This page is for the Contra song, for more titles see Waterfall.

Waterfall is the background music played in the waterfall stage. It begins with some very rapid notes playing in contrast to a slow harmony. Then it erupts into a fast-paced tune with pulsing drums in the background. There is a minor slow down, but then the action picks back up again as it loops. The song is composed by Kazuki Muraoka. The title is unofficial.

In the NES port, Waterfall is played in stage 3. It's pretty similar to the arcade game, but features a much creepier looking boss.

This song is the same throughout every region and the PlayChoice-10 release.
