Added DiffLines:

** At one point in ''Thanos vs. Darkseid'', Darkseid throws a helicopter with Thanos' name at his opponent. While it's meant to be a reference to [[https://ozbot.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341c4e3753ef0120a75c0d07970b-600wi this moment]] in the comics, it doesn't really make any sense in the context of the fight itself.


** [[spoiler:Roronoa Zoro, Raiden (Metal Gear), Zero, Akuma, and Vegeta]], all of whom have won a Death Battle, a DBX, and a One Minute Melee each -- even more impressive is that nearly all of them [[spoiler:(sans Zero)]] still remain undefeated as of today.[[note]]Though only [[spoiler:Akuma]] won both a Death Battle and One Minute Melee before the latter left [=ScrewAttack=].[[/note]] Of these characters, [[spoiler:Akuma is notable for going undefeated in '''5 different fights''' (one ''Death Battle'', one ''DBX'', and three ''One Minute Melee''s[[note]]two of which happened before the show left [=ScrewAttack=][[/note]].]]
** By extension, [[spoiler:Doomsday, Solid Snake, Kirby, Spawn, Miles "Tails" Prower, Monkey D. Luffy, Trunks, Sora, Toph Beifong, Black Panther, Yang Xiao Long, Noctis]], and ([[LethalJokeCharacter shockingly enough]]) [[spoiler:Hercule Satan]] -- and if we're not counting losses or ties, [[spoiler:Batman, Sonic, Mega Man, Guts, Meta Knight, Master Chief, Samus Aran[[note]]Technically, at least. While Mega Man was deemed the victor of his One Minute Melee fight against her, they didn't actually fight each other -- rather, he defeated [[VideoGame/MetroidFusion SA-X]] masquerading as her, and both fighters ended up teaming up to kill SA-X together)[[/note]], Dante, Thor, Jotaro Kujo, Ryu (Street Fighter), Spider-Man, Link, Scorpion, Sasuke, Mario, Terry Bogard, King Dedede and Captain Falcon]] -- are all close to joining them as well, with each combatant needing one more win to have that same triple-crown status.


* {{Mondegreen}}: Some soundtracks with lyrics tend to be prone to this. The worst offender is probably Emerald Heroes, which had multiple odd interpretations before the lyrics were released, from “I’m schizophrenic on my emerald fire” to “A schizophrenic with my emerald crown” and the like.

Added DiffLines:

** In [[Recap/DeathBattleS02E21IronManVsLexLuthor Iron Man vs. Lex Luthor]], Boomstick misinterprets one of Wiz's statements and [[MistakenForPedophile briefly thinks Luthor is a child molester]]. Creator/KevinSpacey, who [[Film/SupermanReturns once played Luthor]], would later be accused of sexually assaulting multiple underage boys.


** In Raven vs Twilight Sparkle, [[spoiler: Twilight manages to turn Raven into a flower pot and escape from Raven's soul self. At this point, it looks like it might be another Yoshi vs Riptor scenario. Then, right as she's about to smash the flowerpot, Raven's soul self slams into her at mach 36, leaving an ImpactSilhouette. Game over.]]

Added DiffLines:

** The climax of ''Johnny Cage vs. Captain Falcon'' has [[spoiler:Cage land a wicked high-speed combo on Falcon courtesy of the boost pads on the racetrack, before a clearly badly injured Falcon calls in the [[CoolCar Blue Falcon]] and rams the actor at speeds likely greater than ''1500 KM/H''[[note]]994 MPH, and well over Mach 1[[/note]]. Johnny manages to not only survive the impact, but get a few good punches in on the windshield... only for Captain Falcon to activate Boost Fire, horrifically shredding Johnny Cage with the friction against the race track and the centrifugal force of the Boost Fire's spin, before [[LudicrousGibs blasting him to giblets]] with a Falcon Punch in a homage to the famous [[Anime/FZeroLegendOfFalcon Falcon Punch that killed Black Shadow in the anime]].]]

** Even as controversial as the franchise is to Death Battle fans,[[spoiler:out of the top 5 most used franchise in Death Battle, DC Universe have the best win-loss ratio out of all of them with an impressive 68% of winning, Nintendo being close behind with a 64%[[note]] These percentages were based off wins-loss from fights against other franchise like Marvel vs DC, and not against themselves like the Mario Series vs Kirby Series [[/note]]]].

** Having a character/character from a series you like end up winning, ''especially'' after a years-long losing streak, can be very satisfying.

** Having a character/character from a series you like end up winning, ''especially'' after a years-long losing streak, streak (most notably [[spoiler:Ryu's victory over Jin]] for Street Fighter fans), can be very satisfying.


** The final blows of ''Aquaman vs. Namor'' are preceded by a quick conversation which is cool in concept (Namor requesting to test his strength against Aquaman, to which Aquaman agrees to), but marred by an awkwardly long {{Beat}}.

* InternetBackdraft: For a series dedicated to being a fun "WhatIf" take on comparing the strengths and weaknesses of two characters, many of the outcomes of the battles are SeriousBusiness on the internet. While many complaints are [[JustifiedTrope founded in terms of doing research that the team behind the show missed]] ([[ChekhovsSkill subtle]] or [[CriticalResearchFailure obvious]]), other complaints are '''[[InsaneTrollLogic not]]''', and tend to [[FandomRivalry revolve around people liking Contestant X more than Contestant Y regardless of each character's actual abilities]]. Season 3 and a few... [[Administrivia/RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment DBX episodes aren't making anything better]].
** The Justin Bieber vs Rebecca Black fight caused this by being made just to make fun of two real life people, made worse by the ending, where Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers end up being killed in the crossfire just for petty cruelty. For what it's worth, Ben has admitted to considering the episode an OldShame for that exact reason.
