Ego Overboard is an upbeat track used as the battle victory song in Splatfest Battles in Splatoon 3, replacing Rinse/Repeat which normally plays outside of Splatfests. The main section lasts for about 14 seconds, which consists of electronic music with Shiver and Frye chanting cheerfully. Big Man can also be heard signing the three ending notes with them. After that, the music is replaced by a solo drum track, similar to Rinse/Repeat, Learning Curve, and Still Swimmin'. The solo drum track has the same drum beats as that of Rinse/Repeat, but with different drum samples.
Victory themes (Shiver vs. Frye vs. Big Man Splatfest)
During the Shiver vs. Frye vs. Big Man Splatfest, each team had its own version of the battle victory theme, with the theme corresponding to the player's team being used. These themes are variations of Ego Overboard featuring vocals performed by each idol individually as well as additional instrumentation matching the idol's signature style. Starting from the Friday vs. Saturday vs. Sunday and Red Bean Paste vs. Custard vs. Whipped Cream Splatfests, these versions play specifically after a 10×, 100×, or 333× Battle.

Victory theme (Zombie vs. Skeleton vs. Ghost Splatfest)
During the Zombie vs. Skeleton vs. Ghost Splatfest, a special Splatoween variation of Ego Overboard played as the battle victory theme. This variation of the song features more Halloween-themed instrumentation and a reworked "spookier" melody, and ends with Shiver and Frye performing an exaggerated cackle akin to that of a stereotypical witch.
Victory theme (Friends vs. Family vs. Solo Splatfest)
During the Friends vs. Family vs. Solo Splatfest, a special FrostyFest variation of Ego Overboard played as the battle victory theme. This variation of the song features more holiday-themed instrumentation and a melody that incorporates the refrain from the traditional Christmas carol "Joy to the World".
"Overboard" is principally a nautical term referring to things outside of a boat, but it is also frequently used idiomatically to reflect excessive or unreasonable behavior (e.g., to "go overboard"). The combination with "Ego" therefore suggests an overconfident mindset brought on by victory, fitting with the song's role as a battle win jingle.
