Bob Dub, or Cala Marley(JP)[a], is a musician in the Splatoon series. He is not seen in-game and he is referred to only in Squid Beatz, Splatune, Squid Beatz 2 and Splatune 2. While his species is unknown, his Japanese name and the squids on his album art may suggest that he is an Inkling.

  • The Reggae Tee's design is based on Bob Dub's album art. Its English name references his genre of music, and it shares its Japanese name, "Ika Jamaica", with the Japanese name of Bob Dub's one song.
  • A computer screen showing Bob Dub's album art can be found at Ancho-V Games.


Dub is a reference to Dub music, an offshoot of reggae, while Bob may be a reference to reggae artist Bob Marley. This is further reinforced by his Japanese name of Cala Marley, which is also a homonym of the squid dish calamari. The members of the Squid Sisters, Callie and Marie, share a very similar naming pun.
