Can anyone explain to me how this shit is NOT like bronies?

Bronies:
>like everything bright and colorful
>ponyisms like "everypony" and "anypony", referring to hair as "mane", etc.
>draw pony versions of everything, especially characters from other cartoons and video games
>random interjections like MUFFINS! and TWENTY PERCENT COOLER!
>creepily sexualizing the childlike characters, despite being at least twice as old as the intended target demo
>try to defend their neotenous obsession by stuttering out "d-deep lore, i-it's for all ages"

Splatoon fans:
>like everything bright and colorful
>squid-isms like "inkredible" and "tentacular", referring to hair as "tentacles", etc.
>draw squid versions of everything, especially characters from other cartoons and video games (pic related)
>random interjections like SPLATATATAT! and YOU'RE A KID NOW!
>creepily sexualizing the childlike characters, despite being at least twice as old as the intended target demo
>try to defend their neotenous obsession by stuttering out "d-deep lore, i-it's for all ages"

How can you look at Splatoon, even LOOK at it, and not cringe? Let alone fucking play it?
