— Music Fish to Alice Liddell[1]

The Music Fish is a large oceanic creature in the Deluded Depths of Wonderland. He was the musical talent for the Carpenter's show, Totentanz, but was not present in the actual show itself.[2]


Alice: Madness Returns[]

Alice talking to Music Fish

Alice and the Music Fish.

The Music Fish was the musical talent for Carpenter's show. However, it was apparent that he has no vocal talent and his voice is similar to off-key instruments and singing voices. Alice assisted him and freed his instruments from the ruin slime for the instruments to play into the pipes that let him hear its own performance.

After clearing the obstruction, the Music Fish encountered another problem with the timing. Alice helped him carry a tune in order for him to "perfect" his composition. He then expressed his gratitude and asked her to wake the performers up with it.[1]

He was later seen at the lobby of Dreary Lane Theatre with Octopus, just before the beginning of the show. Although supposedly one of the main aspects of the show, he was not seen or heard during it.[2]


Music Fish appearance

The Music Fish.

The Music Fish's overall appearance is that of a glass bottle. His eyes are protruding just above his shoulder and his mouth is the literal mouth of the bottle. His scales, gills, and dorsal fin are on the cylindrical body and his pelvic fins are on the shoulder of the bottle. His tail and anal fins are located on the base part.


  • According to Ken Wong, the Music Fish's appearance is a bottle because "there used to be bottles in the ice area that also contained sound."[3]
