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, Ego Overboard and Still Swimmin'.

The solo drum track at the end of Learning Curve has similar drum beats to that of Still Swimmin', but with some minor differences and also uses different drum samples.


A learning curve is a person's progress in gaining experience, Learning Curve might be a play on the fact that a player can get experience from failure.
