Inkling was the first newcomer announced for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and appeared in its initial reveal trailer. Hailing from the popular Splatoon series, Inkling (alongside Incineroar) is one of the most recent characters in Ultimate. In competitive play, Inkling is considered a high-tier fighter; unfortunately, the amiibo metagame tells a different story. Inkling is fairly difficult to raise, and at the time of writing, has had below-average results and representation.
