The UNSC Marine Cadence was a military cadence used by the UNSC Marine Corps. It was also used by a group of Colonial Militia trainees on Harvest before the First Battle of Harvest.[1]


Helljumper, Helljumper, where you been?

Feet first into hell and back again!
When I die please bury me deep!
Place an MA5 down by my feet!
Don't cry for me, don't shed no tear!
Just pack my box with PT gear!
Cuz one early morning 'bout zero-five!
The ground will rumble, there'll be lightning in the sky!
Don't you worry, don't come undone
It's just my ghost on a PT run! [2]



  • The first four lines of the Cadence are heard in the background of the Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn teaser.
  • The 1st, and 3rd-10th lines were sung in Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, when the Cadets of Hastati Squad were marching in Corbulo Academy of Military Science.
