|To entertain Inklings|
Off the Hook is a band in Splatoon 2. The two members of the duo are Pearl, a singer, and Marina, a disc jockey. The group seems to have the same role as the Squid Sisters in the first Splatoon, broadcasting a news segment to show the current maps and updates to the game and hosting Splatfests. The relation between Pearl and Marina is currently unknown.
Pearl can be recognized as the Inkling girl with white clothes and hair with highlights of her signature color, pink. Marina, on the other hand, is an Octoling with the signature color of light teal, though she has dark skin, clothing, and hair. The two seem to contrast with each other as Pearl's white design is opposite to that of Marina's black colors, and, furthermore, both of them have zippers that Pearl has pulled all the way up on her clothing while Marina has them pulled almost all the way down.
Off the Hook's news segment supposedly broadcasts every two hours, listing the current maps in rotation for Turf Wars and Ranked Battles. The two of them also lead the Splatfests as mascots like the Squid Sisters did in the first game. Pearl usually takes the side of the topic on the left while Marina takes the one on the right. The duo also performs songs together.
- Unlike their Squid Sister counterparts, their names do not seem to form a pun, though their names are related to aquatic entities (pearls for Pearl and "marine" for Marina).
- Both Pearl and Marina have headgear; Pearl wears a crown while Marina wears a pair of headphones.
- In Octo Expansion their designs are based off the acclaimed rappers Notorious B.I.G. (Pearl) and 2pac (Marina).
