Tempo is a gameplay element from Mother 3. If you hit the attack button in time with the beat of the battle music, you will combo, dealing out up to 16 hits if you hit it perfectly. Most battle themes have you attack with a quarter note beat, but other more complicated themes require attacking along with the underlying bass.
