Top Ten Epic Rap Battles of History

The Top Ten

1 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. - 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 channel

There the best

2 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.

The best lines. Ever. "Whyd you name your company after your dick?! " Like come on, hilarious.

3 Einstein vs Stephen Hawking

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!

There are ten million million million million million million million million million particles in the universe that we can observe
Your mama took the ugly ones and put them into one nerd!

4 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!

5 Steven Spielberg vs Alfred Hitchcock

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.

The best of Season 4 (so far). And probably my most favorite one of them all.

The most references I have seen in any erb

6 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.

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. - higgsboson2142

I liked the beat of this and the cleverness of the lines! I think this is the best one with Jack getting the win

7 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.

The best but I honestly think Dr suess vs william shakespear
is better then this song

8 Skrillex vs. Mozart

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."

Mozart definitely won. Obviously. Mozart always wins.

9 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"

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'm the Head of State, you're a head of cabbage"- I lost it. - puppylover

10 Stephen King vs Edgar Allan Poe

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.

Once upon a midnight dreary as I spit this weak and weary I will choke this joker with a trochee till his cheeks are teary. was one of my favorite lines

The Contenders

11 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.

Hands down the best beat/ melody of any of the rap battles! Watsky's fast rapping definitely solidifies this as the best one.

I bet you wrote the twilight books too! - Tacocheese

12 Frank Sinatra vs Freddie Mercury

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 5

Frank and Freddie OTP - One True Punchdown!

13 Elvis Presley vs Micheal Jackson

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. - BlazenSpirit

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

Loved this one! Awesome stuff

14 Artists vs TMNT

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.

I wish this could be longer! I LOVE TMNT and the Artist (although I do think that the Artists pulled off a win there).

Funny lines, catchy beat and the artists won

15 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 :/

Some well-made lines

16 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.

Best ERB ever.

17 Batman vs Sherlock Holmes

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

Nothing makes me laugh, but I bet your raps can

18 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 - BlazenSpirit

The SOng Reference was cool

19 Doc Brown vs Doctor Who

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' said

20 Justin Bieber vs Beethoven

I love the lyrics of the song and I love it. Beethoven destroyed the poor kid

Bethhoven rocked him up

Beethoven definitely won.
