Let's introduce a familiar song in Salmon Run.

Listening to it, I feel like I have to go to a part-time job, and I'm going to be fidgety.

— Japanese Splatoon Twitter[1]

Deluge Dirge is a song performed by ω-3.


Deluge Dirge utilises cellos, timpanis and electronic production for a march-like anthem.

Salmon Run tutorial music

A stripped back version of the track serves as the Tutorial music for Salmon Run.



Deluge refers to a severe flood, referencing both the flooding of the stages in Salmon Run, and also the large waves of Salmonids could be seen as a flood. Dirge is a solemn song or poem, associated with mourning, this could ever refer to the mass defeat of Salmonids in Salmon Run matches, or possibly the Salmonids intend to it as a funeral song for the Grizzco workers.
