Icon for Membux.

Membux are a type of collectible currency in Splatoon 3: Side Order. They are awarded as a reward for completing a floor.

Description

The icon for Membux appears to be a stylized infinity sign with two vertical strokes through it, making it appear as a currency symbol.

Functionality

Membux are the main currency Agent 8 can obtain and use while traversing the Spire of Order. While their most prominent usage is to purchase various goods at the Vending Machine Corner floors, they can also be used to escape an uncleared floor, gain another chance when all lives are exhausted, or reroll the available floors or items available in the vending machine as long as the respective hack is active. At the end of every run, Membux are converted to points with a 1:1 ratio, or 1:100 rounded up to Prlz.

Mem likely comes from "memory", with bux coming from "bucks", a colloquial term for money. The English name and names in other languages suggest an association with mem cakes.
