** It's still not known if the immense success of ''Epic Rap Battles of History'' had some influence in leading to the creation of ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCEUZ4rFiac Origins: Rap Battle - WW1]]''. A historical music video that's had millions of views and is much too similar to be a coincidence despite being created by the British Broadcasting Company.

*** In the first verse, Leonardo (the artist) refers to Donatello as his "man," and Raphael does the same for Michelangelo. So why doesn't Donatello do it for Raphael? Because Leonardo's actor Link Neal and Donatello's actor Rhett McLaughlin are both part of WebVideo/GoodMythicalMorning, and Raphael's actor Anthony Padilla and Michelangelo's actor Ian Hecox are both part of Smosh [[spoiler: or were when the video was released]], but Rhett and Anthony have never formed a duo.
**** Combined with HypocriticalHumor - Michelangelo calls himself a giant even though Ian is only 5'6", while Link and Anthony are both 6'0" and Rhett is 6'7".

*** The same battle combines this trope with HypocriticalHumor - Confucius calls the [[spoiler: other five]] "rookies" despite his actor, MC Jin, being the only one who hasn't previously appeared in an ERB.

** Only one day after the release of ''Donald Trump vs. Ebeneezer Scrooge'', Creator/DonaldTrump tweeted about the video, understandably confused and asking "Whats up with this rap stuff with me and Ebeneezer Scrooge?" ERB wasted no time in acknowledging that Trump had acknowledged ERB.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: It now feels pretty odd that ''John Lennon vs. Bill O'Reilly'' makes no mention of the numerous sexual harassment accusations that destroyed O'Reilly's career.
