Learning Curve is a song by C-Side.


Learning Curve is C-Side's version of Battle Defeat. If the player wins a battle, Rinse/Repeat will play instead, and the player's team along with their emotes, weapons, fits, and splashtags with be showcased. Learning Curve is more of an upbeat battle song, though it still conveys gloominess like in Splatoon. 12 seconds in, the guitar and bass cut out and replaced by a solo drum track, similar to Rinse/Repeat, Ageshio Notte Mōteru and Shinsan Name Manta.
