Top Ten Epic Rap Battles of History

The Top Ten

Darth Vader vs Hitler

You need to wash up dog, here step in my shower!

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.

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 channel

You got the people fired up, wrote a paper got them fired up, but when your bunker got fired up, you put a gun in your mouth and fired-Darth Vader

Bill Gates vs Steve Jobs

The beat is really catchy and they say such clever things

You blow, jobs! You arrogant prick, with your second hand jeans and your turtleneck Ill drill a hole in then middle of your bony head with you own little spinning beach ball of death! Hippy! You got given up a birth. I give away your net worth to AiDS research! Combine all your little toys and I still crush that. iPhone? IPad? I own, I smack!

I spent about 10 minutes trying to decide between this one and Albert vs Stephen.

I think it was HALs portion that made me pick this one. The line 'I'm sorry Bill, I can't let you do that' sounds too awesome in that voice.

Very catchy I love it the most

Einstein vs Stephen Hawking

tho its true that my work is based on you I'm a super computer your like a TI-82

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! "

"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. "

I'm the giant who's shoulders you would've stood on - if you could stand! I'll give you a brief history of pain with the back of my hand!

Rasputin vs Stalin (vs Lenin vs Gorbachev vs Putin)

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.

This is the most brilliant and the best one, if you know a little history about the Soviet Union, after every sentence you would burst out laughing!

Steven Spielberg vs Alfred Hitchcock


The battle begins like normally (jk because the music was legendary). The two have a single verse each, until they are interrupted by Tarantino. The three each make the time to roast Michael Bay, and then Kubrick shows up on a tricycle to glorify himself. He takes a final shot at Bay, and then Bay flies in on a helicopter to teach them all a lesson.


This one was probably the most entertaining and exciting. It's so full of surprises and also EA are bad

Michael Bay won
Got a gift from above and eyes of an eagle
When it comes to blowing up no director is my equal

Superb use of a director's movies as disses. And 5 rappers!

Skrillex vs. Mozart

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! )

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."

Jack the Ripper vs Hannibal Lecter

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.

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!

I voted for Edison vs Tesla, but I gotta give props and hope for this one to get up there too. This one was great! Mostly because of the addition of Dan Bull.

Eastern Philosophers vs Western Philosophers

Just for the line: "Let me be frank. Don't start beef with the Frank who hangs with B. Franks giving ladies beef franks!

Don't make Nietzsche come over there and put a knee up in your chi.

The best one. Second is probably the directors one.

This is the best, hands down.

Stephen King vs Edgar Allan Poe

The most underrated battle EVER. How Stephen ended the first verse was I.M.O. the 4th best bar in all or erb.

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.

Mitt Romney vs Barack Obama

"You got the momma jeans, and a mister fantastic face - so rich and white it's like I'm runnin' against a cheesecake"


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 joke

The Newcomers

? The Joker vs Pennywise

The Contenders

Deadpool vs Boba Fett

Ooh whats that a missile backpack I guess you'll be right if a bird attacks

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!

Boba Fett won because of his last line, Deadpool was winning the first part but Boba Fett won it.

Best one for clash! There wasn't a single line that lacked straight fire!

Doctor Seuss vs Shakespeare

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.

Frank Sinatra vs Freddie Mercury

My favourite Epic Rap Battle of History. And Freddie Mercury owned it.

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.

I think it should be at least at the top 5

Elvis Presley vs Micheal Jackson

How about MICHAEL Jackson's name be spelt correctly? It ain't rocket science to spell the name Michael correctly!

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.

"I didn't lose any chocolate. I just added vanilla! " lol

Loved this one! Awesome stuff

Artists vs TMNT

I love Smosh and Rhett&Link, they were both in there! Link is Leonardo, Rhett is Donatello, Anthony is Rafael and Ian is Michelangelo.

the architects of rebirth are rap addicts u beat the foot but it wont go well

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.

Goku vs Superman

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

Easily one of the best. It's recent and thus doesn't get so much love.

The Wright Brothers vs The Mario Brothers

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.

Sorry wright brothers this time you chose wrong...

Abe Lincoln vs Chuck Norris

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."

4 score and 65 years in the past I won the civil war with my beard

Napoleon Bonaparte vs Napoleon Dynamite

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 dynamite

Blackbeard vs Al Capone

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

Two bad ass legends up against each other, the fierce power and brutality of Blackbeard vs the wit and charisma of Capone.

Clint Eastwood vs Bruce Lee

Bruce Lee is the winner

Already on the list please remove.

Theodore Roosevelt vs Winston Churchill

This is my fave due to it being one of the closest rap battles on the channel. There was no winner, both Roosevelt and Churchill kept in it up til the final lines. + "I'm about to take you out prematurely, like your family", "rhyme minister" and "My parents died, while they were young and it was morbid
But at least they didn't ditch me when they were alive like yours did". Damn, this battle was savage!

I love this as t shows the most patriotic Brit vs the most patriotic Yank so awesome Dan Bull as Churchill nailed it and EpicLloyd Played it splendid my altimeter favourite

Love it, great costumes, sick bars. Amazing.

One of the best Epic Rap Battles to date.

Justin Bieber vs Beethoven

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 that

Alexander the Great vs Ivan the Terrible

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.

I absolutely loved Alexander, Frederick, and I thought the Pompey part was hilarious, but Catherine had basically no good lines and she acted like a fake modern pop star.

Edgar Allan Poe vs Stephen King

Had great wordplay, and in my opinion is the best battle of season 3 so far.

The beat is beast

The lyrics for EAP vs. SK were incredibly clever and Poe had a pretty beast bit (you know which bit I'm referencing to)
