Battle Victory is a song.

Description

Battle Victory consists of two parts: the short victory jingle that plays at the beginning as the results are declared, and the main part of the song that loops over the results screen. If the player loses the match, Battle Defeat plays instead. It is an upbeat theme, meant to convey the joy felt after the winning of a match, featuring Inkling chants and claps. It can also be heard in Squid Beatz, and it is included in Splatune; however, the jingle is absent in the former and split into a separate track in the latter.

Remixes and covers

Turf Master

A cover by Wet Floor replaces the original in Splatoon 2 as the new victory theme. Unlike Battle Victory, it can also be heard in Squid Beatz 2, with a maximum score of 45 and 82 in Normal and Hard modes, respectively, although it does not include the victory jingle. It was also included in Splatune 2 and the Inkoming! EP released by Tower Records.

Fest Zest

Fest Zest is another cover of the victory theme by Off the Hook. Interestingly, the instrumentation is based on the original theme, rather than Turf Master, and features Pearl rapping over the beat. Despite being credited as an Off the Hook song, Marina does not appear to play a role in this version vocal-wise. It replaced Turf Master in Splatfests, playing after the standard victory jingle. It is also heard on the Player Settings screen and in Squid Beatz 2, with a maximum score of 46 and 64 in Normal and Hard modes, respectively, and is included in Splatune 2.

Victory jingle (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate plays a remix of Battle Victory as Inkling's victory theme. It is a jazz-inspired remix, using brass instruments.

Other versions

Victory! - Jingle

Unlike the original, this version just plays the opening jingle, leaving the looping victory theme as a separate track in every instance, not just in Splatune. It is near-identical to the original but includes slight drum track differences.

Turf Master (Splatoon 2 Global Testfire)

An alternate version of Turf Master was heard during the Splatoon 2 Global Testfire. Unlike the final version, it does not utilize live instruments and it is missing the guitar lick right before the song loops.

Trivia

  • When playing as Inkling Boy in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, their vehicle's horn samples the Victory jingle.
  • In WarioWare: Get It Together!, an arrangement of the jingle is played when the winning team in the Splatoon 2 microgame is guessed correctly and it speeds up each time during a run.

Etymology

While Battle Victory is a self-explanatory title, Turf Master implies the player winning a Turf War (despite its usage in every game mode), while Fest Zest references the song's usage in Splatfests. "Zest" can mean enthusiasm or happiness,[1] referencing the happiness felt when winning, and rhymes with "fest".
