    • They all wear gloves. The Squid Sisters wear white gloves. Off the Hook wear black fingerless gloves.
    • They all wear tights consisting of their main colors.
    • Pearl and Marie have white colored tentacles, and Marina and Callie have black tentacles.
    • Pearl and Callie have a pink color scheme. Marie's color scheme is green, and Marina's is teal (a combination of blue and green).
    • Pearl and Marie wear a dress, and Marina and Callie's outfits consist of shorts.
    • Pearl has golden eyes with plus-shaped pupils, like the Squid Sisters. And Marina has eyelashes like the Squid Sisters.
    • They're both expressive and excitable like Callie, and sassy and sarcastic like Marie.
  • In contrast to the Squid Sisters, Off the Hook produces their own songs.[3]
  • The holes in their zippers are the shapes as their eye pupils, and the zippers are the same colors as thier eyes.
  • In the liner notes that come with Splatune 2, Pearl's lyrics are rendered in hiragana, while Marina's lyrics are in katakana. In an interview with Famitsu, Toru Minegishi says that this is because Marina sings in a different in-universe language.[3] This is consistent with DJ Octavio's in-game text and some of her own text during the TV show (making it seem her text is said part in Inkling language, and part in Octarian).
