Meggy Spletzer is a major character from SMG4's series of bloopers. She first appeared in If Mario Was In... Splatoon, after Mario freed her from a can of paint in Peach's castle. Later, she dragged him into Inkopolis, where Mario joined her team to participate in the Turf War.
Following that, Meggy has appeared in many episodes, often residing in the Mushroom Kingdom and hanging out with Mario, SMG4 and Co., and has thus become a recurring major protagonist. At the end of The Anime Arc, Meggy was transformed from an Inkling into a human after getting all of her ink extracted by The Ink Zuccer 2000.
Meggy is a female human, formerly an Inkling, who originates from Inkopolis. She is an active competitor in local Turf War battles and dreams of becoming a successful athlete. As such, she refers to herself as an "upcoming star." For that, she tries too hard and gets into lots of fiascoes when trying to be too competitive.
Prior to her debut episode, Meggy was captured by an unknown adversary (possibly Toadsworth) and trapped in a can of paint in the basement of Peach's Castle until Mario freed her. Afterwards, she returns home to Inkopolis, dragging Mario as he hangs on with her down a nearby drain. Upon returning, Meggy attacks Mario with a Splatshot, believing that he was the one who trapped her in the can of paint. She then quickly runs off to train.
Mario eventually runs into Meggy again when he sees her walk down an alleyway. After watching her team, the Splat Squad, during their training, he asks if he can join them, only for Meggy to turn him down due to his lack of experience and their lack of an opening on their team. However, Meggy is eventually forced to let Mario in after his attempts to impress her leave one of her teammates, Heavy Squid injured.
While Mario still proves to be inexperienced, he starts to show more commitment to practicing after seeing how serious Meggy is towards winning the Turf War. As such, the two slowly bond as they work together during the rest of the session.
The next day, the Turf War begins, and Mario and Meggy both work to best their competition. While Mario still struggles with following Meggy's lead, he manages to come around once he starts to use his own skill set that seemingly majorly helps the team. Eventually, the Splats Squad's rival team, the InkBrigade, come out victorious in the end, leaving Meggy distraught. Nevertheless, Mario manages to comfort her with his simple-minded humor and logic, and she resolves to keep working to get better. The two eventually part ways as Mario heads home, with Meggy now considering him her friend.
She appears as one of the many competitors that go through Mario's tower. She proves to be extremely skilled in most of the challenges (particularly the Slope, the Bullseye, and the Gauntlet), even making it all the way to the semi-finals. However, like everyone else, she ultimately loses the competition to Shroomy. However, she was in the lead in the Gauntlet, so she arguably came in second place.
Meggy serves as one of the challenges for SMG4 and Mario in a one-on-one Splatoon shootout, where either one must land a hit on her in order to win. However, this proves to be difficult as her attacks frequently overwhelm them. SMG4 loses the match when he lunges out on an unexpecting Meggy, only to get hit by an oncoming subway train. Mario attempts to fake her out by pretending to surrender then shooting at her when she's not looking. However, Meggy dodges the attack, proving her to not be as gullible. She then shoots him, making Mario lose the match as well.
Meggy later participates in the rap battle, siding with Mario and Fishy Boopkins, while also displaying her skill at singing.
In this episode, she stands up for Mario after he got mocked for his new year resolution of losing weight, claiming that they all had their own new year resolution. She later reappears in the last segment learning to be a better cook with Mario's help (as she only ate instant noodles due to her busy training). Ultimately, although it doesn't help her (the food made was a disaster), it ended on a funny note when Meggy asks Mario if he wanted to also eat instant noodles.
Meggy appears playing Yu-Gi-Oh with Fishy Boopkins and Bob (despite thinking it was Pokemon, and not knowing the rules) when Mario and Luigi (being chased by T-Pose Zombies) break into the room. Meggy witnesses Boopkins get converted to a T-Pose zombie. After Bob's act of cowardice, she attempts to fight them off herself but soon joins their ranks. Just like all the others infected, she is returned back to normal after the 1-Up barrage by Peach Toadstool.
She appears as a cameo rejected Waluigi's invitation, stating the reason being what happened in SMG4: Mario And The T-Pose Virus.
Meggy appears as one of the people in Bob's carnival. When Mario struggles with the Duck Hunt game while trying to get 100,000 tickets for the Eggman Football (and shooting Bob for making fun of his aiming skills), he encounters Meggy and asks her to help. She accepts, and she shoots the targets with perfect accuracy, scoring Mario a lot of tickets. However, SMG4 arrives with Tari, marking the moment Meggy and Tari to meet for the first time. Meggy tells Tari to show her what she can do, and SMG4 orders Bob to raise the difficulty. Tari proves to be even more of a challenge.
Meggy, not willing to lose, orders Bob to activate her gun, and when Bob asks for the money, she angrily repeats the order, and Bob obliges. Meggy and Tari shoot the targets with the same accuracy, while at the same time scoring Mario and SMG4 even more tickets (thus causing Mario and SMG4 to say "Yeah, boiiiiiiii" in unison). Bob panics, saying that at this rate, they will clean him out of his tickets, proclaims to have a little trick up his sleeve. As a last resort, Bob flips a switch to activate "POWER DRIVE" difficulty, which causes the targets to move at such a fast speed to cause Meggy and Tari to have difficulty keeping up.
The speed of all the targets forces Tari to activate Expert Mode, causing her to shoot all of the targets without fail, shocking Mario, SMG4, and Meggy. After Tari ends up scoring infinity points, Meggy is at first distraught at being defeated, but is later amazed by Tari's incredible skills and begs her to teach her, causing Tari to reveal a groundbreaking secret: she is a cyborg. Meggy then carries Tari off to get started on practice while Mario and SMG4 go to be the first to claim the Eggman Football for themselves.
However, it turns out the Eggman Football Mario and SMG4 wanted to get was actually 100,000,000 tickets instead of 100,000. Bob offers Mario and SMG4 a plastic toy comb, but Mario and SMG4 started to cry. However, Meggy and Tari come back with just enough tickets to obtain the football. SMG4 asks if the tickets were for them, and Meggy agrees to give the tickets as long as SMG4 and Mario share the prize. With the Eggman Football at long last obtained, Mario and SMG4 happily leave the carnival, with Meggy following.
Meggy appears alongside Tari at Glitchcon 2018, bored with all the pop culture on the convention. Later, she tries to teach Tari how to aim and throw a basketball correctly but gets hit on the face by the ball on the process. Later, Tari notices Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima and immediately wanted his autograph. With that being said, Meggy tried to bring him over Tari so she could meet him.
After a bit of a “fight” with Mario to get Kojima, she realized Kojima had a T-Pose mushroom and was planning to turn Mario into a T-Pose zombie. She pushed him out of the way before the Shroom exploded, sacrificing herself for Mario's safety, ending up as Patient Zero of the second outbreak of T-pose zombies and becoming a T-Pose zombie once again. Later, when Tari emerged from the bargain bin, she found, to her horror, Meggy among Waluigi's T-posing zombie army alongside Luigi and Bowser.
She reappears as a T-Pose Zombie again, somehow crying after being embraced by Tari.
In this episode, Mario and SMG4 are challenged to scare her. Mario uses several different techniques, but fails and is thrown into a trash can. On the other end of the spectrum, SMG4 simply has Fishy Boopkins spend time with Meggy and wins. She is returned to normal after SMG4 and Tari destroy Waluigi's staff. During the rap, she kicks a mind-controlled Bob and tells Waluigi his tyranny is coming to an end. She then appears as part of the live studio audience in the Dr. SMG3 show.
In this episode, she appears as one of the girls along with Tari and Saiko Bichitaru who waited at the auditorium for the boys to be done dressing up. She later joked on how girls were supposed to take longer than boys.
She arrives in a fire truck with Saiko to save Fishy Boopkins from the well. Meggy's strategy was to fill the well with water (later confirmed by Swagmaster69696969696 to be vodka), so Boopkins can float to the top. While effective, the plan was unsuccessful, as Boopkins was too heavy to float.
In this episode, she makes a team with Tari and Saiko to steal internet from other people in motorcycles. They later end up helping Mario and SMG4 to recover all the internet from SMG3 after learning the truth about the internet drought.
She appears as one of the many people Bob invited to his mansion to celebrate Thanksgiving. Bob assigned her to help cook the turkey, where after Bowser told her to paint the pre-made turkey with oil, goes a bit too ecstatic after hearing the word "Paint", and paints virtually the entire kitchen with oil. Since there was too much oil, she eventually creates a fire big enough to burn the mansion down, which it does.
She appears in a flashback while Bob was telling Boopkins the truth.
In this episode, she takes (with Saiko and Tari) Fishy Boopkins to a Bob Rap Concert, but he ends up crying and running away. Then, Meggy and Tari take Boopkins to the Maid Cafe, which makes Boopkins happy, or at least for now. Meggy immediately regrets the decision and when she sees Heavy Weapons Guy in a maid suit, she ends up fainting.
She appears in Peach's Castle with the others when Luigi broke in to reveal the horrible news about Bob. She didn't believe it at first but was horrified to hear Bob's insults on her (calling her "Annoying Squid Girl (with a voice like screeching metal)"). She then forms a plan with the others to give him a lesson. Later, she helps get their back on Bob by being a guitarist and backup singer in Saiko singing Darkest Hour. Finally, at the end of the episode, she is seen in a bar celebrating with all her friends.
Meggy along with the group does not approve of Bob's Christmas present, despite Bob reassuring her voice is almost as good as his. Now fed up, like the rest, she orders Bob to leave. However, later on, Meggy tells Bob that what he said at the mall was actually honest and kind, allowing them to forgive him.
In this episode, Meggy comes to Mario's rescue as his lawyer, and convinces Judge Chungus to allow Mario to be their salesman and saves him from being killed by the Chungus Tribe. The plan goes well until Judge Chungus fires him. Despite this, Mario doesn't say thank you. (Or him literally telling her "f*ck you" is just his way of trying to get a thanking across while in a bad mood. After all, he lost his position as a Lvl. 100 King and back to a Lvl. 0 Crook.)
Meggy is on Team Spicy and put in charge of frosting. Bowser stops her from destroying his kitchen with ink a second time. Not liking that, she goes to the Time-Out zone alongside Mario. Later on, she tries saving SMG4 from the tentacle monster but is ultimately captured herself, forcing SMG4 to relent. Afterward, she follows Mario's assumption that Bowser died from how delicious their cake was, and Team Spicy was victorious. She celebrates her presumed victory with the rest of the team.
She appears at the start having her Splatfest training on Tari who was naturally running away. She later gets flashbacks to SMG4: Mario waits for pizza and naturally refused to be the judge for Bob and Boopkins' challenge, causing Tari to take her place.
She appears at the start finding Mario for her Splatfest training. Towards the end, she finds him but seeing that Mario was caught in a middle of a gang war, proceeds to call both sides childish for fighting over a drink before taking Mario and Tari to her Splatfest training.
In this episode, she tries to train Mario, Luigi and Tari to prepare for the upcoming Splatfest by giving them hard courses, but when they fail, she gets angry at them and leaves to have some privacy on top of a roof of a building. When Mario, who followed her, asks her what's wrong, she admits that she hasn't won a single Splatfest and that she was mean to him and her friends, before breaking down crying. Mario comforted her by offering her the spaghetti at the previous course, before Luigi and Tari appear and forgive her for her past behavior. Meggy then trains them again with easier courses, which they pass much to her satisfaction.
After the training, she and her friends are ambushed by Desti and her minions, who proceed to steal their weapons and fly away in their helicopter, but not before Mario tries to stop them and fails. Meggy then announces that it's time to kick some Octoling ass.
At the start, she is seen cleaning her Splatshot when Luigi comes in with food to which Meggy accepts. She is also seen when the gang comes in to hear Axol's plan. When he claims that he needs ink from his hometown, Inkopolis, Meggy appears to be shocked and curious. During the backstory, when Axol said that Inklings all hated anime, Meggy gets uncomfortable and says that it's probably in their DNA.
As an Inkling girl, Meggy has long orange tentacles, orange ink color, light skin, and pink eyes. Unlike other Inklings, she usually wears three pieces of head equipment as opposed to only one. They are the Studio Headphones, Pilot Goggles and the Short Beanie.
The rest of her gear set contains the Zink Layered LS and the Octoling Boots. The Studio Headphones is the only gear piece that appear to be retained throughout her other appearances where she wears different gear sets, although it has been removed once in War of the Fat Italians 2018 because of Mario. She usually uses the Splattershot, specifically the design from the original Splatoon, as her weapon of choice. However, she is shown using multiple main, sub and special ink weapons as well, majority of which coming from the original Splatoon.
In SMG4: Wild, Wild Mario, Meggy's Short Beanie is replaced by a typical cowboy hat, something that is not found in both Splatoon and Splatoon 2.
In SMG4: The Movie Audition, Meggy wears four pieces of headgear. In addition to her usual three, she also wears the Tinted Shades but colored black. She does not wear any clothing gear. Instead, she wears a simple black shirt.
In SMG4: Mario University, SMG4: The Mario Hustle and SMG4: Mario's Big Chungus Hunt; Meggy wears four pieces of headgear again. However, this time, she also wears the Black Arrowbands. The rest of her outfit consists of the School Uniform.
In SMG4: The Mario Mafia, Meggy's Pilot Goggles are absent while her Short Beanie is replaced by the Special Forces Beret. However, unlike in Splatoon, where its color is always set to match the Inkling's ink color, it appears as pink instead of orange. Her clothing is the Black Inky Rider. She has the same headgear set in SMG4: Final Fantasy Mario while her clothing is the Blue Sailor Suit and the skirt from the School Uniform.
In SMG4: Mario and... The Well, Meggy wears a firefighter hat with safety goggles while retaining her Studio Headphones. Her clothing is the Hero Jacket Replica from the original Splatoon and her shoes are brown-colored Angry Rain Boots.
In SMG4: Mad Mario and SMG4: Mario and The Diss Track, Meggy's Studio Headphones have small horns. Her clothing is the Neo Octoling Armor and her shoes are the Moto Boots. Whenever she rides a motorcycle In SMG4: Mad Mario, she also wears a fourth headgear, which is the Skull Bandana.
In SMG4: Final Hours, Meggy's form changed, owing to the fact that an excessive amount of ink was extracted by The Ink Zuccer 2000 (leaving less ink to compose her body), changing her from an Inkling into a human form.
Meggy is frequently displayed as a tomboy who enjoys playing sports and competing in multiple challenges, her main sport of interest being Turf Wars. She can be very competitive and will usually take whatever challenge that is thrown at her. The most notable instance of this is in The Mario Channel: MARIO'S CHALLENGE, as Meggy is one of the few contestants who cares more about the value of winning rather than the prize that Mario promises.
Meggy also has a very smug sense of humor, as she frequently throws snide remarks and taunting gestures at her opponents. Particular examples include telling Mario that she mistook him for a big red target when she accidentally shot him and when she sticks her tongue out at Bowser during Mario's Challenge after rebounding from his attempts to sabotage the Gauntlet. Meggy also seems to enjoy jokes based on stupidity, as she occasionally finds Mario's idiotic actions and phrases to be funny.
However, Meggy also has a bit of a sensitive side, as she hates losing and is hard on herself when her best efforts fail or don't prove to be good enough. Even so, she is able to rebound and regain her confidence fairly quickly, which she seemed to learn from Mario's confusing but well-intentioned advice.
Meggy is almost never portrayed negatively, however it has been demonstrated multiple times that in certain levels that she is a narcissist. Such as her aforementioned smug sense of humor: she temps to taunts her opponents when she feels like she wins against them. Overall, she likes showing off her abilities while being completely aware that she is smarter, skilled, and talented than everyone else around her. On the other hand, she becomes extremely sad and upset when she loses against her opponents. And when she feels insulted. she tends to take those comments unnecessarily seriously. This does not mean that she doesn't care about others; rather, she just has a bit of an ego. In SMG4: The Melancholy of Fishy Boopkins, she is shown to be interrupting Luigi's reasons why Boopkins are sad.
In SMG4: Meggy's Bootcamp, she acts like a strict, stern, and harsh mentor-like personality.
Powers and Abilities
Don't think too highly of Meggy just yet, she does have definite weaknesses. And unlike characters like Mario, she hasn't proven to survive explosions, gunfire, etc.
