Wave Prism is a song by Chirpy Chips.


Wave Prism is an upbeat chiptune and rock fusion song added to Splatoon 2 in Version 3.0.0, alongside Blitz It!. It begins with a short chiptune and drum intro, followed by the chiptune taking the main melody, backed by guitar, drums, and bass. Eventually, this is joined by the vocals, which alternate between the main and backup vocals twice, before leading into a section where the guitar takes the main melody, alternating with the main vocals. This leads into the chorus, with the chiptune once again taking the main melody alongside the main vocals, which are briefly joined by the backup vocals before a small guitar section leading into the song looping. The song can additionally be heard in Squid Beatz 2, with scores of 199 and 318 in Normal and Hard modes, respectively. It was first heard in a SplatoonJP Twitter post about the song.[1]

In Splatoon 3, this song can sometimes play in the lobby.
