Murch is a sea urchin, looking similar to Spyke other than the fact Murch has only one eye. Like Spyke, he has orange skin and green eyes, though with a purple iris and blue pupil. He wears a purple bandana with designs similar to Spyke's poncho, a white t-shirt with with black sleeves, black jean shorts, and blue shoes.
Similar to Spyke in Splatoon, Murch offers services that tweak abilities on gear. In addition to the same services Spyke offered, he provides a new service called gear scrubbing. Gear scrubbing wipes a gear item clean of its filled sub ability slots, turning it back into an item with no slots filled. However, all abilities removed in this manner (and when re-rolling abilities) are turned into collectibles called "ability chunks". When enough ability chunks of the same kind are collected, they can be converted back into the corresponding ability and be put freely into a sub-ability slot on any gear. If ability chunks are used on a slot that is already filled, the new ability will replace the slot's contents and the old ability will be converted into an ability chunk.
He can also deliver orders made via SplatNet on the Nintendo Switch Online app.
- The briefcase next to Murch can be seen slightly open. Inside the briefcase, some Super Sea Snails without shells can be seen. Murch can also be heard playing Squid Jump from Splatoon.
- Some of Murch's dialog suggests he looks up to Spyke.
- Murch seems to be based on the Echinothrix calamaris (banded sea urchin).
Murch's name is a corruption of merch, short for merchandise and an allusion to his services.
