Don't Slip is a song performed by Wet Floor.


Don't Slip is an upbeat, electronic rock song featuring a changing time signature, starting in 7/4 with an intro featuring two separate guitars, bass, and drums. One of the guitars drops out as Mizo starts singing in the Inkling language, but joins back in when Ryley starts singing. Roughly thirty seconds in, the vocals stop for a brief instrumental break featuring the guitars, bass, and drums, as the time signature switches to 4/4. After fifty seconds, a synth solo briefly takes over, followed by a small set of Inkling language lyrics before the song loops. It is one of the multiplayer themes included in Splatoon 2 at launch, with a random chance of playing during a match. It can also be heard in Squid Beatz 2, with a maximum score of 121 and 271 in Normal and Hard modes, respectively. In Splatoon 3, this song can sometimes play in the lobby.

The song is also featured in the soundtrack for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and by default, it has a chance of playing on Moray Towers. It can also be heard in the Sounds section in the Vault menu.



  • It is the only multiplayer battle theme that is not predominantly in 4/4 time.
