* Lucy spends most of the fight as an ImplacableWoman, as her Diclonius powers keep Carnage at bay to the point where she barely has to ''move''. Even then, it takes Carnage almost a full minute to land as much as a single good hit on her, and while he's able to draw blood with a FlechetteStorm attack, it's the only time he manages to get past Lucy's Vectors and hit her directly. While almost every CurbstompBattle in Season 5 [[CurbstompCushion has the eventual loser put up a good fight in the fight animation]], Lucy's dominance in this matchup is made perfectly clear.
** Carnage's never quit attitude is honorable though. As well as his quiet acceptance of his defeat, simply gving an annoyed "I hate you".

* Meta: the reason why Sonic won in the previous battle was because Wiz and Boomstick determined that Sonic had the speed advantage. When redoing the analysis for this video, they determined that while Sonic still held the advantage in travel speed, Mario was actually ''on par'' with Sonic in terms of reaction speed. That's right-- the portly plumber can [[SuperReflexes react fast enough]] to catch the self-proclaimed "Fastest Thing Alive".
** Also in a Meta sense, Mario's newfound reaction time and greater arsenal came from games released after their first fight. So in a way, Mario TookALevelInBadass and became the more likely victor.

* One for Carnage. After his creepy line "''It's raining, your bleeding, Carnage is STARVING!''", he than has all those lon claws he used to find the missing woman reach out. It doesn't work in the end, but damn if it doesn't look cool. He even manages to grab onto two of her invisable tenticles, saying "''I'm gonna paint you red!''"

* The battle does Thanos and Darkseid justice, with them going from fighting on the planet attacking with skyscrapers to going to space and attacking with '''planets'''.

* Another Meta example. Thanos vs Darkseid [[https://twitter.com/SeanHinz/status/1121781470920491008?s=19 will be part]] of pre-shows for ''Film/AvengersEndgame'' all over the US. This is a HUGE accomplishment for everyone involved in creating the episode, to be on the big screen before the GrandFinale of the MCU.

* After four and a half seasons of being offscreen, Wiz and Boomstick finally being shown onscreen can be considered this to a long time, true fan.

* A surprising match-up, but one that was not unwelcome, the psychopathic [[ComicBook/{{Carnage}} spawn]] of ''ComicBook/{{Venom}}'' against the equally psychopathic [[Manga/ElfenLied Queen Diclonius]], in one of the most brutal fights in ''Death Battle'' history.

* One for Raven: the ponies that have shown up on the show so far have proven to be [[LethalJokeCharacter more than capable fighters]], capable of breaking reality/logic (Rainbow Dash's Sonic Rainboom, for example, or Pinkie Pie's... [[CrazyAwesome actually, just Pinkie Pie]]). Raven went up against the one most likely to actually come out guns blazing ''and won'', thus making her the first combatant to win against a pony.
* Raven winning against Twilight means she succeeded in accomplishing something not even [[HumongousMecha Starscream]], [[BreakingTheFourthWall Deadpool]] or even [[AuthorPowers Wiz and Boomstick]] were able to do, and against one of the strongest of the Mane 6 to boot.

* In case the viewer was thinking that re-purposing [[WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} the Haven Vault]] was just for show, both Evil Ryu and Devil Jin take their fight to the top of a falling stalactite ([[Recap/RWBYV5E13Downfall in an intentional reference to the Raven vs. Cinder fight during "Downfall"]]) in a climactic, no-holds-barred showdown that ends with Ryu bicycle-kicking Jin through a large falling boulder.

* Despite being massively-outclassed in terms of strength, self-control and durability, Jin holds his own to a far more impressive degree than usual, essentially controlling the flow of the battle from the start of the fight until right before the killing blow.
