Harmony is a character in the Splatoon series. She is a sea anemone who serves as the singer of the band Chirpy Chips in Splatoon and Splatoon 2 and runs the general store Hotlantis in Splatsville in Splatoon 3. Prior to Splatoon 3, she was unnamed in languages besides Japanese.

She is accompanied by an unnamed clownfish in her hair. According to HaikaraWalker, it is dying from neglect.[1]

Appearance

Harmony is a humanoid sea anemone with a skinny build. She has pale skin and long pink tentacles with green and yellow tips that serve as her hair. She wears a black T-shirt with neon green and pink patterns, a short light-green skirt with black shorts underneath, and a black and yellow striped hat with a red and green brim. She also wears multi-colored bracelets around her left hand and in her hair and blue boots with yellow straps and soles and red insides. She is accompanied by a black-and-white-striped clownfish that lives in her hair.

Personality and traits

Harmony has been described as a relaxed sea anemone that goes her own way.[2] She seems to be easily distracted, as she can be seen fidgeting with a device resembling an Ultra Hand when the player enters Hotlantis. Official promotional material for Splatoon 3 describes her as an artist, and it is mentioned she used to be a regular customer at Hotlantis. Due to the manager's frequent absence, she runs the store instead, selling its merchandise to its customers.

She also serves as the lead singer, synthesizer player, and frontwoman for Chirpy Chips. According to HaikaraWalker, she is in charge of the visuals of the band. She exhibits peculiar movements when singing and speaks in a loose manner between songs, which is popular with fans. Due to her voice being altered in the music, she usually lip syncs during live performances. She often lacks motivation, and shows up late to band practice. Additionally, she neglects to care for the clownfish that lives in her hair, and it is dying as a result.[1]

Fortunately, cool stickers and other decorations can be obtained locally at Hotlantis. Nobody knows the store better than Harmony, who has spent so much time shopping there that the owner pretty much leaves her in charge. Check in daily for a rotating selection of goodies!

The lead singer of the Chirpy Chips goes her own way.
This relaxed sea anemone runs Hotlantis, the general store in Splatsville. She’s not the manager or anything—she’s a frequent customer who sort of took over the job. You can visit Harmony to pick up decorations for your in-game locker and other stuff like stickers and posters.
