Spawning Accordos are Jelleton enemies in Splatoon 3: Side Order. They move very slowly and attack by spawning Homing Arpeggios.


Spawning Accordos are mechanical fish mostly encased in black ink. They are internally white, except their red eyes, which pop out of their sockets. Spawning Accordos have an esca on the top of their head that branches out into several seeds, which can release Homing Arpeggios to attack the player. They seem to be based on anglerfish. Certain species of anglerfish are known for their females being massive compared to their male counterparts, whom are able to "fuse" with females. There are typically multiple males attached to a female individual, resembling the relationship between the Spawning Accordo and its Homing Arpeggios.

While its esca resembles that of the football fish, it also resembles a ping-pong tree sponge; a species previously featured in Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion.


  • The seeds Spawning Accordos possess explode after being shot. If all of them are destroyed, the main body also explodes, damaging nearby Jelletons.
  • The number of Homing Arpeggios a Spawning Accordo can spawn at once is equal to the number of seeds it has remaining. If the player cannot destroy them all in one attack, they should try to take out as many as possible to reduce the threat it can pose.


The following text is quoted from the Jelleton Field Guide.

Habitat: Scenic elevations
The seeds growing out of them
become missiles that home in on
you. Never mind the base. Break
all the seeds, and they'll self-
destruct in a big explosion.
Destroying at least SOME of the seeds
is a good idea. Otherwise you'll
wind up with missiles seeking you
from every angle!
That sounds like work! Can't we
just go for the body? Ugh, looks
like it has WAY too much health
for that.
Treat those seeds like targets!

Spawning refers to their ability to spawn Homing Arpeggios. Accordo is the Italian word for "chord", a harmonic set of pitches consisting of multiple notes being played at the same time.
