Acid Hues is a song performed by Off the Hook.


Acid Hues is an electronic pop song, with both singers trading lines back and forth over a frantic yet energetic beat. It was one of three songs that had a chance of playing during Splatfest Regular Battles (more specifically, the "Splatfest match" version described below). It can also be heard in Squid Beatz 2 after hearing it in a Splatfest at least once, though this requirement has been removed as of Version 5.2.0.

The song is also featured in the soundtrack for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and by default, it has a chance of playing on Moray Towers, where a special Splatfest version of the stage is used if played. In World of Light, it can be heard in the sub-world Power Plant. It can also be heard in the Sounds section in the Vault menu.


The booklet included with Splatune 2 gives the official lyrics for Acid Hues. The lyrics are nonsensical; the Japanese hiragana and katakana simply give the pronunciation. According to a Famitsu interview,[1] the former is used to indicate Pearl's lyrics in Inkling language, whereas the latter is used to indicate Marina's lyrics in Octarian language.

Acid Hues Lyrics

Other versions

Acid Hues (Splatfest match)

During Splatfest matches, the version that plays removes a portion of the vocals from the verse after the song's two-minute mark, presumably to ensure a better transition to Now or Never! at the match's one-minute mark. Therefore, most of the changes can never be heard in-game.

Acid Hues (Live)

During live performances, an extended version of Acid Hues is used. Although each performance is different due to the live bands, they retain the same strong structure. The main difference from the regular version is a new rap verse by Pearl, along with a definite ending to the song. A recording of this version from their first live concert at Haicalive at Tokaigi 2018 can be found in Octotune.

At Tentalive at Tokaigi 2019 and Haicalive Kyoto Mix, the song is shortened and a different ending is used to segue into Color Pulse.


Acid refers to Acid music, which Off the Hook's music has influences of. Hues likely refers to the colors of ink seen during Turf Wars.
