Top Ten Epic Rap Battles of History
The Top Ten
Beat is so catchy!
I really love the beat to this one.
I'm sorry, but Hal 9000 rapping is just to awesome

Worst person of the real world vs the worst person of fiction
Probably the two best characters in the whole series battling against each other with funny lyrics, good acting, and an actual winner, as Darth Vader froze Hitler. - booklover1
Peter and Lloyd are the kings of epic rap battles I wish they could share their ideas with me I love the Epic Rap Battles of History channelV 31 Comments
I nearly know all the words to this rap battle. Every time I talk to my mate and my sister about epic rap battles of history they sit there singing
"There are 10, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000 particles in the universe that we can observe, yo mama took the ugly ones and put them into 1 NERD! "
I'm as dope as two rappers so you better be scared because Albert E = MC Squared. - B1ueNew
"There are ten million million million million million million million particles in the universe that we can observe,
You're mama took the ugly ones and put them into one nerd. "

If your name end with IN, time to get OUT!
IS THIS A FINALE OR WHAT?!
First off, the costumes. Pretty darn accurate, if you ask me.
Next, the lines and flow. JUST YES! Don't believe me? One word: Gorbachev.
Now, the beats. Great, greater and greatest.
And of course... Pewdiepie as Baryshnikov. All of my yes.
This, without a doubt, put the EPIC in Epic Rap Battles Of History.
Also, Gorbachev won. Putin was close, but Gorbachev just took the victory first.
Even though I don't know all of the people that star in the rap battle, I really enjoyed it! The costumes were amazing (I'm looking at you, Stalin), the raps were hilarious ("If your name ends with in, time to get out! ") and (You two need yoga... You need a shower! "), and it was overall a great ending to a great season. I especially enjoyed them all dancing at the end!
This must be the best one of them all, most power behind the words, clever lyrics and interesting personas of history. I think nicepeter did a great job of portraying the spirit I imagine Lenin had during the revolution, the conviction is just awesome. Regarding the lyrics especially the birth of Marx and birthmarks part is quite clever. I think Putin could have been done a bit more clever though.V 35 Comments
Michael Bay won
Got a gift from above and eyes of an eagle
When it comes to blowing up no director is my equal
Being one of the biggest movie fans I know, I was entertained all the way through. The surprise of Tarantino, Kubrick and Michael Bay were priceless and I couldn't ask for more from ERB. By far my favorite battle and that's saying something considering every Epic Rap Anatolia are all amazing.
Superb use of a director's movies as disses. And 5 rappers!
Come on. Longest Video Ever so far for a reason. The rhymes are so good, they didn't want to stop.V 11 Comments
Sometimes both sides on't sound very good, sometimes there's one who's bad and one who's good, but very rarely are both sides good enough for it to be hard to decide who one. There are a lot of battles like this where there's one character who we're clearly supposed to be rooting for, such as Amadeus, because he is held in a higher regard and rooting for his parody character will make you sound more intelligent. On this one however you have to give credit to both sides and even if you picked one you can't say the other was bad.
Mozart won. It was a good rap battle, and I like the feature of autotune and dubstep on Skrillex's side. Made him stand out more than he usually does.
Not only are the rhymes good, but the beat deserves much more credit, particularly the instrumental one when Mozart starts rapping (there's a sentence you wouldn't understand out of context! ) - keycha1n
All of these videos are super funny, but this one made me laugh out loud. Mozart did win with " No one knows what you are but a sad little troll who knows how to press a space bar."V 15 Comments
This is the best, hands down. - Kubbelstone
Clever how all of the rappers start arguing with each other. Has some of the greatest ERB punchlines. Especially in the end.
Philosphers arguing? common
Just for the line: "Let me be frank. Don't start beef with the Frank who hangs with B. Franks giving ladies beef franks!V 9 Comments
This is one of my favorites. I say Hannibal Lecter won. Jack the Ripper was pretty good too though. But that's just my opinion. Hannibal Lecter definitely had some badass lines!
The beat suited the rap battle perfectly!
Lecter's lines were so good! "Jack, you're a classic megalomaniac, you didn't mention me once in your entire battle rap! " "Barney take me back to solitary confinement, because this dirty little lamb has just been silenced"
This may not be the best overall, but it's the best of Season 4 so far and is in my personal top ten. Great match-up, with Hannibal dishing out some of the cleverest insults of the entire series and the beat itself is bad-ass.V 12 Comments
ERB + Watsky = awesome!
This one is easily the best.
I watched it a month ago and I still haven't decided who won. Poe was killing him with fast rapping, but King was hitting him hard with his rhymes. My jaw literally dropped at how awesome this was.
Easily the best battle in regards to lyrics and skill, in my opinion.
The ones below this one will always have less, never more.V 6 Comments
"You got the momma jeans, and a mister fantastic face - so rich and white it's like I'm runnin' against a cheesecake"
SAVAGE. SO SAVAGE. - keycha1n
Although I didn't vote for this, Obama definitely has the best one-liner in the history of the show
Republicans need a puppet fit it, got your hand so far up rear, they call you mitt
I like the first lady jokeV 26 Comments
Even though it's a finale that's dauntingly short, the artists portion of this battle is one of my favorites ever.
It's beat is extremely catchy and the artist portion of the battle is great.
First one I ever saw so its gotta be my favourite
I wish this could be longer! I LOVE TMNT and the Artist (although I do think that the Artists pulled off a win there).V 11 Comments
How does this not have voters? Watsky is a dude...
The entire concept is just hilarious, but then the execution was so cleverly done it's easily among the best of these if not the very best.
Thing 1 and Thing 2 killed it! "Oh! No! We'll smash your globe! Yo, you may have wrote the script, but now we're runnin the show! You can take your filthy words and send them back home to your momma. Break our foot off in your ass with our feetie pyjamas! " Gets me every time lol
Hands down the best beat/ melody of any of the rap battles! Watsky's fast rapping definitely solidifies this as the best one.V 12 Comments
Ooh whats that a missile backpack I guess you'll be right if a bird attacks
Yes. - DLG
Easily one of their best works
Although the most recent, the beat is one of the most well done of the entire series. The burns and disses were straight fire, and I can't believe that this is number 47. Loved it!V 16 Comments
How about MICHAEL Jackson's name be spelt correctly? It ain't rocket science to spell the name Michael correctly!
I'm on #Team Michael Jackson! He's AWESOME!
Its good but I only kinda like it
It's definitely a good one, but Elvis Presley won, everyone thinks Michael Jackson won because they don't get the jokes that Elvis made. "Your daddy beat gold records outta ya like alchemy." That won it for me. - BlazenSpiritV 11 Comments
The only one that sticks in my head
This one should be number 1 on this list the wright brothers checked the Mario brothers saying we stay up all night playing donkey kong
Like Pow how you like my now like flames out of mouth like are names were bowser
This is my favorite because Rhett and Link guest starred in it.V 10 Comments
This was the best one by far! Even if it is low on the list it is my opinion!
Raywilliamjohnson as Goku just made this battle even better. I think that in the end Goku would have won as nobody knows what his weakness is whereas Superman has cryptonite. Anyway, Goku's rap was better.
"There's only one way this battle's gonna end, one more Superman who's never gonna walk again." LOL - BlazenSpirit
Easily one of the best. It's recent and thus doesn't get so much love.V 11 Comments
This was the most brutal roasting session I have ever seen, and I love it
Not top ten? I'm horrified by the state of the internet. But seriously, all you losers can kiss my ass. But you'd have to wait in line.
Your Freddie Mercury. Should be Freddie Uranus.
I think it should be at least at the top 5V 8 Comments
The line "I will shoot your moon boots straight up your poop shoot," gets me every time! Bonaparte is something straight out of Monty Python and Dynamite proves a very worthy adversary! Great rhymes and rhythms on both parts!
Good background music that suits the theme of both rappers in a crossover rap battle
You're the only Dynamite that is never going to bang :/
"You're the only type of dynamite that's nerver gonna bang" this is just awesome and the French in the video is so funny. Bonaparte definitely owned dynamiteV 5 Comments
First: The flow of both rappers is sick, especially Capone's.
Second: This is one of the rap battles with the most historical allusions in it.
Third: Not only does it allude to history, but it alludes to Assassin's Creed! A battle having both historical and pop-cultural references is hard to create. Props to them for that!
Fourth: "You spent time in Alcatraz- I'm sure you were fine if you dropped the soap as little as you drop dope lines." hilarious.
I mean that rat nest beard's trapped so many crumbs this bum could get marooned and still eat lunch for a month.
You ain't a tough guy my kids dress up like you for Halloween

6. Mr. T VS Mr. Rogers
5. Dr. Seuss VS William Shakesphere
4. Michael Bay Theme
3. Abe Lincoln VS Chuck Norris
2. Donald Trump Theme (Trump VS Scrooge)
1. Walt Disney Theme
You may of freed the slaves but chuck is everyone's master
Very funny chuck Norris won he doesn't fight he allows you to loose he doesn't swim water loves to be around him laugh out loud
"I'll rip your chest hairs out, put 'em in my mouth. I'll squash you like I squashed the south."V 5 Comments
I love the lyrics of the song and I love it. Beethoven destroyed the poor kid
I would smack you, but in Germany, we don't hit little girls!
Bethhoven rocked him up
And I'm glad I'm deaf so I don't have to hear thatV 6 Comments
Bruce Lee is the winner
Already on the list please remove.
Had great wordplay, and in my opinion is the best battle of season 3 so far.
The beat is beast
Already on the list, please remove.
The lyrics for EAP vs. SK were incredibly clever and Poe had a pretty beast bit (you know which bit I'm referencing to)
This was the first rap battle I saw
This needs to be at least in the top five actually if you don't mind its just the doctor and I live how he's like now calm down will you everything is going to be fine
Actually if you don't mind its just the doctor. Best line ever
THE BEST. Enough' saidV 3 Comments
Never knew Rogers was such a badass...
Mr. Rogers bro I mean really its funny as hell
I hope you don't mind if I rock sneakers till this battles over, so I don't get blood from your ugly face on my panty loafers
Mr Rogers slaughters T
"I'll chop you into 4 black dudes and remake cool runnings"
Clever line, and so so insulting!
Weird Al plays Newton. - Cyri
As Neil said the universe is infinite but this battle is finished.
Why is this down here? This is one of my best list. Specially when that cosmos host appeared from nowhere... Hilarious...
This was the funniest one and is extremely underratedV 4 Comments
Grace and Hannah rock this battle, this is definitely my favorite based primarily on their parts.
Romeo was so funny plus it is one of the best team battles, much better than the Mario one
The people they chose to play the girls were spot on! Definitely the bestV 2 Comments
Hold up... this guy spent 8 years studying barnacles dock... KICK IT
Honestly Ash has the best opening line ever. Got the highest speed stat, drop raps lightning fast is so good
It's an amazing rap with some good lines..."TB and scarlet fever, gotta catch 'em all! " "But when I Need a weak verse, I choose you! " "If you're looking for the fittest I'm the natural selection! " "Set sail and Galapago-suck on deez! "I'm not Charles Sheen, but I am Darwining! " "It took millions of years for mankind to evolve, now they're hunched over cell phones playing with your balls! " "As hard as the wood that Oak gave your mother"
Amazing - Manowar9V 2 Comments
The puns are amazing!
It's a good rap battle.
They both did good good rhymes and roasts so it's a tie for me - maloneyscottV 9 Comments
You couldn't break a piece of balsa, slap chop your face make a double chin salsa, if you look closely, you can see (Free gift if you order more than you need)
Ill craft a lyrical coffin and spit the nails in, call me arthur miller son, cause its death of a salseman!
I think this one is the best. - 445956
That ending with Disney makes it so true and great
Brilliant battle, and the most clean one in the series, with a total of 0 swears! A funky beat, great insults, and I laugh every time Kermit raps, but I love this battle because of Walt Disney's cameo at the end! Brilliant, and way to make Disney look like a house of torture and insanity!
I loved the way they put all the little cameos into their raps, and the psychological meaning it had with Walt and Stan mentioning Jim's death at an early age. Yet aside from that the lyrics were genius. By far my #1.V 7 Comments
Sherlock Holmes won. Hands down. I don't even think I can play devils advocate on my decision because Holmes owned him through the whole rap. Batman sounded like he smoked three packs of cigarettes then proceed to rap awkwardly after choking on water that went down the wrong way. Batman may have had some awesome lyrics but his presentation of the lyrics were corny. Sherlock Holmes destroyed him.
Both Batman and Sherlock start off okay, but their second verses are among the best ERB verses ever, in my opinion. Batman's verse is so brutal, and Sherlock is insanely clever. This is definitely in my top 5.
Batman:I'll crush your British nuts until they're bangers and mash, I've seen better detective work in tango and Cash
Another one that should be top 5 and for some reason isn't.V 4 Comments
Get my chair. I'm weary from tearing you a new derriere from here to red square. Absolutely awesome
Look alive, creme the kremlins arriving. Try to serve Ivan no surviving!
Frederick's whole performance is the best in this one. Too bad it is biased for Catherine.
That flute soloV 5 Comments
This is THE BEST hitler vs vader version ever! Boba Fett won it!
Ray William Johnson would be the epitome voice for Donald Duck & Knuckles the Echidna (mainly by the voice of Ray William Johnson himself).
I beat you twice you sellout, now you bow down to Mickey Mouse! - TacocheeseV 2 Comments
So funny and Leonidas I think think won
"Your in my world now Chief, THIS IS SPARTA! "
"Cortona says your Greek, so why don't you stick these lyrics up your ass." Really good use of the phrase going Greek. Hilarious reference to sodomy in ancient Greek culture.
300 asses need a kicking, give more teabags than lipton"- Master Chief
Even my initials spell M. C
The fact that this battle currently sits at #35 is very telling of the "clientele" ERB is forced to cater to. The lyricism, flow, delivery, rhyme schemes and savagery are all second to none here. AN ABSOLUTE MASTERPIECE.
The burns in this rap battle was INSANE. You should see how Renegades React reacted to this battle. I have to say that Thor had to take the win in this. Zeus had some dirt on Thor, but nothing compared to what Thor had on Zeus. The Greek mythology just has so many bad things about it that Thor can pick out and slap into his lyrics during the rap against Zeus.
Both Zeus and Thor set the standard for raps in the future, I mean they just leveled the playing field.
My god, this should be SO much higher. Insanely clever lyrics, unbelievable flow, and a pretty sick beat combine to form what is a Top 5 ERBoH, without a doubt.V 4 Comments
The one that started it all. They have some fire in this one and it gives it a more passionate vibe.
John Lennon Won
I hate that everyone says John Lennon won this one. I'm not a Bill O Reilly fan, but in this erb, he won. All of those Beetles references that he mad were pretty clever.
The og rap battle
First video I watch of there’s. It always gets stuck in my head at random times
I honestly, liked this one, but it was too obvious that J. R. R. Tolkien won.
The lyrics were amazing the beat was good best rap battle yet
Martin won hands down. His flow was amazing.V 2 Comments
I don't like either of them but Donald completely tore up Hillary. But Abe won anyway
it is lit
Yeah Abe won
Gandalf kicked his ass and then fed it to a overweight cow named john
The Prophecy never mentioned the day I'd kick your ass back to Gandalf the grey.
Your ass is like gringotts everyone makes a deposit hahaaha
The wordplay in this one is some of their best writing. The only problem is that for people to really enjoy it, they need to know the history of Edison and Tesla, and the nature of the technology being developed.
"The world would curse the con Edison with every utility"... that's gold right there.
I give this my vote in part because I almost cracked a rib laughing the first time I saw it and in part because I keep watching it again because the flow and lyrics are so great. For those that don't know the story and want ANOTHER laugh today, there's a comic explaining it all in brief at theoatmeal.com/comics/tesla (no dry science, I promise)
Nikola was way more intelligent and if it weren't for him I wouldn't be typing this right now. Plus the lyrics were awesome and so catchy
"Your a geek, plagued by OCD, you never had sex but you sure got screwed by me! " Couldn't stop laughing! - EpicHorrorMaster
Wayne had epic rhymes and Tony's flow sounded extremely nice
This should be way higher. Both Vader and Hitler have some awesome lines and its probably the best of the Hitler vs Vader trilogy.
Hitler won. God curse Darth Vader..
This was the best out of the three raps RAWR LIKE CHEWBACCA THE VOICE OF MUFASA
One of my favorite ones because almost every line was a funny insult unlike other battles.
Ali offended me when he said space jam sucks - maloneyscott
It had both flow and epic lines. They actually rapped properly instead of others like clint eastwoods talk-rapping
I Liked the part were Muhammad Ali said to Michael Jordan I saw you slapping Regie Miller boy what's wrong with you you fight like those girls that make your Nike shoesV 1 Comment
This was great - iliekpiez
Love it, great costumes, sick bars. Amazing.
One of the best Epic Rap Battles to date.
The opening line made me die, "Bully! A challange! I love competition, tell me, where would I mount the stuffed head of a Winston".V 2 Comments
Characters from my two favorite shows ever, how could I not choose this, "No one saw Shane coming, except for your wife."
This is just it. I've seen most others and I've never liked any better than this (except the Vader vs Hitler ones)
I'm so sorry for the narration that bites by zombie at the end...
They nailed the characters perfect. The 'Carl, get back' was spot on!V 3 Comments
Very well thought out lyrics and design. It flowed well and didn't have untimely pauses that plague some of the others. Probably the closest rap battle in my opinion but I'd give it to Caesar
This one was awesome and is it me or does Julius Caesar look like supermariologan?
It was cool at the end
The most emotion and the hardest lines.
EpicLLOYD could voice Sonic the Hedgehog & Nice Peter could voice Bomberman.V 1 Comment
Why is this under Godzilla vs King kong. That one doesn't even excist. This is just such a clever rap battle, it surprises me how many votes it has: ZERO
The feel the wrath of Kahn line was clever, loved this erb.
No it's ZERO POINT FOUR
This is my 2nd favorite, Jack the ripper vs Hannibal Lecter being my number 1! Both had some good and funny lines. This needs more votes! Jeez!
Tension rose. Tension blossomed. Every single rhyme I find increasingly bettering as the rap progresses. It's stupendous!
