* SeenItAll: This is the tone that Julius Caesar gives off in his first verse. After Shaka Zulu says that Caesar's walking into a massacre and would [[DecapitationPresentation send his head back to Rome wrapped in his own banner]], Caesar says in the unimpressed manner possible that he'll crush Shaka just like everyone else.



** Probably the weirdest example in the series is "NicePeter vs. EpicLLOYD 2". Of all the battles in the series, it's the one that feels least like a silly comedy video and more like an actual heated argument between two people who are seriously pissed off at each other, with the disses mostly being based on events in the personal lives of the cast which nobody else watching the battle would have had any way of knowing about. Also, Peter and Lloyd sing their last verses ''simultaneously''. They don't team up, they just rap over each other.

** Ebeneezer Scrooge first gets startled awake by Trump, then yelled at by three rappers - the last of whom is Nightmare Fuel to him - until he nearly starts crying before changing his ways. This was bound to happen since the battle is an abridged version (with new characters) of A Christmas Carol.

** Also inverted with Donald Trump; while his real self is still alive, in the rap battle he's outright stated to be dead and his ghost is haunting Scrooge.

* DancePartyEnding: A lot of the battles like to have the characters just dancing at the end. Among the examples are "Bill Gates vs. Steve Jobs", "Rasputin vs. Stalin", and "Donald Trump vs. Ebeneezer Scrooge". From the 2nd season on, almost all of them show the characters dancing in the credits. Their second channel features a few Dance Battles of History to the tunes of their battles.

** Donald Trump, the only rapper so far to appear in two different titles, is effectively portrayed as two different characters in ''Donald Trump vs Ebenezer Scrooge'' and ''Donald Trump vs Hillary Clinton''. This is largely because the 2016 election wildly changed the public's perception of Trump, leading to jokes about his complexion, the size of his hands, and the accusations of racism against him.

** During Donald Trump v. Ebenezer Scrooge, there is a clock on the mantle of the fireplace in Scrooge's background that begins the battle showing the time as midnight, which would follow the original story of Marley's ghost appearing at that time. It speeds up an hour before each of the three ghosts show up: it is one o'clock at the first ghost's appearance, two o'clock at the second ghost, and three o'clock with the last ghost.

** "Donald Trump vs. Ebeneezer Scrooge" brings three different styles. Donald Trump gets one all for himself, then it shifts for Ebenezer and J.P. Morgan. Kanye West's appearance basically counts as a musical GenreShift, which plays out for the rest of the battle.

** During the Donald Trump vs. Ebenezer Scrooge battle, look at Scrooge's background, more precisely at his clock. During his verses it moves forward by a hour each, and the ghosts (JP Morgan, Kanye West and the Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come) appear when it strikes 1, 2, and 3 respectively.
