Splatoon 2 All Amiibo Unlockable Items
For starters, it's not just the Splatoon 2 Amiibo that can be used with Splatoon 2, as you can also use the original Splatoon Amiibo, that released back with the original game on the Wii U in 2015. To use Amiibo in Splatoon 2, simply head to the giant Amiibo box in Inkopolis Square and interact with it, where you'll be prompted to scan a Splatoon Amiibo on your right joycon.
Splatoon 2 Inkling Boy Amiibo
When you've scanned the Splatoon 2 Inkling Boy Amiibo, you'll immediately be given the Squinja Mask, Squinja Suit, and Squinja Shoes items. When equipped, these items will give you the Special Saver, Swimming Speed Boost, and Faster Respawn abilities, respectively.
Splatoon 2 Inkling Girl Amiibo
When you scan the Splatoon 2 Inkling Girl Amiibo using the giant Amiibo box in Inkopolis Square, you'll be given the School Cardigan, Squid Clip-Ons, and the Fringed Loafers. The items listed will give you the Run Speed Up, Opening Gambit, and the Cold-Blooded abilities, each.
Splatoon 2 Inkling Squid Amiibo
Scanning in the Splatoon 2 Inkling Squid Amiibo will give the player access to the Power Mask Mk 1, Power Armor Mk 1, and Power Boots Mk 1 items. Equipping these items on your own Inkling will give you the boosts of Ink Resistance Up, Ink Resistance Up (again), and Bomb Defence Up, respectively.
Splatoon Marie Amiibo

Splatoon Inkling Girl Amiibo
Just like the Inkling Boy Amiibo, the Inkling Girl Amiibo from the original Splatoon can be used to gain bonus items in Splatoon 2. The items unlocked with this Amiibo are the School Hairclip, School Uniform, and School Shoes, which give the bonuses of Ink Saver, High Recovery Speed, and Faster Swimming, respectively.
