Onward! is a jingle.
Onward! is a very short jingle, lasting roughly five seconds, taking a lot of elements from Turquoise October songs. It is the signature five-note melody of the Octarians playing twice, the second time with a higher pitch. It is heard during the sequence that plays once the player finishes a mission in Hero Mode.

Onward! (Octo Canyon)
A remix of the jingle was composed for Splatoon 2, where unlike the original where no artist was given, the Splatune 2 booklet lists it as a Turquoise October song. Like the original, it plays after successfully completing a mission in Hero Mode.
