Agent 8 viewing the first chat session.

Marina's chat room (stylized ♪MARINA'S CHAT★ROOM♪) is a series of chat logs available in the Octo Expansion.

During the Octo Expansion, Marina hacks into Agent 8's CQ-80 device and uploaded logs of some chat sessions that she wanted to share. The chat participants were Marina (DJ_Hyperfresh), Pearl (MC.Princess), Cap'n Cuttlefish (CraigCuttlefish), and Agent 2.

Unlocking

Chat sessions are unlocked by completing specific stations. Stations are grouped as detailed in the table below; these groupings are used internally by the game and not shown to the player. Beating any one station in a group will unlock the next chat log. Only one chat log can be unlocked per group. Chat logs will always unlock in the same order regardless of which group the player targets.

MC.Princess > Hit the caps lock key, cap
DJ_Hyperfresh > It should be the button in the lower left, depending on your phone.
DJ_Hyperfresh > Btw, I was able to hack into the CQ-80, so Agent 8 should be able to see our chat logs.

■Webmaster■ > MC.Princess has left the chatroom.
CraigCuttlefish > roger dodger
DJ_Hyperfresh > FYI - I've been using the CQ-80s coordinates to gather location data as Agent 8 passes each test.
DJ_Hyperfresh > This place must be deep beneath the surface. It seems to be under the influence of a powerful magnetic force...
DJ_Hyperfresh > Too powerful for conventional models to simulate actually. Based on the numbers I'm seeing, powerful enough to distort spacetime itself!
DJ_Hyperfresh > Captain, have you observed any abnormalities in your surroundings there?
CraigCuttlefish > IM0KoWrU
DJ_Hyperfresh > Uh... Is that supposed to be some kind of secret code? Or did you just butt text me?

CraigCuttlefish > H@nGrY4sUsH-E
DJ_Hyperfresh > Riiiiiiight...
DJ_Hyperfresh > Anyway, it's almost like your location is in a different dimension than Inkopolis.
DJ_Hyperfresh > As long as Agent 8 keeps passing tests, we should be able to figure out what's going on.
DJ_Hyperfresh > We'll support you as much as we can, Agent 8. Keep it up!

DJ_Hyperfresh > Can't believe that actually worked...
DJ_Hyperfresh > Anyway, nice work passing those tests, Agent 8.
DJ_Hyperfresh > Unfortunately, I haven't discovered anything new since our last chat log, so we're kinda stuck in the mud.
DJ_Hyperfresh > But in the meantime, I was thinking we could get to know each other better by posting pics of ourselves!
DJ_Hyperfresh > Here, I'll go first...
DJ_Hyperfresh > Octo Expansion chat session 3 image.png
DJ_Hyperfresh > Whoops. Wrong pic!
CraigCuttlefish > now what do we have here

CraigCuttlefish > agent 8 is also an octarian but also appreciates the inkantation
MC.Princess > It all makes sense now
DJ_Hyperfresh > I could tell right away that Agent 8 had also been touched by the Calamari Inkantation.

DJ_Hyperfresh > What's going on, Pearl?
MC.Princess > Just trying to teach an old squid new tricks. Cap here was typing in all caps again
DJ_Hyperfresh > That makes sense. You've got a knack for teaching. ♪
MC.Princess > What do you mean?
CraigCuttlefish > how do I make music notes
MC.Princess > Just click the smiley face to bring up the emoji panel. It's in there somewhere
DJ_Hyperfresh > Haha, remember when we first met, Pearl? I had just come to the surface, and I didn't understand Inkopolis at all. You taught me everything I needed to know.
MC.Princess > LOL yeah. I remember thinking you were some country bumpkin when we first met on Mt. Nantai.
CraigCuttlefish > ♪
DJ_Hyperfresh > I went to Mount Nantai every day for a week, just hoping you would show up again.
MC.Princess > Bahaha yeah, I thought you were a stalker. I remember you singing when I showed up and then out of nowhere you were all like "LET'S START A BAND!"
DJ_Hyperfresh > I just had a feeling about you. I guess it worked out, cause look at us now!
MC.Princess > I mean, that first song you showed me was fire, so I had to say yes
MC.Princess > Actually, I think I still have the file on my desktop. One sec...
MC.Princess > Boom
MC.Princess > Ebb&FlowDemo.frsh
DJ_Hyperfresh > HAHA YES. I haven't heard this in forever. This is the demo version of Ebb & Flow!
CraigCuttlefish > How do I make question marks
MC.Princess > You still here?
MC.Princess > The question mark should be in the bottom right of your keyboard. Knock yourself out
MC.Princess > LOL Marina I just remembered you made that entire demo using that half-busted keyboard you had. But somehow the hook was still dope
DJ_Hyperfresh > Couldn't have done it without you...and that ridiculous recording studio you have in your house. Those old-school drum machines are legit.
CraigCuttlefish > ?
MC.Princess > We're saying we could tell the track was bumpin. Try to keep up cap
DJ_Hyperfresh > I think maybe he's just... Actually, nevermind.
MC.Princess > Sorry about him.
DJ_Hyperfresh > I was shocked the first time I heard you rap. I thought for sure you were gonna be wack tbh, but once you started spittin I was like, "dang, this munchkin got bars."
MC.Princess > Haha shut up. Never underestimate the Pearl. aka MC Reverse Psychology, aka MC Danger Noodle
CraigCuttlefish > ???//?????////??/
MC.Princess > She's the DJ, I'm the rapper is what I'm saying, Cap! What don't you get about this?!
DJ_Hyperfresh > Anyway, I know we talk a lot of smack on the show and all, but I just wanted to say thanks. For everything.

Session 9

CraigCuttlefish > My name is Cuttlefish, but I don't cuddle with fish. My only wish is for a delicious dish.
MC.Princess > Maybe stick that one back in the oven, cap
■Webmaster■ > DJ_Hyperfresh has joined the chatroom.
DJ_Hyperfresh > Hey! ♪
MC.Princess > Yooo
CraigCuttlefish > Hello there
DJ_Hyperfresh > What are you guys up to?
MC.Princess > Just workshopping some rhymes
MC.Princess > The captain decided he wants to be a rapper, but he's not exactly comin correct with these rhymes yet
CraigCuttlefish > No fan of hip-hop is a foe of mine. I don't see genre.
DJ_Hyperfresh > I know! Let's look at one of Pearl's old verses. Back before she knew anything about meter or rhythm...
DJ_Hyperfresh >

Who need friends on this dark, cold night?

Not this rhymin' soldier—I'm a stark, bold knight!

On a higher level up here, can you feel me?

This Pearl's one of a kind, but my fam knows the real me!

CraigCuttlefish > Ooh this is on fire. You are a sickly rapper Pearl.
MC.Princess > Thanks?
MC.Princess > This is back when I was first comin up, before Marina and I met. I may not have known what I was doing, but I had heart
MC.Princess > Haha, remember this one? It only sold like 1000 copies...digital AND physical
MC.Princess > rec_bow_down_ball_gig08.mp8
DJ_Hyperfresh > I always liked this one... What's it called again?
MC.Princess > "#$@%* Dudes Be #$@%* Sleepin"
DJ_Hyperfresh > LOL that's right. I remember the stations refused to play it. For obvious reasons.
MC.Princess > But right after that we formed Off the Hook and recorded Ebb & Flow. That song sold like crabby cakes
CraigCuttlefish > Off what hook now?
MC.Princess > You seriously don't know? Geez old man. It's the name of the group me and Marina are in
CraigCuttlefish > Is it fresh?
MC.Princess > is it fresh? Come on my dude
MC.Princess > But furreal tho, the reviews of our first show had me worried for a minute there
DJ_Hyperfresh > Yeah, they described me as "the tall exotic-looking girl standing next to Pearl."
MC.Princess > BAHAHA
MC.Princess > Yeah, after that first show, the few fans I had kinda fell off
MC.Princess > But we won em back eventually.
MC.Princess > Good thing we did, or this Inkopolis News gig never woulda happened
DJ_Hyperfresh > Yeah, luckily our fourth single was a hit, right around the time Callie and Marie decided to move on
MC.Princess > We got really lucky with that Squid Sisters timing
CraigCuttlefish > Squid Sisters?
MC.Princess > Yeah cap, aren't those your grandkids?
MC.Princess > You know...
MC.Princess > Octo Expansion chat session 8 image.png
CraigCuttlefish > That reminds me. I should probably check in with them soon.
MC.Princess > They're probs worried about you
DJ_Hyperfresh > I'm sure they're keeping busy. I mean, their solo careers got so big, they outgrew Inkopolis News!
MC.Princess > Yo we've gotta up our networking game for real. We can't do Inkopolis News forever
DJ_Hyperfresh > Well we already have an offer from Humpback Pump Track to shoot a commercial. Once you learn how to ride without training wheels, of course.
MC.Princess > ...

CraigCuttlefish > No fan of the Inkantation is a foe of mine. I don't see species.
MC.Princess > Yeah... anyway, this is amazing!
DJ_Hyperfresh > I'm sure the Octolings will pick up the ins and outs of Inkling culture in no time! And hopefully add some of their own flavor too. ^_^

CraigCuttlefish > Is that so? ♪
DJ_Hyperfresh > And it sounds like some of them are already working for Grizzco!

Trivia

  • One of Pearl's nicknames for Marina, "DJ Cold Breakfast", is a reference to the European Splatfest from November 2017, which was between Warm Breakfast vs. Cold Breakfast. Marina sponsored Team Cold.
  • Cap'n Cuttlefish's quote "No fan of hip-hop is a foe of mine, I don't see genre" is a reference to his previous quote "No fan of the Inkantation is a foe of mine, I don't see species"
  • In the Russian localization, Cap'n Cuttlefish initially communicates with Pearl and Marina with the KOI-8 codepage. This causes his text to display incorrectly, leaving Pearl and Marina unable to understand him.[1]
  • The chat room is the first place to show the in-universe versions of file names: .frsh.
  • In the interview contained in Octotune, when asked what she does in her free time, Pearl mentions how she can't stop chatting online recently, a possible reference to Marina's chat room.
