Onward! is a jingle.

Description

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.

Remixes and covers

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.

Similar to its final boss theme predecessor, DJ Octavio's remix of Bomb Rush Blush also uses the Onward! motif throughout the track.

Scrapper jingle

Whilst stunning a Scrapper, a jingle is played, consisting of the Onward! theme being played with what appears to be car horns.

Ebb & Flow (Demo)

Main article: Ebb & Flow

Similar to DJ Octavio's usage of the jingle, the demo version of Ebb & Flow contains interpolations of the Onward! theme, hinting at Marina's Octarian origins.

Inkopolis Memorial Mixtape

The same choral Onward! jingle that plays in I am Octavio is heard twice in the Inkopolis Memorial Mixtape. The first time, it plays right after Octo Eight-Step, and the second after the Opening jingle by Wet Floor.
