About

Splatoon 2 Furries refer to drawings of anthropomorphic animals posted in public messages within the in-game lobby for the 2017 team-based third-person shooter Nintendo Switch video game Splatoon 2.

Origin

In the game Splatoon 2, players can posts illustrations or messages in a dialogue box in the game's multiplayer lobby, Inkopolis Square. In late July 2017, people began complaining about illustrations of anthropomorphic animals being frequently posted in the lobby, leading players to post messages asking for others to "stop drawing furries" (shown below).

Link works with fish people, rock people, imps, and other humanoid creatures.
