Audio file

Shooting Starfish is a song performed by Turquoise October.


Shooting Starfish is an electronic song with fast, short notes and a strong drum beat in the background. After a while, the vocals join in, occasionally pausing before continuing. Later on, the vocals transition into a more choppy rhythm. After this section, the vocals change back into a connected melody. If the vocals in this section of the song are reversed, Callie singing the melody to Maritime Memory can be heard, symbolizing her being brainwashed.

This song can be heard in Splatoon 2 in the Octo Canyon missions Octozeppelin Invasion, Dancing Floors, Towering Heights, and Platform Madhouse. It can also be played in Squid Beatz 2, with the maximum scores of 127 and 313 in Normal and Hard modes, respectively.

Other versions

Shooting Starfish (Single-Player Trailer)

This early version of the song was first used in the official trailer for Octo Canyon. The very beginning of the song features notes gradually increasing as a transition from Octo Eight-Step in the trailer. Some other changes are that there are a couple of extra repeating notes and the vocals are removed in certain areas. The song ends with a strong ending as four notes go from low to high slowly, followed by a loud echo.

Samples and interpolations

Inkopolis Memorial Mixtape

Shooting Starfish is heard at the beginning of the Inkopolis Memorial Mixtape in between Cephaloparade and Octo Eight-Step. Unlike many of the other songs used, there are no changes to Shooting Starfish in the mixtape.


Shooting Starfish refers to both shooting stars, a phenomenon in space; and starfish, a sea creature, just like the other characters in Splatoon 2.
