This method only works in the game’s local, 1v1 Battle Dojo local multiplayer mode, but it’s still strange and kind of awesome.
To use this input method, on the controller selection screen for Battle Dojo, press and hold down on the +Control Pad, press and hold B, and then press ZR and ZL.
“It seems a Wii Remote Plus is necessary to perform this incredible feat. This technique also appears to be possible when using a Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro!” Nintendo said on Splatoon’s official Tumblr. “When using a Wii U Pro Controller, first press ZL and ZR to select that as your controller, and then press the 2 Button on the Wii Remote Plus to activate it.”
How you keep those controllers stuck together is up to you.
