PROVING Mass Effect’s Indoctrination Theory! ►

Are you a Kid or are you a Squid? The question has plagued the gaming community since… well okay not that long ago, but it was SPLATOON’s main marketing slogan! And in truth, Inklings are fascinating: bipedal childlike creatures one moment, blooper-like ink swimming cephalopods the next. But is it possible to ever truly know if Inklings are more Squid-like or more Kid-like? YES. Yes it is. And today I will prove to you that Inklings are ABSOLUTELY more one than the other!

  1. 'HELLO INTERNET, WELCOME TO GA-' gay theory

  2. The determined calendar incidentally claim because hose gergely trap abaft a enormous prepared. afraid, smart move

  3. so inklings are squids and octolings are closer to us octolings have belly buttons and inklings don't so that means there mammals and there is nothing else they could've evolved from beside us really weird when u think about it

  4. "Are u a kid or a squid?"
    Me: hey wait a second, is there any squids that aren't kids and teens?

  5. I thought the plural for octopus was octopi but I guess that is somewhat wrong.

  6. Splatoon 1 and 2 gameplay: ❤️💛💫🤩🌈🥺
    Splatoon 3 trailer: 😃👍
    Octo Expansion: 😎😄😨😦🤭😥
    The actual lore: 💀👍

  7. But wait, it took many years for the squids to turn into kids cause of how they kept losing in the great turf war, in which in that time they started to evolve into these human-like forms

  8. And you forgot that the human race died in Splatoon and that squids was able to take over, however the water rising was scarce so that means it was forced evolution

  9. No one talking about the banjo reference. This annoys me.

  10. When he explained squids literally changing their genes, it makes me question why humanity even tries to make life easier anymore…

  11. Petition for mat pat make another splatoon theory for splatoon 3 releasing

  12. I think that by kid Nintendo meant juvenile, you're a young squid

  13. So techno out potato farmed a Nintendo creation

  14. splatoon 2 scrolls ALL THE HUMANS ARE DE A D me already knowing there squids because humans are dead now-

  15. 1:55 Octopades? more like octopades nutz

    i made this joke before the other person we’re on a call

    school: starts to get up
    Me: HEY NOT YOU IT'S YOU Point's At game theory)

  17. Welcome to gay theory where we check all the flags of the LQBTQ+ community.

  18. gg squid is also the answer in a lore perspective

  19. So they have cartilage which is very bendable so that makse it so they can go through grates and stuff but they are made of ink in squid form so its way easier to go through

  20. My game theory is that millions of years after mammal went extinct, squid managed to evolve into squid people and back. They started making structures and forming civilizations when they discovered how different coloured ink affected them. They started making weaponry and attacking each other trying to coverage much land as possible with their own ink varient. With Splatoon 2 a d the Octo expansion, they got an enemy. They were octopuses that had gone onto land but formed diffrently. They saw how the world now was about fighting and fought strong. Agents were sent out to stop them but scientists thought to create a better version and more human (well at this stage more inkling like) octonarians. They first had some that escaped but set the rest into war. Hope that makes sence. 😊

  21. “Hello internet welcome to gay!” Best into ever

  22. Thanks for giving us evidence of a plural word for octopus Game Theorist.

  23. No one:

    Literally no one:

    MatPat: hello internet, welcome to GAY!

  24. i came here to watch slpatoon theorys, not a genetics class!

  25. I kinda thing if they ARE squids, humans still exist, or did recently. Why? ( Don’t get cooked stay off the hook) that sound a little weird 2 u matpat?

  26. Everyone: humanity was killed by rising sea levels. Me, realizing inklings die in water: ok sure i guess that could work.

  27. About the Inklings, and Octolings having lungs to help them breath that is completely false. As Nintendo themselves revealed after the release of Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion that the reason why Inklings, and Octolings are able to survive on land via their skin basically when squids, and octopodes adapted/evolved into the Inklings, and Octolings part of becoming a "land-dwelling" species was that their skin became much thinner then usual and it basically functions like frog skin. To explain Inklings, and Octolings use their thin skin to breath by absorbing water/moisture molecules in the atmosphere however this thin skin comes at a cost as being completely submerged in saltwater will kill them and warm freshwater serves as a irritant, meaning water itself doesn't kill them as Inklings, and Octolings can survive in cold freshwater, and snow which is frozen freshwater, and is immune to rainwater on the condition that it is a freezing rain.

  28. This could a been 5 minutes if he just read the in game lore it litlrey has a picture of squid coming to land and evolving so it being squid to kid

  29. Sorry to be that guy but its out right staded in the lore that inkling come from a squid
