- The correct title of this article is #13 shade. The substitution of the # symbol with the "fullwidth" ＃ symbol is due to technical restrictions.
#13 shade is a song that is heard during Labyrinth Station, Cubular Station, House Party Station, and Can't Touch This Station in the Octo Expansion, which tend to take place in tight, narrow environments. The song is a mysterious-sounding lo-fi track that begins with a simple intro, consisting of a very low pitched bass synthesizer drone with some percussion before the introduction of some (presumably) Octoling vocals, and then transitions back to the same composition as the intro, now with the addition of some background production. The song was first heard as a snippet during the Catalog Mix released in the run-up to the release of the Octo Expansion, being the second song played in the video.
Heard only in Fake Plastic Station, this version is mostly the same as the main version, however, the vocals have been removed.
- #13 shade is one of two songs in the Octo Expansion by Dedf1sh with more than one version, with the other one being #5 thirsty.
Shade may refer to areas where light does not reach, or (in slang) subtle, snarky insults. The former definition refers to this song being played in stations with enclosed environments (besides Can't Touch This Station), while the latter may refer to the snarky tone of the vocals heard in the song.
