Eight-Legged Advance is a song performed by Turquoise October.


Eight-Legged Advance, like many Turquoise October songs, is an electronic song, featuring many chiptune influences, unorthodox production and Octarian-sounding vocals. It features a prominent guitar line. Just before the minute mark the beat slightly switches. The intro is an interpolation of the Onward! jingle heard after beating a mission, which is also sampled in I am Octavio. It is heard throughout various Octo Valley missions, and can also be heard in Squid Beatz.

Inkopolis Memorial Mixtape

In the Inkopolis Memorial Mixtape, the eerie, ghostlike set of notes that plays during Eight-Legged Advance is heard right after Octo Eight-Step plays. After the Onward! jingle from the track, it transitions into The Girl from Inkopolis.


Eight-Legged Advance implies a march of the Octarians, which, as octopuses, have eight legs.
