Metalopod is a song performed by Squid Squad.


Metalopod is one of the five multiplayer songs released with Splatoon at launch. Like all battle songs, it has a random chance of being played during online matches. Unlike the other songs by Squid Squad, Metalopod is a heavy metal song, featuring deep guitar and bass riffs at the forefront and deep, husky vocals by Ikkan, the band's bassist. In addition, there is backing from drums and brief synthesizer solos throughout the song. During the chorus, the song briefly picks up pace featuring different vocals, but it is unknown who sings these vocals.

It was first heard in a trailer showing off stages in Splatoon, playing when Blackbelly Skatepark was being shown.

In the Super Smash Bros. series

The song is also featured in the soundtrack of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, directly lifted from Splatoon.



Metalopod is a portmanteau of "metal" and "cephalopod."
