Shark Bytes is a song performed by Off the Hook.

Description

Shark Bytes is an electronic song performed in a retro style similar to the aesthetics of the Octo Expansion. It opens with Marina singing alone over electronic beats. Pearl shortly replaces her with rapping afterwards, although Marina eventually repeats her verse over Pearl's rapping. The music intensifies for the chorus, mostly featuring Marina with some rapping by Pearl. After this, the song loops.

Lyrics

The booklet included with Octotune gives the official lyrics for Shark Bytes. The lyrics are nonsensical; the Japanese hiragana and katakana simply give the pronunciation. According to a Famitsu interview,[1] the former is used to indicate Pearl's lyrics in Inkling language, whereas the latter is used to indicate Marina's lyrics in Octoling language.

Other versions

The Plan

Main article: The Plan

At one point, The Plan interpolates Marina's singing from Shark Bytes in the form of some background note melodies.

Shark Bytes (Live)

During live concerts starring only Off the Hook, an extended version of Shark Bytes is used. Although each performance is different due to the live bands, they retain the same strong structure. The intro is greatly extended to allow for Off the Hook to have a "costume change" and return on-stage. In the second loop of the song, Pearl's rap before the chorus is removed, and there is a new guitar-heavy instrumental after the second chorus, continuing with the end of the verse and another chorus. The song is also given a definitive ending with an instrumental based on the intro.

Shark Bytes (Final Fest)

This version was heard as a Splatfest battle theme during the first day of Chaos vs. Order. It remains mostly the same, but most of the intro is removed and the break before the loop is longer.

Trivia

  • In the Chaos vs. Order trailer, a shorter, more dramatic version with no vocals or electronic sounds is used, based on Marina's repeating vocals.

Etymology

Shark Bytes is a pun on 'shark bites', instead referencing computer bytes, in fitting with the retro style of the game.
