The pickup message for disc pieces

Disc pieces are item pickups in Splatoon 3: Side Order, and appear as one-third pieces that resemble CDs.

When all three pieces are collected, the Pearl Drone uses her Step-Off Song, which knocks back nearby Jelletons in a wide area, stuns bosses, and temporarily prevents portals from spawning more Jelletons.

Disc pieces normally have a 1% chance of dropping from defeated enemies, which can be increased with color chips or the Lucky Chain. Damage from the Step-Off Song is also affected by Sound-Wave Damage color chips.

The Step-Off Song is a snippet of the Inkopolis News theme by Off the Hook.



Step-Off Song

"Step off" is a slang phrasal verb meaning to avoid or back down from a confrontation. Additionally, when initialized the name "Step-Off Song" matches that of the Morse code distress signal SOS, which has also entered common parlance as simply indicating crisis situations. Both of these meanings can be considered fitting for an ability that involves powerfully damaging or knocking away enemies and temporarily stopping their further appearance, as it both forces a temporary pause to battle and can save the player from a dangerous situation.
