*Out of bounds geometry in Splatsville (Grizzco building).
Splatoon 3, featuring a story mode nearly as complex as the Octo Expansion, expanded customization, Tableturf Battle, 100% more Callie, and 99% less Off the Hook, is no doubt the biggest, jam-packed and most chaotic installment yet.

Unused & Unobtainable Gear
Return of the Mammalians Sets
Damaged Hero Gear Set
Gear icons for the "damaged" version of the Hero Gear.
Full Hero Gear Set
Gear icons for the "full strength" version of the Hero Gear. A duplicate of this set is also present within the gear icon files named Hed_MSN306, Clt_MSN306 and Shs_MSN306, respectively. Their names suggest they may have been placeholders for another set of Hero Mode-exclusive Gear.
Gear icons for the first layer of armor the Hero Gear can get.
Gear icons for the second layer of armor the Hero Gear can get.
Final mission Set
Gear icons for the special version of the Hero Gear worn in the final mission's finale segment.
Captain 3 Set
Gear icons for the Captain's Gear set.
Fuzzy Octoling Set
Gear icons for the Gear set worn by the Fuzzy Octolings encountered in the mode.
An Elite Octoling variant of the goggles is present, just as it was in second game.
Nails' Eye Textures
Underneath Nails' sunglasses is an eye texture that is normally never seen in-game.
"Limited" Salmon Run Mode
Two gamemodes titled under the "Limited" mode are left unused in the files; Pair and Underground.
Both of the gamemodes have their own pay grades and titles, and could also be occasional experiences based on them being under the "Limited" mode.
Underground is a harder version of Salmon Run with many slight changes that create a tougher experience.
- Every boss has 30% more HP and moves 30% faster.
- 2 of the bosses that spawn will drop large Golden Eggs which add 5 eggs to the counter.
- The quota increases faster than regular, having a +3/+5/+7 quota.
Pair has no known data about it so far.
Originally, there was a 3rd mode, named Contest, but it was later adapted into Eggstra Work in the Fresh Season 2023 update. However, neither of these gamemodes or the Limited mode have any connection to Big Run.
Extract the texture and compare with final (in Japanese)
An early model of the lobby terminal screen, with a placeholder menu.
An unused variant of the Splatfest Pledge Box, which seems to be very unfinished due to the lack of proper texturing and the simple blocky modelling.
There is a model for an extremely unfinished Splatsville in its Splatfest variant. While there are textures, none of them are applied to the model itself.
Three identical copies of the lobby music from Splatoon 2 titled BGM LobbyVersus Normal Day, BGM LobbyVersus Normal Holiday and BGM LobbyVersus Normal Night are present in the files.
BGM LobbyVersus Normal Day
This parameter exists in the files for all stringers. It is normally always set to false, and setting it to true reveals an unused projectile tracer.
Internal Name Oddities
- One of the City/Plaza Inklings' walking animations is named
- Internally, the game refers to the "Respawn Punisher" ability as "Exorcist".
- The Splatana Stamper is internally referred to as the "normal" splatana, despite being considered the more advanced variant in-game.
Internal Project Name
Splatoon 3's internal project name is Thunder, according to strings in the executable. This seems to go along with Splatoon 2's project name, Blitz, as Blitz is the German word for Lightning.
