Mizuta Ahato (ミズタ アハト?), better known as DJ Dedf1sh, is a musician in Splatoon 2 whose songs were released as part of the Octo Expansion. Once a normal Octoling, she entered the underground test facility and became sanitized, losing her free will.

The Nintendo Dream Magazine revealed that Dedf1sh wanted to become sanitized, so she could give up her doubts and conflicts about production and devote herself entirely to music.


Dedf1sh's is a santized Octoling with light green skin. Her hair looks almost the same as most Octolings, but it is blue and like an Sanitized Octoling's hair instead of the usual red of a standard Octoling. Her hair is also worn down with a orangish pink color at the edges. She wears a black, loose-fitting shirt with her right shoulder revealed aswell as a white cap, grey headphones and a black to red bracelet on her left wrist. Unlike most Octolings, Dedf1sh also wears Octoling shades which conceals her eyes.


Songs written by Dedf1sh are: (The numbers and words are all part of the song names.)

As a curiosity, the name and order of the songs are what you feel when you get sanitized, it's on purpose to warn the next test subjects.

  • In her album art, Dedf1sh uses a series of turntables each with the number 8 on them and 8 buttons, corresponding to an octopus' number of arms, and Agent 8.
  • The background of the album art features the same logo seen on the CQ Card and C.Q. Cumber's hat.
  • The name Dedf1sh may be a reference to the DJ and musician known as deadmau5.
  • With the style of her tentacles, headphones, and colored fingertips, Dedf1sh bears a resemblance to Marina Ida.
  • She has long nails that are a redish color.
  • On the top left of the background it has some text in the Inkling (or possibly Octarian) language, that probably says the album name or artist name
