Previous Splatoon 3 Splatfests

Below you can see the theme and results of all previous Splatoon 3 Splatfests.

Nessie vs. aliens vs. bigfoot

This most recent Splatfest was a monster blowout. Nessie took home the prize, taking down the extra-terrestrials and burly bigfoot.

Dark chocolate vs. white chocolate vs. milk chocolate

The recent Splatfest saw the different chocolate variations take each other on. White chocolate won, though I suspect this is mostly down to most people choosing the team for the unique ink colour.

Spicy vs. sweet vs. sour

This gastronomical Splatfest took place in January 2023, kicking off the new year with a fierce food fight. We saw sweet take first place, with spicy next and sour just behind.

Grass vs. fire vs. water

This Pokémon-themed Splatfest in November 2022 featured a battle between different Pokémon types. The winner worldwide was water, winning in every possible category. By far the biggest winner.

Gear vs. grub vs. fun

This September 2022 Splatfest asked you what you’d most like on a desert island – helpful equipment, something to eat, or some entertainment. Gear received around 60% of the votes, which is huge.

Rock vs. paper vs. scissors

The classic three-way hand game rock-paper-scissors was the theme for August 2022’s Splatfest. Rock won, for some reason. I don’t really know how anyone chose their allegiances in this Splatfest.
