    So in Splatoon 2 we now have team chat commands by pressing the d-pad. However we on;y have two: "This Way" and "Booyah"

    I propose a third one: the expletive command. Pressing the button would output random symbols like "%&#!" and play a flat horn sound effect, and repeatedly tapping or holding the button would output more and more at larger sizes. Can be used in conjunction with the other two commands.


    Thoughts? Wouldn't it be hilarious?

    It'd be hilarious to any 12 year old on the internet, sure.

    By convincing Nintendo to add it. They've already used expletive symbols in other games (such as Superstar Saga), and this provides a delightful way to blow off the steam of failure - being too comical to stay mad at.

    It may need a cooldown timer... Maybe not by default but one that gets slapped onto abusers.

    Nah, not needed and would just be spammed near constantly.

    Personally I'd like there to be a "Touché" option because it feels weird to send a "Booyah!" to acknowledge an opponent who took me down skilfully.

    Is there still teabagging in online games? I remember that being a big thing back in the Halo 3 days.
    The easiest way to get me to fly into a rage. I used to get so mad hahaha

    not in Nintendo games, but it is very much alive in competitive FPS games, esp. Destiny.

    They need to add Thanks! At least for Salmon Run. Or just add Voice Chat in general.
