ACADECA (Academic Decathlon) is the fourth of six songs featured in My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games. In this montage sequence, the Canterlot High School Wondercolts and the Crystal Prep Academy Shadowbolts mock each other and try to bring down each other's spirits.

The song title was first seen on Kaylee Johnston's website. It serves as the eighth track on the soundtrack album My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, under the title Acadeca. The soundtrack version has slightly different lyrics during Sunset's bridge.

Production

On the My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games DVD/Blu-ray audio commentary, Daniel Ingram mentions that this song was originally written as a rap, but was considered "really cheesy", and was turned into a song. He also notes that, because both two groups were sung by the same choir, to differentiate between them, the choir was told to sound "really obnoxious" for the Shadowbolts and sound "really nice" for the Wondercolts.

Lyrics

Sunset and Twilight's silhouettes face off EG3
[Sunset Shimmer and Wondercolts]
Ho! We're gonna take you down
Ho! We're gonna take you down!
Take you down! (Ho! We're gonna take you down!)
Take you down! (Down, down, down)
[Sour Sweet and Shadowbolts]
(Oh oh!) We're here to take you out
(Aw aw!) We're here to take you out (Aw aw!)
Take you out! (We're here to take you out!)
Take you out!
[Wondercolts]
We're not about to let you win, so get out of our way
Think you got us beat, but we're here to stay
United strong, yeah, we'll take you down
You're not so tough, now you're in our town
All of the times we lost before
Not about to give up, we're only bringin' it more
We can smell your fear, we can see your sweat
Hope you didn't spend money 'cause you're losin' this bet!
You've got nothin' on us
Na, na, na-na-na, na
Let's go, Wondercolts!
You've got nothin' on us
Na, na, na-na-na, na
Let's go, Wondercolts!
[Shadowbolts]
Talk a little too much for a school that never wins
Maybe you should just stop 'fore you even begin
We are Crystal Prep High and we have a reputation
Every little moment is about our education
Put your ear to the ground
Listen to that sound
You're a house of cards
And it's about to fall down (fall down)
About to fall down (fall down), hit the ground
You've got nothin' on us
Na, na, na-na-na, na
Let's go, Shadowbolts!
You've got nothin' on us
Na, na, na-na-na, na
Let's go, Shadowbolts!
[Wondercolts]
Pressure's on, now we're gonna beat you
Step aside, it's time that we defeat you
Crystal Prep yourself 'cause you're about to go
Down, down, down, down
[Shadowbolts]
Pressure's on, you know we're gonna take you
Just give up before we have to break you
Canter-not-a-lot, you're about to go
Down, down, down, down
[Wondercolts]
Take it up to the top
'Cause we know we can win
[Shadowbolts]
Maybe you should just stop
'Cause we've seen you give in
[Wondercolts]
We believe in ourselves
And we've got what it takes
[All]
And we're not gonna stop
[Sci-Twi]
I can't wait 'til this is all over
There's so much more that's going on
[Sunset Shimmer]
And before these games are over
I'll find out just what she's done
[All]
Can she do it? Will she make it?
Who will win it? Who will take it?
Can she do it? Who will take it?
Did she win it? Did she make it?
Who's the winner? Who's the reject?
How did she answer?
Principal Cinch: Incorrect!
