on the sleeves and a flower pattern towards the bottom, and a pair of thick black zōri with purple thongs. On the left side of her head, she wore some sort of purple accessory.

For her second outfit, which was shown in promotional art for the Japanese Grasshopper vs. Ant Splatfest, Callie wore a red-orange yukata with a white jellyfish pattern and thinner zōri, but still with purple thongs. The purple accessory had changed to green and red, and she had what seems to be a blue inner tube strapped to her back.

Marie

The coloration on the ends of Marie's tentacles.

Marie has a more sultry design than Callie.

Her tentacles, which are milk-white, are tied in a large bow on the right side of her head, with the ends wrapped around to the other side and curling up slightly at the ends with an unsaturated gray gradient. She has large, downturned eyes with gold irises and light brown pupils in the shape of a plus. Her eye markings end in small, slightly curved points, and her eyebrows are large and oval shaped. Her ears are slightly narrower and longer than those of the average Inkling, and on them she wears a pair of chunky milk-white earrings.

Her outfit, which has no sleeves and ends in a skirt, is black with a reflective texture. On the front are three green marks, which, somewhat morbidly, are made to look like the cuts made in squid when it is cooked, and the inside skirt facing is also green. With this outfit, she wears green tights, black shorts, white gloves, and a small, white, shirt collar necklace. Marie also wears a pair of black wedge shoes with a texture similar to leather, which have a shiny green material on the bottom and two green buttons on either side of the ankle. She wears a green and white hat resembling a calamari ring, and has a beautymark on her right cheek.

During a Splatfest, any part of Marie's appearance that is normally green will change to match the color of her Splatfest Team, including the ends of her tentacles.

As a child, Marie wore traditional Japanese-style clothing, and her tentacles were much shorter. Her first outfit, shown in Sunken Scroll 17, consisted of a black yukata with a white polka dot pattern at the bottom, and a pair of thick black zōri with pink thongs. On the left side of her head, she wore a green and white accessory that simply looked like a smaller version of her current calamari hat.

For her second outfit, which was shown in promotional art for the Japanese Grasshopper vs. Ant Splatfest, Marie wore a white yukata with a seashell pattern in lime green, navy blue, and dull purple. The calamari accessory had taken on a dark purple tint in addition to its existing colors.

Personality

Both Squid Sisters are clever and passionate about not only their music, but entertaining their fans. Callie is optimistic and peppy, with the occasional sarcastic remark. This makes her a good foil to Marie, who has more pronounced sarcastic and lazy tendencies.

When first beginning Splatoon's Hero Mode, Cap'n Cuttlefish refers to the player as Agent 3, as they are the third agent of the New Squidbeak Splatoon to fight off the Octarians. He even states that the equipment given to the player is a hand-me-down from the previous two agents. Towards the end of Hero Mode, it is heavily implied that Agents 1 and 2 were in fact Callie and Marie, respectively. Among other clues, Agent 1 almost refers to Agent 2 as "Marie", and the Squid Sisters are seen reporting on the return of the Great Zapfish while pretending not to know how it came back. After Cuttlefish is kidnapped, the Squid Sisters will serve as the player's mission control until DJ Octavio is defeated. Also, as stated in the Sunken Scrolls and the dialogue for refighting DJ Octavio, Callie and Marie started their career after they won a singing contest.

Trivia

  • If the player looks at the Squid Sisters through their window while they are chatting with each other in their Inkopolis Plaza studio, Callie and Marie will stop talking to look and wave.
  • Callie and Marie's names are, when combined, wordplay on "calamari". Their names in different localizations of the game tend to be based on different puns.
    • In the French version of the game, Callie and Marie's names are Ayo and Oly, respectively. These names together are a pun on aioli, a sauce often served with seafood, and possibly a pun on Aori-ika, the Japanese name for the Bigfin Reef Squid.
  • Their given names in Japanese are derived from real-world species: "Aori-ika" or bigfin reef squid, and "Hotaru-ika" or firefly squid.
    • Their Spanish names are Mar and Tina. Mar is a Spanish given name and it means Sea, while Tina is a Spanish given name and it's also the word for tub. Also, their names make the word "Martina", a Spanish given name.
    • The band's name in Spanish, Calamarciñas is a pun on Calamar (Squid) and Niñas (Girls) and it could be translated as "Squid Girls".
    • In the German Version of the Game, Callie's name "Aioli" is directly referencing the above mentioned sauce, while Marie's name "Limone" is referencing lemon.
    • The band's name in Japanese, "シオカラーズ" (Shiokarāzu) is a pormanteau of the Japanese word シオカラ (shiokara), which is salted squid that's fermented in its entrails, and the Japanese romanization of the word 'colors', or カラーズ, (karāzu).
  • Callie and Marie appear to be the second-oldest Inklings seen in-game, the oldest being Cap'n Cuttlefish. However, one can assume many Inklings older than them that don't participate in Turf War are somewhere absent from the city.
  • Their outfit designs are thought to be centred around the dishes "ika soumen", "ika rings", and "ikayaki".
  • According to Callie, Marie is good at impressions.
  • In a piece of dialogue spoken during the stage announcements, the Squid Sisters reveal that they both have, in the past, been employees at Walleye Warehouse and that Callie can also be very clumsy. The dialogue is as follows:
Callie: "Remember working here [Walleye Warehouse] part-time back in the day?"
Marie: "Yeah, and how often you broke the assembly line..."
  • In the stage news for Moray Towers, The Squid Sisters reference Pokémon in one of their lines, referring to the phrase 'It's super effective!' and 'I wanna be the very best, like no one ever was' which is one of the lines from the first Pokémon anime opening.
Callie: "Rollers are super effective here!"
Marie: "Chargers are the very best, like no gun ever was!"
And when Callie and Marie announce the Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue Splatfest one of their dialouge is a reference to Team Rocket's catchphrase in the anime
Callie: "Sigh... This Splatfest is going to be trouble."
Marie: "And make it double!"
Callie: "We'll protect Inkopolis from devastation!"
Marie: "And unite all squids within our nation!"
  • In the August Update, a new line has also been added, poking fun at mechanics developers inplemented in order to maximize the frame-rate, such as Draw Distance.
Callie: "It's so foggy I can't even see the ground!"
Marie: "That's called draw distan- Er... It's smog. *COUGH*"
  • The sixteenth and final global Splatfest, rather than featuring the Squid Sisters taking sides on a hosted showdown, featured the Squid Sisters themselves as the teams. The final results gave Marie a 54% popularity advantage and a 51% victory ratio, making her supporters the overall Splatfest winner.
  • In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, scanning Amiibos of the two will unlock squirrel versions of themselves.
