Cohocks are a type of Salmonid that appear in Salmon Run in Splatoon 2 and Splatoon 3.

They are similar to Chums, but they can instantly splat players with their frying pans. Cohocks move slower than most Salmonids but can take far more damage before being splatted. Cohocks are significantly larger than Chums and also larger than some Boss Salmonids. During the event Cohock Charge, they are the only Lesser Salmonid to spawn.

Quotes

The following text is quoted from the Salmonid Field Guide.

Basic Information
  • They tend to appear in groups rather than alone.
  • Defeating them will earn you Power Eggs.
Attack Behavior
  • They use their sense of smell to locate and close in on targets who have entered their territory.
  • Once they close in on a target, they perform close-range attacks using frying pans or other cookware.
Elimination
  • Can be neutralised relatively easily with a direct hit of ink.
Supporting Information
  • They inhabit a restricted ocean zone, and any unauthorised contact with them is expressly forbidden by law.
  • The larger Cohock moves slowly but packs a real punch with direct, strong attacks.
  • On their own, they don't pose a significant threat, but ignore them and you may quickly find yourself surrounded.

Trivia

  • Cohocks are able to jump to unlimited heights in order to stop players from clinging to a wall the entire wave.
    • When jumping, Lesser Salmonids flail their arms and tail fin around like a real salmon does when leaping out of the water.

Etymology

The Cohock's name could be a combination of the name of a real type of salmon, the Coho salmon, and the mohawk hairstyle that it sports.
