     Standard Death Battle Recap Format 
The opening of a Death Battle recap begins by quoting the episode's opening. Wizard and Boomstick explain the common ties the combatants of the episode share in a few sentences. Preferably, references to the hosts should not be here, or the subject made more ambiguous.

The following paragraph should follow suit, listing the first combatant's identities and titles as said by the hosts. A second sentence does the same for their opponent.

A third paragraph states what the fighters share, listing what traits and equipment both sides have and will go against each other. The hosts may add additional rules, special considerations, or anything else to the fight. This part goes between stating the fighters' names/titles and before the first character rundown; put all of it here.

Combatant One:

  • A combatant's profile should be three paragraphs, the first of which follows the lore and origin behind the fighter. Correct details or add extra minutiae not mentioned for clarity if needed.

  • The next paragraph should involve a list of the fighter's noteworthy physical traits and equipment.

  • The third and final paragraph of a rundown lists the character's noteworthy accomplishments and any potential weaknesses that may be important, be it to the person or battle. The order in which feats and flaws go is unimportant.

Combatant One: At the end of a character's rundown, a small clip of the figure in question will play, doing or saying something impressive; that statement or action belongs here. Also, if a TV Tropes page exists for the exact source where the clip comes from, link to the material in question using the figure's name.

Combatant Two: Repeat what you did for the first character rundown.

After the rundown of the second character, there may be an ad for the episode. Briefly describe its source and purpose. After that, it's time for a death battle!

The setup to the fight begins in the next paragraph. We appreciate details about pre-clash events.


Describe the fight here and split it into paragraphs if it drags, preferably using lulls to help portion. Have some detail, but using blow-by-blow replay is excessive.


After the fight, there will usually be a short clip showing what happens to the winner and what remains of the loser. However, some battles replace that with an instant replay of the fight's climax. Address this part first before going into the specifics of why Wiz and Boomstick chose the winner as they did.

Boomstick: At the end of each episode, I will probably say something witty or pun-like about the battle's result. Put it here.
Wiz: And I will tell the audience who the winner is.

Put a link here to the next episode recap, with the phrase "Next time on Death Battle.." having the link.
