Homing Arpeggios are Jelleton enemies in Splatoon 3: Side Order They target and chase down the player and explode when they hit a surface, similar to the Torpedo sub weapon. Homing Arpeggios spawn from Spawning Accordos' heads, during an Arpeggio Barrage or during boss fights.


Homing Arpeggios are mechanical fish mostly encased in black ink. They are internally white, except for their eyes and the red interior of the white parts. They have an esca on the top of their head that resembles a fuse. Homing Arpeggios seem to be based on anglerfish.


  • Shooting them before hitting the player prevents them from exploding.
  • Homing Arpeggios should generally be defeated first, as they are very dangerous when multiple are present at once. The player can be splatted in only two explosions.
  • Despite being hard to spot, Homing Arpeggios can be detected by their beeping sound, which accelerates as they get closer to the player.
    • A puffing sound is also heard when they spawn.


The following text is quoted from the Jelleton Field Guide.

Habitat: Near Spawning Accordos
These are the missiles that come
flying if you leave those weird
tree things alone. They home in
on you, but slowly, so don't panic."
Don't try to run from them, Eight!
They'll just chase you down. They
leave nasty ink splatters wherever
they hit too.
Yo, you do NOT want to take one
of these to the face. Get 'em
before it's too late, Eight!
Shoot 'em before they get you!

Homing refers to their mechanic of targeting and approaching the player. Arpeggio is a musical term for a way of playing the tones of a chord: instead of playing them simultaneously, they are heard in rapid succession.
