** Teddy Roosevelt calls Winston Churchill a "bloated, drunk old man" who needs to "do-si-do on over to a 12-step program". Churchill opens his verse by requesting "a cigar and a large glass of brandy" and admits to being "toasted" while battling.
** Ivan the Terrible threatens to smack Alexander the Great "harder than [he] hit that bottle". Alexander responds by accusing Ivan of having "vodka bars" and demanding Ivan fetch him a drink.

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Most of the battles have the characters doing ridiculous dances and/or poses in the background:
** Dr. Seuss vomits rainbows while on the boat.
** StephenHawking is seen playing ''VideoGame/AngryBirds''.
** Behind the Wright Brothers, you can see biplanes flying, and at one point one crashing into the ground.
** At the end of Romney's first verse, it looks like he's... really going for distance on that kick.
*** Obama with his head down and looking like he'd just been scolded by his mother while [[spoiler: Lincoln moves on to chewing out Romney.]]
** While the Fourth Doctor is rapping, look at the computer screen behind him on the TARDIS control panel. It's ''{{VideoGame/Minecraft}}''! Specifically, it's video footage from the ''Machinima/YogscastMinecraftSeries''.
** In Columbus vs. Captain Kirk, after Kirk says "Have fun canoeing", he can be seen behind Columbus doing a rowing motion.
** One of the ninjas that Bruce Lee beats collapses onto the borderline between Lee's and Eastwood's screens, and the part of him that falls into Eastwood's screen changes into a cowboy. Apparently they have one-size-fits-all {{Mooks}} that dynamically change to fit the scene. The effect is repeated later in the episode, when a desperado, sneaking behind Eastwood, turns into a creeping ninja when he crosses the divide.
** Stalin can be seen looking down at his hand after [[spoiler:Lenin]] points out how it shriveled up.
** Rasputin can be seen dancing in place to the beat during [[spoiler:Gorbachev and Putins']] verses
*** More generally, the non-rappers can be seen in the background with a facial expression of mild surprise, which is funnier than if they were violently reacting to being insulted. During Putin's verse, Gorby can be seen to be making a "is that bacon I smell?" face.
** During Blackbeard's second verse, you can see Blackbeard's pirates stealing from Capone. "Pilfer all your rum and sell it at a profit" indeed. Then during Al Capone's last verse, behind him Edward Kenway is briefly seen making a deal with Capone's gangsters, and then starts assassinating Blackbeard's crew towards the end.
** In Rick Grimes vs. Walter White, Walter distracts a zombie with a bag of meth at the beginning of his second verse. At the very end, the zombie walks behind him tweaking out.
** 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.
** At a point during [[spoiler:Michael Bay's]] verse, you can see him throwing his director's chair. Also, when he says "Got a gift from above and the eyes of an eagle", an eagle is seen flying behind him, which promptly explodes.
** While Lewis and Clark are accusing Film/BillAndTed of being nothing without their HyperCompetentSidekick Rufus, Sacagawea is seen rowing the canoe they are in, and later fighting off a bear with her bare hands, saving [[{{Hypocrite}} their oblivious asses]].
** Sun Tzu [[Literature/TheArtOfWar spying on his opponents]].
** Julius Caesar miming a slam dunk.
** In Babe Ruth vs Lance Armstrong, after Babe hits a home run, the pitcher throws a tantrum.
*** Also worth noting is that the pitcher seems to be another Ruth. Ruth pitched for the Red Sox before he was traded to the Yankees.
** When J. R. R. Tolkien mentions that George R. R. Martin's works rank below ''Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey'', Tolkien can be seen in the back playing with Christian Grey's tie as if it is a whip.
*** The computer on George R. R. Martin's second verse is playing VideoGame/{{Zork}}.
*** Jon Snow, stabbed by Martin during his first verse, is seen coming back from the dead later on.
** When [=RoboCop=] is about to shoot the Terminator, part of the Terminator's Search Mode scan includes a {{CallBack} to Bruce Lee vs. Clint Eastwood:
--->Firepower: Cool in the 80's, maybe
** In [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Ash Ketchum]] vs. UsefulNotes/CharlesDarwin, Jessie and James try to sneak up on Ash while he's rapping, only for them to get shocked by Pikachu before they even have a chance to strike.

* ShownTheirWork: The series ''revolves'' around the injokes made with this.
** ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'''s Master Chief was correctly identified as a Petty Officer[[note]]Full title; "Master Chief Special Warfare Operator of the Navy John-117"[[/note]] by his foe Leonidas, which most players are unaware of.
** Freddie Mercury vs. Frank Sinatra referenced Frank's mob ties, the fact that he didn't get in the military during UsefulNotes/WW2, and the fact that his most famous song "My Way" was actually written by someone else.
** Skrillex claims that Mozart is "into powdered wigs and poop". Sounds out of place, doesn't it? [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozart_and_scatology It's not.]]
** Most people know very little about Stalin's family, especially the fact that he left one of his sons to die in a German prison instead of trading him for a German Field Marshall. Likewise for his shriveled right hand, which he was highly self-conscious about throughout his life.
** And as for the Epic Dance Battle in Rasputin v. Stalin, Stalin is having difficulty with ThatRussianSquatDance. That's because he's actually Georgian, not Russian.
** When [[Series/DoctorWho The Doctor]] [[spoiler:is about to die]] he cites lines from The End of Time, and the voices echo [[Creator/PeterDavison Fifth Doctor]]'s.
** They took pains to be as accurate as possible with Stephen Hawking's pose in Einstein vs. Hawking in order to avoid offensive portrayals of the disabled.
** Peter took it upon himself to watch every single episode of ''Breaking Bad'' and read up on ''Dragon Ball'' after the first half of Season 3 ended in order to prepare lyrics for the episodes featuring characters from the franchises in question - no small feat.
** Superman makes several references to the fact that many ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' characters happen to be named after vegetables, a result of the aforementioned work Peter did.
** A sly one was UsefulNotes/GeorgeWashington bragging about having "the best moves at the ball." He was indeed [[http://bibliolore.org/2012/02/22/george-washington-dancer/ an excellent dancer]].
** Oprah says "Try to beef with me? I'll make the whole market crash!" In the 1990s, Oprah had a guest on her show to talk about mad cow disease and its relationship to questionable practices in the beef ranching industry, at one point declaring she'd never eat another hamburger again. So many people stopped buying beef as a result of the episode that cattle farmers sued Oprah for defamation. She won.
** All of the references to the [[spoiler:five]] directors in Spielberg vs Hitchcock, from Spielberg getting mad at Hitchcock, his idol, for not letting him visit (Spielberg grew up watching Hitchcock, was inspired to be a filmmaker from his works, and tried to meet the man, but was refused), to Hitchcock being rejected from fighting in World War I[[spoiler:, to Kubrick's desire for utter cinematic perfection resulting in him forcing Jack Nicholson to do a scene 127 times in order to get it absolutely perfect, to Tarantino's TrunkShot, to how much Michael Bay loves to film shots of helicopters at sunset]].
** "Shaka Zulu vs Julius Ceasar" shows us the former's signature "Chest and horns" strategy, facing off against the Roman Wedge, which might break through the enemy lines, leaving the "horns" isolated. It's actually a workable counter...[[LeeroyJenkins as long as you don't run into the "loins" held in reserve for exactly that sort of tactic]].
** During "Bruce Banner vs Bruce Jenner," transgender rapper No Shame was brought in to do Jenner's post-transition verse, rather than having Peter dress up in drag.

* SomethingCompletelyDifferent:
** "Kim Jong-Il vs. Hulk Hogan and Macho Man Randy Savage" has Kim Jong-Il killing Hogan at the end of his second verse, prompting Macho Man to finish the battle for him.
** Stephen Hawking's verses are played using AutoTune vocals instead of a synthesized voice, because they couldn't get the synth to use a proper rhythm. He was the only rapper to use AutoTune until Oprah vs Ellen.
** "Ben Franklin vs. Billy Mays" has Billy Mays die of a heart attack before he can start his second verse. [[spoiler:Vince Offer then decides to TakeUpHisSword and finish the battle.]]
** Shakespeare's second verse. Turns out he can [[MotorMouth rap]] ''[[MotorMouth really]]'' [[MotorMouth fast]]. This was to be expected, as he was played by George Watsky, one of the fastest rappers on [=YouTube=]. Also in the same battle, Dr. Seuss brings in his characters to rap for him rather than rapping himself.
** "Hitler vs. Vader 2" has each rapper getting only one verse before Hitler is dropped into the Rancor pit.
** "Jobs vs. Gates": instead of sticking to the formulaic two verses per rapper (2 vs 1 battles notwithstanding), Jobs and Gates end up switching back and forth every line for a while:
--> '''Jobs''': Ooh, everybody knows Windows bit off Apple.
--> '''Gates''': I tripled the profits on a PC.
--> '''Jobs''': All the people with the power to create use an Apple!
--> '''Gates''': And people with jobs use PC.
--> '''Jobs''': You know, I bet they made [[MediumAwareness this beat]] on an Apple!
--> '''Gates''': Nope, [=FruityLoops=], PC.
--> '''Jobs''': You will never ever catch a virus on an Apple!
--> '''Gates''': Well, you can still afford a doctor if you bought a PC.
*** Then, [[spoiler: Jobs [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence ascends]], Gates undergoes SanitySlippage, and [[Film/TwoThousandAndOneASpaceOdyssey HAL 9000]] appears and finishes the battle with a verse of his own.]]
** "Marilyn Monroe vs. Cleopatra" was 3 to 2 verses respectively.
** "Mitt Romney vs. Barack Obama" had one big verse for each and smaller verses as the song goes on, similar to the above. [[spoiler: Then Abraham Lincoln shows up to thrash them both.]]
** "Adam vs. Eve". Instead of raps relating to the story of Adam and Eve (though there are some aspects of that), it's mostly just a generic married couple bickering set to music. This one was expected since some of the comment suggestions that went with it were "Man vs. Woman".
** "Martin Luther King vs. Gandhi" each get an extra verse added to the standard rap, in which King offers Gandhi forgiveness and Gandhi rejects it.
** "Stalin vs. Rasputin" had [[spoiler:5 rappers each getting one verse.]]
** "Hitler vs. Vader 3", like the second, has each rapper getting one standard verse, then [[spoiler:Vader brings in Boba Fett to help him, who is shot by Hitler after 8 seconds; Hitler then has a VillainousBreakdown and responds with nonsensical insults that don't rhyme at all before Vader cuts him in half.]]
** "Michael Jordan vs. Muhammad Ali" gave both rappers three verses instead of the usual two.
** Like "Stalin vs. Rasputin", "Donald Trump vs. Ebeneezer Scrooge" also features [[spoiler:5 rappers: Donald, Ebeneezer, J.P. Morgan (The Ghost of Rich Dudes Past), Music/KanyeWest (The Ghost of What's Right Now), and TheGrimReaper. However, Ebeneezer gets a whole verse in response to each of the other four. The episode was also different in that the rap itself tells a progressing story; even in the Vader vs Hitler trilogy, the story only happened before and after the battles. Also, only Trump gets the standard BoastfulRap, while the others' raps are just to fill their part in the story.]]
** "Isaac Newton vs. Bill Nye" has [[spoiler:Neil DeGrasse Tyson showing up at the end to help Nye out with a verse of his own after it becomes obvious that Nye's a bit outclassed]].
** The Season 3 finale was the largest rap battle up to that point, a full ''four on four'' battle: ''Creator/{{Leonardo|DaVinci}}, Creator/{{Michelangelo|Buonarroti}}, Creator/{{Raphael|Sanzio}}, and Donatello vs. [[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Leonardo, Michaelangelo, Raphael, and Donatello]]''. Cowabunga.
** "Franchise/{{Ghostbusters}} vs Series/MythBusters" tops even the Season 3 finale, starting with Peter, Egon, Ray, and Winston against Adam and Jamie, then the [=MythBusters=] bring in the Build Team, and at the end [[spoiler:Stay Puft]] shows up for a total of ''ten'' rappers, or eleven if Janine Melnitz' cameo line counts.
** "Zeus vs. Thor" is done through Lego stop-motion rather than live action. It's also the first time the backgrounds are built physically ([[BuiltWithLego in Lego!]]) instead of a total green screen.
** "Jack the Ripper vs Hannibal Lecter" (both of them serial killers) is LEGITIMATELY creepier than anything they've ever done before, to the point of being an actual horror video. That's saying something considering they've covered two horror writers, five Russian leaders[[note]]well, four Russian leaders and a Russian mad wizard who controlled the Tzar, to be precise[[/note]], ''Series/TheWalkingDead'' and Adolf Hitler.
** Similar to the Russian Leaders battle, season 4 has "Creator/StevenSpielberg vs Creator/AlfredHitchcock", who each get one verse, then [[spoiler:Creator/QuentinTarantino, Creator/StanleyKubrick, and Creator/MichaelBay show up.]]
** Subverted in "Creator/HarryHoudini vs. Creator/DavidCopperfield". When Houdini uses the word "angle" [[Series/CrissAngelMindfreak Criss Angel]] shows up as if he's about to take the next verse... but is shut down by Houdini and leaves.
** "Eastern vs. Western Philosophers" starts with a standard battle, with each getting two verses, until [[spoiler:Sun Tzu uses mind games to manipulate the Western team into arguing amongst themselves. This tactic then backfires when he ends up tearing apart his own team as well.]]
** "Stan Lee vs. Jim Henson" has Stan Lee [[spoiler:realize he's gone too far in the middle of his second verse and apologize, leading them to both put their differences aside and make up. Then Walt Disney shows up and tells them to get back to work.]]
** "Frederick Douglass vs. Thomas Jefferson" has Jefferson spending his second verse acknowledging and explaining his own wrongdoings, the first character in the series to do so to such a degree.
** "Film/JamesBond vs Film/AustinPowers" has the first physical set that matches the authenticity of the costumes and makeup, a {{homage}} to the music video for "BBC" by Ming Tea as well as the first movie's EyeCatch. [[spoiler:It's also the first battle where a third-party rapper (Sean Connery's Bond) not only shows up but actually has mutual back-and-forth exchange of insults with the other two, as opposed to just finishing the battle with his first verse.]]
** "Ivan the Terrible vs. Alexander the Great" has [[spoiler:four rappers (Ivan the Terrible, Alexander the Great, Frederick the Great, and Catherine the Great), with Catherine being the only one to get more than one verse, not counting the dialogues in which Ivan attempts to kill the others.]]
** "Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton" has each rapper only getting one verse, [[spoiler:and Trump being interrupted mid-sentence by Abraham Lincoln, who finishes the battle with a verse of his own.]]
** Probably the weirdest example in the series is "Nice Peter 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.

** "Film/JamesBond vs Film/AustinPowers" has the first physical set that matches the authenticity of the costumes and makeup, a {{homage}} to the music video for "BBC" by Ming Tea as well as the first movie's EyeCatch. [[spoiler:It's also the first battle where a third-party rapper (Sean Connery's Bond) not only shows up but actually has mutual back-and-forth exchange of insults with the other two, as opposed to just finishing the battle with his first verse.]]
** "Ivan the Terrible vs. Alexander the Great" has [[spoiler:four rappers (Ivan the Terrible, Alexander the Great, Frederick the Great, and Catherine the Great), with Catherine being the only one to get more than one verse, not counting the dialogues in which Ivan attempts to kill the others.]]
** "Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton" has each rapper only getting one verse, [[spoiler:and Trump being interrupted mid-sentence by Abraham Lincoln, who finishes the battle with a verse of his own.]]
** Probably the weirdest example in the series is "Nice Peter 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.
