Off the Hook will have a role in the upcoming Octo Expansion, where they both have different outfits.
- On February 10, 2018, Off the Hook had their first real-life debut in a concert called "Haikaraibu" (Japanese: ハイカライブ, translating to "Inkopolis Live"), held at Tokaigi 2018. They performed all of their songs, except for Fest Zest. New lyrics were also featured for most of their songs. They also collaborated with the Squid Sisters in the final song, Now or Never!.
- On March 31, 2018, at the Splatoon European Championships at Polymanga in Switzerland, a second Splatoon virtual concert starring Off the Hook was held outside of Japan for the first time. It was an English version of the previous concert at Tokaigi 2018.
- On April 28, 2018, another "Haikaraibu" concert was held at Chokaigi 2018. Their new song "Nasty Majesty' was performed live for the very first time.

- Off the Hook's Dutch, French, German, and Italian names resemble the English name for the Pokémon Tentacool.
- They share similarities and have similar designs with the Squid Sisters.
- They all have beauty marks.
- They all wear gloves. The Squid Sisters wear white gloves and Off the Hook wear black fingerless gloves.
- They all wear tights consisting of their main colors.
- Pearl and Marie have light colored tentacles, and Marina and Callie have dark tentacles.
- Pearl and Callie have a pink color scheme as Marie and Marina have a green color scheme.
- Pearl and Marie wear a dress, and Marina and Callie's outfits consist of shorts.
- Pearl has golden eyes with plus-shaped pupils and Marina has eyelashes like the Squid Sisters.
- They're both expressive and excitable like Callie, and sassy and sarcastic like Marie.
- In their Japanese text, Pearl and Callie extend syllables with ー, while Marie and Marina extend syllables with ～
- Callie and Marie's first song, Calamari Inkantation brought them success similar to how Pearl and Marina's first recording of Ebb & Flow brought them theirs.
- In contrast to the Squid Sisters, Off the Hook produces their own songs.
- 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. 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).
- Their outfits in the Octo Expansion resemble those worn by late rappers The Notorious B.I.G. (Pearl) and Tupac Shakur (Marina).
- A previously unheard Off The Hook song (Nasty Majesty) was used as the music for the Nintendo Direct preview for Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion.
- When looking at them long enough in Inkopolis Square, Marina will wave at the player with Pearl glaring before smiling with a pose.
- When the player looks at them long enough while as an Octoling, Pearl will notice them first instead and both she and Marina will notice that they're Agent 8 from Octo Expansion and both of them will give the player a determined pose instead.
- The Octo Expansion reveals that Ebb & Flow was Off the Hook's first song and has three reiterations of it in the Expansion.
- Marina made a demo tape by herself with a half-broken keyboard on Mount Nantai before she met Pearl.
- An "Octo" re-recording of the chorus (with some different lyrics) plays when there's one minute left on Turf War on the NILS Statue.
- A choral version of it plays when Commander Tartar is destroyed and Inkopolis is saved at the ending.
