YMMV / Epic Pixel Battle

Go To

  • Bizarro Episode: The "Kirby VS Jigglypuff" remaster uses a much more static style of editing than the other episodes. Instead of having characters slide around from place to place, the whole song takes places in a single scene, with the camera panning from one character to the other.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • In "Samus VS Mega Man", Mega Man mentions how fans just want to see Ridley in Super Smash Bros.. Come Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, he's finally a playable character.

    • In "Rayman VS Crash Bandicoot", Rayman taunts Crash for getting his big return canceled by Activision. A few years later, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy was released.
    • Mettaton in "Mettaton VS Bayonetta" has a line in which he mentions that Bayonetta "switched to Nintendo". Later that year, it was confirmed that Bayonetta 3 would be released on the Nintendo Switch, along with ports of the two previous games.
    • In the Dans Ton Clash video about the "Mario VS Mickey" remaster, the "professor" character states that he'll see the viewers again to discuss the second EPB remaster, before realizing that there isn't a second one. "Kirby VS Jigglypuff" later received a remaster in Season 3, though amusingly enough there was no DTC video for it.
  • Memetic Mutation: "Yandere-chan VS Sans" has been suggested so often by viewers that it became sort of a running joke, even among the creators themselves.

  • Older Than They Think: This is actually the second "rap battle" series created by 123Lunatic; he had previously made one called Epic Pokémon Battle, which featured various characters from his Let's Play of Pokémon FireRed.
  • Unexpected Character:
    • Dora the Explorer was one character whose appearance took nearly everyone by surprise, especially against a serious character like Lara Croft, considering that the cartoon she comes from is aimed at preschoolers.
    • "The Visitor From the Future VS The Visitors" was a surprising choice of characters in its own right, mostly due to them being the first characters in the series to come from live-action works, and the former in particular being the first to be from a web video series.
    • It's safe to assume that few people expected the EPB crew itself to appear in "Yandere-Chan VS Monika", let alone being Monika's actual opponent.
