These guys are the Chirpy Chips. With their sea anemone lead singer and a sparkling electronic sound, this unique four-piece has been setting the Inkopolis Top 40 on fire! Take a listen to their latest single, Shellfie, which is also the background music you’ll be hearing during battles now!

The Chirpy Chips (NA/EU/OC), or ABXY (JP), is a four-person chiptune-style band. Their songs were added in Splatoon's August Update.


Main article: Music

The Chirpy Chip's songs include Shellfie and Split and Splat; both can be heard during multiplayer battles.


  • The Chirpy Chips are the first band in Splatoon to have their name changed for localization. Their original Japanese name, ABXY, is likely a reference to the Button1 A.png, Button1 B.png, Button1 X.png, and Button1 Y.png buttons on the Wiiu-gamepad-icon.png Wii U GamePad and other Nintendo controllers.
    • The text on their album art loosely resembles this name.
    • Additionally, the format of their Japanese name is likely a reference to the Japanese chiptune band YMCK, which has a similar style of music.
  • The first member wears a shirt with a design with what could be the Inkling version of Button1 ZR.png.
  • Like Annie, the third member from the left is a sea anemone, with similar eyes and a fish in her "hair".
  • The design on the fourth member's shirt is a reference to the cover art for Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon.
  • The Heavy Splatling Remix appears to be a Chirpy Chips-themed weapon: it has a sticker on the side with their name in Inkling, its color scheme is similar to that of their album art, and "Remix" may be a reference to their electronic style. However, this connection is never addressed in-game.
