Broken Coral is a song performed by Ink Theory.


Broken Coral is one of the five multiplayer songs released in Splatoon 2 Version 2.0.0. Like all battle songs, it has a random chance of being played during online matches. Broken Coral is a jazz-samba fusion piece, featuring frantic and dissonant piano and trumpet instrumentals as the main sound, backed by drums, electric guitar, and bass. It is currently the only multiplayer track in the series currently to feature no vocals whatsoever. The song was first heard on the SplatoonJP Twitter[1] and Live from Squid Research Lab Tumblr[2] on November 22, 2017, alongside Riptide Rupture. It was the first song played in the video.

Other versions

Broken Coral (Splatune)

The Splatune 2 version of the track, in contrast to the version heard in-game, is missing the reverb effect heard on the trumpet, up until the chorus. Afterwards, the two versions are identical.


  • Despite Ink Theory having both a dedicated kazoo player and exotic drummer, neither of those instruments can be heard in this piece. However, there are separate electric guitar and bass sections.
