** The BTS for ''Music/MileyCyrus vs UsefulNotes/JoanOfArc'' shows a hanging rope prop that most likely was intended for a "Wrecking Ball" reference. They also went over possible lines for Peter and Lloyd's cameo as [[HannahMontana Miley and Lilly]]. Neither of these are in the final cut.

* ''Franchise/StarWars'', ''Franchise/MarvelComics'', and ''Creator/DCComics'' are the only franchises with two characters who battled (Darth Vader and Boba Fett for Star Wars, Deadpool and the Hulk for Marvel, and Batman and Superman for DC). As of "ComicBook/WonderWoman vs Creator/StevieWonder", DC officially beats out both Disney properties ''and'' has its iconic "Big Three" all represented!

* AbsenteeActor: Lloyd has pretty frequently been absent as a rapper, though any time this is the case, he'll still pop up in the background playing a non-participant such as Carl Sagan or John [=McCain=]. Peter, meanwhile, had taken part in every battle without fail all the way up until Cleopatra vs. Marilyn Monroe, where both Lloyd and Peter played cameo roles. (The fact that this is the ''first'' time Peter didn't rap is significant when you consider that this wasn't even the first woman vs. woman battle...)
** Bruce Lee vs. Clint Eastwood is notably the first battle where Lloyd rapped but Peter didn't. Since then, we've also had Adam vs. Eve, Goku vs. Superman and Jack the Ripper vs. Hannibal Lecter.
** Tesla vs. Edison is a weird example in that it's the only battle where Peter is ''visually'' completely absent but still does the vocals for Tesla.
** Michael Jordan VS Muhammad Ali is the first battle ever where neither Peter nor Lloyd appear at ''all'' - not for vocals[[note]]Though Peter still voiced the announcer[[/note]], not for a cameo, nothing.
** Similarly, Creator/EdgarAllanPoe vs Creator/StephenKing, which also pits two returning guest stars (Zach Sherwin and George Watsky) against each other.

** Mike Diva (Bruce Lee's actor in Bruce Lee VS Clint Eastwood) lampshades this by stating that he sucks at Asian accents, so Lloyd and Peter had to coach him. Pete then proceeds to walk by and claim no involvement in said accent coaching.

* There have been four instances of both a character and their creator having both appeared in separate rap battles: HAL 9000 and Stanley Kubrick, William Shakespeare and Romeo & Juliet, Gandalf and J.R.R. Tolkien, and StanLee and TheIncredibleHulk (Stan Lee created Marvel's Thor but the Thor in ERBOH is not explicitly stated to be him (aside from a brief MCU nod) and Deadpool, although owned by Marvel, was not created by Lee). Steven Spielberg was involved in ''Back to the Future'' where Doc Brown originates from, but he was a creation of Robert Zemeckis.
