About

Inkling Girl's Eye refers to an exploitable image of one of the Inklings from Splatoon seeing the reflection of something in her eye. The image comes from the March 8th, 2018 Nintendo Direct presentation. In the original, the Inkling girl has the Super Smash Brothers logo reflected in her eye. What she sees is changed in the exploitables.

Origin

On March 8th, 2018, Nintendo gave a Nintendo Direct presentation. Towards the end of the presentation, the Splatoon Inklings are engaging in a cinematic battle when the lights go dark and the girl Inkling turns to see something. As the camera zooms in on her eye, the Super Smash Brothers logo can be seen in her eye, as Nintendo was announcing a new Super Smash Brothers game for the Nintendo Switch due in 2018.



Spread

Quickly after the presentation, exploitable variations of the moment began appearing online. One of the earliest variations appeared on Tumblr, posted by user kukui,[1] who placed the character Sans from Undertale in the girl's eye (shown below, left). Twitter user @LivingTombstone[2] uploaded a version with Pee Is Stored In the Balls, gaining over 60 retweets and 320 likes in less than 24 hours (shown below, right).



Meanwhile, the format began growing very popular on meme-based subreddits. Several posts appeared in /r/memeeconomy after the Direct presentation excitedly discussing the format. A post featuring Savage Patrick in the eye on the subreddit gained over 800 upvotes (shown below, left). On /r/dankmemes, several posts with the format appeared as well. One of the most popular, a Guys Only Want One Thing and It's Fucking Disgusting variation, gained over 680 upvotes (shown below, right).
